Sometimes you just have to go with the flow, you know. After school today, everyone was pretty tired (except C who is never too tired to dive into a video game). We chilled on the couch talking for a while waiting for the kids’ Dad to show up and present Z with cut flowers. 🙄 A sweet gesture, but I’m sure in the grand scheme of things, some white roses are going to be forgotten just about as fast as they perish in a vase on her dresser.
He and his girlfriend showed up half an hour past the time he said he would be here “at the latest”, and thus delayed us leaving while everyone was still fresh and ready to roll. By the time they left, Z looked at me and said “Mom, I’m too tired to go anywhere, can you just go get Freddies?” But of course.
So they had junk fast food (with fruits and veg I made here with love) and I heated up a frozen tamale and had that with chips and salsa. I had nachos with guacamole and salsa for lunch and I guess I’m just stuck on that theme. I do believe I could eat Mexican food every day (as long as I can throw in a random cheeseburger once and a while). Most of it is good for you. Maybe not the three cheese queso, but a girl’s got to live right?!
Anyway, as it turns out, we’re all too tired to do anything. So here it is, the evening of my daughters 16th birthday and she’s in her bed watching You-Tube vids on her laptop and I’m sitting in my room typing on my laptop (Exactly Right Now) and C is in his room reading a book. We’re so exciting. In all fairness, tomorrow is the day her and I have set aside to spend most of the day together doing whatever she wants for her birthday. That will be the quality one on one time I’m needing.
I wish I had a treadmill again. I really want to walk off this meal and I don’t want to go to the gym. I guess I could just walk around my house but I kinda don’t want to get out of bed either. /lame
That’s the short story on the Sweet 16. I’m hoping for a more restful night of sleep tonight because tomorrow is going to be one loooooonnnng day!
So Exciting, My Eyes Can’t Stay Open,
