Unexpected gifts

Hubby hubby just showed up out of the blue with a Starbucks latte for me. I was having quite the grumpy morning and this was just was I needed as a pick me up.

The grumpiness started this morning when I realized I didn't have the time to stop and get a coffee because we had to carpool and John was already a bit late for work. He has to take the car since he has to pick Tyler up to go to Preschool. This was on top of it being too hot last night (and not sleeping), face blemishes and allergies (I just wanted to scratch my face off!).

BTW we are carpooling because the beloved Goldiglocks is having major engine trouble and is seeing the doc at the moment (2 whole weeks of repair... $$).

This is all to say that I love random gifts. They don't have to be big (hence my day being fixed by a latte), just thoughtful. Sometimes I think of buying people random gifts, but then I wonder if they would think that was weird. Why I would think that? I have no idea, because who thinks receiving gifts is weird?! This is my (belated) New Years resolution. Random gifts...

effective IMMEDIATELY!

another thought... I should post some photos of Goldiglocks when I get home. We sure do miss her.
