Good Times Had by ALL!

Musings of A Beautiful Mess
Spring break started Monday and I was TERRIFIED! I had visions of bored children and a stressed out me. But I was wrong! *YAY* It went well, we had a great time.

My in-laws wanted to take the kids on Thursday until Saturday. I made sure they REALLY wanted to do this because they don't usually do this. They did it with Nae, but that was before we had Zilla and it was just a night here or there. Apparently now that they are older, grandparents and children, it is something they want to do. So Husband took them over there yesterday. I got to stay home, BY MYSELF! It was nice. I got a few hours to do whatever I wanted to do. I didn't do anything exciting, but it was still very nice.

My best friend tells me they are going to be in town and want to stay here. I was a bit selfish at first because the kids were going to be gone and this was suppose to be MY time with just MY husband. We didn't have anything planned because we're boring like that, but STILL. I didn't want to entertain anyone. After I got over myself and stopped throwing a hissy fit, I realized it wasn't a big deal they stay here for ONE night. Sheesh, I'm not a very nice friend. I blame PMS and Mother Nature for her oh so lovely gift she chose to bestow on me THIS week...GGGRRR. Anyway..they came and we had a lot of fun!

We went out to dinner. Just the four of us. Like real grown ups. Then we came home with our beer and wine and started to drink. Even Husband had a few beers! He NEVER drinks. Apparently spending time in the Navy and drinking A LOT will give you an aversion to alcohol. So he had his beer, I and BFF had our wine and we proceeded to get a wee bit drunk. Well, I don't know if anyone else got drunk, but I sure did. Since we were all being the party animals that we are, we went to be before midnight..lol I think we started a bit to early, to pull an all nighter. Plus, we're all old.

We all woke up early this morning, feeling fine! I had a bit of a headache but nothing a couple of Advils wouldn't take care of. Our friends left already, so my husband and I have the WHOLE day to do whatever we want! Which will be nothing exciting, thanks to the gift my dear friend Mother Nature gave me :-|

Holy shit we are on the same cycle. I started yesterday. Mother Nature is a CUNT! My kids are at their dads and hubby and I haven't had sex for over a week because I have been too tired from chasing a toddler around. No break for me.

Might get drunk tonight just for shits and giggles.

Sounds like you're having a good time (except for that annoying AF thing, what a pain). I'm wearing my socks today for my ultrasound (in three hours!!!!). We're leaving town for the weekend right after the appointment, but I brought my laptop so I can hopefully post a quick update from my hubby's office right before we go.

Enjoy your day off!!!!

I'm glad you had a great time. Sorry Mother Nature's spoiling your fun...Sometimes the best laid plans...and all that...

That sounds like a wonderful weekend! I'm glad you got to enjoy some adult company and alcoholic beverages for a bit.

Sounds wonderful all the way around.

Except for the "gift."

I completely get the allnighters that end at midnight :-)

Yeah, this is too funny. I got the "gift" too. Lovely. Ruined my hubby's "romantic" plans for me. Swell. Glad you an adult night out though. I don't do it very often, but I love getting a wee bit smashed every now and then.

Wine tastes so much better when you don't have to worry about the kids hearing/seeing you tipsy (or sloppy drunk)!

Sounds like you got the best of both worlds, quiet time with the husband and girl time with BFF. Boo on Aunt Flo for showing up and trying to spoil the fun.

Thanks for stopping by! Real grownups watch The Wiggles, don't they? Or at least Over the Hedge. I'm totally into kid movies. Trying to have kids so I'll have an excuse for my movie collection. I may just have to admit I have an addiction.

Yay to your great time. I'm greaing exhausted because I went out last night, got loaded and due to that, didn't come home until 3am. And the kids get up at 7. Oh - and a 4am feeding for the baby. kill me.
