Good morning! Here is what my hair usually looks like (for those who have been asking how THAT big change is going):
Today is my Benjamin's 18th birthday. The years truly take wings. It is a blessing to be his mother. I have a pic of when he first opened the door, but to preserve our relationship, I opted not to show it! I choose life. The balloons are backwards to us, but correct to the birthday boy as he came out of his room.
Here is a new toy for me to enjoy music in the car and at Planet Fitness, and when working by myself. It's an iPod shuffle. It took me a long time to figure out how to use it, but time well spent.
Busy few days ahead. Tonight at 5 is a wedding for a young man in our church. I spent some time yesterday helping iron tablecloths for it.
My daughter, Susie, comes tomorrow with her husband and will be here through Sunday night. I have a couple things to do for her to take back for her wedding shower.
Elisabeth's baby shower is tomorrow at 1. I have a LOT of shopping, cooking, and such to do for that.
Sunday is our graduate fellowship at church.
Tuesday I'm cooking a meal for 20 for supper.
Wednesday I have about 10 teen boys here for a few hours for fun, food, and fellowship (translation: more shopping and cooking). Wednesday night is our youth group awards banquet. The kids get all dolled up in formal wear. More on that later.
Friday is a local college graduation. Hope to meet one of my adopted boy's "other" (AKA real) mom.
Saturday I am "catering" for a group of 100 for a dojo grand opening. I have a little food prep for that, too.
I think I need a nap!!
