Really, This Is Just A Big Whine Of A Post….

Sometimes, I wonder why I work. I will admit that I’ve got a great gig. I work three days a week, and two of those are from home. The work I do is challenging, and I get a decent paycheck for it. Plus, my agreement with my boss is that three days a week (salaried) means 24 hours. If I work more than 24 hours one week, another week I’ll…

What Was I Supposed To Do Again?

I have really had a bad week. I know myself, and I know that I need “alone” time periodically – ok, sometimes more than periodically. It makes me feel like I’m a selfish person, but it’s something hard-wired in me. Without some alone time every once in awhile where I can just veg, I get … stressed. And crabby. So why haven’t I had any alone time lately? It’s my…

Forget Underpants Gnomes! I’ve Got Bigger Problems

I am so screwed. I lost my car keys. How, you might ask? Well, if I really knew the answer to that question, I’d know where my keys were. I had them when I dropped the wee ones at daycare yesterday morning. I had them when I drove home. After that, who knows! When I went to go to yoga last night, I was in a hurry. I changed from…

Cupid Strikes Again!

A good friend of mine from college, who I met the second or third week I was there and have been close with ever since has not had the best luck when it comes to romance. He had a few girlfriends when we were at Northwestern, but never “the one.” Then again, at Northwestern, many people never had any significant others, so maybe he did have some luck there. He…

Shower? Check!

Phew! The shower went off without a hitch. Well, at least without a major hitch. And everyone had fun. The biggest issue was my concern over getting there before the shower started. This was a birthday party weekend, as we had a birthday party both yesterday and today for the kids at noon. My husband had baseball both days (PA and playing, respectively), so I was on my own for…

Here Comes The Shower ….

At yoga this morning, my instructor was talking about how there has been something off in the planets that has been very negative for the past five weeks. Supposedly, it ends tomorrow or the next day, and things will look up at that point. I don’t know how much of that I believe, but she makes a good point in the number of people who’ve gotten sick lately and just…

Mommy’s Little Helper

Wow, I was looking back at my recent posts, and I’ve been in quite the crabby mood lately. Sorry for whining so much! Usually I’m more positive. I’ll have to assume it’s the never-ending winter, but that’s a bad excuse. Anyway, today is a happier (and shorter!) day. My kids generally eat fairly healthy foods. They’re little kids though, so there are definitely exceptions to this. But some of the…

Someone Doesn’t Like Me!

Someone just had it in for me today. Fortunately, they thought this morning’s yuck was enough, so the rest of the day wasn’t so bad. That or it was just someone else’s turn to have things go wrong. First of all, I was exhausted this morning because someone didn’t put the cats in the basement last night, so they were meowing outside the kids’ rooms most of the night. I…

Should He Stay Or Should He Go?

Well, tonight seems like a good night to talk kindergarten, especially since I just came from the Kindergarten Roundup (just in case). My dilemma is whether or not to try to have Mister Man attend kindergarten next year. His birthday is October 11, so he misses the cutoff. Easy decision, right? Not so much, for a number of reasons. I want to do the right thing for him, but I…

Priorities, Priorities

Sometimes my brain doesn’t work. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has this issue, but it’s awfully frustrating when I can’t see the forest for the trees. I hate causing problems for myself that should be easily solved. Today was one of those days. It’s a Tuesday, which means that I don’t work and both wee ones are at preschool, so I can get a lot done. Usually,…
