gentle reader, this past week absolutely flew by!
i have no idea where the time went and what happened but before i knew it, it was monday morning already.
so i'm re-visiting last week.
we celebrated a very special birthday last week.
muscle barbie had a birthday!!!
and we celebrated at our most favorite restaurant in the city.
with very special people.
muscle barbie decided she wanted to be all fancy and wore this fabulous outfit even though it was brrrr cold outside!
her birthday was a bit discombobulated...
she works an interesting split shift. she is up early early early, works her booty off, works her clients' booties off, goes home for a few hours and then is back at it in the afternoon.
so on this day, she went home for her break and was going to get all ready for dinner out and would only have to change her clothes after work.
while getting ready, her power went out.
every girl's nightmare.
she texted me but then it came right back on.
no worries! continue getting ready.
power goes out again!
holy shit! now what?
what you don't know, gentle reader, is that at her apartment building, the garage is on the first floor. when the power goes out, there is no way to get your vehicle out.
none. zip. nada.
it's happened once before. kiroman and i went and picked up her and her guinea pig and brought them to our house. because she could not get out.
when we arrived, the maintenance guy was there and told us there was no way to open the garage door without electricity.
i call bullshit on that one and really have to wonder how this past occupancy, but whatever.
sooooo...when muscle barbie told me that the power was out and not coming back on, i told her i was on my way...thank goodness i was already at kiroworld and only 15 minutes away.
so i stopped what i was doing, picked her up and drove her to work...which meant that i then had to pick her up when she done working.
not complaining...stating facts.
i love this girl and will do whatever i can to help her out!
so when kiroman finished for the day, muscle barbie's friend, kd, met us at the office and we all rode down to our favorite celebration joint to meet grandma and grandpa.
it was a smaller group than last year but we still had a great time!
in usual fashion, i had balloons for her...i think this tradition started around 3rd grade...we sent a balloon bouquet to her at school every year. i did that every single year through school and then once she was in college, i delivered the balloons myself.
i wish i had taken more photos of the evening.
the flowers, the balloons, the gifts, the food, the people...it was all fabulous!
and the power was on by the time we dropped her off.
and if you were wondering about priscilla, the guinea pig, gentle reader...she is enjoying a vacation at my house.
one of these days, muscle barbie will want her back!
- for every single day with muscle barbie
- for every single day with kiroman
- for every single day with my mom
- for every single day with my friends
- for every single day
just breathing isn't living!
