Calgon, take me away!

One week from tomorrow SJ and I will be jetting off to this place for some much needed R & R. Well it will be probably be only one of those "R"s b/c we are going with 3 other couples and when we get together without our children we tend to have a REALLY good time! Very little sleep, lots of food and drink, and lounging about on boats and pool decks is the norm for this group. I can't friggin wait. If you want to see the cast of characters click here . You may have to wait a minute or two for the movie to load and it is just the opening sequence to the movie I made from our last adventure. This time a 4th couple is joining us so there will be even more fun!


Life here is just about more than I can handle. The adoption has stalled to unprecedented wait times and our beautiful home in this quaint seaside village WON'T sell. I am not taking it personally b/c no one in our price range has sold either but damn I am pissed. I know the market has tanked pretty much everywhere but frankly unless you want to whore out your house and give it away, it is a long and uncertain road. If we can't sell the house we don't go. I have spent 18 months jumping through hoop after hoop trying to get things lined up for us to go and now the freeking housing market has screwed us! As a total control freak, this is more than I can handle. The good news is that I am up to about 20 lbs in weight loss due to the stress so that is an added bonus. I fit into a size 2 pair of pants today but no matter how pleased I was about that, I knew it wasn't right so I didn't buy them. I should NEVER be a size 2.

If I fit into anything that had a 2 in it...I'd buy it and I would leave it on the counter for all to see......

Have a great time- it is so deserved........and I say buy the outfit, cut the tag out and sew it on the outside- even if only until the stress is reduced milk the 2 for all its worth!!!!!!

Buy the pants...we all know vanity sizing is BS but we love it anyway:) If it were 1984 you would be a size 4.

Hope your house sells soon!
