Friday surprise: At planning meeting for "farewell event" for head of children's school, reach into coat pocket to silence ringing cell phone, and pull out...Barbie shoes.
During Friday trip to the orthodontist: try to convince eldest child of the merits of wearing his million-dollar headgear, while keeping him from punching his younger brother while they fight over the use of my cellphone.
Weekend events scheduled: Two birthday parties, one sleepover, one bar mitzvah, two haircut appointments.
Event cancelled: Long-awaited Sunday "girls' night" cozy dinner and screening of movie organized by my best friend.
New event scheduled instead: Help hubby pack and see him off on week-long business trip to Vancouver that has been moved up. Take care of three children without hubby instead of attending girls' night.
Second new event scheduled: sleepless night contemplating week ahead without hubby.
