I truly am praying my little prayers, my little hopes throughout the day. Once I wake up. When I'm contemplating getting up though and wondering how I'm going to get it all done, I probably say the worthless prayers like wishing for the lottery, a nanny, or a limo service. But, then, I get up and somehow it all comes together.
And, in the midst of it all, I continue to stretch myself thin. Class mom. WTF?!?! Dance on Saturday's 9:45am. WTF?!?!?! Part-time job/Second job. WTF are you thinking?!?!?!?
I wonder if there is this another dimension of me that watches it all to make sure I am keeping track of the good things. The blessings. The making of new friends. I see my cell phone list of people growing. The invites to parties growing. So, of course, I try to enjoy reaching out to those around me. Wondering where I can help, be a blessing. Make sure that the kids are getting some good experiences.
Then, there is this selfish part of me that just wants off this ride. Just wants quiet. In fact, I just yelled to the kids "BE QUIET!!"
So, that is probably my big reason for not being here much.
I actually like it here. This is where I can be friends in a quiet way.
Well, thanks for letting me get this out. Appreciate it.
Next up, gotta get Faith ready for a birthday party that is a dress-up birthday party?!?! I got real pissy when I saw the invite, basically, asking me to think about Halloween costumes in September. You gots to be kidding me?!?!? That's what it said--"Please wear your Halloween costumes to the party."
Bright side--but not really. I have one feverish kid so I am able to send Faith with the sitters to the party down the street. The sitters are dressing up--suckers!! hahaha I'm just kidding. Really. I'm just kidding. But, I'm thrilled to hold off going until Daddy gets home to stay with Elijah. I'm terrible--I realize it. And, sometimes, take pride in it! heehee
Have a great day. Enjoy it.
I have alot to say about the election and the bailout but I don't have the eloquence or energy to go into it.
I do hope to go apple picking tomorrow. I'm trying to get a caravan of people going. I don't know--it's all about getting the kids doing something really memorable together. I'm such a sap these days.
Talk to you later.
