Rampant restlessness

August 20, 2008

My brain is wearing me out, and I can’t tell it to shut up.

Well, I could, but I know that it won’t listen.

I feel like I’m on the verge of some big changes in my life, but I’m not sure if I want them, or even really what they are! Confused yet? Me too. Sigh….I’ve been playing mom-hermit here at home for almost 6 months now, and I’m REALLY tired of it.  I’m finally not stressed by my job anymore, so now I can focus on other things, like realizing my fence on one side of my house is now completely overgrown with vines and trees. When I first moved in, I was so careful about ripping out all the weeds and such, planting flowers, etc etc. Now I’ve got rampant wild greenery on one side of my house and the other side is completely bare now that my nice neighbor cut down my trees.

Anyhoo….on another subject, I’ve also been contemplating finally finishing my degree…I’d love to do it online, but I am overwhelmed with all the online programs and choices; and how do I know which ones are decent? I’ve found some at nearby colleges, but none of them offer the degree I want. Maybe I should just buckle down, pick something close to what I want and just get it over with. I’m such a dork, but I miss school, learning new things, and writing!  Hmm, maybe why I’m blogging? Nah, crazy thoughts.

I’ve toyed with the idea of actually attending vs online courses, but I really don’t want to put my son in daycare anymore than I already do…at least he loves the school he’s going to now, and so do I. The previous one he was in for 2 weeks..his last day was the day he got a broken nose! (note to self: blog on the dangers of shitty daycares! lol)

I’m so restless…before I had a boy, this is about the time I would move somewhere new or take a cross-country roadtrip. Damn, I miss that.  Some of the best times of my life were solo driving trips that everybody told me I was crazy to take. =)

Maybe I just need to cut loose….

Yeah, that’s it!

Okay, somebody come entertain me…..



Alright, guess I’ll just have to settle for something fun this weekend.

Like some dancing…maybe even some drinking…or maybe just watching this, which has never yet failed to amuse me:

Over and over.

See how easily amused I am?

So sad.


What to expect…

How much is a babysitter worth to you?

This whole Maddie thing….I know her parents are getting enough grief for it already, but to leave a four year old and 2 two year olds alone while you go have dinner??

 I sometimes can’t even trust my two year old while I take a shower!  Five minutes later he’s taking off down the driveway shouting ‘HEWWO, doggies!’ to the dogs across the street.  

I do understand, I suppose. Sometimes you get to a comfort level and think you know what to expect from little kids/ babies because of what they haven’t done yet..They can’t run yet, or talk yet, or play Mozart on the piano like you want them to.

But that’s exactly when they’ll decide to roll off the bed, waddle out the door, or try to put the cat in the toilet! 

Or, like my son, figure out how to climb up on the counter and dump all the cat food out, then get some permanent markers, open them up, and draw on the walls. Who knew (I think he was just biding his time) he was so ‘talented’.

Anyway,  I hope they find that little girl.  That’s got to be one of the worst things to go through.
