Instead of boring you with a play-by-play of my kids soccer games, or the most exciting things I do on the weekend, (laundry, dishes, soccer games) I think I’ll feed you tidbits of some of the events and musings of the weekend.
Tidbit 1- Zombiegirl’s team won their first Travel game of the season, 3-1 against Valley Stream. Off to a good start!
Tidbit 2- I convinced small children that a) the people in the low flying planes that flew over our soccer field can see us and were waving. At one point there were eight people waving at planes and not watching the game. B) If you spin around really, really fast, you’ll lift off the ground, c) if you flip your hands up at a 90 degree angle when you’re running you WILL slow down and d) that my house is haunted.
Tidbit 3- My husband is a much better cook than I am. This is evident by his meatballs. Which I HAD to taste.
Tidbit 4- Apocalypse Now (director’s cut) is NOT my favorite movie.
Tidbit 5- Strange people use the laundromat. And it’s expensive to wash a comforter.
Tidbit 6- I now know how to kill a maenad. I just have to change into a bull and convince her to marry me.
Tidbit 7- Time truly flies when you watch end-to-end episodes of the third season of Dexter. Which I DO love.
Tidbit 8- After 12 years of marriage, I would do it all over again with my hubby.
Tidbit 9- If I hear one more of my friends/acquaintances back out of doing something because “I work…” I will have to bitch slap them. I’ve been working full-time for 24 years and I have managed to: get married twice, have three kids, own a home, car and pets, have numerous yard sales, run two businesses, be a Girl Scout Leader, Sunday School Teacher, Soccer Mom and Class Parent many times over, write a blog, take pretty damn good care of my family and house AND go to the gym. Yes, I have flexibility at my job and a good support system at home. That does help. But I am just really SO very tired of the Primadonnas making excuses.
Tidbit 10- I am secretly married to Dan. My Facebook friend told me so.
That was my weekend in a nutshell. Comment if you’re interested in any of the backstories!
