And then there is the following weekend.....

Weekend #2 

·         Friday night was chill out night with the girls…that entails Pizza and movies…we ended up watching The Mysterious Island which was fun for the whole family…I got to watch the ROCK…YUM and the girls focused on the actual movie.

Emily  not to be outdone by her big sis...love the lighting in these pics...Twilight in my neighborhood. 

·         Saturday morning was kinda of nuts….I babysat for a neighbor, her kids are sweethearts but 4 kids altogether…whew…we had fun though…I made so much bacon and sausage my place still smells like it.

·         Saturday afternoon Emily had a playdate with her friend Ellie and Mia and I went to the Snowball dance together…where I was not allowed to shake my hips…apparently this is embarrassing to her but she did like that I showed her how to line dance and we did the Marcarena…for the most part though she ignored me, hung out with her friends…but she would find me every once in a while to make sure I was ok. It was fun...My baby is growing so fast…literally, she’s 10 and already almost 5’5.

Best Date EVER!!! 

·         I go pick up Emily and visit a bit with Ellie’s parents while the girls get “5 more minutes” I gotta tell you, I’ve been so lucky…I live in such a great neighborhood….so many lovely parents and kids…who knew, in Chicago :)

·         Next the girls and I are on the train to Grandmas house. My parents had been bugging me to let the girls spend the night so here it was. They both bring their rolling overnight bags and were likely dreaming of all the junk food Grandma would let them have…WOOHOO.

Mom and Emily on the train to Grandmas

·         Get the girls in my parents car then get back on the train to go back to the city.

·         Get home for a quick change and head over to Brauhaus for dinner with my friend Gina and her friends.  I’m running late but I’m pretty sure they are running later and I was right…made it just as they got there.

·         Do you know what is lite to eat at a German restaurant…NOTHING!!! So I went with the Hackbraten…basically…meatloaf and mashed potatoes, dripping in mushroom gravy…SOOOOO YUMMY…thank goodness Gina helped me eat the gravy but I ENHALED this meal…I almost licked the plate.

·         Even better they had this drink called Brauhaus Breeze and lemme tell ya…it was breezy….after two of these I was feeling all kindas o fine

·         After we headed to show called the Blackout diaries…comedians get up and tell their most hilarious drunken stories. During the show they had a Malort tasting…ladies do you know what Malort is? Likely no cause y’all got class…unlike me…LOL. Last summer I go to ex sorta boyfriends house and he and his roommates are already having a good time when I got there. His one roommate immediately starts to bug me that I have to try this shot. We are going to go jet skiing on Lake Michigan so HELLZ YEAH I’ll do a shot…OMG!!! at first its fruity as it goes down but then it turns into gasoline mixed with OFF bug spray…its HORRIBLE. I’m watching these folks at the show like lambs to the slaughter. I couldn’t help myself…I knew Ex Sorta BF was working so I texted him “You will not believe this but I’m at a Malort tasting” that was it…the texts start flying back and forth between us and I am howling. Now I hadn’t spoken to him since the break up but I’m trying to be cool and I think I  was…I did check the messages after I sobered up and they were fine.

THAT...is nooooo lie!!!! 

·         Ok so the comedians are up there and this one guy is doing his skit and he’s got a video of his drunken episode. Now he’s wearing this very plaid stand out shirt…he runs the video and guess what…he’s wearing the shirt in the video…I couldn’t hold back and I yell out “HEY THAT’S THE SAME SHIRT!!” the whole place bursts out in laughter and my friend Gina says to me “OMG you just made this whole set soooo much better”

·         The show ends and one of the comedians comes up and starts talking to us…His name was Mike but Gina kept calling him Steve so he became Mike/Steve. I’m chatting with Mike and he tells me he wants to meet Gina so I introduce them…NOTHING…she couldn’t have been less interested…oh well…he still hangs out with us.

·         We go to the bar across the street and hang out with the show cast…great time but I’m reaching my drink/hang out limit…not to mention Mike/Steve is now hitting on me…YIKES!!! Told him you don’t go for my friend and then me when you strike out…then he starts with how it was me all along….EYES ROLLING…time to go home.

·         Meanwhile sorta ex is texting…sigh…grr…heart LOL. We had a lovely conversation as I passed out. Important thing he sent the last text...somehow it makes me feel better.I know I'm fooling myself that I'm OVER him...I'm not...I'm not crying or pining or anything like that...I think I'm just still mourning something I've lost and it still kinda sucks. 

·         Sunday funday brunch I help to make an assload of bacon and pancakes…nice to see everyone, especially my friend Shauna who was in from Vegas.

·         Leave brunch early and go pick up the girls at my parents. Run errands for my parents and watch part of the Oscars at their house before heading home. 

You know as I write this stuff I'm stunned I do so much...and then I wonder...why do I feel so burned out LOL....Meanwhile I haven't worked out AT ALL...so between the eating and the drinking...I put on 4lbs...BLEH!!! still under my goal weight but not happy. I have to get back in the swing of things...I mean one week off and 4lbs is not a big deal...but I'm deathly afraid that 4lbs will soon become 20lbs. Well I'll  get back to that soon...right?!?! Stay tuned!!!
