I'm Fine, How Are You?

April 02, 2007 | Category: In My Life

I woke up this morning with a to-do list as long as my arm. A headache. And a bad attitude.

Moving to Canada? Is killing me with details. And this could go on for as long as two years.

Trying to climb on top of it all, I let Bear watch some Power Rangers while I made calls and answered emails, and it was the wrong wrong wrong damn thing to do. Television during the day is like pouring some kind of anti-happy poison down his throat. Fine when he's sick but otherwise? A recipe for an U-G-L-Y mood.

Sure enough, Bear got snottier and snottier over about 90 minutes. At one point, screaming at me to bring him popcorn and refusing to do chores or come study when I turned it off. We ended up arguing and as I type this, he is in a serious time-out.

It's 2:30PM and I want to go to bed and pull the covers over my head.

So, while we wait for the dear child I love to return to me and the Advil to kick in... here are some pictures.

1. This was "Corporate Mommy's" inbox just a couple of hours ago. I love checking it. The joy of these emails - even when I am so so so very behind in responding - keeps me going sometimes:

2. This is the picture I had in my mind when I told CD yesterday at Lowe's that yes, thank you, we should wait to put in our annuals. It has snowed every April I can remember...

3. This is Bear after Saturday morning's Easter Egg hunt. That boy LOVES him some Easter Egg hunting!

4. I was looking through some pictures as I compiled a batch for this year's family calendar, and I came across this one from Paris. It made my heart flip-flop. After a quarter of my life, he still makes my heart flip-flop. I practically fall to my knees in gratitude on a daily basis that we survived those last few years of his recovery.

What is it about a little tv time during the day & it bringing out the grumpies?? Our son has the same issue. Once he gets a little of those tv waves into his brain, he forgets the rules, manners & demands everything.

Why are you doing Easter a week early, and on a Saturday?
Hurry up and get here to Canada. I can't promise a snow-free April (depending on where you head) but I can promise good health care!

Making your heart flip flop after all of these years is a very good thing. You're lucky to still get that feeling.

Speaking of snow, we're about to get 4-6 inches in the next day or so. Mother Nature is being an asshole if you ask me. ;)

Bit jealous over your inbox as my comments area is full of cobwebs. Spring cleaning needs to be done all around... still lost in a winter state of mind though.
