I've got the dia-beetus


It’s day 3 of the new school year, here is a direct quote from 6:20 PM today “go to the hospital for what?  For diabetes?”    So, there is a certain small person that lives here, he’s pretty tired and one day his acting skills will rival those offered to the world by Johnny Depp or Christian Bale, and he was having some pain.   While it quickly seemed a lot like a death scene from Game of Thrones, we were having a hard time deciphering if it was real.   We told him if he kept making that strange clicking in his throat and moaning and thrashing we were going to need to take him to the hospital to rule out demon possession.    How he knows about diabetes is a mystery.   Even this can’t dull the shine of this week for me.  

I have dreamed about this week for 5 years!  Seriously, I only had kids so I could give up a great job, get stretch marks, move to a small town in Wisconsin, and finally be a lady who lunches.  Have I missed my kids?   NOPE, nopity nope nope nope.  Don’t get me wrong, I love them to death, but I'm ready for a little solitude.  I casually walk around picking things up off the floor and when I passed by later the floor is still totally clear,  MIRACLES ARE REAL. Plenty of you probably have outside the home jobs and really want to punch me in the nose, I totally get that.   I’m so happy I kind of want to punch myself.  

Eventually, I plan to be productive and useful, but not this week.   This week I am reveling in doing as I please, when I please.  I read a post last week and some of the comments, which led us to moving up bedtime to 6:30, which is totally crazy but only in the crazy smart category. These kids come home a hot mess of emotions, they are practically begging for dinner and quick bedtime. Shout out to my Instant Pot, the only way I can get dinner on the table by 4.  I assume that next week we will be back to our regularly scheduled programming, but in the meantime, Lucas and I have enjoyed more adult time...you know the kind where you sit side by side staring at your devices, couple goals for sure.   

Just so everyone knows how classy we are, one of my boys forgot to wear underwear on the first day.   He spilled hot soup in his lap at lunch and had to change clothes, which is when it dawned on him he didn’t have any on.  When we asked about that he thought it was so silly that I didn’t lay out his undies…..not sure what adult life will look like for this one, totally thought I had him underwear trained.  I’m picturing him completely bottomless in the middle of lunch, hot soup and no underwear sounds like a disaster.  In solidarity I went braless on Wednesday,  of course, I went to Walmart which seemed like the right thing to do.  Clearly, this family shows up ready to party, with or without support.    

I hope all you internet friends had a wonderful week.  In honor of back to school, I’m giving you some homework, comment below on what you are loving so far with the new school year and then head over to the updated resources page and take a look around.
