Mom left today. Among other things, she got me some plants, which I hope to not kill. Plus, she and my aunt and my grandparents got me a GPS!! It's going to be great. I get lost so often in Austin. And it really was a surprise, even though I did kind of expect one around Christmas-time. It was too perfect a gift for anyone to pass up.
Everyone who wrote, I really appreciate it. It really made it one of the best birthdays in years, to hear from so many people. I love emails and comments and Facebook and text messages!
There was a cold snap the day of my birthday, which was great. So here's the quote of the day:
Mom: Yep, this is the perfect weather for you: gloomy and cool.
