I'm trying really hard to go with the flow; trying my darnedest to relax and enjoy life and let it happen. Today is my daughter's very last day of high school. It doesn't seem possible. I swear it was just a few months ago that she was heading off to her first day of kindergarten!
I couldn't figure out why I've been so exhausted lately and then it dawned on me: I've been trying to keep up with her! She plays tennis, so I try to go to all her matches.
She just finished up with Speech and Debate a month ago and dove right into the spring play.
Then this past weekend she went to Prom. I baked and decorated a cake so they could have an elegant dessert for their pre-Prom dinner, and took her to get her hair done and helped her get ready. After helping with the dinner, I had to go to the grocery store again and get ready for the second wave - I served breakfast for her and her friends at four in the morning! She had such a good time, though, that it was all worth it. And she looked so beautiful!
And if all that isn't enough, this coming weekend is graduation. I'm too old for all this excitement! And I'm tired :)
I haven't had time to do very much with my jewelry lately and that's a bad thing. Micro macrame is how I relax and I feel so much better when I get a little "me time" in. So after I served breakfast (and took a little nap - don't tell on me), I spent the afternoon doing this:
Ahhhhh..... it's like a trip to the beach. Soft sand under my toes, sparkling teal waters... It's my happy place. Nothing to do but relax and sip my margarita. A girl can dream.
