Hey y’all! Guess what? People seem to like me!! I have friends:) So this weekend was a certain erm birthday. My husband isn’t known for planning things. That isn’t his fault necessarily…it’s just the way things are. However, in my family, birthdays have always been a big deal. So my mom planned to take me shopping…and everyone came along. The kids, my dad and good ole’ hubby.
We went to the outlets…but it was like they were giving away free puppies or something. So it wasn’t really a good idea. I did enjoy myself in one store, but after that, I was like, oh yeah, this is why I do not shop. I don’t. I can’t stand the commercialization of things. Lines out the door just to get $5 off or whatever. Maybe you all like it, but meh. I don’t.
So anyway, it was all they could do to keep me out to a certain time. But when we finished dinner, I told them I was coming home to put on my special comfy jammies…I bought myself for my birthday. Shh. I did. I bought erm these like snuggie, zip up long john things. Hahahaha. But seriously. I did.
But surprise!! People were coming over to my house…and some were already in my house. And it was wonderful because they had food and things. Ok, they had wine. But the food was gluten-free and that was oh so thoughtful that they went to that kind of trouble for little ole me. But I had to stay in real clothes…but that was ok. We had a fire pit and we talked. I miss talking to people. I did pick up my phone to snap a few photos, but really almost forgot to do that. So I appreciate the party because it was about being real again. Talking and being in the moment. The one that is right now. Now tomorrow, or a few days from now, or I have to do x,y,z because x, y, z will be there. Please connect in the here and now with your peeps. They will be ever so thankful and appreciative…and grateful.
And they will be really HAPPY.
