Since I missed yesterday I thought I would check in today with some random thoughts, confessions, observations & what have you running through my brain... 13 or so
One. My old friend Soldier Boy (if you have been around for awhile) is giving up the military contractor vagabond life & ginormous paycheck and moving back from Baghdad. I am super excited to have him back on American soil full time! #andthatsallihavetosayaboutthat
Two. I have several pairs of the same black pants from Old Navy that are currently looking tired and a little loose. So I just ordered a new pair... in the same size... like a moron. #kickingmyself
Three. I hardly ever wear real shoes on the weekends anymore. It's either some form of Nikes, comfy boots or slippers. Come Thursday and Day 4 of "work shoes" I want to scream. But I will never be one of the women that wears tennis shoes with work clothes, even business casual. #ijustcant #youlookschlumpy
Four. Feeling uber guilty about having to yell at my youngest child to get her ass moving every morning but she's so freaking slow. I have zero patience too. Any Mom's out there have suggestions?
Five. I have a horrible habit of mentally blowing every crisis in my personal life out of proportion within minutes. I need to write this shit down because within an hour of something going awry I have written a screenplay in my mind of how it is going to play out for the next 5 years. #andallmylinesinthescreenplaytoo
Six. After drinking black coffee for 18 days I can honestly say I like black coffee. I forgot how much. #onceyougoblack
Seven. I am finally nearing the end of watching "The L Word" on Netflix and I've gotten so entrenched in the characters lives I am sad it's coming to a close. #isitjustme
Eight. I bought an expensive Chi flat iron 2 years ago and the thing is already on it's last legs. It currently only heats up about 50% of the time. Given the fact that I only straighten my hair maybe 50% of the time I think this is unacceptable. Aren't these supposed to be professional grade, stay on all day type of appliances? #pos #justwahtiwantedtobuynext
Nine. I haven't been to a concert in several months and I am jones-ing. Mumford and Sons is coming in April and a ticket would be about $75. Ouch. #cantdecidehowbadiwantogo
Ten. I have some random small maintenance issues in my house that need attention. I can't afford to pay anyone so I am asking my ex. God help me and I may regret it but that fucknut owes me a gazillion dollars and he can actually fix shit sooo... #butnottillIcandrinkwineagain
Eleven. I am officially counting down the days now to when I can have a glass of wine. It's gone from what day am I on to how many days do I have left. This may be bad but the good news is I am not even so concerned about when I can eat bread, cheese, something sweet again. I think I can keep the clean eating going for a good bit longer. I am projecting first little food indulgence on Superbowl Sunday. #drinksonday31 #dontevencare
Twelve. My daughter's boyfriend is a senior so she will be going to senior prom this year. I have made the executive decision that we are renting a dress. Checking out options but she could rent a designer gown like a Badgley Mischka for under $100 on Rent the Runway. Why should I fork out $500 on a dress she won't wear again. #bestideaever
Thirteen. And lastly but not leastly a mini rant about parents who volunteer to do shit for their kids and don't follow through or try to shirk it off on other parents. I promise that you are no busier than anyone else. You just suck way more. #thatsrightisaidyouareasuckyMom #suckitysucksuck
That was fun... word vomit.
See you on the flip side for favorite things...Have a great day everyone!
