So, yesterday was Malik's birthday. And Bring Your Child to Work Day. He loved being here. I made him do the mail, and had him help me (some) with the filing. We went to Macaroni Grill for lunch. I told the waiter that it was his birthday. At the end of our meal, he brought a (maybe) 4 inch square piece of chocolate cake with a candle in it.
Then, DeAndre' had a baseball game. This was not a scheduled game, but rather a REscheduled game. They were rained out on Saturday. Mind you, we live in Oregon, and it rains here. Both boys have had a few rain-outs. None are rescheduled EXCEPT the one that falls on Malik's birthday. So, at 8:?? whenever we left the game, we went home and had some cake and presents. Then we told the boys the good news. Therefore, we didn't get to bed until 10:30. Today I am EXHAUSTED!!!!!!!!! I am usually tired on Fridays, but this is crazy.
PLUS, tomorrow is baseball pictures for both boys and games for both boys. We have to be at the park at 8:00 in the am. Plus, we have the real party for Malik tomorrow night. Which means I have to wake up even earlier, to start the spaghetti sauce. Plus, some last minute house-cleaning. I think I hate baseball season.
Malik liked his teddy bear - yes, I finished it - well, mostly. At the moment, he has no eyes, or a mouth, and no fingers or toes. So, I will finish it up someday. He took it to bed with him last night, so I can't do it now. (darn!)
BTW... The boys didn't say much when we told them, I think it has to sink in a bit.
PS..."make me feel better" is because I am sooo tired, I don't think I can make it another hour at work today. I had hoped this would cheer me up or something - I don't think it worked.
Have a good weekend all! I plan to have a good Sunday, anyway.
