A Tumbling Torrent of Thoughts On Tuesday

It’s Tuesday already. I need to know where the days keep sneaking off to. The summer heat has finally hit here and I’ve spent the last week hiding inside trying to stay focused. About all I’ve managed to do is become addicted to some new tv shows (thanks to Mr. Vixen).

My lackluster approach to blogging isn’t working well, is it? It isn’t that I don’t want to post. It’s mostly I don’t have anything to say. Or too much to say. I can’t really decide. It may be the heat is affecting my brain function.

Bullets! How about bullets?! They always manage to distract me a bit.

  • Ladybug starts kindergarten tomorrow morning. I have issues. Mostly with how it’s possible that she is old enough to attend school. She qualified for a wonderful Special Day Program, due to her special needs. That is the best thing that could have happened for her and her mommy. Nanny is having great difficulty with the idea of letting her go. I understand that. Tomorrow morning I will head over there, watch her get on the bus, hand out tissues to wipe our tears and then follow her bus to school (seriously. we have to make sure everything is good when she gets there. nothing wrong with that, right?)
  • After 585 days of being unemployed; one year 7 months and 8 days of resumes and applications, someone actually called me about a job. I have to say it sounds like it is the perfect match for my skills and experience. I have an interview, tomorrow morning.  I am beyond excited, which probably means I won’t get it. But I am going to try my damndest.
  • Butterball turned 3 yesterday, which also seems entirely impossible.
  • Sunday before last we celebrated what would have been Collin’s second birthday. I wish I could say this stuff gets easier, but the jury is still out on that one.
  • I may have mentioned (several hundred times), we babysit RolyPoly 3 or 4 days a week. It is so rewarding. I will have to admit my body had forgotten how hard it is to care for a baby, but in spite of the aches and pains, the joy of being with him all day is all consuming. And he is four and a half months old now (and 17 pounds)! Note the recurring time-passing-too-swiftly thing???!?!
  • I have to go color my hair and shop for an interview business professional outfit. It’s been a long time since I had to dress up for work. We had a very business casual thing going for the last 10 years….


WW~Two Boys, Two Dads…Everything Is A Competition


In Which I Stop Worrying About Having To Visit The Welfare Office


  1. Good luck! Wow, I can’t believe how quickly the kids are growing up! Yes, you are so lucky to get to sniff that baby’s head so often.

  2. Oh my… so much happening tomorrow. I’ll pray for the transitions and that all will go well with Ladybugs school experience and for the grown-ups that have to watch her go into the scary world. I’ll pray, too, about that job interview!

  3. Good luck to you and Ladybug tomorrow!

  4. Good luck with that interview!

  5. Mar

    I want my blogging ability back as well. I have lots to say but just don’t know how to say it!

    I can’t believe all your babies are so big. I hate to tell Nanny but I think the first day of high school was way worse than the first day of kindergarten for me (for Noodle).

    I’ve got everything crossed that will, that all goes well with the interview. I also am no longer the queen b at the new place and miss wearing what I wanted when I wanted.

  6. My very best wishes and prayers. Woman you deserve this more than anyone I know. Be confident, look in their eyes, and if they ask you what your greatest fault or weakness is try to have an answer ready. Kinda like I know I can worker harder at___________. It’s a stupid ass question and I hope they don’t ask it of you. HUGS!

  7. Sending u wishes for all to go your way. I have not been blogging mush. Silence has been with me for a while now. But I was thinking about u today. And thought I would stop in. Big hug

  8. Awww, first day of Kindergarden. How cute.

  9. Love the bullets! I’m having trouble finding thins to write about too!
