It has been a long winter, even though it was relatively warm until a few weeks ago. But I feel like I have not been able to get back into the swing since the holidays. In early November, it was a mad rush to redo my house for the holidays. That combined with the holiday shopping, baking, cooking, entertaining and watching my 2 1/2 yo gd from 7am to 7pm, 5 (sometimes 6) days a week left me feeling totally wasted. I like what we did, but there are still so many little things that need to be taken care of. Then comes January - February. It seems everyone I know and love is an aquarian, including myself. So, the shopping, cooking, celebrating continues. And everyone gets sick. It feels like weeks since we were all healthy. By the time Valentines comes along, I am so over it! So this year, I did not buy or receive any Valentines gifts. And now that it's all over, I feel bad. I say this almost every year. Next year I need to keep it together until after Valentines. That is when the holidays are over for me. I did not give any handmade gifts this year so I now have to make up for it on birthdays, mothers and fathers day, etc. Wow, I am getting too old, I cannot keep up anymore.

My hubby took me into New York for dinner and a show and we spent the night in a fabulous NY hotel.
We saw Mama Mia! I had heard that this was a good show, but I had no idea how much I would love it. We had great seats. The music brought me right back to my youth. It made me want to dance and sing. The performers were outstanding and the set was just perfect.
It was such a feel good show. I left with a big grin on my face. I loved it so much that I could see it again tomorrow.
I normally do not like a lot of attention on my birthday. Just a simple expression of love and a little acknowledgement is all I need or want. But I must say that this was a perfect way to spend a birthday. Thank you babe, I love you! I think I am spoiled forever.
My friend has been hoping to meet someone to share her life with for a long time. Because she is was not willing to settle for just anyone, she was starting to get discouraged and thinking that it would not happen for her. But then she met a man that she thought was not her type. But he turned out to be sweet and caring. The kind of man you know will be there for you. And he turned out to be the one. On Feb. 3rd, 2007 she had a very simple but beautiful wedding. I am so happy for her, and wish her a long happy marriage. May they grow old together and love and support each other through the good and the bad.
