I spent Friday evening in HELL. Err… Chuck E Cheese, same thing.. right? It was for a stupid fundraiser for little J’s stupid summer camp at the most stupid location they could have chosen. The past two years it was at Coldstone Creamery… a MUCH better choice in my mind! Either way, I was at the end of my sanity by the time we came home and drank away my sorrows with some old friends (they’re all named Miller Lite, strange!).
Yesterday the munchkin and I left home at 9:30am to take the 2 hour drive to Delaware for my friend’s baby shower. My matron of honor friend, that selfishly asked me to help throw her this baby shower 3 weeks after my wedding. Knowing full well that I am broker than broke and should NOT be spending money on an overpriced baby bath tub, shower decorations, game prizes, etc. Fuck. To top it off, she’s only 5 months pregnant! All this rush for a shower because she has an aunt visiting from Texas for the summer who begged to be involved in the shower.
She did the cupcakes and food. And showed up 5 minutes late. I won’t type all the mean things that went through my mind… but trust me when I say there were many variations of the words “fuck” and “you”.
Anyway. The party was great, the people had fun, the mom-to-be (for the THIRD time) was happy…. yay world peace and unicorns and fluffy bunnies!!!!! I digress, excuse me.
It is now 7:45pm on Sunday and I am still in the pajamas I wore to bed last night. All I can say is that you’re lucky the internet doesn’t have a smell feature yet! I’ve been so damn busy since we came home from the honeymoon that I haven’t really given my apartment a good thorough cleaning, so that’s what I did today. I prefer to clean in pajamas and unshowered, it feels more natural or some shit.
We also did some rearranging, cleaned out little J’s art studio (yes, my spoiled ass child has an entire room dedicated to her ART & MUSIC in addition to her damn bedroom), and picked out/ordered photos to include in our thank you cards. That still need to be purchased, and written… some other day though.
We ALSO cleaned out the bearded dragon’s tank which was an adventure and a half. Although I don’t think you lovely folks know that we now own two bearded dragons. That would be my husband’s impulse buy of the fucking summer, and their cuteness is the only reason I didn’t murder him on the spot! So they are pretty low maintenance but they SHIT everywhere and it’s nasty! Looks like bird shit!!!!
By the way, those fuckers are FAST. We put out a sheet in the living room and little J & I sat with them while J cleaned the tank. No way was I going to help. He wanted the dragons, he cleans their shit. Anyway…. they were crawling all over us then suddenly darted off the sheet in a flash! We were literally crawling around like drunk college chicks trying to keep up with these things! It was an interesting afternoon, for sure.
My favorite way to end a Sunday is by marinating in my own filth and watching America’s Got Talent with the family. And the cat, and the dragons. I hope Monday stays away for as long as possible!!!!!
