2. My parents sent me a giftcard to Athleta. This is what they wrote on the card.
3. Also, since I shared my biggest flaw (perhaps) yesterday, so many of you commented that you have the same problem. Thank the Lord, is all I have to say to that. It's quite nice to know that I'm not the only one who can't tell left from right.
4. I can't even tell you how much I thoroughly love this coat. It excites me when I get to put it on. I look forward to going outside these days. Strange, huh?
5. One of my random acts of kindness this week is giving away a Starbucks gift card. You should get on that.
My other one? I wrote out thank-you notes to students who gave me Christmas gifts. I've always made it a point to send thank-you notes. The first time I did it was after my high school graduation, thanking family for the gifts they gave me. Since then, I always try to send thank-yous. A week after our wedding, we drove to Alaska. I wrote our thank-yous on the way, in the hotel rooms each night. As soon as we had a permanent address, I mailed them all. Took me less than 3 weeks. I'm oddly proud of this.
Anyway, I like to set a good example for the children by drinking diet coke for lunch (which happens more often than I'd like to admit). I also give them thank-you notes. I'd say it all evens out.
