…why I was so damn stressed and emotional yesterday. It’s THAT TIME OF THE MONTH. My P.M.S. was on overdrive and that’s the reason I was taking everything to heart. I started feeling better towards the end of the day–around 8pm–when I started making dinner. Yadira, Tommy and the girls got here, Mario got here and Noelia was here, too. Yadira helped me with the enchiladas and we all just talked and had a good time. Everyone else got here around an hour later and we sat down to eat. Everyone loved the enchiladas, thank goodness. I would have died if someone didn’t like them…I’m very sensitive when it comes to my cooking . They passed around my scrapbook–which has a whole 4 pages–and everyone complimented my layouts. I made 3 (2 pages of Eenan’s graduation and 1 of our trip to Disneyworld) yesterday. I hand-made a little graduation cap and rolled-up diploma for one of Eenan’s pages. I covered the cap in fabric and made a little tassel for it and everything. I’m quite proud of it *beams*.
We sat around the table after dinner and shared ghost stories (we may have a ghost…or SOMETHING…in our house–no, really) and I forget how we got into the conversation but Annie told Mary, “That’s why you said she’s a good daughter-in-law”. I turned to her (she was sitting right next to me) and said, “Aww…you did?” And she said yes. I give her a half-hug and say, “I think you’re a good mom-in-law, too”, and then I get a lump in my throat and get all teary eyed. Annie and Yadira then get teary eyed and by then tears are streaming down my face and Mary’s teary eyed too. She hugs me and says, “Yes, she’s like a daughter to me”, which made me cry even more. Annie says, “I think that’s so cute…you don’t see that a lot. Usually the wife and mother hate eachother!” Tommy was sitting at the table too and quietly gets up and says, “I think I need a cigarette”, and excuses himself from the table, which I thought was hilarious because he doesn’t smoke. We all started laughing. He got a litle emotional too .
So yes, I had a very emotional day yesterday LOL. Thanks for your comments Vic, Jessica, Bex, and Diana. I’ll return your comments, soon I hope. I’ve been so caught up with scrapbooking that I haven’t even surfed the net very much lately.
Today was National Scrapbooking Day. I went with Mary, Jorge and Bonnie, Noelia and the boys to Wal-Mart. Noelia and I went straight to the scrapbooking section and just oogled at all the stuff. I found some cute 3-D Blue’s Clues stickers that I’m dying to use for a page on Eenan’s 2nd birthday party. I don’t think I have any of Jaylen’s 1st or Eenan’s 3rd and 4th birthdays since we had that damn harddrive crash and I lost 3 years worth of pictures. I still haven’t gotten over that . I’m hoping I have some on actual film. I have a huge ziploc of film I need to get developed. I wanted to start scrapbooking while everyone was at Isaac’s Confirmation, but they borrowed my camera and have no way of printing out my pictures without it .
Mario *says* we’re going to Jorge’s, though it’s 10 and he still hasn’t called for us to go over, so I’m going to get ready just in case. I’m really tired though.
