I know I know Like I Should Post

I should Post. Really I should Because this past week has been a lifetime of insanity. And so? I don't post.

First, last weekend (sept 11-13) was a joyful celebration with the Captain in Charleston of what? MY BIRTHDAY. once we FINALLY got there (delayed flights, weather, evil airlines and a DRIVE from Atlanta to charleston, go ahead google that one) well, it was great. I received my FIRST BLUE BOX. Blue box? why yes, Tiffanys. And the best thing? It wasn't some stupid beautiful bauble. It was an adorable meaningful bauble that captured something we do for each other everyday, every text, every email and that? Made it a THOUGHTFUL bauble. From Tiffanys. So I wear it every day. (OK it says "XOXO" on a heart locket bracelet figure it out)

AND I got to tour my daughter's future university. Because? College of Charleston is her first choice. Statistically she will get in. And so although she visited it with her dad, I wanted to see it for my self. And fell in love I did. Yes. So now I can see Daughter there. I briefly looked at real estate and thought about moving there myself. What a wonderful weekend.

Then Tuesday. Soccer. Indoor. a slow motion tragedy. Let's just say that I am wearing a brace, not walking well, sidelined for 6 weeks and hoping for no surgery.

Wednesday my birthday. a day of doctors and MRIs and not feeling very good. Kids making me breakfast in bed (I love them!) and dinner in bed (I hate my knee!) and lots of phone calls

Thursday I get sick from visiting the doctors offices. Thursday night i get a fever. and a cold and hate this birthday week.

Friday I wait for the kids to get home. I turn down offers of dancing (as if) and bands and all the things grown up Next Door Girl wants to do as wait for the kids to get home.;

So I should post. really I should. But my life? is boring. and sad.

Next week!

If you choose Charleston, there are many really nice areas to live near there. K and I lived in Mount Pleasant and loved it there. But there are also many other nice areas to live in and near Charleston as well.

We lived just a few miles from the Air Craft Carrier

A birthday to remember, but not in the way you'd prefer. So sorry to hear about your knee. Go easy, and turn the corner to better soon.

Yikes. That stinks. Hope there's no damage that needs surgery. Here's to a better birthday next year.

Oh, and I LOVE Charleston. Such a beautiful city.

Besides the getting sick part your life doesn't sound to boring or sad and BLUE BOXES are my favorite! Hope the knee is feeling better soon.

My SIL went to CofC and Clemson. Not a bad place to go, and Charleston is a lovely place to be. Devildog's family is there, and if things go as planned, we're supposed to haul 4 kids (one merely a couple months old even) up there in November to celebrate his Grandfather's birthday. To quote the grandfather - if he lives long enough for it to happen.

I think you know why I'm here.

Yes, happy birthday and stuff.

Also, I tried to leave you a comment to that effect earlier in the week, but my computer ate it. Seriously.

Let's get back to why I'm here.

This is your friendly reminder comment.

XO
