What I need to plan is a playdate . . .
fOr mE !
Yes. . . me !
Not for the girls.
For mE !
Ok, seriously. I know most of you moms out there can relate with me on this one. Almost everything we (I) do revolves around my girls (you not so much my girls, but your own). Or my husband. Or somebody else. But never me. Just me. Little ol' me. NOpe. NevEr. And really I don't mind. I'm used to taking the backseat in my own life. My girls are my world! and they are my #1 priority. Hubby's a very close 2nd. Nobody really makes me volunteer so I can be even closer to my girls & spend even more time with them. And there is no law out there that says that I have to actually spend quality time with my girls, but I do. Because I love them. And I love doing things with them. And I choose to do those things!
But then there comes a time when you think to yourself;
the girls are having fun.
Good job Momma!
Hubs is having fun ( I think ) actually,I kNoW he is (wink, wink)
Good job Wifey!
are you having fun?
Yes, it's fun being a mom (except for the cooking & cleaning part).
It's fun being a wife (except for the cooking & cleaning part).
But am I having fun being a wOmAn... just a plain and simple woman?
Not with my kids. Not with my hubs. Just me?
aNswEr No. not really!
because I'm not sure I really have a life outside of being a 'mom' or a 'wife', especially now that I stay home and don't see adults during the day, and I'm sure lots and lots of you out there in blogland are in the very same boat as I am. Well guess what honeys?
I abandon ship! Yes, let me off right now!
For once, I will take myself into consideration. I won't get all crazy & stuff, like going to a strip club or out bar hopping... naaah! I'll leave that to the teenagers & college kids. That stuff doesn't rock my boat anymore. I'm not exactly sure what I'm planning yet, but it'll probably be something along the lines of a gIrL's nIghT In or something. I'm not sure of all the details yet, but it will involve lots of girlfriends, lots of alcohol =D, lots of laughing & talking & lots of fun. ...
For those of you with any experience in this, all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. You know, like "how do you make jello shots?" or "do you know any cool drinking games?" or any other type of games for adults? I heard of the Jenga Truth or Dare, but haven't tried it. Has anybody? Or give me all you got, please!!! I could sure use a fun night with friends . . . and I can definitely use all the help I can get!
*** edited to add : Maybe you're not into the whole getting together with your friends and drinking kind of thing (why, oh why wouldn't you be??? j/k) so if you're not, what I'm basically trying to ask is everybody is What do you do for fun? I just want ideas of what I can do with friends. Like hosting bi-weekly or monthly adult get-togethers to relax and have fun! Please, give me all your ideas. Ask your friends, your friends' friends, and then their friends and so on. thank YOu!
