but it wasn’t a real rock

July 19, 2007

How is it that my mom seems to have this uncanny ability to totally brighten up my day at the most perfect time? Case in point: I spent much of yesterday fretting over paying our IVF bill, which gets paid, in full, today. Wow. I spent about an hour or so on this, finally coming up with the PERFECT (really, it’s brilliant) solution to my huge bill paying problem.

I was so proud of myself, that after I called S to tell her the good news, that everything was fine, and that we wouldn’t have to be eating Ramen for the next 3 years, I called my mom.  Mostly to check in, but to also share that I’m a financial genius, a fact that she could appreciate.  WHILE I was on the phone with her, there was a knock on the door. Lookit that, there’s my UPS guy, with a package for me from “Pooltoys dot com.” 

I said to my mom “uhm…I just got a weird package from a company that makes pool toys.” She started laughing. A lot. I grew suspicious immediatly. “Did you have anything to do with this?” I asked. She said, “yep. Open it up.” And so I did. Because she saw it at a company beach party and and though I had to have one just like it.

You know I blew that thing up within seconds of hanging up the phone with her. And now, the red guy lives in the living room.

Completly random, and wonderful.


Thanks, Mom.
