A whole week has passed.....

Since I last wrote. I am currently at work. Shortly after 3:am. This has been the most time I have had to myself since my mother descended upon my home last Sunday night. Now, don't get me wrong. I love my mother. I appreciate her. She is a very hard worker, very organized......much like a drill Sargent. Things around my house have really gotten into shape. She has somehow convinced my first ex-husband to come and finish up the flooring that he started last fall and abandoned when he met a new girlfriend. She also pushed the town into getting them to drop off the town truck for us to load up the garbage in the garage (I had been waiting for them for a few weeks). She has gotten more laundry done in a week than I can manage in a month. Unfortunately, I have no place to actually put all that clean, folded laundry.

She will be here for another week or so. I am heading out of town on Tuesday morning for a rendez-vous with a dear friend of mine......well, who am I trying to kid..... I am meeting up with an old boyfriend, who has become a new boyfriend again. Anyway, by the time I return home next Friday night, she should have the kids whipped into shape, the house completely renovated, and the dog should be doing back flips for perogies.

Oh, sister. Thought you could SNEAK that old boyfriend new again thing in without getting DEMANDS that you say more? Nope. Afraid not. Spill it.

When I started up with an old boyfriend who became a new boyfriend I married him, that was 9 wonderful years ago....

OTJ - I was engaged to this man after my divorce from my first husband, since he is an American and 8yrs younger than me, things didn't work out then. Now, things are working out and he is planning to move here. All of this happened AFTER my last relationship went sour.

Digi - yep, that is what I am planning!!!!

Creative Dad - ever heard of the Sopranos?? Once you get into this family, you never get out!!!! Actually, my first husband and I have come a long way to being able to be friends.....he started doing the work for me this summer and just didn't finish.....but he is Ukranian and my mother makes a mean perogie.
