Two Things Thursday ...

because I don't have time for three ...

Birthday - On Sunday, I will become the mother of a seven year-old. Seriously? How did that happen?

I remember my seventh birthday like it was yesterday. No lie. At my party, the cake was in the shape of a 7 and I had my own individual cake, as well. And now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure that's the exact moment when my cake obsession began.

Anyway, back to what I was saying. Dizzle is about to be seven. She thinks she's 17. And before I know it, she's going to be. Time moves too fast. It's blowing my mind. 

Craziest Weekend - For some reason, the third weekend in May is a historically crazy weekend for our family. And this year is no different, in addition to Dizzle's birthday, we've got a bajillion things going on.
  • I have two runs and a bike on my training plan.
  • My little sister Gina's 22nd birthday is Friday.
  • My mom and Gina's BFF are coming to visit.
  • Dizzle's birthday party is on Saturday afternoon.
  • I'm working the Tough Chik booth at the Richmond Multisports Powersprint Weekend on Saturday and Sunday.
  • Dizzle has cheer and Doodle has soccer (we probably won't make it to either of these).
  • Dizzle and Doodle have dress rehearsal for their dance recital on Friday. At 4:30. In the city. 
  • There are two dance recitals on Sunday. The first at 1 p.m. and the second at 5:30 p.m.
  • I am working as the "Room Mom" for the second recital.
  • And then there is all the prep work for the party, the expo, the recital and for having guests.
Needless to say, I'm going to need some crazy time management skills, my support team and a big slice of cake to get through it all.

Wow. And I thought I had a busy weekend with coaching/picnic on Sat and a race preview Sunday. I stand (or sit rather) corrected. YOU, my friend, have a packed weekend.

Best of luck!! Here's to a celebration cake!
