Friday Night Leftovers

Thanks to Danifred for allowing this mental vomit...I don't know if she's actually doing FNL tonight b/c she's in beautiful sunny AZ, but I needed it, so I took it...thanks!




  • There are days that I'm left drooling like a mental patient.
  • 3-year old twins are no joke.
  • Husband and I have finally figured out the equation for years 3-4.

  • We have also figured out that he has more patience with Hailey and I have more patience with Matt.
  • This is probably because Hailey has my personality and Matt has Husband's personality.
  • All of this makes me hate myself a little...she's so damn stubborn.
  • She'll look me right in the eye, know she's wrong, and do it anyway.  I do that!  How obnoxious, right???
  • I can handle Matt b/c I've had several years of handling Husband.  Not that he's all that bad, but I've learned certain things...tricks, if you will.
  • I have no idea how to handle Hailey.
  • Nothing works with her.
  • Time-outs don't phase her.
  • She lets me take every damn "pal" out of her room without batting an eye.
  • She doesn't care if I take away privileges.
  • Nothing gets to her.
  • But I also can't just ignore it.  There is another set of eyes that are on me at all times...keeping track of what I do.

  • Okay, moving on...had a great weekend with my sister last weekend.
  • We ate wings.
  • We got manicures in a sahweet spa place.
  • We were sure that the nail technicians appreciated our "wing-y" fingers...gross, right?
  • We watched HGTV without any whining about Mickey and his damn Clubhouse.
  • We went grocery shopping...and kind of enjoyed it (but I always enjoy it when it involves Trader Joe's).
  • We tried on maternity jeans (well, I didn't, but I sure made her do it)!  I forgot how exhausting that is for a pregnant chick!
  • We stopped off at the Loft (of course I had a coupon...I'm addicted).
  • We showered late.
  • We rushed to get ready for her party.
  • We had a great time.
  • We slept.
  • We chilled.
  • We enjoyed each other immensely.
  • We realized that we couldn't remember the last time we'd just spent a weekend together.  Typically GG or husbands or Crazies are in the mix, but this time it was just us and it was heavenly (no offense to the others...it was just nice).
  • We had a killer Stella & Dot trunk show...two, as a matter of fact!
  • We quickly hugged good-bye at the airport.
  • We immediately realized how much we missed each other.
  • It was a great weekend.

  • The Crazies have gotten a few awesome Halloween packages...pictures to come!
  • We just finished decorating the inside of the house yesterday...just to take it all down on Tuesday.
  • Better late than never?
  • We have a busy day tomorrow.
  • The Crazies will be skipping nap.
  • Can you say "night terrors?"
  • Ugh.
  • I love bullet points.
  • I hate night terrors.
  • Any guesses as to what the Crazies are dressing up as?
  • Any guesses to how long it took me to rip open our Halloween candy after today's naptime fiasco?
  • I just typed "Halloweed."  That would be interesting.
