Maybe i need to re-introduce myself?

I can’t believe I haven’t posted in so long! It just goes to show how my life has been lately. The kids are (thankfully) back in school, and even though they weren’t thrilled, I couldn’t help but get a little smile on my face as they walked through the school door Wednesday morning.

A few highlights (and low-lights) of the first week of 2007:

New Year’s Eve was highly uneventful. We spent the evening at home with the kids, eating good food and drinking pseudo-martini’s (7-up with Maraschino cherries in it) and sparkling grape juice. CJ and Diva were convinced they were going to stay up until midnight. I told them we’d see, but that I bet they wouldn’t make it past 10. CJ looked at the clock at 10:30 and said “See, mom! We can TOO make it past 10!” Which was followed by his head hitting the pillow and snoring.

Diva was even more determined that she would stay awake the whole time. We happened across MTV at 11:00 when they did the countdown live. Diva watched the ball drop, then looked over at me and said “Happy New Year, Mommy!” Which was followed by her head hitting the pillow and snoring.

New Year’s Day I finally got to watch the Rose parade for the first time in probably 5 years. I have always loved that parade. And I wanted to be the Rose Queen when I was old enough. It was also highly uneventful, until CJ insisted that I play his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory PS2 game. I’m telling you, this is the crappiest game ever. There’s no instruction on any of the levels, so you have to kind of “guess” how to advance. The graphics suck and everything that Charlie is supposed to use for weapons is a pain in the ass to control. But! I could not turn it off. I finally beat the stupid thing yesterday.

Tuesday was the kids’ last day off of school. We spent the day baking and reorganizing the Christmas toys that have still yet to find homes. When CB got home, we headed over to the neighboring town to take him to the Chiropractor, then went out for Chinese. I swear that I have the strangest kids in the world. Because you can take them to a Chinese buffet and they load up on things like Sesame Chicken and Beef with Broccoli, but try and get them to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and they look at you like you’re asking them to cut off a limb.

Wednesday was my first day back at work since last Friday. I had to stay longer than anticipated, but that was fine. When I was finished here, I went out to lunch and had coffee with some friends. Then it was back into the routine of music practice/Diva dance/my dance.

Thursday was very enlightening. I found out that Diva is kissing boys at school. Not just any boy, but the mean boy (who, by the by is HORRID! Mean! Disrespectful! Disobedient!) in class who pulls her hair and throws rocks at her (Oh, Lord, she’s already showing the same tasted in boys that I had.). But seriously, in Kindergarten?! I guess I shouldn’t be really THAT surprised because there is one girl in her class who is constantly saying that her “coochie” itches and there are other girls who are talking about where babies come from (like the REAL where babies come from. Not just “There’s a baby in Mommy’s tummy). How do you put the kibosh on this junk? She’s far too young to be worrying about all of it, and I do not have the wherewithal to deal with this crap yet. Oy.

So there you have it. To make up for not posting in so verra long, you have one verra, verra long post about absolutely nothing. And if you are still with me to this point, let me just say thank you.

New Year’s resolutions are successfully broken, and 2007 is shaping up to be far more interesting than 2006. So Happy 2007 to you all!

Also, for those of you keeping track: 25 more days until my birthday. Not that I expect anyone else to keep track other than me, but it’s good for me to have it written down. 

Sounds like a pretty good first week of the year. My New Years was similar, just add beer and a hangover. Yippee.

Glad to see that you survived the New Year. If it is any consolation, your was more exciting than mine! LOL

I don't even want to think about what my daughter will be doing/saying once she is in Kindergarten. Is it legal to lock her in her room until she is 18?
