Come look at the pretty, pretty fragments!



Today is going to be a great day!
I am meeting with a potential new client this morning. The woman who hired me for my current caregiving position referred me to a friend of hers, who needs in-home care for her mother. If all goes well, these two clients will give me all the hours I need and I'll still be home when the kids get home from school. I'm very excited!

Then I have a nail appointment (YAY, pamper ME time!), after which I'll have lunch with my hubby.



All of the kids will come home tomorrow evening. After I get them, we're picking up Elayna's friend, who will be spending the night. I'm taking the girls to an outdoor concert. It's a young female country singer who we've seen perform before.

I also have a craft planned for them to do on Saturday. If you know me, you're probably rolling on the floor laughing right now. I am totally craft-challenged! But I found one that I think I can handle. If all goes well, I'll post pictures. If not? This conversation never happened.




See this sweet little boy right here?

This week, he went to the beach. Just him, and a group of his friends. They stayed in a hotel. Three days and two nights. All by themselves!!
Okay, he's grown up a little since that picture, and they are all legally adults. But 18 months, 18 years....I still worry!
I am SO glad they are now safely home!



Shelbie has spent the week at a church camp. She'll be home tomorrow. We've texted some and I know she's had a lot of fun, but I can't wait to hear all about it.


On a totally different topic: I swear if I hear Kat Von D say "I'm the luckiest girl in the world!" one more time I'm going to vomit. And then mail it to her.
She's marrying a man (Jesse James) who openly cheated on his last wife and treated her like garbage. On what planet does that make her lucky??
I actually used to like her, a lot. Ick.




This is a new song from Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood, and I just love it.






Have a wonderful weekend!

And don't forget to visit Mrs 4444 and get your FRAG on!!

YAY for full houses. Good luck with your craft! I'm not fragging today... I think my thoughts are so scattered they wouldn't even qualify as fragments!

ModernMom said...

So much going on ! Good luck with your client, glad your baby is home safe and sound and I'm so with you on that cheating Jesse!

It sounds like you are going to have a great day and a great weekend! Have fun with all of your kids! I like Kat Von D and I wish they would keep producing LA ink.

wow, a week without kids, i don't know if i can even imagine that...

your blog is so cute!!!

i hadn't heard this song before, but i LOVE brad!!!! this song makes me think of all the couples my hubby counsels. he asks them to list the reasons they married in the first place.... reminders are good!!

I suspect the "little boy" might not appreciate it now (I didn't much back then), he is lucky to have his mom thinking about him.
It's one of those little things I miss.
all the best

Good luck on your new possible job. I hope it turns out just the way you want it to. And your crafts too! ;)

I love that picture you posted about your 18 year old son. So sweet. Cuz no matter how old they get we still see them as our babies. I tell my boys this all the time.

I like Kat VonD until she started trying to act sexy all the time. And now her and Jesse James? GA-ROSS!!!!! Just thinking about the two of them makes me want to take a shower. Lucky to get a cheating, lying, nasty guy? Ahhh... okay. Whatever. They're both dopes.

I hope you get the job.

That's cool your daughter can text you from camp. I remember way back when I did some camp counseling before cell phones, it was a rule campers could not call their parents during the week of camp.

Ellen Stewart (aka Ellie/El/e/Mrs. Seaman) said...

Kat, agreed.

Craft challenged, I love that. I am too!

mimbles said...

Good luck with the new client!

You're a braver person than I planning on craft with multiple children - craft with one child at a time is usually more than I can handle ;-)

Sounds like a great weekend ahead!

Like that song! :)

Myya said...

Good luck with your client!!! I hope it turned out awesome.

Awe I loved what you said about your son. So true! As a mama you never stop worrying huh!

I liked Kat Von D soooo much too but now I'm thinkin uhhhh NOT SO MUCH!

Listening to the song while I comment-So far, so sweet.

One at the hotel and one at church camp, huh? It could be worse; they could have swapped!haha I love the way you told the hotel fragment.

I really love that you are loving your job and things are falling into place for you. That's really a blessing. I'm sure your boss wouldn't recommend you if you weren't awesome--That's very cool.

I don't know who she is but why would she marry him after all that he did to Sandra! Hope your meeting went well. Boy do I need a pedicure, haven't had one since before my trip! Sounds like a nice weekend for you.
