It's no wonder I woke up a little crabby and panicked. I'm going to have to work hard to avoid accidentally stuffing a container full of left-over cupcakes in my face today.
I managed to get through the first week of school without posting about my kids, which I believe should settle the question of whether or not I'm a mommy blogger once and for all, don't you? The short version is that Garrick has started middle school and the sky has not (yet) fallen. He seems to be adjusting well, for the moment, and I haven't (yet) gotten any calls from his homeroom teacher, which bodes well. He's even getting interested in extra-curriculars (which is unheard of), signing up for fencing club and accepting his pal's invitation to check out a Boy Scouts' meeting this week. I hesitate to breathe this thought out loud, but it's just possible that Garrick is growing up a bit...
I had a special order this week for cupcakes for a baby shower. Yum yum.
I'm actually in decent shape with regard to donations for the silent auction. We gots:
- theatre tickets
- restaurant gift certificates
- life coaching
- singing lessons
- art works
- a beach house
- foodie items
- SAT coaching
- marketing consulting
- tickets to cultural institutions
- baking lessons
