It's been a week since my last post....LOTS can happen in a week ya know!
4 items come to mind....
1. Don't know why but I just kinda realized that you can post pictures here...and I'm kinda amazed...What was I thinking? I don' t have my kids/animals pics uploaded on the web anywhere....I know what you are thinking...you posted your cat's pictures...well I know this...and this is what started my "epiphany" it actually made me speechless for a week.....I ask myself why not? I'm not sure....it's pretty str8 forward. It's not like I don't have relatives half way across the country?? Weird.....
2. I'm really not a cool mom - DD on snow day "Umm..like I'm going to wear my hoodie today" (that was in a very "valley girl" voice - something like...UMMM Like-a I'm gonna wear-a my hoodie to-deh)
Mother of the year " umm - no you are wearing your jacket"
Whined "cool" 12 yo as ONE arm is half inserted "I'm saaa hottt" translated (I'm so hot--as in warm).
Queen Momma "I don't care - you're wearing your jackeT!"
Girl "Fine...buh I'm gonna stuff it in my locker when I get to school.."
The oh regal one..."Ok then...." thinking - AHA at least she's wearing it there...when the neighbors peer out their window she will have gone to school with one on....I'm so smart!! hehe...hey if she's stuffing her jacket in the locker...is she changing other articles of clothing....
DAMNIT just when I think I have it figured out...the monkey wrench gets tossed in!!
3. I'm super excited about christmas....I'm having 2 parties...one adult and one kids... very very excited...I'm at the end of making one quilt and going to do another -- as christmas gifts -
I have to say that I'm not usually this excited...wanna know why I am this year?? I'm not sure for sure....that did make sense right?
BUT this is what I know for sure this year:
-I have no preconceived notions about what I am going to receive - and it really doesn't matter. I know I know - we adults are suppose to "love giving not receiving" blah blah blah..i really really think that this has taken me an exorbant amount of time to "get over" I mean 22-23 should have done...NOT so...my DH spoils me..anyhow...this year I truly truly cannot wait to Give rather than receive. Not that I didn't love seeing my kids in the past..it's "everyone" this year...
-My christmas parties...and yes Kim Martha I have to thank you...for starting to plan in August - so then I got on the bandwagon (at a more acceptable time might I add - October) early rather than 2 weeks before christmas as usual.
4. OK I'm making this short - gosh I "talk" alot....The JOB...yes the JOB I've been waiting for has been posted..I need to apply for it and hopefully get an interview..but it's now POSTED!! woo hoo...I'll keep you updated!
OK got to go..resume...needs me...
