I am going to give you two updates on my coworkers and friends. I think
you may recall the filipino baby shower that was lovely and the best ever
fun time at a baby shower. Also, you may recall my friend, Anna, who was
trying to keep the three men named Ron alive and kicking in her dating
scenery! Here are their stories!
My coworker and friend from the Phillipines had her son over the Fourth
of July! I was so excited and told her about George M. Cohen, and his own
birthday song, “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy!” Her daughter, Kridia, is a
great first grader and has taken very well to the new addition to their family.
Felda says she is exhausted! Her baby son is up all night, sleeping during the
day. I told her my big piece of baby advice that most people think I am crazy
to volunteer. Wake the Baby UP! Yes, let baby be crabby during the day, while
you have those few ounces of energy and strength.
I would give my babies a wet, cool washcloth bath and change their diapers.
After only one hour of naptime, they would be awake and NO putting them in
that swing until you are utterly worn out and try to wait until bedtime, too.
Keeping babies on your time clock is not so hard. I did nurse my babies a lot, but
then would tickle their toes if falling asleep!
My friend Anna has a very exciting palatte of men right now! She has dropped two
of her three Ron’s. Her only Ron left lives up in the Cleveland area, (Medina, Ohio)
and he is willing to drive down on a Thursday evening. He took her to the Funny
Bone at Easton where they ate and laughted a lot! They he turned around and drove
on back home and was able to make it to his work on Friday!
Anna is also dating a chef who took her to several impressively expensive and
delicious meals. She was very pleased with his choices, some that she would never have
known existed in the central Ohio area. This man is named Frederick and she is not
nicknaming him Fred or Erick or Rick. I somehow would probably find a way to change
that but maybe I would find he would not be asking ME to another date due to playing
around with his name!
Lastly, not in the introductory funnel paragraph nor in my little tags. My personal news
is, my oldest daughter found a man for me! We have had only one date, I followed all
the rules my brothers taught me, too. (Did you notice that Anna’s brothers didn’t tell
her the one about not going to expensive places nor did they tell her to bring cash to
offer to pay? Hmmmm…. !) Anyway, we have a second date planned to go to the
movies. This will probably break the brother rules laid out in my last post… But it is
such a bargain! At our local Strand Theatre in Delaware, Ohio there is an over 55
discount card! You get a movie ticket, first run movies, any time any seating, with
a medium drink and a medium popcorn: all for the grand total of $7.00!!
So, again, cross your fingers, hope that I can be a “good” date and make it to a third
date with Len or Lenny. Yes, if you are reading this blog, I used your real first name!
