Getting the Party Started Early

Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. (Mine was a bit blah. Joey is not the best when it comes to special occassions! I did get a beautiful jewlery box from The Phi, but what I really wanted was a day off!) On saturday we headed out to meet the family for my sisters 4-D ultra-sound of the twins. It was very cool. The little boy would not lift his head so we never got to see his face, but the little girl was a major diva. Camera hog really. You can tell already that she is going to have her Dads nose.

After we headed to the Gparents house to celebrate Joey and The Phi's Birthday (they have the same b-day!) They can't make it to the Curious George shin-dig we are throwing this weekend, so we celebrated a bit early. We all went out to dinner at the Elephant Bar (great Mojitos!!) and then back to the house for cake and presents!
I love the fact that they share a birthday.

Singing to the birthday girl and boy!

Blowing out the candle.
Sophia got some great toys from her Gpa Gabriel and Joey left with a full wallet! It was so nice for the family to put this together. Even though we had to leave early due to the headlight problem.
Argg the headlight problem. Like Joey and I aren't stressed enough as it is. Joey is so stressed that his iritis is now in his other eye. The wedding just keeps getting closer and closer and seems like our to-do list gets longer and longer. The invites are finally getting out TODAY! No if and or buts. I have to do it. I even purposly did not pack a lunch so that I would be forced to leave the office. The Phi's party is this weekend and if my sister wasnt the best sister ever and doing the big Cost-co trip for us I would be more stressed out. Sounds like it is going to be a nice turn out for the party. Looking forward to seeing the family again.
But.....the weight of everything is starting to really get to me. The anxiety and stress of all this planning, and the 40 hour work week and taking care of the Phi 24/7 , and the dishes, and the laundry, the cleaning, the bills etc is making me feel angry and anxious. I am trying really hard to do it all and its getting done (sort of), but its slowly wearing me down in the process.
