Christopher has his class schedule all screwed up and didn't realize it until yesterday....the first day of classes. GRR!!! I don't know what he's doing now....but it's going to screw up my days since I have to take him. We still don't know when he's going to have surgery. Oh, and I found out last night Angela's hand is still bothering her. I should have taken her in to get it xrayed....now I don't know what I should do.
So...what are we celebrating today....
1). National Hat Day: I'm not a big hat person, as I usually look silly in hats. This holiday is se the day to wear and enjoy a hat of your choice and style. Isn't it great that hats come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles? There's one to fit every size head and personality. Often, hats are used to make a statement, or to promote a cause or a product.
2). Strawberry Ice Cream Day: Oh yum...I do like strawberry ice cream, though I find it odd that this holiday is in January! Strawberry ice cream was one of the first flavors 'invented', as early ice cream was vanilla based with just bits of fruit mixed in. One of the earliest documented uses of strawberry ice cream comes from 1744 – long before George Washington and Thomas Jefferson caught on to the joys of ice cream in the latter half of the 18th century. It was in 1744 that Maryland Governor Thomas Bladen began serving strawberry ice cream to impress dignitaries and other house guests.
3). Humanitarian Day: In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., three annual "Emancipation Days of Respect" were created to promote unity, respect, and remembrance. The first of those is "Humanitarian Day," which is celebrated each year on Jan. 15, Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. Humanitarian Day was founded to remember and honor all those who helped end racial segregation in America. Everyone is encouraged to wear white to show their support.
I hope you have a good Tuesday. I'm still trying to figure out how no one put the garbage out for pick-up yesterday. By the time I remembered to check (Mike use to put it out in the mornings), it was too late. The truck had come and gone. It's going to be one of those weeks!
