Letting the “Kat” out of the Bag
As a norm, we wipe the house clean on Thursday evening in anticipation of the weekend. Any leftover laundry gets folded, all of the toys make it to their “normal” hiding place and we do our best to declutter the kitchen. Some Thursdays are better than others, and it usually depends on our Thursday night schedule.
Kat doesn’t know it yet, but her friends are taking her out Thursday night. Some of them haven’t seen her since her mom passed, and want to get together with her as a group to spend some time with her.
I’m in a lose-lose situation here! When do I tell her? If I tell her Wednesday, then I ruin the surprise. And let me tell you – this girl LOVES surprises. If I tell her when I get home from work on Thursday, she’ll only have a few minutes to get ready. Good for no one.
So I decided to tell her this way, via the blog, the morning of the surprise. And why did I mention the “Thursday Clean” earlier in this post? I tried to subtly say last night “hey, let’s try to do some cleaning tonight (Wednesday) so it won’t be too bad tomorrow (Thursday).” That went over like a poop sandwich.
Have fun tonight babe! Leave the house to me – I’ll take care of it tonight while you’re out boozing chilling with your friends.
