Swimming Injury

Did you know it was possible to dislocate an appendage while at swim lessons? From recent experience... Yes... Yes it is. Just wondering what the ER visit will cost!

Quality time with my son

This week, I had four days off... from both jobs. I took him to swimming lessons, we went out for breakfast, we went for lunch (he wanted to try sushi), we put up the pool, we grilled out for dinner, etc. He actually told me that he enjoyed having me home with him. It made me feel so good to know he appreciates me.

A Mom Moment

When I left work last night, I am at home until Monday morning. This is my normal vacation time, while my mom is busy. My son and I went to breakfast, swimming, shopping, made homemade pizza, and got our pool set up. The best moment was when he gave me a big hug and said "I'm glad to have you home." I felt so good. Awwwwwwww.

I am my mother's daughter

It's official...

I am my mother's daughter. As I sat here this morning, trying to relax, I suddenly decided there were things I had to do. I had to clean out my closet and then organize the stuff for my business I am re-applying myself to.

I find that I am trying to do so many things, for everyone else.

Let me give you an idea... working two jobs, going back to college, teaching sunday school, re-starting my business, trying to put give-away packets together for an upcoming convention, helping my son with his robotics team, blogging, etc.

Did you know that you cannot put more than 24 hours in a day?

As I think about everything I am doing, I am tired... but doing so much... for so many others... and not taking time for myself... I see my mom in myself... because that is how she is.

I am a mom, who works two jobs, and is raising a child.

I multi-task...

If you don't directly address something to me, don't assume that I am listening to you. If I am not looking at you, my brain is not paying attention to you; instead, I am planning my evening, thinking about my child, what we have in the fridge at home, what time I'll get home tonight, when I will have spare time...

I multi-task... So excuse me if I am not paying attention.

Having a difficult day already

Yesterday was rough - started out bad... anything that could go wrong... DID!

Today is starting out just like yesterday. I am stressed and frustrated.

I failed my college course, so I need to retake it... I absolutely hate economics - I don't understand it... and now I have to retake it! That made my morning even worse than it already was - and I didn't think that was possible.

I need to do something with my life and make my commitments. I feel like I am going in circles and digging myself in a hole.

It's gonna be a long day...

Including the hard boiled eggs...

A Week of Freedom

I have officially turned in my last two finals. Keep your fingers crossed that I don't have to retake either class...

At least now I have a week to myself... to blog... and to work on my home-based business.

It's sad when a week to myself is a big deal!!

Summer Vacation

Okay, school is officially out!

We are now on summer vacation and Gramma is officially in charge.

My son has already found that the cell phone is completely available - there go my 1000 minutes a month! And you wonder why I don't have texting on his phone.

This is going to be a long summer.

Cell phones, video games, etc. etc.

Cargo Pants - Human Chipmunk

My son loves in cargo pants. It has become evident as to why...

The school year is ending and he needs to empty his locker. I would, as a parent, assume the backpack would be a great place, but I am wrong... AGAIN! What else would you use the cargo pants pockets for??

Last night he was at the orthodontist and his cell phone rang. He couldn't find it, although we could clearly hear one of his pockets ringing. Instead, as he dug, we found: magnets (from his locker), his glasses (in their case), his retainer container, several pens and pencils, etc etc etc. Those pockets remind me of Mary Poppins and her magic carpet bag.

Maybe I can quite carrying my purse if I switch to cargo pants??!!

My cat snores... And talks in her sleep!

Children and cell phones

My son has a phone. He doesn't have texting because it's not necessary. His friend recently got a phone. She calls him all hours, even after I tell them to get off the phone. She doesn't respect this. Just because she has free reign, he doesn't. How do I reign this in?

Obsessive... or just weird? **ADDITIONS**

I have to eat all the yellow jelly beans first.

I throw black jelly beans out... YUCK!

Tri-Cut manila file folders must be collated - don't take just one position - it throws my sorting all off!!

I cannot use fine point pens they write too scratchy!

Yummy Organic Food, when in the neighborhood

Found a local restaurant with organic and vegan food.

Totally awesome food. Something new to try.

If you're in the neighborhood (Brookfield, WI), visit Cafe Manna.

BlogFrog Community

Totally addicting! You just have to try it!

Decisions for your child... right or wrong?

As a parent, have you ever made decisions that you thought were in the best interest of everyone, but then, as time goes by, you start to wonder if the decision you made was the best? Could you have made a different choice? What will the outcome be? Should I have looked at it different? Will this turn out the best or have I made a bad choice?
