I feel like I am starting to get backed up in blog posts...and I have such a terrible memory that I start freaking out that I will want to look back on something, but not remember it, and then it will be lost forever.
I read an article in Reader's Digest last month (this month? See what I mean?!?!?) about a woman with an awful memory and seriously, seriously, completely and immeasurably related to it. I used to be able to memorize entire plays in high school. Now I can't remember a grocery list.
I went santa shopping at IKEA with my girl, Tiffany, next door neighbor extraordinaire, and my other girl through Tiffany, April, on the Tuesday before Christmas. It was a total, wonderful mom's night out...whirlwind shopping, quick dinner in the food section, and shopping without boundaries (ok, boundaries, but at least they were further out than normal, not-Christmas shopping).
It was just really lovely to spend an evening with friends shopping for loved ones (and me!).
The only downside was that we only had 2 hours to do ALL of IKEA. Oh, another downside was that I caved and ate an entire plate of meatballs...and did NOT feel good later. Total shock to my system. Won't do that again.
