You open your refrigerator and see the carton of milk only to find 3 drops left at the bottom. Maybe it was your favorite bag of chips with just a few crumbs left. You had a craving. You made your way into the kitchen. The container supposedly holding what will satisfy your craving is there. You see it but inside you find there’s nothing left. No way of satisfying what you had a taste for. Continue reading
While sorting through the last mountain of paperwork on my dining room table I rip up a few things into a trashcan beside me.
Aaron: “Are you switching to T-Mobile?”
Me: “No. Why?”
Aaron: “Well people that do get to make that sound.”
(Tearing up higher bills…I’m guessing he’s referring to an advertisement???)
Sir…you’re six. Please resume putting together your 135 piece Marvel Avengers puzzle…also on the dining room table.
Have a good night!
Aaron yells out from the bathroom….he’s on the toilet….
Aaron: Mama! Come here!
Me: What’s wrong?

6:29 Sprint into daycare. Manager says the boys are still in the afterschool clubhouse. Sprint outside and barge into the clubhouse.
6:31 Every employee that works for the daycare is sitting down waiting for their staff meeting to begin.
6:32 Aaron is throwing a temper tantrum about the cookies and lemonade he can’t have. This snack was for the staff meeting. Continue reading
Sitting at my desk I was desperately trying to complete a report that was fairly difficult. I started a new position at work and I’m learning/working so it’s taking me longer to get through assignments.
While pulling my hair out on this alone Aaron asked me to fix “Abby”. Abby is a stuffed…well used to be stuffed…bunny rabbit. Isaiah tried to throw it in the trash earlier because the stuffing was spewing out of its neck. Continue reading
