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... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

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,... Continue Reading →

organize me

Parent orientation went well after the initial scramble to get kiddo settled in next door and her supplies all gathered up (because waiting until the last minute is one of the things I do best). Her teacher is young and bubbly and the school itself is super nice. We have a huge packet of information... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

Class of ’94, redux

I guess this will be the post where I rehash anything publicly sharable from my weekend. And then wonder why I feel the need to do so on the internet. But anyway.... I gathered up the 20-30 bags of stuff needed to travel with a child and headed to the fam's on Saturday. (By the way, why... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

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...

welcome to my weekend

Ah, Saturday.  How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways...  The Accountant took off for work earlier as he is prone to do on Saturdays this time of year.  Gotta love tax season.  It's 9:00am and I've just woke up.  Or should I say, I've just got up.  I've been awake for a while...

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...

doubting and questions

Please excuse my fit of panic yesterday.  It's just a bit overwhelming when confronted with bits of knowledge that I haven't had to use in years but that I have to resurrect to pass some test, only to brain dump it all once more, never to be used again.  Seems a tad bit silly doesn't it?  I...

uh oh

I am too old to be studying.  I do not remember how to calculate the area of a circle.  I do not remember what absolute values, binomials or rational exponents are.  Nor do I recall the root of the word "circumnavigate" or what an analogy bridge is.  I am going to fail.
