This week is going by so fast and I still have so much to do before the end of the year, so I’m blogging instead. I still want to write about our trip and Christmas, but there is too much to write and I just don’t have the time to devote to it. Besides, there is stuff going on right now that I want to write about instead.
For one thing, my friend Amy is in town for a few days. She got in town lastnight and we got together with Lisa (the one who bumped me into hubby on the dance floor many years ago) who was celebrating her birthday. We all went to eat at Manny’s, one of the most yummy mexican places in KC. Somebody let it slip that Lisa was having a birthday, so she got a free dessert and this wonderful sombrero to remember the evening by.
Fortunately for me (not so much for her) Amy just happens to be here the day that I have no baby-sitter for Zach so she is staying at the house with him today. His baby-sitter is on vacation so my sister watched him Tuesday and Wednesday and hubby is off on Friday so he can watch him, but I was kinda stuck today. I’m so glad that she was willing to keep him. Otherwise he would be here at work with me and I would get nothing done at all.
I am looking forward to spending some time visiting with Amy too. Since she lives so damn far away, I only get to see her a couple of times a year when she comes back to visit her family. Lisa and I are trying really hard to convince her to move back, but she seems to have her mind set on California as her next home. Guess we’ll see what happens.
Oh yeah, somehow, on top of all the other stuff I need to do I managed to let myself get
roped into convinced to throw a New Year’s Eve party. My sister wanted to have a little get-together, but her house is too small to have very many people over so she decided that we needed to have it at my house instead. It sounded like a great idea at first, but now that it is getting closer I’m not so sure. I still need to clean my house, plan out food and drinks, buy food and drinks, and mentally prepare myself to have a bunch of people over. I’m sure we’ll all have a good time, but it’s only two days away now, and I’m not even close to being ready.
I’m pretty sure that if I could just get some sleep everything would be better, but between my stuffy nose and cough and Zach’s stuffy nose and cough I’m up most of the night. I’m almost ready to hand Zach off to my mom just for one night so I can get some good solid sleep but I worry about him waking up and wanting to nurse and me not being there. Perhaps one of these days I’ll get gutsy and do it…when I’m tired enough.
I suppose I should get back to work before I babble on any more. It’s just so hard to work when you don’t want to!
