Apparently $ 10K can buy a lot of fireworks
I also warned her that some local yahoo/millionaire's brother was having a birthday, and apparently, they thought the whole neighborhood needed to know about it by purchasing $ 10,000 worth of fireworks for the celebration. So she had fair warning.
While we were watching the hometown heroes getting their behinds whooped by the national champion of their division three out of five years, the fireworks starting making their way over the treeline.
While they looked right pretty from where we were sitting, we knew that these things would be shaking the windows at the house, and more than likely keeping the kids awake. The older two I wasn't worried about at all as they have had their fair share of house shaking. It was the Monkey that I was concerned about.
So I called ... and sure enough ... the Monkey is out and awake.
On a different note, Queen and I handed out food at a local food pantry's drive in our church's parking lot this morning.
I am sure that organization could have found a good way to put that $ 10,000 to use.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
