Four small victories today:
1. Lia definitely smiled at me this morning! It's the most beautiful thing in the world.
2. I bought my dad's Christmas present. He's so hard to shop for but I finally got an idea, and thanks to the wonders of the internet, it should be on my doorstep in a few days! And with that, I'm pretty sure my Christmas shopping is done. :) Now I need to wrap, and confirm with R that we're not getting each other anything this year (otherwise I'm in trouble!).
3. Found a place that will board White Bunny while we're out of town. I can't believe we'll be paying as much as we will just to make sure the rabbit doesn't fall over and die, but it is what it is. Luckily this place is nearby and has room for him over the holidays.
4. Aaand, I got out for an unexpected girls' event! I'm usually terrible at being spontaneous, nor am I the most social of creatures, but I got a last-minute invite to a make-up party at the mall down the street this evening and I took it. It was so nice to get out and talk to adults other than Robert. (He's great but I feel like my social circle has shrunk to miniscule proportions in the last few weeks and that I'm totally losing touch with the outside world.) And I love my daughter but it was great to take an hour off from her. I used a purse instead of a giant diaper bag! It made me really miss getting dressed up, working, socializing, and pretty much everything that goes with being an independent adult, but I'm still so glad I got a little taste of it again. Thanks Stephanie! :)
