My daughter’s 9th birthday party is scheduled for this afternoon.  And as the event quickly approaches, I find myself worried about every detail … Will the location be OK?  How many guests will actually show up?  Do I have enough plates, cups, napkins, and refreshments for everyone?  But, when it’s all said and done,  the main goal is for Grayson and her guests to have a good time.

I can always count on at least two or three people to post something about “Hump Day” on Facebook every time Wednesday rolls around.  This always makes me think that we spend a great deal of time wishing our lives away!  I have been especially prone to this behavior during the current school year.  Third grade has been a major transition year for Grayson, and she has been given a ridiculous amount of school work.  In addition, one of the classes that I teach has been a constant struggle.  Consequently, we have several count-downs going right now: 1) upcoming dance competition, 2) Grayson’s birthday, 3) the school calendar winding down, and most importantly … 4) our Disney World vacation next month!
