Yesterday was my 45th birthday. So many options of things to do and you know what I did? Cleaned off my desk and sat on the computer for 3 hours. I was in my own little world and it was nice. Gosh, I've gotten boring. Anyhow, I discovered unused gift cards hidden in the mess. I researched the amount left on each one, put a sticky note on the back and then put them into these card pages. Into a binder, into the truck and I'm good to go. Would you believe there was $14.28 to Cold Stone Creamery, $25 to go to the movies and 1100 minutes of long distance calling among other things. Woohoo!!
At 1:00 pm we took Elijah to the doctor. He's having trouble swallowing and having chest pains. X-rays showed nothing. He can't take anything for the sinuses because of his skin medication. I wish he felt good. It doesn't slow him down... he trudges along feeling icky.
After the doctor's the boys went to lunch with me at a Mexican restaurant. It was really nice to have their company. Can't remember the last time I had the two of them cornered together.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing. Dishes, floors, everything went untouched. I sat and relaxed...well, except for about an hour when I cleaned one of the spaces upstairs. That made me feel better. One step closer to building my craft room walls.
While I was upstairs Homer baked with the kids. It was sweet having them sing to me.
Here I am. Another year old with more wrinkles and gray hair. Funny... the person looking out is much younger, but when I look back I don't see who I "think" I am.
This morning I'm hitting the ground running. Kind of. These two thought the bacon I was cooking should be for them.
