I am going to go Kick Ariel Around A Bit

So I may be crazy,

I am blogging two days in a row... WHAT?  Yes I have had this funny feeling of optimism for the last few days.  I don't know what's gotten into me!  But I like it.

I actually went for a walk/run yesterday afternoon, I blogged, I was productive at work, cooked dinner, kicked the soccer ball with my daughter.  Which may have been my most fun activity.  So the story is I bought my daughter a soccer ball at Old Navy.  It is lavender with purple accents and peace signs.  Very appropriate for a 3 year old.  But here's the kicker (pun intended!)  She named the soccer ball, Ariel!  So I crack myself up asking her if she wants to go outside and kick Ariel around.  It's sweet!

So here is my advice, get a ball, give it an amusing name, and anytime you have a rough day, you can just say.. "I'll be outside kicking Bob around"  And you will get many odd looks, but it is hilarious!

Now go relieve that stress! If you need me I'll be out back giving Ariel a swift kick in the ASS!

Drive Way Happy Hour

So my friends,

After living in my house for 4 years, I have finally become friends with some of our neighbors.  It has been great!  We've exchanged babysitting, and had a BBQ, and a birthday party or two.  But I write today to tell you about maybe the best thing to happen on my street in years!  Drive Way Happy Hour.

Although I can not take credit for the name (way to go Regina!)  It is pure awesome!  We get home from work.  Well the neighbors and my husband get home from work, I come downstairs from my office. And if it's nice we grab the lawn chairs, a drink of choice (it's always beer).  And let the kids play!

It's so great.  I love being a Mom but in reality, I miss that after work happy hour while you de-tox from work, but get a little drink on!  We hardly discuss, work, but I tell you what it is the best happy hour in town!  I encourage all of you to start this in your own hoods!
