It's that time of the
year for our annual Christmas party. Contact Merrilee and let
her know what you plan to bring for our dinner. Also bring a wrapped
$20 "personal" item for our "Exchange Game".
We decided at the November meeting to give $100 to CASA (Ruth's contact) and for us to bring to the December meeting items for that Haiti orphanage that I e-mailed people about.
Here is a list:
Formula, baby bottles, nipples, bottle brushes, cloth diapers in good repair, plastic baby/toddler spoons, plastics cups, sippy cups, plastic plates, wooden spoons, large lighter weight pots (shipping is expensive), small toys, school items for ages four to fifteen (our teacher speaks English), pencils, pens, crayons, educational coloring books, and things of the like. We have many clothes already for this shipment, but will be shipping again in January and April.
Try to bring what you
can and I will get it to the lady who does that charitable work.
Thank You! Randi :-)
Saturday Coffee Clatches
Meet your Las Madres friends for some coffee and conversation at the Starbuck's at White and Aborn on Saturday mornings at 9am. Every third Saturday is a field trip. We'll decide at the Christmas Party whether to have a field trip or not this month.
WORDS WOMEN USE
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour.Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
This is the calm before the storm. This means "something" and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with "Nothing" usually end in "Fine".
This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it.
This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
A woman is thanking you. Do not question it or faint. Just say you're welcome.
Send this to the men you know to warn them about future arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology!
