About Last Night...

My friend KB emailed me last night and signed off wishing me a magical evening. This is what I wrote back.

You know, tonight was kind of magical now that I"m thinking back. The sister right after me lives just around the block. She called at 6 and said that if we were hungry or bored to come on over, she was BBQing. Yum. My kids were running around in their unders, so I got them wrangled and headed over. Chris wasn't off of work yet but came over when he was done. The night was so gentle. Very low key. I played Guitar Hero and rocked on Cherry Pie, but totally got booed off of the stage 6 times in a row on Heart Shaped Box. And then I made it through. HA! And I didn't have to cook.

Well, I should have thought how this might jinx me, but oh no! I just typed along my merry way! And then Ivy woke up at 1. Then Bec woke up at 1 and stayed up until 4! Yes, 4 a.m. before I but him in the car and drove him to sleep. The only others that were out were runners and the paper deliverers. I'm so tired. I'm going back to bed!

PS I am now addicted to Guitar Hero, but I was before as well. I just hadn't admitted it to you all yet. My nephews and brother have formed bands but no one wants me in theirs yet. Just wait. They'll be begging to sign me in a couple of weeks. I'll make them wallow! Especially my nephews. No respect for their elders.

Bless your heart! I feel like I jinxed your evening last night! Poor dear!

Just an aside here but I can't imagine being up at 4 a.m. to run unless something really big and fierce were chasing me. Ugh. I guess that is just me. :)

I hope you are able to get a good nap. Will write more later!

xo... KB :)

Oh no! I was up last night too... and the night before.. having trouble sleeping myself.. Wish I'd known you were up we could have called each other and at least commiserated together!

Hope you feel better then I do today!

Much love,

Glad you had a wonderful night with family.

I can't imagine being up at 4, unless the kids are sick, but just because they're awake, I haven't done this since Marissa was little, long time ago.

Try and get some rest.

Isn't it addicting! I've only played once but I kinda liked it too.

And I played a friends Wii, and it's awesome!!!! Seriously even better than Guitar Hero.
