talk about summer? my evasive little friend…and how a cool breeze is making the vertical blinds sway back and forth as i write…
and how it is cool enough to need blankets. but just stuffy enough so that i need the fan because it helps me feel like i can breathe easier when i am trying to go to sleep.
no, that claustrophobic feeling has nothing to do with my being sandwiched between two snoring forms!
or shall we talk about the great pains of getting one’s eyebrows waxed. i was a first timer. yes, i have always taken the tweezers to my brows, but while sitting in the nail/pedicure/waxing/ salon while half daughter got her nails done… i had this wild urge to indulge my eyebrows with warm, sweet wax!
two. words: OUCH! OUCH!
don’t let those places fool you with their quiet, little private rooms so that seem so…well, quiet and inviting…
i even silenced my cell phone so middle son would stop pestering me for the new netflix password(which is change every so often just because i CAN!!)
after they were done with me i had the sudden urge to call someone for help.
i am probably exaggerating.
well, tomorrow is the big DAY.
the half-daughter graduates. we will feast and be merry.
and summer really begins.
i finished grades and all traces of paperwork/ attendance this afternoon
while intermittently watching back-to-back episodes of the office on netflix. pretending to be “sick” AND busy so as not to be “bothered” by anyone who happened to need anything.
this terrible feeling of couch-potato-ness swept over me and with the help of super fast internet on my laptop it is all too easy to ignore the laundry….which is a GINORMOUS beast as we speak.
but then again it’s summer……..almost anyway.
and next year i’ll have another senior.
and i’ll be super rushed and flustered then too. again.
and so it goes…this cycle of mothering.
do i look like peanut (our hamster) when he is roaming around the house in his see-thru yellow ball? oblivious. lost. confused. overwhelmed. tired…..????
but at least i have GREAT looking eyebrows!!!!
