My Brother’s Birthday & New Planter

April 27th, 2015

Saturday we went to my parents to celebrate Brother #1’s birthday and play Cards Against Humanity. Brother #2 and his girlfriend were also there. I hadn’t seen either since Christmas. I’m really not sure what’s going on with Brother #2 because he hasn’t been keeping in touch. I’ve tried reaching out a few times only to be ignored so I’m done. He’s either angry at me over an imagined slight or he’s too caught up in his own shit. Either way I’m not going to keep trying. It’s too frustrating.

Anyway, these are the presents I gave my brother.

Brothers Presents

He likes goofy shit, I like buying presents, and it was all less than $20 so that’s a win win win.

My mom made him an orange-flavored cake which was better than it sounds. With vanilla ice cream it was like eating a dreamsicle.

We stayed until just before midnight so we didn’t get to bed until late even though we had errands I wanted to run in the morning. I finally dragged my butt out of bed around 8 am on Sunday and we ran to Walmart to get that out of the way early. I hate grocery shopping on the weekends unless we can beat the crowds.

Sunday afternoon I cleaned the rat cages and the rest of the house while Joe built a planter for our patio.

I love how it came out. It’s a Pinterest un-ironic nailed it!

Next weekend we plan to buy flowers and more soil to set it up. Plus we will be transplanting that bush to the right to a newer, nicer planter we picked up a few weeks ago. Coupled with the umbrella my mom gave us, our patio will be a tranquil place to relax once it warms up. I’m looking forward to it!
