Today is always a happy day, because it is the one day of the year where I happen to know FOUR people celebrating birthdays—my mom, one of her best friends, a nephew and a brother-in-law. So already, we were spreading birthday cheer via the phone and internet.
Then, this afternoon, I got an exciting MMS message over the phone–a photo of a friend’s ultrasound!! Hello, and welcome to the world of parenting two, my friend!! While I was texting her back, hubby sent me a VM–his youngest brother just got engaged, and asked hubby to stand in as “the world’s oldest ring boy” (I think he meant bearer)! Double excitement. Then I came home and got an email–my good friend, LaCootina
, has finally been admitted to the hospital for her StemCell Transplant. Good news? Well, you don’t want anyone you know to really have to have one, but if you have to have one, you want to get it going, and she was having all sorts of starts and stops. So the fact that she is there tonight is a good thing.
So….did you get good news today???
Have you been to Sears lately??? I went yesterday for the first time in a long time, and was tickled pink to walk smack-dab in the middle of a very crisp and clean Lands End “store”. It was a catalog come to life, I tell ya. Gorgeous stuff. Of course, none of it was on sale and no coupons were applicable, so really, for me, it was just a catalog come to life.
I took the escalator upstairs to the baby section to do some returns and wow–it’s a good thing the downstairs looks so pretty. Because the upstairs? Looks like crap. They’ve crammed everything that was downstairs, upstairs. So welcome to the mens/childrens/baby/small appliance/larger women/lawn mower department. With two registers. Total.
Does your Sears have similiar issues???
Welcome if you are here due to the fabulously fun International Comment Leaving Week. I went back and read the little intro post I wrote at the end of May–on my first moments of summer vacation,and well, it is in need of some serious updating, so, if you haven’t been here before:
Mostly, I blog about the mundane (and the funny, and the bizarre) that is my life as a preschool teacher, wife, and mom to two fabulous children. I blog about the ups (and sometimes the downs) of open adoption. I blog about the challenges of a food-allergic preschooler. I do the occassional review/product plug, mostly through MomCentral, and mostly for things that I love or grow to love through a free sample or two.
So welcome, I hope you poke around a little bit–this is so not my most inspired post. Leave a comment, let me know you were here, and I promise I will return the favor at some point this week!!
