Last night I went to a cocktail-like party - we won tickets and it was free drink and appetizer mingle to celebrate the website kidoinfo.com , which I actually like a lot. . . . there were lots of women my age and its been so long since we've left our pawtucket digs, I was on the look out for fashionistas and hipness in general. I think I was expecting some New York. But the East Side is what it is, I guess. All the hip was the same sort of hip. I'm not exactly a standout myself, but I do like to see standouts... Some of the folks were parents whose kids go to school with mine, and they were by far, the hippest. Made me feel slightly cool by association. I did have some good conversation regarding mothering, and I did re-meet some people that I like. and I liked it. Its always good to be talking to smart people who know a little or a lot about what you're on about. I am not exactly a social champ, and I think I handled my lack of hearing fairly well. I definitely have a love-hate relationship with crowds at this point. At least my hair was clean. IT may be all that I can do to get on the path towards hip, or, on second thought, it may be steering me away from hip. not sure anymore.
- last night both boys slept in their OWN beds for the ENTIRE NIGHT! stop the clocks. If this is what happens when I leave for a few hours, guess who gets to leave every night? EVERY night.
- J's about to go away for a week long conference and it'll be nice to have a set routine for the week but we'll miss him and the boys will freak out as they realize the longevity of the trip but we can stay up late and all sleep in the same bed if need be so getting by won't stress ME out. . .
-I have gotten past financial hysteria. I'm working on chanting my way through our lack of money and werewithal... realizing that we have plenty for today. and I should just make it a point to 'look away' from the other days. Today is what I've got. and J's office might be spartan at first, but then we can slowly add chairs and exam tables and so on... his patients already love him. they'll forgive him the starting point. . .
