Smiling at old pictures

Current mood: adored

When people ask of me
What would you like to be
Now that your not a kid anymore
(You're not a kid anymore)

I know just what to say
I answer right away
There's just one thing
I've been wishing for...
~"Bobby's Girl" as sung by Marcie Blaine

This morning, I was up bright and early – did not even hit snooze on the alarm clock. I put some clothes in the washer, walked Elizabeth, then went into the office to finish up some stuff. I enjoy the office on the weekends. It's quiet and I am able to play Pandora on my PC speakers instead of on my headphones.

This weekend has gone by so quickly. Friday night was the big Benefit for our Breast Cancer 3-Day team. It was held at Club Nico – and the attendees were pleasantly surprised by how well Nico did in presenting a professional event. For all the people who didn't go because it was at Nico – well, you missed out on a fun and non-dance club environment evening of entertainment, prizes, and fundraising.

Live music was provided by Vlassis, and he was incredible. The fact that he donated CDs and his time for our event makes me so grateful. We raised a nice amount of money and are hoping that next year, we will double it. With the appropriate planning, we can do it.

The event would not have been possible, however, without the fantastic planning done by my sister, Katie. She put the whole event together and it appears she has a natural talent for it. Thank you so much, little sister, for all of your hard work and dedication.

The event ended around 9:30 and a lot of us stayed around to relax, have a drink, and dance. Some of us danced better than others (I would be part of the 'others' group). Though I must admit that my dancing improves as my blood alcohol content goes up. (Well, it may not improve – but I do grow less self conscious – which is almost the same thing). Hee hee My friend, the 'Romanian princess' stayed too and we closed the place down – then went to a 24 hour establishment to eat breakfast and talk. It was a great evening!

I went to my parents' to pick up Elizabeth after – and stayed in their second guest room which contains my antique bedroom set. I was able to sleep in my own bed and sleep I did. With the exception of waking up early to let Elizabeth out with the other two dogs, I slept soundly until 5pm. Yes, 5 in the afternoon! My cell phone was dead and my parents didn't want to wake me because they know how little sleep I normally get. It was really nice to wake up rested with no signs of grogginess.

And today, I still feel well-rested. Perhaps a change is happening. Let's hope!

Well, I should finish up what I am doing as I am meeting someone for lunch.

PERSONAL NOTE: Hope you and the kiddo are having a great time!!!!
