I've never held a human so small and gorgeous before in my life. I am so in awe of this little miracle. Welcome to the world little one. I'll always be here for you.
Mom is well and dad was (and still is) with her all the way. My sis G. is soooooooo excited. She's been wanting to be a grandma for so long and now she is. We've both been emotional wrecks. I kept breaking into tears Thurs. at work. It was insane. I knew she was in labor since Wed. night but it apparently took 12 hours for the full emotion to hit me. I just couldn't stop. Ridiculous. Oh well, it just added to my already emotion-ridden day.
My Mom is 93 years now and though cognitively she's a bit lost, she's is still here and we, my brother, sis & I, are taking a full-on meal to eat with her to her. From bread to dessert, we're delivering it, setting it up and chowing down with her. It's just so hard to take her somewhere so we decided this would be the best for her. Who knows how many more Mothers Days she's got?
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MOM!
Dance week ended Thurs. night and I managed to do ok in the dance. After our noon time rehearsal, I tripped and fell down, mildly spraining my ankle. I couldn't believe it. I immediately took some ibuprofen, iced and elevated the damn thing and went home to chill before the recital.
Gotta say, dancing hip-hop at my age was tough but I did it. Kinda fun to challenge myself. It's hard for me, to dance something I don't "feel." A.'s choreography was tough but really good. She was so patient with those of us who don't dance that style.
I already have an idea for a dance and the music for the show in August. We'll see. The ladies also want to revive the dance we just did again. Hopefully I won't hurt myself before the show. Unbelievable, what a klutz I am.
The annual party is next week and I've gotten some fun things for it and have so many helpers coming. The yard guy, house cleaners, carpet cleaners, ugh. I just never have enough time for everything.
The theme is Big Bang Theory. That show cracks me up. I went to a charity dinner & auction last night and the theme was superheros so I picked up some party appropriate paraphernalia to go with what I already had. Perfect!
I also bought a piece of art by artist Fernando Botero from Columbia. It's a fat cat on a roof. I just love it. He also does humans in exaggerated form that I adore. I need to get some of those some day too.
The charity was Parent Aid. It's purpose is to try to end the cycle of domestic violence and violence against children by assisting first-time, young mothers, families in need etc. I've been going with my sis for the past 4 or 5 years now. I don't always win at the auctions but if I don't, I just donate some money. Great cause. Too many children are lost through the cracks and even 1 abused child is 1 too many.
Well, Happy Mothers Day to all of the Mom's out there.
Stay healthy and keep dancing. Peace
