Uuuuuggggg....

Open House for everyone is tonight. It's time to take the school supply lists to Wally World today I think. I'm dreading it. I'll go by myself to fight the madness alone... Any other time of the year, I'm all for perusing the office/school supply isle. 23 isles of office/school supplies is too much for me to handle. It's like pencil overload...

Born Cool initiated some board game fun last night. We operated on Homer Simpson and followed that with a game of Trouble. He, Mystery Man and I played and no one cheated. Mystery Man and I followed up with a card game of War. Old Soul flipped out because the Guitar Hero disc wouldn't work. He was having a fit on Born Cool because he thought he damaged the disc. B.C. was calm an told his older brother several times he'd put the disc in wrong. Nope, Old Soul was not hearing any of this. He was certain B.C. has ruined it. Anyway, I looked up and told him to take the disc out. It was in backwards. Oh, how I love sibling rivalry. This was all after going to the pool. Again. They're probably not, but I'm completely water-logged.

So, ever have one of those moments when you just want to crawl under a rock and die? Sure, we all do. Yesterday, this guy from a local company comes by to give us a $20 gas card. All we have to do is sit through his demonstration. He comes in the house and hasn't had any air in his car, so he's hot and nervously worked up. I gave him a glass of water and he's trying to calm himself down. Through surface discussion, Rain finds out what he's selling. Well, a college buddy of Rain's sold these things; and he immediately decides he's not sitting through this demonstration. After a really awkward "talk", I had my tail tucked between my legs and ushered the man to our door. Rain basically kicked him out. I told him I was sorry. I was mortified. And, I didn't get my gas card. Ever thought you married someone SO opposite of you, it's literally painful? I thought sitting there for around 40 minutes would have totally been worth that little gas card. And, no, I would not have bought the product. Maybe this is just a man/woman issue? Regardless, it was my painful moment. Lesson learned.

So, one of my buddies is doing a giveaway. I haven't run across one of these yet and think it's super fun! Check it out... http://georgienba.blogspot.com/2008/08/giveaway15-amazon-gcgiveaway.html. It ends tonight, so get moving!

So interesting about Rain sending away the gas card guy. Mr. Lipstick sold pizza coupon books door-to-door in Memphis while I was in pharm school. When those guys come around, he always takes them bottles of water, etc. I, however, hide because it kinda freaks me out. Don't know why.

BTW, I just love the blog names you picked out, especially Rain and FlowerGirl. Cool innuendo. *wink*

I hate school supply shopping too! Our school offers a bundle package at the end of the year, I've done that the last 2 years and LOVED IT!
