Time goes by fast this time of year. I have lots of updates for everyone though if you follow my personal Facebook and Instagram you probably know everything already!
Well for starters we've been busy getting the farm ready for the summer. You know, fixing things here and there, getting seeds planted all that good stuff.
It's all fun and games until you realize how much they cost... I think after tax it was around $30 for 2 balloons. Then they asked me if I wanted a weight for them (you mean that's not included?, ugh). Alright, cool, there's another $3 added onto these novelty balloons. So since I'm cheap I decide to only buy one weight for the two balloons.
I get home and put them down and I realize that I made the worst decision ever. I spent $35 on these dumb balloons and since I didn't want to spend another $3 so they would have individual weights, they now stick together so you cant see what numbers they are. Ugh! So I find a dog bone and tie one balloon around that. Great! Problem solved! Well yeah, great idea until one of the dogs decide to chew that bone and starts running around the house with a balloon tied to the dog bone looking at us like "what's so funny?" Well it made for a good laugh at least.
Now since I paid that much for the balloons I feel like I need to keep them and reuse them. But do you think I could get the air out of them? Nope. Can't figure it out. So I'm left with these blue foiled limp balloons hanging around on my ceiling until they deflate on their own. I've committed thus far so I refuse to just throw them away.
The other day I woke up and somehow one of the balloons traveled upstairs into the bathroom. Scared the crap out of me. Good thing I was in the bathroom... just kidding :). No but really it had made it's way up there somehow.
So anyways, I just thought I should let everyone know that if you're thinking of buying one of these balloons that nobody at your party will actually care if it's there. Instead go spend your $35 on some really good food, they'll like that more.
PS. I have to put it in separate posts since I'm too cheap to upgrade my account to 'premium' and Weebly wont let me fit my one-million words and photos into one giant post! :)
