Ants in My Pants

I feel like I haven't blogged in a while, but in reality it has only been a few days. It probably feels that way cause I have been BORED OUT OF MY GODFORSAKEN MIND!!!!!!

Ugh.

I haven't written cause there simply has not been anything to report. Been home all weekend doing nothing except laundry, dishes, etc etc. We ventured out and went to a great bar-b-que place last night, but other than that, it's been the same ole' same ole'. Tried to get a sitter, but no go. God, I need to get out of the house. I've been fiending to just go sit at the casino for a couple hours. It shouldn't be so hard to get us there, but as all of you mothers know, it is. Sometimes I TRULY wish we lived in my hometown where my folks and my sister live. For the most part, we don't really have a back-up system here when it comes to babysitting. I have one friend that has watched the kids for many years, but she's got her own stuff going these days. Which is great, don't get me wrong... but I have been unable to find another sitter that I trust as much. My in-laws are always going going going, so even when they do watch the kids, I almost feel guilty for having even asked them. So this is the result that often occurs. I sit here feeling like I have ants in my pants, needing to just get out for a mere few "childless" hours, and it doesn't happen that often these days.

*sigh* Man, I sound super duper whiney, don't I? Don't get me wrong. I'm grateful for my family- my beautiful, smart, creative children and my handsome, funny, loving husband. But man. Sometimes a little veg out time is just NEEDED! Let me modify that to say: a little veg out time NOT AT HOME is needed.

So I'm done... I've fulfilled my blogging quota for the day and I've gotten my bitchiness off my chest. Back to my book. Hope everyone else is having a great weekend!!

I hear ya! We've been home (or not too far from it)all weekend; sick girl, me: headache, nothing to do! I so identify with the "no sitter" syndrome--we don't have family for 600+ miles! Oh well...there's always books and blogging! :)

Making myself some noodles in soy sauce at the moment. Always cheers me up:)

Wish I were there to give you a break.....you know I'd watch the kids in a heartbeat....they help my soul (especially 'cause they're living the rock 'n roll lifestyle these days, lol)

Miss you sooooooooooo much! I need to e-mail you! (I'm going to do that NOW!)
