We’re blogging, we’re blogging


Wow, 11 days without a word. That may, quite possibly, be a new record.
Yea, verily doth I sucketh.
Tomorrow is the third birthday of my darling son. We plan to open presents in the morning and do lunch at Applebee’s (his choice) in the afternoon. Around 4:00 I’m taking off, bound for Tulsa, to see 1964 (yes, again). To those who have no children, or only one, this probably sounds horrible. To that I say: just wait until you have two (or more). [/evil laugh]
Seriously, though, we weren’t going to have a party for him, anyway. He’s a bit young to do the preschool-friend-party thing and we only have Robert’s dad and brother here for family. In my book four people doesn’t constitute a party. So the things that we are doing tomorrow are the exact things we’d have been doing if I had no plans to go anywhere. I will just be leaving at 4:00 instead of putting him to bed at 8:00.
I’m going to be staying the night up there while I’m at it. The show probably won’t be over until 10:00 and then it’s a two-hour drive home. Granted, I am never in bed before midnight, anyway — but there’s a vast difference between sitting on your couch till midnight and having to drive over pitch-dark country highways during that same time period. I came home after last year’s 8:00 concert up there and it was a tough drive because I really was tired. Therefore I decided to make a mommy trip of it. Saturday I will probably go to the movies and will definitely go shopping at Super Target. Mmm…..Super Target…..*drool*
Eh…what was I saying?
Oh yes, the birthday. I don’t think we’ll be doing a cake. I’m pretty sure they give a free dessert to birthday kids at Applebee’s, and it has a candle in it, so that will suffice. We have enough junk in the house right now, as it is, and Robert and I are supposed to start back to the weight loss thing on Monday, anyhow. I’m really looking forward to giving him his gifts. I was clueless about what to get him; we have both seen all the toys at Walmart a million times and nothing there seemed to catch his interest (or mine, either). So I went up to Toys R’ Us and found a bunch of great things that I think he will genuinely enjoy. Also I think Madalyn will like the items, which is a big plus as she’s kind of his only option for someone to play with.
By the way, our schedule for the rest of the summer is looking pretty booked. (Local people: this is not to be taken to mean I am unavailable for drinks, movies, cow tipping or carousing of other sorts. Call me. I mean it. I’m bored.)
This Sunday we are going down to Lake Texoma to spend the night and visit with family friends.
Madalyn has day camp July 10-14.
This one is super-cool: my best friend will be here from California from July 10th through the 26th! Well, not here. She will be in Tulsa for job training. I plan to spend time with her up there during the week then bring her down here for the weekends.
Then we will be heading to California somewhere around the 25th of July and be there until approximately August 18th — a mere few days before school starts again. This summer is just flying by. I can’t believe it.
There we are — not the most interesting of updates but it needed to be done. It is now 12:12 a.m. and I have three bags of gifts to wrap (read: stuff haphazardly into gift bags) so I must call this good and get my butt in gear.

I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Congrats on 3 years! Applebees has yummy cake! Sounds like you will be really busy this summer as well. We just got the vacation part over with but still have scouts, gymnastics, T-ball, and other junk going on like trying to sell our house. Ugh.
