No matter how late I stay up, I still have to get up at 7 a.m. It'll be earlier than that when school starts next month. Why can't I go to bed earlier?
I swear, it's the laundry.
I took my mom out to eat for her birthday today, to her favorite restaurant (Tumbleweed). She wanted to go to the one that's really far away...as my daughter and I were driving there to meet her, we figured out why...there's a bookstore in the same shopping center, to which Mom received about $150 worth of gift certificates for at her birthday party Saturday. She thought she was being slick...so my daughter and I got to the restaurant first, ordered our drinks, and as soon as Mom came in and sat down, we asked her what time the bookstore closed.
The guilty look on her face was priceless! We collapsed in laughter...
I'm so thankful for my mother, and for my daughter, and for today.
