Today is one of those days for me, just plain tough. As many of you know I lost my suddenly mom six years ago to a brain aneurysm. Today would have been her 60th birthday. My daughter knew it was her birthday today and asked me a few days ago if we are having a party. She is still trying to figure out the whole death thing. I have tried my best to explain it to all my children but it’s so hard not to cry so I find myself confusing them even more I’m sure. Anyway, it got me thinking this would have been a milestone birthday why not have a little celebration. I am baking a batch of cupcakes this afternoon with all the kids. They love to help in the kitchen, I do not always let them for time issues but today anything goes. I freed up the whole afternoon to bake and decorate with them. Happy Birthday Mom and Grammie, we miss you!
On to my shopping, I did pretty well this week. Of course I needed some frosting I grabbed that at Target along with some other party things for my son’s 3rd birthday next Saturday. I am not going to include that in my totals because I have no idea what I did with the receipt but I think I was at $5 for that trip.
My Publix trip was on the medium side this week. I really did not need much so I stocked up on some holiday baking essentials. I make all of my moms Christmas cookies and fudge every year. My kids love them and it does not feel like Christmas without them, she made them for as long as I can remember.
