My Kait was invited to her first non-family birthday party!!! It’s an exciting day. The thing that makes it even more wonderful is that this is for a girl that isn’t in Kaitlyn’s class and doesn’t even go to our church! We went to another church for a few months when we first moved here. I made friends with a girl who’s sister I graduated with. Anyway, this gals brother-in-law is severely Autistic and she has made a point to check up with me every now and again. She e-mailed a week or so ago and asked if she could invite Kaitlyn to her daughters 7th birthday. I was so taken aback. I can’t get over the thoughtfulness. To include a child simply because you know it is difficult for her to make friends. Things like this just make me smile. Perhaps we will have real friends after all!!

Someone asked me the other day if I blogged anymore. I have to admit I’m kind of off the whole blog thing. But, if I admit that, I have to admit also that I kind of feel a bit dead inside- creatively that is. One would think that I, being a creative personality, would do more in that department. My home would be filled with things I've made, my children would have lists of activities we've done together. I’d be a perfect room-mother right? Organized, creative, job-free. WRONG!! I’m just too tired I guess. But then I’m dead. Creativity gives me life, an outlet, but right now I feel so creativeless!! My creative brain says “make the valentines for your kids classes” my logical brain says “take a nap.” I hear, “it’s just your season of life right now”. I know that, but it doesn't make me feel any better about what I am not doing. Pinterest is incredible.. Love the ideas, cringe at the time (and sometimes money) involved, But the whole of the matter is that I am a personality that needs, not just likes, but actually NEEDS to create. Something, at some point in time. I’m working on it…… but today I’m going to take a nap!
