All Night Long

My kids had it good - compared to the others who went to the movie with them last night. They got back to the house sometime between 3:00 and 3:30 this morning. I didn't actually hear them come in, but I heard some water running in the bathroom somewhere in that time period. About then it started raining so I had to get up and close some windows. I didn't see anyone then.

When I got up this morning, I heard laughing coming from the basement. A couple of Cory's friends stayed over, and they were going to crash here. But they never went to sleep! Then Alex's mom came and picked them up about 7am because Jordan had to work at 8:30. Alex had to work at noon, and Vanessa had to work at 10:00 - and Tim had to work all day like normal. Cory didn't have anything planned for the day, and Beth took the day off work because she knew they were going to be out late. So Beth was still in bed, and Cory finally went to bed when his friends left, and they both slept for hours. I have a feeling everyone else is really going to crash once they finish work for the day.

When's the last time you PARTAED all night? Just thinking about it makes me tired - I know I'm too old for that stuff!


  1. I loved those teenage years. By the time my sons were teenagers I was a single mom and I encouraged the boys to have friends over on a weekend and watch movies and have snacks because at least I knew where they were. I would often come home from work at 1am and find bodies strewn over the floor and still there when I got up at 7am to go to my other job but they all were good kids, no drugs just a bit messy and when I saw some of my sons friends at a wedding recently I got lots of hugs from their friends. They have all grown up to be decent young men.

  2. Ugh, all night? Wow. Although I do remember back to when I could get away with that kind of thing too. :)

    Hey, did you get my e-mail about winning my Diane Birch CD giveaway?

  3. Makes me feel tired just thinking about an all night party. I went to one which made me ill for about three days afterwards! I was only about 18 and should have been able to take the pace!

    Good idea to take the next day off work though!
