The Great Debate

Today is my cousin's bridal shower. It is also my stepdaughter's birthday party. How do you choose? My solution was to go to neither and send a nice card to both, but since the birthday party is being hosted at my apt that just doesn't sound like it will work.

So I sent a card to my cousin and will be kicking everyone out of my apt as quickly as possible.

Little Sprout is teething, which means she doesn't sleep very well and her nose is running like crazy. Add to that the fact that Mr. Barefoot was gone last night, and I didn't get to go to sleep until 4 am.

Not that I am complaining, really. Just a report.

This week is going to be crazy-busy. I work tonight, then 3 hours in the middle of the day tomorrow, then tomorrow night. Tuesday I have a dr. appt. Wed is the dreaded piano/AWANA day. Thursday I work during the day again, and then Friday and Saturday I work the overnights again. Next Sunday I am having a little BBQ for my folks, since their birthdays are this week (well, Mom's was last Friday, but my schedule has been a little busy). At some point I have to figure out how to get my Grandmothers here for the BBQ.

Big Sprout is playing video games today. She usually doesn't, so I don't mind when she does. I think she usually goes about 2 months in between times of playing video games. Then she will play them pretty steady for a day or two before quitting for another couple of months.

See? Life is pretty boring right now.

Good call on the party/shower dilemma. Happy Birthday to the folks. And sorry about not much sleep last night. Hope you get some good rest tonight!

Wow.... I don't think that sounds boring. I think you sound busy. I also think you made a good call on the party vs. shower. Best of luck with the Birthday BBQ later this week. I hope LS gets those teeth all the way in soon so she can stop being so miserable. And, glad to hear that BS is rather peacefully entertaining herself for a couple of days while you have so much going on.

I hope you find a bit of rest in all the busy-ness!!

Hope the party was a success and you are guilt free concerning the bridal shower. The birthday comes first in my book.. :)
