|Cheerful Box Boy!|
He has already worked a few shifts and can hardly wait for that first paycheck. What is he doing? Well, he's a "courtesy clerk" (box boy!) at a local grocery store. The most amusing part? He has to wear a tie. That just cracks me up.
A first job...what an exciting thing. Do you remember yours? After babysitting and housework, mine was McDonald's.
I ask him to pose for a picture before work today. He even granted me a boon and gave me a small smile. The things his mother asks of him...
While the boy was at work, the girl and I headed off for some girl time: pedicures! Flip flops in hand, we headed out. (Do you remember when flip flops were thongs and thong didn't reference lingerie? Man, I'm old!)
I confess that I didn't really need polished toes as much as I "needed" to sit in the massage chair and soak my feet. Don't you love those massage chairs? Buttercup told me we needed one at home. Being a good mother, I told her she should ask her father. Poor man.
Anyway, she went with neon orange and flowers. Aren't they cute? Can you tell we are desperate for summer to get here? These are definitely "summer" toes.
Finally, dinner tonight was a new one for me and it was a screaming success! This one came from The Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals and lived up to the description. It was a recipe for Pork Chops and Shredded Brussel Sprouts which was fabulously simple.
|A little deviation: I added bacon to our brussel sprouts.|
Day 7 was a good one...can you tell?
