Here's my journal at it's new home. I really like it here.
Andy and I had our first weekend together in 7 weeks. It was nice and relaxing. I almost didn't know what to do with myself having him around to help and to socialize with and to love. Friday night was great. My friend kept the boys and Andy and I drove up to Durham to my favorite mall and we did some window shopping and ate dinner at this incredible Italian place. I had Chicken Saltimboca and it was SO good. I barely ate 1/3 of it and it made a nice leftover dinner on Saturday. Even Andy couldn't finish his Sirloin al Forno. I had a total Senifeld moment there though.
I went to the ladies room. I walk in and there is an older woman, between 50 and 60 talking to her friend who is still in a stall. They are being very loud and giddy. I go to the bathroom and come out to wash my hands. The woman who had been in the stall is bent over with her butt sticking out, holding the top of her pants together, while the other lady is attempting to zip her pants shut. They looked very wealthy and were quite done up...big guady rings and jewels, freshly sculpted hair dos and color jobs, huge fake nails, high heels, trendy pants suits, the works. I noticed 2 glasses of wine on the sink counter. They were carrying on and on pretty loudly. Apparently, the lady bent over couldn't get her pants zipped. They were dress pants and zipped only in the back. So here is what the conversation sounded like (and yes they were yelling):
Pants Lady: "YOU HAVE TO GET THESE ZIPPED, COME ON!"
Friend: "I'm trying. I'm trying."
Pants: "I have NO F'ING UNDERWEAR ON. I AM SERIOUS, I DON'T WEAR UNDERWEAR, so you HAVE to get these things zipped."
High pitched, giddy laughter.
Pants: "I'M F'ING BOMBED and I HAVE NO UNDERWEAR ON and I can't zip my pants, come on, ZIP 'Em. You have to PULL, PULL, PULL, PULL HARD, COME ON!"
Friend: "If I were'nt so F'ING BOMBED I might be able to do this. Here YOU try." (Points to ME!!!!)
Me: "Uhhh, okay, I can try."
Pants: "COME ON, CAN'T YOU SEE I HAVE NO UNDERWEAR ON? PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SEE MY F'ING CRACK IF i GO OUT THERE LIKE THIS. COME ON AND PULL, UH, PULL, UH." (she is thrusting her butt back and forth)
Me: (trying to zip this zipper which is clearly all messed up) "I am trying. Wow, this thing is really messed up, I don't think we are going to get it zippered. I'm sorry I can't help."
(Bathroom cleaning attendent walks in and is quite appalled at the scene going on in a very nice, upscale restaurant.)
Friend: "Maybe SHE can try. Come on, try and zip my friend's pants, she has NO F'ING UNDERWEAR ON!"
(Bathroom lady looks frightened, but attempts, without saying a word. I look on.)
Friend: "Does anyone have a safety pin?"
Me (totally trying to be funny now): "Maybe if we got a pair of pliers we could get a better grip on the zipper and pull it up." (Drunk pants lady is shaking her butt all over the place and YES, I can totally see the top of her crack and she most certainly is NOT wearing underwear.)
Pants Lady: "YOU (pointing right at me and in my face), YOU...ENOUGH WITH THE PLIERS JOKE...I CAN'T GO BACK OUT THERE WITH MY F'ing CRACK hanging out for the world to see."
Me: "Well, ladies, I'm sorry I can't help. Good luck with that."
(I leave and can barely contain my laugher as I head back to my table. I didn't see them again.)
Like I said, these women appeared to be pretty wealthy ladies and were making a total ass out of themselves. It was SO funny.
Anyway, we got home around midnight and the boys did great. I didn't even call once to check in on them and we were gone for about 7 hours. My friend said they went to sleep like little angels and she couldn't believe how well they slept.
Today we just chilled out. Andy got the lawn mowed and I got a little bit of organizing done in the back room. We worked together to clean up the disaster in the boys room. I got Quinn down for a nap and ran out to Target to shop for Easter basket candy. I love that store, but it's so dangerous. I dropped $50 somehow. They seem to be getting summer stuff in too and I found all kinds of cool things in every aisle. Got home and found Andy napping next to Huey who was watching a video. For dinner I made a Chicken and pasta dish with sundried tomato cream sauce and it was SO good.
Tomorrow we have our Easter Egg Hunt with the mom's club which should be fun. That's about it.
