Happy (Belated) Birthday... was a CRAZY week...but an AMAZING one!!

On Saturday the 12th Mom and older sis Peg came out to spend a week with me to help celebrate the BIG 40 that I turn this year--seems incredible that the same irresponsible immature me is 40--but its true--the numbers don't lie...they helped turn my house into an adult domicile, took on the daunting task of cleaning out my car, went on a voyage north to Canada (where I introduced them to the wonders that is the Alaska Marine highway System, Canadian cider, Loonies/ Toonies and, in mid snowed on us significant amounts...) They also got to help start the organization/ painting and all-around fun that will be the start of the new home of the Creating Place---ahhh--remember how fun it was to move your home?? well, it's even funner (is that a word?) to move a business, I tell ya!! Then to top it off, they threw me a party complete with my favorite foods--I love family, ya know???!!?!

So we had a grand ol' time, them putting up with me wanting to go running all the time and wanting more protein (worked well with them wanting to get in all the fish they could handle!! peg--however--didn't get in enuf "touristing"--it's a hard time of the year, tho', not much open yet---kinda like a teaser...) All in all, everyone behaved/ enjoyed/ partied themselves nicely and it will be a birthday to remember for a long long long time--thanks for all the wishes and to all my marathon supporters--I am still running alot (9 miles is the record--I finally got to run outside--was invigorating!! I am soooo looking forward to the race!!)

Thanks everyone--luv ya mom and piglet and look forward to our next paintaton!!
