I have to tell you a little bit about my day. First, my alarm went off at 6:30, no big deal, as it always does when the boys are with me so I can get them up & ready for school. Unfortunately, I kind of forgot they were here (not used to mid-week drop offs) and cussed at my phone thinking someone was texting me at that unGodly hour. Up, showered & dressed - boys at school on time!
Spent the better part of the next five hours with my mother.......... ok, not going to talk about that because I want this to be a positive blog emoticon
Went to "work" for my baby shower. Got spoiled with presents for Roo & I. Phenomenal!
When I got home, I noticed there was an envelope from one of the contractors that I used to do billing for. Before I left, I'd worked my butt off trying to get his past due invoices reconciled and processed. His wife, AKA his book keeper, had said "send me your home address as we'd like to send you a little something for your efforts". At the time, I was thinking baby present, flowers, chocolate.... Well, I opened the envelope and there was an invoice, payable to me, in the amount of $500 for "auditing and accounting magic" and a cheque for the same amount settling the account. I burst into tears. Colin said "MOM, what's wrong?!" and I just stood there. I couldn't make words. I've never felt so appreciated in the 7 years that I've worked for that company.
Oh! and while I was at work, I bought 50/50 tickets - won $28 emoticon
To say that this has been a good day, is an understatement. I feel truly blessed.
