No, I'm not talking about our baby, because she's not here yet. I'm sure she also will have been worth the wait whenever she does arrive. What I'm talking about is my birthday present! Okay, I only waited one extra day, but it would have been worth it to wait a whole lot longer than that! Last night as I was doing something (worthwhile and productive, no doubt) on the computer, Troy was messing around in the kitchen. I stood up, turned around, and this is what I saw on the kitchen table:
Do you hear the angels and the harps? The choirs singing its praises? I sure did! A Viking Stand Mixer. I thought I was going to have to wait many years before one of these graced my kitchen counter. And by "grace" I actually mean "dominate." Move over bacon, here comes something really big. The kitchen now needs some serious rearranging, which I will enjoy doing while I'm waiting and waiting for a contraction to show up.
Thank you, sweet husband, for fulfilling my dreams of mixing joy. I can't decide what to start with. I really have no need for whipped cream at the moment, but the sight of the giant balloon whisk attachment is pretty tempting. And come on, how often have you been unable to find a use for a quart of whipped cream?
