Today I actually had a productive day. I got 2 loads of laundry done while my daughter was at swim lessons. We had our front door refinished because it was getting baked by the sun and looked like total crap. It looks really nice now. Gotta fix up the shack to sell it in the spring. My daughter and I both had haircut appointments today. She looks so cute and fresh with a few inches cut off. I look exactly the same, except without the split ends. I think I need to go get some highlights or something.
Then we went over the mall and bought some snow boots for her so we will be prepared when the inevitable snow begins to fly. We’ve been stuck before with no snow boots and had to run out and get some. Not cool. Next we hit up Joann’s and they had scrapbook paper on sale 12 for $2. Score!! I bought $50 worth of paper! And I had a 25% off coupon. Woohoo! I have a lot to scrapbook with all the photos my mom saved from my ancestors.
I’ve also decided to start writing a book about my mom’s life. She led a very interesting life. One of the last things she said to me was that she was loving reading my blog. She said that I wrote so many things as a kid, she thought that I was going to write a book when I grew up. So I decided that I would give it a try. I don’t know if anything will ever come of it or if it will get published. I started yesterday and so far I’m only on page 26, but if nothing else, it’s helping me heal.
