Wow tenth day, how exciting.. We are now in the double digits and moving along greatly. I am still wearing my cool PJ’s that my mom hates. It says on it “Little Miss Chatterbox.” It’s pink, has a weird cartoon character and it is just funny! What’s wrong with it? Anyways, I didn’t leave the house today, I swore I will not spend a penny from now till the end of the month. I am tired of spending. I swear sometimes I want to rip my debit card in half! It’s so absurd this month. However, from now till the end of the year I want to regain all the money I over spent the past 3 or 4 months and look back on the year as a year where I have managed to save some money.
I just finished eating, and mom made lovely food as usual. Love my mom for her cooking! Hehe. Anyways, my dad bought a Black Forest cake. My sister impatiently gobbled it down because there are two things in life she loves. Mashed Potatoes and CAKE. I sat there eating it slowly, and I was like blah.. this is dry. I want something nice and warm to get along with it. So I boiled some water and went to look for a mini tea pot or anything in the dining room cabinet.
I couldn’t find a small metal one. I thought my brother got some from Turkey a few years ago. I then found mom and asked her. She said, “in there, bottom cabinet.” I then opened it and said, “no this is too big. I want tiny.” She said, “I don’t know, keep looking.” So I looked around and saw a porcelain tea pot set. I thought fine, I will use it. Although I saw it the first time but didn’t want it. So I took it to the kitchen to wash it first. My dad was standing in the kitchen making Turkish coffee. I opened it and saw dollar bills.
I said to my dad, “what is this?” I took it out and it was 100 dollar bills, but it wasn’t Canadian, it was American. My dad held it and said, “yes this is American 100 dollar bills.” He called my mom and told her. My mom took the money and said, “oh my GOD! Where did you find it? I think I put it in there years ago. How much is it worth now.” My dad disappointendly said, “same! Dollar Canadian is equal to American now!” Mom said, “thank you Mona so much, what should we do! This is 500 dollars. Let’s keep it till the Canadian Dollar goes down again.” I laughed and said, “you want me to look in any more pots or anywhere else in the house. You seem to have a habit of hiding money EVERYWHERE and ANYWHERE that seems to have a top to it!” She was just so happy and speechless. My dad then said, “since you are always lucky and God loves you, you want to go check my lottery ticket!” I said, “no, I am afraid if we win, one of us will have a heart attack.” He said, “that is my biggest fear in life, to win the lotto!” I laughed and said, “maybe you should stop buying them!”
