Well, the end of the week, at least..
The week was filled, mostly, of dealing with sick kids; i.e. a lot of Tylenol and nose-wiping... Lysol-ing, Clorox wipes, and hand washing, then sanitizing.. banish this cold!!
A "pooping in the tub" incident that led to a kitchen sink bath, so I could get her clean, and then, scrub the tub...
We are in soooo much trouble... Peyton discovered the power button on the TV. She has learned to respect the "no-no", but gives us her "no-no" finger (that's her little finger waving "no-no" at us..) in response. We are missing our very short-lived Sony that had the power button ON TOP of the TV.. what a novel idea!
Saturday we went to see the hotel. Many things are taking place down there.. they have the jacuzzi tubs all tiled (that will be my room.. either one ;), they both work for me!), the doors are mostly hung, the fireplace is almost all rocked, the doors are mostly hung... and here's where the girls are: in the pool area. They got the cement all poured (no more gravel!) and stamped. The girls call the hot tub "the hot pool"..
And today... LET THE WEEK OF BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS BEGIN!!
We went to Mom & Dad's for a delicious "Birthday Dinner" followed by this cake, expertly decorated by my sweet girls..
My silly mom..
I was telling her about my new wool pea coat, a self-purchased birthday gift :).. I was very proud of the deal I got.
"Where'd you get it from?"
"Victoria's Secret.. they had them on clearance for $49.99 and I got a $10.00 off coupon for my birthday.."
Thinking it was really a Martin Luther King Jr. sale.. she says, "Oh, so are they throwing a parade for your birthday too? Ha Ha Ha..." she laughs.
"No, seriously, I got a coupon for my birthday."
"You mean it wasn't a sale?"
"No.. do you think that I think the world revolves around me? That I think this whole Tuesday's events are really in honor of my birthday? That they are inagurating a new president just because it's my birthday?.. and, oh, that they will be having a ball because of my birthday too?"
We were both laughing pretty hard at this point.. we always kid like that..
Love my mom!
Will enjoy a breakfast with just some of my favorite family members tomorrow.. hope to enjoy a birthday dinner with my sweet hubby on my birthday.. that is if he isn't totally burned-out from un-loading and trying to find a home for 3 semis full of furniture for the hotel.. it's also crunch time for ordering all of the other goods..
I want to have an evening out with all of my buddies (who can or want to come) for my birthday.. I am thinking Friday.. so kiddos won't have school the next day.. any suggestions?
