can i just tell you that staying up until midnight
night after night
to follow the olympics
i have drug myself out of bed every single day since vacation
& our love for the olympics is only adding to the equation.
i'm an 8 hour a night kinda girl
& start to fade close to 10.
last night was the first night in ages that we turned out the lights at a decent hour
probably explains why i was able to practically do my own gabby douglas style vault right out of my
bed at 5:30.
so yesterday was bananas.
i had to call in the relief pitchers just to help get everyone where they needed to be
with a guardian type adult.
first off, i've had 4 noonday parties in the last 7 days
& 1 photo session.
which is fabulous however has made for crazy evenings & not very fabulous meals for the fam.
but i always have an excuse for my lack of culinary skills don't i?
all the trunks shows lately have been especially fun.
one at the home of a nurse i worked with years ago on the oncology floor.
thankfully with the help of facebook we've stayed in touch.
two of my closest friends hosted shows too.
( one loves steve penley. so do i. i just don't have any of his fantastic pieces)
back to yesterday:
entered noonday sales in the computer.
took caroline for her orientation at her middle school.
registered for ballet classes.
ran to walgreens & chickfila.
madison & emily had packet/schedule pickup for their classes
follow up appointment at the specialists office on the other side of town.
madison had MRI.
( my friend took her to that)
emi had interview at chickfila. ( & got the job!! awesome!)
(my mom took her to that)
& various smaller events in between.
so several months ago at my annual mammogram
the doctors found what they called a solid tumor.
sent me to a specialist for a second opinion
which was followed by a mammogram, ultrasound
& a needle biopsy.
thank jesus it turned out to be a cyst.
so yesterday was my 6 month followup.
i sat in the waiting room last december & signed myself up for instagram
during what would end up being a 7 hour day at the doctor.
anyways, i documented my covetous nature regarding the LV bag beside me that day.
yesterday i had to take the same shot. sans LV bag
& yes, that is my tattoo. which is a story for another day.
my support team out in the waiting room
when i got the " all clear, we'll see you in a year" report!
after that we ofcourse needed a little retail therapy.
i was so proud of caroline's schedule. she'll be taking all advanced classes this year.
so, she's been asking for weeks to go to the MAC counter & pick up a lipstick she had "researched".
nordstroms didn't have her color so we went to the actual MAC store
& they made quite a production for her first purchase.
when we got in the car she told me she was going to frame the bag.
& yes she's 11. & yes i allow her to wear a little mascara. a little shadow
& now, a very soft "cream cup" lipstick.
she's also wearing a piece from carol & company called the feather floating necklace.
ran for a quick stop in anthro & was out before dan could finish a book. this time anyways.
meanwhile back at the ranch madison was having a MRI done.
she was stretching last week & her knee cap popped out of place & slid off the side.
turns out she'll need surgery for torn cartilege.
but she did enjoy that her pre-op instructions were given to her on pink paper.
& after that great doctor report
(mine not madi's)
& completion of a hectic summer
i'll now be scheduling this ( valentines day gift from dan)
for when the girls go back to school. monday.
sadness. ( school not spa day)
congratulations again to sweet Em who'll start her job at ChickfilA in the next week or so!
