Weekend Wrap-up

Well Friday night was not the night to finish reading Black Heels to Tractor Wheels but that was ok. I had lots of fun chatting with the girls at T's house. Got home later than I expected and hung out with my new man for a little while and then crashed. Saturday morning I got up and drove up to get my babies. They left on Thursday to go camping with Grandma and Grandpa and by Saturday morning I needed them home! We stayed up for a bit and then headed home. Both boys fell asleep in the car on the way home. We actually got home pretty early and just hung out the rest of the evening. It was later that night when I decided to read a couple more chapters of the story. Well, that turned into a very long couple of chapters - I read the WHOLE thing and so loved it! I wish she would continue writing and make it a book for those of us that don't love our desk area as much as a comfy bed or couch. :)

Today was not my favorite day. Today I missed something very important and it breaks my heart. :( I missed it because I am not able. I missed it because it would make me sad to go. I missed it because I would say something completely inappropriate. I missed it because it wasn't supposed to be about me and I didn't want to make those I love uncomfortable. All those reasons SUCK! At the end of the day...I still missed it! It was something I never thought I would miss, something I haven't missed in six years, something that was always going to be mine to attend. So much for always. I know it was best for me and the boys to miss it (they don't actually know that we missed anything...thank GOD!) but it still didn't stop me from thinking about it all day or from randomly crying about it and the unfairness of it all. I mean, didn't we all read in the handbook that life was always fair and everyone got exactly what they deserved? No...well suddenly it all make sense! It isn't the first thing I missed in the last year and I would love to say it will be the last but I doubt it. The "big" thing that I AM NOT going to miss has been postponed another year and I will be ready whenever it happens. I AM in no way making light of what I missed today and I know that I SUCK for it but it just is what it is. BLAH!

The highlight of my day? I killed a GIANT brown recluse in my backyard! How you ask? Well, I first tried to drown him and that didn't work. My fear was he would get away again so when he got back out on the patio I threw a large cookie sheet over him and danced around on it. I am sure that was a completely ridiculous way to accomplish a small task but it worked and he is dead. HOORAY!

Tomorrow MK comes and I can't wait. School starts in a couple of days - I can't believe summer is over. Both the boys got the teachers they were hoping for so that is great news. Did I mention MK comes tomorrow?


  1. Good for you, killing the spider. I just run away and get the hubby to do it for me.

  2. I used to put cups, shoes, boxes, whatever, over the big nasty brown recluses (I called them Wolf Spiders) and let my dad handle the rest. I'm proud of you for killing it, but sorry for your cookie sheet.

    And whatever you missed, I'm sorry, but don't feel bad because you're awesome and you deserve only the best!
