I’m wearing my pj’s and doing laundry. I’m about to finish writing some notes to people and wrap up all the snail mail correspondence for a while.
I’m about to start and hopefully finish wrapping Christmas gifts. Today I will finish getting everything I need to. Just a little more for my Mom and sister.
Today is my sister’s birthday. We will probably be dining out somewhere this evening. I’m slightly annoyed with her. Over a month ago I asked her if she’d like to go to a spa for her gift. I would pay for her massage. Well, due to the fact that this was her gift, I was going to bum around Newbury Street while she got pampered. She agreed to the day and time and we made plans to do something after–grab a drink or meal. There was even an invitation to go to her place and hang.
I get a call 1 hour before she is supposed to meet me at my place. She says she needs to reschedule. She volunteers at a shelter and decided to adopt this kitty who has been badly injured but recovering well. I knew she was selected to adopt him and she was psyched about it. I don’t want to say she was lying, but she said she was at the shelter for four hours trying to have a cage fit into her car. I don’t mean to be selfish since this is her birthday gift, not mine, but hello? Why did she have to get the cat at that same time? So I say you know, I sort of feel blown off and then I get about a zillion, Now I feel so bad‘s. So the thing that pissed me off is that in her defense she says well, you wouldn’t have had fun waiting for me while I had my massage, anyway. What???
Bub is at the grocery store now and there’s so much to get done today. Christmas is only 8 days away. I’m excited for our road trip to Maryland to see Bub’s parents. Blasting Christmas songs and chatting…We’re going to DC on Saturday to visit one of my best friends in her hood. It should be a fun weekend. We offered to cook Christmas dinner too. I love baking and cooking and already announced to my parents that next Christmas, we‘re hosting! Yay!
***So I just talked to my sister. She feels really bad about yesterday. She’s rescheduled the spa treatment, so we’ve made amends.
I’m off to wrap.
