It's getting closer!

The 28th is coming fast. Surgery day. S-Day! I just realized this morning I have no more days alone. Griffin is home sick, so the last two days I would have been solo have become something entirely different. All the amazing things I was going to do in those last two days now have to happen with at least one kid around. UGH!

We cleaned out the basement last weekend. Oh, the s*%t you accumulate. I think having a basement is a bad idea. Just more space to put crap you should throw out. However, I did find a few things to sell on eBay and now we're $140.00 richer. Woo Hoo! Gas for Up North and $40.00 in groceries. Exciting life, huh?

The Christmas gifts are complete except Joe's parents. Very difficult to buy for. Oh, and my cousin had the nerve to send a gift. I really don't want to start exchanging presents with them. We never have before, why would we start now? What to do? They sent a lovely boxed gift of chocolates and coffee, to "help get us through the holidays." I totally appreciate the gift, but I don't really even know them anymore. I haven't seen them in 3 years, maybe. So can I just send a lovely thank you card and be done with it. Or am I expected to gift back? I was thinking of sending them a fairy ornament, but then I've set a precedent that we gift each other. What to do? What to do?

Send them a thank you and be done.

My offer still stands for the 28th, your surgery day, which by the way I read as your sugary day when I first started reading your post. I was like, what? Is she making a gingerbread house or something?
