- Another early morning yoga class (it's getting easier!)
- Going for breakfast with an old school friend (the emphasis is on "school friend", not "old" or "old school"). We were close friends growing up and even though I rarely see her now, we always have lots to talk about when we do meet up. Long-time friends are more and more precious to me as I grow older (it's hard to use the word precious without saying it in my head like Gollum).
- Going for the first run in weeks while Neve was at swimming lessons
- A delicious supper/snack of fresh salsa and fajitas at my niece Bailey's Pampered Chef party. I was starving and it was so yummy. Speaking of Pampered Chef, if anyone has something they've been wanting to order from there, I'm sure Bailey could add it to her order. I'm pretty excited about a whipped cream maker I ordered. It promises to make whipped cream in 30 seconds. I will be testing and timing that the second it arrives. You can see their products here.
Hmm, there's nothing really bad to report. We're trying to make some school decisions that I didn't expect to be making, but we've got two good options to choose from so it's not actually a negative thing. Oh, Spencer was home sick today, but honestly it was kind of nice having him lying on the couch while I worked. Except today was when report cards were sent home and he wasn't there to get his. He tells us so little about what goes on at school so the report card is one of the only barometers I have of his school life. Now I have to wait until tomorrow. Life is hard.
And finally, here's both a low and a high. The mermaid tail blanket I ordered for Neve for Christmas never arrived. The company I ordered it from (Rosegal) claim it was lost by the shipping company and say it's not their fault and because I didn't purchase insurance, too bad for me. However, they said because I was a "valued customer" - even though I've never ordered anything from them before and never will again - they would let me buy the same item again at 50% off OR they'd give me a store credit for 50% of the amount. We messaged back and forth quite a few times, with them firmly sticking to their offer and me refusing it. But eventually they agreed to refund the whole amount to my VISA. This was a pleasant surprise for me because I am actually very poor at negotiating and rarely achieve success. But we still don't have a mermaid tail blanket, much to Neve's dismay.
Your turn to share your highs & lows. Don't be shy!
