I think maybe I used up all my words. Either that or I need some blog post prompts.
I have little of interest to say.
The weather here is gorgeous. I’m actually thinking of running off to JoAnn’s to buy some Easter décor. I always felt that nothing looks more depressing than Easter eggs on sparse branches in the dead of snowy March, but my crocuses are up and daffodils aren’t far behind. There is so much hope at the beginning of spring. I’ve demanded a porch swing for Mother’s Week where I plan to idle the summer away writing and reading and snoozing while my kids wreak havoc on the neighborhood. (I’m a superior mother. That’s why I get an entire Mother’s Week.)
In other news:
Good/ bad news: I had an interview at a real corporatey place where people wear heels and makeup. I thought I did okay, although I may have talked with my hands a bit much, and I might have said, “When I get this job…” I was trying to be confident. I think I came off as slightly unhinged.
There’s nothing wrong with working in pajamas, anyway.
Bad news: John’s traveling again so I’m left to my own devices, which means I’m eating jellybeans late at night while working on my “novel,” which has far too many characters for me to keep track of. Also, they’re mostly very badly behaved. I need to get control over them.
On Saturday, my family intervened on the chaos that is my life and hauled an entire dumpster full of junk out of my basement and garage. Good news: John’s luxury vehicle now fits in the garage. Bad news: Holly no longer has the collection of birthday cards she received when she turned ten.
Bad news: This week, I’m taking Caleb in to radiology because of his “failure to thrive.” I.e., he is the shortest third-grader in the world. Ella is off to get genetic testing on Friday, and Daniel is off to the doctor later today to see if there is good reason for his limping.
My children exhaust me.
Good news: Ben is healthy and cute!
Bad news: Kiah the Wonder Dog ate my jellybeans.
Good news: Kiah the Wonder Dog ate my jellybeans.
And that’s my life in a nutshell. Also, I had a remarkably awesome hair weekend.
