Consider Me Celebrated, oh and BUSY!

Within a 30 day period we have had the following reasons to celebrate:

  • Mom #2's birthday
  • Twin Grand Baby Girls were born
  • Our Doggy's birthday (he's family, you know)
  • My sister's birthday
  • Today's my birthday
  • Next week is my Dad's birthday
Sooooooo last week we had a Big Backyard Birthday Barbecue and EVERYONE was here.

Every since my parents' divorce, my Dad has been making himself super scarce. He'll drop by and pick up Baby Boy to take him to get a haircut or to do other miscellaneous guy stuff (Does anyone actually know what guys do when they're together?) but he never sticks around.

Well he actually got here early and barbecued all the yummy ribs and chicken wings, and then stayed around and ate and visited with us. I mean this may go down in Dos Mamacitas family history. We had so much food that we had to eat, take a break, and then eat some more. ;-)

My sister brought over a friend whom I had never met before. I am really not good with strangers . . . as a general rule . . . I don't speak to strangers. I started out thoroughly irritated, but she was so down to earth and so much fun that she fit right in with my loud and crazy family. So I was actually able to make a new friend. That makes one. Score!

Anyway, I'm all celebrated out! I've made enough congratulatory phone calls and slopped enough sugar to last a lifetime. It was great fun while it lasted, but I'm all celebrated out.

Now I'm settling in for a long weekend of planning, planning, and more planning. We're going to start our school year on Tuesday . . . and I do have all my stuff . . . well most of my stuff (I'm trying to sneak in some extra stuff) . . . but I'm an anal retentive scheduler and I've still got a few loose ends to tie up. More details to follow.

Also . . I've recently scored a great work-from-home job. Although I hate that I need to work, I am so very happy that it is a gig that can be done from home in my pj's early in the morning before Baby Boy and I get started on our schoolwork. Thank goodness for small favors! ;-)

TTFN! Have a great holiday weekend!

Until next time . . .

Hope you have the most fabulous birthday permitted by law!!!

What DO guys do when they're together? My hubby and son play video games. It sounds incredibly boring to me. LOL

You have had a wonderful summer, and I hope all this joyful momentum carries you right into a awesome autumn!

I had heard that the library used to offer it for free, but it never happened here. And you know how cheap I am... so I found it on E-bay for a third of the price.

Happy Holiday!

Happy bdays to everyone.

I am hyperventilating on your behalf looking at that curriculum line up. Chemistry, econ and pre-calc, oh my!
