Since the holidays ended and I came back to work I have felt just slightly pushed. It tends to be that way. I don't have quite enough to do and I am mildly bored or I am moving grudgingly towards being stressfully overloaded. Possibly, just possibly, it is something I am doing wrong...some sort of balancing thing that I am lacking. Or perhaps it is just the nature of work and life.
Anyway, I wanted to catch up a little here. I never got to mention anything about Girlie Girl's birthday. She turned 15 last Friday, the 4th. We had her family dinner on Thursday, she went to a friend's house for a little gathering and overnighter on her actual birthday, and then on Saturday she and I hosted a small celebration at our house. Fortunately, WTG and Handsome Lad cleared out of town. Well, of course I wouldn't have minded Handsome Lad, but WTG did well to be gone. I treated Girlie and three of her friends to a movie and then dinner. Naturally I didn't accompany them. How uncool would that be for a 15 year old?!?! I simply provided the ride and the funding. After I picked them up at the restaurant, I brought them home for a bit of screaming and giggling time. Girls are much LOUDER than boys I find, at least at this age. Finally, they decided they were ready to go TPing. I promised to take them, but I swear, never again. Back in the day, TPing was fun. My friends and I did it as a friendly gesture on birthdays and things (whatever). Now it seems...different. The girls obsessed about getting caught and police and hard feelings. What is fun about that? Well, they did seem to enjoy themselves, but I certainly did not. Never again I tell you! Oh, yeah, and while this was going on, it was raining on and off. Yuck, really. But they somehow had a fabulous time. After those shenanigans I went off to an uneasy sleep. Through my sleep, I heard at least some of them up all night long. I am so glad THAT is over for another year. haha!
What else has been going on?
Lets see...WTG found out today he got another job finally. That is quite a relief. I just hope this one lasts and that he can find some kind of way to enjoy it somewhat. People who hate their jobs are so freaking miserable to be around. (Except you, Evil-E - heh heh!)
What else, what else...um, hoping to see Team C tomorrow. Yay!
Then, I will work on Saturday, where I am looking forward to posting my HMMMM pictures, either before or after doing my Anansi Storytime Special for my lovely young library patrons.
Right now, I am blogging and finding it quite relaxing. Alas now I must get back to die-cutting about 80 more round black spider bodies...let the good times roll!
