Lost Agenda

What a busy week ! All in preparation for a busy weekend - our baby will be baptized on Sunday !

Knowing how this weekend will fly by and be jam-packed full of activity, I thought it would be a good idea to only work a half day and get things in order with a little less hustle and bustle. My first stop was to the mall for a return and to purchase the jacket that I didn't have time to get on my last trip during my lunch hour. Two stores and one hour later, I made my way out -one full hour behind schedule. To my demise, I spotted a sign that read, " Street Garage Sales." Oh, come on.... I can't pass that up ! I made a few stops (in the pouring rain) and picked up some cute clothes for my nephew, Colin. Not so lucky finding girl stuff or me- stuff. One more hour behind schedule. I finally get home with Elaina and a few other treasures in tow and remember how much packing I failed to do the night before. At this point, I foresee yet another hour that will disappear !

We finally got ourselves together to get on the road for the almost 3 hour drive to get to Eric's parents' house. As always, they were thrilled to see our smiling, little sweetheart and soak her with hugs. Our 3 year- old nephew, Evan, was there ready to see "the baby." He lavished her with attention and brought her toys so they could play together. They were so cute - you'd think that I would think to pull out my camera for a quick shot. Nope. (Sorry - no picture available.) It probably would have been a good idea for me to have had my camera focussed on Elaina taking 7 steps in a row too. Nope. (Sorry - no picture available.)

My whole day was somewhat out of sync. What can I say ?
