(with room for milk) from Starbucks and my day was smooth sailing from then on. I actually got to edit a manuscript that's coming out in Fall 2009. It has some intense material. What makes it even better is there was sassy dialogue and cursing in it; my two favorites!
Anyway, after work Nick called me and we went out to a restaurant . It was fabulous (his words exactly). The salmon was divine...but the spinach (I hate spinach if its not creamed) was anything but. I think the flame that was once doused between us is starting to pick up speed. He reminds me of Big from Sex and the City; we've been through so much but over time we tend to gravitate toward each other.
Anywho, I'm a dumb ass...well at least for today. I was wrapping gifts for my family in the living room, making sure I had the chain on the main entrance door so no one would catch me. So I finish wrapping my supervisor's gift (the Burberry Teddy Bear I got Saturday) and I was so busy trying to put my Mom''s gift away before she got home...that I left my Dad's gift, out in the open!!! He came in and everything was fine. It wasn't until he got up and saw it, saying:
"This is a nice hat. Whose hat is this?"
I was floored. I forgot I had his gift out in the open. I couldn't even hide my expression. My jaw dropped and my eyes went wide. He read my face and instantly knew it was soon to be his. I just reacted saying:
(When he was wasn't looking I wrapped the hat and put it with the other gifts lol...I'm a sassy lil' devil.)
Ugh...I think I'm going to have to get him another gift to make up for my absent-mindedness. It's such a nice hat too. It's a royal blue North Face skully-hat.
(I couldn't find a picture of a royal blue hat lol.)
Hey, it's just another reason for me to go shopping. With that being said, let's get to the quote of the day for Dec. 23rd:
"Don't be intimidated by those who are more 'accomplished' than you. Stay focused and your success will come. And remember...they were once in your shoes."
I have to go finish wrapping gifts for my family before I go to bed, since they're all sleeping now. I wish you the best of happiness. Stay true pretties.
Peace, love & Obama,
