February 1st, 2006



Scott's gone for the week, coming back Friday afternoon, and the house couldn't be cleaner. At least, the kitchen couldn't be cleaner. I got obsessive again today and did some cleaning. Yay me!

Nights alone are always so boring after the kids go to bed, but restful all the same. I will just sit around with heat on my back, work puzzles, watch a little TV, maybe listen to some music. One hour until the kids go to bed. :)

My mother and I have gotten along surprisingly well lately. She's moving into a senior community in two weeks, and we're both very excited. I think if she gets some friends and starts doing different activities, she'll be happier and healthier. We've had some good conversations lately, where usually she won't hold a meaningful conversation. All very observational, no processing of it. Tonight, she offered to buy us dinner, so we sat around eating chicken, spinach and tomato pizza. YUMMY! Next weekend is scheduled for me to spend my time helping her move, unpack in the new apartment, and clean up the old apartment.

THIS weekend, however, is just for fun, fun, fun! We're having a Super Bowl party (we are rooting for Pittsburgh because that is where Jax is from and she's bringing ALL kinds of Steelers stuff.) It looks like we'll have genebob, jillions, Jax, Colleen and Todd with their two kids, Brett and Angela with their two kids, and possibly Chuck and Nona. Woo Hoo! I just can't wait. I was depressed for so long, then had the surgery, so I haven't done much with our friends lately.

Ok, now only 45 minutes until bedtime. There is a piece of cherry pie calling out my name. I must answer.

But first - Happy Anniversary to georgiaskydiver. Love you. Mean it.
