Birthday Week


INSANE! That's the one word that will sum up this week for me.

It's "Birthday Week" at my house, which means that three out of the five people in my little family have birthdays back-to-back. My boys are the 4th and the 6th and mine is the 8th. Needless to say, all I want for my birthday is to RELAX. I want to get totally wasted on a big 'ol bag of chocolates with caramel in the middle.





So to spice up my life, I threw in a baby shower on the 7th at my place, and I've got to have THREE aprons in the mail by Monday.











Sweet.















As if that weren't enough, my children's school has decided to throw together all of the year-end activities into ONE WEEK! We've had school musicals, a Zoo trip on Thursday, Field Day on Friday, and a BBQ next week.

That's it! When are they going to get on with this whole "cloning" thing, anyway? I could sure use another one of myself.



Thank goodness for humor, eh?! It's my drug.

Speaking of funny, I couldn't NOT share this card with you - it's too great. My brother sent this to me the other day and I couldn't stop laughing.

(On the inside) "Now go out there and show 'em what you've got."

If this isn't motivating, I don't know what is.

Back to work...

Why oh why do they try to kill us mothers off like this?! Don't they want us around to help next year? You have all my sympathies! I know exactly how you feel! I happily don't have the birthydays to deal with although I haven't started my apron and I am in charge of enrichment tonight! Aaaaah! That which doesn't kill us right? Good luck! Your apron looks like it is going to be soooo cute! And love the shower invite!
