Happy Birthday

August 18 (otherwise known as yesterday) was Tom’s birthday (that’s Phil’s Dad for those of you not paying attention).  Phil is still hunting, so us girls –  Grammy included – went to dinner and had a big fat slice of lemon meringue pie, Tom’s favorite. 

Then the little girls and I came home, I had a drink (Mike’s hard lemonade, staying with the lemon theme) and I wrote thank you notes for about an hour and a half.  Who knew that you are ALWAYS supposed to send notes for the following situations:

Sympathy letters, flowers, or mass cards
After being entertained by your boss
For notes or gifts of congratulations

The boss one makes sense, and I guess I can see sending a thank you for a note of congratulations, but I think maybe the sympathy letters rule is just to keep the grieving busy.  It seems to be working, so far.
