Aaaah . . . peace and quiet
Don't get me wrong. I love my mom and my children. But between having everyone here for the last 7 days, plus dealing with DH and FIL in Hong Kong and 12 hours ahead, I am exhausted. I feel like I've been on-call for 24 hours for the 7 days. This morning I drove my mom to the airport and DS #2 left for home. I worked for a few hours in the office and then came home to an quiet and empty house.
DH did send me a wonderful birthday surprise yesterday. These gorgeous orange and purple flowers being hugged by an adorable teddy bear were waiting for me at my door when we came home from shopping. I can't wait to give him a huge hug when I pick him up on Saturday morning.
Today I came home from work to find my birthday FQs from one of my on-line groups on my doorstep. Fifteen assorted FQs to add to my stash. I also received 10 porcelain buttons I ordered from Giggle Buttons in Australia. I'll take photos of those goodies later. I'm just too tired right now to focus a camera.
Well I've eaten my dinner, watched one episode of NCIS on my DVR and I'm ready for bed. I want to get in a nap before I have to speak with DH again to prep him for a meeting later today in Hong Kong. Yup, I'm still on call until Friday night.
