First time on here since December 26th, crazy! I think I just don't have time to get online and do this anymore. My son is 3 and a half now, my job is crazy, and I finally have a social life once again. Anyways.... here's a shameless plug that some of you have already seen through MySpace....
My birthday is this Saturday.... if interested please come down to Shooterz and celebrate with me, I'm turning 29, and I'm not having another party until I turn 39, so this is it people!
So yeah, maybe I'll see some of you on Saturday....
Friday... was supposed to go with Carley to a Christmas party. Got yelled at by my mother who was freaking out about the house being a mess instead. Snuck away when she went to bed (god, am I still 10?), and headed over to Therapy. Needed beer. Thank you Nick for the stiff drink, needed it bad.
Saturday... Got up and cleaned more. Grandparents arrived around noon. Snuck away with carley and my Luke to buy a few last minute gifts/ exchange gifts. She got Luke the most beautiful Spiderman blanket, and he won't let it down. I got a pink tinkerbell watch too, it may be pink, but somehow it is so me. The mall was beautiful. Luke was behaving, the stores were all open, had great company on top of it, but couldn't stay and do impulse buying because of the family. Stayed up til 2am that night assembling Luke's trampoline and scooter.
Sunday... could not wake up Luke! Christmas morning and the boy was out cold! Well, he stayed up all night coming in to me saying "Santa here yet mom?". he was so excited he wore himself out. Uncle brian ended up picking his sleepy head up and snuggling him, and when Luke saw him he said in a cute little sleepy voice "Uncle Brinan, me got you hot wheel" It was so sweet that he was more interested in what he got Brian than what Santa got him. then he went downstairs.....
So many toys, you'd think this house was Toys R Us. But he deserves it.
Thank you Uncle Brian for putting together the train table. You don't know how much me and my sore fingers appreciated that!
Carley came over for dinner. I'm glad she did too, it helped me cope with the Grandmother driving me nuts, not to mention I hated the thought of one of my best friends spending the first night of Hanukkah/ Christmas night alone. Thank you my love for coming over. You are always more than welcome at any time!!!
Monday... Recovered. grandparents left around 9 am. Luke and I played with his scooter, and his train set, and his trampoline, and baseball glove, and..... well you get the picture.
All in all it was a good weekend. Would have been better if some people had turned on their hearing aids so the TV didn't have to be on full blast, and we didn't have to say everything 20 million times. But ah well, what are families for anyways?
Hope all is well with all of you. And if you got any gift cards you don't want, I'll gladly take them off your hands! haha!
So I got my car back yesterday... and it dies last night. I can't go to work tomorrow now. And i can't afford to not work thanks to my car. I'm thinking about just ditching it and getting a lease on something. Anyone have experiences with leasing vehicles? let me know please, I'm not sure if it is a good deal or not..... Part says yes, part says no. Ugh!
Me poor little car over heated on the highway yesterday. After a tow truck ride, that I was not charged for, and being greeted by 4 mechanics as I stumbled out of the tow truck the verdict is now in. I have a broken thermostat, a melted thermostat housing, and clogged coolant hose, and a faulty water pump. Ouch! $711 for the repairs. And I'm sitting here wondering what in the world the previous owners of my little Volkswagen did, rather did not, do to this poor little car. VW's usually go forever! And this one still has under 60,000 miles on it, actually it was at 58,885 when I got to the repair shop yesterday.
On the bright side of things... my son was NOT with me when i was dead on the highway. And paying this bill is not breaking my bank account. And if i were still with my husband I know beyond a doubt that I'd have no way to pay for repairs. So even though this may suck, I am sure that I am still in a better place that i used to be.
Well, my mother, who has not really spoken to my father in 8 years other than when my son was born and at his last 2 birthday parties, has invited my grandmother (fathers side), and my dad over for Christmas morning so that my son can have a real Christmas. It actually put tears in my eyes when nobody was looking. I miss the old days still. And while i don't want them to get back together, I don't think they are good for each other, it is still nice to not have to choose between which parent I will be spending which part of the holiday with. I can, for one day, have everyone all together under one roof. Sometimes I guess family isn't so bad huh?
I think I may try my luck in some different places to hang out. I'm getting tired of going to the same places and seeing the same people all the time. It's getting boring. But where else can I go? The San Diego goth scene is kind of drowning right now, and I hate pop music and yuppies, and don't have time to drive to L.A. Ugh! Maybe I'll just go be a nun, that has as much excitement as my life does.
