Sunday morning in mid-October πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I’m lying in bed with a coffee anticipating my day’s events.

I’ll be mostly out of the house today.

An adorable little rant*

*About back to school.

I asked my teens when they’re going back to school.

I bet you know what they said. Nothing, that’s what. They don’t know because they don’t check because they don’t care.

I don’t even blame them.

But I want to know what is going on because I’m a mom and I want everyone out of this godforsaken house while I continue to stay here part-time(ish) and it would really help me if I had an iota of an idea what the eff is happening with school now that the pandemic is over (and starting again but whatever).

How a simple 5-minute activity turned into an hour-long ordeal

I’m a bit discombobulated today, all over the place with my thoughts. I started out doing a sports registration for a kid which reminded me some of the canceled activities during lockdown resulted in credits issued. I had to go searching through emails and financial accounts to find out what was reimbursed, whether it was a credit on their account for future activity or on my credit cards, how much of it was there that I could apply to now, etc. There is so much online activity these days, I mean, how does on live without the internet today? Especially … Continue reading How a simple 5-minute activity turned into an hour-long ordeal

You’re too sensitive, stop taking things so personally

Caution: eyeroll emoji overload (sorry not sorry) πŸ™„

You have been warned. πŸ˜›

At no time in my life have I ever felt more overly sensitive about every little thing than while raising teenagers.

Shocking, I know. πŸ™„

Summer so far: lifted restrictions, new hobbies and a little update

This is the first summer in which neither kid is playing baseball. They both started with t-ball at age 4… They are now 13 and a half and 16.

Because we are still in the slowly emerging opening up of lockdown (stage 2 with stage 3 happening in a week) not much activity is available for them. My son picked up golf and is looking for a part-time job, but my daughter is in that tricky age where she’s too young to get a job and there aren’t too many options available right now for volunteering and other things.

So summer so far is looking very similar to the last 16 months of lockdown… Kids staring at screens.

Redefining parental roles

There is/was a total lunar eclipse happening today, May 26, 2021.

I wonder if the magnetic energy is influencing the cause of all the recent upheaval I’ve succumbed to. Of course, succumbed is a subjective description of current events; some people who shall remain nameless will actually point blame right at me for having caused said upheaval.
