5 of 31: giving (and taking)

Today I did nothing. I slept in much later than I should have, packaged up the real batch of Irish beer brownies, met a friend for lunch, hit the sporting good's store for a goggle request, the pharmacy, the post office, the bank and then home. I feel so relaxed.

[contented sigh]

I have to say that I'm mighty proud of the St. Pat's package that was shipped today:
  • Lucky Charms
  • Irish beer brownies
  • Irish Springs soap
  • The Leprechaun horror flick trilogy
  • popcorn
  • Shamrock boxers
  • green M&M's
  • green clover napkins
  • and the norms: gum, clorox wipes, Muscle Milk bars
  • oh, right, and the goggles (per request)
It was the most thematic box to date.

On another note, I'm stealing away to Atlanta tomorrow with a friend for a weekend of bonding, IKEAing, H&Ming and three days of distractions, a gift from The Staff Sergeant. On Valentine's day he told me to, "take some money, get a hotel and take yourselves out to dinner on me." So we are.

[he's amazing.]

You put me to shame with your care packages! I love how you have a theme to each one.

Have fun in Atlanta! And don't get lost...all those "Peachtree" streets, blvds, roads, etc. confused me! I wish we had H&M...
