It's around 830 pm, sitting in front of the tv, watching Smallville, and eating my salad for dinner. (By the way, my kids LOVE salad! Lately, all we've had on our table is healthy stuff, I'm going "gung-ho" on eating healthier and maintaining my weight and I've realized if you don't have the junk in the house, the kids will eat what you give them! )
The phone rings.
"Hi, Ronalyn! Are you busy?"
A little confused as to why Lori is calling from her cell asking if I was busy. Is she having her baby, now?
"Uhmm (chewing my food too, yes I talk with my mouth full!) no just eating and watching tv?"
"Are you dressed?"
"Yeah!" (What do my friends think, I prance around the house naked? Well just not Thursdays ;)
"Good, we'll be there in 5 minutes!"
"Wait a minute, I do not like surprises, what is going on.. you better tell me!"
"We can't! Bye!"
Well, as long as I can remember, I've always been the type of person that just does not like the element of surprise! Sure it sweeps me off my feet when someone takes the time and go out of their way to surprise me, like visiting me unexpectedly! But I prefer to know about these things in advance. But it's one of the sweetest gestures to show someone you truly care, eh? The worst part, my hubby is the same way! We can't keep anything from one another! During Christmas, we open everything or peek into everything before Christmas. (So my MIL and SIL actually write the wrong names on the gifts because they know we will open them!)
So, can you imagine the look on my face when these ladies came in my house with a huge box, titled Barista Expresso Machine all for, none other than ME!
I can't tell you how long I've been wanting something like this!
There was a LOT of hugging going around! (And how well do these ladies know me, bringing their camera so they can take a picture, they know I take pics of everything!)
So there is my new obsession, my new Espresso Maker! You can bet I will be one happy, awake, and cheerful person in the mornings! But for tonight, I must watch the DVD on how to use this mega machine!
Oh my is it Friday! Okay speaking of obsessions, I cannot stop saying lines from the movie Borat ! Oh it's so funny in the worst way possible!
"This is Natalya. She is my sister. She is number-four prostitute in whole of Kazakhstan."
"My jacket is black..............Not......" ~Borat
But I think it's definitely not a movie for everyone! Alright, enjoy your weekend!
