Asked a friend of mine with two boys and about to have a third baby if they wanted to know the sex in advance - she said with much disappointment that it was going to be a third boy! Agh! Reason number 8,547 to not have a third baby! You know I'd make a third boy. That's just how this donor's sperm seems to meet my eggs.
In attendance at the party was my friend's giant Latino family and only a handful of old dance friends. It bums me out that people make so little effort to get together anymore...and also makes me feel a little bit of a loser that I jump at any invite we get while everyone else seems to have better things to do. But that's the life of a single gal with no family around - my only social interactions come from friends. So the onus is on me to maintain those friendships and not just let them slip away.
I am not so upset about the money thing as you'd think. I'm a little bummed I got my hopes up, but oh well! This problem has a solution thankfully - it's not like this is my fixed income and I have to cut back just to get by. No, I only have to get by until February. I will have to defer one of my property tax payments but this is something I absolutely can do - it's not delinquent until after April 1st. And hopefully Theo will get me an awesome tax refund and I may get a break on health insurance come January. I also want for nothing, have a good comfortable home and a car that runs.
One of my djs during my event was asking how I liked motherhood and I said it was great, and he said, "look at you - two beautiful kids, this great event - you've got a great life." He's right!
