My weekend was supposed to be a productive one but it didn't end up that way.

My weekend was pretty decent but it could've been better. The kids were supposed to stay with their mom this weekend. For some reason, unknown to me, Lashaa stayed with us. The boys stayed with their mom. Lamont and I had made plans to take Ayaan to my cousin's so we could go out. Lashaa had an idea of her own so she had an attitude when we informed her that she had to go to my cousin's too. So Lashaa put a damper on my cousin and her kids enjoying my son with her stank attitude. GRRRR!


Anyway, Lamont and I had a decent time when we went out. He was acting like a wimp and he was sooo tired. But we met up with my friend Amphon and then we went bowling. I had a great time with her. Lamont and I didn't get home until 5 a.m. We had to go pick up the kids at 4 a.m. Ayaan was down to his last bottle so we didn't want to chance it.


Saturday I had an appointment with one of my Avon downline representatives. That went well. We were supposed to meet at 8:30 a.m. but I overslept so she came over that evening at about 8:30 p.m. She is so cool!


Sunday I did more sleeping and relaxing. I didn't even clean up the house. Ayaan was running all over the place and being his normal silly self. I discovered that Lashaa has a huge ringworm on her wrist. YUCK! I just pray none of us get it.


I also spent a lot of time on the Internet. I also watched my Falcons play but I didn't see the end.


Thanks for asking. How was your weekend?

We celebrated my dd's 18th birthday yesterday with a nice dinner including friends, us and her BF's parents. It was a nice time. The best part was that I usually do some cleaning and painting this time of year and now it's all done before the holidays!

My dd turned 18 on the 3rd, she's all grown up and beautiful as ever. I couldn't be prouder - she's a great young woman.

My H's b'day is today = he's 44 and I think he's having a hard time with it. Hopefully he will settle down about it by week's end. LOL

Besides the good stuff, my sister is acting up again and things are very bad between us. You know when you can clearly see mental illness for what it is, and so can others, but the person can't see it and just blames everyone else for the troubles? Well, that's my sister. I've had to take a hard line and detach from her and its been very difficult, but it's what I feel I have to do at this time.

I dislike it when the kids have friends over and they come in and out all day.

I'm sorry to hear about your sister. That's a tough situation to deal with. Your daughter's birthday dinner sounds like it was a great time.


-------


I worked Friday and Saturday, which I usually hate, but I worked with a guy that I get along with really well so it wasn't too bad. My best friend babysat my daughter Saturday while dh and I were both at work so I got to hang out with her when I got home Saturday.


Then me, dh, dd and bf drove across the state

That sounds like an enjoyable time - I love visiting with old friends. And I miss being around little peanuts...I wish someone nearby would have a baby!

The sitch with my sister is just one of those things that's difficult and I just need to deal with, but I don't yet know how to do that. I work with her H full time, so there is the added worry that she might interfere with my job, though I don't really think so at this time. I don't know. I've been praying about it and meditating and I feel like I'm in an okay place right now. I can't let it turn me inside out like it used to.

Happy birthday to your daughter! How old is her BF? How long have they been dating? Do you like him? Just wondering. :-) The thought of my kids dating scares me. When did you allow your kids to date?


What do you have planned for DH's birthday?


It really sucks that there is a riff between you and your sister. I will keep her in my prayers that she realizes she does have a problem. I can completely sympathize with you. Sometimes you just have to do what is best for you. {{{HUGS}}}

I used to be so freaked out at the thought of my girls dating one day, but that day is here and it's just been such a natural progression. The most difficult parts of dealing with it most of all is having to talk about sex and everything that goes with it.

My 18dd's BF is 20 and yes, we like him. He comes from a really nice family and is respectful of dd. The only reservation I have about him is that he's insecure and so that makes him very possessive of dd - she handles it okay and we've discussed it a lot over this past year. He has a real problem when he thinks about her going away for college one day and I am hoping that my dd doesn't change her plans for him; right now it doesn't seem like she will. This particular dd grew up thinking that her date age was 16, so she just wasn't really interested in any guys until then and by that time she'd known all the boys in her grade for 10 years already. It wasn't until she was 17 did she meet and start dating her BF. He is her first and only real BF.

My 16dd's BF is also 16 and we like him also. He's a nice kid, his parents are nice people. They go to school together and see each other outside of school about 3 times per week - he lives in another town, so it's hard for them to get together. This dd actually had a BF at 14. I wasn't thrilled but I thought better that I allow them limited time together, at my house only, so that at least she doesn't sneak around. It wound up working in my favor just like I planned. He was a really nice boy - we liked him a lot and were secretly hoping they'd last a while so we wouldn't have to worry about her getting all boy crazy in HS. But they broke up because she said he was suffocating her - lol (they only saw each other once a week and talked on the phone). Then this past Summer, she met the BF she has now.

HD's b'day? Well, I bought him an Ab Lounger, like he wanted, but he wouldn't tell me what he wanted for dinner or anything, so since we had cake last night for him....I might just put together one of his old faves.

Peace~
