Being gone for a week has left me with stuff that really must be done. I've unpacked but not everything has been put away and I still can't find my medicine. I know it's here somewhere. My arthritis demands that I put everything away until I can find that medicine though. Especially with all the rain. I know I didn't leave it at Moms; she would have called.
I really am enjoying the peace and quiet. I didn't go because I'm not up for a birthday party just yet. But also I need time to de-stress and relax a bit. This past week was hard emotionally, I need this time to myself to sort through things and get ready for the week ahead. Luckily Ronnie's side of the family understands that I need this time. Next weekend we do have Paige's party at Moms house. She wouldn't hear of canceling it or moving it somewhere else. It's always been planned to be a small family party. She has requested a Belle cake from Beauty & the Beast. That much has been planned for: I have a Belle playset that will be placed on a cake made to look like an open book. After all, Belle is her favorite Princess because she likes to read just like Paige does. I need to put together goody bags for the kids and organize some activities. I do think I'll be forgiven if the party isn't up to my usual standards. Normally I get things ready for a few weeks or a month leading up to a party, this time I just didn't do it.
