Tonight was decent. I was actually babysitting, and fell asleep for 2 hours. But hey, in my defense, the kid is almost 10 and my kid was building a fort with her in the next room. So all was good. I am just so fatigued because I have that early morning gig for 2 hours Monday-Friday and I am always so afraid that I am going to miss it that I wake up literally off and on all night looking at my cell. I am just not an early morning person. My ideal life? Go to bed at 3 and wake up at 10 or 11-true story.
So, I was just writing to a friend who is a decade older about how sad it is that she is moving soon and I haven’t hung out with her pretty much the whole time I have known her. Back story, I used to babysit her kids after school and one of those “kids” is soon to be 21, and I have a much younger kid. So, we have been in each other’s lives, but not really in each other’s close circle of friends because we are at just such different life stages. As I type this I truly cannot believe we met 10 years ago. I did not take her for granted because we were really connected by her kids, but it’s kind of like I knew she was in the D.C. area and did not think that she would leave. Well, she got a cash offer on her house, which is amazing because houses are super expensive here. And, she is out of here in a few weeks!! So much for her living across town, but her new digs down south will be fab so I see a road trip in the future:).
Tomorrow, we are going tubing. Not river tubing, but snow tubing! Yay! I am taking my kid out of obligation. Not that I do not like going. Not because I do not enjoy doing activities with her, but because I just want to lie in bed and hibernate. I am sure that once we get there it will be fun. I bought food to take including a salad for me because I am eating healthy again, I will have to talk about that next post. Anyway, I just don’t want to do the three-hour round trip of driving after doing an out-of-state trip last week. I am not even sure that I will participate with her because we are taking another kid. But more than likely I will because it really is loads of fun. Right now, I can envision sitting in the lodge and just watching from the windows:)
This week has FLOWN by. We did not get to go ice skating, because today and yesterday were super cold days. A day that was a nice day, got wrecked because my kid’s bff got hurt in a ski accident and we went and played board games with her. So, the next month we are going to conquer all of the outdoor skating venues in D.C. area because I am wondering where did winter go? Spring is next month!
I am super stoked right now for a few reasons. For one, my daughter tried out for another muscial this week and got it! The director told her and call backs aren’t even until next week. Another thing, we are going to NYC in a month for a whole weekend to hang with my brother, the 21-year-old girl that I mentioned above, and for an acting thing for my daughter. Lastly, my friend gave me her Hulu password info tonight because I canceled Hulu and I get to watch Scandal because I missed it last night. I do not know if my heart can take it! Last week was INTENSE.
I hope that whatever you guys do with your weekend, it is what you want to do. At least after coming back from tubing, I get a free dinner from the girl’s parents for taking her kid tubing. So, score! Enjoy the weather whatever it may be, because remember, any time that we are live to see the sun rise and set is a good day!
