Well, I cannot believe it. Guess what I got handed to me yesterday? A thank you note with a gift certificate and an apology for the late delivery!
So, they didn't exclude anyone after all. Am I surprised? Absolutely. Am I relieved? Somewhat as it makes the institution less cut throat in my eyes. The note means more to me than the gift. I'm sending a thank you note back today.
We are planning something fun tonight. After work and dinner (maybe out), I'm returning the one laptop bag that is too big (not the fun part) and then going to look at more up to date travel books. The one I'm reading is 3 years old so I want to see if enough has changed to warrant getting a new one.
Yes, I find bookstores fun. A large part because I rarely buy books anymore but I love them. (I'm not sure I'll jump on the whole digital readers as you would have to still buy books...) I'll likely get a hot chocolate too afterwards.
Have a great Friday everyone!
