We had a visit from "the boyfriend" on Friday. He is Squirrel's friend that she met while interning last summer. They have been dating for five months and he roadtripped to visit her for Christmas yesterday. [They attend different colleges - in different states.]
He is such a nice, polite and kind young man. He's a cutie too. :) We really are happy for Squirrel because they just seem like such a great couple.
Since I had been upright most of the morning I ended up in bed [flat] for the rest of the day - hence why Dad made dinner. :D
I had split pea soup on the menu, but it is not something Pooldad had ever made before. It isn't the hardest dish, it just has a lot of steps to it. Also, split pea soup is either something you like or you don't - there is really no in between, so I was taking two chances with it: feeding it to a guest and not making it myself.
Why do I even worry? Psssh.
1.739 hand written directions [from bed] later - Pooldad served up the perfect bowl of soup, with a salad and fresh bread. And we don't think the boyfriend was merely being polite by having 2 1/2 bowls. :D He really seemed to enjoy it. Yippeee!
It is 4:40 am here and I have a few hours in which to entertain myself while I wait for our day to get started. We are taking Wallene to the mall today for new clothes. She has grown quite a bit since the beginning of school and has outgrown almost all of her pants.* The sales look to be great, so I am glad we waited until after Christmas. I am actually kind of excited to see how many deals we can find. [I can't believe I just said that either. I think I need a little bit more sleep. heehee]
Hope y'all are enjoying your weekend and have a safe and happy New Years.
*Yes, I am destined to be the shortest in my family. sigh. Not fair, considering I am 5'8. Darn kids.
