Although it was difficult, I had a successful “Take the day off Birthday.” I watched a movie on Crackle (Haven’t heard of it? You can watch free television shows and movies – similar to Hula) and I laid down. Then I laid down and laid down. LOL… that about sums up my day. RP and the children gave me cards and even though Amareah (my middle daughter) spent the weekend with her day – along with her two siblings – she still remembered it was my birthday when I picked her up from school yesterday. So sweet.
“She did?” Of course I sounded puzzled. “How did she know it’s my birthday?”
“I told her,” Amareah said. Such a sweet 5-year-old girl. The other two ages 6 and 3 forgot and, of course, my sweet baby girl (19-year-old Amber) called to wish her mother a happy birthday. She gave me my gift (LOTION/skin stuff! Woohooo!) when we visited her last weekend.
And I received so many well wishes via my comments here and on Facebook; that really made me feel good. Thank you to everyone who took the time to tell me Happy Birthday… I really appreciate it.
On the bad side? 1) It’s not my birthday today so back to work! LOL… not necessarily bad, I guess. 2) I took Anna to the ENT today and she has to get tubes in her ears. She’s had about eight ear infections this year alone so given her history and her hearing is mildly effected, the doctor recommends the tubes, which he let me put off last time to see if anything changed with her.
I’m a little bothered by it, but I think it’s the best thing for her at this point. And Amber hasn’t been feeling that great so I feel bad about that as well. I don’t like when my babies are sick and I can’t fix it. It’s natural, I know, but it’s still a little worrisome.
In other news: I’m back on the get-organized track in the office. It was stalled a little when I won the fabulous storage bins from StacksAndStacks. Now, I have a desk I’d like to get rid of. The office contained three desks and now with the organizational system I don’t need/want it. I have it listed on the Atlanta Craigslist for $20. If you know of anyone in the area that can use it for something just tell them to get in touch with me. I’ll even taken $5 for it (that’s the special deep discount blog deal!).
A lot of stuff: I need to get back on the health and weight loss journal bandwagon ‘cause I’ve gained a little weight back (of the 60 pounds that I’ve lost). I’m a bit disappointed, but I have no one to blame but myself. Well, I can blame RP ‘cause he likes to eat whatever whenever so… okay, no, I can’t blame anyone. LOL… I’ve been lazy and undisciplined and now my clothes are tight – or not fitting! – and that’s so unacceptable. Also, on the health front, I haven’t been feeling that great as of late so I’d really like to get to the doctor sometime soon and discuss what’s going on.
Well, I think you’re all caught up. I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, but I have to go and clean up in the office some more (I can’t wait to do the final reveal to you), put a load of laundry in and wash some dishes. Then I’m sure by the time I get all of that finished it’ll be time for the kids to get ready for bed.
I hope your week is going well so far. Leave me a comment and let me know what you have going on.
