Claw machine update:

-nah, he doesn’t hire out
-he blames it on solar flares
-roland had never asked to play one before . Jer indulged on a whim, and won
-roland did not understand how cool it was, since it was the first time.

This dude won two stuffed animals out of a claw machine today. I’m probably going to ask him to try the lottery next ;)

Gpoy Thursday, guess what this skirt fits again edition. I thought I kept it for nostalgia but it turns out that barre3, yoga, and running have me in better shape than pre-Roland.

Missed a quiz.

not pleased. Nothing quite like leaving a screaming, sad child to sit in rage-traffic for 40 minutes with dickweeds on bicycles yelling “Don’t get and drive” while I still through the same light for the 4th time and they weave in an out of traffic and the sidewalk, and then walking in to class at the hour break. 

At least the teacher’s nice. Her words “Well, just don’t worry about this one. You’re on my list of people with a good excuse.”

and yet, this quarter feels more like it’s killing me than usual.

Thanks, daycare

Being ten minutes late for YOUR JOB has thrown me into rush hour traffic. I’ve officially been sitting in traffic for 40 minutes. Also now 40 mins late to work.

It has not yet rained today

I would like a refund please.

Or in other words, it’s going to rain all day.  I love the return of fall, and the way that weather forecast tries to find as many possible ways to say “Yup, still raining” as possible. And that I actually do see a difference in the amount of rain I’m expecting per each of those phrases.

Costumegate 2014, almost done. You can pretty much tell what I was going for, so that’s cool.

"don’t be discouraged - you were successful - he has stuff to wear and you know how to do pajamas!"

mom, on the baddecision2014 costume start. Also gave advise on how to fix all of problematic parts of the pattern.

Moms are the best

-the sleeves and feeties are definitely too small.
- I did an awesome job on that zipper though.
-roland didn’t want to go to daycare this morning
- he screamed and screamed and screamed
- I know terrible twos are a thing but I always worry that something is legit wrong
-even though he likes everyone. And has fun there.
-my face is breaking out like no ones business. Pretty much like a blinky neon sign saying I can’t handle my stress so sugar at least twice a day.
-8 weeks to schedule change

Phase 1: suddenly I don’t think this is going to work as planned anymore.
