MY MOM IS TAKING THE KIDS ALL NIGHT TONIGHT! HOORAY!
She is in town for two weeks and is taking the kids THIS Friday, NEXT Friday, AANNNDDD my mother-in-law is taking them overnight the Saturday after that so we can go to a party in LA! OMGGGGGGGGGGGG
My mom lives between Mexico, Idaho, and here throughout the year, and I'm pretty sure she feels guilty about living here but not "living" here while I am
losing my shit taking care of two young children, so she offered to give us some time to feed our alcoholism.
Troy and I need a full night off. Let me re-phrase: I need a full night off. Usually we get a couple hours off (don't get me wrong- MUCH appreciated), then consume as much alcohol as humanly possible within said couple hours off, then I am not able to comfortably sleep off my drunkenness because I still have to tend to a newborn every 3-4 hours. Which sucks.
I can't tell you how exciting this is. I mean, the most thrilling thing I've done all week is pee in the guest bathroom. A night without constantly tending to people who aren't myself is just crazy talk. I'm into it. I like it.
On another note, Valentine's Day is coming up. I'm not sure how I feel about this "holiday". My intellectual side (7% of Sofia) tells me, "Stupid. It's just another day where florists and Hallmark make a shit ton of money off of dumb people."
My sensitive, insecure, girl side (93% of Sofia) tells me, "Ok. Here's the deal. If Troy doesn't get you anything
again he is clearly having an affair or hates you or both. Seriously, no chocolates = cry about it"
And as I'm getting older my intellectual side in terms of this issue is winning over. I mean, Troy does a bajillion wonderful things for me and our children. Why would him not getting me flowers indicate that he doesn't care about me? How ridiculous. Doing everything he can to provide a comfortable life of us while working extra hard so I don't have to have a job is definitely the most generous thing anyone has ever done for me. And we get along 99% of the time, and I know that takes a lot of love from him because I'm really annoying a lot. So, that's that.
I was feeling really confident in my newfound maturity of letting Valentine's Day "go" until Landon's 3:00 am feeding last night. Here's what happened:
Troy talking in his sleep: "Hey beautiful. Put that down and come over here."
Ok. Now, I am not upset that he was dreaming about another person. It really doesn't bother me- it's not like I've never dreamt about other guys before. I have. Jake Gyllenhaal mostly but who's counting. And plus, you can't really control what you dream about soooo how could I hold that against him?
The thing that pissed me off was that I knew he wasn't dreaming about me because he addressed sexy dream girl with "Hey beautiful".
Soooo now I really want flowers. Something with a diamond in it wouldn't hurt either. Just sayin'.
Have a great weekend!
