Lookie here, I took a little break now didn’t I? Well, it is about 300 degrees here in Vegas, Gross, sticky and muggy. Even our weathercaster calls it soupy. The air went out at the station and we were all a tad stanky. Hopefully it will rain this weekend to put an end to this madness.
My parents have been on vacation all week and you all know how I do when key people in my life are gone. I do not do well. I am a very selfish little girl who likes thing to stay the way they are. So tomorrow I am taking the girls to Ice skating by myself. L I know what you are thinking, in one sentence I am talking about 400 degree weather and the next I am talking up ice skating. But there is a place right up the street from us. It is very popular with the ice hockey crowd.
I find myself constantly thinking about Stace and her baby. Stace AND HER BABY!!! This is a girl who I used to drive around with in her dad’s 300Z blasting Salt and Pepa’s “Push it” with the T tops off. This chick used to party with me! And forget the fact that I have two kids and have had them for almost 10 years... We are not talking about me; we are talking about Stace, my friend with the blue tail and pastel glasses. The girl I introduced to my mom as “my punk friend” back in 1984 even though she was wearing a white polka dot dress and white tights.
Anyway, I have been thinking not so much about her but about that baby. Jeff and I are still on the fence about having another. There are so many pros and cons that I am about to blow my mind. Money is a big con. We are always worried about money. I pay $200 in daycare a WEEK now. $200! …a week! That is a house payment a month. Next year Emma will be in public school next year and her after school care will be only $30 a week. That is heavenly. Another con is that I am almost 37 years old. Con concon. But the pro would be that I may not be finished yet. What do you think? I am torn. I do know that if I do have another I will partake in the epidural cocktail. Stace, you are 500 times the woman I am!
