WOO HOO! It's friday!
I think I'm going to go home and have myself a drink... something a little stronger than iced tea. We'd all been passing this stupid cold around, (Cherie, Maya sounds like she had what we've all had... ) so I want to just go home and relax, maybe watch a movie, and split a bottle of wine with the hubby. Sounds like a plan to me.
Oh, on the jello legs front... last night, hubby goes down to ride the bike, and he's back upstairs in about 3 mins it seems... he said the seat on the bike could be hazardous to "the Boys" health... I about fell over laughing! So, a little later, I went down to take a ride, and he had messed with the gears... I felt like I was pedaling thru tar! My legs were screaming after only 2 mins... I stuck it out for about 5, but thought I was gonna die! I might drop it back a bit... that was too much like a work out... LOL!
Oh, one more thing, what is it with these huge blow-out sweet 16 parties? Kay got another invite for one... they've rented a hall, are having it catered by the hall, and for what?! WHat's the big deal about your 16th birthday? It's not like it's some big life changing year... she's not turning 18, 21 or one of the other biggies... 30, 40, 50, you get the idea. Why do they insist on doing this? I guess I'm just annoyed because while I would have loved to have done that for her, I couldn't afford it. We can't swing driver's ed right now either... ($400 for someone to teach her how to drive! Even if she waits until she's 35, she still has to take driver's ed... and you know, teen accident rates haven't really dropped any... sheesh, what a scam.) I just might succeed in my goal to be the topic of more than one conversation on a therapist's couch... sigh...
