I got up this morning and made a nice birthday breakfast for all of us. Mmmmm, mmmmm good! Everything I cook is from the skillet. And I mean everything. This morning we had pan toast, scrambled eggs, kilbasa for the kids, juice, tea, and coffee. Sweet. Ok, after breakfast me, Elizabeth, and Michael left to do some birthday shopping. We knew what Mom wanted so we headed out to the underground mall. She wanted a tea pot and a tea cup. Mom drinks alot of black tea and they have a special cup and tea pot to make it in. Since it is Saturday the underground mall shops are mostly closed. So we had to hoof it to a big department store. I had to count on the kids to help me in the department store to find the "foot" tea pot. Luckily Michael lead us in the right direction and I was able to find what I was looking for. It actually ended up much better. There was a nice selection and good prices. The kids wanted to get her something too. Michael got her a stuffed dog that looked like Max. Elizabeth got her 3 roses.
Then we raced upstairs and gave Mom the presents. She was beaming with joy. We spent a total of about $30 and Mom loved everything.
Ok for entertainment purposes only. Sharon commented on people cutting in line. I will elaborate. They have invented the sideways line here. This is where there is a line of people who set you up and then cut in front of you. It's totally obvious. Here if you look the other way while you are in line, you get smoked. If you try to tell them something like, "hey, you cut in line", they just ignore you like you don't exist. Everyone knows why there is a "foot'n" reason for a line. It's to prove who is next.
The kids are great unless you pass by a toy store and don't buy them something. Their heads immediately drop and for the next hour they don't want to talk to you. The cure is a Fanta. Fanta cures everything. These kids are so full of Fanta they are as happy as they can be. Fanta rules. Please if you want to get us a gift for the children. We need more Fanta!
Elizabeth is like a bull in a china shop. She wants to do it and then listen. And by that time something is broken or she has crashed in to something. Michael, on the other hand, is sneaky. He's already used the separation technique. This is where Mom is in one room and he asks her a question and she says no. Comes to where Dad is and says Mom said yes. Foooooot!
Last but not least, if I don't get out of here I'm going to go Ukraine on somebody.
Happy Birthday Honey!
