- Without being too cryptic, is it every family that has issues? I mean, at some point, doesn’t everyone within a family have issues with some other member? My parents came into town Friday and everything was very good until Sunday night when my mom was clearly very annoyed with me. It apparently had to do with me telling my kids to go to bed and therein lies the issue, always. I have rules as the mom and she’s the grandma and her ideas are different. I don’t want to overreact but we all go to a farmhouse in rural New York in three weeks and I hope to God the difference will be that we have so many other people. I don’t know; I cannot stress about the myriad things out of my control either.
- Both school and baseball are over. I feel like there needs to be an emoticon that perfectly captures the feeling of happy/sad/relieved all at once. I like baseball season, even though it seems very long. Especially since, when you think about it, we have been doing a sport almost entirely nonstop since the end of August. There’s a week off here and there for holidays but for the most part, flag football rolls right into soccer which rolls right into baseball. We do have a party next Saturday with the team to hang out and do trophies and all but then it’s right on to our Summer activities.
- The boys were off to camp today and they were super excited. The day camp they go to IS pretty awesome. They have really great coaches/counselors and always have a ton of fun. They go skating and swimming and have really cool activities. Sometimes when I drop them off, I wish I could stay there instead of going to work.
OK Tuesday Chat time!
“What are you bored of? Has something reached its 15 minutes and just needs to go?”
I don’t want to be super jaded and depressing so I won’t talk about what I was just thinking: I’m a little bored with life right now. I am so busy with the family life that I don’t have time to be happy or appreciate anything. I need to find a way to get excited again.
BUT, if I had to pick something that I am over, it would be the way social media goes crazy stupid over stuff. Some examples: the gorilla incident, the Cap going Hydra incident, any time Trump says anything or Hillary uses email. I mean, why do we need to get all up in arms over every. little. thing? I get so sick of hearing everyone’s two cents. Most people who do a lot of talking are the dumbest too, amiright? It gets so old – the fact that we can be up in the world’s business. It used to be if you wanted to be informed, you bought the newspaper or watched 60 Minutes. Now, we can barely get away from any of this stuff and I honestly think it is changing our society for the worse.
But hey, let’s not end on a sour note. I have some stuff I am really looking forward to like Alice Cooper in August and even though I have to solo parent and travel soon, we will be going to the beach and Sea World!
