Arlyn made me do it....

okay, so this post is basically to see if I am on her "list." you know, the list you can create somewhere that tells you when people have updated their blogs. I will freely admit that I don't have a list. and it isn't because I don't read other people's blogs.....but because I am not there yet technologically. I am glad that I found the place that I can check to let me know when people reply to MY blog!!

anyway.....I told you all a little about Saturday....Sunday was just as darn busy! a friends' son turned 4 (wow! 4 sheesh!! I remember when I met his mommie on the way to a Sugar Ray concert and we were talking about troubles conceiving. I remember all the conversations about their attempts......and then they stopped talking. I didn't ask. I knew it was 1 of 2 things: either they weren't doing it anymore and were in mourning.....or they were pregnant and holding their breathe. by the fact that we were at a 4 year olds' bday party you can guess which one it was!) we have a really weird relationship with their family (not bad weird, just not friendship based on regular things that they are normally based on)........that I won't get into here. if you know who I am talking about then you know what I mean. if you don't then I am not intentionally leaving you out......just respecting their privacy.

back to the day......it was his bday party. well, I guess we don't see them enough other than when we come over to babysit because he got upset the minute I walked in the door. he wouldn't talk to me or make eye contact. and while the later isn't too surprising, he normally atleast acknowledges that I have arrived! lol! it took about 20 minutes of both myself and his parents telling him that they weren't leaving for him to settle down. poor kid! that really wasn't fair of us, was it?!?! the party was a blast and my boys were better dealing with the littlier kids than last year. funny thing that yesterday afternoon I uploaded the pics from his party last year and saw all the same kids a year younger!

amazing how fast that weekend went! oh, and speaking of amazing.....can't BELIEVE what happened on Amazing Race last night! uuuuugh!! don't want the whiney bitchy cousins in first place! no! no! no!!!! and absolutely LOVED my boys chasing after Phil with coal all over them! just HAD to crack up at that! and, honestly, SO happy that Uchenna and Joyce were not over last night. while they are not my team of choice to win, I really like them!!

It's called an aggregator. Safari has it built in so everytime you post something, a number pops up next to you name. SO much easier than making to rounds to see if people posted.

at least your boys are still alive in the pool! I should have picked a better team! But yes, I wasn't please with who won the leg. And I sooooo would have picked painting nails over manual labor!

You're on my list!

I can't get into AR this season. I hate Rob and Amber and Charla and Myrna. Worse than nails on a blackboard. I'm all about the Idol, baby! Even though my pick in the swap went home last week. *sigh*
