Thanks! Though, by that time, I was totally wiped. No meltdowns, but I had to take Tylenol for a wicked headache, which you know is bad, because I don't get headaches. Steve did not do the water heater because it was 7pm by that time (the party was supposed to end at 5) and he would have had to drain the water heater, then run to Lowe's or Home Depot to get new elements (if they're even open that late), then come back and switch them out, and my hose was frozen anyway from being outside.
And I would never, ever have been able to handle any more company later than it already was. I'm a pumpkin by like 7pm these days. Srsly, I'm in bed by like 8. I told ds he could stay up till 9, but in his room and QUIET, and I went to bed.
All in all, though, the party was a rousing success
I think I may have sort of figured out the non-invited-kid dilemma. He had a paper invitation! I think one of the two who didn't show up-- probably the boy who ds had a problem with at HIS party two weeks ago-- passed on the invitation, probably in disgust. I'm so sorry that my boy and this other boy aren't getting along, and I'm really dismayed to find that the mom had a snotty streak, but whatever. We can't have everybody like us.
DS loved my present. He opened it this morning. I got him a new (to him) backpack chock-full of survival stuff: folding mini shovel, two flashlights, The Tracker by Tom Brown, Jr, a wilderness survival guide and also a book, a big ball of jute twine, a fake leatherman tool (a cheapie), a whole bunch of other stuff, and a REAL Swiss Army Knife *shudder*

you ever wonder about your parents? i think that maybe my mom doesn't like to see me happy and content. when i am stressed, upset and unhappy she seems like she is happy, but when i am happy and feeling great she can be so b!tchy to me and my family. sorta twisted.
Sheesh indeed! Um, hello, where's the casserole?
Yeah, I wonder, too. My mom just thinks I'm a nutcase because I march to a different drummer. And it pisses her off no end.

Well...thank you, I think I am again, as y'all know, sexually active again, and I would DIE if I got pregnant now. Especially since M is Catholic and he would never, ever condone terminating. Which, at my age, I would not hesitate to do, sorry to say. So, no, I do not want that to happen At.All.
Um...found out you were pregnant with me? That was a silly typo! LOL!
DOK, this hcg protocol really works wonders, and it's done wonders for my self-esteem since losing the weight I've lost so far...maybe go over and peruse the thread that M3M started? I did lots and lots of reading before I plunged in, but since you cook separately for you and Roo anyway, maybe you could think about it?

Ye Gods, y'all should see my driveway. And the empty lot next door, which some of it is part of my driveway. It's a mudpit. It's kind of fun to slip and slide on the way to the road, but it'd really s*ck if I slid *into* the road, plus, my car is just covered in mud till it all dries up. I really want to wash it, but there's no point till like....May.
Flaming something...they're all made with alcohol, no?
