Well, hello there.

I finally have a chance to sit down and write. mace is at miss toni's and loving every minute of it. This is the face he gives me when i try and drag him away from there.
Real quick. I think that Jason from General Hospital is finally off the steroids. He is starting to look good again.
I should be at the gym watching this show but instead, I am sitting at the computer. I got the house clean today. since we are going to be gone this weekend, it will take awhile to get dirty.We are heading to the lake. I am so excited. It is supposed to be pretty this weekend, too.
So, I will get to the good stuff.
They are kinda out of order since I can't figure out how to post them on this new site.
Beth was over last friday. and, of course ravenous got a little hungry. Cause that boy loves to eat.
Katie got hungry, too. by the way, Katie moved out. she had enough of Mason. he was keeping her from getting the beauty sleep she needs. Mason keeps everyone from getting beauty sleep. Look to me as evidence of this fact.
Anyway, I miss her and hope she visits often. The apartment she got has a kiddie pool. There are chairs in the kiddie pool. I can't wait.
Well, I can wait on the bathing suits.
On Monday, I had to drive to elgin. It is out in the boondocks. I get to go to this concert. Maybe Brandon flowers will wave at me.
This is one of my favorite new cds. I like this song called is really time for a new paint job
This is the road that I had to drive up to get to the patients' house. If another car was coming, I would have had to back all the way up to the road.
This is how the Friday night started. pizza and wine. yummy.
Sorry this is blurry. but, it is really to good to pass up. katie was trying to scare mason. You know, love/hate relationship.
Did anyone watch the bob woodruff show last night. He was so inspirational. Mason needs new clothes.

a working mom, now.

I have officially started the job. I really don't know if I am going to like it just yet. Things are crazy and I have been feeling a little overwhelmed. The first two days were pretty crazy but that is just how things are when you start something new.
Today was better. I am figuring stuff out and I am kinda getting excited about going out on my own and making a paycheck. you know, adult stuff.
I definitely think that I will meet some interesting people and see some crazy things.

Mason, you ask? Well he doesn't seem to care one bit whether I am gone or not. He has not cried once when I dropped him off. And it has been three days now. He is taking a nap without crying, eating, playing and just being dear sweet mason.

I like to think he acting so good because of my attachment parenting.

Anyway, I don't have to go to work tomorrow and so that means I can sit and drink a cup of coffee and get on the phone with my peeps.

Here are a couple of pics of Mason. Jeff dumped the toybox out and Mason loves walking around in it and growling.

This is the day after his Valentine party. He sent me a card and everything. He actually got chocolate covered strawberries. he was doing better than me.

Check out his t-shirt Mrs. Toni made him.

This is how mason acts when I drop him off. I didn't even have to cry since he acted so good.

I haven't been working out and I need to. Riding around in a car will make me even fatter.

they do it like this in buffalo, TX.

I went to Henderson and came back with a ticket. a f'in speeding ticket.
there goes some more money.
am I the only one who never gets a warning? Melissa says I have a snippy tone. I guess she is right. I don't mean to have the tone. It sneaks in. Plus - I hate cops. they are always so cheerful when they are writing out your ticket. Kinda like they are doing you a favor.

On a sad note. Cue the sad music. Tomorrow I drop mason off at daycare. I am really emotional today. I really think that I could spend all day crying if I let myself.

I have already got in a fight with my mom. I found out that someone I cared about from childhood is in the hospital. I couldn't get tested for tb cause there were too many people in there get drug tests. Liability insurance was going to cost 3000. I couldn't find any of those cheap valentine cards for Mason's new friends. I had to buy expensive ones cause I was too lazy to go to Walgreen's. I still haven't cleaned the house. and britney spears stripped down to her underwear at some NYC club.

I also forgot my camera while I was in east Texas. That means I couldn't document my trip.
Let's all pray that I don't break down tomorrow morning in front of Ms. Toni. Cause it will be ugly tears if I do. I don't want to scare her this early in our relationship. (mason wouldn't care. He has seen it all before.)

Superbowl Sunday.

To get started, I don't care about the superbowl. i don't care who was playing, who won or what was happening at halftime. (unless there is a scandal)
I just wanted to see Kevin Federline working at Taco Bell and eat some good food.
i missed k-fed but ate food.
I decided to take mace to church. Big mistake. he is horrible. It is just way too close to his naptime at 10:30. He just want sit in the pew with me. He would rather be crawling under the pew.
Katie and Jeff cleaned up around the house for me. Thank God. I am getting a little tired of cleaning. And Katie did the toilets. big Help!!!
(I think the mom on supernanny has a lisp.)
katie and I went for a hike before the superbowl.
I have been hearing about the place for years. Beth and katie have been going there forever. The story goes that Katie almost drowned one year. Katie drowning? can you believe it?
Here is Katie contemplating her near miss.

Here is me thinking about why my double chin is making an appearance. (should I be using a or an before appearance?)
By the way, I also have on a shirt I bought in Padre when I was 18. It says Fucking Spring Break, Fucking Padre Island.
Bad judgement call. There were way to many kids out there. I think it is time for this shirt to come out of rotation.

Here are the kids playing together at the superbowl party. (I changed the shirt)
Please notice that Mason has a sony playstation controller in his paws. Isn't little Will cute? He is the one with the curly hair.

Mason had trouble falling asleep today for his nap. So I had to lay down with him in the rocker. I slept for about 45 minutes and then I had to sneak out of the chair without stirring the sleeping beauty. And, you know, he really is a sleeping beauty. That will probably be one of the last times that happens.

OK, back to SuperNanny.
Oh yeah, I hit my knee on a highway divider after the hike. Now it is swollen and it sucks.

The Killers.

Jeff got me tickets to the Killers today.
It will be on my birthday. april 13.
I think we may be sitting behind the stage. Do people do that?

Mason will start going to Ms. Toni's the week after next. I know he will love it. But I will definitely be sad. I am probably going to start work sometime in the next two weeks.
We will see how long I will be able to do this. I am a little worried that the houses are going to be really nasty.
I hate nasty.

I am making some peas, mashed potatoes, and chix to go along with the calorie ridden brownies i made yesterday to get rid of my hangover. I love those brownies.

Tomorrow is the superbowl. I am actually surprised that I know who is playing. I learned it from Ellen. She is always teaching us something.

I got the new Regina spektor album. Can't wait to download it to my ipod. Katie got the Dixie Chicks.

Oh yeah. we are making pizzas for superbowl.
Mason got a magna doodle and man can she draw on that beatttchhh.

a night of debauchery

Since Katie got here, things have changed. I now go out on weeknights. I went to a place where the gonja and patchouli were flowing.
Of course, I had none of those things.
The night started with a little Free Fallin. courtesy of Katie.

After the show, Katie had a smoke. now that is weird. I am sure it was my fault.

Then we had to have that sandwich from Whataburger with Chix strips, swiss and BBQ. OMG. It was good. Katie would only let us share a sandwich. I hated the idea at the time but now I am happy about it.

The evening ended with this.

and it was 2 in the morning and mason was up at 5. HE knows. HE knows.
Everytime I go out he wants to punish me.
and I had to go to his checkup hungover.
