Happy Saturday/My Mom’s 70th Birthday!!!! I put up a special post just for her earlier today which is not getting the traffic/comments that I think it deserves. WARNING: I am putting up a post for my sister’s birthday tomorrow and that one REQUIRES comments! The whole point is to get y’all to comment. So be ready!
Birthday birthday! We got my Mom a kayak. It was VERY COMPLICATED. Hard to find one for one thing, they are all sold out, but my Dad finally tracked it down. And the company ships the thing to your door. Only problem being, we needed it shipped to the lake house and we weren’t at the lake house. So we had to send a secret message to the whole family “if you are at the lake house and a truck comes to drop off a Kayak, accept delivery! And hide it somewhere!” It worked perfectly in the end, the truck came two days ago while Mom was having a nap, Dad and I snuck it around to the side of the house, and then we woke up super early this morning to carry it in and leave it on the porch for her to find.
She got to unwrap the plastic and get the paddle out and stuff, and then I dropped Albie Dog in it, because I thought that would be cute. And it was!
No real big plans for the rest of the day, we are making strawberry shortcake, at some point we will put in the Kayak in the water to paddle around and practice, and I kind of want to throw Albie Dog off the pier. He hates the water, which I find very amusing. Also, he looks super cute in his little life jacket.
Finally, regular Saturday Small Talk thing (not a special birthday thing), we have all seen Shahrukh’s new video, right? Very weird car ad, but GREAT HAIR. Oh, and was I the only person who got distracted by a 1 to 4 teacher-student ratio?
