Grandma got to babysit!

This weekend the kids went to see 2012 so I was home babysitting... it was lots of fun and Deja and I had a great time watching our SciFi movie with the little guy next to us. (unfortunately the heavy rains caused our Dish network to go out several times during the best parts of the movie!)

Now I really wanted to watch 2012 this weekend myself, but hubby was working and so my son and his girlfriend took a desperately needed date night and got some time to themselves to act like...well teenagers. (since in effect they still ARE teenagers at 15 and 16 years old!) Being a parent is hard enough, being a teen parent is even harder.

I managed to get some time in to several craft fairs earlier in the day and succeeded in getting the cats drunk on catnip filled goodies, as Stubby plainly shows in the photo above. For those wondering, Stubby's tail is not cropped, he is an American Bobtail from what I have been told. The kitchen floor was very messy, I was all out of Swiffer wetjet liquid and sweepers. Oh well-mopping floors is not something I like to do, so I was willing to let it go this weekend :) And with all the spilled catnip, it probably was a good thing anyways.

I made the kids promise not to tell me about 2012. I didn't want to spoil the surprise. They came home around midnight and were clearly pumped up from the movie...and they began to tell me all guessed it! I will still see the movie, however maybe now I can wait until it comes out on video if hubby and I can't make it to the movies this weekend.

Work has been super busy, and today was a classic Monday. But we all made it through the day even though it was very exhausting. Not to mention that my darn car didn't start at lunchtime since my alternator had died. It just wasn't my day! This will be my fourth stupid alternator with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE from AutoZone. They are insistent that it is something in my car that is causing the alternators to go bad, but we took it to the dealership and they looked at it, put it on their diagnostic machine and said it was the alternator. So tomorrow I gear up for another fight with them as they try to get out of replacing it for the fifth time in a little over a year. Wish me luck!

I may not get the chance to blog again until the weekend. But wishing you all a great week!
