Big Win At Bunko

2010-06-16 22.22.52

Yes, I’m a suburban housewife and I am a member of a Bunko group. I’ve been playing for about 3 years and last night was the first time I actually walked away with real money. $80! For like a half a second it was $120, but then a tallying score was caught… I’ll take it either way.

Usually I have all types of drawings around my score card. Last night was quite tame. When I was in grammar school, my teachers used to tape up my desk with brown grocery bags so I could doodle. I don’t know what it is – but I am OBSESSED with making patterns, shapes, boxing and bordering things, etc. The teachers figured it would be easier than making me clean the desk each day. I would change it out once every few weeks and everyone was happy. FOR YEARS.

Some things never change. LOL!


Today is my little girl’s birthday! We have a really fun day planned for her. I’ll take lots of pics and post tomorrow.

  1. So funny you mention the brown paper… my mother did that to my desk at home.. unfortunately, i still wrote on everything else too; walls, closet doors (that one I wrote on with permanent marker… oops!) jeans, shoes, , furniture, counters, placemats, backpacks, etc etc. Doodles everywhere on everything… I was out of control!

  2. Happy Birthday Natalie! 5 years old? She has changed over the years BIG TIME! For a sec, I didn’t know who the baby was, lol. Very cute outfit on her. Have a fun day guys 🙂
