Busy Bee

Whew, this week is going to be a good one.  I love having plans and preparing for them and making lists and trips to stores.  This week my little baby turns one.  One year since I have set foot in my office, one year since Petunia made a grand entrance into this world and I added another title, mom.  The year has flown and now my little girl looks and acts exactly like that, a little girl, the baby-ness is slowly drifting away.  I see tiny newborn clothes in the store and my heart aches as I remember when she was tiny and sometimes I wish she could stay that small.  But alas, that’s not how the world works.  We grow older and so does my little girl.

I’m trying to keep a positive spin on everything these days since in reality everthing thing is going down the toilet.  Today, I signed a deed of trust to allow the bank to take my house if they so choose.  I don’t wish this on anyone.  But I sit here so thankful that today we still have our home, today I can wash my windows and prepare for the party, stock the pantry with food for our many guests and just simply enjoy my home.  Nothing like the thought of losing something to make one appreciate it, the good with the bad.

Today, I have my home but always, I will have my family.

  1. Happy birthday to your baby. 🙂

  2. I’m sure you are planning a wonderful day for Petunia. She’s lucky to have such a sensible, centered and loving mommy.

    And Bear will be turning 2 at the end of the summer — I’m in such denial.

  3. Erin: Happy Birthday to Petunia. You are right to feel nostalgic at her growing up. I don’t know where the last three and a half years have gone with my little boy either. I look at babies just like you and remember how tiny he was but those moments feel a world away. There’s still joy in the changes though. It only gets better and better with the little ones but there is always that longing for their lost, tiny selves. As to your home, I can only fervently wish that nothing ever happens to make you lose it. Nothing will. Happy to be back and reading you. Glad to know you are doing ok. Save me a piece of cake.

  4. Happy birthday to your baby girl! I hope you have a wonderful party. I’m still hoping and praying that things work out and you don’t have to worry about your house.
