My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Remember when...

Saturday was just the best day of the whole week? Cartoons in the morning and a whole day of just goofing off stretching out before you? I do...

The girls still have it pretty good -- Saturday morning cartoons are not as magical for them as they once were for me. They have cartoons to watch 24/7 now. Progress? Maybe. But I'm a nostalgia girl. I miss the magic.

Eldest has a birthday party to go to today, so she is pretty excited about that. The new BP fad is having your party at a local hotel with a pool. All the kids get to swim, and moms don't have to bust ass cleaning the house just so a bunch of 9 year olds can show up and destroy it. Seems like a win win situation, I suppose.

Anyhoo, that's my day today. Eldest to party, grocery run, housework, all of the usual stuff. I am presently working on reorganizing the office -- I have a veritable TON of shredding to do. Gathering up documents in preparation for doing our taxes, blech.... hate that. The sun is going to shine, though. And that is definitely a good thing.

And I guess this is good to know...
Your EQ is

50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!
51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.
71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.
91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.
111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.
150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

Well, better to land on your butt than on your face, Right? Happy Saturday!
