Monday, we stayed late at work to wait for the house to pass their version of the tax bill. Around 9:30 PM, we decided to make a pot of coffee - a very strong pot. At about 10:00 PM, they finished. Thus, I was sent home jazzed up on coffee and could not sleep. I decided to make the best of it, so I got up and picked out a blank card, a pretty label from Etsy and some coordinating papers for a Mother's Day card.
Finally, on Thursday, I embroidered the card while I was waiting for conference committee to start. Then, I lined the inside of the lilac card with a navy paper and a white and yellow stripped paper.
I added a little note, addressed, stamped and got it in the mail.
At work today, I got a call from my Mum, saying that she had received my card and that Rep. Moe had dropped off her pink tulips and peonies. Then, we talked about state and local politics. Happy Mother's Day Mom!
