Ladies…Did You Forget About Your 2017 Graduate… Don’t Fret… You're Not Alone?!?

"As-Salaam-Alaikum," "Peace be unto you"

A Day in the Life of ejnosillA

Ladies… Did You Forgot About Your 2017 Graduate… Don’t Fret… You're Not Alone!
See... it's not like me to drop the ball... I am usually the go to person within my family... and people are usually counting on me to fix it... and figure out whatever is going on at that time. In the meantime... If you are a lot like me… I am always on the go… with working, schooling, blogging and of course… mothering. 

Well... with all of this month's preparations for various family gatherings... I have been so busy trying to figure out how I am going to get out of that annual Mother's Day breakfast in bed thingy... and me feverishly getting my Mother’s Day Survival Kit together!

Not only am I trying to figure out how to convince my doctor into writing me a doctor's note so I don't have to participate in that awful Mother's Day breakfast in bed shenanigans... when I was there for my last visit... all he did was laugh at me and tried to convince me that my children weren't secretly trying to kill me... now... my imagination is telling me that he's a part of the plan as well... and...

Not to mention me trying to finalize our travel plans for my little sister's upcoming wedding as well as trying to keep her from turning into a Bridezilla...

To tell the truth... hecks, she was a little... big handful before the wedding... my cute... little Sistazilla! Now... I truly love my little sister... she is the littlest.. cutest thing you would ever want to meet... but meaner than an old rattlesnake!

I can't tell you how many phone calls I've received and how many fires I have to put out... I don't think anyone realizes that I live about 1,300 miles away and there isn't much I can really do from here...

For the life of me... I don't understand why they keep upsetting her... just give her what she wants and let her be... we have always have done that... because... no one... and I mean... no one... wants to get her started! But as usual... they have gotten my little baby Sistazilla all upset... and guess who has to go down there and straighten everything out and get yelled at... YEP... me of course... however...

All I know... my cousins better leave her little crazy azz alone... not only will we be putting flowers on our grandparent's gravesites this year... they better watch out because we might be putting flowers on theirs as well... Just Saying!

So... because I have been dealing with so much craziness that I totally forgot about that special somebody who is also having a big day this month and it's my niece… OUR FAMILIES’ 2017 HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE!

Well... Ladies if you are like me and you have been consumed with various preparations and just living your daily lives… and somehow forgot about your special graduate… don’t fret… I got you... and ME.. covered! Let’s begin…
