It's gonna be a good week!
Ya wanna know why?
1. The younger bell choir from my church was officially accepted into the Disneyland Youth Performance program. Our director asked me earlier this year if I would be willing to chaperone/drive down there. And then she surprised me by listing me as a co-director with her (which she did so I could qualify for the the underground tour). And then when she got the final confirmation and she forwarded it on to all of us, I got REALLY excited.
It made me feel SUPER important to see my name there as a director (even though I don't "direct" these kids to do anything except stop being annoying)
2. My birthday!!! My birthday is on Wednesday, but I went out on Saturday with Chad, Sister and her husband, Kristine and her new boyfriend Justin, and then our friends Erika (who is Chad's sister) and her boyfriend Bobby. We went bowling (which is one of my FAVORITE things to do for my birthday) and had a good time. Then tomorrow we are going out as a family for my real birthday dinner to my favorite restaurant, Chang's Mongolian Grill. I just love a good reason to celebrate and I figure my birth is just about one of the best things to celebrate, yeah?
3. We are supposed to be closing on our house this week! Right now the tentative closing date is Thursday, and we are planning to help my mom move out on Saturday. Hopefully everything goes as planned, although I think we are cutting it awfully close to be moving her in to her condo on Saturday when WE are closing on Thursday which means she won't be able to close until after us.
