And I Normally Don't Like You, Monday
Even though everyday seems like a Friday to me anyways, I still don't like Monday's. I blame it mainly on Professors who thought they were giving us all a break making our papers/exams/projects due on Monday instead of ANY other day. No one wants to waste a good weekend of college parties studying. So yesterday (Monday), was brother Donnie's 28th Bday, old man! Mario had the day off, so we decided to take Donnie balloons to work to cheer him up since he had to work. That's him hiding behind his awesome Star Wars Darth Vader balloon. After we dropped off the balloons, we had lunch at Costco (great when you're on a budget), and then to McDonalds to get an ice cream cone. While waiting in the drive-thru, I was looking at this pic I have from a few years ago of Me & Mar that has been in my wallet (under one of the pic proctector sleeve things) since about the time it was taken. I decided to pull it out to look at it closely, since I was amazed at how much fatter we have gotten since (as I'm waiting for my ice cream, mind you). After I pulled it out I noticed there was something green behind it. I pulled it out, unfolded it, and had to pick my mouth up from my lap when it was 2, $100 bills. Seriously, how awesome is that? I can not for the life of me remember when or why they would have been there, but talk about a blessing. Just in time for Christmas, when I'm still collecting disability, which isn't a whole lot, but I'm greatful it's better than nothing. At this point I'm totally stoked. So later that night, we went next door to Donnie's for some cake & ice cream & Addy was so cute. This is her playing peek-a-boo with her Uncle Mar. She would put her head down on the couch & she would come up for him to tell her "peek-a-boo", look at me, wait for the flash of the camera, and do it all over again. She's such a doll, and a little ham. All in all, what a great way to spend a day. So Monday, you haven't made the top of my list, but you're no longer my least favorite.
