Self-proclaimed high-maintenance

I have never been a high-mainenance kind of gal.

What do you think my next sentence will say? 😂😂😂

Living with teens at the end of the school year

I need to get this off my chest. I know I’m not the only one who has these challenges, and I hesitated if I should bother blogging about it all all. But you know what? I need some positive vibes here from you, or at least some commiserating… 🙄

So allow me to entertain you with a funny story first, and an exasperating one second.

Tame city wildlife and the ensuing chaos when they enter the house

Yesterday I came home from somewhere and the husband was downstairs stomping around, slamming doors and swearing under his breath.

?

“Freaking squirrel,” he said.

Sigh.

The clever nicknames dating women give to men

I have recently discovered some blogs of women who date and then they talk about it on the internet.

Some of them are very clever and call their dates all these imaginative nicknames (to protect their privacy). I actually admire their creativity – not sure if I would have been quite that colourful back in my single days had the internet been a household item at the time. 😀

But let’s see. Perhaps I can come up with some nicknames for some of these guys from my past, even though in some cases, I didn’t actually go out with them despite their interest in me. (I was shy, introverted and suspicious of most men, due to some experiences I had while working as a flight attendant, my previous job.) I won’t name them all, but I’ll name the three that stand out the most from my four years working at a simulator training facility.

Wrong place right time

Last night I drove my kid to the wrong venue for practice.

Boo. 🙂

(Just bear with me here…I may sound like I’m complaining but really, I’m just anecdote-ing my life as it unfolds because one day when I’m all alone and old and probably depressed I’ll re-read this drivel and it will help me remember that I went through all these adventures as a parent of kids in sports during the age of the internet.)

Another mayhem Monday

This morning I woke to some uncertainties as to whether or not I will be driving to some obscure part of town through massive amounts of construction for a baseball game the girl child was scheduled to play in later this evening.

I originally booked her off. Then I got an email from the coach asking if she was available.

I looked at the weather and saw that most of the week will be rainy and figured, why not. I’ll find a way to juggle it. It may be the only game we’ll get in this week.

So I sucked it up, went through anxiety mode to prepare for my trip by attacking google maps every which way in order to find the easiest/fastest route to get there without getting lost or losing my mind and finally calmed down enough to tackle the rest of my day. 🙄
