I'm sorry that I wasn't able to respond to comments yesterday. Y'all seem to have liked the hot dog ad! It's actually part of an ad campaign for the KCafe (Kmart) and represents that they're selling Nathan's hot dogs (wieners), and now, they're only 2 for $2. I have no issue with Nathan's dogs. In fact, I think they're quite tasty. But, they just don't look very appealing in that ad.
Anyway, yesterday was a busy, but fun day. In the morning, I had to make/take 3 really important phone calls, but I also needed to be at a playdate down the street for a local group I joined so Sissy can socialize with other kids her age.
When Buddy was little, I had joined a group in the county where we lived at the time. While I am sure the group dynamics have changed over the years (if that group still exists), I had a really lousy experience with the group at the time. I had never really encountered such snobby people.
I stuck with the group for a few reasons: For Buddy to have a chance to play with other children and learn important socialization skills - For me to have a chance to meet some other stay at home moms and lastly, for a group experience of attending events that I normally wouldn't have done on my own.
When Buddy entered preschool, I stepped back from that group and was so relieved. Shortly thereafter, we also moved to a new county, so I didn't even have to run into some of the snots out doing my errands and such.
When I met a local mom here who told me she had started up a group, I was leery at first, but decided that I needed to make an effort for Sissy's sake.
I'm glad I did.
These moms are down to earth and really nice. The playdate went well, but of course, left all us moms exhausted! When you get a houseful of 4 and unders together, it's always interesting!
I had considered participating in HNT (Half Naked Thursday), but in reviewing the shots I took last night, I think even the three that turned out presentable may even cross the line for my little old blog here.
Oh, hell... might as well.
