I Planned on having a Boring Day

But, it actually turned out to be a really great day and full of activity and I didn't even have to leave my house! First, my aunt from Alabama called. She's not really my aunt, she's my mom's best friend. They met in the 60s when they worked together and were friends ever after. My mom's (and my dad's) deaths have been very hard for her to deal with. She is in her later 80s and is in really terrible health -she's confined to bed, etc. Today, she wasn't always making sense, but I love hearing from her because then at least I know she's doing well enough to make a phone call to me.

We talked for quite a while and I told her my news about finding (or them finding me) my biological family. She was so happy for me and said she had always wanted me to do this, so she was relieved. I think she hates to think of me as this "orphan".

Later, my biological mom called and we talked for a long while. About midway through our conversation, the door bell rang and it was a delivery of flowers for me. I couldn't imagine who would have sent them. They were beautiful. They were from my aunt (aforementioned) who just loves to send flowers! They were accompanied by a note reminding me that she loves me. So sweet.

Then, if all that weren't enough, FedEx came by with a new dresser I had ordered for Sissy (free shipping!). She has the dresser that Buddy had as a baby and that thing is falling apart. Now, this new one is nothing fancy. It wasn't expensive and I'm well aware that it's particle board parts, etc. But, I really just wanted something halfway decent (i.e. the second drawer bottom isn't falling out) until we get her bedroom furniture for a big girl room, which will be another 2 years or so from now. We kept Buddy in the crib 'til he was 3.

Alas, it is laundry and injection time. Notice how those two things dominate my evening schedule? Sad, no? Ah, well, at least it gets finished!

Same blog time, same blog channel, friends.


  1. I agree, a very good day. I can't even begin to imagine how you feel about your family finding you.

  2. I guess I missed the details of your being found. If I scroll down, will I find out what happened?

  3. I'm glad you say injection instead of shot. A shot a load could make the laundry time go by faster, though not necessarily better.
