Oh, hey...

I haven't blogged in eight months...yikes! And no, I don't have anything major today to tell you (and who is "you" anyway? Not sure anyone still would see this...)

But, I'm tired, and I am super hungover and I powered through the morning and now I have totally run out of energy and have no desire to work. So, here I am!

I'm tired and hungover because I was out with Munchkin and her friends last night. I still have dinner with her every Thursday (my very favorite time of the week!), but last night I got talked into going out with her and her friends afterwards...not a good idea. This may come as a surprise, but I am not, in fact, 21 years old anymore...

I didn't go to sleep until 3:30, and I stayed at Munchkin's apartment...which means I woke up at 6:00, showered, stole some fresh clothes from her and came home in what I can best describe as an Uber of Shame before the girls woke up:-).  Cuz responsible, that's why!!!

Anyway, let's see what's new. The girls are loving Kindergarten...they're such big kids now! They have new friends and they're learning to read and do math and all kinds of other fun stuff. LK doesn't love the dress code...she wants to wear jeans every day, and she is supposed to wear either khakis or a skirt and tights. The skirt is a non-starter...but I found some khaki jeans that are acceptable. She will probably have to get over this as she gets older. (Also, she really only wants to wear things that have pictures or sharks or lions on them...)

Munchkin is most of the way through her Junior year, which is just staggering. Her 21st birthday is coming up in a month and a half, and I am not totally sure that any of us are going to survive. The planning has been ongoing for quite a while, and her pretend sisters have maybe gone a *little* overboard. The four of us, three of her college friends and three high school friends. Katy bar the door...

She's got a job in Boston this summer, which is awesome. Tinkerbelle is coming back, too, which will mean that I will finally get both sister under the same roof for an extended period of time! I'm pretty excited about that.

Except for one minor problem, which is that I don't actually have room for them:-D. My plan to have them under the same roof relies on them wanting to share a room...which they may or may not. Alternatively, Munchkin will just spend most nights at either Smoking Hot Roommate's or Big Sis's...I'm not really too worried about it (I'm wondering if any non-property manager has keys to more homes than my sister does...)

Kind of on this subject...we may have bought a house. It's a ton of money and it is a HUGE project and I will curse myself for this 1,000 times before we can move in, but it looks like we may have done it. It's a very old, currently unlivable, very vertical (3,100 sq ft on five stories!) townhouse near here that will take probably a year to renovate and so much money that I don't really want to think about it.

But they accepted our offer, pending a couple little, it looks like it may happen. I will reserve excitement until after the inspection!
