I am off to the land of the family for a few days. I have a few remaining vacation days to use before the end of the month so I am off to visit Mom, brother , sister in law and most adorable nephew. I am excited about visiting all except mom has been a bit pouty and melodramatic lately... She first got pouty when I had made plans with an old friend from high school and she had made plans for US without bothering to ask me for us to have dinner with her friends the same night.. I wouldnt have minded having dinner with her friends they are very cool but it would be nice to ask before she plans my vacation out. As it turns out my friend is only in town the one night so I am having dinner with my friend and I am not sure what she is doing.. She should be excited as she gets me all to herself as hubby is off on a 2 week business trip so its not even like she has to share my attentions with somebody else.. plus she s been acting really funny.. I want to spend as much time with my brother and sister in law and my nephew and my mom keeps finding every excuse for us not too... not sure what all of that is about ... id like to think that its the my duahgter is married and things have all changed part of life but who knows.. oh and my sister in law informed me that it is my role in the family to have a baby girl as my mom feels its timne for somebody to have a baby girl ! Now that one maybe I can handle.. there were all these books in the bookstore about choosing the sex of your baby!
