When to write a Thank You Note?


I had written on Facebook a month or so  ago (I was a little miffed that day) that I had not received a thank you from someone I had given a gift to.

Brookieo??? I think I have heard them called chocolate chip brownie with Oreo cakes but Brookieo is much more fun! I have also heard them called “slutty brownies” (because when you break up with your boyfriend you eat everything in sight and go all slutty-just repeating what I have been told) but I didn’t want to answer of any Delaney’s questions on that one. heh heh.

You know I work from home and that I have a couple of college girls that come over and help me with the kids, the house cleaning and the chores. I call them my “mother’s helpers”.
