My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Oh yeah...

...this one is appropriate. Ready for the Brain Bender*??


Richmond went shopping for her eldest daughter K's birthday party. She spent half of the original amount plus $10 on paper plates, cups, napkins, and party games and favors. At the second store, she spent half the money left plus $5 on treats and birthday cake then half of what was left, plus $5 on balloons and decorations, leaving only $5 for candles.

How much money did Richmond start with??


And yes, it is K's birthday today. Her party will be Saturday and I have lots of fun stuff planned. Heh. Though I must remember to buy gummy worms yet...

Anyway, like always the answer will be found in the comments later.

*names changed, obviously...
