I’ve been doing taxes, my son’s, my oldest son’s girlfriend’s, friends of my sons, and getting started on mine.
My oldest son is getting married in June. She (his fiance) wants everyone, who can, to dress in black and white. Her flowers will probably be red roses.
I took my girls shopping the other day to look for black dresses. My oldest, the tomboy, had actually seen a dress in the mall that she liked… (this made me check to make sure the second coming wasn’t near) but, bad news was, when we got there, they only had 2 left and they weren’t her size. The clerk called headquarters to see if another store had it in stock. They told her that 3 other stores did… we called and either they were too stupid to find it, or too lazy (I vote for the second) but they all said, no.
That pissed her off and put her in a crabby mood. We ended up in Dillard’s. Me walking around asking, "What about this one?" "This one is cute." She disappeared for a few minutes, came back with a black dress and said, "Buy this one." I couldn’t see it on her, I couldn’t show her any others to consider. She was DONE.
In the mean time, my youngest has been trying on all kinds of black dresses… that were appropriate for a Vegas showgirl, or a high paid hooker (or as David says, a LOW priced hooker).
By the end of the day, we were all tired, cranky and ended up with one dress that I have no idea what it looks like on her (my oldest) and with me having to make one for my youngest because nothing that we could find was even close to being modest, or appropriate for a 12 year old.
I WAS, repeat WAS going to look for a dress for myself while we were out and about. That will have to wait. Preferably when I’m alone.
Are we having fun yet?
OH today has been a special day. One of my brothers and his wife had their baby this morning. She weighed 8lbs 4oz. This is their 5th child, 4 girls, 1 boy.
They are arguing about what to name her. I still haven’t heard the final results.
My friend Leah, (mamasbooties) that I went to Hawaii with, had her baby this morning.
A little girl 6lbs 14.5oz. She has a little boy, "Booties" who’s 3. He’s a big brother now!
Last I heard they were still trying to decide on the name (her and her ex-husband). I still haven’t heard the final results.
I’ve had my youngest home all week. They had, teacher something-or-others, and then parent teacher conferences. Normally she loves having some time off of school, but all her friends have been sick, so, we’ve watched lots, and lots of movies this week.
How did your week go?
OH, and a PS to Stephen, I crack you up??? What, you mean Law School isn’t keeping you in stitches? LOL It was good to hear from you. BIG HUGS, Steph
A big, Thank You to Bob, for finally making me add music! (and walking me through the whole process) lol Please let me know if this causes any problems. OK?
