TGIF, amiright? I’m glad this week is over and, physically, I’m all back to normal and can move on. Thank you, by the way, for all your kind words on this post. I’m hoping I will have happier news to share in the next few months. In the meantime, I got to enjoy some belated birthday bubbly this week, so, you know: silver lining and all.
This is the last quiet weekend for a while. Next weekend I’m taking Jackson to Missouri to visit my parents, and the weekend after that we have Yom Kippur, a 3-year-old bday party in the ‘burbs, and a baby shower back in Brooklyn. And the weekend after that is Jackson’s birthday party (for which I need to send out invites and, like, plan something). This year we’ll just order a cake for the party. (Last year I was crazy and made a 3-layer — or maybe it was even 4 layers — cake for 35+ guests), but for his actual birthday this year, I’m thinking about making this (because, oh my God, YUM). And I don’t know what the weekend after that holds, but probably more birthday parties since it’s the season for that. And then it’s Halloween and I need to plan for that. Jackson says he wants to be Daniel Tiger which, if you have a child in your life between 2-4, you have surely heard of and, if you don’t, you probably haven’t. So I need to get the costume and shoes (cute little toddler red converse, I think) and makeup to paint his face (does anyone have any recommendations for face paint makeup?). And then we’re in November and it’s practically the holidays and I’ve got to start my gift guides and holiday shopping and meal-planning and travel-planning, oh my god, just pass the wine, please.
P.S. I love that song posted above that someone in my Facebook feed linked to earlier this week. I wish I could find lots more just like it.
P.P.S. I’m doing a fall donation drive next week and will have fun stuff for donors to win each day. Stay tuned!
P.P.P.S Happy wedding weekend to call-me-hobo!
