Since I blogged 10 days ago, I . . .
Was completely celebrated on my birthday, which deserves a post all its own, but suffice it to say, my husband and kids really put together a fantastic family dinner including cleaning the house and even decorations.
Had dinner with Kathy.
Watched Up In the Air on DVD.
Officially retired and cleaned out the office. I emptied all the file cabinets and boxed up files. Cleaned out the desk, took all the cutesy cards off the bulletin board, gathered up the fun-colored post-its and my favorite pens, and moved all my stuff upstairs to the loft where my new desk is. Then I vacuumed and dusted and prepared the old office for its new occupant, my husband, who will have the place all to himself, as it should be.
Found a new desk on clearance at Target, for a steal.
Found a loveseat for the master bedroom for an even bigger steal.
Cleaned my son's room and found enough spare change under his bed to treat myself to Starbuck's.
Shopped with my 13-year-old daughter. It's amazing how my sense of fashion has suddenly improved. She couldn't get over how many cute outfits I kept bringing into the dressing room. The same things I've been trying to get her to wear for the past two years. You know, style basics like collars and buttons and belts and things that fit. Instead of sweats and her brother's t-shirts. "Mom," she exclaimed, "You're finding the cutest things!" There is a God. He's at Kohl's.
Watched lots of baseball. Watched it rain, snow, rain, snow and games were canceled. So, this week there are five games in five days, including makeup games.
Went to the eye doctor. Gave up on progressive lenses and ordered bifocals.
Realized the dogs trampled or dug up all the Columbines I planted last spring. Argh!
Provided 30 meals for 5 people.
Went for walks five out of the last five days!
Missed blogging and visiting all of my favorite blogs! So nice to be back:)
