Turns out my family has been planning a big surprise for me for some weeks. In the middle of an otherwise uneventful Friday evening, my daughter, who lives in Washington, D.C., suddenly breezed in. Once I picked my jaw up off the floor and dried my tears, we launched into a very fun family weekend.
Today's my birthday and since her spring break coincided, she decided to fly home and spend a few days with her aging mom. She'll be with us till mid-week. To say I'm delighted doesn't begin to describe how I feel.
Saturday night we did a big family dinner out at a favorite Milwaukee Italian restaurant. My son and his girlfriend joined us and it was perfect. Tiramisu for all! Weight Watchers kind of went by the wayside for one evening.
Sunday my daughter, my cousin, and I did a girly lunch out and shopping trip, complete with simultaneous makeovers at the Bobbie Brown counter. Which of us looked better? Probably the youngest of us, but we won't get into that.
All this hoopla and I haven't even had my actual birthday yet! I'm planning to enjoy that today, at work. Yeah, reality returns.
Absolutely no sewing to report. I'll get back to that.
