Indulgence

I have big plans to do nothing but girlfriend stuff this Labor Day. Old Sarge is going to be putting a roof on his parents’ house, so I get free reign of my time. My sister has also put me in charge of the birthday present for a friend of hers- it’s a girls only party Saturday night.
I have met Lisa a few times, and decided she needs a “me me me” basket. This will be her 30th birthday. She’s a stunningly beautiful girl who is also about 100 lbs. overweight, raising two 9-11 yr. old boys alone. When my sister asked for a list of who to invite, there was almost no one on it except our family and her dad. How sad is that?
I feel very bad for her. The whole single mother thing at such a young age. Her youngest boy had my hand itching for a little attitude adjustment, thankfully my spanking days are long over.
So…what to put in there that just screams “for just a little bit, I am not a mom or an ex-wife or a daughter, I am just me”? I have some things from Bath & Body, and I’m thinking candles, wine glasses and a nice bottle or two, gourmet coffee, bath salts, manicure items, chocolates, maybe a couple of bodice-ripper paperbacks. Of course, no basket of mine is ever complete without a bottle of Mr. Bubble Pool Party.

Any other suggestions??

Great start on that list......hmmmm I'm thinkin' maybe a "coupon" for babysitting - just so she can step away.

Other than that, you've got everything that came to mind....

Oh no, there will be no babysitting. ;) Maybe some St. Joseph's Baby Downers.

Single mom... girls only... I'm thinking some sort of fuckerware party (you know, inappropriate toys, etc..) if they do that sort of thing in rural IL :)

I had one in Flagstaff, it was a riot!
