I took the day off from work and I only sent two emails and made one phone call. Not bad. Still some room for improvement, but not bad. My husband gave me a beautiful new handbag. Sophie gave me a lovely handmade card and a huge hug and kiss. Chloe also gave me a handmade card that said, “I love you SOOOOOOO much!” She also gave me a box of 1970s nostalgic candy. While the latter is really fun, I have to admit that I love the card even more. Because I’m going to keep it. And shove it in her face in a couple of years, when Chloe is a teenager and tells me she hates me.
I spent the day at the mall, shopping for the holidays and everyone else but me. OK – that’s not entirely true. My mom gave me a gift certificate that I used to buy a blouse, bowls and a candle. I also bought some face creme and soap. I had a lot of bags at the end of the day. Containing a lot of presents for the girls. I think I am done holiday shopping. Hallelujah.
It feels like a Friday. Sadly, it isn’t. Which means back to work tomorrow. Birthdays should really last more than one day.
