Now, some of you may have hubbies or boy toys who love to do the gift for no reason thing....Well let me just say Lucky You! I love my man to death but gifts out of the blue are few and far between. Actually, up until yesterday they were a never gonna happen thing. Not to say that Glade doesn't do wonderful little surprises like clean the house, do dishes, make breakfast, etc. He just has always said that flowers and small gifts were a waste of money because flowers die, candy gets eaten, and little trinkets get lost. So you can imagine my sheer shock when out of the blue Glade comes strolling through the door yesterday after work with this pretty pink dozen. I seriously asked him if one of our customers was trying to get rid of some flowers or something. When he finally convinced me that he actually walked into a store and bought them just for me and just because, well I was speechless. I know they are just flowers but it was such a wonderful surprise and it really made my day! And my Week for that matter!
The flowers were a big up lifter especially because I was feeling pretty geeked out about my cell phone. Glade and I have the exact same cell phone so we have been looking for a way to tell them apart. I don't know what I was thinking but for some crazy reason I decided to glam up my cell with some sparkles. Well, not only did it take a freaking hour, it turned out to be a lot harder than I thought, and in the end it looked so awful. My phone looked like a Be-Dazzle Reject! And all the gems are already falling off so now I guess I am going to scrape the rest off and find another solution to our phone delima. I can live without the bling bling phone for now!
I have to add this story though: while I was peeling the gems off their plastic casing page, McCoy was so interested and wanted to "play" too. So I gave him an extra sheet of gems and let him peel them off. After about five minutes of struggeling to peel off the tiny gems and then fighting with them to come off his hands, clothes, etc,. He finally threw his hands in the air, wiped his brow and said, "Pheww mom, this is a realy hard Game. I not winning."
