So...being the sweet, loving mother that I am, I had my daughter read just the title of my last blog. She got that expression on her face that said "I can't believe this is MY mother. I am so embarrassed and I'm going to kick her butt...in my head, cos you know, she's my mom so I can't really beat her up." Yeah, she's a teen so she can say all that with just a look. Meanwhile, her mouth is saying "open it. Open it." She wants to read the whole thing. Isn't it great that my daughter is SOOO interested in my blogs!
As she was reading, she would make comments like "I'm not little, compared to you." So I told her to keep reading (Yep, the next line in my blog is about her being bigger than me!) She was laughing by the time she finished reading it. So, at least she has a good sense of humor! Oh, and she says she doesn't want to owe me one! Too bad, so sad, boo hoo! Tee hee!!!

Or so I tell her often. She doesn't agree with me, but she is pretty darn happy with me right now. She's at the water park tonight with her friend for the friend's birthday. This morning, we went out to buy a birthday present. We also stopped at ShopKo to see if we could find some shorts to replace the ones she destroyed last week. Of course, since it is already the middle of July, only jeans and sweaters are on sale. Cos, you know, stores know best!
I told her that the best bet would be to look at clearance racks and no shorty shorts!!! Of course, the first three pairs she picks are shorty shorts. We finally find a couple of pairs that she is willing to try on. She REFUSES to leave the junior's section cos there is nuthin' cute in the "old ladies" section. Fine, whatev'! I'm not spending my money on something she won't wear. While she is in the dressing room, I keep looking for something she might like. Of course, I'll look in the "old ladies" section, cos I might find something for me! LOL!! Second or third rack I look at, what do you think I find? Yep, the exact style of shorts that she massacred earlier. Mmmm, hmmmm. Nuthin' cute in the old ladies section, huh? In your face little girl!! LOL!! (And, yeah, she's bigger than me, but she'll always be my little girl.)
Anyway...she was ECSTATIC that I found the shorts, in her size, on clearance and (and this is the best part), I was willing to pay for them! Yep, she owes me!
Next thing to save for? Football clinic for the boy ($45) and a trip to the Shoshone Ice Caves in August (probably about $100 with entrance, gas and food). I can do it!!

Tomorrow night, daughter is going to a water park with her best friend for a birthday party. DH has mentioned taking son to the "Hottest Movie of the Summer"! (Which, I guess, is Harry Potter.) I have not officially been invited to join the boys and I am having an internal debate about whether I want to be.
Pros of being invited:
Spend time with DH and son
See HP movie (like the books, movies are ok)
Pros of not:
I get to stay home by myself!
I could read
I would be home with only the dogs
I could Spark people with no interruptions
I would be alone
I could read
So, what do you think? Which option is better? Hmmmmm.....

So...today started out normally. Meeting at 8:30. Ten minutes into it, I get a page to see the e-mail and mtg notice for 9:00. Okay, fine. Leave 1st mtg, read e-mail, go to 2nd mtg. That one lasts a little over an hour and (of course) I get action items! It is now 10:20 and I have 40 minutes to do my "regular" work. Eleven o'clock, new mtg, lasts until one. Really fast lunch...more "regular" work. Three o'clock mtg, lasts until four. Regular work, 4:30 mtg. Lasts until after five. All mtgs (except the 8:30 one) was with the same group of people. Corporate needed info today for a mtg tomorrow. Can you say "Short Notice"?
Of course, I get home late and guess what?!? No, no one started dinner. I was hoping. I mean, that's what the menu is for, right? More running around to get dinner on and get ready for softball practice. I guess it's a good thing that practice was cut short (only two of us showed). Now I can get the rest of my work done so I can do it all again tomorrow!

are you really tired?
Yep, someone asked me that question today. And, after looking in the mirror, I had to agree...the circles under my eyes were HUGE! Guess that's what happens when you don't get enough sleep.
So, on that note, I'm going to sign off and get to bed earlier tonight...maybe even an hour earlier!!
