I’ve had a lot of those lately.

  • Howard being so damn tired when he gets home that he barely finishes dinner. Needless to say he has spent ZERO time with the girls and I. Selfish as it sounds, I’d really like to be able to at least pee in peace when their other parent is around, lol.
  • Being a woman…read between the lines on that one
  • Summer…I am SOOOOOOO ready for cool weather!
  • Being turned down for financial assistance for school. The classes I want to take aren’t covered by financial assistance. They recommended that I get a personal loan. Yeah, have you seen my credit?
  • Letting myself get all worked up, upset and bothered by things that are completely out of my control {think previous entries and family that for some reason finds me insignificant}
  • Not being able to sleep. 3 ‘sleeps’ and counting.

I need a vacation, or a tranquelizer, or SOMETHING to chill me out. It’s bad when your own thoughts annoy you.

2nd grade

Last night it hit me like a ton of bricks that Mackenzie was starting 2nd grade. I had a little OCD, some anxiety and I cried. {the first of many within 24 hours, trust me}

I was concerned how our new schedule would affect Maddie, but she woke up a quarter ’til 6! So, we took our time getting ready and headed to school. Maddie and I walked Kenzie in. She was so ‘into it’. She walked straight to her locker and hung her stuff up. Then she realized that her crayons and colored pencils were HERS and no one elses and she looked up and said, BYE MOM. I had to ask her twice to come give Maddie and I a kiss.

The day started with me being super mom. I got up at 5am, got Howard off to work {yes he had to work a few hours} and got myself ready and finished packing us up. Then after I loaded the car, hubby came home, we woke the children up and off we went.

The drive wasn’t too terrible. Maddie was pissed, no doubt because she HATES her car seat like I hate Ben Stein. Traffic wasn’t pretty either. We finally made it to Danielle’s.
