With all the world’s problems, it seems somewhat silly to blog about my day so far…it was full of minor inconveniences…but here I go!
I ended up walking to McDonald’s at high noon, in the middle of a play date. Q received a Happy Meal, and with it, a Silver Surfer action figure.
It’s nap time now, and Q is quite upset (not “Happy” as advertised) because the Silver Surfer does not have any hair. He’s supposed to have hair, because he is a boy.
I don’t feel like explaining how I ended up walking myself to McDonald’s mid-play date, but it involved some bare tires, a procrastinating husband, a business trip, a cancelled play trip, a new invitation to my house, a last minute house showing, a pregnant and understanding friend, and a shortage of car seats. Whew.
The people who saw my house this morning better buy it. I mean, it’s only fair…but then again, the Silver Surfer is bald, so I guess there’s no real knowing what sort of circumstance will be handed to you, even if you’re a superhero.
In my imagination, I think that when I invite a person over for a visit, I’ll have tea, and scones, and a cute ruffled apron…maybe even some cucumber sandwiches. This has never happened. Ever.
After this morning, I have come to the conclusion that it is very hard to be my friend, at least, it’s hard if you like cucumber sandwiches and the like. You might even need protective headgear to hang out with me.
Okay, that was a stretch, but I had this funny picture I needed to work in:
Oh oh! And this one (so cute):
Warning All Potential Friends: My family is weird and disorganized, and some of us like to play dress up in our underwear.
You’ve been warned.
I would like to thank Jessica Young again for being so understanding, and allowing her son to play with my son, despite the unexpected surfacing of a mystery rash on Q.
Here’s to friendship and the viruses that go with it! I had a good time despite the chaos.
Check out the Young family website to see what they are up to! It’s much more exciting than my news; they are going to become full time missionaries in Thailand soon.
