Good Morning Everybody!!!
Sorry, I've been out of touch this week! Have you ever had the feeling that your running 90 mph and you look back at what you've accomplished and you're still behind? Amazing! LOL! Why am I laughing? :)
You know this week (and it's still this week...two more days to try to shove as much as I can into these two days!) was one of those weeks where you know you either have good health or it's simply not time for you to go to Glory yet! If I haven't had a heart attack yet, folks, it's not going to happen! LOL! Preparing to go out of town for a week both at my job and home has made the normal mix of craziness that much more exciting! Ellie, my little mini dachshund, had three breast cancers removed, then trying to create/design two additional projects for G45 that are just for fun and one other for a blog hop that's due on the 16th when I'm in Chicago, haircut, packing, air reservations, paying bills, etc. it's been the week from hell! I'm not complaining really, I know we are all so busy! Somehow just writing it makes me feel better! HAHAHAHA!
In this non-stop world of chaos, I completely forgot about my sister's birthday! It was the big one too! You can try to figure out which one it was, she'd kill me if I announced it to the world! Like I said earlier, I'm not ready to die yet! Anyway, I was even gently reminded by my mother that it was Kim's birthday! The day after, my mom asked if I had talked to Kim and I said, No, why? She once again said, it was your sister's birthday yesterday, remember? I was driving to work and had to pull off the road and beat myself over the head! I'm the best about remembering birthdays! Especially, when your sister turns 50! Oops, did I say that out loud! I felt horrible! Still feel horrible! That's the cool thing about family though, they understand and she did! God bless her! I called immediately from work and my friend Marsha and I croaked the Happy Birthday Song to her!
Just a quick note about my sis, she's a beautiful, beautiful person inside and out! Loving, kind, generous, caring, mother to Emily, Gibson, Tucker, Molly, Liya, and Little Finny and a wonderful wife to her husband Truett and incredible sister and daughter! I'm so proud of her and all of her accomplishments!
Happy Birthday Kimmie! I love you!
