Sigh

on October 13, 2010 - 5:45pm

I'm tired. It's Wednesday and I'm tired. I worked yesterday and we played and ran around the whole day. Then I didn't get to bed on time, and this morning I had to wake up early (5:45am). I had forggoten all of that and was wondering why I could be so tired today....oh yeah.

My last 24 hour shift is Friday. It's going to be strange. I'm not really sad about leaving, I'm ready to get out. I don't know why, but I worry about the kids, they might miss me. Or worse, maybe they won't miss me and they'll forget everything we've ever done and all of the time I've spent with them. I'll miss them, but it isn't as though we'll never see each other again. I have to keep reminding myself of that every 10 minutes, ha.

Obsessed Much?

on October 9, 2010 - 9:57am

Yesterday my mom and I went to the mall to buy some new towels and look at lamps and home decor things. My parents are sort of redecorating the house, something that has't been done in far too long! They need to update! I like going on errands with my mom because it reminds me of when I was really little. My mom didn't work when I was growing up and before I was school age I remember going to the Y in the mornings and going to the grocery store, visiting my cousins and friends to play. We had constant free time really! It just gives me this sense of nostalgia when I run errands with her now.

Thursdays Tired

on September 30, 2010 - 10:24pm

Well, I had started writing this journal entry in the afternoon. I mean I opened a new one up, but then I never got a chance to write it because I fell asleep, almost missed my dinner, but woke up just in time. Now I'm sitting at the kitchen table eating mini Charleston Chews at ten o'clock and pondering the view of the city. The lights are sparkly.

I'm house-sitting again, this time for a month while "my people" are off in Australia, out in the middle of nowhere. They lead such exciting lives. I've been catching up on the tv that I've missed, Glee, House, NCIS. Tonight I watched most of Community, some of 30 Rock and The Office.

I'm Coming Back

on September 29, 2010 - 11:56pm

It's 11:33pm. I should be sleeping, but my circadian rhythm is forever out of wack it seems. Ever since I was a baby I've not been the most regular sleeper. I keep telling myself that some day that will change. The boys and I had a pretty good evening. Ryan did not want to eat his broccoli (I suspect it was because of his OCD), Connor continually threw tantrums about minor issues and Sean insisted on wearing a red silk tie along with a button-down shirt to play outside in the dirt.

Why Am I Leaving?

on September 29, 2010 - 4:48pm

Here it's one of those Fall days that lends itself so well to being photographed. The sun is bright, the air cool, and the colors are so vibrant. Sitting here in my office I look out at the wetlands area behind the house where I've lived for the past 3 1/2 years. I'll be leaving on the 15th of October (I know, a month before Josh's cd is released!) and I'm starting to question my choices. I'm feeling sad. I'm feeling lost. My lack of sleep adds to this, but it's like my body is constantly at the point of breaking down and crying. There's this tired feeling in my eyes. I have so much here in this house. I have space.
