The next few days are going to be busy, and looking at my schedule I just hope that I have the energy to keep up. Even though I'm feeling a tinged overwhelmed by my calendar, I am excited about the opportunities and adventures that the next few days will bring. I can hardly wait to see how the coming week unfolds!
Today I'm heading up to my Mom's
to prepare for tomorrow's birthday celebration. I have ordered all of
the food (thank goodness for the internet, it makes party planning so
much easier!) Tomorrow afternoon Robby and I are going to clean her
house for the party. It's funny. Robby laments and whines whenever I ask
him to clean at home, but he is excited about going to cleaning his
Nana's house for the party.
When my niece and nephews come home
from school I'm going to surprise them by taking everybody to the Glow
Party at Skyzone. Robby loves playing with his cousins but he doesn't
see them often. On the rare occasions when they can get together I like
to go into "SuperMom/ SuperAunt mode" by planning an adventure.
morning Scott and I will pick up all of the food and finish the
decorations for the party. I'm hoping that my Mom has a good time, can
feel relaxed and enjoy everybody coming together to celebrate her. I
know that she does not relish being the center of attention, but
everybody deserves to be doted upon from time to time.
we're going to come home so that we can get ready for Timmy's birthday
on Monday. I can't believe that my little Hamlet is going to be three!
My goodness the time has flown by so quickly, but I suppose that is the
topic for another blog (probably on Monday.)
Wednesday I will be in DC, lobbying Capitol Hill with the Amputee
Coalition for the needs of the amputee community. I'm looking forward
about speaking with staffers and legislators about the issues impacting
my friends. Even though I'm excited about going to Capitol Hill, right
now I'm just trying to focus on my Mom's party. Once I get that done, I
can concentrate on making Timmy's day special. One day at a time and
hopefully I'll be able to fly through the coming week unscathed and with
