Since plagiarism is in the news (God bless your heart, Melania) I figured that I would straight-up copy another blogger’s survey. I’d give her credit, but where’s the fun in that? I’d much rather just pretend it was my own and argue with anyone that suggests otherwise.
Anyway, let’s get to it…
I am CURRENTLY…
Well, as previously mentioned, I’m in full-swing marathon training mode. Tomorrow I have a long group run of 15 miles that will be the longest I’ve ever run. Nervous? Yes. I also did some strength work last night, but that consisted of some squats while watching “Big Brother”—I hardly doubt that counts.
My daughter eat ¼ slice of pizza. It’s been an hour. Who the hell needs to be FORCED to eat pizza? I could down an entire medium pan pizza by myself in under 20 minutes, but this kid takes a bite every 45 minutes and then complains about it. Sometimes I’m really proud that these kids are mine, but when they begrudgingly eat pizza and refuse raw cookie dough, I just feel sad for their futures.
I’m eating pizza because I’m on a very strict, clean Paleo diet.
I’d also like to publicly call out my local grocery store for running out of my favorite chips. That bag kept me warm at night. My bra feels empty without chip crumbs in it. I find it disgraceful that the shelves were full of vegetables and fresh fruit, but no Cantina Tostitos? Get your shit together, store.
This entry, obviously.
I also finished a (I’d consider) humorous article that I sent out for publication. It’s been five days and I haven’t heard anything from the editor so it looks like we’re back to eating Ramen Noodles and that my half-hearted writing career is a bust.
Being home for the summer. My two rascals cause me premature gray hair, but I love just being here. It’s nice to not have the stress of work in the back of my mind (lesson planning! Grading! Seating charts!) and to just be able to enjoy them. The good AND the bad moments (like when Oliver requested a banana only to smash it on the ground and then step on it).
In a non-emotional segment, I’m also loving the #TrumpYourself website. Listen, I don’t discuss politics publically because it’s a waste of my breath, they’re all corrupt and until they pay off my student loan debt, they can all suck it. BUT! This website made me legit “LOL” yesterday because…why is he yelling at me like that? Why’s he calling me names in front of Oliver? Oh snaps, America is just great.
Well I’m forcefully teaching Caroline letter and number recognition as well as writing them. It’s the most painful experience, ever. HOW DO ELEMENTARY TEACHERS DO THIS?
Me: Caroline, what’s this letter?
Caroline: That’s “K!”
Me: It’s not “K.” Think hard.
Caroline: Hmm…maybe it IS “K!”
Me: It’s NOT “K.” I’m telling you, it’s not “K.” What’s the letter?
Caroline: My name starts with “C!”
Me: True, but you forgot the question. What’s this letter? Focus!
Caroline: That’s letter “K!”
Me: I want to stab myself. We’re done for the day.
We are taking our FIRST family vacation next month. We’re driving six hours east to Connecticut to chill out in a hotel and by the beach. We are going camping next week so booking a real getaway where we don’t need to walk ½ mile to the damn bathroom or sleep with bugs is a way to appease me. He’s solid like that.
Well that was an enjoyable little survey/update, amiright? Happy Friday!
