January already - Diary 13

It’s already the 3rd. of January. Where does time go? I know, it passes while you paint, clean, organize and totally make the dream bedroom for a 13 year old. I do hope she likes it. A lot of time and effort went into this project. A lot of questions in the past months about favorite colors and would you rather this or that or the other thing. Telling her we could not afford to do anything right now, to have patience. I am almost done! I feel like one of those TV shows that have a certain amount of days to finish a project and we are on deadline, she arrives Tuesday morning and I work until 7 on Monday. Today is it for me! The H made her a wonderful closet with huge drawers and shelves for her shoes and purses on the side and in the center for whatever she wants. To be used for displays (HATS) or sweaters. I’m more in love with her room than she might be. I organized all of her jewelry, lip glosses, perfumes, hair pins and the bag of lollipops she had hidden in the drawer. Bet she didn’t think I’d find that. I did find a diary under her pillow (she knows I’m the one that changes the bed so what was she thinking?) I didn’t read it though; I just put it in her nightstand drawer. If she wanted me to read it I’m sure she would have shown it to me. We must always have some kind of privacy! I won’t say I wasn’t curious, but I had already invaded enough. I’m going to let her decide what she leaves in her huge dresser and what she transfers to the closet. That kid has way too much crap and clothes.

I’ll post some pictures when it’s done. I’m sure there are at least 3 of you who will be interested in the final outcome.

I figured out how to add the numbers back on my G3. It only took me going to the T-Mobile website and typing them in. Now they are all added, well not all, I deleted numbers that I know I will probably never use again. Have you noticed how you add all sorts of numbers that you probably only used once? I’m not calling the city hall anytime soon or that Indian place that had sucky food. Gone and gone! I had a list a mile long and when I took a good look, I don’t really call many people (shut up my beautiful stalker, I know I have to call you back).

15 days until I turn 41. Am I ready? You know, I’m not really sure. The H wants me to have a party at the house but I’m not sure. Part of me wants to and the other is freaking out about thinking what to serve and if people will like it. There is alcohol in the house, we never drink it. I can cook a ton of little things and even make me a birthday cake. I have this wonderful recipe from my friend Irene that I tried a couple of times and everyone liked. Red Velvet cake, yum. I’ll share the recipe if anyone is interested. Anyone? Anyone?

I’ve been stalking some blogs again and found some really sweet ones. Women do love to blog! There was one from a girl who moved to Vienna with her husband and how she rather be there than in the US. Loved it! She had some really cute stories to tell and beautiful scenic pictures to share.

Well, back to the kids’ room! I can’t wait to be done and show it off. The H is an amazing man. The things he does for us to make us happy make him a jewel. Baked him a ton of chocolate chip cookies and then this spinach/meat pie he loves a lot. I try to thank him always the best way I know how.

Peace out kiddies!

Way to go! Isn't it great to remodel an entire girl's room? There's no way she's not going to love what you've done there for her!
I'm eager to see the pictures and maybe a blog about her return & reaction!

Yes, you're ready. 41 is the new 31.;) Have fun and enjoy the attention.

Any room left for my new number? lol
Can't remember if I gave it to you or not.

41 is not the new bones didn't hurt at 31 and my boobs had more substance.....gravity was still my friend. I'm least I have boobs haha.

Blase: The H is a very cool man. We've been together 21 years and we've had our ups and downs but one thing is for sure, we do love eachother :) and that is more than enough.
