Step Up

January 10th 2007 / 2 minutes to read

Yesterday was my son’s fifth birthday. Thanks to a suggestion from my Heather, I took him bowling for the first time. He had a blast! We went with my sister and her fiance and it was fun for all of us. My sister surprisingly rocked it with strike after strike. My elbow is seriously hurting today so that’s a bit of a downfall.

His father didn’t send a gift, card, e-card, or phone call. I’m not surprised. He is a bad person. Pathetic person. Worthless person. I can’t deal with it anymore and I refuse to put my son through it anymore. His father does not deserve to even be in my son’s presence. My son who is amazing, intelligent, technologically inclined (I taught him how to switch from the PS2 to the DVD player for his power ranger goodness, and how to open Firefox and browse to his power ranger website!), and a joy to be around. His father is missing all of that because he would rather well… a lot of you know what he does I don’t need to repeat it yet again.

I have to regain control of my life somehow.

Anyway, I am already so very excited about the upcoming season of American Idol. I wonder if anyone can come close to topping my last season’s obsession (which hasn’t stopped!) of Daughtry. I adore Daughtry.

I was so thrilled to see the iPhone was unveiled today! I could never afford one but they look fantastic.

My plans for the rest of the evening is to watch PhotoshopTV and Diggnation on the podlet and attempt to relax. I’m worried about the rain that’s coming tomorrow and Friday because I’m out of my Excedrin. I suppose if it comes down to it I will stop by my sister’s tomorrow to get a couple doses. I normally get a migraine each and every time it rains. Not looking forward to it.

I am so grateful to everyone’s suggestions for the “Cry” playlist. To jump off of that, what are your favorite songs you play for sheer volume and beat?

Some men just don’t deserve to be fathers, let alone have the privelege of carrying that title.

I’m glad your son had fun bowling for the first time. Funny, my kids and I talked about going bowling just the other day. Maybe that’s a sign we should do so, hm?

Love the bowling pics :) And I’m sorry to hear his father is such a bastard. And it’s terrible you get a migraine every-time it rains! I love it when it rains, sitting out on the balcony, watching the sky from under a blanket.

If you all could have just SEEN the leg move in person!! He would stop, raise his leg, (a’la his Idol) then chuck the bowling ball down the lane with a massive THUD! 
And yes.. I rocked it!

He tells us he “grows” in his sleep.  Or maybe it is just his Power Ranger abilities :)
