Last night Max was working on making cupcakes in the kitchen with a friend and apparently he knocked the blender’s plastic container (name for this?) onto the floor. Julie thought it might be OK, but after trying to wash it, she realized it would not work. Today we went out to Target and she bought a new one for $30. That’s exactly the value of two gift cards I had in my wallet. We really can’t afford to be replacing things we already own at the moment. And to think that blender only cost her $5 at a garage sale. It was a good one and will be missed.
