Random Thoughts - A Day Early...or a Week Late...
It’s January and just when you thought it couldn’t get any more depressing, let me say this - it’s a mere 11 more months until Christmas. Feel better?
We are in the deep freeze at the moment. Yesterday morning, I woke up to it being minus 27 Celsius or in Fahrenheit that would be….um….somewhere around friggin chilly.
Speaking of chilly… J got frostbite on his cheeks (not his ass ones) when he was snow blowing the driveway on the weekend. He was out for only an hour, but the wind was nasty and hence the only exposed flesh got it. He’s not disfigured or anything, so no pictures.
It was our nephew’s birthday party on the weekend. It was at the local bowling alley. One would think bowling would keep 7 year old boys entertained – apparently not. Playing hide and seek in plain sight was much more entertaining. Sometimes, juvenile boys are just dumb…
Speaking of dumb, my sister-in-law did think it was necessary to provide the adult guests with beverages, enough food or any forks for the birthday cake. This is the second year in a row that forks were not provided. Don’t even get me started on the food or beverage issue. Next year, I’m too busy to attend.
I should mention however that the sister-in-law did think it was a fantastic idea to stock the birthday goodie bags with whistles and mini rubber balls. Let me say this - seven boys with rubber balls, whistles and birthday cake icing everywhere do not combine well with the bowling lanes. Never mind being busy next year – we won’t be welcomed back to the bowling alley. I’m sure of it…thank God.
What the hell is wrong with the formatting on Blogger? I can't seem to fix the spaces in between my paragraphs. *sigh*
