Double Down.

If you haven’t heard already, it’s National Doughnut Day.  Which coincided with the arrival of Tropical Storm Andrea and hours and hours of hard rain.  Also simultaneous with the last day of school.  The perfect storm.

So what’s a mom to do when it’s pouring rain, the kids are out of school, and it’s National Doughnut Day?

Don’t even think about it, Cat.  I just picked this place up.  And it’s probably the last time the house will be clean for the next 3 months.

Of course, we headed to the local doughnut shops for free doughnuts.  Dunkin’ Donuts did require a drink purchase in order to get a free doughnut.   Good thing I’ve got a coupon for that .  🙂

But Krispy Kreme handed out a free doughnut, no purchase required, no questions asked.   God bless America.

That’s right—-we doubled down on the free doughnuts.

After all, we were celebrating the last day of the school,  the fact that all 4 kids made straight A’s,….

….and the fact that The Other Half had to attend 2 school awards ceremonies and I only had to attend 1.  Boo yah.

I have a good feeling about this summer break.  ‘Cause we ‘re off to a sweet start!

    And I missed Doughnut Day! I thought it was the day before Lent starts – like Mardi Gras with donuts instead of New Orleans etc.
    Hope to see some of your A students this summer.
