Meet Brian Emo
I’m not sure the Red Ribbon Week “Say no to drugs” wristband and the “Servant” wristband contribute to his costume idea, but I’m not going to tell him that.
Before I found Sandals, Harvest….church……God…..
I was more crazy than now. Like, WAY more. My children made me want to run away from home. I forgot that for awhile, and I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t able to handle life as a stay-at-home-mom. But reading back throughmy old online journal, I remember how truly intolerable it was for me back then. Something that would make me roll my eyes now, and maybe even elicit a little giggle, used to send me over the edge.
Following are some examples. I posed these in my old online journal back in late 2004. So Dex was just about to turn 3, and Sadie was 5 and a half.
Me: Hi Baby! How was your day?
Me: Did you have fun at school?
Dex: Because why.
Walking from the car to the house after picking Dex up from pre-school...
Dex: Mama, I watch choo-choo movie?
Dex: Thanks! I wanna watch choo-choo movie.
Me: OK Dexter, let’s get in the house and take your shoes off, then you can lay on mama’s bed and watch it.
Dex: OK mama.
Me: *opens door*
Dex: MAMA I WATCH CHOO-CHOO MOVIE NOW?
Me: YES DEXTER, let’s just get your sho…
Dex: I WANNA WATCH CHOO-CHOO MOVIE!@##
Me: Dexter! You CAN watch the choo-choo movie, let’s just get your shoes off first!
Me: *takes one shoe off*
Dex: Now I watch choo-choo movie?
Me: Dexter. Please. Let me get both of your shoes off, then you can go in my bed and watch your choo-choo movie.
Me: *takes other shoe off*
Dex: YAY, CHOO-CHOO MOVIE!!@
Me: Grr…*puts him in the bed, leaves the room to get the choo-choo movie from the living room*
Dex: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I WANNA WATCH MY CHOO-CHOO MOVIE
Me: I. am going. to get. the choo-choo movie. from. the other room, Dexter.
Dex: Den I watch choo-choo movie?
Me: Yes. And then I’m going to hit myself in the head with a hammer.
(Even in my crazy, I didn’t actually say that last sentence)
Between him and Sadie, man…I just…Tom’s going to come home one day and I’m going to be huddled on the floor in the corner of the kitchen, shaking uncontrollably, mumbling unintelligibly, peanut butter in my hair…just…snapped.
That’s it for now. I think you get the idea. The moral of the story is: God makes things better. God and therapy.
None as impressive as this one though:
And then there’s this:
(Morbid. Ingenious and funny, but morbid. Forgive me.)
I should really try to get something done today…
To those who don’t truly know me yet, here is a confession: I have a severe, almost desperate love of Teh Random.
That being said, this is right up my alley.
Denise posted about her busy schedule for the rest of the month, and I could totally relate.
Besides the fact that apparently I can’t post an original thought, it made me think of my own October calendar, and how much my life has changed socially and activity-wise in the past year. Up until then, when people said “there just aren’t enough hours in the day!”, I would think “I just don’t get that. What does that even mean?” I never had “too much to do”.
Now though…now it’s a different story. Besides having a full time job (working from home, but believe it or not that makes things even harder for me) and three kids, I now have a life.
