"He or She who every morning plans the transactions of the day and follows out that plan carries a thread that will guide him or her through the labyrinth of the most busy life". I have to keep a calender in my kitchen and in my purse, it seems most of the time I might have 3 or 4 scheduled things a month to do, this past year, yes I said YEAR, I have had so many things going on, I actually have to juggle things to get stuff done. I know I put this on myself, along time ago I learned from Oprah to say "NO", no explanation, just a polite NO. Our day yesterday was one of those juggling days!!! Our lovely car is on that dreaded "recall" list, so we left home at 8:30 a.m. to drop her off for her appointment. From there we went to one of our favorite places to go for breakfast, The Good Egg, it was packed on a Thursday morning, had to wait to get a table, I did not have wait for a table scheduled into my plans today!!!!From there we had an appointment to get our taxes done, ok no big deal we do this every year. W e had an appointment, but had to wait for about 15 minutes, no big deal, I tried to lay down on Mr. G's lap for a quick little "nap", but he said you cannot fall asleep at the Acct.'s office!!!Well good news there, we are getting a refund again this year, I know it is after all our money in the first place as we pay in dearly!!!!!
We drive home and I drop off Mr. G as he has a Dr.'s appointment, the dreaded yearly physical, yes, he Hates to go for this, I make him go!!!!!
I ran, ran ran some errands before Miss C was getting here, had to get a birthday gift for a friend, local boutique having big spring sale!!!!Spring flowers to buy, yeah LOWE'S having big sale on spring flowers, .99 cents for a multi pack!!!!Off to get supplies for our Community Yard Sale this Saturday, back home and barely made it before Miss C was in my drive way!!!!
Isn't it wonderful how children MAKE you slow down????? From the moment she walked in the door, she wanted Bubbles-Bubbles, so out to the back yard we went to SLOW down and see the bubbles!!!! She can blow them herself now and it is kinda funny--well not so funny really quite terrible tasting, she puts the wrong end in her mouth sometimes and she wants me to wipe it off her tongue, I decided one day to taste it for myself to see if I could stand it, NOPE it tasted like soap, glad I never was a cusser and had to eat soap!!!!

We had to go back and get the car at 6 p.m., had to wait for Mommy as we had NO car seat. Met the kiddos, our son C.J. and his girlfriend Jesse for dinner at our favorite Mexican Food Place, NANDOS!!!!!
Miss C and Mommy having some fun times, while waiting for our yummy food!!!
The boys went home and the girls did some retail therapy, can you believe this sign????
A TEE PARTY!!!!!! MY 2nd favorite kind of TEA-TEE PARTY!!!!!!
They were actually closing, it was right about 8 p.m., but they let us in and boy did we shop fast, and I had a 30% off coupon, so I saved like $100.00, you do the math!!!!!
ALl in ALL a very busy, another busy day in my so called life!!!!!

It was a busy day for you guys indeed! I feel the same way about saying , "no". I always book up my schedule then when the time gets there I ask myself why I planned all of it. Well, I decided this week that I am going to try and leave atleast 2 full days of nothing going on. Camdyn looks so cute with the bubbles, she is so fun!

Good Morning Jamie Sweetie...
I just adore this beautiful picture of Miss "C" blowing her bubbles. Isn't she precious? I really loved her in her Irish costume. Her shoes were just precious and I adore all her little bows that she has. She is quite the little fashion diva. I love it.

Hope you have a beautiful morning sweetie. I will talk to you soon.
Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Okay Jamie... I'm exhausted just reading your post.

I agree, little one's give you no choice but to slow down. The twins were here yesterday and they wanted to go outside and look for bugs. So we went out in search. Although the only bugs I like to find are ladybugs!

Sounds like a fun shopping excursion!

Wow - what a busy day!!! Camdyn is always dressed so prettily!! She's a doll!!!

Stella said...

I bet you are still panting this morning. But nothing like a tee shirt sale would hate to miss those. And you didn't have to cook. Right! Camdyn is always such a doll. Glad you had a fun busy day. Stella

Boy, days like that just wipe me out. I hope you can get some rest now. That was too many things scheduled all at the same time. Sounds like you did have a little fun though. Have a super weekend. Hugs, Marty

Okay I stopped where you tasted the bubbles - you brave soul. I know what you mean - you run run run all day, but when you get with the little ones - you just forget time and slow down. It's like seeing things all over again.

Hope you got some great tees.


Liz said...

Glad you got your refund and recall!!

Oh I just adore LOFT too.

Thank you so much for your good wishes. I am on the mend and will be back to my whirlwind self very soon. It is hard for me to sit at the computer for very long.

I am still planning on attending the luncheon.

Yes, you are busy busy busy. What neat pictures you provided as visual aids. Yes, I emailed my menu choice to Sherry.
It is very easy to do the link thing. Just highlight the word you want to link and click "link" at the top of the box you're writing your post. A pop-up asks for the address of where you want the link to go. That's the https thing at the top of your screen. Copy that and past it in the post thing. Click OK and it's done.
Have a great weekend. Looking forward to next Saturday.
