Another week has passed. Wasn’t it just Sunday a few days ago?
Life for me this week has been unpredictable, but that is life, is it not?
Our homeschool co-op has a Spring Banquet in April, and both of my teenage daughters plan to attend. My older daughter drove herself to buy a dress. The younger one will have her license in a few short weeks, but for now, I’m the driver. So Tuesday we spent the afternoon shopping–not my favorite pastime, but I did enjoy spending time with my not-so-little girl.
Wednesday, my first round of edits hit my mailbox, so I spent most of that day and a good portion of Thursday working on those. I’m also going through another author’s manuscript (round two), since I’m her proofreader. I think she has a love/hate relationship with me.
Friday was co-op day and my birthday. My family made it special. I received a puzzle, a rose notebook, bunny peeps, silk roses (pretty ones), a 3D version of the Tardis (designed by my son and printed on a 3D printer), a Dr. Who poster, a bread machine, and new oven mitts. I asked for the last two. Some years I ask for impractical things, but this year, I went with the practical. My hubby loves fresh baked bread. I aim to please. :) Then hubby took me to dinner. Afterward we came home and had ice cream with the two youngest (all the others were out). All-in-all it was a fabulous day.

Yes, it does feel as though it was just Sunday, Ginger. Can you believe we’re approaching the end of February…crazy!
Yesterday, I spent all day working on my line edits from my editor…painful, but fun at the same time.
Have a great week!
Line edits… Fun. NOT! Except when they’re done.
Happy birthday!! The children grow so quickly. Yesterday while shopping to replace our broken washing machine, our youngest was calling with her various wedding plans. My husband looked at me at the end of the phone call and said I’m glad you’re here, I didn’t know what half of those words were! (Referringto wedding dress and veils)
We haven’t had our first wedding yet, but I expect it this year, though it will be a son and not a daughter, so I probably won’t get the wedding dress/veil calls. I don’t expect it’s too far in the future for me though, since my oldest daughter is 17 1/2. They definitely grow up too fast.

Sounds like you enjoyed a wonderful birthday! :-) Happy Birthday! My week was filled with reading and recovering from medical procedure. Yesterday I was able to have my first big outing in a while. Some friends and I went to a local restaurant for breakfast. Lots of fun and giggles. Have a great week!
Thank you, Melissa. I’m so glad you’re recovering.
Happy Birthday Ginger! It sounds like a nice time.
My week was pretty low key. I did a lot of reading in between working at my day job.(Special Ed. IA at a middle school)
I also get the opportunity to lead a woman’s Bible study on Monday night’s.
This weekend I got to spend time with my two youngest daughters watching an Adele concert on TV. My husband and I have four children who are all on their own now so anytime they do by we love it.
Thank you, Marylin. A week of restful reading would be DELICIOUS, but I hope to get that in April. :)
Linda Hogue says
Happy Birthday Ginger, I really enjoyed your comments. I so admire your choosing to homeschool your children, I truly believe it’s the best things to do for your kids, especially in this day and age! Have an awesome week!
Thank you, Linda. Homeschooling is a challenge, but so worth it.
LeAnn Carter Kelly says
Ginger, sounds like you had an enjoyable and fun birthday. Time seems to fly by so quickly and it does seem as yesterday was last Sunday! What happened to the rest of the days in between?!! I look forward to the weekends to relax a bit and spend time with my family. Hope you have an awesome week.
Thanks, LeAnn. I pray your week is enjoyable as well.
Katy C. says
Thank you, Katy.
Happy Birthday, Ginger! I remember those days with newly licensed drivers. When my son received his license, we promptly departed on a trip from Central Missouri to Utah. The best initiation since it was flat roads in Nebraska and Wyoming. I enjoyed the chance to relax and enjoy the view.
Relax? With a new driver? Uggh…not me. I’m not sure how.
Sharon Kay says
Thank you, Sharon.
Happy birthday, I am glad you enjoyed the day.
Thank you, Linda.
Happy Belated Birthday, Ginger! May you and your family enjoy the fresh bread from your bread machine. Even in retirement life is busy, while watching grandkids. Last week was busy, because of President’s Day, but this week will be busier as my daughter-in-law is attending a dental conference and my son may also have to be out of town. The highlight on Wednesday is the local Book Club for Foodies. Great discussion and tasty food. Enjoy your week.
Thank you, Renate. It sounds like you have a busy week planned. Have fun.
DK Stevens says
Family does make for a wonderful birthday! Happy Birthday!
Happy belated birthday Ginger!! I’m so glad you had a fantastic day with family celebrating your special day :-)
Happy Belated Birtday. My weeks are filled with homeschool a sixteen year old who thinks they know everything. It is challenging but I would not change one minute of it. We also have outside activities we do just to keep school interesting. History seems to be the topic of the month for us and I just discovered how much I enjoy history.
It sounds like you had a week full of small blessings. :)
