Hello there!!! Can you tell my life as been wacky crazy lately? My posting has dwindled to about 1.5 per week,but right now thats the best I can do. There has just been sooo much on my plate lately and there is no immediate end in sight.
My show opened to lovely reviews (thank you Petula for the congratulations). I go back tonight,and am ever-so thankful for the days off I have had. I was able to clean house(a monumental task),catch up on the mountains of laundry(the dryer is going as I type),and celebrate a special birthday!!!
This is what 4 looks like.
We celebrated quietly with just the fam. Daddy and the Little Flower Blossom made A strawberry cake(while mommy slept in). We opened presents and played with them on and off during the day. Grammy sent money ,so off to Target we went to choose one more special present. My little petal loved this and poured over all the toys before settling on a "real" kitty cat that purrs,meows and even "makes bread". Kirsty kitty(she named it,not me) is her new sleeping buddy.I felt guilty for not planning a party,and had originally thought I would plan one for in a couple of weeks,but our day was so special ending with dinner at our fave resteraunt El Fenix and my baby later falling asleep in my arms. Did I mention we BOTH fell asleep? I am considering letting myself off the hook till next year (for a birthday party),anyone have any thoughts on that ? Am I cheating her out of a party? Truthfully I had such a good time being with her rather than hostessing with other energy-filled younge ones.
One special bright spot among the last 2 weeks was recieving this GORGEOUS package from the magical EB,of BE DREAM PLAY ,it came the day of my loss of Elvis,and I decided to wait to open it.The next day I decided I needed some fun,so my little one and I had a little EB party!Can you believe how lovely the wrapping is ,it even had pink bubble wrap!
Here is the beautiful contents. An Eb original,made with her own photography as little mosaics.A unique and wonderful heart neclace that I wore to my little ones Val-day party(alas I forgot to snap pics).The final goodie included was some delicious cinnamon scented oil,that I have already used up!Thats how good it was!
Thank you beautiful ,talented EB if you have not yet visited her site ,go quick!
Another major responsibility I took on was for my oldest babys school fund-raiser. I ,foolishly ,agreed to solicit companys for donations for the auction. This is NOT where my talents lie. My clerical organization is not conducive to this type of volunteer work. I persevere to fulfill my obligation,and until I am finished with this,I will continue to post spottily. I still can't believe I said yes to this. I have always volunteered for school needs,but in spots where I can truly make a difference.I directed 3 school talent shows (one ,2 weeks before I gave birth!),filed papers for teachers,and conducted various acting workshops.I just hope I don't drop the ball on this because I am unable to read my own notes!
...and just as I was cursing my inability to say no,this came.A special Vertigo Valentine from our story book heroine Vanessa.
In the midst of the excitement last week,I bought myself a val-prez' . A little something to put the Jungle in the Dream Pagoda! Leopard ballerina flats.
To top it all off on Monday, I have been ask to present at a local awards ceremony hosted by Ugly Betty's Michael Urie!
What shall I wear? I was considering this bronze number I wore on New Years Eve,thoughts,suggestions?
