Rory at Time Out For Mom has a Coffee Chat every Tuesday. I do believe this is my first time joining in. This week’s topic is “Random.”
Easy enough. I just spew whatever comes to mind then. So if ya don’t wanna stay, you may be excused – provided you come back tomorrow cuz it’ll be wordless Wednesday and you won’t have to put up with my blabbing as much then….
If you’ve decided to stay…..yay! This is kinda like a stream of consciousness exercise back when I was in high school.
Huh. High school. That was a fun four years. I miss volleyball. Wish I could play again….but if I get the chance anytime soon, I’d probably die from being out of shape. Yep. Definitely would die. I don’t even know if I could do a proper serve or set anymore! Sigh. I kinda feel sorry for myself.
Oh well. What’s a SAHM of 3 to do?
My eldest said the other day…
“Someday, I want to either be a nun….or….just stay home after I finish college and get married.”
I replied, “What? You know, you still do have to work and make some money in the beginning. You can’t just get married and expect to not work. There’s stuff you have to pay for! And anyway, you are still too young to be thinking about that stuff.”
To which eldest responded, “Oh. Well, I could work. Maybe I’ll become a teacher like you. Do you think so?”
“I don’t know. Maybe. Anyway, as you get older, you will know more of what’s out there and know what it takes to have those jobs. You’ll find out someday what your vocation will be.” so says I.
Then eldest said, “Oh. Ok. I understand, mom.”
And did I tell y’all that eldest is only seven? Seven!
This parenting stuff just keeps throwing curve balls everyday. How will I ever survive her teen years???
Also, as you may well know, I’ve been trying to get organized around here. I even asked my mommy dearest to come over for two days so she can handle the
animals kids while the hubs and I cleaned.
Two days later…..all the laundry’s been washed and put away, the hallway cupboards are organized, and the “school” area’s totally user-friendly!
Check out this before and after pic:
Awesomesauce, right? Now if I could just get the garage to look the same way…….or maybe I’ll just leave that part of the house to the hubs? Good idea.
Anywho, leave some comment love, write your own randomness, and share!
