Rest. Who Knew?

Rest. Who Knew?

Yesterday, my son went to spend the night at his grandparents’ house. I had planned to binge watch TV and eat all the things. Great plan, right? It totally was a great plan. I have barely worked or thought about working since Wednesday. I have thought a lot about the way my life has been going and what I can do to fix that. I think the most important part though was getting some time to sit mindlessly without serving anyone, doing anything that needed to be done, or passing out the second my ass hit the couch. I also slept until 7:30 this morning. Seven. Thirty. Things look much better today than they did last week. Rest. Who knew? This is yeah write’s nomo day 28. It’s also my submission to the weekend moonshine grid at yeah...

Now I’m Just Being Stubborn.

Now I’m Just Being Stubborn.

I do not have the strength for a real post. Again. All I wanted to do today was get home from work, put on my pajamas, and do more work. Well, I didn’t exactly want to do more work, but I had work to do and I wanted it to be done, so I that’s what I meant. I was almost home when I got a call from the woman at after care. Her: Is this Nathan’s mom? Me: Yes. Her: How far away are you? Me: Five minutes? Ten maybe? Her: Can you get here faster? Me: Um, no. Why? Her: Well, Nathan and another kid banged heads and his nose is bleeding and there is so much blood. Me: Ugh. Okay. Her: He’s really freaked out. Me: Okay. I’m coming. Her: I’m really freaked out, too. Me: Uh, okay. I’m… coming. I called my husband who was actually closer than I was. By the time I got to the school, he was already there. Nathan had blood remnants all over his face and a gash on the bridge of his nose. He was so upset, naturally. To make a very long story short, we took him to the emergency room. They took x-rays and his nose, thankfully, isn’t broken. No stitches, just glue and steri-strips. No concern for head injury. We skipped the tetanus shot since he had one a few years ago. He’s fine. He’ll be better tomorrow. I’m fine. I’ll probably be better tomorrow, too. I don’t like when my kid gets hurt. My poor little baby. But I really don’t have the energy to tell that story tonight. This is yeah write’s nomo Day...

Two Rules.

Two Rules.

I have a very long list of rules for myself that help to guide me through life. Here are some highlights: 1. Don’t buy stuff unless it is absolutely 100% necessary. Even then, reconsider. 2. Décor is never necessary. Today I bought a piece of décor. But it’s so great I could not pass it up. This beautiful thing is from modHero. I love it because it’s true. I really do enjoy coffee. This is yeah write’s nomo Day...
