29 Gifts- Day 9

Today my gift was sharing my parents with a coworker at lunch. I know that sounds like a weird gift, but usually when my parents and I have lunch together I like for it to be just us. Possessive, I know, but have you ever loved someone or something so much you want the dinner or movie or whatever to be just you and them? Date night - leave the kids at home. Well, I'm kind of like that with my parents at lunch. This is our special family time. But today I welcomed a coworker to our table when she came into the break room looking for a table - and the four of us had a really good time! She watches the same British mysteries as we do, so it was a rousing conversation. My dad really got into the Downton Abbey topic, left me out completely because I don't watch that one - LOL. Maybe we should adopt her. :)

I forgot to mention my other gift yesterday - I was excited about it, so I'm surprised I forgot. But yesterday was a screwy day. On Tuesday the Ronald McDonald event was in the same parking lot as JoAnn's Fabrics. I knew my coworker was disappointed about not being able to find sky blue cross stitch fabric (she'd checked two cities but no luck) so that she could make a dove and a cross for part of her daughter's confirmation outfit, so I took advantage of being so close to JoAnn's and found the fabric for her! (And mom gave me a 50% off coupon, so I got it for a steal!) Anyway, I gave it to her on Wednesday, and she was sooooooo happy and excited! Made my morning.

The sense of wanting them just for you is not at all strange. I get the same about some people.
