Rage, cleaning and crying

Today, I was drowning.

Suffocating.

This is a typical occurrence in January with this family in this house.

Not normal

Have you noticed this about me, that I’m the opposite of normal?

For instance, I am the only person in Canada with a bug bite on her eye. In January.

High points, low points

The high point today was knowing boot camp was on. Today is my third time going to the church basement and exercising with other moms.

The low point was that I woke up at 4:30 am with a headache coming from my neck and shoulder area.

Monday morning nuttiness

We had a thing this morning.

Some parental stress that could have been, and should have been, alleviated.

Welcome to the nuthouse! Is this why you read here? To witness family drama in all its glory?

Well you’ve come to the right place. Plenty of drama and neurosis available free of charge, right here on WoW. πŸ˜›

Love on branches

Imagine a tree, decorated to please.

With glitter and glass,

And shiny trinkets.

Some are made by the hand of a child.

Others, handed down from generations ago.

But the new year beckons, and for some, that means something:

Rink-free evening

Last night, on a Saturday night no less, I was not at a rink.

😢😯😳

If you’re a long time reader here you may understand the significance of this. We’re raising rink rats here, and weekends are usually all about youth sports. And yes, they schedule games on Saturday nights. πŸ™‚

The reason why

I have been out of sorts this week.

Go ahead, roll your eyes. I know what you’re thinking:
