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

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

this is painful, don’t even bother

First a random baby note: Sam can sign “hungry”, “thirsty” and “brush teeth”. It’s quite cute and quite handy. Except that she like to sign “brush teeth” a LOT. I think she’s just in love with the taste of the Elmo toothpaste. Can’t blame her, it is yummy. I’m just going to go ahead and apologize for this post. I just re-read it and visably … Continue reading this is painful, don’t even bother

the highlights

Broken water pipe is fixed. Cost = over $1000 and only $6 were for parts, the other for labor. I shoulda been a plumber. Shout-out to Holt Plumbing. They were speedy, friendly and just about perfect. Just expensive. Sam had her 6 month check up and shots/immunizations on Wednesday. She cried during the shots but got over it quickly. I was proud of her. She … Continue reading the highlights

did i break a mirror or something? no, that was just the garage door and some pipes

Soooooo, here we are. Friday again. (yeah, this post was started on Friday, I realize it’s now Saturday). Doo da, doo da. I’m feeling a bit random and scattered this afternoon. Distracted. But that’s not unusual for me. It’s been a long week campers. For various reasons. (I have a thing for sentence fragments by the way. Grammar police beware.) Thursday was Household Disaster Day … Continue reading did i break a mirror or something? no, that was just the garage door and some pipes

wanna play…

…catch up that is?  It seems that real life, including not enough sleep, have taken a lot of my time away from the “internets”.  Ah well, that’s just how it goes I guess.  Basketball:  First of all, can we just say wow and congrats to the Belmont Bruins for what was apparently a great game against Duke tonight?  I somehow missed the game but tuned in at … Continue reading wanna play…

i just wanna hoot ‘n holler, is that too much to ask?

I’m in a funk so this will not be the most uplifting blog post you’ve read all day.  Why am I in a funk?  Here are some reasons: Because I need to learn either time management skills or I need to drop some obligations.  Let’s see, what obligations can I diss?  It has to be one or more of the following – work, school, Bean, … Continue reading i just wanna hoot ‘n holler, is that too much to ask?

taking a break

I’m not sure the bed is the optimal study area.  I’m sitting up in bed with my laptop, GRE books, study CDs, papers, notebooks, pens, highlighters, cell phone, emergency kleenex for my sneezes, beverages, and poptarts spread all around me on top of the quilt and on the nightstand.  I should probably move to my desk because my butt keeps falling asleep but it would be a … Continue reading taking a break
