I went to the post office and mailed my package to my secret pal. Hope she likes everything I sent.
It is a long week here at the office already — I am getting anxious to go see the little guy after Christmas. I have been told that he started talking about 10 days ago. I hope that Fashionista Daughter and I can keep up with him.
The fashionista needed a new cell phone and a new plan, and so she talked me into getting a family plan. There was a BOGO on the phone she wanted. So I now own a red Samsung Juke and have not the foggiest idea of how to use the darn thing. I have never been a cell phone person. The smaller the phone, the louder I seem to feel the need to speak. This thing is so small that I will probably shout at everyone. The FD has assured me that she can teach me how to use it, and that once I learn, I will love it. We shall see.
I have been steadily knitting cupcakes. I will take a photo once I get them embellished and begin stitching them together. FD told me last night that she would like to wear it on our trip to Nashville. Not likely. I am in the middle of baking and wrapping and finishing my shopping. I will be happy to have it done after New Year’s.
I got to talk to Soldier Daughter this morning for quite awhile on Yahoo Messenger between tasks at work. I had not heard from her in several weeks, so it was good to touch base. I have mailed so many packages over there that I have lost track of what I’ve sent. She has received everything except the last two boxes and those should arrive any day now. We will certainly miss her this Christmas.
I made a batch of eggnog bread last night and will bake another this evening and start baking cookies. We have an office cookie exchange on Friday and this year I am making butterscotch chip spice cookies. I just have to keep myself from eating them as I bake them!
