Okay, I need some help everyone. I need a good dessert to take to our friends house next this coming weekend. We haven't seen our friends in almost 2 years. It sounds terrible, but as you may have read in my early posts, the hubby and I have had a VERY crappy two years. Both of us lost our jobs, have had a couple deaths in the family, had several members develop cancer and almost lost a nephew in an accident. Sooooo, some things got put on the back burner like our friends Dave and Roxanne. We recently talked and I found out that they are both losing their jobs. Roxanne and my hubby met at Northwest Airlines about 15 years ago when the Dude moved to a new department. Dude lost his job in 2005 when the mechanics went on strike. Roxanne is losing her job because Delta (who bought out North-worst) is moving her job to Atlanta. Her husband is losing his job as it is moving to CHINA. They just turned 50 and have had their jobs for 30 years. Where are they going to find jobs making what they have been making, and having about 8 weeks of vacation and competing with 25 year olds who will come in cheaper. It just sickens me.
But out of doom and gloom. We are going to their new house (bought in the summer before knowing either of them were losing their jobs) this coming weekend and I said I would bring dessert. I normally do when we get together as Rox doesn't really bake since it is only the two of them and always look forward to when I bring treats. I want to bring something special since we haven't seen them in so long. Not to go "woo hoo, look what I brought" but more "I'm so glad to see you-let's indulge in this yumminess".
Who has some ideas for me? Anyone, anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
Thank you in advance- I'm off to bed now, one more night. It has to better than last night. Machines broken, hand packing totes of cereal and crabby arss dayshift people who are lazy and left all their messes behind for us to pick up. Big sigh. Tonight will HAVE to better. I should put wine in the fridge now so in case I need some tomorrow morning at 7!
