This weekend is my daughter's 5th birthday (Friday), so my parents are driving up from Florida to be with us. Yay! I love having them, even though our house starts feeling pretty small sometimes when we have guests.
It's also my 8yo son's Pinewood Derby all day Saturday. I'm glad the grandparents will get to experience that event -- it's always a lot of fun. The 5yo has Kindergarten testing that same morning -- luckily it's at the same place! -- at 8:30 am.
And THEN, we're having an actual party for the birthday girl on Sunday. Remind me to order a cake....!
It's going to be a whirlwind! I haven't even cleaned a single surface in my house in preparation. !!!! Aaaack!
I'm so sick of being stupid busy at work. I don't even have time to be blogging here but just feel like I want to vent. I set up my days with no time in between tasks, and hope to get all of MY priorities finished -- and every day, I get two or three additional requests that apparently have higher rank. So then I feel behind every day.
I KNOW it's supposed to come off slowly but it sure does feel like a long road ahead to get where I want to be. I was thinking this morning, "Okay, so next week I should be at 145... and the week after that, 144..." and it seems like FOREVER until I'll even see the 130s. Sigh.
Still, I'm proud of myself for the work I did last week.
