Listen, I realize I am not "old", but I am reaching an age where I am not a "young adult" anymore. I am a full on, have-way-too-many-responsibilities-to-be-immature, adult. Basically, what I am saying is holy crap, I can not party like I used to. Wait, rephrase that. I can totally party like I used to. However, the recovery period is longer, and more devastating ;)
Friday night, I was super tired. Not really sure why so, I am going to blame the weather. It's been raining and cloudy for like twenty seven weeks it seems like. So, Bee, the Kiddo's, and I stayed close to home. However, apparently house work does not do itself and my BFF Rose can't seem to find where she misplaced her magic wand that makes all things "better", so I figured since she was going to be coming over this weekend and the house was a wreck, I should probably clean. So, I did. I cleaned for two hours making it all nice and neat in the house. Kiddo's saw the look in my eye and instantly ran for their bedrooms. Bee played X-box. Whateve. I like cleaning myself anyway. Seriously. I finished up, and then made some dinner. We ate. We lounged. I had a couple glasses of wine, and then we went to bed.
Saturday started out early. Well, for Bee anyway. He woke up around seven-ish. He told me his back was hurting a lot and he couldn't lay in bed any longer (besides, to a man who wakes up at 4:45am every day, 7am is sleeping in) Usually, I will get up with him, but Saturday I was tired and said "ok" and rolled back over and went back to sleep. I made it till 9am when hearing him kill bad guys in the other room finally woke me up. Then I proceeded to get ready, because we had a fundraiser for the team to attend at noon that went alllll day.
Everyone else got ready and we were out the door by 11:30. Luckily, the weather was decent. A little chilly for my liking, by then again, I wear a jacket when it's 80. This was our Volley Ball and Corn hole Tournament fundraiser with all you can eat BBQ. This was a HUGE money maker last year. And...Well....this year? It was a total flop :( We had 80-100 people last year. This year we had about 17. Of that 17, maybe 6 guys who were players for our team showed. We had 3 players from the team we are playing this weekend, and the rest were family/friends of the players that showed up. We were so disappointed. I would really hate to hear the ear lashing the guys are going to get tonight. There is no excuse. It went from 12-9pm. I mean, you can't show and support your team for an hour? They are only hurting themselves because more money we make at fundraisers, the less that comes out of their pockets...but whatever..
BFF Rose came out though. We had a blast. We drank lots (the team got 20% of alcohol sales) and I even managed to get out and play a game of Volley Ball! I haven't played in 15 years probably. I have learned though, that I am still no good at the sport lol! After 9, we left and all went over to another player's house where we continued to drink and then went into the hot tub. After that, Bee drove us all home (he was not drunk like the rest of us). Apparently BBF Rose drunk dialed her ex-bf who has been trying to get her back for months. Told him they should be together. And somehow hers and my bathing suit bottoms ended up in her backseat (We had changed into our street clothes before leaving the house...I don't really remember that though...lol) We came home and went to bed. She crashed on the couch. (PS- The kids left waaay before the drinking started btw)
Sunday, I didn't have a headache or anything, but my tummy was upset and if I bent over, I had the spins. I hate that. I went to the store and got breakfast stuff and made breakfast for everyone. We ate and hung out and BFF Rose left around 1pm. By that time, I felt fine, but I felt as though someone zapped all my energy! I didn't even want to throw shoes on to go get my car that we left at our friends house. Bee felt the same way. We begrudgingly went and got my car and he grabbed Wendy's on the way home. After that, we did not leave our chairs. We quietly played on our laptops and watched T.V. Kiddos cleaned their rooms and hung out outside most of the day. Even when Monday rolled around, I just felt so zapped. I think I am good on drinking for awhile lol!
Monday night I finally felt like I had some energy. Bee and I grabbed the kids and went grocery shopping. We were supposed to do that Sunday, but didn't ave the energy. Afterwards, we took the kids to CiCi's for dinner. CiCi's is a treat in our house. Anytime the kids do something well, clean their rooms, or they celebrate anything, CiCi's is where we go. After dinner, we came home and the kids went to bed and we weren't too far behind them.
Today is my last day of work this week. I have been selected for Jury Duty starting tomorrow. It's for our county court of common pleas, so I am there a whole week regardless. Everyone is giving me their condolences, but really, I am excited! I was on jury duty two years ago and loved it. Wish I had gotten on a case, but none the less, the process fascinated me. I am looking forward to it and I hope I catch a case! ha!
