Hi Kathryn:  Just wondering whether Brea has named the Purple Wonder yet?  I was thinking about it as I was driving to pick up the boys this afternoon and the perfect name popped into my head.  I think she should christen it Petunia .  What do you think?  Or Petal, perhaps.  No … no… I think Petunia!!! (Sometimes I wonder if my brain has turned to mush from lack of work.)
Anyway, it’s 2:47 a.m. and I’m waiting patiently for the boys to settle down.  I’m feeling quite awful right now, because when I went to pick up the boys and their friends, I packed up all their sleeping bags, knapsacks and one suitcase that one of the friends had brought. Now, I can’t find the suitcase with all his clothes.  I drove back to the school at 1 a.m. to see if I’d left it in the parking lot … to no avail.  Poor thing has to sleep in my boys’ sweatpants and tee.  If it’s not found at school on Monday, I’m going to have to fork out for the lost case and clothes.  I feel so bad for him.  I can’t imagine how I could have lost it.  (Too bloody busy naming Brea’s car, I think, lol!)
Anyway, I think the moon is in the "husbands gone wild" phase.  My husband had his usual weekly poker game at the local pub.  He came home drunker than a skunk … I am SO NOT amused!!  Of course, he wasn’t falling down drunk, but drunk enough that he had to leave the car at the pub and walk home. I can count on one hand the number of times he has done this in 16 years, but that’s no excuse.  Bad enough he has a standing night with the guys EVERY week, now he thinks it’s ok to come home sloshed while my kids have their friends over???  Not cool!!!!  No-one noticed anything, but I know and that’s enough to put him in the doghouse for a week (at least!!!)
I was SO mad, and of course, my mind turned to gambling.  If he gets to play poker every Friday, why can’t I go to the casino some Saturdays.  We all know the answer to that one, but there it was … loud and clear.  "You deserve your time away."  Grrrr … warped thinking!!!
Anyway, onward and upward.  I like your new signature … you need to share it with Vera who is being extraordinarily hard on herself.
Enjoy your lazy weekend … it is my intention to laze the day away once all the kids are picked up on Saturday afternoon.
Talk soon.
 This moment is all we really have.  Be happy in it.
