Advice to the Single Ladies

Last night hubby and I went t0 a wine tasting at a local wine/beer shop. I wore the t shirt hubby gave me for my birthday - an orange Florida Gators tshirt. In less than 15 minutes, 3 men had made comments about my shirt - 1 said "Go Gators" and the other 2 struck up full conversations. Single ladies - run to the nearest sport shop and get yourself a tshirt! Seems to be a great conversation starter and a great way to meet men!

Stupid is as stupid does

Went to Costco today after work. Had a car load of "stuff." Decided it would be easier to unload the car if I were to back in the driveway.

I hit the mailbox.

My car now has a huge dent with scratches on the back hatch.

My daughter may have heard me say a few not so nice words.

I am now drinking a Blue Moon and all is better . . . but my car still has a HUGE freakin' dent in it - UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Man

Meet Chris Cooley a/k/a The Man . . .
Just look at that tight end . . . oops, I mean he plays tight end :-) Hubby and I spent the day at Redskins Training Camp for Fan Appreciation Day. I was literally feet away from Cooley's wife so I had to keep my stalkerish behavior to a minimum. Ahh . . . can't wait for football to start!!! Go Skins and Gators!!

Weekend Recap

Let me start off by saying, I survived!! A little bit of everything happened during our whirlwind birthday bash weekend . . .

  1. Hubby called the police on our neighbor. We are really starting to think she is providing "services" to gentlemen at her house and so while she is busy "entertaining" her friends, her autistic son has been getting out of the house and running down the street trying to get into neighbor's houses or this time he was hanging out the second floor window with no screen in it.
  2. Bought my very first Coach bag (at the age of 42!!)
  3. Bought my daughter her very first Coach bag (at the age of 13 - what the?!! Can you say SPOIL-ED!! But at least we were at the Coach outlet and I had a coupon)
  4. Ate out every night 4 nights straight
  5. Because of the above, managed to gain at least 5 pounds
  6. Haven't heard a peep from realtors wanting to show our house for a month. Found out Saturday night at 8:30 pm that they wanted to show the house Sunday morning (daughter's birthday) at 10:30 a.m. Stress level just shot up.
  7. Successfully managed to get to The Cheesecake Factory, eat dinner, and return home with 5 teenagers
  8. Cleaned up vomit that was EVERYWHERE in the downstairs bathroom (seems one of daughter's friends had a little too much pizza and then junk food and then didn't make it to the toilet)
  9. Took 4 teenagers to Kings Dominion and didn't lose any of them
  10. Found out while at Kings Dominion that another family wanted to come see the house that evening. Do you know what a house looks like after 4 teenagers have stayed up all night for a sleepover?? And then I was afraid that the bathroom may still smell. Yep. Hubby quickly cleaned house. We got home from Kings Dominion at 6pm, girls were picked up by parents, and we were out by 6:45. At this point I just wanted to collaspe and take a shower
  11. Returned to work Tuesday to get some rest
  12. Told my daughter not to expect much for her 14th and 15th birthdays

But it was all worth it, because daughter and friends had a great time and that's what matters.

Calm before the storm

Ahh, it's quiet . . . waiting for the girls to wake up and get ready for Kings Dominion. We've had a good time, but I'm going to need a day off to recuperate from everything!
