birthday presents for my mama

My mama's birthday is this Saturday and my daddy decided to take her to Tennessee for her birthday week. They left last Sunday and went to Nashville and today they were headed to Sieversville for the next several days. As her present, Chris & I are paying for their hotel room for the Sieversville portion of their trip and she texted me earlier this evening to let me know that they made it safely and the room was lovely and all she had to do was give her card for incidentals since her "daughter has already paid for the room." This is the first year I have ever been in a position to do something really nice for her for her birthday and I think paying for their room for a 5 day trip counts as nice. She was pleased and I am pleased that she was. I think I may do the same sort of thing for my daddy's birthday in March.

I pretty much spent all of my day sleeping. I fell yesterday morning and by lunch time I was in pain which only intensified overnight. I was restless which I blamed on the new bed but I think the pain may have had something to do with it as well. So after getting Elizabeth off to school and Chris off to work, I laid down and ended up sleeping until Beth got home from school. I never sleep like that so I guess my body really needed it.

I supervised Beth making a cake and I frosted it and then we decorated it. I took Chris to pick up his truck from Kevin's shop and he said it drives like a brand new truck now. I am grateful for that.

As dumb as it may be, I think I am going to call it an early night and go to bed. I am just completely worn out for some reason.
