So I got Christian back out of the car, and we marched back into Walmart. The grouchy lady saw me coming and actually ignored me as long as she could. When I handed her another bag of balloons she just stared at me. I told her what happened, and laughed it off. She didn't laugh... She took the bag and said, "All TWENTY of them?" I just smiled and said, "Yep!" Hey, at least she didn't have to blow them up with her mouth! :) I really was enjoying myself. But we didn't find any more pretty polka-dots so we had to settle for pastels. I really doubt Andy will mind. Needless to say, I bought a weight this time, and double tied those silly balloons to it! It was a fun trip home in the car with 16 balloons flying around in the car.....yes, that lady popped four of them! The A/C went out in the car last week, so I had to have the windows cracked a bit. Oh, it was exciting! The kids were squealing in delight the entire 15 min trip home from town! Audra normally falls asleep; NOT TODAY! Well, we made it home, the kids are in bed and I'm sitting her resting my aching back and legs for a few minutes before getting up to clean the house and start decorating for tomorrow. I can't wait to see my husband again and be a real family again! This single mom business is ridiculous!
