Thank you all for your amazing comments on my last post. I know I was a bit whinny and over dramatic and nobody said a thing about it! Thank you, ya'll are simply The Best!
Just a few minutes after I hit that lovely, sometimes scary, "publish" button I felt a HUGE weight lift off my shoulders. I've done so well at disconnecting myself from Peaches and her decisions. I've even done a wonderful job at disconnecting myself from my other friends' decisions. It isn't my life and their choices won't effect my life. They may effect my life, but not in the same way they will effect their OWN lives. It's a very emotionally healthy way to live. It's taken me awhile to get here, but here I am. I'm sure I'll have set backs every now and then and run around like Chicken Little, but I'll always come back to sanity.
Today was a pretty big day here. It was Zilla's big birthday. The little guy turned six! We had a great day of opening presents and having "birthday pie". He requested mac and cheese, from a box :-| with hot dogs and a pie I made for Peaches' birthday on Wednesday. And that's what he got. Husband and I stayed up until 3am wrapping presents (me) and decorating the house (us). It was a very long day. Not only was it long because I didn't get to bed until 3am, I had stayed up until around 2am with Peaches and another friend drinking wine and celebrating Peaches' birthday. WHEW! Too many birthdays in one week! Although, I am SO thankful that Peaches wanted to chill out by the fire and have a few glasses of wine with girl talk and not go out. I'm old and wouldn't have been able to handle it like the rest of em. Plus none of them really have a family, so they're able to drink or stay out until all hours of the morning and then sleep it off all the next day. Me, not so much.
Anyway, sorry got off track....so today we celebrated Zilla's sixth birthday. He opened up his presents and ran around all day saying "because I'm the birthday boy". Apparently, because it was his birth day he could do whatever he wanted. How cute! Silly boy doesn't realize I get to do whatever I want NOT him! I did tell him it was my "give-birth-day and I could do whatever I wanted, too" He didn't buy it. Next Sunday is The Party. We were going to have a party for his friends and then a party for family, but Husband thought it would be better to combine the two. It's his family that will be here, so if he wants to drive his parents crazy with a group of wild boys, them by ALL means, lets combine the two! This will be fun blogging material, stay tuned for THAT entry next week!
Other then the birthday week, all has been going well around here. I feel very good about detaching myself from certain decisions and allowing choices to be made. It's not like I wouldn't allow choices to be made, I'll just stay out of it.
I'm too tired to string anymore words together to form some sort of sentence, so I will go to bed. Night all. Sending out warm thoughts to everyone!
