Day 9 – Feb.14th, 2012
Another late night! Last night I was up late doing my own taxes on TaxACT.com which was fairly simple so I should be receiving my refund within 1-2 weeks. Today was quite busy as well. I shopped for more presents for Carl for V&B Day. I went to many a Walgreens to find a working Reese’s Lion which is cute because Carl is a Lion and likes Reese’s cups. I also got a family sized bag of the candy for him, Lover’s dice, sweethearts and Star Wars Actions figures from the Cantina Showdown in Star Wars Episode 6: A New Hope. It’s the scene where Obi-Wan cuts off that guys arm. Carl got a kick out of it because he likes going around saying “He doesn’t like you… I DON’T like you!” :-P He made me a gorgeous Alice-type necklace, got me chocolate, a Moo-ing cow marker, a cow booze jug, and a witches warts jar. He also got me a purple tee-shirt that shows a melted yellow Popsicle and a melting green Popsicle and the sun; the green pop is saying “You monster!” lol! We went out to dinner with his dad Carl Sr. and his lady friend Charlene to the restaurant out at Fort McDowell where Jeana works and who paid for the event. It was a very high-class restaurant and the food was delicious and served in tiny portions. I feel the best part was the desserts which were bread pudding, lava cake with powdered sugar, strawberries/ blueberries/ raspberries and whipped cream, and cream brulee. Then we ventured into the casino for a bit and played around in there. They had an Alice in Wonderland machine which was pretty and a very cool Batman Dark Knight one as well. A very good time was had by all. Today was also Arizona’s 100th Birthday! Adios, amigos!
