Due Date Screening

We have not been to the movies in FOREVER. We took last night off for a date. A little PF Changs and the screening of "Due Date". I gave it a 4, the boy gave it a 6. It was a little too stupid funny for me and I am not a big fan of stupid, funny, pot-smoking movies. They kind of just seem over the top to me, which I am sure this was supposed to be, but still.

We have missed SO many good screenings lately. Between work (which is killing me at the moment), the house (the projects just keep growing in number), organizing the house (my closets, dressers and clothes are a mess) and JLM are keeping me beyond busy. I keep waiting for life to get back to "normal" but what I have decided is that I somehow need to adjust to the new normal and figure out a different comfort zone. I have had to "let go" of so many things. Not being able to do my best work at work and letting people down because I am only human and I can only do what I can do. Letting go at home and realizing that things are not just going to happen at a wiggle of my nose. Realizing that I just can't do it all.

No meal planning going on here, not a lot of relaxing and enjoying life at the moment, haven't seen friends in a while, not a lot of wine club event planning, haven't been out and about very often and just trying to get caught up on sleep and life in general.

We had friends for dinner this past Saturday.Our friends J & K are moving back out East, to NYC. I am REALLY going to miss them. They were my personal piece of "home" here. They are the only ones that can relate to life out East for me. We can talk about the same people and places that I knew for 18 years, they can relate to having to adjust to life in Minnie, they can relate to trying to fit in somewhere else. I am bummed, but I also know that this is a great step for them and the right thing for both of them. I am really happy for them. We had 12 for dinner, I did the best I could, but probably should have planned something a little easier. This was the first dinner with the new oven, and I didn't have the timing down right. We were able to set the table for 12 pretty comfortably though. It was the first time most of our friends had seen the house. We kept things to the main floor due to the fact that the upstairs is a major work in progress. The boy almost has the master bath finished, it was a lot of work, but I just LOVE the color that we picked out, and the updates that we are making.

The only room that I feel is "done" is the 1/2 bath on the main floor. We still need to find a piece of art, but we painted, changed the hardware including the toilet handle, new faucet, knobs on the vanity, a different mirror, toilet paper holder and a shelf. Its "almost" done, but of course I would love for it to be COMPLETE!

In the mean time I TRY to keep track of lists and everything else going on, but realistically, it is close to impossible. . . .I miss my blog, and reading blogs. . . .the boy keeps saying there is a light at the end of the tunnel, I hope so with work. . . .I will try to get some pictures of the house uploaded later. I am off to the airport!
