This week is one of the most stressful weeks of my whole year. But so far this year I'm rocking it.
J wanted to give his dad a surprise birthday, so we did it a day early and invited a family of friends over. (Tuesday Brent had scouts so it wouldn't have worked.) I've never made him a birthday cake, always a pie, but this year, I wanted a cake since it was the big 3-0. I think it turned out great, was beautiful and SO tasty.
That afternoon I finished my children's homemade valentine presents. I have no idea why I make them homemade valentine presents but I do. I told my husband I was going to quit this year, but then I didn't. He said of course you didn't, you never will. Its probably true, but he isn't trying to guilt me into it, he couldn't care less if the kids get homemade valentine presents.
This morning, I woke up with vim and vigor knowing I'm rocking this week. I can do it, and I'm not even getting stressed or overly tired, more than normal that is. I told my husband 11 o'clock is not a decent bedtime for us. Plus I have cooked dinner every night since last Saturday.
Now today I have 56 or so chocolate chip cookies to make, and then stuff them with store bought filling for the birthday boy's class tomorrow. And make a giant cookie for his birthday. I can do it, while the kids are both in school.
The only thing I'm not rocking, is Valentine cookies, I had Brent help us cut out the sugar cookies sunday night, and they still don't have frosting on them.... blah for me. By Brent helping, it meant him completely taking over while I sat there taking pictures of the three of them, completely relieved that I asked Brent for help. Wondering how I could ever live without him and thanking the heavens that I married a man who has a crafty mother so he knows how to take over.
Thursday I have another hour or so spent at school for the birthday cookies and 100 day. (By the way my husband didn't know what 100 day was? Whats up with that?) Then I need to get ready for the friend party on Friday night. Luckily Brent helped me with the pinata last saturday. I can totally do this! Saturday I think I'm checking in somewhere, sleeping for a week. But seriously who will clean the bathrooms?
Did I mention my children have a 5 day weekend coming up. Who does that? Five day weekend?
