Oh, not really?
So sorry for my absence. My mom has been here for a week now, helping me out and making life so much easier and I haven't taken the time to blog which I really missed. Weird how you can depend on something so simple to get you through your day.
*Last Friday my mom and I returned from our errands to find a plate of yumminess and a jar of homemade goodness gracing my front door. The card that accompanied it said something like "we think you're great, welcome to our neck of the woods!" How great is that? Made me smile and think, once again, how grateful I am for the fantastic friends that I have. (More on that to come later this week!) This one and that one are to blame for their generosity and kind deed. I'm hoping they feel like joining me for lunch at my place on Thursday...
*I finally got bedding for my room thanks to the keen eye of my mom and it makes me so happy. Every time I walk into my room I smile and praise the bargain bin at Bed, Bath & Beyond for getting my room out of it's ghetto slump. Now I just need furniture.
*This weekend I am heading off for my annual Lfest Retreat (more to come on that) which is where me and three of the greatest women on the planet spend a weekend together doing what we do best-laughing, crying, sleeping, eating and loving every minute of it. I CANNOT WAIT. Nothing rejuvenates my soul more than time with these women. Well, them and cheesecake.
*Next weekend, my oldest friend Kelly is coming to visit and I CANNOT WAIT FOR THAT EITHER. Kelly is the type of friend that everyone should have. She is loyal, compassionate, sincere, genuine, honest, hysterical and lovely in every way. I have known her since I was three (can you believe that?) and she has been there for every step of my life. She also has a memory like an iron vice and she constantly cracks me up by remembering every word I've ever said and every outfit I ever wore. It's kind of freaky, really, but I love her TO DEATH. Can't wait.
*I called home awhile ago (Lindsay & I are doing time at PHS) and my mom told me that Sienna came to her while playing, told her she needed to go potty, and then went in and PEED and POOPED on the TOILET. Oh yeah people, I've got a potty training rock star on my hands! And oddly enough, I haven't even really started potty training her. Who knew Elmo panties could work such magic?
That about covers it. I think I'll spend the rest of the week highlighting my amazing friends which should make for some interesting reading.
