IT IS HERE!! MY VACATION!!

I mean, I'm not going anywhere or anything, but my CHILDREN ARE. I love them dearly. And having space for three days will help me remember that. :D

Yesterday my sister and BiL came up to hang for the day, and they brought me maybe one of the most awesome gifts I've ever been given, a massive chunk of mineral/crystal that she found at that fantastic shop I mentioned a while back (with the crazy taxidermy and corals and old medical models, etc.) Also with it was a Dr. Dre sticker pack (various quotes from songs in Old Timey print) and a helpful guide from our friends at The Christian Life Commission:

What Liquor Is Doing To The Home! Hahahaha. Did you know that "the invasion of the American home by beverage alcohol is not a natural outgrowth of our American culture?" The most powerful weapon against alcohol is a belief in Christ (there's my problem!) and I guess the council wants people to forget about Jesus making wine so parties were more awesome? So funny.

Also, today is when the Glee recaps come back! The episode today is FUNK, and that wasn't the best. By far. In fact, it was pretty head-scratching in some places. But now I have a whole litany of awesome 70s music playing, so that's a good thing. Also a good thing? The Chaka Khan martini I made up. DAMN, it is tasty. (I did have a lot of fun with my recap, though. I wish Quinn Fabray did have a Mother Popcorn tat.)

And as soon as the kids are gone (T-minus 1:48 and counting) I am going to jump in the pool, make a margarita, and have BLISSFUL SILENCE. Ahhh!

Is this where I refer you to AA again? Or maybe just invite you over to share the vodka coolers I have sitting in my fridge.

Ha ha! I'm a HUGE boozer, why, last night I had a FULL GLASS OF MARGARITA. And? I drank the whole thing.

Mmmm, vodka coolers.

Kids can be so wonderful. Worked with a lot of them when I worked in a Middle School. But sometimes when they go away for a bit it is just BLISS!

Glad your vacation is starting! Your kids seem awesome, but they are kids and EVERY kid can induce a constant state of GAH! once in a while - LOL!

Yay for VACATION TIEMS away from the kids. \o/

I also wanted to thank you again for the chocolate chip cookie recipe. The first time I made it it didn't turn out right, but the second time it came out divine. I brought some of the cookies to work and they were a hit. So thank you for sharing your amazing skills! :)

Oh, I'm sorry that first batch didn't turn out, that frustrates the hell out of me when it happens. But yay for the kinks working out!

I hope they remember to put your children in front of doorways so they remember they are loved!

Enjoy the vacation!

Pfft, they'll probably drop them in beds, or something, like we're poor. THEY NEVER LISTEN TO ME.

Thank you!! <3

YAY.

I didn't, because he didn't come! (And man, when neither FiL or The Mr. are around, MiL is NOT interested in talking to me at all. Dude. O_O

I'll find out on Sat. when we go pick up the bambinos.

Also, thinking of lunch tomorrow? Email me if you can

:D

You don't know me (except for maybe I commented on the Sparklepeen posts), but I found you through Sam, and I love reading your posts. You're such an intelligent, kind, diverse lady that I wanna be your friend and totally not in the way that involves me creeping on your through your Internet windows, while mouthbreathing in your Internet shrubs.

In other words HI.

One of the things I love the most about your journal is getting the perspective of a mom about her kids. It's a fantastically complicated relationship, even in the best of families, and even though I'm 24 and am old enough to have my own babies, it helps me understand how my Mom acts towards me.

Also I like your balance and sense of humor. Why yes I have been indeed internet stalking you for a while, please don't be alarmed while I polish the fog from my breath off your window pane no wait don't call the cops

OMG YOU CAN COME INTO MY INTERNET SUN ROOM AND I WILL MAKE YOU INTERNET TEA. Not coffee, because that's for internet lovers. We're not there yet.

Also? That is the nicest thing ever, and I want to cross stitch that paragraph about moms onto a pillow, and I'm kinda not joking.

Any friend of Sam's is an internet friend of mine. HELLO.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
