Last night was the baccalaureate for BB’s graduating class. It’s official: the coaew still sets my teeth on edge. Listening to her sigh on and on about how she wasn’t excited for BB at all – she didn’t want him to graduate because it was making her sad. Of course she’s not excited, she doesn’t need to be. She hasn’t had to do any of the dirty work in raising him. She expressed surprise that Sweety wasn’t all weepy. As Sweety said, it’s been hard getting him to Senior year so he’s going to enjoy it. I’m looking at it as a hurdle to get over that brings me closer to having one less person to pick up after.
I haven’t had antianxiety medication since I found out that I was pregnant with Bean. What I would have done for a xanax the size of a golf ball to lick last night.
Guess where we’re going for our 12th anniversary? Niagara Falls. At first, we’d just planned on it being Sweety, Bean, and me but the guest list has expanded to include LB, BB, and BB’s girlfriend. Maybe I had too much to drink one night and was feeling guilty about going somewhere so fun without everyone. I think it’ll be a fine trip. Inviting everyone happened before BB blew off the H00ters job. If I’d have know that was going to happen – they wouldn’t all be going. As it is, I really like BB’s girlfriend and she’s excited about it – I’m not going to tell the kids they can’t come because we’re pissy with BB right now.
I’ve spent the too much time the internet yesterday trying to decide what tour to book. Decided to not purchase anything because my eyes were crossing. We know we want to do Maid of the Mist, Journey Behind the Falls, and Skylon Tower. That’s as far as I am in the planning process. If you’ve ever been and have any nuggets of wisdom to throw at me, by all means, please.
Yesterday morning as I was getting ready for the day, Bean tiptoed away with her toothbrush. I noticed she was being very quiet which is most unusual. This is what I found.
Brushing Oliver’s teeth. And he was LOVING it.
See those curly things on the sliding glass door? That started life as a vinyl tree that was going onto Bean’s wall. Thanks to an unfortunate run-in with Sweety, the tree died and the branches have been repurposed on the door. They’re there to keep Budhole’s half-blind ass from smacking into the closed door. Sometimes, even if part of the door was open, he’d try to jump through the closed part. Not an issue now! I don’t enjoy having a geriatric chihuahua pissing up the place when he feels like it but I have no desire (at this time) to inflict brain damage on him.
I am the least crafty person in the world but I made something! An express envelope, some tape, and a rouge Halloween sticker have banded together to form a pouch to carry even more of Bean’s belongings in my purse! I am so pleased to not have crayons rattling around in there anymore.
She kept saying that Minnie needed a diaper so we rubber-banded one on.
Bean likes to help.
Does anyone else thinks the new Flickr sucks a bag of dicks? I am not a fan.
LB’s girlfriend is visiting for the first time after school today so I need to get the house “company clean”. I was going to do it yesterday but it didn’t happen. I’ve now decided if I can keep Bean out of my hair long enough to dust and make the house smell clean that it will do. Oliver and BudLight don’t know it yet but they are going to be hauled to the beauty shop for nail trims and baths. I’ve discovered half the battle of cleaning the damned house is getting the hounds clean.
