If we were having coffee, it would be more of the same…so busy…so much to do…so tired! It seems that’s the story of my life these days.

Anderson’s birthday trip was quite a success! They didn’t have to pay the extra person rate for me because the reservation was for four and they didn’t count Spencer because he’s under three. I was happy about that because I don’t like to cause anyone to spend on me!

My youngest daughter was supposed to be up here from California yesterday but by the time they got the cars loaded and everything ready to go, it was almost 3 PM and it’s about a ten to eleven hour drive so they wisely chose to stay there for one more day. They are finally on their way now. I was hoping they got an early start but not so much…they didn’t leave til 11 AM. At least they will be here before midnight. I have the key to the house so I will need to go meet them with the key. I will actually go early because the place smells like paint and I want to air it out a little bit before they arrive. I am also taking them a couple of boxes with essentials like paper towels, toilet paper, soap, etc., an air mattress (their furniture doesn’t arrive til later in the week), and a few groceries. So I will go early and hang out til they get in. I’m excited to have them here! Let’s see if I can relax today until they arrive!

The baby shower I am giving for my daughter-in-law is next Saturday. Yesterday, I sent out reminder emails to the people we hadn’t heard from as there was only one person that had replied! Within minutes I heard back from everyone but one. All are coming! We’ll see if that last lady replies. So that’s the next thing on the agenda…baby shower preparations then the drive up north on Friday afternoon.

I’m trying to get some reading done but it seems that by the time I get to the reading, I’m so tired that I fall asleep within just minutes. 😦  Hopefully once the shower is over with, I can get more reading done. I am way, way, way behind. I was going to participate in A to Z this year but I’m having second thoughts. I’m just not feeling like I need to put myself through it. I will probably still post everyday but I’m not doing a theme of any kind.

Other than some complaint about a Jamberry party on Facebook that is going nowhere…no one participating and the hostess remains pretty uninvolved…I think that’s about all on this end. I was so busy and distracted this week that I forgot to post a Weekly Smile. I will try to get one of those up tomorrow! Hhm. Gotta find something smile-worthy to share!

That’s it for this coffee share post. I’m actually off to fix another cup. I’ve been up since before 5 and it is just after noon so I need some coffee if I’m going to stay awake until Miss Susie arrives in another nine hours!  See you next time!

[This is another story that shows how Mother Nature steps in to slow us down. This happened about three years ago.]

Susie was doubled over crossing her legs in that “I gotta go pee!” dance and inhaling shrieks of laughter. Not sure whether to be mad at her for laughing at me or join her in her obvious enjoyment of the moment, I paused long enough for her to be able to mutter, “I’m not laughing at you,” then as she squirmed for the bathroom, she added, “Mommie, really I’m not. Wait. Wait,” and she closed the bathroom door. Minutes later, she came out of the bathroom, took one look at me and started convulsing with laughter once again. “I’m not, really mommy, I’m not laughing at you. I’m laughing at the situation!” That’s when I couldn’t hold it in any longer and we both writhed with laughter. (more…)
