Oh what a night

Yes that is my hubby and myself right before we headed off to the convention center for the World's Largest Disco last night. Not to shabby eh?

Here is Megan, (my brother in law's girlfriend) and myself posiong for a photo with Disco Duck. Man that person in there had to be sweating buckets. Gets pretty hot out there on that dance floor. I know that I had to leave a time or two just to get some air. I hate it when people begin to crowd you like that.

Aww ain't they sweet. Dave and Megan here.

And come on now it just wouldn't be a party without the Village People.

I had such a blast at the party. Dancing with Cookie Monster, Disco Duck, a Drag Queen and random strangers. Today my body is killing me though. I need to find better shoes for thing. I really do. Thank and the fact I got no sleep at all last night. We had gotten a real good deal at a hotel for the night, So after the disco and a few drinks at the bar afterwards. We get up to our room. I took a nice hot bath to soothemy aching feet and wash away the can of hairspray and all that makeup I had on. I come out to find Ed asleep already so I started reading my book. I read for about half an hour when from out in the hall there arose such a clatter. The people in the room next to us finally came in. Woke Ed up in the process. Drunk as can be and they partied for about an hour or so before some left around 5 am. Then came the unmistakable sounds of people doing the nasty. We heard there headboard knocking against the wall, the moans the grunts, the screams. So by now I was overtired, cranky and a tad bit giddy, so figuring that if we can hear then they can most certainly hear us. I bang on the wall and call out, "way to hit that dude" and Ed and I start giggling madly. I think they got the point since it got real quiet after that.

Get Down

Boogie oogie oogie. Tonight I will be disco dancing the night away at the World's Largest Disco. The party of the year here in the B-lo. All benefits are going to Camp Special Days and Good Times. This year the surprise guest are the Brady boys and Cindy too. It is such a blast I so cannot wait.

Their site boasts:

Be part of the largest Retro party in the world as seen on VH-1's "Where are they Now?", "CBS this Morning", The Travel Channel's "Secrets" & the front page of "The Wall Street Journal"
Voted "The Greatest Event on Earth" by
Listed as one of the top 50 events in the U.S. in the book "America Bizzaro"

We also got a hotel room this year for after, right down the street from the party, and are going to hit the strip dresses in our disco duds afterwards. Got to love NY with drinking until 4 am.

I think I am getting a cold.

Ugh I hate this feeling. The stuffy head, itchy throat, I coughed up something most foul a few minutes ago. I so do not need nor want to be sick right now. Black Friday is around the corner and I need to be well to go out that morning. Yes I am one of those crazy people. But the deals that I have gotten in the past are just too good to pass up.

Getting there..look

New floor, new paint, new couch. Same old kids lol.

Still searching for the perfect curtains, area rug, pictures, and throw pillows though. It is so great to finally be doing something to the inside of my home for a change. I really love how it is turning out, it is nice to walk into a room and not feel totally disgusted by the 20+ year old carpet and couch.

I'm a dirty old lady!

Shame shame shame on me for thinking such naughty thoughts about a sweet young lad of 21. (Hmm then again Ashton is 16 years younger than Demi and there is only 11 between me and Zac Effron). Yes I admit it I love Zac Effron. He is such a cutie pie. Thank you to my daughter for introducing me to his yumminess. I took the girls to see High School Musical 3 on the Veterans Day. There was this one scene where an angry Troy danced throughout the halls of the school alone at night and all I could think of was a young Kevin Bacon in Footloose.
This scene remember it?

Mmmmm.. I love me some Bacon too.

I so cannot wait until 2010 when the new version of Footloose is released and of course Zacy Poo, as I like to call him to tease my girls will be staring as Ren in it. Madeline loves Footloose as it is so tihs will be a special treat for her a movie she loves staring a boy she loves. Yeah Madeline will be happy and mommy will just have to take her to see this movie too. Sigh oh well. A mom has to do what a mom has to do.

Drawing Illusion

I was sent this on my Facebook account and just felt the need to share it. Brilliant it is I say, good for a few laughs. And admit it you were thinking the exact same things I was. (wink wink)

Mom gets a night out!

Wow it has been awhile since I said that. I am a tad nervous though since I really don't know any of these women. I joined a local mom's group and tonight is a Whine (wine) night. Food, drinks, conservation. One of the moms from Lilly's class told me about it and I am glad she did. I need a break! Especially after this week. But on the bright side what a productive week it has been. Got the carpet ripped out of my house, laid a laminate floor. Threw away our old couch, painted the living room, took off all the wall paper in the hallway. Started to put on the moulding. It will be done later on tonight. Now onto furniture shopping :)

Need I really say more? Been one of those weeks.

They're here....finally

Got the girls school pics in today, I cannot believe my baby is in pre k! Even harder to believe is that my oldest is in 2nd grade already.

The day after

I am so thankful it is all over, I was so sick of the calls the ads basically the whole negative feeling to all the elections going on local, state, federal. It is going to be so nice not to have to see hear all that mess.

I do have to say that I am disappointed, sad angered by one result though. I cannot believe Prop 8 in California passed! I am sick over it I really am. For those that don't know what Prop 8 is it overturned the rights of gays to marry. I don't understand why some people cannot accept homosexuality. Why they can't allow couples that love one another have the same rights as hetrosexual couples do. This only adds to my belief that religion is truely the root of all evils.

A day no one will soon forget

Now I really didn't like either canidate that was running this time around. They both had things I liked and disliked about them, but I really believe that neither one would do our nation real good. It will be very interesting to see how things will go. So I am sitting back crossing my fingers and hoping that everything turns out okay.

Should've stayed in bed

Ever have one of these days? I felt like a zombie all day. Just going through the motions half asleep. Not seeing things that were right infront of my face. I'm glad it is almost over.

I am not going to get that

If I receive one more political phone call I am going to scream! I so cannot wait for this stupid election to be over with already. I swear 9 out of the last 10 calls that I have received have been people telling me who to vote for.

It is over

And finally after a number of years of bitter cold nights we finally had a decent Halloween. No winter coats, hats, or gloves were needed. Costumes were actually seen. I was very disappointed at how many people were not handing out candy this year, yet you seen the entire family out trick or treating. One of the parents should of been home handing stuff out while the other took the kids. This is such a huge pet peeve of mine. It was a pretty slow year year we didn't even go through 2 bags of candy. Good thing we bought candy we actually like to eat ourselves so it won't go to complete waste. ;)
