Curly needed a birthday gift. Can I tell you how tired I am of birthday gift buying? Lad is almost 21. You do the math. I'm too tired. My gift-buying instructions were: cats and art projects. Yikes. I searched on my phone for a Michael's. Not close enough. I decided to go to Hobby Lobby.
Mini texted. Her badminton 'big sisters' needed a gift by the next day. She hoped I could buy some candy for them. After having 3 boys play high school sports first, I cannot adjust to the team building mentality of high school girls' sports teams. Call each other big or 'lil sis and then deliver a bunch of candy about 4 or 5 times a season. These candy drops are always scheduled at the last minute, which does not align with someone who doesn't go to the store that often (anymore).

could convey my
inner frustrations that
they were closed.
|Gift that Mini made for Lad since he goes|
to college in New York. She used photos
from images printed off the internet to spell
out Chicago (captain obvious? not
sure you could tell in this picture).
Mini made a gift for Lad at Christmas and I suggested that she do some personal graduation themed boards in a similar fashion. Maybe someone would buy them as gifts if I posted examples on Nextdoor.
I admit that I was feeling great. Three birds with one stone. What could go wrong?
