This morning, and most mornings lately, my alarm has been going off at 4:30. Yesterday for example I went to the gym for an hour. I came home, packed lunches, got everyone up, dropped the bigs at school, took Jack to speech then worked as a substitute until I needed to pick my runner up and run errands for school projects. We got home at 6:30 in time to fix dinner, shower and go to bed. Today was more of the same except I switched speech for the grocery. How exactly families do it with two working parents… I haven’t figured it out yet. We’re scheduled to the millisecond around here. I thought I’d use the brief planning period I have to type a few things out.

  • I made a mistake. I engaged on Facebook. I messaged a friend. We managed to have a civil debate. The comments under her initial question totally spiked my blood pressure. Seriously spiked! I can’t Facebook right now. Someone tie my hands down before I have a stroke.
  • Apparently I didn’t learn my lesson. Yesterday, I wrote out a comment knowing I was tired, irritable and had been at school forever. Seriously, mid afternoon my Garmin was reading a bajillion steps. I commented. Then I deleted it because I can’t sit around all day stewing over the comments to my comments or thinking that people are thinking I’m a small-minded idiot. That was a recent comment I saw. What happened to a civil debate?
  • This kid finally got to celebrate her 9th birthday with her friends. The picture explains how she feels. 
  • Attention NOVA drivers… jogger well lit in crosswalks actually have the right of way. I don’t care how late you are for work. Don’t shake your head or roll your eyes. Just smile and wave or I want to drive my truck straight into your lane. 
  • God is feeling fickle with me at the moment. I’ve had lovely afternoons for recess overcast by a dang supermoon. These kids! Pray for the teacher and for your children to survive.
  • The Biden/Obama memes that are floating around right now are truly my new happy place. 
  • You’re welcome! 😏
  • Planning a Christmas holiday should not be as hard as I’m making it. My child just told me that she asked for prayers on my behalf at her youth event. 😟
  • That’s it. Time to pick up the kids from lunch. Planning period is done. Happy Hump day Y’all! 
  • Just one more…
