If we were having coffee, I would apologise for dropping in so late. After a tiring week, my weekend was filled with mommy events – plus my eldest daughter was using the space I normally use to type my blog posts. She is studying for her final exams and I wanted to give her the area to use. I cannot believe that she is almost done with her first year university – my baby girl is no longer a baby!
On Saturday I went prom dress shopping with my youngest daughter – another of my babies who is growing up. After finding a dress, we decided to look for the shoes next weekend as I was struggling – my energy was definitely flagging. I am hoping by next Saturday that the stores will have beautiful sandals available for her to choose from – though she would love to be able to wear her boots with her long evening dress 😀
Saturday evening was the highlight of the weekend. Our son is in Toronto for a few days and we had dinner together. It was like old times when he used to come over to dinner every weekend to spend time together. We caught up on one another’s lives and had a few laughs. It was definitely like old times! One day the girls will move on too and our dinners together will be what my husband and I will look forward to. This is the cycle of life and we are lucky that we have the gift of our children with us for so many years.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am practising some of the choreography for my practical exam every day. Slowly I am starting to remember the steps. It is a lot to get into my brain – and to remember when I am teaching the people in front of me. Doing this practice, though, is making me active every day and it can’t be all that bad for me – it is definitely helping me get those steps in every day!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that now I need to get ready for work. Have a wonderful week and we will chat next weekend.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
