The rain hasn't stopped in two weeks. TWO WEEKS people. That is 14 days of cooped up kids, 14 days of ripping out my hair, 14 days of not going outside EVER. Pretty much hell on earth.
Last night we had to go to a fund raiser for Oldest's school at Chick-fil-a. So, it wasn't like pulling teeth to get the kids out the door for a change. However once we arrived the screeching started. Littlest can out-screech the best of 'em, and it makes you want to shove a rusty spoon in your eye. We didn't stay for too long, perhaps an hour tops- long enough for the kids to finish their dinner and play in the play area for a bit. It was time to go when Oldest came out of the play land and said it smelled like dirty wet socks. Once whiff confirmed it and I decided it wasn't worth the kids getting athlete's foot just to burn off energy. It smelled BAD.
This morning Oldest forgot to take his lunch to school with him, so Littlest and I had to run it up there. I figured that since I had to leave the house I might as well get dressed. I even put on makeup and heels. But not just any heels- my Shoe Dazzle, picked by Kim K, stylish kinda heels. They are silver, strappy, and the heels and platforms are silver snake skin. Who doesn't feel fabulous wearing silver snake skin? No one, thats who.
So after dropping of Oldest's lunch I decided to take Littlest out for lunch. Wasn't trusting the Chicky, prolly all stinky still. The only alternative for an indoor play land is McCrappies. Yeah, I went in there sporting my silver snake skins. All the other Moms were jealous, I could tell.
And then something remarkable happened, Webbers. Remarkable. Are you ready??
I met another Mom who:
1) recently moved to Ft Campbell and
2) has a kid the same age as Littlest and
3) she has no friends yet either.
Needless to say it was my Shoe Dazzles that sealed the deal. I know she was thinking that I had to be the coolest Mom in the area. Shoes tell a lot about a person and mine are screaming "HIPSTER."
She not only asked for my digits but also has volunteered her hubs to watch ALL THE KIDS so we can go work out. And by "work out" she means check out Dunbar Cave and see what their trails are like, so not really working out at all basically.
The stars have aligned themselves today. Bekum is already JEALOUS, and has informed me in no uncertain terms that I am NOT allowed to like my new friend and her punks more than I like her and baby Ty-Guy. All I can say to that one is "Duh" and guess what else? I won't like her more than Rabbit (BFF winner) or Mr. The Savage (BFF RU (Runner Up). I never forget the people who got me to where I am today. Even if it is just sporting Shoe Dazzles to McCrappies.
