I know it will shock you all that I altered something. Okay, the really shocking part is that is was an altar candle. Our local Save-A-Lot has those saint altar candles for a dollar. I took the Our Lady of Guadalupe sticker off and replaced it thusly:
I hope Our Lady of Guadalupe doesn’t get mad at me for it. I got the nightgown pattern at an estate sale for 12.5 cents. And I picked up the pom-poms at a thrift store for a dime. Woo-hoo! Totally worth getting struck by lightning for. Here it is at a different angle.
Those of you in my mother’s and grandmother’s generation will probably not find this surprising, but I just discovered her, so bear with me. Erma Bombeck is really really funny! I just finished this book (I read it in a day):
I was totally cracking up! I highly recommend it to anyone with kids especially. Here’s an excerpt:
“…I read one psychologist’s theory that said, ‘Never strike a child in anger.’ When could I strike him? When he is kissing me on my birthday? When he is recuperating from measles? Do I slap the Bible out of his hand on a Sunday?…”
I have read another of her books that was equally funny. I’ll be scouring Bookmooch, thrift stores, and garage sales for more!
