Okay, things are getting ugly over here with my blogs, only in terms of staying on top of things, that is. It seems like it doesn't take much to let things slide, and suddenly I'm way behind. Bummer, but such is life. You can't dwell on it, because you end up just wasting time dwelling on it.
I called the cell phone company to complain about our free cell phone, only to learn that the problem with it, of course, is my fault. Somehow, that doesn't come as much of a surprise. Besides, how do you complain about something that's free... sort of? It turns out we hadn't charged the thing enough, and when the woman on the help line explained this to me, I could hear the disdain in her voice concerning what a total loser I was for not trying that one out.
Oh well, it just goes to show you, you can run from your shortcomings, but you can't hide.
One other notes, we had a really nice weekend, albeit two weekends ago, bearing in mind that I'm really behind here. We went to a birthday party at DCC&S', it was CH's big day. The party was very mellow and low key, and the kids had a blast. In a testament to what a great kid he is, C ended up as the master of ceremonies, and he pretty much ran the whole thing. Made it easy for mom and dad.
I felt sort of bad because when we have playdates, it's usually a time when CH (the mom) and I chat about homeschooling and share parenting war stories, but we ended up dropping the kids off for two reasons. One, I had a ton of stuff to do at home, none of which I was able to finish. And two (more importantly), we think it's good for the kids to have fun with mom and dad hovering over them. We spend a lot of time together, and I'm an overbearing parent, so it's good for everyone involved, a part of growing up as, they say.
A&N had a really nice time, ate lots of junk food, and that was our day. What more could you ask for?
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Michal Ufniak and COFFY | MOTIONDESIGN
