The morning

We left the house early today to take one child to Running Club. Yep, they get to school an hour and a half early to run about 2 miles.. for fun.. Yes, I am sure he is my child. No, I don't know why he wants to do that.

Then I drove straight to Shipley's to get the other one a donut for breakfast. Yes, I see the imbalance. But no, today I don't really care. Some days a filled bar with no nuts is just what it takes to get the day rolling.

Oh, And I neither ran, nor ate donuts. I figure I am as neutral as I can be.

What?? No drama??

It has been a wonderful weekend. Nothing special, just a nice, relaxing weekend. Laughs, family working together, no drama, these are the things I enjoy. This week, I am hopeful for more of the same. This year is moving quickly and I can hardly believe that the end of October is upon us. Before I blink I know that Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here. I guess I should get the plastic Easter eggs out of the decorative vase. And the Mother's Day cards off the mantel. And the summer pool schedule off the fridge.  Maybe. Although, if I work it right, I might have something of every holiday up around the house and I'd never have to remember to decorate! We'll have to wait and see.

Too long!

Ok, here is the short version of life for the last few weeks:
Get up, go to school, teacher/do paper work, chat with coworkers, teach/more paperwork, head home to cook dinner/buy burgers, read kid books/do my homework, check facebook, play facebook scrabble, do more homework/read boring textbook, hug my kids and send them to bed, look my husband in the eyes and say "Man, am I tired".

Throughout I have moments of shotgun questioning as I drive the boys home, time where I load the dishwasher or throw very specific items into clothes washer so people aren't naked, go to the Walmart so we don't starve, and watch a little TV. I have cleaned up the floor and stairs multiple times where the dog has taken to peeing if not attended to immediately. Oh, and my firstborn turns twelve soon. My youngest has a very forward girl making brash advances at school. And the love of my life has a birthday next week. I feel like I need to start Christmas shopping soon. And really need to pay some bills.

No time to be poetic or thoughtful. Maybe one day...
