- I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?

National Bubble Wrap Day
The main reason I was going to IKEA was to buy a LACK Table so I could make B a LEGO table. I found a tutorial online and the person used the IKEA LACK Table with LEGO plates. "Why spend $70 - $200 on a LEGO table from a store when I could make my own with a $7.99 LACK Table?" I asked. "Because you'll spend at least $70 in gas to get to and from the closest IKEA," replied the hubs. Welllllll...it was too late, b/c I had already ordered used LEGO plates online and they arrived the end of November. Unfortunately, I went back to work full-time then, and was unable to get to IKEA for the LACK Table in order to make and give B the LEGO table for Christmas.
On the way home from our double date at The Wolfe Tone's Pub at Blackthorne Inn, I realized that I'd never opened the package of LEGO plates when they arrived. I had no idea what condition they were in, or even if they were in there at all! Ooops. I had a lot on my mind; transition from SAHM to full-time WOHM during the holiday season kept me a little distracted. So Monday morning, I opened the box of plates while holding my breath. They were dirty and had some kind of non-human hair on them, but they were all there, the correct size and color and none were broken. Yeah! (Phew!)
More importantly, they were wrapped in bubble wrap, and the festivities began! B, as you can see from the 2 pictures, got creative with his popping - Riverdancing in the 1st pic and landing from a doorway position in the 2nd one. He said he wished he had a really fast arm like Eve in Wall-E to pop them, but I reminded him the fun would be over much too quickly. Ahhh, the simple things in life - celebrating National Bubble Wrap Day with the ones you love. And not inviting Eve.
