Anywhoooo......we had a great time. We went directly to a kitchen store and bought one of these:
I have been wanting one for a long time and now I have one!!!! I never knew a mixer would make me so happy. Even my kids were excited to see it! It's going to make cooking and baking in Mozambique SO much easier. I bought one that has been refurbished so it was almost 1/2 of what a brand new one costs. Plus, we bought a floor model (it was the only white one they had and I wanted white) and got an additional 10% off!
While we were in the store shopping, another shopper stuck her head in the door to alert the store management that there was a large snake outside and maybe someone needed to call security. As it turned out the store employee and CHARLIE rounded up the long, ugly thing and killed it! Charlie bashed it with a broom then stepped on it's head with his heel!!!! (Remember Genesis 3:15?) Then he PICKED IT UP and put it in a garbage bag and the store employee threw it away. Ewwww. I did not watch but stayed safely in the store.
