What's Happening in My World

Let me think--Yesterday my baby boy turned 34. I feel funny saying that makes me feel old when I think about my dad. He put that bug in my head once and now when I say something makes me feel old, I hear him say "How do you think I feel?". Darn him! Anyhow, we went to Doug and Lacey's for dinner. Lacey and her sister, Allie, made the absolute best marana sauce and meatballs I have ever tasted. They say it is a secret family recipe from Sicily and each of them has their part down to a science. Oh my goodness, it was so good. I've got leftovers in the fridge but I think I'll put them in the freezer for another time.

Tomorrow is Miss Taylor's 9th birthday and in a couple weeks, Miss Clella turns 1. That takes care of the birthdays for the year unless I have forgotten someone.

Our dinner on Sunday was good. The kids had fun and it makes me wish we could have more family days. Christmas dinner will be at Jen's house and then we probably won't all be together again until Easter. BooHoo!

My Christmas gifts are almost all finished. I joined an online group last January and we work on Christmas all year. I am feeling no pressure at all and that is a first! Of course we have all decided to cut back dramatically--only gifts for the kids. But I have to have at least a small gift for my kids. I just have to!

Today is sewing day. I have missed my friend time and really need to go. I'm looking forward to a great day.

I had a friend whose mom wouldn't let my friend say how old she was, because it made the mom think about how old "she" was. The mom was 80 - so don't know how you can not think about that. "-)

My baby turns 39 next week - how in the world did THAT happen???

Okay, I can accept that Gug is 34 because the 29th Marcie will be too, but Tay being 9??? I don't think so. Tell her that her Auntie SuSue said to KNOCK IT OFF!!

Speaking of birthdays.... this time of year is so depressing for my.... Sunday my baby will be 31, Marcie soon 34, and two weeks after Christmas Gary will be 38. I haven't seen him since he was Bob's age. Sad huh?

Be sure and kiss all the birthday kids for us :) Even Tay... even though she makes me feel a hundred years old.

Love ya,
