-That while in New York, I did not get scammed once this time. It all happened by accident actually. I cant believe I didn't think of it before. A man was trying to scam me into something. I just looked at him and didn't answer. He assumed I didn't speak English. He said "Parlez Vous Francais?", to which I did not answer either. I smiled and walked away.Maybe the beret I was wearing made him think I was French. From there on out, I just pretended I didn't understand what they were saying when I didn't want to communicate with someone. Genius idea. Too bad I couldn't use that ploy in my every day life.
-That while in New York I found the perfect heavy green sweater. It was my favorite color green. It was just my style. I was having one of the worst hot flashes while walking to the register with the green sweater that I was excited to buy. All I could think about is what I would feel like in that sweater during a hot flash. Needless to say, the sweater did not make the trip home with me. I wound up buying a light weight sweater with holes. My husband felt bad when I relayed the story and told me that he would buy me as many green sweaters as I want when all of this passes. He did think the story was funny however. Me, not so much.
-That when my favorite baby hears my voice lately and sees me on face time, she squeals with delight. I love it. Maybe she is just trying to work me for extra Christmas presents?
-That my daughter was so stressed out that she had to make a big purchase. She needed brake pads. She asked us to get them for her for Christmas. I said no. After the purchase, she said she needed to do a shot and what should she do the shot to? I told her to do a shot to being an adult. She didn't like it much but she will survive. It is hard being tough on your kids.
-That while trying to call my son and get an answer from him, I finally sent him a text. This was his response. If you see a news story about someone snapping....its probably me.
-That I started a tradition with my favorite baby. I buy her an ornament for Christmas. This is her ornament this year. She should have a whole tree full by the time she is an adult. I may buy more than one a year.
-That a mouse chewed holes through my tree skirt. I had to buy a new one.
-That I am only listening to Christmas music in my car while out doing my holiday errands to help me with my stress level. I like every song. There is one song, well its not actually the song but the person who sings it. I think its either Michael Bouble or Harry Connick Junior. You know the song "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth"? Well one of them sings it. I am sorry but a grown man talking about wanting his two front teeth kind of creeps me out. I seriously need earplugs when I hear this song. I don't know why it bothers me so much.
-That We are going into Boston to have dinner with my brother in law and his wife (who live in Florida), and a group of friends later. My daughter works in Boston so I will be going in early to hand deliver these cupcakes to her work today. She said that all of her office mates want to meet me. When I missed a week of treats for them while I was in New York, they asked about it. She has been asking me for a while lately to come in, so today is the day.
-That's all that I have for you because I am working today. It is the one day gift certificate sale, 25% off. The clients usually wait until this day to buy them for future services. It will be crazy. It will be fun for me because I get to work with my friend. There are typically not two people at the desk. Her husband already warned us to behave. Yeah right.
Have a great Thursday!
