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. 😛

The thing about the ice cream

Today, I went to a grocery story to load up for the next few days. It wasn’t until I was just about to pull out of the parking lot when I thought I’d better check my phone. I had this nagging feeling I was missing something.

Sure enough, there was a text from the girl child.

As my world continues to turn

You know what I did this morning?

I slept in. 😲

And guess what: the world didn’t come to a screeching halt. 😯

(The letter was generic, and not specifically addressed to us. It was sent out en masse to all the parents whose teens go to that school.)

There is something going around though that has me feeling a little under the weather. Partly, it’s because my back is experiencing spasms that have locked me up tight. Honestly, sleeping is what I want to do most, but I can’t seem to find a position that isn’t painful.

Go ahead, hit me with more

Warning. rant ahead.

This *hit me* is a stupid expression that has become politically incorrect in the social climes of today but I can’t think of a better way to say what’s on my mind.

Life happened. Again.

Sigh…

The struggle is (still) real

It’s interesting/annoying/exasperating just how much work it takes to be ‘in the background’ of family and parenting life.

Do you know what I mean by that?
