I’m so tired I am stupid enough to post a horrible picture of me. Mikey and I are both exhausted in this picture. We both have dark circles and puffy eyes. Not long after this picture he burst into tears, but not before thoroughly enjoying his birthday party on Sunday.
There is a season in my life that starts every year in the Spring. After Easter, I truly begin to sweat and tremble at what lies before me.
It begins with Mother’s Day.
Approximately 5 days after that is my sister in law’s birthday.
Five days after that is my dad’s birthday.
Five days after that is Mikey’s birthday.
Five days after that is my brother’s birthday.
Five, sometimes 10, days after that is Father’s Day.
Five, sometimes 10, days after that is July 4th.
Three days after that is my niece’s birthday.
Eleven days after that is my mom’s birthday.
In between all that are graduations, end of school year parties, and more birthdays outside the immediate family.
We are half way through the insanity, thank goodness. At least the 5 day celebrations are almost drawing to a close, which helps.
So, humor me. What is your busy season?
