What a wild and wacky week here! I've totally burnt the candle at both ends to a little stub.
Bet you thought it was something profound huh? Nope just me having a day of wonder...well morning of wonder.
It's a frosty Saturday morning and I'm wondering how I'm going to get everything accomplished I want to by the end of the day - when I have a nasty head cold thing happening & want to stay in bed and drink tea all day
It's a day of wonder because I wonder how to help the youngest with a friend situation with a particularly 'high stress - snaps at everyone center of attention - hero of all complex- mom" which causes her child to behave in a Snarkey middle school way and alienate friends by picking on them then crying victim. I wonder how I can teach my youngest to be resilient and not get sucked into the early teen drama causing poo-flinging fest it has become. I want my youngest to be strong and secure in doing the right thing so others don't get hurt.
It's a day of wonder because I have NO idea about Christmas shopping this year - all the bargains ads are coming and are flooding my email box - it is info overload! I should have been more prepared this year - that was my plan....after last year.
It's a day of wonder since I got the oldest's school winter sports schedule and every weekend there is a competition we have a conflict. I'm wondering how to make that all work out, transportation-wise and parental support-wise, we could be calling on grand parents to be our substitutes. Also wondering if the coach will bench him for missing Thursday night practice because he has the winter concert for his school concert band class (graded concert). Last year all band kids were benched the weekend following the concert - even though he denied it - no band kids competed that day - the faculty advisor for the team didn't see a problem, skipping is skipping - not a big performing arts supporter I guess.
It's a day of wonder because there wasn't enough 'quiet time' in the week and I get this way when things get wacky & busy. Don't we all?
