Thank you to my new internet friends for making me feel a whole lot better about myself the other day. As my friend Auntie Nettie knows, I don’t make friends easily. She has been my friend/put up with me since our first day of college almost 18 years ago. She has been there through just about everything important that has happened to me in those years, including being my maid of honor (horror, as she called it) at my wedding. So to Auntie Nettie and all my new internet friends, thank you for cheering me up when I was so very much down.
I think I’ve hit a wall. Annie and Izzie are fighting me hard on naps the past couple of days. When the girls don’t nap, I don’t get anything done. Drew doesn’t nap anymore anyway unless we’re in the car. And while I LOVE my boy, he’s turned into a little whiney man these days and it’s making me crazy. I’m tired of waking the girls up to go to the bus to get Meg. I think I’m just plain tired. We race around from the bus stop to quick dinners to softball or chorus concert. There are 4 huge loads of laundry waiting to be folded in my bedroom which I can’t stand looking at, but have no desire to fold. I need a haircut, but to get one requires a)that my hairdresser work today and she doesn’t or b)taking the kids with me tomorrow which is totally stressful. Wow, I can’t even read what I wrote without thinking that I sound like a complete whiney brat. Sigh.
On a good note, Megan had her first grade choral concert last night. We bought a sweet outfit at The Children’s Place for a mere $12 that she wore and she looked beautiful, and sang so sweetly. Last year at the kindergarten concert, we arrived late and coming in late was so stressful that she didn’t sing a word. Last night we arrived 30 minutes early (which as you know, I am all for!) and good thing we did. The middle school gym was PACKED. It was so nice to see her singing and having fun. I took pictures but they’re grayish. Here’s one anyway (she’s in the pink and her friend Samantha is in the yellowish-green). And yes, she really is super tall for a 7 year old.
I’m looking for ways to cheer myself up today. My darn good cup of coffee isn’t helping. Any suggestions oh wise internets?
