The Horrible Trip to Olive Garden “Happy Birthday, Mommy!” screamed my son into my ear, while jumping on my bed and waking me up. “Can you give me at least this day to sleep in?” I asked, while being a little annoyed as I opened my eyes looking around the room, with my gaze ended up looking straight into Tommy’s green eyes. “But it’s already 10 a.m., how long do you want to sleep?

Now, all I needed to do is to find a perfect outfit, this can be a very challenging task of all, for most women like me. Especially, considering on how I hate shopping. By five o’clock I was ready, considering on how lucky I was that I found something to wear in
