Like A Dang Chicken With It's Head Chopped Off

I've suddenly found myself with very little time and lots of stuff that needs to be done. Between the pet fish dying this morning :-(
and celebrating the birth of the one that was in this tummy in 2002...

today...and celebrating the birth of the one that was in this tummy in 2004...


next week, I'm throwing a slip 'n slide birthday party for them both tomorrow (and it's raining right now!), working, trying to finish the family room we just painted, re-carpeted, etc...and planning in my head what I need to pack for my trip down to SoCal. I leave on my jet plane Thursday morning and I imagine it will be with a suitcase half full of wrinkly washed clothes and half full of wrinkly dirty clothes...because the laundry situation right now is just plain wrecked!

Off to do a little bowling and eating some birthday cake now and I imagine that I'll not be back to the computer much this week, so I'll announce the Cool Gym Towel winners next week and hopefully get around to Q & A with moi sometime soon.

In the meantime, if I survive the next 36 hours, I'm home free with some time alone with this girl...
 ...who has been my friend for 26 years...

I haven't been on a vacation on my own in forever...and this mama is in love with the idea...and heartsick at the same time.
