Why yes, I’m aware it’s February… the 4th, right? It might even be Wednesday, but I’m too tempted to cheat andlook at my cell phone. However, because I practically skipped the entire month of January (andDecember, but I’ll get to that in a minute), I figured I’d do a tidy little review of my take on the previous month.
Jan 1st – 15th: Eh, nothing important that I can remember. The heating system crapped out on us, and we had to spend a night in a hotel, but it’s nothing anybody wants to read about.
Jan16th: Beginning of the end for Battlestar Galactica. Awesome, awesome, awesome show, Friday nights at 10pm eastern on SciFi. Still not over Tigh and Tyrol being Cylons, but they’re my favorite characters. Sorry Lee (you’re still HOTT!, though). Also the day we got the new heating system.
Jan 17th: Our 5th wedding anniversary. Yes, we have two anniversaries and celebrate them both.
Jan 20th: I’m still waiting for the rainbows and the unicorns and the waters to recede. Silly them, I stopped drinking kool-aide years ago. Played video games all day, and would have avoided the news completely if not for my mother-in-law. Damn her.
Jan 22nd: My grandfather’s 83rd birthday. Also my original due date – funny, because I was supposed to be a boy, and named after that grandfather.
Jan 27th: Sophie’s 6th birthday. Tried to take the kids out to Applebee’s sans Daddy, turned into a fiasco. Never visiting that location again - they’ve always been a bit flaky, but that day was ridiculous.
Jan 30th – Feb 1st: Celebrated Sophie’s birthday. Instead of spending a lot of money on throwing her a party, anddealing with a bunch of kindergartners and their parents, we opted to rent a hotel room at a resort hotel down the road at the Oceanfront. There’s two indoor pools, including one that has a cave and lazy river. It was just us – Mommy, Daddy, Sophie and the boys. We spent hours at the pool, and hours sleeping off the chlorine-induced haze… and best of all, the kids at free at the hotel restaurant! Thank you, Holiday Inn!
So there you have it. Oh, and about December… it sucked. It always does, and this past one is no exception. Also, I have all sorts of new reasons to gripe about my MiL… I mean, I love the woman, but something has changed. And I don’t like it one bit. So next time, be prepared for the story of the Doll, andhow I’m a bad mom because Sophie wants to be Sarah’s friend.
