House Full of Kidlets

I always wanted to have the house where everyone wanted to hang out. It seems I may have outdone myself. Both best friends spent the night last night. I'm pretty sure that at one point I was curled up in the corner rocking myself and whispering "Shut the Fuck Up", but that could have just been a nightmare.

Hip Hop's parents picked her up this morning. I dropped Stink Bug off at his house at noon. I get home and the freaking doorbell rings with a kid saying "Hey Miss Half Assed Housewife! Can I come play?"

On the upside, I'm dangerously close to having the laundry done and I have big plans for a cheap dinner at Tin Star tonight. Kids Eat Free on Sundays and I have a coupon for a free queso that I got from being on their email list. Oh yeah, don't forget $3.95 Margaritas too.

All of this followed by a marathon of True Blood, Hung, and Entourage. I have such an exciting life. Not.

PS. If you like Tin Star even a little, sign up for their email list. I got a coupon for a free taco plate right off the bat and have gotten several decent coupons since.


  1. Ah kidlets. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.

    They can be incredibely amusing. But then again, so is TV and the Internet.

  2. You are better people than me-- I am home alone with just two dogs and wondering if I will go to hell for throwing them out to sleep tonight.

  3. Mmm, free tacos. Never heard of Tin Star---is that a Texas thing?

    As far as wanting to be the popular house on the block, I've always aspired to that, too. I think it's because my parents were always a little eccentric, so I was always trying to get away. Last year, I attended the wedding of my best childhood friend, and when we were reminiscing, she said, "Well, your mom always was a little, uh, different." I guess being The Popular Mom has its drawbacks though.


Don't be a wimp. Talk to me!
