Things turning around?

I’m in a zone. Picture it – I’ve got my sweats on. I just got the boys on the bus. It’s dark in the house, the only light shining through is the darkness of the gloomy, rainy day outside. The light from my laptop screen is brightening my face. I’ve got my feet up. I’ve […]

Too-Soon Weekly Recap

I’m writing this a day early. I got antsy. I really don’t even have a lot to write about but I wanted to write this while everything was fresh in my mind. This week was pretty good. It was my first week on the floor by myself. I was cleared to be by myself on […]

Busy Body.

So much time and so little to do! Strike that. Reverse. My planner has been filled with to-dos all week. I have written everything I need to do over the course of this week. For the most part, actually not really, I haven’t followed the scheduled planned to-dos for this week at all. Here is […]

One Week.

I have one week before beginning the next chapter of my life. Today starts day one of zen. Heh. I kinda have to laugh at that because today has been anything but zen. I woke up this morning with a chip on my shoulder and just crabby! I was under the impression the boys would […]

I got the job!

It’s official. I got the phone call last night. It was from Erika, the other team lead. She said that she wanted to offer me the position. She said whatever hours I wanted they were willing to do whatever. She asked if I wanted to be a part of the AM or PM class. I […]

Feeling Christmasy

Tis the season. I’m going to do my best to stay on track while writing this entry. My mind is all over the place and I finally have a day off where I don’t have someone who is home sick with me. I’m taking it in with Lindsay Sterling Radio on Spotify. I have quite […]

Something New

I’m sick of always coming here talking about how anxious I am about work. Today I’m not going to do that. I am going to talk about other things going on in my life. So buckle up, we’re doing something new today. Nick’s Birthday Nick’s birthday went well. He had a sleepover with his best […]

Calmer

I am feeling much calmer these past two days. Monday I had work, and I was a wreck before work. Once I was at work and realized no one was going to yell at me for abruptly leaving on Thursday, I relaxed a little bit. My shift was pretty laid back. I worked from 12-4pm […]

Lots of Manias

This is going to be another hodge podge entry for you. A little bit of everything, but I brought photos so it’s all good, right?! So let’s get started. Cleaning Mania I had a huge touch of the cleaning mania bug for about a week or so, then I went to an agitated mania for […]

Manic … Friday.

I wanted to sing, “Just another manic Monday, whoa whoa. Wish it was Sunday! That’s my fun day! Whoa Whoa. Just another manic Monday.” You’re welcome for putting that song in your head now. I am really, really, manic. I’m like the good manic though. I call this mania, the cleaning mania. I get SO much cleaning […]

Brain Dump – Part 1

EDIT: I’m going to come back and cross things off this list as I do them. Even though I wrote the lists out as in order in which I’d like to complete. I did not take into consideration that I would be doing these randomly instead of in order. They just were put in order […]

Motivated but Lazy.

That describes my mood to a tee! I am motivated to get some things done but so incredibly lazy and not willing to do anything. Ugh! It starts with the fact that I haven’t done anything today minus tell Mikhail to drink his Miralax and read organizing and cleaning blogs. It started on Thursday. Mikhail […]

Moments Peace

I have a few moments peace right now. The boys are in summer school. I am doing laundry and cleaned up the kitchen this morning. Yesterday was interesting. Mikhail woke up with the moans and groans, and of course, the growls. He didn’t want to go to summer school. Lovely. He was super excited about […]

Overwhelmed.

I have been incredibly overwhelmed the past few weeks. I feel like everyone has these such high standards for me to take on and I cannot even come close to meeting them. They want the house to look a certain way. They want the kids acting a certain way. I need to find a job […]

New Dentist.

Nick is going to a new dentist today. We were able to find him a dentist office that accepts our insurance. I just hope and pray it’s not like all the others that treat their customers like shit just because of the insurance they have. I’m hoping because of the location of this office it […]

Manic?

Ok, first things first… I feel incredibly better than I felt previously. Monday was an OK day. I felt a little better and was able to eat most of the day without feeling sick or rushing to the bathroom. Tuesday, I woke up with a great feeling. My coffee went down smoothly without being sick. I was […]

Almost All Set.

I am almost all ready to rock and roll with my surgery. I went to see the doctor yesterday who will be doing the surgery for my pre-op appointment. It was pretty laid back. She explained essentially what we’re doing and how everything worked. She will be cutting me at my belly button and putting […]

Boredom.

I AM SO BORED! I simply don’t feel like doing anything. My chores, for the most part, are done. I have minor things I could do but it would seriously take me less than 10 minutes to do everything. So why not just do that 10 minutes of work!? Because I’m a rebel without a cause! No seriously, […]

Blogging Therapy

I’m hoping writing instead of sitting in silence with my thoughts would be a better option. So, here I am, writing to you. I had a semi-productive day today – not as productive as the other people in this house, in some people’s eyes. The day started early with arguing and screaming between Mikhail and […]

Whole Lot Of Nothing.

I really don’t have much to write about but I thought I’d come and write anyway. Things are going well. I feel a lot better than I was; I don’t have a cold anymore or other ailments bugging me. I’ve been doing a lot of coloring. I’ll share the pages I’ve colored with you. All […]
