Tuesday's Random Thoughts

I have lots of blog ideas right now but I just dont feel like putting them together!

So today will be a mishmash of random thoughts!

- Glee!  Tonight!  9:25pm!  Yes tune in at 9:25 - you will miss the first few minutes if you start watching at 9:30.

- The daycare situation is getting weirder.  I spoke with L who is the other mom who lost her spot at the daycare and she said this is not the first time this has happened there!  The Suburban Prince asked me if L is mad at H - she is now!  She also said J (the daycare lady) told her her son could come back for the summer...yeah ok, so take the poor child out, then two months later put him back.  I dont think so.  Anyhoo, L has a friend who is going to look after her son until he goes to school in September and we went to look at the nursery school down the street and it is very nice.  I am certain we will send the Little Prince there as soon as they open - hopefully next week!  And yes, this whole situation fills my head every day.  When you have a child they are the most important thing in your life.  When something happens that affects your child, that becomes the most important thing in your head.  Dont worry, before I had the Little Prince I thought moms were insane too!

- One of the besties and I are going to Picton on Thursday.  She is in advertising so we are going on a 'business trip' to visit a company out there.  The 'business trip' will also include, with any luck, lunch at a quaint little tea room, shopping and lots of gossip.  Natch.

- The Little Prince is turning 2 next week so we are in full party mode here.  Every evening I am putting things together for the party like hats, prizes, favours, decorations etc.  It all matches in colour and the 'logo'...Yes, I am that mom.

- I ran into Rude Mom yesterday - I see her every time I leave the house!  She is invited to a baby shower I am hosting in a couple of weeks and her son is invited to the Little Prince's birthday party.  Someone else we both know bumped into us and rsvp'd to the shower right in front of Rude Friend.  Rude Friend didn't say a word about either party she needs to rsvp to and also hasn't answered the email I sent her asking about her intentions.  She still hasn't even acknowledged the birthday gift we gave her son.  I dont know how long I can keep my mouth shut!

- I have decided to go ahead with my plans to build a cookie empire.  I have 4 great opportunities to hone my piping skills (Little Prince's birthday party, baby shower, SATC after party and the chip truck launch)

- Friends/neighbours/adopted family are getting their new chip truck in a few weeks!  He just retired from the police department so they are very excited about this new venture.  He is going to carry my cookies too!  I am going to get a webpage up and running for him so city folk can google chip trucks and find him!

- The chip truck friends asked me to make cookies for her neice's wedding this summer!  Yay!  We have already picked the design so we just need to get the colours from the bride and I am ready to go!  Yay!

- I cleaned out the front hall closet and got the winter coats and accessories packed away.  I dont know how impressed the Suburban Prince is going to be when I announce that I think the closet should be wallpapered.

- Bestie and I are planning to be in NYC in July so I am gathering information.  I have been there a few times before so I know my way around, I just dont know all the little places like restaurants, diners etc.  If you are near NYC and want to arrange to meet for drinkies or something please email me and we will discuss!

Have a fabulous day!

Great post! You are such a terrific mommy ... LP is going to have the best birthday. H doesn't sounds like a very happy person. Have an awesome day!

Ms. Bake-it said...

Oh dear... I am almost afraid to say I did not know what Glee was and had to google it).

The daycare situation is quite the drama. Sounds like you have made the right decision with selecting the new daycare. I really hope it works out for you. Like I said before, I do remember those days and am glad I do not have that to worry about anymore. Now it is colleges.

As for birthdays, I was that mom too! I love making all their cakes and decorating for their special day.

Sorry, but rude friend does not sound like a friend at all and appears to be extremely inconsiderate!

I wish you the best of luck with your cookie empire! How exciting for you!

I was not adventurous enough to wallpaper our closets, but they sure did get painted to match the rooms they are in.

I wish I was in NY because I bet it would be fun getting together with you. I hope you have a blast! I look forward to hearing about it.

Sorry about all the daycare drama, you are such a wonderful mommy, and I know the right situation will present itself soon. LP is so lucky to have you (as is Mr. SP!!)

YAY FOR GLEE! And YAY for your cookie empire, I am so impressed!! :) Wish I could join you in NYC, July is pretty packed with weddings and vacation, but let us know your dates once you finalize and if I can get up there I would love to meet you!!

Have a wonderful day!

Scottish Twins said...

Can't wait to see the cookies!

Sounds like you have been/will be a busy lady!

Lipstick said...

I am so sorry that daycare situation is stressful. That is a terrible kind of stress, and I hope it resolves for you soon.

So weird about Rude Friend and I can't wait to see the cookies!

OceanDreams said...

Happy birthday to little prince in advance! Hope you enjoyed Glee and hope the day care situation is resolved, that is not fun! :(

the Preppy Princess said...

Yikes, the daycare situation sounds more-than-stressful, good for you on making a decision about the Little Princes. Methinks you are being generous referring to a certain individual as 'rude friend,' she doesn't sound too fab.

And we are all for the cookie empire Miss princess, go-go-go! We are always happy to taste test. (Heh-heh-heh.)
