I got a serious amount of wrapping done today and feel like I almost have a grip on everything that needs to be done for the rest of the week. I also did a couple of videos I’ve been meaning to get uploaded, now we just need Rich to edit them. I did some shopping as well (for myself mostly), but it was nice to get out and accomplish some small tasks, like taking things back that I’ve had in my car for a few weeks. I’m not sure about all of you, but I’m one of those people who finds things I should have returned months after buying them. I kick myself when that happens, but I blame it on my medicines. They unfortunately make me very forgetful, so forgetful in fact, that I can watch an entire movie and not remember seeing it. It’s frustrating and a little bit embarrassing. I’ll tell Rich that I saw a promotion for a movie and think we should watch it and he’ll say, “we just watched it last weekend.” It’s crazy how much I forget. It’s just one of those things, though. I can’t live without the medicines, so I have to accept the side affects that go with it. I do think sometimes people think I use it as an excuse when I forget something important, like a birthday or a lunch date, but I swear I don’t.
I’ve got more wrapping to do tonight, so I need to get serious about it and make sure it’s finished before tomorrow as I have to deliver everything then. I really hope the family are pleased with our gifts and that someday, when they are in a better financial position, they’ll remember that someone was there for them when they needed help, and they will pay it forward to someone else in need. It’s a great thought and gives me a lot of hope and faith in others..
