Daybook~ In Which I Turn 40

For Today...July 19, 2010

Outside my's overcast. I hope the sun comes out soon.

I am workout clothes. I have yet to make it to the gym. I have already missed two chances at class today. Here's hoping I can get there for the evening classes!

I am so excited...about my upcoming trips. Paul and Brian have taken the lead on our trip, and our plans sound great, especially the fire every night so we can just talk together. Goose decided he would rather return to a hotel than have a birthday party, so we're heading to La Cantera to celebrate his birthday (again) on my birthday!

I so love...watching my boys play together. This summer has been great. Despite not taking a big vacation, the heavy rains, and the eye problem, the boys have had a great summer. There have been fights, but there has been more love than anything else. After March Madness, they have all been into basketball, and now with World Cup they got back into soccer. They are outside almost daily playing a game.

I am thankful amazing family. I love my parents and my kids so much. And of course, I love my wonderful husband who brings me so much happiness each and every day.

I can't wait...until Sunday night. MAD MEN returns. I have been watching reruns and am so psyched about this next season.

I am praying babies and for a great last month before school starts.

From the plans yet except I want chicken Parmesan for my home cooked birthday meal. I need some light ideas since I am going to lunch tomorrow and we'll be eating out most of the weekend. Cookies also sound really good for the road trip.

On keeping home...I am so ready for another deep clean. I still can't figure out how to organize all the learning toys. Maybe once the kids return to school, I can figure out a new system.

I am trying...really hard to stay away from Amazon this week. I have money for my birthday already coming in, but I need new bookshelves. There are at least five new books the boys need though.

One of my favorite birthday. Yes, even at almost 40, I still love my birthday. It is my special day. Mine all mine. I still expect calls, presents and cake. And always remember those who forget.

Noticing that...I always have a black rubber band around my wrist. Not really the look I am going for.

Living the liturgical year at home...we just haven't been able to get Super Saints going this summer. I finally spoke with a friend and we have plans for two sessions before school starts, then a kickoff for the school year. Personally, I think that's how it should be, but the boys have really missed their friends. We have been studying the different saints at home though and the boys continue to amaze me.

A few plans for the rest of the week...lunch with Marivi, Sushi with Chelsea (are you available?), La Cantera and celebrate the BIG 40!

A picture thought I am sharing...

Sharing with the food bully
