Fun Family Math

One very cool thing about my family is the way the numbers of our birthdays fall. There is a definite pattern of numbers and my mom played those numbers on one of her Las Vegas trips and actually won Keno money from them. The birthdays for the 5 of us run 21, 19, 17, 15 and 13. Isn’t that cool?

That numbering pattern didn’t follow through with my kids. Mine were born on the 1, 2 and 4.

Happy Birthday, Mom

It’s my mom’s birthday. I have to look up the date of the year and do the math to figure out how old she is, but I have to do that with everyone in the family now. The only one I know exactly how old they are is my brother, who is exactly 10 years younger than me.

I sent mom a Hallmark card and a gift card to a nice restaurant, so hopefully she will have a nice meal without having to cook. She was planning a nice quiet day at home, hope she enjoys her special day.

Deals To Be Found

Was considering purchasing some type of musical instrument for my nieces birthday since she is showing signs of actually have some talent that most of our family inherits, on both sides, so maybe she got a double dose. There might be a need for head phones like the sennheiser hd 201 one that I pictured below, for her parents to use while she is learning a instrument like the sax!

Her mother has been urging her to try and learn the saxophone, of all things. I’ll keep my opinion to myself on this subject. I’ve been spending a bit of time online at various websites checking out what it is out there these days and for how much. Berg Larsen seems to keep popping up with saxophones and their various equipment that is needed for such a complicated musical instrument. But like I said I’ll keep my opinion on the choice of musical instruments to myself.

Happy Dance

The musiciansfriend.com guitar parts that I ordered earlier in the month has arrived. I can’t wait to see my daughter’s face on her birthday morning when she opens up the box that contains this wonderful gift that she has no idea that I am getting it for her at all. I am keeping this gift hidden down stairs and will wait until all the other presents are all open and done with before going down and getting it to hand directly to her at that moment.

My mother did that to me one year. I really wanted a new clock radio and was so disappointing that there was no more of the presents with my name on it contained this much wanted new piece of technology. My mother proceeded to go in the other room and came back with a wrapped present and gave it to me to open, with everyone’s attention concentrated on me. I’m glad that no one was taping that morning because I know that I must have done the craziest “happy dance” of all times, not something that I would want to be on film for people to watch and laugh at in the future. I mean really it could possibly end up on YouTube, how horrible would that be?

Baby Showers

I remember when I looked up the History of baby showers when I was put in charge of the baby shower games and prizes for a large surprise baby shower. This particular celebration was being held for one of my co workers that worked with me in the HR department, which was a fairly large department so we expected a good amount of people to attend. We invited her family, her best friend as well as her husband (who actually brought his mother along as well) so we ended up with almost 50 people, that is a big baby shower to put on.

Anyway, I spent a good amount of time online looking for all kinds of information and help with the task that I was selected to take care of. Seeing all of the new born baby products that they have these days and how cute all those little tiny things look always gets to me, so soft and fluffy, sweet pastel colors and designs tend to bring out those feelings of wanting to have a baby. I mean really those adorable baby animal hats that are all the rage these days! You have to understand that I am a hat freak to start with so having a baby to adorn their little heads with all the little hats as well, it’s just too wild not to think and dream about.

Then after the baby shower was all done and over with, the mother-to-be was very happy with customized baby blankets that I had special ordered and gave to her and the tons of other stuff that she walked out of there with, I went to the grocery store on my way home. Standing in line behind me was a mother dealing with her bratty and out of control two year old and her newborn that was not happy about being there one bit. So after hearing all of that commotion I can tell you that I snapped out of the very strong and ever growing urge to have another baby – real quick like!
