yes, it's true. Things have not been that terrific for me but it's time I stop being a big baby about it. I have some great stuff going on also.
My youngest and I have been having a really good time with our new schedule. We have spent some seriously productive and fun time together. I actually feel as though I am teaching her a thing or two also. I have a terrible habit of making silly errors and I am noticing this lack of attention to detail with her as well. Given this thing we have in common, last night I was able to give her a few pointers so that she is checking her work for more basic things - like spelling ( ! )
Also, I was able to get put on a club list for this weekend. A friend of mine from high school and I are going to see one of my favorite bands. Yes, they really haven't been around much since the 90's but they have a great show. I am really excited.
My middle daughter is going to Sadie Hawkins tomorrow night. (sigh). It's amazing, one minute she is little bundle in my arms and the next she's dating. I have the need to mention that she handles the dating thing light years better than I ever did. I am very proud.
Speaking of proud! My oldest is going to a knowledge bowl tournament on Saturday! She really does not get out much and with all the stuff she struggles with I am always so proud when she puts herself out there! Yay G1!!! You go girl!
And then, that person I am interested in.....I have been wanting to make sure he isn't married. He doesn't wear a ring but I am not naive enough to believe that means anything. So, I have wanted to ask. I'll tell you though, a couple of days ago he gave me an opening I could've driven a truck through. Me, I flipped it into reverse!! I think part of me likes the first part - being interested and all the anticipation and the hope for something - the hope....I am not ready to give that up. It's really nice to feel that skip in my heartbeat when I see him. It's fun and if it gets any more real it could end. Plus if I push it could end really soon. I am hanging on to the good stuff right now.
Oh and a really kind person I work with took the time to notice that I have been seeming down. It really helped me realize how lucky I have it. I have fabulous gals, a good job, working with wonderful people. The only thing that is really holding me back is me allowing myself to let this depression get the better of me. Luckily, I have the tools to work it out.
Yep, I am a lucky Mommy!
