Too much time on my hands

by statia on May 24, 2010

Dudes.  Last week was the Mini’s last day of school until camp starts.  I’m very sad about this for two three reasons.  One of course is the fact that he is now going to be home all day, every day, until June 21st, and lately, he’s been a petulant little shit.   I am not sure what I’m going to do with him until then.  We do a lot of playing outside, which he loves, but there’s only so much pushing a toddler around in her new pink tricycle I can do before I go insane.  Also?  I hate sweating.  Sweating just makes me stabby.

Two, The Mini’s teacher?  Full of the awesome.  I know I’ve probably said this before, and she’ll probably read this and be all, “yeah, I’m totally bad ass.”  And I’m totally feeding her ego here, and I don’t even HAVE to anymore, because she’s not his teacher, so I don’t even have to try to be teachers pet, but really, she will probably forever be my favorite teacher of his.   I didn’t want his last day to arrive.   He had so much fun and grew so much.   She understood his issues and worked with him.

Three, I barely have time to sit in front of the computer these days, because I have two kids running in opposite directions.  LG is slowly learning to walk, but they are both very demanding of my attention during the day.    By the time bedtime rolls around, all I end up doing is fucking off on facebook playing stupid games.  It’s a total waste of my time, but I need to just shut my brain down.

So there it is.  In the meantime, has anyone else noticed that spammers are starting to get more creative with their comments?  Like they try and pretend it’s actually a comment and that they’re adding something to the conversation? Even though it a. has NOTHING to do with the conversation, and b. it’s on an entry from 1978.   Just who do you think you’re fooling, spammers?

Good teachers don’t get nearly enough credit. Or money.

I totally understand the stress of two kids running in opposite directions. My girls are 7 and 3 and while the three year old has only been walking for a year, in that year, I’ve slowly lost my mind.

I hope camp for the Mini gives you a much needed break.

And yay for awesome teachers. My older daughter suffers from dibilitating shyness. Both her kindergarten teacher and her first grade teachers have been amazing at bringing her out of her shell.

I haven’t seen much creativity with spammers from my end, most of the time it’s a derivative of “nice post”, or something totally inane or illegible due to grammar issues. I’m pretty quick to catch on and will mercilessly mark them as spam in a heartbeat if I have the slightest inkling that they’re polluting my blog.
