I can hardly wait...
In just a couple weeks we are going to the mountains. I don't know if I'm going to make it. I need a break. This trip promises to be fun, and it's cool that we will have lots of tax money back, so we can spend a dime here or there to do some fun stuff.

Today we had a "Cupcake Party" for TJ. It was his official gathering for his birthday (although I forgot to have everyone sing 'Happy Birthday'). He said it was cool to go skiing instead of having a party for him, but that he really wanted some friends over and a cake. Done deal. It cost me about three dollars, just enough to make the cupcakes...No, wait, five bucks, I forgot about the little paper cups for them. Best price for a birthday party, EVER. I also had everyone bring cupcakes, so we did an exchange, and now we have a few for later!

Trey's Valentine's Day gifts are gotten and he's good to go now. I got him a foosball table and an air hockey table today. I traded gift certificates for the foosball, and only paid $50 for the hockey table. Now he's got those and a ping-pong table, and a dartboard for his "MAN ROOM" (aka-the garage). When we get a little more money, we can make it more cozy, but for now he's got plenty of fun recreational stuff to do. He's enjoying the ping-pong table already. He seems to relish the fact that he's tons better than everyone else we know, including me. I think it's from the millions of times he watched "Forrest Gump".

Anyway, I guess I'd better go get ready for bed. We have a birthday party to attend tomorrow, and I haven't even thought about what to get her yet. I think I'll take Sunday for a day of rest...if we have time! I hope you're having a great day, and I'll see you soon!

    The Man Room is also also known as The Poutin' Shanty. Mine has a stereo and a futon.

    I am pouting because I wasn't invited to the cupcake party.
