Saturday was birthday and Easter prep day. I drove around town, more shopping. More Costco. Rain and cold. It felt like Thanksgiving. Another unfortunate discovery Friday night, by the way, our dwarf hamster died. She was just curled up sweetly in her little nook. We were all sad. So Saturday Mary cleaned out the cage, quite earnestly, and I went to pick up two new dwarf hamster friends. Petco knows me now.
Grandma came over to watch the little ones and I took Sam out to celebrate his birthday. He has been wanting to go to Olive Garden his whole life practically. Not so easy to do in a big family. I had a great time with him. I am grateful for Sam.
