Yesterday, was my birthday. I spent it like most birthdays.....Christmas shopping. But before the shopping, I started my day with breakfast with Emily and Matt.
Next, it was off to the Amish furniture store to pick up a cabinet that I ordered a couple of months ago. Emily and Matt had shopping of their own to do, but before leaving me, Matt gave me directions to the popular shopping hub. And then, I was left on my own to shop in the great city of Greenville. I was headed to the shoe store when.....Oh Lordy B......I got trapped in traffic under the red light, no more than two blocks down the road. I had already encountered a woman pulling out in front of me, nearly causing a crash. I decided that instead of ramming her and causing a scene on my birthday, that I would let there be peace on earth or at least right there in Greenville, South Carolina. And then there's this thing..... I am a wimp when it comes to heavy traffic and crowds. So, I decided to get the heck outta there.
I was homeward bound, when I decided to go to Greenwood, instead. Less traffic, less crowds......one hour and my Christmas shopping was done. I had a late lunch and then stopped by Publix to pick up groceries for our Christmas dinner with Emily, Matt, Lidia and Sawyer, before leaving for Colorado.
Hmmm......before I knew it, the day was over and thank goodness I lived to wonder what next year's birthday will bring.
