Yesterday was a very hectic morning but it didn’t put a damper on my day! It started surprisingly normal. I overslept for the gillionth time. It a trend I don’t seem to have any power to end. I woke up and I immediately panicked. What in God’s name am I going to wear to work?! Since I have been so busy, I was unable to make my weekly trip to the dry cleaners. After digging deep into my closet, I found some hand-me-downs from my OLDER sister. She is too small for them. Yes, I know that is messed up. It should be the other way round. But right now I am pudgy and she is not. (more…)
I am not going to pretend that I am not ever Passive Aggressive. Heck, at certain times in my life, I could probably have passed as a master manipulator. As I grow older though, I have less use for PA activity from myself as well as from others. Having said that, I am beginning to believe that everyone else is just getting the hang of this technique! It is hitting me over the head everywhere I look. (more…)
After I explained how chaotic our life is during the school year yesterday, I thought it would only be fitting to explain how a typical day goes during the summer. Feel free to compare.
We are approaching that time of the year – the end of the school year. For some this brings utter panic. They envision kids running around, screaming, and destroying things. For me, I see utter bliss. I envision freedom from homework and reaping all the positives that come with the absence of homework.
The reason I have begun to love the summer break and dread the school year is because school has become very stressful for our family. This stress threw me for a loop because it is much different from my school experience. I was a pretty good student when I was in school. Everyday, my mom would pick me up. I would come home, have a snack, do my homework, and play for the rest of the night. There was very little drama. That is not the case in our house!
A typical day during the school year involves the following: (more…)
I have two phenomenal boys. The are very different and they are each brilliant in their own way. So different that it sometimes breaks my heart.
On one hand you have the absolutely delightful Jesse. He is a reader and a thinker. He is well-spoken, funny, and so wise beyond his years. He can talk to any adult and pretty much have a real and stimulating conversation. Some people walk away from those conversations and can’t believe they just talked to a young child because it was such a grown-up talk. I sometimes find myself feeling smarter after talking to Jesse. His empathy is off the charts and he truly is a sweet heart. I know that he will make the best husband one day. I am sure of it. Jesse is smart, witty, and inventive. His head is so full of ideas that his words shoot out so fast, I can’t keep up! He is a true joy to have as a son. (more…)
Long story short, I have been having a lot of thyroid issues for the last few years. Heck, it probably has been happening for many years but it has only been in the last few years that I have really tried to get to the bottom of my “issue”. In my efforts to find out what I can do to help my situation, I began seeing a new doctor. This doctor put me on a very restrictive diet. Hence, my whining about food. (more…)
Let me preface this by saying I had an incredible Mother’s Day. I have a phenomenal husband and he took very good care of me. Having said that, it got me thinking about how different my experience may be compared to others.
