You probably wouldn’t know it if you know me ‘online’ but I’m a huge introvert. And nerd. I’ll save that for another post though. As the 3rd and final child, only girl and complete shrimp of the family, I was often overlooked. My mom listened to my opinions, but being so outnumbered I gave up […]
As soon as the Christmas trees are clearanced out, hearts and candies and frilly cards are in the stores. A lot of us have just gone through the travesty of traveling with their kids to 15 relatives houses who all are perfectly mobile but think ‘it’s too far for me to drive’–forgetting that traveling with […]
So are you?
I’m of the ‘throw the salt over your shoulder’ and ‘don’t walk under a ladder’ variety.. also the ‘knock wood’… kind of superstitious…
but black cats don’t bother me at all…
nor does Friday the 13th..
The last few years have changed a lot. Being a mom, twice over, losing a baby, and then having a healthy-ish pregnancy nearly to term, as well as all the other problems I’ve had… well they help you to gain perspective. Whereas 10, 5, maybe even 2 years ago I would surely find something about […]
I’ve never been one for ‘get this kid out of me’… and it’s not CARRYING the kid that’s the problem. Because he/she is awesome, right? My doctor promised. Lol. What the problem is.. is.. well everything else. All the symptoms.
Let’s get it all out there shall we? I’ve been hinting around at this, but this […]
In 4 weeks, my oldest will turn 5. I’ll also have a 2 year old and be 33 weeks pregnant. So why don’t I feel like a grown up? Most days I still feel like that inner 13 year old, never quite sure of what’s coming next, and more than willing to just go along […]
Today was a WEIRD day. I had a show on DVD that needed to go back to the library with 2 episodes left on it, and some packages and letters to mail, so I encouraged my little fauxmschooler to color and read, and then watch educational tv on the tablet while I got that done. […]
For some reason as I lay trying to sleep at some point the other night/morning I was thinking about what a huge lie that beauty is. Perhaps it’s something to do with the whole celebrities trying to get attention on awards shows thing, or perhaps it’s because I have 2 girls already and thinking about […]
When we visited family this past weekend, I was shocked when my sister in law invited my younger child over to stay, but not my older one. Yes, my older one has been there 2 or 3 times on her own, and they have always reported excellent behavior (despite them giving her koolaid and treats […]
It seems like I’ve been late with everything lately. Online payments. In the mail payments. Doing things around the house. Doing things outside the house. I’m not sure if my brain is trying to speed things up, or slow things down.
I’ve gotten a lot more paranoid during this pregnancy. If a fly or spider gets […]
