another day in paradise
Unfortunately my tropical fantasy land has to end soon. Then comes fall and all my plants come in inside. That leads to a whole new kind of fun though, warm clothes look cooler than summer clothes, wineries are more fun in the fall and lots of fun fall things start to happen. Now I have one power hour to clean up and get ready for tonight`s Friday night cocktail hour for neighborhood school moms, although we don`t leave guys out-they`re just not around.
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
