Let's start this NaBloPoMo thing!

When was the last time you said, "I love you."?


Ummm...about 2 minutes ago when I went into Stud's room and kissed his head.

Naturally, he rolled over, grumbled about me waking him up, and then started snoring again. =)

Ok, I hope the rest of the posts are as easy as this one.

This week I had the pleasure of spending a couple of days with my little Monkey.  I probably said "I love you!" about eleventy-billion times!!

The first day I had her (Tuesday) I brought a beanbag up from the basement for her to sit in, and watch The Little Mermaid.  I think she liked it.
 The next day, she wanted to watch the movie again.  She was still in her jammies here, and it was really cold in the house.  (Tuesday, it was about 66 degrees here, Wednesday it dropped to the low 30s.)  So, I bundled her up to watch the movie.  She actually sat like this for quite a while, much to our delight and amusement!
I know it's been a while since I've posted anything, so maybe I'll give you a quick run-down of what's been going on.  After an almost 3 year hiatus, I actually worked at the bar this past weekend.  My poor brother has been really sick, and something was going around the bar.  He was totally short-handed Saturday night, and too sick to work himself, so he broke down and called me to tend bar.  I gotta tell ya, I had a BLAST!

I felt a bit useless the first hour or so, since I hadn't done it in so long, but once I got my groove back, it was fun.  It was just like riding a bike!  I really miss it more than I thought I did.  A bunch of people who used to be my regulars actually came in that night, so that was awesome.  The funny thing is, they all said they hadn't been there in ages.  Fate, I tell ya!

Then, I worked again on Sunday.  My brother threw a party for his employees, and some of his best regulars.  I already knew I would be working that night, and helping my brother with the party.  What I didn't count on was being there until about 5:00am Sunday morning (after working Saturday night) then only getting about 4 hours of sleep before having to drive all the way back out there to set up for the party, and get all the food going.  Yes, in crock pots!!!  (Shut up, Suz!)  We spent a couple hours getting ready, then I went back home to shower and change, so I could come back and work.  (In weekend traffic, it's close to a 45 minute drive EACH WAY!  Ugh!)  It was a LONG night!!  I finally had to leave at 2am, cuz I couldn't keep my eyes open another minute.  Plus, I figured I'd be getting Monkey the next morning, since her daddy was going to be there way later than I was!  I believe he was there until nearly 5am.

Monday morning, I got up about 7am, after getting to bed at almost 3, because I didn't want to miss the call from Monkey's mom about taking her.  Yeah, well, I finally texted her around 9, only to find out she took Monkey to her parents' house.  WTF?!  I tried to get a little more sleep, but it wasn't happening.  Thank God I got to have Monkey for the next two days, or I'd still be pissed at her mom!

Although I was exhausted after this weekend, it was great to make a little cash.  I made almost a week's worth of unemployment in those two days, so it was well worth it.

Ok, this was way too long and rambly.  Sorry.  I'm going to try and stick to just answering the prompts for the rest of the month, I swear.

**woo hoo! Got the call at 7:45, I get a THIRD day with Monkey this week!!**

What does "too long and rambly" mean? It can never be long enough for the folks who care enough to read this, and those who don't can go take a flying... oh, wait, there's no ADULTS ONLY rating on this blog!

Sounds like you had a good time, and got to pick up a little ca$h besides. Cherish the moment!

Bartender can bring in some cash! My husband supported us for years that way and he loved it. Alas, the hours sucked for a young fsmily.
