So what do you do when it's cold and rainy, you have no internet (so you can't work from home), and it's your birthday?
She also wanted to bring me breakfast in bed, which we compromised on coffee-hot chocolate in bed because I am not a breakfast person. And she made me a birthday crown, which I have to admit, was pretty awesome! She even glued some jewels which had fallen off one of her headbands onto it.
I bought this calendar at the World's First Target last year and it's been a great way for all of us to know what our family schedule is. We each have our own colour and this way we can see everything for the month at once.
Rachel got the owl chalkboard from Tim and Janice for Christmas and every month she updates it with a themed picture. This is a "blossom tree," as she calls it, because all the trees in our city are in bloom right now.
After that the internet guy had dropped off a new modem, which was supposed to fix our problem. Needless to say, it didn't. After 45 minutes on the phone with our internet provider, and explaining that I couldn't work from home without internet, and oh yeah, it was also my birthday, and crying, they promised to send someone over later that night.
So I continued my non internety fun by cutting teacups out of napkins for a project I'm working on.
