Soon it's my birthday.
I put a note on the refrigerator saying:
"If anyone is interested, I would like new red pot holders."
Once upon a time I used to get excited about jewelry or other expensive goodies.
My, my!, how age mellows our expectations -- and NEEDS!!
Last year I did get something expensive= I'll bet I got just as much thrill out of my new tires as you did about your new diamonds!!
Last night I asked if anyone saw my note since nothing had been said. A called out from the other room, "I know Mommy! You want new red potholders!"
I'll let you know what shows up.
