Random Friday Thoughts

At the end of weeks like this one.. I can't help but think "I don't get paid enough for this job!"

The kids ran late this morning and I had to drive them to school. Normally I wouldn't, but this time it was my fault they were late.. I forgot to put all their jeans in the dryer first thing this morning... at 6:30 I suddenly remembered that no one had clean DRY jeans for the day.

For the last two days I've been back on my eating plan (which doesn't include chicken fingers, or mountain dew). I've also walked both days. I'm feeling pretty proud of myself at the moment. Mac is inspiring.

Got a call from my sister-in-law today while I was out of the house. The message said "I'm calling for a chat with Paul. Justin is thinking about going into the Army and I am PANICKED!"
I called Gail back and let her know that Paul doesn't live here anymore, but that I would pass the message along and he'd call tomorrow.

I had a moment of panic myself earlier when I was checking out at the commissary. I opened my purse to pull out my debit card.... and couldn't find it... I searched other spots, checked my pockets... I was concerned that I might have left it at the Post Office (my prior stop), so I figured I'd just use the credit card and run back by the P.O. to pick up my debit. I opened up my wallet to pull out the CC and there was my debit card! I can't believe I actually had put it back where it belonged, as opposed to the quick and convenient front pouch of my purse where I usually have it. I laughed.

I had to pick up Kim after school yesterday. She had a French Club meeting. I was late. She was wet. AND to add insult to injury, she had to pick fall leaves for today for her interior design class. So on the way home, I pulled off near a bunch of trees and we picked leaves in the rain. I'm hoping that action doesn't become a family tradition!

OMG, I can't tell you how many times I have misplaced my ID or debit card. Half the time I put my ID in the visor when I come through the gate & forget to put it back in my purse. he he he At least you didn't lose it.

You don't get paid enough....Mom's never do, until they are older, and then hopefully they will get a great caregiver :) hehehe.
Okay, what am I missing here...Paul doesn't live here anymore? What does that mean, I know I'm just not getting it...:)

Glad your back on plan, although you gotta love those chicken fingers :)

Pooh Hugs,
