As usual, Andrew's birthday went by without so much as a phone call from his egg donor, which he didn't even seem to notice, but it still bugs me. Selfishly, I'm glad she's out of the picture, but I just.don't.get.it.
However, she is SO not worth my time so I'm not even going to say another thing about it!
Tomorrow we're having Andrew's real-deal birthday party. There will be swimming, pizza, snacks, and fun. I'm going to attempt to make this cake. It looks really easy and Andrew will LOVE it.
Especially since the dog ate the cake we had for his birthday dinner on Monday.
I thought I put it out of her reach, but obviously, I underestimated her.
I told Andrew "hey, if it makes you feel any better, she ate my birthday cake, too."
I have to tell you about one of the gifts we got for Andrew. We gave it to him on his actual birthday. It's a nightlight that projects a scene onto the wall or ceiling, and it is seriously awesome. We got it at Walmart and I am not being compensated in any way for posting this, it's just a really cool product that I want you to know about! We got him the space scene, but the others look pretty awesome too. It really does work as well as the pictures show. Very cool!
Another reason I've described this week as emotionally exhausting is, besides some home drama, there's been sad news from my bloggy friends this week. I am so worried for Unknown Mami right now. Several of my bloggy friends are going through divorces, and I know firsthand how hard that is. Others are trying to patch up marriages after some very rocky times. And then of course, there are my friends who are hurting so deeply from experiencing devastating losses. I just hurt for them so much. I hope they all know how much their bloggy friends care for them.
And then of course there's work....it can be really sad at times, working in an intensive care unit.
And that's all I have to say about that.
I do have some good news! One of our cats, who kind of ran away months ago, is now home! He ran away before we moved to our new house (long story), and we kept going through the old neighborhood looking for him but either couldn't find him or he'd panic and run away. This was Elayna's cat, Charlie, and she was SO upset. But finally today, we saw him, and he let Elayna pick him up! And now he's home, so our feline family feels complete again.
ETA one more thing:
If the statement below speaks to you like it did to me, you need to click the link. Seriously, you need to.
"I'm currently making some changes in my life. If you don't hear from me, you're one of them."
Alright my friends. So much to do, so little time. But make sure you visit Mrs 4444s for more Friday Fragments!
