I am tired. Dog tired. Hubby and I decided to skip even purchasing cards for each other this year for Valentine's because the truth of the situation is that neither of us needs another thing to worry about at this time.
However, our children will be spoiled yet again for a holiday. And, contrary to assumptions, I do not like to shop. So, this weekend really wasn't the best weekend to take care of the Valentine shopping. Next year I think I will just do it the week after Christmas and be done.
Work is busy....and fantastic (most days!). My little business was featured on another major event blog this week and I couldn't be more proud. I have also had the honor of being placed on the preferred vendor list at a very special place in Highlands, NC. While this does not mean I will be called on every weekend by brides booking this venue, it is an honor to be on such a list for a location so prestigious and esteemed in customer service. Typically it takes several weddings to be placed on this event and I did it with one! Attention to detail and customer service is paramount in this industry!
Today we went to a memorial service for the father of an old friend of mine. As far as memorials go, it was the best one I have ever been to and probably very much similar to something I would like held for myself when I pass on. After this memorial we came home and Hubby & I were playing with Macho Man. He made one of those baby faces that looked like an old man. To which I said, "you are going to be a cute old man one day"......and then I got a little sad, because I realized that that will be a phase in my baby's life that he and I won't share. I won't be around (more than likely) to see him as a cute old man. As a parent you try to never think of NOT being there for your child, no matter what their age.
The school year is rapidly coming to an end and while this makes me a little sad since Birdie will be at "big" school next year with Lovebug, I have NEVER been so ready for summer to get here. I look forward to some lazy days hanging out with all my little people.
Hubby is still enjoying his job....as am I and the Lovely Ladies.
Now to go make some pineapple and bacon cupcakes for treats for the neighbors. I found a recipe that I must try and I figure....who doesn't like bacon!?!!
