Happy Mother’s Day!

My hubby took the kids to my son’s hockey game this morning and left me with a whole hour to myself.  I’ve cranked up the 80’s love songs CD and I’m trying to rest up from the prom.  Yep–38 years old and I boogied the night away.  Problem is these days, while the mind is willing, the body is not able.  I’ve got shin splints in my right leg from my way-too-aggressive Cotton Eyed Joe!  I’ve got blisters on the tops of both feet from doing the LONG versions of the Cha Cha Slide and Cupid’s Shuffle. 

In addition to sweating bullets on the dance floor, I fixed two dresses, searched for a lost purse, and comforted a girl whose strapless dress fell to her waist during her way-too-aggressive Soul-ja Boy! 

Needless to say, it was a GREAT night!  I go every year and love seeing the kids in such a different setting.  They always seem to rise to the expectations all those super lovely (and expensive) clothes set.  In other words, they clean up good!

It’s the end of the school year and as my family is well-aware, the time when I sort of drop off the radar.  While teachers may live for June, July, and August, May and September are the months that can break a person!  I’m out practically every night for some end-of the-year function either for work or for my own two kiddies who are in middle school.  Both are on honor roll this year, so we have two ceremonies to attend.  How’s that for a long excuse for not blogging more often?

To all the mommies out there–have a great day!
