    Friday confessions!

    You know you have them! And remember, you can post "anon"

    I have not been to yoga in 2 weeks

    Went to 7/11 after school yesterday and both my kids had GIGANTIC slurpees. They both melted down before dinner - I blame the sugar & whatever they use for the color!

    I haven't washed my hair since I got it colored and styled last Friday.

    I can't stand the room mom in my daughters 2nd grade class. She is nails on a blackboard.

    Who is next?

    Deep Breath for today--- I'm pulling my kids out of school at 11:30am today so we can head up to the lake and beat the horrible Friday/Holiday weekend traffic. It's only their 3rd day of school...

    Deep Breath from yesterday--- I took complete advantage of my mother by leaving the younger two with her during "witching hour" so I could sit in the sun and watch DD1 play tennis from 4-6.

    I did take her out to lunch prior to my act of selfishness though...

    I have a touch of baby fever. BIL and his wife had a baby this week. (Yay! I'm an aunt for the first time!) No more babies for us, though, and I know that's the right decision. It's just extra hard since my "baby" just started Kindergarten.

    Cris' ADHD meds haven't been working for more than a week now. Homework that should take 5 minutes is taking more than an hour. I finally gave up last night after 45 minutes and wrote a note to the teacher. He had an appointment today with the Dr. to get his meds adjusted. Hoping that a med adjustment will help.

    I have Bronchitis for the 3rd time this year. I'm so tired of not feeling good.

    I have Mount Washmore sitting on my couch. The laundry is clean but I haven't gotten it sorted or put away in 2 weeks. My house looks like a tornado has gone through it. I know it needs to be cleaned I just don't have the energy.

    C's 1st grade room mom wants to make others feel bad for not baking homemade goodies for our turn at snack week. I wish I had time to bake something but I don't so fruit loops, cheez its and granola bars are going to have to do. The teacher is fine with it as long as we send something.

    I have to add one more. I didn't start cooking dinner until 8:15 Saturday night.

    We had a trip to urgent care. Colby cut his finger on a piece of metal. He had to have his finger glued back together. Nothing too serious. I didn't feel like eating out so they are just having a really really late dinner.

    (((hugs))) to you!

    And LOL Mt. Washmore - I have the piles of clean on the bed right now and for 2 nights I have just shoved it back in the basket instead of folding and putting away. I haven't been working out so maybe pawing through it will burn a few calories.

    Hope Cris meds get figured out and that you feel 100% soon!
