    I LOVE rock band. It's funny because I played in orchestra most of my years growing up. I wasn't great but I did almost make it to state level one year. But I have an awful sense of rhythm. I don't know how I ever learned to play and make it through the songs. LOL
    DH is decent on guitar, sister is really good on guitar and drums. I like to sing. But I can't sing at all. LOL Last time we played Rock Band my sister almost fell off the couch and wet herself laughing at me so hard. I was trying to sing Feel Good by the Gorillaz...OMG that song has some fast parts and I didn't really know the words so I was just making things up and trying to keep the tone right. And i wasn't even drunk.

    I hate that my sister lives five hours away.

    Oh no!!! That's awful! I feel like my DH, I, and most of our friends did most of our heavy drinking/partying in college, and we're all past that for the most part now. It's really nice, because we just go over each other's houses and play Rockband, Mario Kart, the new Mario Bros, watch sports, play silly party games, eat... I wish both of you lived closer, too - I'd totally hang out and invite you all to our lame but fun get togethers

    I confess...my sister AND my dad are going to see Lady Gaga tonight. Sister is a huge fan and dad is too. He has Bad Romance as his ringtone and we are currently calling him Papa gaga because he is so crazy.

    My DAD likes Breaking Benjamin, 30 Seconds to Mars, Offspring, Evanescence, Lady Gaga, Paramour, My Chemical Romance, No Doubt.....and has seen all of them and more in concert.

    DH and I went with my sister and dad over the summer to see Offspring....which we really like. But we didn't care for the concert crowds at all. I feel like I'm too old for that 31 and DH felt the same. Dad at 50-something enjoyed it more than we did. LOL

    My sisters live about 30-45 minutes (plus some with traffic) north of me and I really don't see them as much as I should. I see one more than the other but that's because she is also willing to travel down here and stay the night sometimes or go to dinner. But the other sister never comes down this way. I lived in our last place for 2 years and she came down to see me like 4 times. Of course she always complains that I don't go to see her but I do wayyyyyyy, wayyyyy more often than she comes to see me. We're probably both thinking to ourselves "Well if she would come see me more than I would go see her more" but I DEFINITELY go there WAY more than she comes here.

    Well, I got pregnant for the first time when I was 18. I miscarried my first baby on my 19th birthday, and then got pregnant, had another m/c, then got pregnant again REAL soon after, so I was still sooo young when I had Elmobo that I never got to go through the whole bar scene ever. So....I never got to really party and have a drinking blast of a time with friends before I had kids. So all my friends were young, going to bars, going to parties. I was just....forgotten.

    Awwww Yeah, I can imagine how wildly different it would be if I were in your shoes for sure. For what it's worth I think you are a super wonderful mom and I am always really impressed by women like you who have children early but willingly give up all the things their peers are doing in order to be good parents.

    Though you'd be surprised - part of the reason DH and I have a pretty small social circle is that most of the people our age we know are still huge party/drinking people - I guess for some people it's a phase that never ends

    That is so cool! I'd love to see a lot of those bands.
    I told my mom DH got me Lady Gaga's CD for Christmas and she was asking me what it was like. I almost recommended it to her and then I was like wait, I'm trying to get my MOM into Lady Gaga. I ended up saying "I don't think you'd really like her. She's like dance music" to which she said "Oh like hip hop?" and I just did not have the energy to explain the difference.

    My mom likes some "cool" current music like U2 and Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, etc. but mostly goes with weird new agey stuff or classical or just totally off the wall.

    AW thank you so much. I appreciate it. I did give up a lot, but I got sooooooo much in return. Hopefully now that we got the kids out of the way (that sounded so wrong, I know, and I don't mean it like, "wow, glad we had those dam brat kids", I just mean now that we're done having them) then we can be old and alone together and maybe travel when we're old! I can hope....right?? LOL.

    I confes I was out with my MIL today and she said ,"maybe this baby will be a girl" and I kind of freaked out inside because 1. I'm pregnant, whoa! and 2. I might have a girl! LOL. I can't imagine having a daughter and I think that's one of the reasons I'm not bothered to find out the sex of the baby before birth.

    It didn't sound wrong at all, and it's true. DH and I are old compared to you and your DH, but in our social circle we are the "young" parents... and we've totally talked about traveling when we're old too

    You ARE pregnant! Though I still get kicked occasionally and am like "Woah! Wait... oh yea, baby... holy sh!t" Are you having a hard time imagining a girl because you prefer boys? or because you want a girl so badly?

    Yeah, me too. DH and I go through drinking phases all the time. We'll go for a few months without drinking at all, then for a couple weeks we'll drink alot. lol. We are scrabble CHAMPIONS during our drinking "binges". I call having 2-3 drinks after kids go to bed "binge drinking" hahahaha.

    Uh yeah, my drinking binges will require a baby sitter for the night. We're talking closing the bar and then a house party until 6 or 7 in the morning.

    So naturally, they will be very, VERY few and far between.

    I think it's because we have a boy so I can't imagine having a girl; and I'm such a boy's mom (was a tomboy myself) so I don't know if I'd be a good girl mom....lol.

    Janeen, I used to be the same way! I wasn't someone that could do one or two drinks.


    But since having M, I have no desire to get drunk. Last time I got drunk was a week before my BFP (I was pregnant!).

    Yeah... I dunno how that happened... I am in just as much shock as you.

    And lol at your binge scrabble playing! I'm a big fan of drunken bowling, personally (well not drunken, but 2-3 drinks as well).

    Janeen - I got tired just reading about your parties!!! I'm such an old lady

    DH and I call on my mother for those nights. Well, we usually don't have time to call her. She calls and asks for the girls quite a bit, so we just wait until whenever she calls to do any fun nights. LOL. I think we've only ever closed the bar...twice, but we will tear our house UP wrestling around and playing while we're drunk and stupid. The latest we stay up anymore is around 1-2 a.m. when the kids are at mom's, because I try to get to her house by 9 or 10 am to pick them up.

    Noooooooooooo me either!!! I thought about having one drink on New Years Eve but noooooo way, I know myself...one drink just isn't any fun.

    I confess that when I got pregnant...I went out with a bang. Starting at 9dpo (on a Thursday) I was testing every morning. Every morning that I got a negative, we were at the bar that night and I was CONVINCED that the IUI hadn't worked. I just kept thinking it couldn't seriously be that easy for me...one IUI and I'm pregnant? Yeah right.

    This went on for three nights... Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Sunday was non-existent as I was hungover and sleeping all day. Sunday night I told Jimi I seriously didn't think the IUI had worked. He went and bought some digitals and I woke up to a positive on Monday morning. Woooeeeee, thankfully the baby doesn't get anything from the woman that early on.

    It scares me to know how much I drank while I was pregnant before I knew!

    I was just posting in another thread about when my RE did the insemination...he went to walk out of the room, gave me a high five and said "I'll be hearing from you in two weeks with a positive pregnancy test." Maybe that should have been a sign that it was going to work but all I could think was that he seemed really cocky and overly sure of his skills.
