Happy Birthday Diva!RHM
, sorry to hear you have more pesky medical issues to deal with. When I was about your daughter's age, we went gem mining at Ruby Falls in Tennessee. It was fun!
Thank you all for the for the good thoughts and advice yesterday. The maids arrived on time and did a fine job. Our bedroom furniture will be delivered on Saturday at the same time as the shower, but that's okay as long as it arrives in good shape (besides, everyone will get to see our fancy new furniture
). MIL is here and settled in. My BP was persistently high all day yesterday (like around 140/85), probably due to lack of sleep (I napped an hour in the morning on the back porch lounge chair while the maids were here, then another few hours in the late afternoon before MIL's flight arrived, but still...). Today, even though I had 3 delivery people ring the doorbell before 11:00 and the phone rang many times with other issues, my BP showed 127/69 after lunch. So I rewarded myself with a trip out to take care of errands. MIL came with and helped carry so I picked up DH's prescription at the pharmacy, some dry cleaning from next door (including the comforter for our guest bed that I meant to p/u yesterday), dropped off some used up florescent bulbs at the hardware store for recycling, four plastic grocery bags stuffed with more bags at the grocery for recycling (our city won't recycle them), and several bags of things for Goodwill. For us, getting ready for baby has meant A LOT of cleaning out and throwing away. When I got home, my BP was 127/68. Getting things done is good for me, HA! All the same, I'll keep my feet up for the rest of the evening. Mimi
, I got pearls yesterday too! MIL brought me a gift of her mother's knotted, double strand pearl necklace! The clasp is a floral design with diamonds. Absolutely beautiful, and my first real pearl necklace! I've decided to change my outfit for the shower tomorrow to something that will go with the pearls, so there will be pictures.
Today I'm wearing more DK Chaos
, but tomorrow I'll probably go with J'Adore
. We'll have beautiful weather so the house will be opened up and I expect most of the festivities will be on the back porch. J'Adore seems perfect for mild summer days and pearls (I won't spray the neck area though).
