why is it that at my age, people still have the ability to make me feel like I am in junior high? Seriously, I am 37 and do not have the time or energy for the drama that some people seem to thrive on.
There is this woman who lives in our community and even though I have only lived here for 3.5 years and don't really know her, I know her well enough to know she is a bitch! Plain and simple. She thinks her and her kids shit don't stink and that anytime something happens involving her kids that it's the other person's fault and they owe her or her kids an apology. And, I allowed myself to get all worked up over it when she called to confront me about an incident at hockey practice involving Reilly and her eldest son. Of course, it was the one practice I did not stay for and the picture she painted put my kid in a pretty bad position. Now I am not saying Reilly is innocent but the story she was telling didn't match my kids story or character at all. So I talked to the coach and yep, the story was different alright. Can you imagine, I lost sleep over this on Saturday night? I was worried about seeing her at hockey on Sunday and what I would say to her or how she would treat me. She's the type to that has a "posse" and they all do what she says or base their thoughts and feelings on her. It's sick really. Anyway, Reilly and I apologized to her son and he just stood there. Not saying sorry to Reilly for his part in what transpired at the rink...cause of course he was innocent! Brian is furious and will let her know what he thinks at the first opportunity but that's besides the point.
Does this kinda crap ever stop? Will I ever be too old to be involved in junior high girl behavior? I think I am a pretty confident woman. I know who I am am and what I want out of life. Please tell me I am not alone!!
On a much happier note, we are 28 sleeps away from our trip to Las Vegas!
We even have a back up plan should the weather not cooperate and my Mom can't make it. We are also looking forward to our 3 day school week this week. It'll be nice to hang out all together for a day and I am scrapping for one of them too!
Hockey is winding down for Reilly.
Zack is almost done with basketball.
I think we are putting Gavin in soccer and Carsyn is going to play roller hockey in the city. Should be a busy Spring/Summer!
I have some layouts to share but that will have to wait as I need to head off to bed.
Take care everyone,
