Okay, so yesterday was a complete bust. Nothing accomplished unless you count keeping my eyes opened. I was way too tired from getting only 2 hours sleep the night before to do anything. However last night was better sleep wise so today should be much more productive.
I have to clean the house, assemble 3 Halloween craft projects and make some Halloween inspired treats for the grandson to enjoy this weekend. His soccer game is tomorrow at 9 which DH and I will attend. Afterwards he is all ours until after dinner on Sunday. Some of this weekend's happenings will be: brunch with the grandson, checking out the Halloween goodies at Michaels (the grandson loves the little spooky village displays), pumpkin & scarecrow shopping at the Farmers Market, decorating the house Halloween style and assembling our haunted yard display, spooky movie with popcorn of course, playing with assorted toys, kid friendly Halloween crafts and dinner at Olive Garden (I'll be using one of my birthday gift cards) before dropping him off to his dad Sunday night. Looking forward to having LOTS of FUN with the little guy! In the meantime I best get busy!
Have a great day and weekend Sparkies!!

I had a nice quiet birthday weekend. Stayed in my jammies and fuzzy slippers. I haven't done that since I was a teenager. It was so relaxing, no stress, no drama. I watched several favorite DVDs, reminisced over old photo albums, gave myself a facial, mani & pedi, called a friend or two, paid my furbabies some much needed extra attention, caught up on some emails, letters, and even with some Sparkfriends as well as pinned to my heart's content on PINTEREST. And I enjoyed every minute!
NOW, it's back to reality! I have a pretty full week ahead. Halloween craft projects that need starting, the last of the hallway wallpaper will be coming down (Hallelujah), need to order the grandson's Halloween costume (Batman) as well as some winter clothing for me, dropping off some books I no longer have use for to the local library and clothing to the Share House, setting up our haunted yard display as well as decorating the house SPOOKY STYLE, taking our dog in to get her stitches and Elizabethan collar removed for the second time (first time didn't take), attending our grandson's soccer game on Saturday, and of course the piece de la resistance - spending all day Saturday through all day Sunday with the grandson while his mom is out of town. A movie of his choice, picking out pumpkins and scarecrows at the Farmers Market, making Halloween treats as well as a couple kid-friendly Halloween crafts and some spooky DVDS are on the agenda. Can't wait!
Have a great week Sparkies!

Well first off I survived my birthday dinner the other night with the daughter, husband and grandson. The daughter threw out a few zingers but no major disturbances so I count myself fortunate. After some more Halloween shopping (can't have enough ghouls and goblins) we had a nice dinner at our favorite Japanese Steak House. I had the Hibachi Chicken & Shrimp and enjoyed every bite. YUM! Afterwards we went to Starbucks for coffee (vanilla milk for the grandson) and I brought along the cake that DH made for me (chocolate with vanilla frosting) and some sprinkles so our grandson could take part in decorating it.
We were all pretty full from dinner so we each just had a small piece than split the remainder. The daughter took home half for her and her son to enjoy later. DH and I took home the other half. I had one small piece yesterday with lunch and will have the last piece today with a candle in it to celebrate my actual B-day today. DH happily has eaten the rest.
My daughter gave me a card, and my grandson made one for me along with a picture of a really big fish in the ocean. It is now displayed on my refrigerator. He also gave me a small plastic Snoopy figure with candy inside. And of course like a typical 5 year old he asked to have the candy. DH gave me 3 roses, a card and gift card to Michaels, one of my favorite stores. I could actually live there if they would let me and be quite happy. I also have received cards and/ or gifts from my nieces, sister in laws and cousin along with phone calls from friends. So all in all I can't complain, it has been nice. As for today I am just doing whatever I want. No stress or drama allowed, just enjoying my 54th birthday. I chose not to go out to dinner again tonight so will be eating in with the DH. Roast chicken, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob along with salad is the plan. And of course my last sliver of cake to last me another year.
