I'm sure you're all as shocked as I was that I didn't get June Cleaver.
The kids and I went out for Chinese food after church this morning then headed out to Walmart to pick a few things up. I ran into some issues and ended up standing in 3 different lines before I finally got it straightened out while the kids waited for me in the car. Once the guy got my mulch loaded up I jumped in the passengers seat and told Angel #4 to get going, but I guess not. While they were waiting for me, they noticed a guy standing in the parking lot with a bouquet of roses, obviously waiting for someone. Since they already had so much time invested in watching him wait (their words, not mine), they wouldn't leave the parking lot until the person he was waiting for showed up. I said it was obviously going to be his mom, since it's mother's day, but WE was sure he was waiting for his girlfriend to get off her cashiers shift so he could propose in the Walmart parking lot. Well, after waiting for a half hour the guy's mom comes out of Walmart and he gives her the flowers and a hug. So yeah, we creepered on a guy for half an hour to see him give his mom flowers. And please note: this did not give my kids the idea to get me anything for Mother's Day, the rotten bums. Angel #4 had an awesome blond moment last night. There's something wrong with the dash of our minivan and every once in awhile, all the gauges, speedometer and that stuff all shut down. The van runs fine, you just don't know how fast you're going or how much gas you have, that kind of thing. Usually, all you have to do is karate chop the dash and everything turns back on, I call it doing a Hong Kong Phooey. Last night, when she was taking her boyfriend home, the gauges went out on Angel #4, we Hong Kong Phooey'ed it a couple of times, but it wasn't working. It isn't far to her boyfriend's house, so she just drove without the gauges until she got him home, once he was dropped off, she asked if she turned the van off, then on again, if that would help and I told her it was worth a try. So that's what she did, then she started slamming on the dash again and said, well it worked for everything but the speedometer and hit the dash again. I looked at her and said, you realize the speedometer is on zero because you're not going anywhere, right?? We laughed hysterically the whole ride back home.
