Big Weekend for Manic

But first, the important thing: The Tooth, after living inside Diva's mouth for about seven or six years, depending on when it popped into her mouth, no longer resides there! And how ironic that I just mentioned it in yesterday's Daring post! Go ahead, read about the trauma that is a Diva Tooth. I'll wait. You'll see. Pure Trauma.

I was more excited than Diva was when she got off the bus, and it suddenly fell out. You could hear me screaming from down the street. That tooth fairy better bring her a Ben Franklin!

Go Diva.

And in other, equally exciting news, I'm getting me some ME time! Yep, I am kickin' 'em out! All of 'em. And having some very special guests this weekend. You will not believe who is coming to Manic Land! There will be martinis, movies, munchies, music with some doctors pretending to be musicians, and much, much, much more...

Stay tuned for a possible suburban invite!

Hooray for Diva!
My guess is that Swishy is coming!

Hotwire said...

sounds like a great weekend!!

Swishy said...

Hmmmmmm ... who could it be????

amanda said...

Have a good weekend and think of me running after hubby who has a cold - sorry, "flu" - and the kids and the dog......with only one hand working....I'm donating my drink quota to Manic.

Manic Mom said...

I keep thinking of the scene from Elf where Buddy is like, "Santa's coming! Santa's coming!" There's more than one special guest coming though folks!

Yet, of course, Diva is up at 2:48 COMPLAINING OF NOT FEELING WELL!!! Still kicking her out this weekend!!!!

amanda said...

If she's well enouigh to complain she's well enough to bugger off for the weekend....afterall, I'm sure you're not just kicking her out with a sleeping bag and a "please take care of me" sign round her neck!

Do NOT give in to the pangs of mum-guilt

Jules said...

"Santa is coming, Santa is coming!" haha!! Have a great time with your peeps... you deserve some ME time. WOO HOOOOOO! I can't wait to read the drunken posts.

Colorado Writer said...

Oh the tooth trauma!

And yay for ME times.

Melissa said...

Hope you enjoy your weekend off!!

Glad to hear the tooth saga is over. That's got to be a load off your mind.

March to the Sea said...

Manic Mom said...

Girls--you know who you are (read between the lines--anyone who lives in or near the western burbs and wants to hang out Saturday night)...

Frankie's Blue Room (Jules, it does have the word BLUE in it...) around 9 p.m., Naperthrill...

email me at manicmommy@comcast.net for more details... doctors performing as rockers; bloggers performing as groupies... need I say more...

Who's in?

Andrea said...

I SO wish I could be in, especially since ONE of your guests-to-be gave up the ghost through an easy hint. But I'm not goint to call anyone out. :)

How long do you think it would take me to drive from Memphis? Though I think we're hosting a UFC fight 'party' tomorrow night.

Tanya said...

How many more teeth does Diva have? Poor kid, must be torture.

I'll be watching for those YouTube videos and blogs

Drewpy Drew said...

$100.00 for a tooth? Seriously? I'm gonna knock out a few of mine and send them your way.

Eileen said...

Yay! The tooth is out at last. Looking forward to hearing about the weekend.

Jules said...

Melisa is in AZ and I'm hanging w/ the nephews while they're out of town... I can only assume that by "doctors as rockers" you mean George Clooney & Patrick Dempsey.... and I cannot believe I'm going to miss this!

Please post photos ASAP. Can't wait to read all about it!

Manic Mom said...

andrea--hub and i drove the memphis from chicago back in like 94... long way. even longer hungover!

tanya--diva has only lost seven teeth! She and ajers are going to the ortho next month--time to yank some.

drew--duh, toothfairy doesn't really bring hundo's in our house. she got a five spot.

jules--i remember melisa was going away... drat! woulda been fun to hook up with you gals!

Kate said...

So fun! Can I come?

Oh, and fabulous news about Diva's tooth!!

Heather said...

Do ya think the drive from Dallas could be shortened to 3 hrs. if I drive real fast? Hmmmmm.......

Manic Mom said...

Kate and Heather--you both live in Texas--you both have 12 hours--get in your cars now!

Crazymamaof6 said...

whoohoo! congrats on that tooth! hope the tooth fairy didn't forget to get on over and leave her moolah! our tooth fairy seems to lack the memory to take care of business. my chillun's were finally informed in a screaming tirade about the truth last year. while i was over the top ill with mental illness and cancer testing gone bad. it was the low point of my year. so we pretend now that they don't know the truth but IF i forget they understand.

amanda said...

Hey Manic, you'll never guess what just happened - I was over on Kim's blog and Kate (daughter no.1, autistic) said what's that? pointing to your picture ad before I could say anything she said "It's a picture of mummy!"

Hello sister!!

kim said...

Dag, if I were more fun I would hop in the car right now.

Hope fun is happening now.

Manic Mom said...

crazy mama--your kids betta understand!!! Diva did get some cashola--she was thrilled about that tooth. I think all the rest of them are coming out via the dentist and some sleeping med!

Amanda--Kindrid sista!

Kim--get in that car--don't know where ya live, but you got seven hours!!

I am cleaning my house for Swish's visit...

OOPS! Did I just give it away?

Well, someone else is coming too, but I should just stop RAMBLING here...

hint hint hint...
