This is the big birthday month in our family. Happy birthday to Mom, Dad, and Brother!
I tried to be organized and together and got my Mom a present a few months ago. It arrived, I felt like I had in some way outdone myself simply by getting it early and being prepared. It sat on my dining room table for a long while, until Mom came to the house for a visit- and in a rush, I "hid" the present in the "perfect" spot where she wouldn't accidentally stumble upon it.
Well apparently, this was indeed a really good hiding place, because we're celebrating the birthdays on Saturday, and I have no clue where Mom's present is.
That's it, I'm not planning ahead anymore!
