Bing!


Hi Bing! Thanks for having us over today and feeding us. They might have been quiet, but, the boys had a great time. (Sorry for the old picture, but I love this picture and so do the boys!)

Before you spill it, I’ll just tell everyone that the boys and I played a VERY long game of Clue this afternoon. Andy decided to make his guess after about three turns. We were sitting on the porch playing the game and we made Andy go inside to look at the cards in the “secret” envelope. Andy returned to the porch and said he had something to tell us. We shooed him away, not wanting him to ruin our game. TWO hours later, Ian made a guess at the cards. Ugh. We should have listened to Andy. The stupid enveloped had two room cards and a weapon card. Gah. Listen to the short people.

On the way home, we stopped at Costco to pick up two take and bake pizzas, batteries for Ian’s upcoming summer camp. Go figure, I was on an impulse-buying rampage. We bought a box of Sham-Wow’s (yes, they make you say WOW) for Ian to use as towels at camp and then I went totally crazy . . . are you sitting? I bought us new Tupperware! Fancy stuff with snap-lock lids. it means I’m old, doesn’t it, when I keep going to check the drawer with my new tupperware, doesn’t it? I’m insanely excited about this stuff. No more topping off nasty plastic ware with foil lids. No more messy tupperware drawer. Woohoo – does anything scream “I’m going to be 44 in a week” more than this?

Sadly, the kids and I all agreed we’re not getting out enough. We spent a full two hours messing with the new Sham-Wow’s. And we had a blast doing it. Anyone local with carpet who is willing to let us dump grape juice or red wine on your carpet to see what happens with the Sham-Wow’s? We’ll bring lunch!

Exciting stuff, I know. Tomorrow, we’re headed to WalMart and maybe even IKEA. I know, I know – bring the smelling salts.

  1. Hey, you're leaving the house, so that's always a good sign. When y'all start hibernating for weeks on end, I'll call the authorities, LOL.

  2. First of all take it easy on calling yourself old. I'm 44 and I am NOT old! 🙂

    Second, I had to google Sham-Wow. I had no idea what they were. Now I know – I might have to look for them next time I go to Costco.

  3. I often wonder when you start apologizing or explaining yourself if someone has sent you a mean email or if this is just coming out of your head.

    If it is coming out of your head…well, don't apologize or feel the need to explain or justify.

    If someone is being mean to you in email…well let me at them with a soap sock!

  4. I certainly appreciate the fact that you're not getting out much. It means you cleaned out your book shelves and sent me a book! 🙂

    I got it yesterday, thank you so much!! I really appreciate it, and I can't wait to get started.
