I’m sorry you had a breakdown, but I’m glad everything is fine.Something I've been stressed about all week about is finally over and everything was fine. I was so worried that I had a breakdown last night. So happy it's over. Sorry for not many details; privacy reasons.
I used to love this time of year when I was teaching, so many treats and good feelings to make teachers feel appreciated for the work they do. I'm glad your daughter appreciates your efforts.When I got up this morning my DD had a wrapped present for me with a card and painting for Teacher Appreciation Week.
She's so sweet. I really didn't expect anything. I always decorate the kid's bedroom doors after they go to sleep the night before their birthdays and we get them a hellium balloon every year (except DS's birthday last year because there was a helium shortage). So now she decorates my door and the house. When I had a tooth pulled she left a handful of pennies by my pillow. I know she does that kind of stuff because it means something to her. And that makes it mean more to me too.I used to love this time of year when I was teaching, so many treats and good feelings to make teachers feel appreciated for the work they do.

Children show their appreciation in so many ways and your daughter is showing how much she loves you. I think it's important to have traditions to pass onto them. My parents did it with my sister and I which is why I carried on the same traditions with my children. Just wait until DD and DS grow up and want to take you out to dinner for special occasions or surprise you with a gift card to one of your favorite places to shop. I never expect it either but it's nice to know how much they care about us.I always decorate the kid's bedroom doors after they go to sleep the night before their birthdays and we get them a hellium balloon every year (except DS's birthday last year because there was a helium shortage).

OMGosh... the same thing happened to my, last week, at Trader Joes.. I also made a quick trip, next door to PetSmart.I just got home from a too long trip to Walmart. I got the rest of my tomato and pepper plants and a few flowers. Plus we went through toys, shoes, clothing and toilitries looking for various things (and letting DS use some birthday money). I was getting a headache by the time we were leaving so I let the kids get a treat since it was past lunch time and I got a Dr Pepper. We got to the car and my car key was missing from the carabiner clip I keep them hooked to my purse on! The rest were there; but not the one I'd used to drive there. We had been so many places in the store so I was not happy! No one turned them in to customer service so I checked with the cashier we'd just been at and then we headed to the garden center. The door people there didn't have them either...but DS found them under some plants!! And the remote for our home security system was with them!! Talk about relief!! I wanted to lay down right there in the garden center.
Wow! Tell him great save! Good job.DS found them under some plants!! And the remote for our home security system was with them!! Talk about relief!!
So glad you found it. I remember once when I was living on my own, my dad had to bring me a spare key. It was an hour drive!a kind person turned my lone key in to them.... I was so relieved...
You should definitely meet outdoors for ice cream and it will be something positive to look forward to. I think socialization is so important especially after so many people have been isolated during the pandemic.One of my friends was mentioning after we both are vaccinated he wants to take me to an ice cream place near his house when I'm able to visit. Love ice cream and looking forward to that.
Yes, absolutely beautiful family.My positively beautiful great-niece and nephew, Alyiah, and Grayson

After days of rain we may have a break today!! Sun is out now and it may warm up so perhaps I can sit outside. My posse has been coming around. Regina, the reverse skunk I saw last fall, had a baby girl!! She was here over the weekend. Tiny little thing with only one speck of black. I named her Ruth. Connie, Roberto, Willie, Rebel, and Tuxedo cat have been visiting.
