Dan is working the weekend and boy, has it been a doozy of a day. Griff and Reese keep bickering, Xander won't take a nap, everybody seems overtired - I know I am, and the older two both had a feverish virus last week, so maybe they're still down from that. Two great things salvaged the day:
1. Dan made it home for dinner and bedtime
2. He came upstairs carrying an unexpected package that had been sitting on the doorstep.
I opened it up (I didn't place a Lush order, what gives?) and found this beaut, sent to me by my friend Angela as a thank-you for being her Virginia Beach guide:
Somebody needs to bring back Smell-O-Vision or create a scratch-n-sniff blog technology or something. This box is amazing. It's too pretty to open just yet, but I know it contains two bath bombs and two bubble bars, and their combined honeysuckle, lavender, rose, and citrus cents are absolutely wonderful. I might just wait a few days to open it and enjoy the anticipation. Right now my office is beautifully perfumed. This is like a mail-order hug from a sister.
Ang is the reason I have a Lush addiction to start with, so she knew how much I would love this. What she had no way of knowing was that I would so badly need this pick-me-up today. Thank you, babe!
