Anywho as I was saying my parents 40th is coming up. Now my mom has absolutely 100% vetoed, kaiboshed (sp?), forbidden and all out pooped upon any idea of a shindig. So pressures off right? No!! Cause I'm a good daughter. I want to do something for them that doesn't totally fall under the category of lame.
Option #1: Send em to Reno by bus. Ooops forgot about the new passport laws. We (meaning Canadians) can no longer step foot over the border sans passport. (Notice the french I threw in there? It's a Canadian thing)
Option #2: Send em to a Hockey game. Oops all the Canuck games have been sold out for the past two years. I can buy them tickets if I sign up for some membership thing and buy somebody season ticket holders tickets for a game at the price of $217.00 a pop plus fees and taxes yada yada yada.
Option #3: Take em out to a swanky restaurant sans (again with the French) my 3 children because hey they're still at the let's crawl under the table and explore stage. Never mind that swanky restaurants don't even have crayons.
Option #4: Have supper at my brother's house. Either cook or get it catered. HMMM that has more possibilities but does it fall under the lameness category?
It's just so hard to figure out. My mom's being a bit of a party pooper. Dad wouldn't mind a party I am sure but my mom is tired of family bs etc. Never mind the fact that I'm trying to plan it with a man (that is my brother). I talk to his wife but then she has to talk to him and it just goes round and round and round.
So... so far I've got this (see pic above). I just ordered if off of Ebay and I'm going to do our family tree. Hopefully. Maybe. We'll see. Don't sound too confident do I? You all know how tough it is juggling kids, work and projects. So it's a we'll see. I'm gonna give it my darndest and hope for the best.
