Life this week...
Monday our youngest daughter, Paige got her first pair of glasses - she looks so cute!
Yesterday I helped my oldest daughter, Sarah, celebrate her 13th birthday. I am now officially the mother of a teenager - really??? Am I that old? Of course I had just turned 21 when she was born, but still... I love it though!
Today I am celebrating my 14th anniversary, sans husband. He got sent to Cinncinati this week for a life insurance conference and while he has been learning a lot, he has missed 3 big milestones. So we wished each other a happy anniversary over the phone a couple hours ago and we'll go out to dinner and a movie Friday night (the Time Traveler's Wife!) I don't know how some of the amazing single parents I know manage so well. I am missing my husband a lot this week. This is the only anniversary we've ever spent apart and we've had some doozies...
Anniversay #1 - in the hospital after having our baby girl Sarah the day before
Anniversary #2 - went to dinner and both got food poisoning... proceeded to puke our guts out repeatedly for 24 hours (I was pregnant with Philip at the time)
Anniversary #3 - decided to play it low-key as we did not want a repeat of #2!
So on and so forth... #14 might be lonely, but I'm still blessed to be celebrating 14 wonderful years! And my daddy brought me flowers since my hubby wasn't home (aahhh!)
