You are my best friend and my worst enemy. I wish I knew how to handle you a little better - then I may not come off as a whack job somedays. But luckily you know my better than anyone else - you have known me forever and still come back looking for more.

Yes you're in the friend zone... but not by totaly choice but more for necessity. I honestly don't think that I belong on that pedestal that you place me on - but I'll tell you it's great to be there!

Sure my husband loves me and tells me I'm beautiful etc but it's great to hear you look good from someone else!

I just want to say thanks for being there for me all these years!

So let me get this straight - my husband has two sisters and a brother... he's the oldest of four. SIL A lives about a mile from my MIL we live about 10. SIL B lives about 2 hours away and BIL C Lives in an entirely different state!

SIL A along with BIL A and 2 kids are thinking about moving to the state where BIL C lives... ok whatever - they never really stay in one place too long so thats fine. Though I'll be sad to see the boys go! DD LOVES her cousins and would hate to have them too far away.

SIL B has now decided with her dopey husband and equally dopey kid to move near BIL C as well... well I say BIL C but it's really closer to her husbands brother... but it's all the same state!
That leaves us here with the IL's... which I don't mind - we were here first BUT my poor kids will be the ones that are growing up not knowing their cousins... the same worry that SIL C has vocalized to the family.

It's not a big deal and I'm not that attached to SIL B's Kid honestly (thats a WHOLE 'nother entry) and BIL/SIL C are expecting their first and while we have never gotten along great I am ESTATIC for them, I can't wait to have that little niece to spoil some! And the boys - well they are the best and I will miss their quirkiness if/when they move.

Here's the thing that bothers me about ALL of this- I found out all about this on a message board! A MESSAGE BOARD!!! One that my mil posts to... friends she's only met a few times.... but yet she can pour the family news out to them and not her own family... SHEESH!

Why is it...

That I can hold down a full time job, be pregnant/have a newborn, have a social life, go to school full time and get good grades. Yet I have a "friend" that complains I don't make time for her but can't seem to get her act straight - complains that she wants to do well in school but that "summer school is so stressful" (it's TWO classes) and she has so much to do that we can't get together. YET she plans to go out with some other friends on a gambling boat and takes 3 - 4 hour naps on the weekends while she's supposed to be working on school! WTF? I just don't get the lack of motivation from some people. I know if I (the biggest procrastinator on earth) can do it so can others. It just irritates me to see someone who is a preschool teacher - someone who is trying to make kids grown up to be happy healthy adults blah blah blah - be so lazy and unmotivated. UGH!!!!

Vent over - back to your regularly scheduled blogging.

I haven't had much to say lately - it's been pretty busy around here but at the same time pretty quiet. Just the normal mundane life things I guess. Work is great I still love this job and I really enjoy being here. The people I work with are great and as cheesey as it sounds it's a true team feeling.

The 4th of July Holiday was about as good as it could get on a rainy Florida day. We ended up goofing around the house until almost 4 I was actually trying to get chores accomplished and DH and the kids - well I'm not sure what it was they were trying to accomplish other than driving me batty. We then headed to MIL's for awhile and hung out at the little grille area by the lake. It was a good time and DD had a BLAST! Most time's she doesn't fall asleep on that short ten minute ride home but she was out cold by the time we left the subdivision.

This weekend is a trip to my mom's, my SIL's 7-7-07 party and who know's what other trouble we may get into. Again another busy weekend!

We have another cruise booked for October, we will be spending halloween on the seas. Should be a great time for the kids and I can't wait to see what they have planned for them. I asked DD what she wanted to be for halloween and I got this answer "Glenda - well first I want to be glenda, then cinderella and then a pirate" Ummm not all in one night I hope!
That's whats up in my crazy little family.

As far as friends go... I have a new one... well she and I are kinda friends - she's the kind of friend you talk to but you don't tell anything to. If that makes any sense. She's a great girl but she just seems to have focusing, multi tasking issues. She's going to school and taking classes this summer. Seems like she didn't realize that signing up for summer classes meant you get all the work of a regular semester in half the time. And she's stressed. I personally loved those classes I did better in them because it was less time that I had to retain the information and I like working at the faster pace. Well recently she complained that we haven't seen each other in awhile etc etc etc. So we planned lunch for today. Guess who forgot because she's sooo stressed out over school and forgot. I was bummed to no end. I was kinda looking forward to it. But oh well, maybe next time. On the brighter side maybe I will take a full hour out of the office and head to joann's or something and see what kinda trouble I can get into there. (HAHAHA As if thats a problem!).

Don't know if anyone really reads this thing - so if you do please leave me a little love!
