Santa delivers... early!

My prayers were answered and this arrived from the North Pole, via an Ohio Angel today!


I shant mention the gorgeous Angel's name... heaven forbid, someone might send her some hate mail because she hasn't sent every person adopting from China, such an extravagant gift! The Angel knows who she is - and may she be blessed beyond her belief! (sorry Angel, my kids were so excited they opened it up, and were making sandwiches all the way home in the car! The gift is loved already!!)

Thank you so, so much, my Angelic Friend - your generosity has me (almost!) speechless!!! Your gift is more than cute little wooden sandwich pieces... it's thoughtfulness, kindness and generosity! I can't thank you enough!!!
Moving on from gorgeous gifts to the very important topic of...
DEODERANT!
I don't know what is going on! I've used the same deoderant for about 3 years - and loved it. It works like a charm... til the last month or so.... I smell!!!! What's with that?!!! Does anyone else out there, think that your body "gets used to" certain products? Or do you think the cosmetic companies, make their products all "super-duper" when they first release them, and slowly start making packaging smaller, and use less quality ingredients?

Oooo the "deoderant" conspiracy!!! No-one can say they don't get a "meaty" read, about the "real issues" on this blog?!!!

...And just because I can't stay mad at him for too long...



And because there's no show without Punch (or this case, Chewy!)...

That Ohio Angel is the BEST! Man, if I don't get one in the next few days I'm going to have to fire off an email to her! BWAHAHAHAHA!

Regarding the smell.....I switched to a clinical strength brand about a year ago. I just found that my other stuff seemed to stop working. It was a sad day when I realized that smell I was smelling was little ole' ME! Good luck with that. =)

Ohio Santa sure gives AWESOME gifts!! Love that!

I have been using the same deoderant since high school!! It is the ONLY one that doesn't give me a rash. Heaven forbid it stops working. What would I do?? Now I'm worried.

LOVE the pictures of the pups! That face is so sweet. Are you sure he was the culprit! ;o)

1st - Your Angel is the bomb - just love her.
2nd - the deodorant problem - not sure if you have it in Australia but we have 'Clinical Strength' deodorant available now in the stores - it is about 3X the amount of $$$ of "regular strength" deodorant, but it is OHHHH SO WORTH the extra money.
3rd - just LOVE those pups!!!!

Pug Mama said...

I just read Lisa's comment.
I swear to you - we are just alike - we even use the same deodorant!

Pug Mama said...

me again.
:o)
let me know if you have the clinical strength stuff over there.
If not, I will send you some.
least you go around smellin' funky.
I'm just sayin'.
I take care of my friends.

That Ohio angel is a sweetheart! She has such a generous soul.

PIPO said...

Everyone beat me to the 'Clinical Strength' suggestion. I hear good things. For me, I try to avoid sweating at all costs...works for me ;0)

If all else fails...have a wood sandwich. (Oh my, it just dawned on me how that could sound!)

Dayum...better get on it. Lisa lives close enough to hurt me ;0)

Luvs to ewe.

Janet said...

Hmmmm......a deo conspiracy? I'd better look into this one.....

And I LOVE the gift. VERY cool! I'm sure baby girl/boy will love it!!!!!!!!!

OziMum said...

PIPO:
I have tried the "wood" sandwich... thought I might give the one in the new "kit" ago, to try something new?!


...(yes.... I'm very ferral!)

Will look in the pharmacy for the "clinical strength"... sounds like I need it!

Fliss and Mike Adventures said...

I popped over and still nothing... though I did do a double take when I saw the words 'Prayers Answered'... I thought this was it... oh well... just will have to come back stalking tomorrow... hehe

Rachel said...

I love your short but sweet comment on RQ. LOL!

Buckeyes & Eggrolls said...

anxiously awaiting the referals this month with you and your Ohio angel. I just love the wooden food by Melissa and Doug. She got her first "wiff" of it here at Maddy's party and she was sold. It keeps Maddy entertained for hours.!

Sandra said...

Love the present. I love your angel, we are practically neighbors :-)

Love your pups, too!
