Today I start another class. This semester should be heavy as I start Programing I and it has a lab. We will have to see how it all goes.
I’ve been reading up a storm. Mostly young adult books as I am trying to catch up and read all of the series Eldest has been addicted to. It is SO nice reading some of that stuff. I like stories for entertainment, what can I say?
I’m a little overwhelmed by the kids lately. I think maybe the two weeks we were on vacation has thrown things for a loop. They are extra needy lately and whiny and sensitive. They crowd around me constantly. They seek me out all the time. The littlest two have snuck into my bed a few times and the Eldest has taken to asking me to sleep with him too. They fight over who gets to sit with me or next to me or whatever.
I’ve been working on my Uberlist– a gigantic to-do list for the entire year. It’s something I used to do and I have more fun with it than resolutions. Mostly because it’s light stuff. But I need to make getting out of the house WITH the kids one of those things. It’s a little bit easier since my best friend got us all annual passes to Jungle Island. Seriously one of the best Christmas presents we have ever gotten. I pack sandwiches and water bottles and all we have to do is pay the $6 parking. It’s about 20 minutes from my house and nice and shady. We love the animals.
I’ve been dealing with some type of Kitchen gremlin. It broke my dishwasher Saturday and my landlord hasn’t sent someone to fix it. And then it opened a bottle of soy sauce in my pantry last night and spilled it all over the place leaving me quite the surprise this morning.
Money is still a bad word as is Child Support Enforcement. We’ll leave it at that.
Then again, it’s worth pointing out that it is REALLY hard to plan any type of anything when money is not reliable.
Stallion interviewed for a promotion last week. Fingers crossed.
One not fluffy book I have read recently was The Power of Habit and that’s had me thinking so much about routines and habits and organization. Which makes me wonder just how many things I say I want are things I really want versus things I think I should want. Does that make any sense?
How has the first half of the new year’s first month been treating you?
