Part of the Mommy-Curse

Being a mother is wonderful. There's just one aspect that has really got me down this morning ... At 6:40 a.m., I'm awake. I am obviously cursed to wake up early, no matter how late I was up the night before - 2:00 a.m. I think it's due to all those late-night feedings, early-rising children, and there's always the factor of getting them up for school. And I guess the fact that I was a teacher for numerous years is also a factor ... having to be at work at 7:00 a.m. was one of the hardest parts of my career. I am not a morning person! But, what happens when a night owl still has to wake up early in the morning? I think that equals a zombie or a person who takes 15-minute naps on the couch at 4:00 in the afternoon.

Despite all that, the sleepover was fun! I do have some pics and all the other girls are asleep, so I guess they have no say-so on whether I post them or not. That Mommy-curse obviously hasn't affected them.

One thing I realized last night is that women like to talk about how fat they are, how they need plastic surgery for certain areas of their body, laugh a lot about men, how stupid they were in high school, eat a lot of junk (hence the talking about how fat they are), talk about their kids, and did I mention, eat a lot of junk?

I have one thing to say to these girls ... I just love you all! What's funny is we're all so different and come from different backgrounds and walks of life, yet we are great friends and accept each other for who we are. God has truly put us together. Love you ta-tas!

Speaking of zombies ...
Does anything say sleepover more than Biore' strips?
Did I mention eating?

Another thing I noticed last night: Jennifer Grey's abs in Dirty Dancing ... I am now devoted to watching this movie daily to motivate myself to work out.

Ooh, sneaky, post the pics while they're still sleeping. Good plan!

I am SUCH a night owl. I didn't go to bed until after 2 last night as well. And then I have no choice but to get up when Savannah starts hollering at 7:00. Ughhh.

Boy, you sure do have some cute friends!!! Anyway, don't worry too much about Jennifer Grey's abs cause you have her beat in the legs category. Remember, you can only have one talent at a time! Thanks for the fun time.

Looks like you have some terrific friends.

Do you really call them ta-ta's?

Crack me up!

You all look RAVISHING!

Believe it or not, we kinda nicknamed ourselves this because every time we get together, even in our Bible studies, conversation always goes back to the boobies and our issues with them.
