Man, I get a full day of shuttling Junior to swimming and then to skiing. He is SO excited about the skiing. I know I would have been at his age too. Except for my fear of pain and death. I was always afraid to get hurt sliding – I figure adding me standing up to that would not be good. Anyway, I am so not looking forward to dealing with the ski area, getting his rentals, getting his pass for the class, and then standing in the snow watching for an hour. This, my friends, proves that I love him, because I can think of about 1000 things I’d rather do this afternoon.
Mr. Dump’s birthday is tomorrow, and I can’t figure out what to do. He’s going to have to take my step-son home in the afternoon, and then there’s the whole Superbowl thing. Do I invite people over? I can’t even tell if he wants me to. *sigh*. It’s been a couple of years since we watched the Superbowl with friends. I miss that, actually. It’s always more fun to watch with a bunch of people.
Okay, I guess I need to go make sure Junior doesn’t have his underwear on under his bathing suit. I’m making him put his bathing suit on under his pants because he’s too little to go in the men’s locker room by himself, so it’s easier to have him “ready to go” when we get there.
p.s. Happy Birthday Nat! I hope you had a great day, even though I know it’s tough with your honey away. Just think, when he gets back he’ll have a whole bunch of stuff to make up to you! Geeks bearing gifts!
