Doesn't feel like Friday to me

Maybe that is because the kids were off on Monday this week for MLK's birthday so it doesn't seem like they were in school long enough this week for it to be Friday??? I dunno. But it doesn't feel like Friday to me.

I have a dreaded family function to attend tonight. My mother's eldest brother, my godfather, is coming to visit for a long weekend so I have to go meet Mom, her hubby, my uncle, Mom's sister, her hubby, and my sister for dinner tonight minus children. Although every function involving Mom's family is always minus children even though I am the only one who has children that are not adults. So they might as well just give me a "Your Kids Are Not Allowed" Note or something. I don't get along very well with these two siblings of my mother's. We have VERY different parenting ideas which always get us into a bit of a tiff when they offer up advice on how I should be dealing with Bam-Bam's 'problem' which for them means the fact that he has Autism. Drives me insane. There is also the fact that they say I am soooooo much like my father, who they by the way admittingly do not like and have not even before my parents divorced years ago so what does that say about our little lack of a relationship??? So I am flying solo tonight there since hubby had plans to go out with the group from work for drinks tonight. I will be there suffering alone with little support other than my single, childless sister's attempt at defending me and my decisions regarding Bam-Bam. Woo Hoo. And the bad thing is being pregnant I can't even have a drink or two to help ease the mood and get through it! :) Wish me luck.... I am gonna need it.

The boys will be at a picnic and parkdate with my sister tomorrow while I get some work done that I have been putting off. Then sometime this weekend I have to finish my preparations for Bam-Bam's IEP meeting for Monday morning. This is always fun. Other than that, those are our current plans for this weekend. Hope you enjoy yours!!! :)
