Change



YES! Kurt was already asleep when I got home tonight, and all I could think was THE COMPUTER IS MINE. And oh yeah, too bad Kurt isn't up... BUT ITS WORTH IT IF I CAN USE THE INTERNET.

My Dad sent me a Thanksgiving package today! I was so happy- its been really hard to find anything to decorate with. Looking around at the stores, you'd think Thanksgiving didn't even exist! Its like the forgotten holiday. I guess the stores have all decided that the only important thing about Thanksgiving is the shopping that takes place the morning after.

But back to the package. It was heavy. I read the label- the thing weighed 19lbs! I was all "Did he send me a Turkey...?" But when I got to the bottom of the box I found this.



So growing up my Dad always had a jar full of change. Whenever we wanted some money, he's have us reach in and grab a handful. The last time I did that was, oh, maybe 4 months ago? Knowing how much I've been missing home, my Dad decided to send me ALL OF HIS CHANGE. This way, I can reach in whenever I need a little spending money.

I love my Dad :)

I saw that his change jar was empty the other day and now I understand why! I think it is funny that the first thing you thought of when you got home was that you got the computer! You need a laptop or something :)

Awe! Dad is so cute! I want him to send me a Thanksgiving package. I'm still waiting for my Halloween one... j/k. I agree with Amber, you need a laptop woman!

Ahhhh - what a sweet dad. I've never lived out of state from my dad but I like to think he would do something like that! ;)

It's been a slow day at work so I've been reading your blog. I love the character flaw posts. They make me laugh. Thanks for keeping me entertained today! LOL.
