I snatched her up and apologized to Slim, and said I had to take her home as punishment. The hubs stayed at the party with The Politician. Getting home was hard- she went into a giant fit complete with hyperventilate-type breathing and I of course was crying myself.
I am just so sad..... why is this so hard?????? Why can't we go to a birthday party and have fun and not have to spend every second watching her so she doesn't do something destructive???????????????
Thanks for listening.

WC and I were going to Sam's to pick up snacks for P's t-ball game Thursday: small bottles of G2 and peanut butter crackers (not poisonous!).
I put it in park and no one was parked next to me, so I opened my door and before I knew what was happening a guy in a big truck came out of nowhere and hit my door as he was pulling in.
I won't bore you with all the details, but after he insinuated that it was my fault and starting whipping out his camera phone to take pictures of the damage to his front bumper and acting like I was going to have to pay to fix his truck, I pretty much burst into tears. Of course WC saying "Why'd you hit our car?" alternated with asking the guy "Want a pretzel?" wasn't helping.
Since my anxiety manifests itself with tears and a giant lump in my throat that won't let me speak, I mumbled that I would just have my husband come and handle this. I absolutely suck at confrontation. And the craziest part is I used to be on the debate team- and I was damn good at Lincoln-Douglas!
Of course the fabulous negotiator hubs swooped in and solved the world's problems for me.
I still cried my way through Sam's and the hubs is trying to convince me to have a Mike's Hard Pomegranate Lemonade (thanks Missouri!) to relax, although I am desperately trying to lose 14.6 pounds by my Mexico trip in July, and I just started my dietary restrictions at 1 pm today after Girl's Lunch and I hate to spoil that with alcohol.
Should I have one anyway???????

We don't have that in our state. States with a 3.2 law don't get much cool stuff. We do have the Light Cranberry Lemonade, but I'd love the plain light also. Tonight I have polished off a few along with some smores that we made outside our condo rental. Yum-O.
Seeing as how the Summer of Beer is upon us, I guess I'll just have to stock up on the Mike's Light before we head home Monday.......

I recently picked up two different candles at Target to see which one I liked best.
First up is Glade Suddenly Spring, purchased for $3.14, which I believe was 50 cents off the regular price at Target.
This candle is such a pretty shade of pale green and looks great in the frosted glass. It smells light and fresh. Cons: the label is permanently attached to the glass, and the scent is very light- you almost have to "try" to smell it burning.
The glass is nice and thick and feels expensive and there is no label attached to the glass- it looks pricy! The color is the same pretty shade of pale green, but the scent is FANTASTIC and I feel bad each time I have to blow it out. This scent is stronger than the Glade, but still not overpowering. This candle wins hands down, and I'll be purchasing more since this is a limited edition.
The next day, I heard it on the radio and I thought the original artist did an ever better job! I knew that was a sign- I needed to put it on my ipod.
So I searched the Internet to find out who sang it.
And I was flabbergasted. I sat there in disbelief. I'm a Zeppelin girl, a Doors girl, a classic rock girl! There was no way I liked a song by.....

At Braum's on Friday night, she sat down with a couple having hot fudge sundaes and asked them "What are you eating?"
And yesterday our neighbor was out doing yard work, getting some sun without his shirt on. WC walked over to him and asked "Why are you nekkid?"
If I had half her confidence and lack of shyness, I'd be doing big things. Where in the H did she get it?

The Wild Child goes to school there also and I don't know what she'll do when she figures out her bubba is at a different school this fall... they love getting to see each other during the day. She was so well-behaved at the ceremony, it was like someone switched her out with another child! Ha!
After the ceremony, he chose to eat at Red Robin. After lunch, he looked at me and said, "This is the most exciting week of my life!"
My little boy is growing up so fast. And I'm so proud of him.

Target has the 20 oz Vitamin Water 10s on sale for $1.02. Combine that with the $1 off coupon from last Sunday's paper, and you've got a free drink!
I got the XXX (triple berry or some such) and it's fabulous.
