The party part of the evening is over. The girls are in the other room sorta playing quietly but not really, lol. They had a really good time and the child seemed to be happy with her loot. She got stuff from us, her sister, her friends, teachers at school, Jennifer S., and 2 out of 4 of her grandparents which is better than most years as far as the her family is concerned. The Mister and I got her an iPod shuffle for her big gift. We found it really odd that she never asked for an iPod nano or a full sized iPod. She likes how the shuffle is small and cute, lol.
Now, I have to tell you about our Dominos experience. I know!! But I swear I'm not making this stuff up. I ordered three pizzas at 6:20 pm via the Internet. We usually get very excellent service from there and I figured that'd give us plenty of time to eat, then presents, then cake. Well, 7:20 rolls around and I have a houseful of complaining, hungry kids on my hands now so I call to see where our pizzas are at. The girl tells me that they're shorthanded and ours will be the next delivery. 30 minutes later, our food finally arrives. It's not a delivery person that I recognize but he immediately apologizes for our wait. He goes on to explain that he's the district manager, most of his crew is out with the flu, and he's going to put us in for another order of what we got tonight for free the next time we call. How's that for good service??? Yes, the pizza was late but you can't predict the flu and they owned up to the less than stellar delivery time. We're going to have to wait to take him up on the free pizza cuz that's way more than the four of us can eat but it's $43 worth of free pizza. I'm stoked.
I wish you all could hear what I'm hearing, lmao. I just heard the longest, most drawn out screech that I've ever heard. Kids are so funny.
