Do you ever really feel your age?

Well as it's become very apparent to me, I'm growing up.  I think age is a state of mind, but realizing that your "baby" is turning 8 in less then a couple hours does tend to make one very aware of their age.  8 years ago right now, I was being prepped for a C-section.  My labor was induced and it did not progress in a timely manner, so I had to have the baby "by force" if you will.  So I have a special day planned for tomorrow.  I am going to get up, go get Rory his favorite breakfast and take him to school.  I am going to pick up cupcakes for the kids in his class and drop them off.  When he's out of school, we are going to do whatever he'd like to do.  I am making  him hamburgers for dinner and then we are going to open his gifts and have cake.  I know he's going to have a great day!!  I'm so excited for him!

My top 10 things I love about my son...
1. His smile
2. His crazy stories, that only make sense to him
3. His courage
4. His giant heart, he loves everyone
5. He wants to be anything he sees on TV when he grows up
6. His laugh
7. His desire to be mature beyond his years
8. He's gentle, a giant but gentle
9. His love for music
10. His love for kitties!

Post Halloween, Pre Holiday Chit Chat

Can you believe that it's November already?  Where did this year go?  So Halloween was yesterday and was it just me or was this year kind of stressful?  We had a couple of really busy days at work and believe me, I'm not complaining we needed to make that money but sheesh I was over Halloween about 2 weeks ago!  Now, grant it I work every Halloween and that makes things really busy, that's no surprise.  I worked yesterday and came home to take Rory out to Trick or Treat.  We spent about an hour out getting candy.  Then we came home to have cake and presents with Marina.  Then I got into the shower, washed all the crap off of me and crawled in bed.  I did stay up a little and watch TV but then passed out.  I finally got some good sleep.  I got up this morning to clean up the house and get a jump on laundry.  It was so nice to get ready for work and not have to dress up or find a costume to put on! 

So we're having a birthday party for Marina and Rory, this coming Sunday.  We have asked everyone to dress up, it's great to have one last costume party!  We've invited family and friends, I do have a SIL that very pregnant, she was due yesterday.  I have a feeling she'll go into labor on Saturday night or Sunday.  I'm fine with that, I just can't wait to see what kind of baby they have!!  They've chose not to know.  How very exciting!!  I already bought the plates, napkins and stuff we need for the party.  We also left our decorations out and are going to put the dead body back on the lawn to scare our guests!

So I guess all that's left is to buy the food and get the rest of the house ready.  We're going to BBQ and have finger food.  I am going to order a cake, so I don't have to worry about making it.  Not to mention the kids love the cakes that we always order.  I'll be sure to post plenty of pics.

First thing first.

I have to warn you, I'm new to this.  I love to write but it's all been with a pen and paper before now.  This should be a new experience for all of us!  I'm sure there will be days that I rant and days that I share too much., but that's what this is for. 

Today, I had to work.  The morning went so slow but the afternoon was busy and went really fast.  I did a little shopping and ordered something for my son's birthday.  I came home to dinner with the hubby and two sons.  The daughter is at a concert with her friend K.  I cleaned off part of my desk and updated my address book.  I'm going to have to find an easier way to store information.  My address book is handwritten in a little Hello Kitty book that Crystal gave to me.

I'm not sure what else to say right now, so I'll sign off.
