The kids and I had such a busy day today. From the moment we woke up we have been running. Poor little boys had to try and keep up. We started at West Ed, which was a zoo. I must have had some pent up anger cause one of the crazy “carnies” got a hold of me and I LOST it on her!! She starts yappin at me about how she loves my necklace and I need to come over to her stand so she can straighten my hair. I usually have curly hair but I had no mousse so I straightened my hair today. I started yelling at her, “ARE YOU SERIOUS?!! DOES IT LOOK LIKE I HAVE TIME FOR YOU TO STRAIGHTEN MY ALREADY STRAIGHT HAIR?!!” She then proceeded to point to my girls and tell me how she could curl their hair with her magic straightener. I lost it again! “YOU HAVE GOT TO BE JOKING?!! DOES IT LOOK LIKE I HAVE THE TIME FOR YOU TO CURL THEIR HAIR WHEN I HAVE 5 LITTLE KIDS WITH ME?!!!” And then we left. Man it felt good to yell at her. This sounds like a horrible thing to do but anyone that lives here and has experienced the “carnies” in west ed will definitely be cheering me on! The are relentless!
Anyway, we ended up having lunch at the mall and while I was going from restaurant to restaurant getting food for the kids, a very nice old man decided he wanted to sit with us. I got back to the table with the kids and he was just sitting there eating his lunch. My kids were just staring at him. I think it totally freaked them out. I ended up sitting right beside him and we had a great chat. Just a lonely old guy that obviously needed some kid interaction. I could tell that he was very genuine when he told me to “enjoy this time, it goes by so quickly.” Some days it’s hard to just “enjoy” it but my resolution this year is to try harder to “just enjoy it.”
Now onto our giveaway!! This one tonight is going to have all your hubby’s and boyfriends very excited! They get to sit back and enjoy someone else changing their oil! This would be a great stocking stuffer or gift for anyone really. Paul from Econolube in Spruce Grove is giving away a FREE oil change!!!! The owner is a client of mine and I know that they are super duper perfectionists so I know that their business is probably run the same way. It’s definitely a good thing! This is where we take our vehicles to get the oil changed. We have been so impressed with the service! The staff are friendly and very thorough. Well worth the money.
