Top Ten Reasons I Am Excited to Stay Home With My Family This Coming Weekend

If you read very many blogs written by women, you'll know that all the cool kids have packed up their little black dresses, kissed their spouses and kiddos goodbye and headed off to Chicago today for BlogHer '09.

I've never gone, but best I can tell, it's like the world's coolest, geekiest, three-day-long slumber party. With booze.

Of course, that's not something you can do with a nine-month-old nursing baby. Oh, but wait, Amalah and Ezra and Amalah's boobs are there. Well, shit.

Someday, after we win the Lottery (I've got high hopes for Saturday's Powerball) I'd love to go to BlogHer, but in the meantime, I'd love to be one of fifteen non-BlogHer-attending bloggers to win $100 for telling you why I'm happy to be staying home this weekend instead.

The winners will be the bloggers who have the most comments on their Top Ten Reasons post, so help me out here, folks!

Top Ten Reasons I Am Excited to Stay Home With My Family This Coming Weekend

  1. I could win $100 from - and I'll have all that free time to check out their website and learn more about how they're going to help me get my shit together.
  2. Shrike has five days off, which we get all get to spend together!
  3. CapitalCity PrideFest is Saturday. I've been every year since we've moved to BlueState, and this time we get to take Peeper!
  4. Even with a night-owl baby, I'd probably get more sleep at home.
  5. We finally have groceries in the house!
  6. We're planning to go out to dinner with our new friends - the ones we picked up in the grocery store a few weeks ago.
  7. It would be a shame to make all those other Mommy Bloggers feel bad because my kid is so much cuter than theirs.
  8. Saves me the humiliation of acting like / sounding like / proving myself to be a complete ass in front of my blog heroes.
  9. I just finished flying / traveling alone with Peeper. I am not up to doing it again so soon.
  10. Did I mention that I could win $100 if enough of you leave comments on this post?

  2. Hey wait. You have groceries at your house? No fair!

  3. If you win do I get a cut? Hey, these comments don't have to all be from different people, do they?

  4. Well, I suspect they ought to be from more than one person! I think they might notice that :-)

  5. Ehhhh, that's just picky of them.

    And ooooo, these Limited Edition Fudge Sundae Creme Oreos of which you twit, I'm assuming that these are related to that "groceries in the house" thing. Mmmmmm...
