I am going to try something new here.
I don't really have anything to talk about.
But feel as though I should blog.
So I am just going to keep talking and see what happens.
Are you in?
We have a busy weekend planned.
2 more birthday celebrations.
And a Friday night with no kid or husband.
Whatever am I to do with myself??
The Anthropologie gift card I got for my birthday and I might have a date.
As previously mentioned, Ellie's school is throwing a sock hop.
How stinkin' cute is that?
Yes, I bought her a poodle skirt.
Yes, she is going to wear a scarf tied around her neck.
No, we don't have saddle shoes. Her silver sparklies will work just fine.
I don't know who is more excited.
And after that she goes for her very first friend sleepover.
Girlfriend is having a good Friday!
I had a UTI this week.
I am currently on meds and feel better.
The doctor called this morning, while I was taking Ellie to school, and I missed the call.
Message said to call back at my earliest convienience.
Now I am convinced I am dying.
Not funny, I know.
I am eating really healthy lately.
I am an overall healthy eater, but when I am super aware of what I am putting in my body I feel so much better.
So why don't I do it all the time?
It's one of life's greatest mysteries.
I am also on mile 36 of my Lent miles.
Must get a move on.
What else is there to ramble about?
Ellie and I had a nice talk about Heaven in the car on the way to school this morning.
I tried to explain the idea of a soul.
She just wasn't getting it.
"Mommy? Where is Heaven?"
"Mommy? How do you move without a body?"
"Mommy? Can I see my soul?"
Then we got into a discussion of what Easter was all about, and Jesus dying on the cross and rising from the dead, etc...
I think it kind of freaked her out a little.
"Mommy? No one but Jesus can rise from the dead, right??"
Now, I don't know about you, buy my heaven is filled with books and fireplaces and kitties to sit on your lap and sunshine and popcorn and golf courses and love.
I told her Heaven is whatever she wanted it to be.
I have no idea if I am right.
I hope I am.
Ellie has decided she wants an all girls tea party for her birthday.
I am in the process of planning.
It's still over a month away.
I am excited.
Think real tea cups and a dance party.
A scavenger hunts and a real live teenage girl to perform makeovers.
Should be a hoot.
I stopped by the local Salvation Army to drop some things off yesterday and had a looksie inside.
I scored like I have never scored before.
I got an Express dress for $1.
I got and American eagle dress for $3.
I got lots of Hollister tanks each for $1.
I got the cutest Banana Republic shirt for $2.
And other misc stuff.
Ellie got 3 or 4 dresses, a pair of jeans, and a few tshirts.
I performed 35 random acts of kindness the week of my birthday?
Yes, I stole the idea from Pinterest.
I wasn't sure if I could pull it off. That's a lot of random kindness.
You know, cause I am old now.
I sent 5 cards to 5 people telling them why I loved them.
I took cookies to a neighbor.
I took beer to a friend who was healing from a surgery.
I took a shamrock to a friend.
I took a muffin to a friend I hadn't seen in awhile and we had a nice catch up.
I took cookies to school for the office staff.
I took cookies to a friends mother who is battling cancer.
I took a bottle of wine to that friend.
I left cookies for the mailman.
Ellie passed out cookies to random kids at school.
I called 2 people and told them how much I loved and appreciated them.
I handed a scratch off lottery ticket to an old man at the grocery. He was surprised to say the least.
I passed out 12 cupcakes to random strangers at a bar.
I am telling you what.
It is fun to do nice things for other people.
I think that is enough.
