bulleted

My brain hurts today from all the things. Kiddo has gotten three green marks in a row. Hollah! I think I’ll go have lunch with her at school tomorrow. And then get my oil changed. And then workout. And I’d like to nap. Meeting potential new babysitter next week. Holiday weekend. No plans. Lunch with a friend today was super nice. I wanna ride motorcycle … Continue reading bulleted

next stop, juvie hall

Kiddo was/is having some adjustment issues at school. To put it bluntly, she’s punching kids. Yes, punching. She’s gotten in trouble two days in a row for channeling Rocky Balboa. Fabulous. For the record and in my kid’s defense, she has attended day care from 8 weeks to 5 years old, and we’ve never had this issue. I’m shocked I tell you. Each day the … Continue reading next stop, juvie hall

i should be sleeping

Its after midnight and I should be sleeping. But its a full blue moon and my brain is whirling. Today was busy and somewhat annoying but it ended better than it began I guess. I started off weepy and weird and missing a friend and worrying about some very serious family health issues. I’m still all of those things but I don’t have control over … Continue reading i should be sleeping

Kindergarten: And So It Begins

Ok I’m back y’all. And if you aren’t my parents and don’t want to read about my kid’s kindergarten adventures, move right along now. Here are the highlights… The most excited kid I have ever seen busted into our bedroom at 6:00 am all dressed, with backpack on. Ready to go! As spazzy as if it were Christmas morning. She’ll get over that pretty quickly … Continue reading Kindergarten: And So It Begins

various thoughts at 3 am

Emotional rollercoaster today. It’s not something I can explain here. Its just…all the things. Bleh. Life is weird. As mentioned in the title, it’s an ungodly hour and momma is up pacing, nervous as a cat. #1stdayofkindgergarten Last day of daycare today for kiddo. Teary pickup. Last long commute home with her. Not so teary, for me anyway as kiddo was in a mood. Probably … Continue reading various thoughts at 3 am

the weekend and wheels

As briefly mentioned in a prior post, The Accountant and I had scheduled an all weekend babysitter for kiddo and a weekend getaway for ourselves. My throat issues mysteriously disappeared shortly after I complained about them and off we went. I could so live the rest of my life in a nice hotel. We were within walking distance of everything we wanted, and shuttle distance … Continue reading the weekend and wheels

quick rant

Really? The county school system just left us a message letting us know about the PreK program that we could enroll kiddo in if we wanted to hold off on kindergarten another year. Hello, it is two days before and you are going to tell me about this NOW? No way. Kiddo is primed and excited and I’m not holding her out a year but … Continue reading quick rant

kindergarten jitters of the mommy kind

Its gonna be a weird week I think. Kiddo starts kindergarten and momma’s nervous. Kiddo’s been commuting 45 min to an hour every day with me for five years to the daycare at my work and as of this week I’ll be making the commute alone. No Disney princess movies blasting in my ear, no handing bags of cheddar goldfish back and forth, no spilled … Continue reading kindergarten jitters of the mommy kind

funny and serious

I was reading something the other day that stuck in my brain and made me want to “write it out”. What’s that saying about never letting anyone determine your self worth? Something like that. I make mistakes. Sometimes the same ones repeatedly. And there are times that I feel like I have imparted grace to others in multiple instances but don’t get that same consideration … Continue reading funny and serious

My workouts haven’t happened in about a week. Remedied that tonight with a 5K run/walk. I didn’t eat well today and kind of lost energy and heart about midway through. Meh. Hot, humid, and slow, but done. I got a direct message from our county library (or at least the social media person) that kind of made my day…”Just wanted to let you know I … Continue reading snippets

never say never

Sometimes you do things that you never thought you would. I survived the two day basic rider class and passed. I’m now officially legal to drive a bike on the highway! Not that I’ll be doing that right away. I need to practice a LOT in our neighborhood and on backroads before I’ll feel anywhere near confident enough to get out there with real traffic. … Continue reading never say never

weirdo beardo feardo

Its late. I just woke up feeling a bit panicky. That hasn’t happened in a couple of weeks. Nothing I can’t handle, just, feelings. The phrase “fake it till ya make it” popped into my head. True words. Watched a few clips from Amelie because I’m weird like that and there’s something soothing to me about listening to someone speak French regardless of what they’re … Continue reading weirdo beardo feardo
