Merry Christmas to me from Santa Dad!

November 6, 2013


At lunchtime my director came in and said a package had arrived for me. I had no idea what it could be – junk mail? Not the star I ordered for the float, because that had already arrived. (Update coming soon.) I opened the large box and it was…..a jigsaw!

A nice jigsaw! Nothing like the weeny $20 model I bought at Walmart years and years ago – this thing is the real deal! And who sent me this package of awesomeness? My Dad. 🙂

I am so happy! The big kids and I are cutting the roof panels for the stable tomorrow, so I’ll let you know how it works.

By the way, when I told the kids about it at lunch, one of the boys asked, “Do you live with your Mom and Dad?”

“No,” I answered. “They live far away and I live in my own house.”

He looked very troubled. “…. Why don’t you want to live with your parents?”

I shared the story with his Mom. She laughed and said that he’s told her he’s going to live with her forever.

    Cool! It’s great to work with nice power tools. I remember when I first used a nice drill for the first time. Awesome present, Lauren’s dad!

    Awesome! I’ll share a secret: if I could still live with my mom and dad, I would. Or maybe I should say, if I could have them live with me, I would. Either way…

    Kudos to Santa Dad! And enjoy your new toy super cool tool!

    Power tools scare me. Non-power tools scare me. The only thing I accomplish with such things is hurting myself. The kind of hurt that is usually accompanied by a bad word.
