I'm sure I will go down in the family annuals as Sparkle Plenty's mom. Marymine has always, always been the glitter queen. She can burn thru a couple hundred jars of that Martha's glitter like nobodies business.
So, it's that time of year....Homecoming. Marymine, has two in high school, so it's a pretty big deal around here. Yesterday I pruned (hacked) down the shrubs (jungle) around her house...so you could see all the tactfully gaudy decorations she has put up. As I was hacking...err...pruning my way across the wilderness...a glimmer came over me. I thought this might be due to my extreme bravery in even attempting to make the decorations visible from the freeway a mile away... Nope, it was Sparkle Plenty at work...dusting the shrubs (and me) with glitter... See, she is set on winning the best decorated homecoming home contest. There will be a perpetual trophy!
