I had a busy Wednesday, which is not the usual for me, but I had put off my weekly grocery trip because other scheduling conflicts. So, I went yesterday.
The Evil Twin had jury duty (or at least, he was in a pool of potential jurors for a trial). I was sad and I missed him. It's different than his regular job - at least I can call him there to check in once a day and I know roughly what his schedule is... when he'll be home, etc. I try to have dinner ready when he gets home.
He made it to the final 19 of jurors and then was dismissed! He was the first to take the "Walk of Shame" ™ Thank YOU, God! I did not want him on a jury case for weeks on end. He is my rock. I couldn't bear anymore drama with him not being around when I expect him. (truthfully, if I could have him home with me always, I would find that both good and bad).
But, I arrived home on Wednesday to find two packages on my landing.
One was from my super special girl, Ginger Magnolia. She sent this:
The top side is this:
How funny is that? I say: "VERY". Plus, lawsy knows I'm a sinner!
Then, we had two separate shipments from UPS for the kids' birthdays. These gifts are from Buzzardbilly, who does NOT need to spoil my children, but she still does.
Her gift for Sissy:
Both kids are totally stoked about the possibilities.
Here's what Buddy received:
They are both thrilled. Especially Bud - he knows he can help Sissy with her gift and he is beyond excited.
In a few hours, I will take them both to their yearly "well-child" check up.
It was an exciting day around here yesterday!
And, we are extremely blessed to have such good friends in our lives. :-)
