Eight is Great. Don't be a H8R. Such a dork, but you love me.

8 Things I am looking forward to:

  1. The weekend, and no working on Saturday! Wooo!
  2. April 26 and Zoe's 4th birthday par-taaay at the House of Bounce. The fact that we only invited 9 kids other than the ones that live with us makes it awesomely small. I can handle that!
  3. May 2 for our wild Girls-Only Hawaii-less Luau (how the heck do you spell that word?!) party. True story, M will be leaving for Hawaii that afternoon and his ex-wife will already be there until the following Monday. That means I get custody of all the girls so we are going to have a par-taaaaay. Cranking up the heat, eating hawaiian pizza, and wearing grass skirts. You wish you could be there, I know!
  4. My 30th birthday, I believe a person needs to re-invent themselves (if you are a Gemini like myself, I get to use the plural version. Ha!) every decade. For my 20th I went with becoming a heathen. I need to think about how I'm going to reinvent myself for the next ten years.
  5. My Mom and her new man coming to Alaska to visit and help celebrate my big 3-0.
  6. Camping and fishing and all sorts of fun stuff while they are here in Alaska.
  7. Going to Seattle for the first time in June. Yay for M who has lots of friends who have been getting married since we've met.
  8. Excited about my brother's wedding (Colorado in September). Zoe gets to be the flower girl, we are going to practice throwing flower petals all summer long. :D
8 Things I did yesterday:
  1. Woke up at 5 a.m. to get ready for work.
  2. Went to the court house for the custody hearing.
  3. Waited for the Ex to show up (15 minutes late) , had the Judge ask why we were having a hearing if we both agreed on everything. (Because J didn't turn in the paperwork. Ever).
  4. 15 minutes later, I was awarded full physical and legal custody. YES!!
  5. Went to Village Inn for biscuits and gravy, and tea to calm my stomach.
  6. Drama drama drama, when J didn't want to meet me so I could pick up Zoe. Ugh!
  7. Arrived home at 9 p.m. and got Zoe in the tub.
  8. Read princess stories, and snuggled with my babygirl. All the drama, heartache, upset stomach; completely worth it to have her throw her little arm around my neck and fall asleep nose to nose in her twin bed.

8 Things I wish I could do:

  1. Give a really awesome massage
  2. Cook an amazing meal. Something other than macaroni & cheese, or pizza. ;)
  3. Telekenesis.
  4. Touch my toes without writhing in agony. Someday...
  5. Get a tan. An even tan, not the freckly-speckly mess that I get.
  6. Play my guitar and sing at the same time. And have it sound amazing, not like a cat in heat.
  7. Kick some ass in jujutsu. Instead of spraining my back trying to do a forward roll.
  8. Learn to take amazing photos.
8 Shows I watch:
(I don't have any television channels, but I do rent seasons of stuff on DVD)
((Also, these are in no particular order))
  1. Dexter
  2. Grey's Anatomy
  3. Lost (although (I admit, I lost interest after the second season)
  4. Dead Like Me
  5. Extreme Elimination Challenge
  6. True Blood
  7. South Park
  8. Heroes
