Being a grown up is hard, this is how I have found it…
I don’t know about you, but mom hair and the mom hair chronicles are real for me. It’s a big part of the reason I actually went natural. You know so that when people asked me when I was going to blow dry my hair. (Which happens too much to mention.) I had a reason other than laziness as to why I just haven’t dried my hair. The damage guys.. the damage! Just kidding (I think).
Picture yourself getting a call from a debt collector. First of all ugghhhhh – as if you didn’t know that you haven’t paid that account yet. Except imagine that you didn’t – you actually didn’t forget to pay, or couldn’t pay. You didn’t even make the debt. Picture that debt collector, embarrassing you over the phone about debt and an account that you didn’t even create.
Money you owe that you in fact did not spend.
Things have been quiet around these parts for the last few days. I’ve spent time away from social media unconsciously reflecting. Yes, it was my 31st birthday, and for some reason (please someone tell me I’m not the only one) around my birthday I spend a lot of time thinking.
The never-ending story in my home has come to a gigantic halt! Thank you LG Sapience Top Loader with Smart Inverter. No seriously, I mean it. There’s this meme that I always laughed at, the never-ending story as a child and a picture of “The NeverEnding Story” and then next to it a picture of a laundry basket eluding to the adult version. It was more true for me than I could explain and I’m sure many moms can agree. (more…)
This last week in our home has been tough. School started, routines aren’t exactly set in stone and we are still finding our feet. Can someone please inform the teachers that? My child has been getting REAL homework. By this I mean we are working every single day till 8pm. I have discovered after much screaming, hair pulling, a few sobs, that my child is distracted. Aren’t we all? I hear you, but easily, very easily distracted is more what I mean. Struggling to focus actually. Sadly to top it all off – I’ve been making it worse.
