Birthday month

February around here is birthday month for this house. Three of the five of us have birthdays within 2 weeks of each other. This year Tristan was 10! I can't believe the years have gone by like that. I remember him as a baby like it was yesterday. Madeline will be 2 tomorrow. Again, the time has flown by. I am now out of excuses for my extra weight as there are no babies left to blame it on! We have been passing a nasty flu around this house so many times I am ready to burn it down to get rid of the germs. Fortunately it looks like we are done with it. Spring better get here soon. I am tired of being cold with no snow. It is just cruel. Plus I really would like to plan a trip to the Stately Strother Manson for some much needed R&R with the awesomeness that lives there.

Sad and Lonely

Warning, I am about to whine! I realized this weekend that I am 34 years old and really have no friends. I hosted a Tupperware party, at my mom's request since she had one and needed the bookings. I invited 24 people, mostly ladies from school who I thought I was friendly with, and only my mom, MIL and neighbor showed up. The real insult was that only 4 other people even bothered to call and tell me they weren't coming, the rest just didn't show. The Tupperware lady said to try and get "outside" sales, but I have no one to ask. Now, I could give a flying poop about the Tupperware, but how sad that I have no one to play with. I didn't even rate any RSVPs. Add this episode to the fact that my close friend of over 12 years just stopped talking to me a year ago with no explanation and you can see why I feel like crap. I have one set of really good friends who live hours away and I never see. Then I have a friend who lives near by and although she is really sweet, we have little in common and I often feel "distant" from her. Why is it so hard for adults to make friends? I don't work outside the home so I have very little contact with the outside world making it even harder to meet people. Plus, I will admit I am not very tolerant and very picky about who I hang with.
As for the rude ladies at school, they can suck it. I am done pretending to like them in the vain hope of making some sort of connection. Overall, I am just feeling bad for myself today.

A New Year

It is the beginning of a New Year and I have decided not to make any major resolutions. Instead, this year I am going to make a pledge each morning to be the best person I can be, for that day. I am also going to take a little better care of myself. I also swear that I will be coming to WV for a long weekend of tomato soup, game playing and drinking and I will drag Dave along with me.

Christmas Party

Sooo, we had out first "party" since the addition was finished. This was a holiday party Saturday night. Some of my cousins were in town, Dave had some friends from work come down and we some of our local friends also stopped by. There was tons of food and booze. Somehow I became one of the drunkest people there. Dave made my drinks too strong, darn him! My cousin, (known as cupcake by some readers of this blog), was definitely also very toasted, despite his denial. A good time was had by all and I can say that our first real party was a success. Oh, and for the record Dave also drank a lot and had a hangover, which I managed to avoid. I am happy to be able to fit more than 2 people in my living room at a time now. In fact we comfortably had about 20 people in and out all evening. Yay us.

Sick Days

When you are a mommy there are no sick days. I have had a horrible cold for two days now and the girls are as hyper as ever. They try taking care of me with their little doctor kit but unfortunately it is not helping. I should miss the days when being sick meant spending the day in bed watching cheesey movies but there is something to be said for the tender ministries of loving toddlers. Of course, if they would let me take a long nap I think I would feel better faster. For now we will just cuddle on the couch and watch Dora until we drool. Maybe tomorrow I will feel well enough to play with them, but right now I will just be an observer into their world.

Candy Hangover

After the kids went to bed last night, Dave and I stayed up drinking beer, watching scary movies and raiding the kids trick or treat bags. Now I feel a little hungover and my tummy hurts. You would think an adult would know better, the kids each had one piece and went to bed. It is so hard to resist the overflowing candy bucket. Ah, the evils of trick or treat candy. I think it needs to find a new home!

Happy Halloween. I love this time of year. The leaves are changing and the air is crisp. It warmed up today so the girls can wear their cute dresses without coats. I love taking the kids trick or treating and then coming home to watch a movie and go through their (our) booty. The girls love handing out candy and seeing all the kids dressed up. This year, as a special treat, we are going trick or treating on boats at the marina, tomorrow night. I think that will be a lot of fun.
The one thing I miss since becoming a "grown up" is the annual WV Halloween party. We used to make it back but now there are too many kiddies to leave behind. It is just such a party where I first met my good friend Tracy and so Happy Anniversary to us. In the interest of protecting our ages I will not say how many, many, years ago that was. Today I will eat grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch!
I hope everyone has a safe and happily haunted night!
