EDITED: Thank you all so much for your words of support and of guidance. I’m going to do a LOT of thinking, and I plan on approaching this differently. PapaBear came home today and out of the blue started talking about how we need to address issues in our lives differently than we have in the past because the world,…
It’s cold outside.
... and vast amounts of it:
I’m hoping that posting my day’s To-Do List here will keep me extra motivated to get it done. We’re having some furnace work done tomorrow, so I reeeeaaaaallllly need to be ready for it, but I am only about 2% motivated. I’d rather read a book in the bathtub with a mug of tea and a bowl of frozen berries....
“May whoever steals or alienates this book, or mutilates it, be cut off from the body of the church and held as a thing accursed.”
I am trying to sew something for BabyBear for Christmas... And my freaking sewing machine hates me.
PapaBear and I were recently trying to figure out good Christmas movies we could watch with the kiddos.
Usually, if I remember a dream, it’s along the lines of “we were at a restaurant, but not the kind that serves food, and 4 random people were there, but I didn’t know they were there, and then dinosaurs, but not really”.
Well, I just spent an embarrassing amount of time typing
“bus” into the King Arthur Flour search area to try and find the biscuit recipe I want to make tonight.
I am in charge of doing the dishes at home. PapaBear and I split various tasks around the house, and dishes is one of mine.
I have decided that I want to be able to do a hand-stand.
This is an utterly frivolous post. I have accomplished several things today, despite a decently bad headache and accompanying nap. I have decorated for Halloween. I have tidied up most of the house. I have worked on laundry. I have posted as needed for my online courses.
Stuff I 100% want, and 0% need:
The son of a good friend of mine has opened an Etsy shop selling modded nerf guns.
The recent post about Googling a friend’s new girlfriend has me thinking... when you meet someone new, do you later google them? Why or why not?
I wrote here about my son participating in the school walk-out back in March.
UPdate: I have an appointment with the stylist of a good friend of mine who has super picky taste (she likes the finer things in life, and she does not suffer fools, so her recs are usually really good, and she absolutely swears by this woman). But... The price, y’all. I will be paying TWICE what I’m used to paying.…
So..... I normally shop only at second hand stores. They are at my price-range, and when it turns out that I don’t really like/wear something, I have zero guilt about donating it. Fine.
Yesterday Baby Bear was nervous. I told him that he did not HAVE to participate in the walk-out. his response? “Mom, this is IMPORTANT. I can’t vote, yet, but this is something that I can do!”. So, even if he was the ONLY one, he was still gonna get up, walk out of class, and go sit in the cafeteria.
