Tales from my mind...RANDOM
The past 7 days have been a blur. I'm on my couch typing on a laptop with squinty eyes,
a hot coffee (Yes, I know it is 11:30pm) a warm neck roll and I've just taken (3) of these babies.....I know. IT MUST BE BAD you are thinking. You would be right.
Parent information night @ School...NEED I SAY MORE? I have a 3rd grader.
Not an adorable 1st or 2nd grader. A 3rd grader and MAN, does he have some homework.
This is year that I begin to realize that he will surpass me in intelligence (it was bound to happen sometime, I have been preparing)! So, I would like to issue this to my son. Of course, it has NO bearing because I am not his teacher but still...it makes me feel like I care a little bit more.
Hockey - Which rink? What time? Which kid? I'm taking who with me? Why? Did he eat? When will his mom be here? Does he have his gear? Oh you have GOT to be kidding me? Now, I am here with MY 5 year old who totally wigs out and DOES NOT want to skate in the slightest. HOCKEY GEAR takes like 25 minutes to get off and on...and no wonder...it is 8:15pm and this kid is 5 and he has been at school and a parent information night today..... I am beginning to see why us hockey moms get such a bad rap. So, to this child I would like to issue this....take your time buddy, NO RUSH on the hockey thing if you ask me!!!
The last thing on my plate this week....Hubs new job. Well sorta. After he worked for the same company for 19 years he left a couple of years ago. Now, he has headed back. Would you like to know when his 1st day was? Yep. Monday. So, I am sooo happy for him but me, me on the inside (and honestly on the out as well) I just wasn't prepared. We had the last 3 years of flexible scheduling (meaning that I could get a massage mid day and not have to work around kids or anything) Ahhhh...BLISS....and then BOOM..it hit me...He now goes to the office Mon-Fri and I am SOLO...SOLO...SOLO and I am fading FAST! So to my hubs I would like to give:
Lastly...to me, to me I would like to say...BUCK UP Sold-JA!!
You have some long days ahead and this is just what the doctor ordered:
(Yes, it is REAL and yes, the little one is a NORMAL size mug)
