Never a dull moment
I swear to god, I haven't had a free moment in like 9 days. Okay, sorry god, I may have been exaggerating a little bit, but not by much. Have you ever wondered whether god cares if her/his name is capitalized when you're using it? Everyone knows you should capitalize it when you're taking her/his name in vain, but what about every day use? When I say "I swear to god" is that technically taking her/his name in vain? Do you think she/he gets upset when people type omg instead of OMG!?
Moving on. I've been having a really great time IRL, and I have been ignoring my cyber-friends as a result. I apologize for that, because you all are my world during the 99% of the time that I have nothing going on IRL. I haven't been commenting on your blogs, but I have been reading when possible. When possible meaning only at work last week when I was there, which wasn't very often.
The reason I could only access the interwebs at work was because SOMEBODY chewed through the network cable that links my computer in my bedroom to the modem in my son's bedroom. SOMEBODY couldn't get into her boy's room after I left for work on Monday morning and apparently had a hissy fit.
Fucking ridiculously cute bitch. It is a good thing she is so fucking cute, or I'd probably be pretty upset about the whole thing!
I took this call at work last Monday, "Um, mom? Yer, yer, you're not going to like this, but, um, the cable to your internet is completely severed...". Smart boy called me at work where I couldn't have a complete meltdown. I was limited on cash and time, so I went to Radio Shack and bought an incredibly expensive 25' network cable before I went home. Dammit! I needed a 50' cord! No time, no money!
Tuesday we had birthday dinner for both my son and my great-niece who were born on the same day. Wednesday was their actual birthday, and we all went to the beach together. Friday we hung out at one of my cousin's house to spend time with her sister and niece from out of town. I finally got my internet back up and running Friday night, but still had no time.
When my son got back from one of his friend's pool party, he brought 3 friends with him, and one more just showed up the next day. Saturday morning we all went to my company picnic at a local amusement park and had a fantastic day! I mean, awesome. I'm so lucky they let me hang out with them, I had a great time!
Saturday night, two of my son's friends went home, and one more came over. Have you ever smelled a gaggle of teenage boys? Helloooooo, soap and water do a much better job than AXE body spray! By the time the Febreeze cleared around 2:30 this afternoon, I had my house completely to myself. For the first time in I cannot tell you how long. My son is in New Hampshire for the next week, and I'm going to party like it's 1999.
Partying while cranking the Grateful Dead off youtube on my antiquated computer speakers while I put my laundry away, singing at the top of my lungs. I'm going to party so hard, I might have to take a nap in between the loads of laundry that need to be folded. I'm so badass, I'm going to see the new Harry Potter movie with my sister this week while my son is gone! That's right, Harry Potter. You can only wish you were as cool as I am...
