It was a very quiet birthday for Michael yesterday. The real party will be today at Rick and Natalie's and will feature a lovely, homemade birthday cake with candles.
I was able to do a lot of gardening, made lists of everything I need to do and when, and put together the food shopping list. Today, I will attack the stack of paperwork needing filing and clean the drawers in the kitchen.
After making all of my lists, I am feeling less panicked about all the company coming in a week and the logistics of it all. A bit to do everyday. What I really need to remember is to go to bed on time, even when we have company. If not, I will get exhausted and ill.
Day by day. Reminder to myself to keep breathing and it will all work out just fine.
