YOU KNEW I'D BE BACK

Don't worry - I didn't succumb to the evil green onion e coli rampage. I've just been extremely busy the last week, I haven't had time to even think about putting together any tangible thoughts. But I'm back now - so all is good.

Since I left off, me and the hubby got the Guitar Hero package. We spent Friday and Saturday night jamming. I had to laugh at how addictive this game actually is. That and me and Jarrett have a "friendly" competitive nature between us. Actually he kicked my ass in most face offs. The only time I could kick his when it was a complicated song like Santana or Metallica's "One". I told him this means I have more raw talent. Plus he played before when I hadn't - it's no wonder he dominated. His friend's found out that we have it, and actually invited themselves over this week-end. Not sure how that happened: seems one guy said "Hey I'll come jam with you" and then texted another one to join in. I said, "Wow nice of them to let us know they are coming". Sheesh! You will laugh when I tell you that I decorated my guitar not with the standard rock n roll stickers that come with the set, but rather with Karis' Hello Kitty stickers. Yes you read right - I put Hello Kitty all over my guitar! So I'd like to see the look on the guy's faces when one of them is forced to play on the Hello Kitty guitar. It may be a little immasculating. I think it's funny as hell. I might even offer to paint their toenails when they are between sets.

Sunday afternoon I was invited to a friend's house and she had a spa party. It consisted of new age tranquil music, a glass of white wine, and a facial, and hand and foot treatments! AHHHHH!!!!! My pores are refined, my face is dermabraised and supple, my hands look like I don't wash dishes, and my feet don't look like cloven hooves. All in all, it was a good time. PLUS I didn't have to contend with any children whatsoever! Of course the ackward part was at the end, when the hostess was trying to pimp out all the products. I loved the line, "All these products are valued at $650.00 - but if you buy into the plan, you can get it all for $150.00". I mean c'mon! I'm more than happy to go to London Drug and buy my Vichy stuff. And I'm not so old yet that I need special cream for crow's feet. Give me some time before that phase of my life. I jokingly said, "Whatever a cream can't fix, botox can". Watch, the next invite I'll get will be to a Botox party.

The girls will be out on Spring Break starting in T minus two days. Ahhhhh, 13 glorious days in a row with my children. I sound like a cold-hearted bitch. Actually I'm at a loss how I'll occupy Kierra that whole time. Whenever she's bored, she gets busy. Busy to her means being destructive and making me want to hit the liquor cabinet. Jarrett was kind enough to take a day off to help break it up a bit. I was initially hoping to go to my parents for Easter/Spring Break, but when that plan fell through, I knew I was going to have to go solo.

Anyways, that's about it for me. I'm trying to think of reasons why I shouldn't make the trip to the dry cleaners to drop off Jarrett's shirts, but since I can't - I best be on my way. Cheers!

I too am dreading the whole Spring Break (starts this Friday and runs all next week)... and to top it off SB was home sick today and will be home for at least another day ... basically 2 straight weeks ... I'm supposed to be staying off my feet and simultaneously entertaining him .... great combo, I tell ya.

Am I a very bad mother because I am dreading Liv's school break too? She is off this week on Thursday and Friday for parent/teacher conferences and then the first week of April for Spring break.

And...I am already dreading this. I really LOVE my "alone" pockets during the day. During Summer break, the first couple of weeks, I am generally shell shocked and then get used to having no time whatsoever for myself. Then school begins again and the first two weeks I can hardly believe that I actually have time to sit down BY MYSELF. I quickly acclimate, though...VERY quickly.

I'm glad you're better, chum.

Howz spring break going? 13 days is a long time.

As for the dry cleaning, no free pick up/delivery? That would make me sad.

I totally SUCK at Guitar Hero. The fake-video-crowd starts booing me off the stage every time.
it's pathetic really....

Spa Party...sounded WONDERFUL until I heard the part about them trying to sell the stuff. I HATE parties like that. I avoid them at all cost b/c I feel bad not buying anything.
