Mr. Baby has been a grumpy little bear the past two afternoons. He doesn't like anything and especially not napping, which is the only time he isn't fussing. Actually, he likes everything for up to five minutes, at which time he starts fussing again.

Right now he is sound asleep and looking so peaceful. He should sleep for an hour to 90 minutes. We'll see.

Today I'm creating baby xanax (just kidding, although I'm tempted). Really I have been working on final plans for four events that are taking place this weekend. But tonight, I'm creating homemade burgers for Mr. B, Dr. Mc and me. I haven't done this in at least a year. Let's see. Friday night at home with burgers, margaritas and a movie. It doesn't get any better!

It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if I only blogged every other day or once a week. I'm using that as an excuse for not blogging everyday. What would be even better is if I slowed down and had more time to do what I enjoy and really like, and stopped with the rest of the activities.

I don't want to seem as if I'm complaining about what has been going on this week! Monday night we had dinner with the family and last night Mr. B and I went to see Big Daddy's band (The Suffers) play a short set at M Penner. Terrific evening! This afternoon The Suffers left for parts East, including NYC for the David Letterman show on Monday, March 30.

Today I'm creating too much to mention. Around 3:30 p.m. I got a cancellation notice from a bus charter company for rentals this coming Saturday and Sunday. In Houston this weekend is the Shell Houston Open as well as Bayou City Art Festival so buses are at a premium. I had to call six other companies before I could get a confirmation, but I got it done.

Look at the innocence of Mr. Baby's little face! When the picture was taken, he was enjoying (through his baby ear muffs) the sounds and sights of SXSW. Understand that my crystal ball isn't making any projections, but I think TLP has great opportunities and a wonderful life ahead of him. To paraphrase the Dos Equis man (I love his voice!), stay positive my friend!

Tonight we're going as a family to celebrate Mr. B's birthday. His birthday was actually last Thursday. Dr. Mc, Big Daddy and Mr. Baby were in Austin at SXSW. Sweetness and Girafferty were in Big Bend. So Mr. B and I had a private dinner for two at La Griglia (yummy).

Today I'm creating final touches for the pop-up party that is taking place on Sunday. For some reason, I can't get the rental company to call me back. So frustrating!

Do you love this picture of Mr. Baby or what? Last night he went with his mama to Austin so they could attend SXSW. Big Daddy was already there. This picture was taken this afternoon while the Houston Zamoras were visiting with some of the Austin family.

You can see TLP is being held up from behind, but it looks like he is standing on his own with his bottle, bib and ear muffs. I guess the music was just too loud for the little man.

Today I'm creating lunch with friend Candy. We had a delicious lunch at Hugo's. After several margaritas, I came home and had a long nap.

I must be getting back into the swing of working more hours. I've been at the office all day and I'm still awake. That's a good thing.

Mr. Baby and I watched Dancing With the Stars last night. He loves music! He would watch the dances and kick his feet. Then when the talking started he would play with something or look away or fuss. When I play The Suffers' music (Big Daddy's band) on my computer, TLP will stop what he is doing and listen to the music.

Today I'm creating phone calls to vendors to source lighting for an event. I also wrote two invitations and had lunch with a friend. It's all good.

Happy Monday, if there is such a thing. Actually, my Monday went well. I didn't sleep much last weekend so I slept a little later than usual this morning.

My afternoon was productive, but with several events taking place in the next two weeks, I'm feeling a bit nervous. For the biggest event at the end of the month I have to turn an ugly warehouse space into industrial chic on a relatively small budget. Someone is also neglecting to keep me informed of the latest details, which makes the planning very frustrating.

Today I'm creating smiles on Mr. Baby's sweet face. Sure I got work done, but I'd much rather talk about feeding TLP cereal for dinner, planting "raspberries" on his stomach while he giggles, and kissing his sweet cheeks.

After two days of a stomach virus I'm feeling on the mend today, but not well enough to crawl under the bed to find matching shoes. As I result I have on two different shoes. It's a good thing Mr. Baby won't notice.

I haven't seen the TLP since Monday. It's a good thing that Big Daddy is between band tours because he has been available to stay Aulay. I didn't want to be around TLP while I was sick.

Today I'm creating nothing. Instead I'm laying back. I am washing clothes and sheets to get rid of all the germs. And disinfections are my friend.
