What Was I Thinking
October 10, 2007
I have agreed to let my stepdaughter have a weekend slumber party at our house this weekend. Her brother is being lavished with gifts and attention, due to his accident, and I know she deserves this, but honestly, what was I thinking? I hope some of the kids she invited get to come, if not she will be devestated. Being out-of-state weekend parents, and my spouse working afternoons makes it difficult for us to have even a casual relationship with her friends parents. I know many of them will be unsure about sending their kids an hour away for the weekend, to the home of strangers. Honestly, these people know nothing about us, with the exception of what they may have heard from J’s ex, which can’t be flattering! BTW Red, I told my stepdaughter to tell her friends parents they could check us out on the sex offender registry. I said that if they found us to please let me know. I also added that I would make no promises that my 2 youngsters wouldn’t expose themselves to their daughters.
I told J that if few enough kids come that I can tote them all in the minivan by myself, then he could go fishing with my dad and uncles. That’s right, me, my two hoodlums, and an undisclosed number of teenage girls, ALONE. Bye bye clean house, bye bye weekend off, hello insanity. *note to self: See if there is a such thing as a prozac intreveinous drip, and if so, get perscription immediately*
There is one thought getting me through this: JBJ HOSTING SNL!!!!!!!!! And on the plus side, I’ll have a bunch of people there to keep me awake enough to watch it.
