Tupperware Party!

Yes, I had one. Yes, I'm partially insane. But hey - if it's free, its for me and having these parties gets you a whole bunch of free stuff, so I do it every now and then.

OK, it's been like 5 years since I've had any kind of invite-your-friends-to-spend-money parties.

We had a good time, really. Honestly, I have never been to a Tupperware party before so it was pretty interesting for me. I was the only one there who had never been to one. Figures. But I won't bore you with the details, except for this one;

I have a friend who lives 3 hours away from me. As a joke I sent her an invitation. Not that I didn't want her to come, I would have loved for her to come, but who is going to drive 3 hours to attend a Tupperware party, right? I was pleasantly surprised to find out she was actually going to order, though! I never expected that at all. I just wanted to send her an invitation just to be a dork.

Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day - well the morning anyway. At church the kids put on a "King of the Jungle" program at the 10:30 service. I have never seen a group of kids so enthusiastic about church... it's amazing. I'm so happy we found this church.. My kids love going to church, bible school and these programs. Demon #2 was the "King" in the program and sang a short solo. She has a great voice!

So after church we ran over to the grocery store to pick up milk. We go through more milk, it's crazy. At almost $4 a gallon you would think I'd start rationing our milk supply, but I just can't. My demons will grab a glass of milk over juice or pop any day!

Ran into a friend of ours, a guy I used to work with. I really miss him. I took over his shift at the hotel every morning and we had our morning cigarette ritual to signify the passing of the torch into the next shift. Many many debates were done on the front porch of the hotel! ;-)

Seeing him made us shorten the time I had between church & the party to actually get ready for the party so we cut the visit short and raced home. Started picking up the last minute dirty socks, hairballs and other such ugly things when someone knocks on my door.... it's my friend from 3 hours away! The turd didn't tell me she was coming! LOL I was in shock - so much so I didn't even sound excited, but I was. It was so much of a shock that I just ... didn't really do anything!

Now we know who will drive 3 hours for a Tupperware party!

Your friends are better than me! Receiving an invitation to a Tupperware party is like receiving a free demo from Kirby!
I curse them!
