Like many people, we will be enjoying a long weekend this weekend. (Happy Birthday, Dr. King!) Unlike most weekends, when I just sit around in my pajamas from the time I walk in the door afterschool on Friday until I have to go back to work on Monday, I have a pretty full schedule this weekend.
Last night, Stud had one of his very bestest friends over, who was able to spend the night. I'm listening to them down in the basement right now, playing Wii. They're pretty funny. The very best part of having his friend over? Stud was up before 9 am!!!! Oh, NO, I'm NOT kidding!!!
I have no clue what time they went to bed. I passed out on the couch at 10, which really kinds sucks because I was attempting to watch a movie. Yeah, right! Like that'll ever happen! The minute the opening credits start, it's always like someone shot me with a tranquilizer gun! Every freakin' time!! Sheesh, it sucks being old! Anyway, I was up about 7 (I woke up on the couch around midnight, then watched a couple hours of TV until I could fall asleep again), did a quick check for the boys (Stud actually came upstairs and slept in his bed, his friend slept in the basement) then did some laundry. Around 8:15ish, I heard his friend moving around downstairs. He came up around 8:45, and I sent him right in to wake up Stud. Unbelievably, Stud got right up! Naturally, if it had been ME trying to wake him up, there would have been LOTS of yelling, but whatever, at least he's up! I'm a little concerned, though, that he may need to take a nap to survive the rest of the day because...
Here's a quick look at our Saturday night in pictures:
Yay! Tonight is the Mother/Son Dance! I'm really excited. We had such a great time last year. This year, we're going with the same little group. (Two of Stud's besties, and their moms) We are going to one of our favorite restaurants, Chi Tung, for dinner before the dance. They recently opened a new hibachi grill section of the restaurant, and that's where we'll be dining. The boys are really excited to check it out, as are the moms! From there, we're headed to school for the dance. Last year, we had such a blast. After the dance, we will be going for bowling and pizza at a local bowling alley. Whew! I'm getting tired just thinking about it. Maybe Stud and I will BOTH need to take a nap later.
Tomorrow Stud is having friends over, since there's no school on Monday. Then, on Monday, we're both having friends over. He's got a bunch of kids coming over to hang out, and I'll be hosting a few friends from school and a few of my grad school friends. My grad school friends and I have tried to get together at least once a month since we graduated (sheesh, that's almost three years ago now!!) and we were doing very well right up until school started this year. I don't think we've seen each other in about 3 (long) months. The girls from school also decided we should try to get together for dinner once a month, but the last time we got together was when we had Mrs. F.'s baby shower. So, I thought I would combine my two groups of friends, and see what happens. I guarantee it'll be a laughfest. Especially if I bust out the martinis.... ;-)
It's taken me over an hour to finish this, and it's nearly noon. Maybe I should feed these boys, huh? I'll have to come back later because I actually did have some school stuff to write about. Remember, the actual reason for this blog? Yeah......
The lockdown. (This is NOT a drill)
