So, needless to say, I didn’t make it to work today until around noon. Our appointment wasn’t until 9:30; the session lasted a good hour, and as a reward, I let Alise play on the playground (after all, we were at the park!) for about thirty minutes and then we had to leave. I stopped by Chic-fil-a and picked Alise up some lunch and then I took her to school. Her class was eating their lunch so she walked right up to the table and sat down with her Chic-fil-a bag. She didn’t even say bye to me; I think she was starving to death! Ms. Gloria—Alise’s new teacher-- must have been out yesterday because she caught me and said that she heard Alise had a good day yesterday, so I was thrilled about that. By the time I got to work, I was exhausted because I had been running since the moment I woke up this morning! When I finally did get to work, I looked at Alise’s one year old picture on my desk beside my computer and I nearly started crying again. It’s amazing how she’s transformed from a baby into a “little girl” in just one year! I just can’t seem to get past it. A friend at work told me that it just means that I need to have another one. Oh, no, sister!! I may be sad about it, but I ain’t that sad!!
Wayne is down in his back. He called in this morning and didn’t go to work. He could barely make it out of the bed. He went to a chiropractor this afternoon and is feeling much better. He thinks it is his “psychotic nerve”. I always knew he was crazy!!!
The birthday plans are still going! I called Fox’s Pizza this afternoon to verify that we were still on for Saturday. I ordered the kids’ pizzas: one cheese and one pepperoni. I’ll order the “adult” pizzas on Saturday. Wayne suggested I get ten pizzas! Ten pizzas? I knew he was crazy! I don’t think we need ten pizzas!! Although, I haven’t told him about the 40 cupcakes!! Speaking of birthday’s Alise got an invitation in the mail today from her little friend and church buddy, Eileen Murray. Eileen is 9 days older than Alise. She didn’t get to come to Alise’s party last year because she was sick, but her mom, Ashley stopped by for a few minutes. We went to Eileen’s birthday party last year. It was a pool party and the first time Alise got to wear a “bikini.” Gosh, that seems like yesterday! Anyway, I guess we’ll be going to Eileen’s party Sunday afternoon. I see another trip to Target in my future!
