It's All Relative....

July 24th, 2007 at 01:49 pm

We don't have a really large family. So we tend to celebrate all that we can. We usually have at least one birthday a month, but a couple of months contain two. July is one of them. I sent off one birthday gift and went to join the rest of the family for a birthday celebration last week. The second day I was there, the gals of the family had a planned girls' day out. Since DIL is going to be a new mom soon, we decided this would be a good time to have one. Last year, I gave her some money and we went shopping for clothes. I made one mistake. I forgot to find out whether the poor thing liked to shop. She doesn't really. She went along out of politeness, but I finally realized she wasn't having much fun. So this time I was smarter and asked what she would like to do. She picked pedicures. Now, this would be an adventure for me because I had never had one. We invited DD to go also, and we had a long, pampered afternoon. I paid for the pedicures since they are on limited budgets, and I was the one that suggested the day out. Over the course of the few days, we took turns picking places to eat out and had fun together. I was sorry that Hubby had to miss because of work. I didn't begrudge any of the money because that is what you should save to do. Fun things with people you love without worrying about it. I finally get it. So this week is all about cutting back and replenishing the fun money. For just those times when all have a moment to spend together. And my long, boney feet actually look kinda cute for once.....

    What a great MIL to be in-tune with what your DIL likes and doesn't like!
