Thanksgiving Eve.

Thanksgiving Eve.

I have a ton of work to do by tomorrow morning (and a ton more this weekend) but I’m off from my day job until Monday and I’m quite pleased about that. This is the first year in over a decade that I’m not hosting Thanksgiving. I’ve been threatening for years to stop cooking and this year we got an invite to celebrate with a friend’s family. While I used to love to cook, the pressure to put together an elaborate meal (one my kid won’t even eat, btw) with never enough time to prep is just too much. It was never even that many of us but it was too much. I work a day job plus freelance plus family and it is JUST. TOO. MUCH. So today I got out of work early, took my kid and his busted face to the doctor (his face is rapidly becoming less busted), then came home and worked. I had dessert for dinner and now I’m going to bed at 9. Tomorrow, I’ll wake up and work and then not cook and it will be glorious. I haven’t been this relaxed on a Thanksgiving Eve in, well, over a...

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.

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.
