On Thursday evening my mom took us out for me and my sister's birthdays. We had good steak and really good dessert.
We gambled - I have no such luck at anything. But Dawn and Todd both won over $50. I was pumped just to win back $0.02 on the $20 my mom gave me to use.
The four of us don't get to spend time very much, so it was awesome sitting at a table with them. Next time though, I won't be gambling.
And for the days following, my mom and I have spent every day together. It's so cool. I love her. I help picked the new color for our bathroom, the shower curtain and towels. She also bought my my birthday/Christmas present yesterday...which will come this week (and you will know when it does). I think she should move to California with me.
