Happy Birthday, Mr. C

Saturday, January 20, 2007

Yes...Happy Birthday, Mr. C!
We are going out tonight, after what will likely be another crazy-busy day...
Being back to work isn't horrible or terrible or even bad, really. It is a very fulfilling kind of work, and I know that it is really important, and that I can make a much greater impact by being back. But I am still struggling with the business; the feeling of being rushed from place to place and from one of scrap of work to the next. I resist this feeling with determination and vow that life is to be lived and enjoyed and one can't do this properly if they are never able to slow the pace down. So I will continue to try and find that place. In the meantime, there are children's parties, and grocery shopping and house cleaning, and cakes to bake...I miss all of you. I will come and see what you have been up to as soon as I get a free moment. It doesn't help that everyone gave Mr.C iTunes cards for his birthday; I can't pull him away from the computer now!

    Happy Birthday, Mr. C!

    I also got iTunes gift cards for Christmas.... Now if I could only find where I placed it last....

    Happy Birthday, Mr. C!!

    Here's a suggestion: You could hire a nanny to do all the cleaning and baking while you sit back, read, and blog on your off-hours. Mr. C could pay for it, and he would reap the rewards by having more time to spend with you.

    Yes, outsource the crappy bits of life.

    happy birthday Mr C! what are itunes cards? still, happy birthday!

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Heidi;
    Yes, he reads most of the time...likely not much lately, though (he's been as busy as I have been).

    Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes, on his behalf.

    Chloe;
    iTunes cards can be purchased (maybe only in North America?...I don't know); they look like a little credit card and you can buy them in $10 or $20 or $50 values and then you just type in the code at the iTunes store and have that amount as a credit. In total, he got $70 worth of music!! So he has been listening to and buying music like crazy. My favourite so far (and he was pressured just a bit from me to get it) is Serena Ryder. I LOVE her new album.
    xoxo
    Cathy

    Happy Birthday Mr. C :)
    I remembered he was a Capricorn!
    Oh you're a woman of all crafts now: working, kids, cooking, party-organizing, blogger...uuff :)

    Wishing Mr. C a very Happy Birthday!! Tell him he needs his own computer! lol Sounds like you're so very busy...when I look back, I don't know how I did it, wearing so many hats. Now that the boys are moved away, I no longer do volunteer work and have no demands on my time, I'm finally rediscovering ME time again:-) Hugs xox

    Happy Birthday to Mr. C - I'm jealous of his gift. LOL. I have a list of songs I want to download and it keeps getting bigger as I just randomly remember old favorites.

    Life is busy but I think it's great that you are seeking balance.
