Random Tuesday – The month of May is annoying

Stacy Uncorked
  • Seriously; EVERYTHING happens in May. It’s not even my own work stuff but school and all the kid stuff just sort of piles up. We have upcoming field trips and end of year celebrations and all that jazz. I’m trying not to feel overwhelmed but it’s creeping in.
  • I’m not feeling stressed though. Not really. I’d like to think I’m pretty aware of this. BUT, my right eye has been twitching for the past few days and most things say that it’s probably stress. Can I be stressed and not know it??
  • Speaking of not knowing, last weekend, Zoey went missing. But we had no idea. Actually, I was sitting at the kitchen table thinking about how I hadn’t seen that dog around and then I thought to myself, “I don’t even care. But that must be because she’s not REALLY missing. Yeah, that’s it.” Then a minute later, my phone rang and they had her about four houses down. Funny thing is that we know those neighbors but they didn’t put together that we were the owners of said dog. I don’t even know how she escaped, to be honest. Maybe that’s what she ultimately wants? By all means, Zoey. I am fed up with pets.
  • I finally got my act together and went back to making overnight oats. I know it’s better for me than anything frozen or at Starbucks/Dunkin. The thing is: I’d much rather have something with eggs and a biscuit. Sigh. If I want to be healthy, this is what I must sacrifice.
  • OK, Tuesday Chat, I’m comin’ for you!

“It’s my birthday this weekend – I will be camping with Girl Guides. What is your perfect “this is how I spoil myself” birthday plan?”

First, happy early birthday to our host!

Now, how would I spoil myself? Hoo man, I don’t know. Firstly, I wouldn’t have to do anything for my children as soon as I got up. Contrary to most moms, I don’t want to sleep in. No, I want to get up before everyone and drink coffee in peace. I want  the perfect cup and as long as we’re fantasizing, let me be somewhere with the perfect weather so I can sit out on a deck and enjoy my coffee. I’d want breakfast – something with eggs and bacon.

The rest of my day might include things like a pedicure and time to watch any of my favorite movies. Of course, if we were going all out not even possible but if it were this is what I’d do: I’d be at an Iron Maiden concert. Or at Disney. Or on a beach in Hawaii. But for the mot part, I just want my kids to get along and have some good food.

My day would end with the biggest, tastiest cheeseburger of all time. Might look a little something like this.tumblr_o5u543wJQU1rrvqt3o1_1280

THAT would be heaven!

  1. I am so with you in the May is the silliest month because of everything that piles up. End of the school year and all the planning that needs to be done for summer, etc. ITS TOO MUCH. I call U.N.C.L.E

    Anyway, stopping over from Rory’s place and love, LOVE that burger and like you prefer early mornings so I can have my coffee in peace. School is out in a week and my mornings will be ALL mine again!

  2. I like your birthday plan… I’m down for a trip to Disney any time!! And let’s talk about that burger and how much diets suck the joy out of life. *sigh*
    And you are not wrong about May!!! Oh my word, school events, Mother’s Day, birthday, two major Guide events in one week for me, and the weather is still not nice enough to even enjoy a cup of coffee on my deck and collect my thoughts. A cruel twist Mother Nature!!
    Here’s to you June – don’t let us down!! 🙂
