Really sweet

When I was born, my mother already had her law firm (she even went to work on the day that I was born!) and there was a woman I called Aunt Pat who was basically my nanny. As I got older, we kinda lost touch, and she moved to Arizona. She has sent birthday cards and gifts throughout the years, and is generally one of the sweetest people ever. For my sister's wedding, she sent a really gorgeous bouquet with money throughout, from Arizona. (or did a florist in NJ make it? Never thought of the logistics on that one...haha)

I sent her a graduation announcement cause I figure she'd like to see how the baby turned out whose diaper she changed daily - and today I got a graduation gift from her, along with a big box. The big box contained pink packing peanuts - and a set of china! The card said she was 83, wasn't entertaining anymore and she figured I could use it. It's kinda sad in a way, but at the same time such a wonderfully sweet gesture. I called her immediately to say thank you and she said she's doing well in health, but she just figures at 83, there are some things that others can use more than herself. She also said my parents had given her that china years ago, which is interesting as well.

So, I have another set of china to use! It's holiday-ish and will be great for Christmas get-togethers and dinners. Very cool.

Dave sent me a text picture a little while ago of some unidentifiable body part with a gash that's bleeding. It turns out it is his wrist that he somehow cut with some fishing/boat/thingamajig. I hate when he gets hurt - he falls off his bike, cuts himself, burns himself, etc and it just makes me sad! I'm sure he'll be fine though.

I've exhausted my trading possibilities in Webkinz world today. Most of the things I got in trades were items I genuinely wanted. I was able to get a few pet specific items that I really wanted by trading various rares and exclusives. (I also meant to say - Mandi - don't put in your elephant until the 1st of the month cause he is the Pet of the Month for June! You don't want to miss out on the loot bag by 1 day!)

I worked on more graduation party invitations and thank you cards this evening. Friday nights are always so blah. I thought there was going to be more going on tonight, but I ended up staying in. Eh.


Edit: I posted this link a few weeks back and the house was at $729,900 - now it's $699,999. Ugly house on my street in LBI Anyone want to be my neighbor? 2 summers ago it was on the market for $1M. I guess they realllllly want to sell - and the market is so shitty now, I guess they just keep going down. The lot is a nice size, but the asbestos shingle outside kinda kills the entire overall look. However, it says "can accommodate 3rd floor" sine many people buy and then add on and update. Kinda sad about the price drop, cause the land location value is probably closer to $1M...

That's not a bad looking house there. Just change the color to a lighter blue or a different color, change a few things on it and wella.....you got good looking house. oh yea add lots of grass too, no dirt.

just curious, when you trade stuff on webkinz, is it actually stuff or stuff for your games online?

Online furniture and objects.There's a place in webkinz world where you trade items from your webkinz house with items that I have in my webkinz house...does that make sense?
