After that.......

I went over to my friend Xangelle's house last night....went for a coffee and to drop off one of my daughters for the night and pick up one of hers.....you know the great exchange!! it was funny cuz we had to laugh at the kids "scheming" making desperate plans to get together something the 2 of us did our whole childhood. There were times when one would be at the other's house and the parent would call and be like " I am guessing Patti is there cuz....she isn't here!!" ya we used to get into trouble for that!! I have to say that it is really great that we have known each other our entire lives and now we have kids the same ages and they go to the same school and we go to the same church.....again...... I don't know many people here who have what we have.....and I love that we have it....

ok sorry getting sappy but hey I am allowed!!

So back to my coffee....it turned out to be a glass and a half of red wine....ya so I stayed till 1 am!! I wasn't drunk or anything like that but after low carbing it I was surprised that the wine hit me like it did and besides that I just love talking....do ya think??..... and we were having so much fun talking about everything!! J asked me when I got home what we talked about and I was like it was more of what we didn't talk about.

I forget though how much it hits you when you are over 30 and you stay up that late!!! like wow do I feel my age.....most of the time...mentally I still feel 18 and I am waiting for someone to tell me I really am not allowed to be having a mortgage and the kids.....well I can't believe I have 4 and my baby will be 4 next month!! eh gad...where did the time go? I know that is cliche to say but oh so true!!

I had to get up early today....well 9ish....to go visit my mom and dad with my sis Tam...it was really nice to visit them at their house. They are REALLY busy people and sort of live at their office and restaurant so it was nice to just sit with them and talk!

After I got home we headed out Easterly to check out the house that we looked at a couple of weeks ago.....it is still for sale....we had to laugh at the realtor who was like....oh this one won't last at all.....you better make an offer real soon.....pressure pressure pressure....I know it is their job but come on....relax the market isn't going to be slowing down anytime soon! We also drove past another house in the paper that is older but almost twice what our lot is here! I really would prefer the BRAND new house with real hardwood flooring and granite counter tops and soaker tub in master ensuite.....ahhhhhhhhhhh deep sigh come on people dream with me here!!! me living in a new house?!?!! oooooooohhhh man!!..... the older one being on such a huge lot!!! would have future development potential though and we could stand to make quite a profit.....so choices choices.....We still would like to look through some more places and as you all know my house isn't even listed yet...close but not yet......so we still have some time.

After that we went to Burger King and I ordered the Greek Salad....I forgot to weigh myself at Xangelle's last night so I will have to do that soon and let you know how much I have gained....I mean lost!!! ;-0 ok so I said I ORDERED the Greek Salad..... I never said I ATE the Greek Salad.....I tried I really really tried but it is Burger King for goodness sake....home of the whopper you know......I have NO will power really people I am weak and I need some serious help!

My hubby is so great cuz he always makes me feel better.....he told me I am not skinny, which he is thankful for cuz he doesn't like skinny.....even though he married skinny just didn't stay that way!!.....and I am not obese.....ok thanks for that....I feel much better now :- / .....so he tried to convince me to just go and get a whopper....I was like no I have resisted for 3 whole days in a row....I must stand strong....be strong for me.....I continued to try to eat my rabbit food...I mean my wonderful Greek Salad....food of the gods.....and I was almost literally gagging....he handed $$ to Morgan and told her to go get me a whopper....I ate it....the WHOLE thing.....it is still making it's presence known in my stomach and I am sure will let me know oh it's...um.....departure......but eating it for the 5 seconds....I mean 15 minutes it took me to slowly chew it and enjoy the dripping grease.....pause...eyes closed...remembering....ok I am good now.... ya guilt guilt guilt....I will try better again tomorrow!!

After that we took the kids to see "the Wild" but it was SOLD out....Hailey had a little accident in the bathroom and I had to put her in Emily's pj's that were in the van ...which she was so embarrassed about...poor little thing....I told her how I did that when I was 5...couldn't get the button undone and ended up peeing myself and the boy I liked actually stuck his head in the bathroom door at the school/church basement (yes I went to one of "those" schools) and said "did you really pee yourself?" I was mortified and my Uncle had to drive me home 20 min away to get changed and he wouldn't let me sit on his seat so I had to kneel backwards over the front seat!!! nice eh!! ~ she felt better that her mom wouldn't be so cruel and was understanding!! anywoo we ended up watching ICE AGE 2 which was really good even though we were 3rd row from the front!! the place was packed. guess the ones who went to see the wild spilled over to Ice Age 2 when it sold out. We really liked it, it was really cute and funny!

wow I really am into the long blog's these days......woot woot for all you who actually read it all through!!

ok I just did my spell check and it brought up peeing as not found and the suggestion it gave....penis......ummmmm no I meant peeing! is that not a word???

Too cute. You are so lucky to have friends with kids the same ages. That is a blessing. The other blessing is that they live close by. My best friends are actually over an hour away. I am starting to make more friends where I am but I guess that will happen more when the kids actually start school. Good luck with the diet thing. I love BK too..that would have been hard for me to sit with a salad while the family eats Whoppers. I can drive through McD's and get a Happy Meal for my son but BK would be a different story. It sounds like a very productive day.

It is really nice that you still have that connection with someone you frew up with. My best friend lives almost 2 hours away, we visit whenever someone has a baby!!

I really can't eat BK anymore. It dosen't settle with my stomach right anymore...

Were you high on coffee when you wrote this?! ;-)

My tummy can't handle greasy burgers where ever they come from. I remember when I returned from living in Japan, I couldn't even stand driving by those places I could smell the grease so bad. When Mom came to visit me, she smelled like sour milk and grease - our great North American diet... seeping through our pours... yummy!!
