Last Saturday I threw Michael a surprise fiftieth birthday party. Thanks to help from friends and family it was a very special evening. I don’t entertain much, but the party reminded me why I should.
That same night Mom and Greg took John to a PBR (Professional Bull Riders) competition here in town. He loved it! He’s been quoting the comedian ever since 😉 I’ve only seen bull riding live once, many years ago. It was high-school level, not professional, and I was beside myself worried about the kids getting hurt. I don’t think I’d be able to watch professionals – I’d be constantly thinking about whether they had young children to raise, how in the world they got health insurance or life insurance, and what sort of medical issues would plague them in the years to come. Yeah, I’d be a real Debbie Downer at the Bull Ride.
Judging by the last few years Kentucky shouldn’t call this time period “Spring” anymore. It should be referred to as “Thunderstorm and Tornado Season”. I’m so glad I happened across something to help our rescue dog, Boss, who’s terrified of storms. I used this pheromone diffuser for the first time when I did a sponsored post for them, but I saw such a huge difference within two weeks that I have been buying refills ever since. Amazon has the best prices. I’ve bought it in pet shops, but it costs about twice as much.
Here’s my other new favorite product – because of it my dress for Aaron’s wedding fits nicely. Which is a very good thing since the wedding is now less than a month away! Again, Amazon has it for literally half the price of the health food stores in my area. And when I tried to buy it somewhere else I had to go three places to find it in stock 🙁
My neck and back pain has been exceptionally bad lately, and I don’t know if it’s the weather (changes in barometric pressure can make a huge difference) or the fact that they’ve changed my muscle relaxers. I’m not going to call and complain until the weather settles down.
Considering how close Aaron’s wedding is I think I’m doing pretty well emotionally. Just the one crying jag so far. Compared to him going away to college this is a piece of cake. I hope those words don’t come back to haunt me :/
Busy weekend coming up, including hearing Tiffany Reisz speak. My goal is to get everything on my to-do list done, but to pace myself well enough that I don’t end up in bed all day Monday. I’m not good at pacing myself. You’d think after all this time I’d have learned my limits, but evidently that’s still a work in progress.
