Birthdays, Babysitters, and Brews

March has been quite the social month for us! We kicked off the first sunny spring day we’ve had in weeks with a epic trip to the park with a bunch of Piglet’s friends. It was like the most adorable biker gang ever!

We have had a couple of fun date nights now that we have a couple of regular babysitters. The first was in Portland, going to visit some high school friends of mine. She took us around town to different breweries to sample their brews. We will definitely be going back!

We also had a fun date night with Fliz, playing Cards Against Humanity, and then yesterday we had a working date day, helping her dismantle her deck.

Here’s Match pretending he was ordering me around while I worked. Truth is he worked his booty off too! I am excited for Fliz and her house addition project this spring.

Now that Piglet is in Preschool, I swear we have a birthday party to go to at least once every 2 weeks. Not that I’m complaining, because he loves them! But it does seem to busy up our weekends here lately. We had a birthday party at the local play house in town last weekend, a party today at the bowling and another birthday party this coming weekend.

We also just celebrated my oldest nephews birthday on Tuesday. This was even more special because it marked the first time I was able to see my niece, nephew and brother in 3 months. He finally broke up with his psycho fiancee. Get this readers, ol’ Turkey Penis is in JAIL! I knew she was bad news. My brother and I had a long talk and patched things up. He knew I was concerned for him, and coming from a place of love, he just didn’t want to see it at the time. Very grateful to have him back!

This coming weekend we have another birthday party to go to! Then, on April 8th, GEEKY IS COMING!!! OMG, OMG I’m so excited to have her and her family visit. It has been over a year since I last saw her. I could not be more excited. I just hope we get a break from all this rain so we can have a proper visit.

In the mist of all the excitement, work has been full on crazy pants. We are moving our office, and there’s tons of construction going on in the district. My poor boss seems to be a total stress case, and I for one just cannot wait til it’s summer. We’ll get a break from some of the drama, and more importantly, I’ll be up for that big promotion. Fingers crossed it happens!

Match also interviewed with a potential closer to home apprenticeship. I’ve got fingers, toes, arms, everything crossed that he gets it. His hour long commute is driving us all crazy, and I know he’s miserable. At least he loves the work, but it’d be so nice having him home more!

What’s new in your world, readers? How have you been?
