Still going

Yup today as well. Despite the huge snow storm and the terrible drive conditions and the fact that I left my lunch in my car and had to trek out to get it I am still in a god mood. What the heck is up with that? I am glad...don't get me wrong. I am just befuddled.

Well Bud has been doing very well at school. In fact If he continues on this road we will be going to the movies on Sunday as a bribe... er.. um... reward. This same little boy informed me that he now has a girlfriend. Apparently he asked a little girl in his class if she wanted to be his girlfriend. Now excuse me as I catch the last breath in my lungs. Regardless of the fact that I say there is no girl good enough for my son. Unless she has the idiot and tbtine as parents, but that is a big age gap. Little Fin is only 4 months old. She will be one smart cookie though. She may even be too good for my thug of a hockey player, but nonetheless anyone less than Fin will not be good enough. Now don't go getting all bent out of shape. The idiot has posted his expectations for his daughter which are totally attainable, realistic, and what every guy should know. But, since I don't know half of it I will have to pay someone to teach Bud.
I digress....He comes home and says he asked her and that she said yes. He is giving her lollipops and Hershey kisses almost daily. I said to him the other day What are you going to do when she does not want to be your girlfriend anymore. He says "then I can't tell her I like her hair or her clothes" With a straight face (my mind going a million miles a minute) I ask is that why she is your girlfriend? He says "No mommy, she rocks" My face fell obviously since I ROCK! I AM MOMMYROX! I said "I thought I rock!" he said "she does too".

I am in a good mood despite it all, and after all, I rocked first so there!

Enjoy life!

Today I woke up in a really good mood. It is very unusual for me to be in such a really good mood for no reason all day.

I did not win the lottery
I did not hit my head
My old boss did not get run over by a truck.

I am just in a good mood!

Enjoy life!

Merry New Year

Once again I have done it. I have not posted in forever and I could give a laundry list of reasons, buy why bother. I am here now.

We had a lovely Christmas. My mom and I made our annual trip to NYC for some retail therapy. It was nice. We re-connected with some old friends. Bud had his 7th birthday. Yes, I said 7. I can not believe how old he is getting. I do not age just in case the thought crossed your mind. We are still busy as ever with hockey. The boys did win the Wishbone Classic in their division and I am very proud. All of the boys worked very hard. We did some community service work on Dec. 22nd. As a family we all rang the bell for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign. It was a great experience. It just so happened to be the coldest night to ring that stinking bell. We raised a bunch of money. It helps when a little kid is saying "don't forget the charity box" as he holds the door open to the department store. I am getting ready for winter recess to be over and just did major shopping for school lunches. Starting this month Bud has a game every Saturday and Sunday. This is my busy time at work and well lets just be real, I am grateful I still have a job. Our company has laid-off 22 people.
So to all of you a happy and healthy New Year and as always....
Enjoy life
