I need a nap. I don't think I can get through the concert tonight without some rest. I am excited about using the free-trial bow!

Have you all heard about grow bags? I saw a youtube that teaches how to make them super cheap out of landscape/weed barrier fabric. I think I may try them in the spring and put a small grow-bag container garden on my back deck - it's the only place in the yard (aside from our mailbox) that gets a good amount of sun all summer.

Dd slept well too last night. 

 

 

Hooray for sleep!

 

 

I originally read this as "slept too well", and was puzzled.

I think I’m going to need to quit the gym. There’s no afternoon childcare hours, which is when I really need it. I’m kind of mad at myself— when I was checking it out they said, “oh, these are just our summer hours,” and I just assumed that meant there would be more hours come fall, but no.
I’m really bummed. This was supposed to be “my thing,” my me time. Now I have nothing that is my thing and I’m with them 24/7 so me time is just binging on chocolate in my room while bribing them with TV. :(

I guess I just need to accept it. In a couple years oldest will be 13 and youngest will be 5 and hopefully I’ll be able to leave them home without them eating each other. Hopefully.

Well.... I've had a philosophical shift in the way I think about DS and his education. I think it is good. It's hard on me being a real rule follower and all, because this means not doing what everyone expects or says we must do. It means being more individual and trying to do what's best for this kid, even though I feel like I haven't the slightest idea what I'm doing .... we'll just call it personal growth. I've been working on looking at his strengths and working on bringing those out, as well as seeing what his weaknesses are and figuring out how to shore those up as well. Sometimes I hate being a parent. It's too hard. I just want to be a character in a book or a movie or something.

Yes.  It's too bad that they can't put growth agents in their shampoo or something.  It would be so much easier than shots.  (We haven't decided for or against growth hormone shots, but it is an option for the two youngest.)

I think I like this shorter hair cut. You know something is right when you can fall out of bed in the morning, look at yourself in the mirror and say, "Woman--you look sassy, today!" 

And if you can face the mirror again after the day and say, "Still looking sassy", that's a good haircut. :laugh:

For Jean

 

Self-Control

 

I found a spider in my hair,

I didn’t scream and didn’t swear,

I didn’t succumb to the strain,

Just calmly washed it down the drain.

 

I found a spider on my face,

I didn’t yell, burn down the place,

My self-control’s a thing of pride,

I never squealed and never died!
