Again this is the time for Five on Friday.
The day started as usual. I was in the mood to spend the day in laid back mode. In the morning when I was about to get in the car, my son told me that next day is 14th February. I totally forgot that. I was under the impression that Wednesday would be 14th. I checked my phone. Yes, he was right. I felt that the sky had been falling on my head. I had to finish all the gifts to be given on 14th. While crossing the road in front of the school our crossing helper Mr. A told me Monday and Tuesday would be minimum day!! Another jolt!! I also forgot that. I had only three hours in my hand to finish all the gift boxes. I rushed back home from school , and started finishing them. Somehow I managed to finish them within 11:30 in the morning. On the other hand my house was in mess. I couldn't do any chores since morning. In the mean time mom of one of my son's friends sent me a message whether I could take care of her son for few hours after school. I agreed to take care of the boy. Anyway, I rushed to school to pick up my son. Then rushed back home . In a hurry I baked one cake, as that kid loves my home-baked cake. After coming back from school, I started doing chores one by one. When everything was done, the child went back home with his mom, teaching my son was finished the clock was ticking five thirty in the evening.I was a utterly exhausted.

Tuesday: Today was also another minimum day in school. On the top of that I had volunteer duty in the school library. I went to school in the morning.Then I came back. Again went to volunteer then I came back. Again went to school to pick him. Within four hours I went to school three times. Wasn't that crazy?When in the evening I came back with my from the activities, a little surprise was waiting for me. Mr. Man bought an orchid for me on the occasion of Valentine's Day. That was a beautiful gift I received from him. I had a plan for a special quite dinner for Valentine's Day. However, HE wanted to of out for dinner. I knew all the restaurants would be crowded, but he was not in the mood to listen. We went to Thai restaurant. Though that food was delicious, but it was so crowded we had wait for a long.

Thursday: I woke up in the morning sweating. I was dreaming something. Yes!! I was dreaming that I was sitting in the examination hall for the final exam of my Mathematics major. After waking in the morning it took me time to realize that the final exam was over eighteen long years back, and I got my bachelor degree also.
