Headed back home for the weekend

I got yelled at by BFFg last night:-) I called her to confirm plans for tonight when we get to Chicago, and she scolded me for not calling her for like a week. And it is totally my fault...she called me last weekend and I never called her back. Very unlike me, I usually have trouble going more than two days without talking to her.

I am in extra trouble because I talked to BFFb for almost an hour a couple of days ago and she is jealous:-P (for the newer readers, the two BFF's were introduced here... there are some references in that post to the High School Boyfriend story, which I wrote just after New Years if you missed it. It's looooong.)

Anyway, we are off to Chicago after work and school tonight. Hopefully we can get going quickly and get in at a reasonable hour. The itinerary is pretty similar to our usual trips there, save for one exception: Munchkin is staying with her brother this time instead of her Uncle. Despite the aforementioned protests (she is kidding, she loves me:-)) the BFF's are picking us up at the airport and I am staying with them.

We are gonna go out and meet some friends tonight if we get there in time, and goshdarnit if maybe I won't get a little bit drunk;-) Being off the leash is fun sometimes! (I am referring to the "Mom" leash, although I suppose it could also apply to the "Boyfriend" leash, since he is not coming with us.) It won't be too bad, though, since I need to be bright-eyed for my very important breakfast date with the adorable and charming Tinkerbelle.

After breakfast I am gonna take her bowling, which will be fun because it is the first time I have ever really had her alone. After that we (including her Mom) are going to my aunt's house for a barbecue. Tinkerbelle and her Mom are pretty much completely integrated into the family at this point, which is sort of weird...even though I met them first, she is definitely an insider and I am definitely a "visitor" at this point. Ahh well, I can only live in one place at once...

Munchkin is going to spend some time with her Dad's family, but I don't exactly know what they are all up to. Hopefully not brainwashing her to hate me...lol. Then finally, seeing {the members of} our Mom's family {that I still speak to} for brunch on Sunday morning, and then back home.

So, that is my exciting weekend:-) Anyone got something better on tap?

Povosgirl - Thanks:-) I wonder if I will get a present...?

Jordan - I'd rather work than hang out with some of my family memners...lol. But I don't have to see the bad ones!

Double A - Is it totally out of the question to get video of that?

It's hard to top bowling (seriously, I love bowling. Especially 10 pin. And i know everyone trashes the shoes, but I think they are kinda cute), but it's my brothers birthday this weekend so we plan on a huge party to celebrate all 23 years of his life. It should be a good time. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
