which always means I’m about to write a long one.
Where to start?
It’s 10:51 pm on Sunday night and I cannot believe the weekend is essentially over. I always say that, but it felt especially fast this weekend.
The party was a fantastic time. It’s hard to believe this started back in 2012 as 7 people playing drinking games at my dining room table. It means a lot to me that we have kept it going all these years. That very first party was such a big deal to me because of all it signified.
There was a point last night, however, where I stepped outside to spend a few minutes alone because the sheer number of people in my house was somewhat overwhelming. Hosting a big party like this is hard. It takes a toll. The entire family is exhausted today. Even the pets.
This afternoon the family headed out to Rockwoods Reservation for Jackson’s cub scout initiation/bobcat badge ceremony. There was hiking followed by a short ceremony and then a picnic. Jackson was super happy and proud to be a part of it, which made it all worth it. I will say though that I absolutely hate the socializing with the other parents. That just isn’t my thing. I know it sounds awful, but I don’t want to be friends with the other parents. I don’t want to stand around and make small talk with them. I will do it for the kids, but fuck it sucks.
Oh and for the record, I think it’s weird as shit that there are girls in the boy scouts, like what in the actual fuck is that all about? And that is a rhetorical question, btw. I don’t need anybody on the internet trying to lecture me about it. I’m feminist as fuck and yet I still think it’s ridiculous.
So I’ve been logging my exercise for the past week and it looks like I did 12 miles. Sunday started the new week and I did 3 miles today. I’m feeling good about it and I intend to keep logging. I’ve found it to be quite motivating.
I wore so much eyeliner and mascara last night that it took me three tries to get it all off. I kind of dug the look though. It would have looked better if I had managed to get the false lashes on, but they were a pain in my ass so I gave up on them. Maybe another time. I need to watch some YouTube tutorials.
We finished The Haunting of Hill House tonight. Highly recommended.
I saw a shooting start tonight on our walk. I love it when that happens. We also saw some random fireworks. It was odd. Just two and then nothing.
This upcoming week is going to be a bit nuts, but in a good way. I’m excited about it.
Wow this was all over the place. You’re welcome.
