Well, we made it to Disneyland and back. We had a wonderful time and it was successful in diverting my attention from the fact that my baby is turning 6 and I am turning 39. At least for a little while. Kindergarten will be over in less than two weeks. I am having a very difficult time with that. While not perfect, I think I have been a pretty good mom to a small child. I worry about how well I will do with a big kid. I hate seeing him outgrow all the things I dearly love and have to focus on the idea that maybe new things will replace them. It's very hard and I am not handling it well.
Besides Disneyland, I had the stomach flu to distract me from my birthday. That was kind of a bummer. I get so few three-day weekends and I cherish them as rare and precious time with my family and son. I did rally enough to go to see the new X-Men movie. Loved it! And I did get to spend a little time with family and friends which means so much to me.
My friend Susie knows how much I love the Timmy Failure books.
She put Timmy Failure into a special picture just for me! Isn't it wonderful?!
I'm a lucky woman!
My Summer schedule is now starting. In June and July, I work four ten-hour days and get Fridays off. I'm hoping to finally have some time to clean out my workroom and do something creative. I haven't made a single creative thing in months.
