#32~My Birthday Girl...

18 years ago I was basking in the glow (read:exhaustion) of new motherhood! My beautiful girl turns 18 today! Sometimes it's hard to believe that my 5lb 14oz bundle of awesomeness has grown into such a gorgeous young woman, since it seems like yesterday that she was born. As if I just blinked and she's all grown up...

She's working today but I've taken the day off. There's cupcakes to be baked! And much remembering for me, of the last eighteen years of growing together.

I came home to new puck lights under the kitchen cupboards! The counter, sink and taps have been in for a few weeks~the kitchen is looking awesome! It needs a couple of new shelves in two of the cupboards. Tile backsplash and new cupboard doors will come later. We need to make a decision on the paint color. It's been awhile, but it's all coming together now!

So the mister went in to work today~they've been working 2 hours O/T every night for weeks, plus 4-8 hours on Saturdays, the project is a bit behind! The site is on the sketchy side of town, and at the end of the day,he found his driver's side window punched in, glass everywhere and his tools missing. He had the parking attendant call the security guard, but they hadn't seen anything. Then the attendant (the same one) tried to charge him 6 bucks for his parking! Um, no. So we spent the afternoon cleaning up glass bits and taping poly where the window used to be. Hopefully his employer will help out with the tool loss...
