i think i see a theme forming with several of my gifts, replacing things that i lose. its a good thing there are twelve days because i need a lot of replacements! i really don't miss my gift from today often. only when i really need it do i kick myself for misplacing it. today i got an exact replica of my 6 inch umbrella that i lost sometime last year. maybe i will have to make elliott responsible for keeping track of this one, seeing how he is better at putting stuff back. ah, and steve thought i was low maintenance. think again.
