Welcome to Week 2 of my new series, “Confession Friday.”
What have you been up to this week? Here’s what I’ve been doing:
- Remember how I confessed last week that I don’t even know where to start when it comes to cleaning our bedroom, and that I just keep moving things from one side of the room to the other? Well, I’m still doing that.
- I’ve been to 5 doctor appointments for my jaw this week, all with kids in tow, and utilized electronics at every one. I think my chiropractor is becoming family. Oh, and I’m so paranoid about the kids contracting the flu or some weird illness that I have them wash their hands multiple times after entering a doctor’s office. As a side note, I’m normally not a germaphobe (see bullet #7 below), but this flu season seems to be especially bad as pretty much everyone I know has had it whip through their house.
- I had every intention of starting to look through curriculum options for next school year this week, but somehow watching old episodes of ALF with the kids took precedence. Did you know you can watch ALF for free on Hulu and Amazon Prime?
- I still haven’t mopped my floor.
- Our homeschooling group had a Valentine’s party on Wednesday, but we didn’t go mostly because I didn’t want the kids to come home with a bunch of candy and because I was just tired of running around. I know, mean mommy.
- My daughter came up to me while I was deep in thought reading an e-mail from a friend, and said something to me. I said, “Oh really? Cool!” to acknowledge her presence, but she kept standing there. I looked at her and she repeated, “(insert child of mine’s name here) almost broke my neck!” with tears in her eyes. Yeah, I felt pretty bad for that one. Note to self: Look at child before responding next time.
- I was eating one of THESE, and the last bite fell on the floor. I picked it up, and it had a dog hair on it. I plucked off the dog hair and I still ate it. Yep, I’m completely unclean. I should probably mention again, I still haven’t mopped my floor, and I’m not a germaphobe.
- I lost 8 pounds while my jaw was wired shut, and have already gained back 2. I’m liking this whole eating thing.
- I was as excited about our sweet dog’s 10th birthday yesterday as I was about my own child’s birthday. I mean, wouldn’t you be? Look at her pretty new collar!
