Ramblings.. .. ..

Not sure what else to title this one. Yes, I'm at a loss of words. Worn out I guess.

This weekend was fairly good, though. On Saturday I took the boys to see Hotel for Dogs. It was actually a very cute movie. I haven't liked the last few 'kid' movies I have seen (Space Chimps... omg, torture)... But this movie was really cute. It was so cute to hear all the kids cheering and clapping and giggling at different parts of the movie. And it ranged from little kids to teens. Heck, I was even laughing through parts of it. Though I'm still not sure what I enjoyed more, the movie or splurging on the calories and having popcorn and a coke freeze.. .. ..

That evening we went to my (ex) BIL's to hang out. It's weird, I'm not really sure what to call him. A friend of theirs stopped by and he wasn't sure what to call me either. I guess it's probably not normal for the ex-inlaws to hang out with you. I think the awkwardness of not knowing "who" I was kinda made it real that I don't really fit there anymore. I love spending time with them and still consider them my family and friends, but I guess I'm starting to wonder if they feel the same or if they just feel bad for me. And I don't want any pity. Mom was acting differnt. I am pretty sure that she had a great visit with the ex and the new wifey last weekend and I am ... well, being replaced. Which is the natural order of things. Just has me wondering if I've been holding on too tight to something that should just be let go. Again, I don't want any relationships in my life to be out of pity. I guess I should talk to them, just don't have the courage right now .. .. ..

Anywho, rambling ... we ate pizza and watched a horrible movie together. Mom knows how to pick them. LOL. We watched Burn After Reading with George Clooney and Brad Pitt. It was so scatterbrained and ... weird. We laughed and tried to find SOME moral of the story at the end. Not sure we came up with anything good.. .. ..

Sunday the boys and I went to church. It had been a little while, and it was awful good to be back. The message was exactly what I needed to hear and I left feeling better about things. The boys seemed happy to go, too, and we ARE going to make a concerted effort to make it each week.

After church we went to the park. It has been in the mid-high 60's and sunny, so we took advantage of it. The boys ran around for a bit, then it started to cool off so we left. We did some grocery shopping and got all the needs for the weeks menu.

OH I also got something very very very important.. .. .. the sign-up forms for T-Ball for Logan!!! Yea!! We'll sign him up next week and the league starts in March. He is so excited, and so am I. I love watching the kids play. It's so flippin' cute. Then in August soccer starts!! Yea for kids sports!! I can't wait to see how he does and if he enjoys it (fingers crossed).

Today has just been a lazy day. Yes, I am a blessed government employee who has a three-day weekend. We have all been lazy around the house, though I had plenty to do. I really need to clean out my closet. I need to get all the maternity clothes out (and sold, they won't fit again) and make more room for my new clothes. I love that I have lost the weight, but it sure breaks the budget when you have to buy a whole new wardrobe. Even when shopping clearance... ugg. Oh well.. .. ..

Any volunteers to clean the closet???? .. .. ..

I would wait for them to initiate contact. If they do, they probably want the connection, if they don't you'll get the picture.
Did you not read my review for Burn After Reading?

Have a great week!
