A quick post today to give an idea of what's coming up in the next two or three or four days.
Shopping for Prom Supper to be hosted and prepared at my house tomorrow night. I received verification of the event on Wednesday. I'm off shortly to fill the list I have made. I want the group to have fun, so I asked N to ask if they wanted anything special. We are planning on preparing steak, steak fries, a veggies, salad and cheese cake. I got a request for hot dogs!
This is secretaries week, really it is. Therefor, it is also support staff appreciation week at school. I think it is kind of silly that I received flowers for my 15 hour a week job. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that they appreciate me, it just seems a bit silly. So, what I am getting at, is that I need to go to work half an hour early so they can serve me lunch.
Post work S and I are saddling up and helping move cattle over at my brother in laws. I am going to take my small camera and see if I can get some photos while riding.
The house must be cleaned. I am sure the prom goers tomorrow won't care, but I do. Pride and all that. Then to top the day off I am altering Nicole's prom dress just a smidgen in the waist. She has lost a bit of weight and the spaghetti straps need to be adjusted as well. She just sent me a text message that a good friend of hers needs alterations as well. Oh.. and her dress for tomorrows state solos and ensembles needs to be shortened.
Arise early for the two hour drive to state solos and ensembles. N's first performance is at 8 am. I believe we are hauling two friends as well. Jack will stay behind and get S to her babysitting job. Then it's watch, watch, listen, listen to the five solos and ensembles she is competing in and rushing back home with a different load of kids so she can get her hair done for prom.
While her hair is being put up, I will be at home preparing the meal and putting some decorating touches on the house. Then dinner for kids, dinner for the adults and off to grand march. They are crashing afterwards at the neighbors house, thank goodness. I am extra proud that they are avoiding the 'huge drinking party' that one of their classmates is supposedly having. Underage drinking is pretty prevalent in the area, but my kid and her friends aren't into it.
Sunday is busy as well, but not quite as today and tomorrow.
I hope you all have a great weekend as well. I try to get around and visit your blogs as much as possible, although I admit facebook tends to eat up my time now. Kathy Cummings if you want to add me as a friend. My profile picture is of Gunner.
Today I am grateful for these two busy days. I love my daughters dearly, and despite not quite knowing how I am going to pull this off, I wouldn't trade it for the world.
