Last night I went on one of my mommy dates. Or mom's night out I guess you'll call it. Since we've been down to one car for almost a friggin year now I only get to leave the house to go grocery shopping on Saturday (but I have to get the car back at a certain time so husband can run his errands too) and go to church on Sunday. I'm fine with being a homebody but sometimes I don't get to go grocery shopping or sometimes I just plain don't wanna go to church.
You know what that means?
I won't leave the house until the next weekend.
And how sad is that? Groceries and church is going out for me. SAD ON A CRACKER!
We're getting the husband his own vehicle as soon as the tax return comes in. Yay!
Like I mentioned before I don't mind hanging out at home, but I'd love to have the option to go when I wanna go. So because I can't do that - sometimes I'll snap as soon as husband gets home, rush to the bedroom to put on some clothes and make up, tell him to feed himself and have the kids in bed by 8pm.
BYE SUCKAH! I'M GOING TO GO NOT DO MOM THINGS!
There's nowhere for me to go though (it's Texarkana, folks) and I don't really have any friends to hang out with and I'm not one who likes to go get felt up in the dark at a honky tonk so I'll just go to the local chain book store and have some coffee or go to a store and look at all the crap I can't buy. I'll get myself a milkshake on the way home, take the scenic route and sing some angsty Incubus song at the top of my lungs.
"PARDON ME WHILE I BURRRST INTOOOO FLAAAAMES"
Someone needs to create mom-angst rock music. Meh, I bet it already exists. If not, maybe I'll just do it myself.
So yeah, I'm wearing a skirt pulled up above the bosoms to make a dress. Cedar's war paint is courtesy of her big brother who decided to tattoo the both of them without my permission.
Marker tattoos are allowed in my home - just as long as the markers are washable.
Does that make me weird that I let my kids draw on themselves and me as well?
River calls marker tattoos "hoo hoos" He loves getting and giving "hoo hoos".
Maybe one day he'll grow up to be a famous and fabulous hoo hoo artist?
I discovered a store with dollar jewelry and accessories in the mall. The flowers and jewelry were all a dollar. The woven rings were buy-one-get-one from Romancing the Stone (Earthbound Trading Company) clearance for $3 total.
The God's eye were from Romancing the stone as well for $3 total. Loverly. The store is closing and everything is getting marked down dirt cheap. I'm about to go wipe them out as soon as I can!
Do you like hanging out alone?
Does adulting/parenting make you feel a little angsty too?
