Central NY: Amy's Slumber Party 2018
Life has been TRAVEL-LESS.....I have not been anywhere for some time now. In fact, I think 2018 has been pretty stationary.
Things around the home front have been stressful to be quite honest.
This semester at school has been perhaps one of the most difficult courses I have ever taken, and the only course according to NY state that I must absolutely have to get my requirements in for my licensing.
I am HATING it......the stress of getting to class and assimilating into the whole back to school thing is over...now it is just trying to get the work in. The course is Research Methods. I have no plans EVER to do any research...and based upon my results thus far, its a damn good thing. I SUCK at this.
APA style writing, reading and reviewing 1000 articles, exploring the data, and now writing my own review and proposal. YUCK!!!! I have a LARGE paper due next week, and I am still unsure about what it is I am suppose to write about.
I have started my new job. I have slowly been getting clients off my case load to begin this pilot position and as I move along towards taking the rains, I am realizing this is a whole lot more then I could have expected. Yikes.
I have also been INCREDIBLY tired all the time...and no its not for a lack of sleep. I feel like I am getting to much actually. I just always seem tired. Maybe its hibernation or perhaps total avoidance. Either way....it is causing me to let some of my life responsibilities go to the side. (Housecleaning, getting to the gym...taking care of myself.) As I type right now, I feel my eye lids getting heavy. I just woke up....
Despite all the stress...and all that extra SLEEP....I have managed to get some good times in over the last few weeks...so here goes it.
One day....after having issues with the data base, new requirements from the governing body, and just because.... Stacy, Aimee and I got CHEESECAKE for lunch.
Last Friday was BUNCO. I missed last month, so it was nice to see the girls.
Saturday evening was the long awaited Amy's Slumber Party. We all wore Micky Mouse garb and ran into Mary in the parking lot. We didn't even recognize her with her new hairdoo.
Cocktails began flowing in the parking lot too.
The long line to check into the hotel. While in line we signed up for massages.
Stefanie ran into more friends around the hotel. Up next we hit the several vendors to take in. The girls found more leggings. Later Stefanie won an outfit from this place.
And the winning continues.....Aimee won a bottle of wine.
We had glitter everywhere for days after.
Spin that wheel.......
Everyone is sure HAPPY!!!!!
There is a Amy's slumber party costume contest. These gals were pretty cool, but the umpaloompa's stole the prize. (Sorry I missed a pic.) We didn't win either.
Look at those full bags.
Stefanie had to hug someone while she played...Aimee was instructed to stand on one foot with her finger in her ear....
A little dancing in the ballroom....Only Stefanie was the Dancing Queen!!!
Thank you for no hangover!!!! I got home after Amy's slumber party and went to breakfast with hubby and my mother in law at The Baldwinsville Dinner. YUM.
