And now for the much anticipated slumber party pics! This was the crew. Out of 10 invites, 8 showed up!! I guess when you offer a free night out for the parents with the package, the ratio of those attending improves! lol
(I just love the smile on my daughter's face in this one! Look how happy she is!! :)
They played "Just Dance Kids" on the Wii...
Made tie dye shirts :)
And played some other games like Dogopoly and bingo...
They really had a great time. I bet I could log the whole event as exercise though, boy was I constantly on the go! lol Thank goodness my mom was there to help me out! (well, for awhile!) She pointed out that it was just like some parties I had, where a couple of the girls paired off, there was some homesickness, and a little drama here and there. That's girls for ya! They definitely 'broke me in' with this party! lol! Right after I stopped the shrill screaming I was told "so and so" is crying, so I'd go and tend to them. I'd get that situation under control and then someone else would be needing something or crying! And then there was the incident with the markers! At first it was, we're just going to draw a mustache on the first person to fall asleep...then before I knew it they were drawing all over each other with the markers!! Ahhh!! LOL
My favorite part of the night was after everybody had gone to bed. I was sleeping (yeah right!) in the recliner (so that I could wake up easy if anyone needed anything) and heard someone go into my daughters room. So I get up to go check and see her quickly walking back downstairs. I said, "Is everything alright?" To which she replied, "Yep," and gave me a big hug. Then she said, "Mom, this party rocked!" THAT made it ALL worth it!!
LOL!! Don't show her mom that pic!!

Hey Spark friends! Just a quick update this morning. Ray (the bf) came over and we had another long talk last night. We are still 'separated'. I begged him to take me back last night and the other night too....for unhealthy reasons probably, but we've left things at this: He's going to work on him and I'm going to work on me. To build a stronger relationship we must build a stronger platform to start from. It's going to be hard, emotional, and stressful, but I think this could be the start of something great. We are capable of having a much healthier and loving relationship but we must work at it. It's not going to change over night and I need to just trust in God and in the path He is choosing to put us on. We've come to this point in our relationship for a reason, and I know that God is giving us an oppurtunity to build the most loving relationship of my life, not only with Ray but with myself! If I just follow Him and trust in Him, everything else will fall into place. I must learn to love myself and make peace with the demons that are holding me back. I am a bit scared and sad but I'm also determined. I WILL come out of this a stronger and more independent person! I WILL become the change I want to see!
