Now Back To the Show

Christmas was as good as you can get being an adult here in the Tuesday Girl household.
The kids were spoiled as usual by Santa and our family. E bought me a GPS so you hear from me again once we move to NH, because have you ever visited NH? Every road is a back road and what is so wrong with street lights so you can....I don't know, see?
Ahem.
Now I have no excuse to make E drive me everywhere I need to go.
All I have is holding him to the promise he will fill my gas tank for me when ever I need it so I don't have to pump my own gas.
Once was enough. (Hence my purchase of a tee shirt that reads "Jersey Girls don't pump gas")


Christmas day with both sides of the family here was even more chaotic then usual but it was our last one hosting so it still was good. sometimes too much family at once can be challenging. You know what I am talking about.

I spent all day on Tuesday baking cinnamon rolls for my neighbors, chocolate covered pretzels with the kids and knitting some ornaments for our tree. I was a homemaking fool.
I felt like Martha Stewart, only poor.

Now I am back to the grind of being alone all week, trying to plan the twin's birthday party, trying to find movers who will accept anything but 4 months salary as payment, getting dental work done for me and checkup for the kids before we move and not losing my mind.

I must be on the verge because I accepted an invitation for a playdate for the kids. Hold me.
Sure, when I am ready to move I find friends.

  1. Drop the kids off at the playdate and RUN! Maybe the mom will take all three. :)

  3. Ah, the dreaded 'at your house' playdate! I've been putting off calling a friend this week to plan one of those because I can't seem to get myself unburied from the chaos here long enough to consider having another set of kids here...or find the phone, for that matter!

    Pumping gas is easy. You can do it.

  5. It never fails.
    Every time I finally meet a friend, we move.
    Every time!

  6. Playdates. I dread them. Especially because my 11 month old seems to like to head butt people. I have been in my new home for 4 months. I feel for ya on making friends. It is so much harder as an adult but I have made some good ones here in a relatively short time.

  7. If you miss the street lights, just try putting on your headlights. :)

  8. the play date is at your house... Well, I cant say much, we made an international move and I said I would host a friend's bridal shower three days before our move.

    I have no idea why we do this to ourselves!
