Well, I somehow managed to skip posting on Monday so I guess I’d better try to for today, eh?
- Well, solo parenting is… tiring. I’m only two days in and it’s stressful. Maybe I’m making it out to be worse than it is. Truth be told, my kids are being very good. I also think my husband put the fear of God in them before he left.
- I really thought I was getting Dakota’s illness last night. She was sick all weekend and is still harboring one of those gross wet coughs. But now that she’s basically better, you know someone is bound to get it. Chances are me, as she coughed all over me.
- I love how my FB feed has been so bipolar lately. I have friends who believe we need to take control of this overseas situation and others who welcome all refugees with open arms. I want to say so many things but I also want to stay out of it because I don’t want to invite that kind of conversation and confrontation into my life. Maybe it’s irresponsible of me to want to ignore current events but I am a happier person when I do.
- Can you believe this time of year? The audacity it has to spiral out of control and stumble towards year’s end all so quickly! I have already begun buying things here and there; I like to slowly accumulate gifts and then take inventory.
- I’m getting REALLY close to buying my gift to myself: new tattoo. I am actually contemplating going to the shop on my lunch break one day and just seeing what they can do and for how much. I want it; I NEED it.
- OK, onto the Tuesday chat!
Funny, I was just thinking in the car the other morning that I didn’t feel like I had done anything to make my kids really proud of me. Elliot said something to Isaac about how mom doesn’t make a lot of money (I make OK money) and I’m not famous. Do you need to be these things for your kids to be proud? of course not.
When I think about my best traits, loyalty always comes up. I am probably the most loyal person I know, as conceited as THAT sounds! If you’ve earned it, I’m there for you no matter what. I stick by you; I don’t tend to leave. I do it with people, jobs, tasks I committed to. I’m brand and restaurant loyal. Ash appreciates this about me most as well but of course, you can’t be just one thing and have that be your legacy. But I do hope people look back and say that about me.
Of course, I really hope my kids and other family remember me for being a good person, hard-working and steadfast. I don’t give up on stuff and you can count on me to always be moving along, pushing forward, getting it done.
