Um...I can't think of a title right now

Well, I made the mistake of staying awake until the absurdly late hour of 11:00 last night, and I am suffering for it today. After chicken fingers (which were good...french fries, not so much), I had an Open House at Munchkin's school, and then got sucked into Project Runway. Then, voila, bedtime had come and gone...

It was actually sort of timely that I wrote yesterday about carving out some Munchkin time. Turns out that the new year has brought some problems with a few of the older girls at school (boy-related...and not even a boy that she likes). As far as I can tell, she is kinda confused as to exactly how she is involved in whatever social drama is afflicting these girls, and to exactly what she may have done to tick them off so much.

As much as I laud her maturity level, and her overall togetherness...I do need to remember that she is a teenager, and that these years are difficult for most kids, even the ones who have the natural social graces that she does. I am not sure that she needs vigilant supervision, I just need to make sure that she doesn't get lost in the new household order;-). We have a date for lunch after her soccer game tomorrow, and then the pretend sisters are gonna join us for some fall clothes shopping. And I will likely need like three naps to get through that;-)

Let's see what else...we are supposed to go to this guy's restaurant here for dinner with some of The Boy's friends tonight, but I am on the fence. I would love to see them all, and I have wanted to go to that place for a while (c'mon, he is on TV...it must be good, right?). But I am just so fucking tired all the time, and I also don't wanna be the only person not drinking...that will sort of stick out in this group. Maybe I will try and get home for a nap this afternoon:-).

The weekend is supposed to be gorgeous, but very seasonal...sunny, dry and a crisp. I am going to try and be outside as much as possible while we can still enjoy the weather. Fortunately, I have a lot of school work that just involves reading, so I can sit outside and do that. It could also be time for a very long Sunday morning walk for some pretend house shopping:-) Haven't done that since the Spring!

And by the way, I am going to stop complaining about being tired all the time...starting right now.

Teenage girls can be so catty sometimes. I don't miss those years one bit :) I stayed up late last Saturday and felt horrible for the next couple of days. I found drinking a ton of water helps too!

Oh, I really hope you felt up to going to Olive's tonight! I went to Bonfire two years ago, and it was an experience to die for! I can't wait to go back, and I'd love to try Olive's.

Girls are just so nasty at that age, aren't they? Well, some don't get any better with age ;) I hope Munchkin is able to get through it all relatively unscathed.
