I’m feeling a little overcommitted lately – not on a daily basis necessarily, but just thinking about the next 3 months. There is so much going on (and so much money flying out my pockets) it makes me dizzy. Believe me when I say this is the calm before the storm. Today was a hard day for some reason. First up, it’s Tuesday, which is really the worst day of the week no matter what anyone else says. It was more difficult than usual to get out of bed for my run (it happened though). Getting ready took forever. Then, I completely flew off my handle about the dumbest thing on my way to work,which then resulted in a rant and being offensive. I really shouldn’t be allowed to talk to people after my drive to work for at least 30 minutes.
Then there’s potty training – which is bumming me out. Really, it’s just a reflection of things to come, right? If she’s this stubborn now at almost 3 – I am in some serious trouble! I’m really hoping she doesn’t turn into this…
Ok, so that might be a little dramatic. (please God, please!)
But, let’s focus on the positive. There have been a few thing making me smile.
Like this guy — who got a great report card last week and has been super sweet and helpful lately.
We implemented a “point system” with him about a week ago and it’s really working! He makes his bed, he dresses himself would prodding, he helps with his sister. I love this age.
It’s definitely not going to last forever.
Although L has been been nicer to me lately (and at times even REQUESTS me) – but she’s still a daddy’s girl.
This RANDOM picture.
My Kindergarten class.
I went to elementary school in Massachusetts and I’m only Facebook friends with exactly ONE (1) person that I went to school with (sad, right?). I logged on at the right time tonight and happened to notice her comment on this picture. It blew my mind. Like woah. I mean, this picture was taken 28 years ago. Yes 28. And I can still recognize people who I haven’t seen since I was 11 (for the record, I have NO idea who the tuxedo lady is). Social media is pretty amazing.
And suddenly, I feel better.
What is making you smile today?
