Catch Up

Okay, I am giving in and going to the clinic today. I haven't been feeling well for quite a while and when the hubs woke me up this morning to say I kept him awake with my snoring and coughing, I decide that was it. I offered to sleep in another room but he, being sweet, said "no, it doesn't bother me too much and I would rather have you next me". Can you say Awwww...?

My girl is coming to visit tomorrow!!! She is flying in for work and thought it would be nice to come early enough to celebrate Lance's birthday. He doesn't turn 24 until December, but it will wonderful to have them both together. Shhhhh...don't tell her, but we will celebrate her birthday too, it is before Lance's. I am sad that our other daughter is unable to come, but she is almost finished with school and needs to keep up the work. Graduation is only a few months away!

I am so excited!!! I was hired to host a doctor's grand opening open house. It has been so long since I put on a party, and even though it is not an "official" party, I will be planning and putting together the refreshments and decorating the tables. Naturally my mind is going crazy with ideas, the problem is he wants it low keyed and classic. I love to take themes and run with them! But I will have to tone down the imagination and make it very nice and business like. It is still nice to be doing this for pay once again.

Last week we didn't go to our small group because we had a wedding to attend. The wedding was very nice and we got to visit with my mother's family. It has been so long since we have seen them and I realized how much I missed them. I am going to have to take the initiative to go visit more often. Anyway, we are going to small group tonight, I find it so amazing that we already have formed some good relationships with these people. We have only been attending a short time.

Well I need to go dry my hair and get Lance ready for his staff person. Then off to the clinic.

I hate to feel sick--hope you are soon back to full steam.

Cudos on hosting the party--sounds like sort of a big deal! Have fun doing it.

I hope you are feeling better and that the birthday party will be filled with fun. Wow.. what a great opportunity for you to host a party with PAY. Hopefully you can sneak a few photo's to share with us peepers. :-)

I hope you get some relief from your symptoms. You'll need to be healthy and rested for that party-planning! (This is a side to you that you've kept hidden from your blogging friends - at least those like me who are newer to the scene....) I hear your excitement and congratulate you on your skills and this opportunity.

Enjoy the early family birthday celebrations, too. (I have a Christmas birthday myself - and celebrating apart from Christmas sounds nice, actually!)
