That quiet before the storm...

It's going to be a full and busy week...however, someone is on vacation for the next two weeks...well, one week of real time off and one week of there-are-these-one-or-two-or-three-things-that-were-already-planned-that-I-have-to-do time off...but, still...this week is the important one!

Tomorrow is baking and birthday shopping. Wee girlie has a birthday on Friday and has requested a princess castle cake. And even though it goes against every fiber in my being...she's getting her princess castle cake. The child is spoiled rotten! Where are her parents?! Oh...wait...

Her "party" will consist of grandparents and another family who might as well be family...she's 3, her concept of "party" is Cake and Presents. Mainly cake. And she's getting little cupcakes to share with her kiddie classmates at preschool that morning.

My sister and I are running in our first 5k on Saturday. I know! Saturday! After we both had frustrating run days the middle of last week, we both hit our 5k mark on Friday! And just about with the same time as well. Not sure if she did the Rocky Balboa dance like I did...I forgot to ask. We also both ran today and both saw better times. I am so excited to be able to do this with my big sister! I think we're both really looking forward to the race. How kooky is that? We're already talking about the big 10k in the spring. And that's just crazy.

Oh, and I decided to make up race t-shirts for us. My sister decided, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to run in honor of her sweet neighbor and friend who has been in a drawn out, down and dirty battle with the disease for the past few years. So I'm making a shirt for each of t-shirt with a large hot pink ribbon on the back and "Team Netta" in pink, sparkly letters. We should stand out in a crowd in that, don'tcha think?

So see? The week is packed. But in a good, fun, not-really-stressed-out way. That's my kind of Busy!
