This morning when he left for work, Perry took Rachael and Becca to drop them at a friend’s house for a late birthday present: a trip to see Cinderella by Ballet San Antonio! They loved it!
Speaking of ballet, several of the girls attended a performance of The Nutcracker many years ago, but while they did enjoy it, they didn’t appreciate the men’s costumes. Apparently those costumes left little to the imagination, and my young girls came home embarrassed and giggling. That particular play will forevermore be referred to as The Buttcracker. If you think that’s bad, just keep in mind that it’s an attempt to redirect attention from what else was on display that fateful day.
Next on the agenda: I bought a table and chairs from Craigslist. It was a spectacular deal on a table almost exactly like the one we bought 15 years ago, except for two differences: the old one didn’t come with 6 chairs, and the new one doesn’t look like it’s been used by a horde of angry savages for 15 years.
First, a little flexing to get the blood going. This table is heavy.
They’ve got this. No sweat.
An hour of scrubbing, 5 minutes of assembly, and the clock has been turned back 15 years, except Kaitlyn is no longer 3 years old and 3 feet tall. She’s still a little weird, though. I’m not sure that will ever change.
Umm…who was watching the little ones while we worked? Apparently, no one.
Later in the day, I grabbed a bodyguard and went to pick up my latest Craigslist deal, a sweet deal on over 300 lbs. of weights. We missed the 1,000 free crickets, though. You win some, you lose some.
Sorry, Phineas. Better luck next time.
Wait, did I say Kaitlyn was weird? She’s not the only one.
Not by a long shot.
Shhh. I think it runs in the family.
