How DARE he look so happy and elated about the prospect of finishing high school and actually leaving his
As THE day draws ever closer I find myself in a fog. So much to do; so little time.
Early, early, early this morning found me frantically assembling and addressing envelopes for the announcements that should have been sent LAST week. Finally, after dealing with that little intrusion called a J. O. B, I finished assembling, stuffing and addressing the announcements this evening. I have charged Hubby with the mission of getting them into the United States Postal system first thing tomorrow morning. And by "first thing" I mean as soon as they open the doors!
Still no "real" ideas for the graduation party....it doesn't help that eight hours or more of my day is dedicated to that J. O. B. The graduation party, which will have no other graduates attending, by the way. My son has decreed that this shall be a party at which only family and family friends will attend. Which means none of his friends will be here - which, although our friends will love the chance to celebrate, makes me wonder what is the point?!
Seeing as I'm in such a panic, I've decided to take next week off for preparation. Well this, of course, brings on the panic of getting everything related to the J. O. B. done THIS week to ensure that NEXT week is smooth sailing for the bosses. Which also ensures that the FOLLOWING week will also include mayhem from anything that spills over....and it always does.
So for the remainder of tonight? I have decided that I need some wine and to hit the bed EXTRA early because methinks tomorrow (and the remainder of the week) is gonna be a bear.
* And, for the love of Mike, can someone PLEASE explain where these extra paragraph breaks are coming from?! But, on the plus side, I FINALLY got my blog bling to work, I think....
