Back in time

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Yesterday the younger child and I walked to the store. She scootered and I followed giving her the limits of how far she could go (third tree, second light pole, etc.). It occurred to me that I used to do the same with the older child at this same age, though when T was 8 […]

Candy time

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

I’m currently alone for a few hours and my first thought was “Sit and play Candy Crush or eat candy without sharing?”
Believe it or not, I actually played and still haven’t had any candy- though I’m guessing I will as soon as I post this
Did I post Thursday night? I think so […]

closing out the to-do list

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Busy, busy day. Of course it started with me oversleeping, still recovering from not enough sleep Tuesday night, I guess. Tomorrow I cannot afford to sleep in- maybe I’ll set my phone in the bathroom so that I have to get up to turn it off. And I have grown to hate the sound of […]

no sleep will mess with you

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

So yesterday while I was driving home from dance, a tire tread hit my car. I was concerned for the undercarriage but it all felt fine so I kind of forgot about it. Today in the daylight it occurred to me to actually look at my car. Yeah it’s pretty damaged. As far as I […]

just me and my tea

Monday, October 21st, 2013

If I could have one hour of silence every night, I think I would be a calmer person. I enjoy my time in the morning, but at that time I’m gearing up for the day. My mind is cluttered with what I’m making for breakfast, how long until I wake the girls, if I have […]

say yes to the dress

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

Today Tabi and I made the rounds at a few Goodwill stores looking for a prom dress for her Halloween costume. The seventh dress tried was the winner, but we’re still out of luck with shoes so I guess that’s tomorrow. We did manage to get the makeup she needed as well, but we’re still […]

soothing days

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Yesterday I was fortunate to get a lunch out with a friend. It felt so good to sit and chat with her and the two hours flew by. We haven’t talked in awhile due to vacations and illnesses so we barely scratched the surface of topics. I feel there are 3 layers to real conversation […]

This evening has been pleasant and has led me to some times of reflection.
This year has really sucked- I find that to be my mantra. I hate to equate it to the number 13 because I like that number, but it has certainly been a year of bad luck.
So much good has occurred this […]

Today our goal was to clean the garage, which was a tall order and we instantly realized that it wasn’t going to be finished today. We divided it into sections and got one section done. Not as much as I would have liked, but better than before we did anything. We took two trips to […]

We had an unexpected rain storm today accompanied by rather cold temps. I also had a very stressful drive to and from dance so when I got home it was time for PJs- but not just any pajamas, no no- footie pajamas! With owls on the feet Because, you know, I’m special, or […]
