Enjoying a nice evening.....

.......alone with Dh. When the kids are away....mommy and daddy will play.....LOL (insert develish grin). The kids were invited to a birthday party and dh and I enjoyed a romantic evening alone. We retreated to our family room and watched a little television on the couch. Btw, I got my new furniture for the family room a leather recliner sectional in black. I love it. Haven't decided if I am going to get any cocktail or end tables yet? Maybe end tables. I don't know if we need a cocktail table. I will let you guys be the judge! LOL I am almost done with Jaree's room, we got all of her furniture in her room, finally! Still need to get a mirror and new comforter set. But she is using her Proud Family comforter set, that is new, she never used it from her last birthday, but I want her room to be lavender, deep purple, hot pink and pink, so the colors are kinda off.... Dad got the lavendar canopy up, she loves it.... I want her room to be so girly...... My room was super girly and I just think that little girl's room should be frilly....however, I allowed her to pick all of her colors and decor....she decided to fuse her favorite color with mine, her's is pink and mine is purple....so I thought that was cute. Even though purple is her second best color, whatever that means...LOL

There has been so much drama going on with my mom and my sister......it's unreal!
My sister has been thru alot over the last 2 years and I mean alot, but she has really changed. She has distanced herself from the family and acts as if she resents my mom and I for some odd reason, but we have done nothing but be supportive of her and her children. I am like second mom to her kids. OUr children are more like sibling than cousins...... the month I lived with my mom, (sister and kids moved back home too), I practically raised 5 children. I helped them with their homework, cooked their dinners, got their clothes ready for school, took them out....and I feel like it's a kick in my teeth that she is acting this way...

I don't sweat it too much, because I know what she's gone thru, but I don't think it gives her a right to act the way she's acting.....ESPECIALLY towards my mom....I don't play when it comes to my mom, and I think I might have to say something to her about it...

My mom cries everyday, because my sister hasn't formally moved out or told anyone she's moved out, but she doesn't come home, she doesn't tell my mom where she is or atleast give her number where she can be reached, she doesn't answer her cellphone, ....I know she's a grown woman, but when you move back home, it's a difference. When I was there, I told my mom where I was going and if I wasn't going to come home, not because I am a CHILD, because it is RESPECT, so that she wouldn't worry about me ....

My mom is a big WORRY WORT....LOL. I tell her all the time to let things go and stop worrying. My mom is a cancer survivor and need to focus all of her energy on enjoying life! My brother and my mom have become closer, which is a good thing. He was estranged for awhile, but he's a boy.....mom's are always closer to their daughters, atleast in my family anyways....
I can't go a day without talking to my mom....She's my best bud!!!

Anyway, I am getting carpal tunnel, lol...so I will be back sooner than later....
