Guess what I get to do with no school work due?  I’m actually going to take a little nap…..or pretend I am. I’m going to at least rest.  
It’s been a decently relaxing day. Gym, kids, cutting hair, dying hair, now curled up for a bit.  
Going salsa dancing tonight with my girlfriends, I’m excited about that.  I don’t have shoes to dance in….that’s been confusing for me.  Do I just wear jeans and shirt so I can wear my tennis shoes, because I know I can at least salsa in those?  Then I  think no one wears tennis shoes to go out dancing.  The shoes I wore in DC, I borrowed from a friend, bit don’t think I want to drive out to get them, and not sure I would want to salsa in those.  But more exciting is that I’m going to go salsa dancing tonight!!!  Shoes will figure themselves out later.

No nap

How dare I think I have time for a nap?  The dog jumping on me is what lost it for me.  And I’m not a big napper anyways, but sometimes if I can get that perfect moment of lying on the couch with pointless noise on the TV and find that place to drift away…it’s perfect.  I think it comes from memories of survival naps as new mom and sleepless nights and the only chance of grabbing a moment of sleep was on the couch for a moment, maybe not, maybe the couch is just a magical nap place even without the Mom survival naps. 

I need to get moving.  I’m supposed to go get boots to go with my costume this weekend.  I’m so excited for this Halloween party!!!  

I really need to update my calendar on my phone.  I keep getting updates for things that used to happen, but don’t anymore…such as daughter’s gymnastics reminders, last trimester’s preassess times.  On that note, I need to clean up my phone all together.  Some how (I think kids) I have an odd amount of apps that I haven’t seen before. 

I just started Labyrinth.  I really shouldn’t have, because I needed a shower more. Wait, I can bathe and take it with me on my phone while I bathe and get ready.  How amazing are phones today?  I can’t believe how spoiled I am with technology. 

I don’t think you know how amazing you are.  Do you know that anytime I have good news, such as passing a test….or bad news, such( as with daughter last week, you come out of the woodworks and share your kind words and support.  Also watching other’s through their trials and triumphs in life and how much you are there for them.  This place just blows my mind. I know I haven’t been able to come and spend as much time around each of your places as I would like, but just know that it’s amazing to know how much you care!

I like to make phone calls while I’m driving to catch up with people.  (Also keeps me from texting as much…yes…I’m working on not doing that.) I was talking to my sister last night and she went to the ER with one of her foster babies to find out what is wrong with them.  When she was there the nurse said about my sister…talking to the baby….I think she is lying…I don’t think there is anything wrong with you…I just think she doesn’t want you, which is sad, because I would take you and keep you.  I am shock my sister isn’t in jail this morning.  And she said some pretty nasty other things to my sister.  I was shocked she didn’t punch her out (my sister is pretty quick tempered).  She has two infants in foster care right now and just is exhausted and blamed/thanked her sleep deprivation for not hurting the nurse.  

It was interesting, she moved onto the next conversation…well, on the note of real shitty people….I automatically asked, what did Mom do this time?  Apparently my Mom is giving her shit for getting a babysitter, because she had to go to court of for the sake of one of the foster kids.  My Mom is going on and on about how she did it all on her own with out any help.  (hmmmm…my mom gave us up to family on multiple occasions, she gave up custody to my father in the 70s, she was never around…interesting how some people choose to look at their past) She just doesn’t like babies either, which I know babies aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but she has really been giving my sister a lot of hell, while my sister really just needs some support.  

I know I have a bit more tendency to ramble while over exhausted. I also know emotions are a bit more on edge during this time, so I am doing my best to keep in the best spirits.  I really need to go and de-stinkify myself. 

Hope you are having an amazing day!
