Yep, I got invited to one, went in the middle of a snowstorm, sat next to my two sister in law’s (so I got really good at blocking out the fact they are married to my brothers and they do have sex with them)
Unfortunately, they didn’t sell naked men cards because to be quite honest, my brain is still a bit scarred from my night of innocent card playing with naked men from the 80’s. (read here for a catch up)
I was kind of hoping to find an updated pack of them so at least I wouldn’t ever have to see a third leg AND a mullet in one sitting.
I did come home with two items and to my hubby’s disappointment they had nothing to do with the bedroom. But I will have really smooth legs after shaving, that doubles as hair conditioner. Maybe next time I will be braver and go for the lotion that is an aphrodisiac as well as edible.
I mean a married woman doesn’t need any reason to multiply the quantity does she??
That was Saturday night. Sunday I drove an hour to my cousin’s house for a Pampered Chef party. You know what this means? I said I would and I DID. Meaning, I was invited and I went. I followed-through. Go me!
Two days in a row worth of other people’s parties where I should spend money that I really shouldn't. I did manage to drag my girls to the Pampered Chef party so I didn't feel too guilty for being too social, (typical working Mom's guilt) which may not have been the best idea. On the drive home they were high on sugar and I ended up having to threaten my little one because she was giggling too much. (Yeah, lovely Mom moment- would have made a great Super Nanny clip)
Instead of buying what I wanted to at the PC party, I spontaneously booked a party.
WHY DO I DO THESE THINGS TO MYSELF??
I am the girl who is not a fan of spending a weekend having to clean the house for a bunch of people to come over, mess it up and then clean it all over again just for 2 hours worth of fun. But I get wrapped up in the SELL of the party and find myself thinking:
I could do this in all my spare time…. It would be a GREAT way to bring in extra money so that we can buy a house, take vacations – heck we could WIN vacations with all my party hosting............
I DON’T EVEN COOK!! AT ALL!!
I did tell the host I wanted a co-ed party on a Saturday night in MARCH. The hubby thinks this is a HORRIBLE idea. I even suggested we could be a TEAM and sell Pampered Chef stuff in all of our spare time, that it would be like having a date night out, never mind that we would have to pay for a sitter and have NO lives whatsoever....
and then he splashed water in my face and I came out of it.
Now I am wondering how to get out of the whole darn thing??
Darn in-home party hosts and their success stories and my gullible weakened WEEKEND brain!
These events made my weekend fly by and after a very hectic and slightly stressful week at work, I’m a little bummed that it is already Sunday evening with nothing to look forward to but freezing temps and a potential sick day for my youngest as she is sound asleep on the couch with a fever and a sore throat.
YES this is the same one that got yelled at for giggling too much in the car. I should have known – you would think after three kids I would KNOW that it was a sure sign, something was happening in that little body – and here, I yelled at her for being goofy.
I’m SURE I will have some exciting things to say this week. But for now, I’ve got to go get ready for bed because I also promised myself I would get up every day this week at 4:30am to work out. Would hate to break my streak of keeping commitments and promises NOW…..
How was your weekend?
