Rocking Friday 2/23
I couldn't believe it when I saw Virginia's Rockin' Friday post in my Reader. With the kids out of school I totally lost track of the days. It's been a great, albeit uneventful week. I'm struggling to even remember what we did last weekend.
I know I played tennis a couple of times with my 14 year old. We are both struggling out there but we established a few rallies. Mostly it was great to spend time with him. It gets a little trickier as the move into those teen years, but I feel like he still loves his old mom (when I'm not nagging at him).
I found time for my twinchies I posted a couple of days ago. I'm all out of swaps now. Right now Tag Tuesday and Postcard Challenge are enough. Speaking of challenge, I made a tiny little step (tiny) putting myself out there. The director of the school play my kids are in, sent out an email looking for someone to do a logo and some graphics work. Usually I'm nervous to volunteer because there are others around who do graphics for a living. But this time I spoke up. Unfortunately, they had already gotten someone. Before I found that out, I whipped together a little example for her. She wanted a steampunk image, and the play is called Wonderland (a new version of the Alice story). You guys know what I did was easy-peasy, but I don't think she did. Thanks to Graphics Fairy I spent 5 min. layering different images and sent her this as an example of something we could do:
She loved it, and had some kind words for me. I don't know if they'll end up having me do anything, but it was a huge step for me just to send her something. Does that seem silly?
I am grateful that my oldest son's doctor appointment with the neurologist that did his tethered spinal cord surgery went great. He got the A+, and they don't even want to see him anymore (unless something should change). We were both so happy we went out to a nice lunch, just the two of us. Lately, he's been a little harder to talk to, but I just peppered him with questions and soon we fell into a lovely conversation that maintained all through lunch. It was a great "mom" afternoon.
It's been super warm the last couple of days. Yummy warm. It was 77F yesterday, which I just converted as 25C. It's a tease we often get in California in February before March gets cold and rainy again. It really lifts my mood! Even the animals seem happier!
I'm hosting an Oscars party for some girlfriends on Sunday. I haven't done much to prepare, I've really evolved into a extremely casual hostess. I'll pop out to Costco to pick up some nice appetizers and wine, and as long as I have the TV ready to roll, I think we'll be in good shape. Hopefully I'll have a positive review to report next Friday.
Those were just a couple highlights. It's been a much more relaxing week than I've had for a while. Can't wait to see what everyone been up to and I'm downright giddy that I'm actually posting on a Friday.
