I would tell you about my weekend, but it would be pretty much a reprint of last weekend. Fill Shop24 orders, clean house, then add in some packing for my husband since he left yesterday to be gone all week. He is taking the Bar Exam in California and it’s an intense 3 day test. This is the grand finale of his 4.5 years in law school. I am so excited to have my husband back after all of this.
When I write my memoirs the chapter about these past 4.5 years will be titled, “I Know I’m Married, but Where’s My Husband?!”.
So I will instead tell you about my upcoming week because it’s much more interesting.
First of all….this is my birthday. Yes, I still like to celebrate despite being old. If I could get away with having a princess party complete with pony rides I would do it. My birth certificate may make it seem like I am mature, but on the inside I’m one sparkly tiara and a bowl of Captain Crunch Peanut Butter Cereal away from elementary school.
Then tomorrow is my son’s birthday. So it’s birthday-palooza around here!
I’m gonna have a week long party. From today until my husband gets home I will be in celebration mode. I have many plans including a bowl of the best chocolate frozen yogurt on Wednesday night.
Why Wednesday? I’m glad you asked. I have had so many inquiries about using essential oils that I decided to host a class on Wednesday night. I’ll be talking about how I got started and ways to use them; let’s end the mystery. If you’re in the San Antonio area and want to pop by, I will be at Sweet CeCe’s at 1604 & Blanco at 7PM with some fun oils info and a 20% discount on your yogurt. Bring on the birthday treat!
In addition to that fun, I decided to build myself something for my birthday. My parents sent me $100, so I decided to use it to build a jewelry holder/full length mirror in my bathroom. The only problem is that the supplies cost double what I expected. So I spent Sunday afternoon picking through piles of old scraps and putting some of my purchases back in my van to return. As God is my witness I will make this project fall within the birthday money budget.
Before I get struck by lightening I will give myself the out that I bought the mirrors a few weeks ago at IKEA and those won’t fall in that amount. But after that if I have to make hooks out of rusty farm tools I am gonna do it. I will not exceed this money.
I promise you will be the first to see it when I am finished (hopefully later this week) and I will give you a full financial report.
Have a great week and be sure to stop by and see me on Wednesday night!
