Today was a day of ups and downs. I'm focusing on the ups because I feel very spoiled.
Every year, my mom asks me what I want for my birthday and Christmas and I have no answer. Then she asks Q and he has the same answer. After a number of years of this my mother decides she needs to buy me something to make up for the missed years of gifts and I get something really, really good and she says it's for both of us, which this time translates to big gift for me, and Q gets things as I make them using it. This is what I drove to Austin to pick up today.
While picking this up, I managed to lock the keys to the van in the car. Then I panicked and realized that I have no idea what to do in this situation. I have always worried about locking the keys in the car with the girls in there and I knew I would just break a window in that case, but as the girls, my MIL, and I were all outside the car, this wasn't really necessary. After calls to my mom and Q and USAA, it was straightened out and we got back into the car and went to eat and a visit to Austin TexStyles, where I picked up some cool fabrics.
Then after a congested drive back into San Antonio where Fiesta is going on, we returned to my in-laws and my FIL gave me a new lens for my camera. My MIL and I played with her new generic ruffler for the Brother which is extremely similar to the brand name one that costs four times as much (and which I own) and I brought the girls home.
I found on my doorstep a box from my cousin, who sent me fabric!
Now, I need to pack my previously planned projects and replace them with new ones.
