I had some friends. My daughter had friends within this group of friends. I haven't talked to these people since last June other than one minor run in. Now all of a sudden my daughter wants to hang out with the daughter of one of these people. I don't know what to do.  I don't want my daughter around the mom much because she is kind of degrading about looks and having the best of everything (not because I don't trust her or feel she would harm my daughter, I happen to know she adores my child) I doubt the mom wants her daughter around me....(probably feels the same about me, we parent very different but I love her daughter and she knows it) not sure. 
There is a neutral location because I still think the little's girls dad is pretty good.  I know his kids always come first.

How do I make my desires known that they can only hang out if they are with me or the dad of the little girl? I have told my daughter my wishes and I really tried to discourage her from rekindling any kind of relationship. Do I let her go to the mom's house? (I know she is safe I just don't know what she will say about me to my kid, I would never say anything about her to her daughter.)

Should I just say NO?
A guy at work says this is when you have to step up and parent and not try to be your childs friend and make a decision.

I am looking for help, any recommendations.  Luckily I have another week to worry about it because of schedule conflicts but I know it is going to come up again.

I want to blog but what to say? Copy Laura Belle?

I guess I could do a Ten things Thursday.....ok why not.

1- I am sooooo sick of sitting at Girl Scout Cookies booths prostituting ourselves  to sell out the last of our cookies so we will break even and not owe money.  And this people is why I haven't purchased a single box of cookies....I can't stand seeing them in my house.  Crazy huh.  Oh and you should have seen us out on the road at a freakin carwash on Saturday when the wind ripped the sign away from the girls and I had to scream and jump in front of them to keep them from running into the road after it......grrrrr!

2- Aunt Flo or George as I like to call him is here to visit which makes standing outside in the wind even more pleasant.

3- We have tonight off from cookies and I am completly and totally having myself a couple Rum and Diet Dr. Peppers while I watch Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. ( I don't work tomorrow so it is all good)

4- This morning my daughter called me to tell me she forgot her lunch. No biggie I will run home and grab it for her and take it to her.  She does this every once in a while.
Except today I hear this
Kod: "but mom, I left it by the front door on the table by the couch and the dogs might get it!" 
Me: Which lunch bag did you use?
Her: "the pink one"
Me: "oh crap"
(see the pink one is a pull string closure quite easily maneuvered when you have the pointy nose of a dachshund).
So I run home and sure enough the little sh$!s have consumed an eleven year olds entire lunch minus the lettuce of course. Oh they also didn't consume all the Jalapeno Cheetos must not like their food spicy?
I quickly scoop up the remains of the lunch bag and the packaging and the lettuce, telling them what naughty little turds they are (as they wag their tails so excited for the mid day visit from mom). Now I have to go get freaking Micky D's for my kid instead of the yummy chef salad and banana (and Jalepeno Cheetos) she had packed.

I can not wait to get home and see how well their stomach's digested their nutritious lunch *please dear lord let them make it until 3 o'clock ( so I don't have to go home and scrub floors and wash rugs)*

5- I encouraged Laura Belle to fart in public.

6- Today at work I have to write a letter to inform about 20 guys that they were overpaid in August on overtime and they have to send me a check for the amount they were overpaid. NOT FUN!

7- I am totally addicted to my phone...well um ok the game apps I have purposely installed on my phone.  Anyone want to play a game of words w/ friends or my new fav is Draw Free similar to pictionary.  It is so funny to see someone else interpret a word and how they draw it.  My favorite player is my little brother (he isn't a great speller so it is fun to watch him figure it out.) One person had the word Tyra like Tyra Banks and drew a tiara, needless to say I did not guess that one.

5- I have a sore in my nose that I have had for a really really long time that I am finally going to have checked next Tuesday. I hate it because boogies get all stuck in there and make me feel stuffy.....bleck I know TMI! hopefully it isn't anything serious and something they can fix.....fingers crossed!

9- My car is making a weird noise.  I think it is a hose but I am afraid to take it into the shop!!!

10- and for Draz, Holy Snot Balls I did it again made it all the way to ten.  I guess I did have something to say.  Thanks for humoring me and reading.  I hope you all get a chuckle! Hopefully if I don't have to many drinkey poo's tonight I will be back tomorrow for B.Y.O.C.

xoxoxoxoxo Have a great rest of your day!!

1.  How do you feel about college?  If you have kids or siblings - will you encourage or require them to go?  How long did you go and what for? 

I went to College.  I spent 4 years to get a 2 year degree.  I do not work in a field that has anything to do with my degree.  My degree was planned so I could be a stay-at-home-mom and only work part-time.  Well with a divorce under my belt I am now soul provider of my household, so I had to find something that would provide for us.  I would like my daughter to attend college but it is up to her.  I don't regret college even though I still have loans. I think it is a good learning experience.

2.  Pink or purple?  Coke or Pepsi?  Pen or pencil?  Cursive or printing?  Ketchup or mustard?

Can I choose Diet Dr. Pepper? well that is my choice
Pen, but I go through pencil phases.
Oh so very much MUSTARD!

3.  If you could live in any generation - which one would it be?

I like the really olden days.  Petticoats and big poofy dresses.  Only if I could be a lady though.  I wouldn't want to live as a commoner.

4.  What do you sleep in?

A BIG t-shirt and panties.

5.  Repeat question - summarize your week!

It was a good week.  Finally getting over this stupid sinus infection.  Nearing the end of girl scout cookie time! YEAH! I am sooooo sick of GS Cookies.  If you need any let me know I still have 26 boxes in my car.
