Tidbit Round-up

I went out for our quarterly Girl's Night with my girlfriends last week. While I was waiting for them to arrive, I was hit on by a man. I know! Pick yourself up off the floor and keep reading. This man, was unfortunately SIXTY years old. This drunken, squinty-eyed man was stumbling into tables and would spontaneously break into song, bastardizing the Beatles and Elton John. It was frightening and annoying and looking back on the situation I would have been a rude bitch to they guy from the word go had I known he was going to hang around the entire evening. Now, mind you, it is not that I want to be hit on by anyone other than my husband, but a girl likes to know she's still got it, whatever "it" may be. I apparently do and it is aging and moldy.

Sam's swim lessons are coming along, well, swimmingly. He is improving every day and yet I still can't believe we have 25 more lessons before this is over. Can you tell I'm growing tired of the daily trek to the pool?

Rob and I are going to attempt to make a headboard for our bed this weekend. We have decided to go with the upholstered headboard style and picked out the design and fabric of our liking. I think the padded headboard will serve me well for evenings when I've had too much of my job and need a good head banging.

I bought two pairs of espadrilles last week. One pair is all stripey and has ties that go around my ankles and I'm not sure if they're cutting edge cute or way ugly, but I'm going to go with the cute theory until one of my girlfriends has the guts to tell me to take them off and never wear them again.

I was not able to sign up for the Danskin Triathlon this year. I was very much anticipating doing this race again, but alas it filled up in two days and I missed the boat. SO! Instead my husband is taking me to the lovely Leu Gardens for the Spring Moon stroll which consists of sitting amidst beautiful botanical gardens, while sipping wine and groovin' to live Jazz. I had to miss out on the Moon Stroll last year because the triathlon was the following morning. But THIS YEAR I plan on packing my picnic basket, plopping my butt down on the grass and polishing off a bottle of wine myself! AND! Since the Moon Stroll falls on the day between my birthday and Mother's Day, Rob is thrilled he can wrap my gifts up in one evening and exclaim, "Happy Mother's Day, Birthday Girl!"

Rob and I have planned a trip to New York in mid-May. We're super excited about the trip as it is the first trip we've planned since our Honeymoon. We're due!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I got a new car.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Sam can climb up on our glider chair now which he does often and rocks himself while he watches Noggin. I hate to have to break it to him, but we're going to sell that lovely glider chair so we can purchase a big fat recliner instead.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I've decided to never weigh myself again. End of story.

There is nothing else new to report. You've just read my entire life's happenings.

OH - and btw -- as for weighing yourself, don't let it get to you. i meant to tell you on Sat that you look GREAT! You looked fabulous in the cute little shorts and top. Who cares what number the scale says when you are looking like a hot mama!?!
