The Last Few Days

Have been really busy! After I got home from work Wednesday evening, my daughter came over.  She is currently applying  to get in a Nurse Practitioner's program.  She has her BSN, but now she want to go further in her career field.   Getting back to Wednesday evening, she brought her application essay over for me to proof. It was a nice to visit with her while she was here (it is rare to have one of your grown children all to yourselves).  Her paper did not need much tweaking, so it did not take long to go over.

Thursday night I had the opportunity to see the play "West Side Story"!!!   It was only in town one week and a friend was able to get a great price on tickets! The stage production is definitely a must see.  The music, the costumes, the story (Romeo and Juliet played out on the streets of New York), it was just wonderful. A late night by the time I got home, but it was definitely worth it.

Yesterday, a busy day at work was followed by a mad rush to get home so I could straighten up the house.  The family that is interested in renting out house was coming over to see it.  I threw things in the closet, shoved stuff in the dryer, and crammed more odds and ends under the bed.  It looked great!  Until the renter wanted to look in the closets..... oopsie!!  It all worked out... they really liked the house and are willing to wait until we get the new house.

Today, I took my grandson to a friend's sons birthday party.  It was at a place called Birthday World, and it is like a mini carnival with rides and games for young kids.  Well organized and lots of fun for all the kids.  We came back to the house, and he had a nap and so did I.

Tonight is an early bed time and the plan is to get up early and get things done around here!

I also spent part of this weekend at my Granddaughters 2nd Birthday party, it was all water games and very wet and happy kids.

I love the time I get to spend alone with my Daughter, it,s great to have some girl time together.

I agree Maureen. It is a rare occasion when I get my daughter all to myself. :)

Birthday World sounds fun. So does the nap.

Seems like it's girl time! My daughter stayed home from work yesterday to be with me while I was sick. We had such a good time together and I got caught up on her life. It felt very different to have her looking after me! She's a marvellous young woman:)
