I have so many things to be thankful for this week, and I love to spread the joy… The biggest news of the week, that I am finally allowed to share is that I am going to be an auntie again. My brother and sister in law provided such happiness to our family when they got married and then had the beautiful Chloe Elise. And you can’t imagine the pure unadulterated joy I felt when they asked me to be Chloe’s Godmother. Within a year I gained a sister, a niece and a Goddaughter.
Now it seems I am to be Auntie Ruthie again and I can’t express the excitement this brings all of us. My brother and I had felt for a couple of years that neither of us may ever have children and we had certainly felt the pressure from our family to start producing offspring.
James and Lisa, I would like to thank you for taking the pressure off me!
Added to that fantastic bit of news Handsome spent the week away with his kids and they had a fantastic time He is in the best of moods and is now spending the weekend with his Mother and the children. I have missed him terribly but am overjoyed that he returns to me tomorrow. Woo hoo!
And I know you will all be delighted to hear that I got a couple of grand back on my taxes. I wouldn’t normally brag about things like that, but things are kind of tight round here and I almost never get any really good news. It seems to be really piling up this week! I haven’t had a holiday since last summer when we went to San Francisco for a weekend, so I think I will splash out on a weekend away with some of the money. I can’t wait!
We have so many other things to look forward to this week. Handsome has a big work party, the beer will finally come out of the tub and into bottles, the seedlings are ready to be transferred, we’re going house hunting again next weekend. It’s all go for us!
Oh happy happy day!
