A Little Goes a Long Way

My mom always forgets to unearth a few gifts at Christmas. There's always a little extra something hidden in a drawer or behind clothes in the closet or under the bed. She always finds them after all the festivities have died down.

This year was no exception.

I came home from work on Thursday to find wrapped presents waiting for me on the coffee table. My mom had forgotten to give me and Kev a bag of Potato Pearls (THE BEST instant mashed potatoes in the world) and the Red Album from Weezer. My Martha Stewart Living also happened to come in the mail so it was like Christmas all over again.

It made me realize that even though there was one day left in the work week, I'd survive.

Thanks Gail!!


  1. *grin* Merry Belated Christmas!

  2. Ooo! What a fun thing to have happen! I love that idea. Maybe I'll start forgetting some things on purpose!!

  3. thats kind of fun you got some late christmas presents. Presents are always fun to open. Butterscotch went to town on the stuffed animal because shad kept hidding the squeeker so she couldnt find it, we had fluff everywhere.

  4. I had to laugh at the potato pearls. We give similar gifts, those practical things we need and love. For me it's lemon curd. I used to get the jojoba shower gel from Crabtree & Evelyn. They took it away for a few years and that ended our romance. I think it might be back now.


Thanks for stopping by!
