Happy New Year!

Loads of folks seem to party it up on New Year's Eve.

I overheard many people today at work talking about their plans for this evening.


When I was young I was never one for going out and getting crazy.

And that basic tradition has continue now that I'm married with kids.

We're back

Home again...home again...jig-a-dee-jig!!!


We're home!

We've been away for a little bit.

The Hubby came in on an airplane last Wednesday.

We drove out together on Thursday out to where his parents live.


We didn't stay at his parents house.

We stayed at a hotel like we normally do.

When it rains, it pours

It's been raining, raining, raining down here in Southern California.

This part of the state is not made to handle a ton of water.


It's strange because we're right next to the Pacific Ocean.

SoCal is not built to handle lots of rain.

The streets are slick.

The lanes aren't marked very well.

There's tons of construction making the roadways wider.

It's pretty much a nightmare driving to and from work.

Short week for me

My kids started their Christmas vacation on Friday evening.

They'll be out of school for two whole weeks.


I'll be at work tomorrow.

I'll be at work on Tuesday.

I'll be at work on Wednesday.

But that's it!

Lazy days are good

You know what I'm talking about, right?

Today wasn't the most beautiful day outside.

Cloudy? Check.

Drizzly? Check.

Cold? Check.

And there were a couple loads of laundry that I needed to get completed.

It was the perfect day to stay home. ALL. DAY.

The possibility of good news

I had a brief conversation with the Hubby while I was at work today. I just wanted to let him know that I was emailing some paperwork that he wanted.

He let me know that he was just about to step out and take his staff out for a holiday lunch.

He kind of hemmed and hawed on the phone like he wanted to tell me something.

I told him that I'd talk to him later if he was in a rush.

But he couldn't help it.

He spilled the beans.

Party or no party?

My friends and I have been talking about the holidays and what our companies are doing to celebrate the season.

One friend was lamenting about how his dress-up evening party didn't have an open bar.


He and his wife got to get dressed up for a date night.

They were getting a free dinner.

They had 3 drink coupons each.

I don't see a problem there.

Do you?

Life has bogged me down

Even though I haven't been updating in quite a while, I'm still here.

If I do get on the internet, I'm reading up on what's happening with you all.

I don't have the need to write anything right now.

My mind is cluttered.

So much to do.

Not enough time.

Just being a "single" parent has me busy, busy, busy.
