lol, gotta love that. I don't blame you on the bar thing. When Jeff quite drinking 4 years ago we vowed not to set foot in a bar again. It's nothing but a place of desperation and filth. We went to a bar together and a guy put his arm around me. I threatened to break it off and stick it in a special place if he ever touched me again. lol. I don't drink and I don't like drinking. My grandfather was an alchoholic. It's such a pathetic way of life. My in-laws for instance can't do anything without drinking. It's like there is no fun in the world without alchohol. I prefer not to smoke and drink. Why screw up healthy lungs and livers?

And whats with the whole 21 as a right of passage? Is it really okay to promote a binge drinking problem? I was at WORK on my 21st.

My dad was an alcoholic so I know what you mean. That's what killed him. Oh, my cousin, same one, had a party for her daughter when she turned 21 and hired a stripper !!

My cousin was a terrible mother. She never wanted to ask her kids about their grades in school. She thought it was none of her business.

Speaking of terrible mothers my sis in law is pregnant. She is such an idiot. I hope they don't expect me to hoot and holler with them about this because I won't. I am an honest person and I won't pretend to be happy about something I am not happy about. I won't be rude of course but all they are getting from me is uh huh on all of it. I can always blame it on my anxiety pills those sedate me enough.

I got my new furniture though (YAY) and got my new computer paid off. I also got to rent a rug doctor and clean my carpets. It's really gross how much dirt those things pull out. I also got everything I need to get my new 19 together except an arm extension :/

We just got back from Home Depot after buying a toilet. It should be installed Friday at the earliest.

YAY for new potties. BTW so proud of you for being a DIY woman! That is awesome. I'll post some pics of the new living room soon. I have to get my new t.v. stand and desk this weekend. Tee hee. I love living room makeovers.
