W I P (works in progress)......the blog, and me....
It's a quieter morning, no grands, no client work....the deadline work got done yesterday (yes of all days). Spillover from Wednesday -- didn't do client work as grand's sitter called in. Of course I had to help out....time for Plan B.
Only Plan B wasn't such a good plan after all. It had no room for Murphy's Law who decided to visit me on my Birthday, of all things. Oh, I thought rising at 3:30a for exercise to a dvd (Me, first) and a trip downtown to retrieve client docs was solid and accommodating. It was anything but, and instead was a bumpy road, stressful kind of day, and no way to spend a birthday. But Baby Alexandra came all dressed in lace finery in Grandma's favorite color, and when Arden arrived, the first thing after she said Happy Birthday, was, Grandma, what are we going to do that is special for your birthday today? Ahem. Recalculate? Well, I did try! Between problem solving business calls, I'd managed a mini party, with cake and candle, and Arden and Grandpa sang Happy Birthday!
It was a sweet, sweet moment.....but then....nothing. More business problem solving....and so the day went. I ended up keeping Arden longer to take her to the town pool, so we could make it special for her, which makes it special for me.
Finally kicked my feet up at 9:30p to finish tracking foods for the day, when I saw all the BD wishes that had poured in over the day. Wow! Such a special moment! Felt like a party! I was so touched by this.
A good night's rest and a new day! GOLD!
Walk is done, healthy meals are planned....time to dig into my own business recordkeeping so that I can get my books over to the tax accountant. Too ridiculous. I guess it is true, the shoemaker's kid does go shoeless, lol. Sorta says it all. I am so busy helping others, we are last on the list...."kid" implies may be an "I," but it is definitely a "we" for us because DH can't escape it, poor guy. But DH gave me a beautiful BD card that says he loves me, and I am the greatest wife, friend and woman EVER....so I guess he can deal with it / me, lol.
Wowed by all the birthday wishes from so many! It made my day special!
Got the Gold yesterday!
Stayed away from cake frosting and my piece was very mini! Yay!
Go for the Gold!
Have an awesome day!
