things i’ve done wrong this week…

December 3rd, 2009

1) worried too much about surgery

2) took the kids to the bar instead of doing homework with them and… whatever else we should have done instead of going to the bar. a craft project or something? who knows. and ok, we did do some homework at the bar, but still had to study for geometry quiz when we got home. She’s in fifth grade. I didn’t have any geometry quizzes til I was a sophomore in high school. That’s what happens when your art teacher is also your math teacher. (God rest your soul, Mr. Art M., you were the best damn teacher. i loved you a bunch and you knew it.)

3) Abandoned the kids and slept a lot. (They stay up, on average, one-two hours later than I do, lately.) (Bright note: they’ve been much grouchier than i this week for a change, hahahaha.) Wacky Girl, when I told her I was going to bed, “Yeah, I’ll just be up all night studying for this quiz, go right ahead.” So I stayed up with her. She flew through the pages, “Hey — I know all of this!” Girl is wicked good at math.

4) ate the salad that was intended for the guinea pig.

5) didn’t clean either fish tank (fed them, though)

6) did not pay bills yet.

7) forgot to drink water all week and got extremely dehydrated. wine and coffee do not count as rehydration.

8) made steve do all the chores in the morning (breakfast, lunches, getting kids out the door). typical.

things i’ve done right this week…

1) worked out a couple times

2) my hair looks amazing. cuz i washed it and put it into a ponytail, that’s why. hahahahahaha.

3) i started the laundry.

You? Am I the only one beating myself up around here?

have a fantastic whatever day this is.



ps screw this list. i’ve done a ton of things right this week. the end.

    Max has a field trip today at school that I completely, utterly forgot about until about 10 minutes ago. (Fortunately he has everything he needs to go but we ALWAYS talk about field trips before he heads off to one.) And I feel incompetent and shitty.

    On the bright side, I put the flannel sheets on both beds this morning because it is COLD in South Texas. Hooray!

  2. Wacky Mommy says

    ha! i forgot about one of my son’s field trips last month until the exact moment we walked up to the school. I have never done that before. that’s what 2nd grade will get you — a worthless mommy.

    his sister had a field trip the same day, which i think i halfway remembered? me: “Really? Huh.”

    flannel sheets are excellent.

    I have done a bunch of aprons. Apparently there is still a house surrounding me, as I am not very cold, so it didn’t collapse without my attention. I noticed hubs half-heartedly do some dishes the other day, but as long as he feeds me I don’t pay much attention.

    Take your kids to a bar day, that should be an institution.

    Oh, ponytails rock. I need a hairdryer. Wet ponytails don’t rock so much. I am too tired to think of what I did right or wrong this week!

  5. wacky cousin says

    This week, I did very well. Which is a refreshing change of pace for me. I got a dresser from my Grandpa’s house, and it’s all in place with good-smelling things in the drawers to get ready for clothes to go in it. I got the front window measured so I can get my cool drapes from mom up around the same time the weather goes all freezing, and my child got the 2nd half of the H1N1 shot. Work got accomplished at my desk, I paid my bills, and I made dinner EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. I even worked out a couple of times, and I am NOT about working out.

    But don’t hate me, because it’s the first time I’ve had a good week this year. Honestly. I’m just glad I’m able to get out of bed in the morning. My room is all stuff that came from my grandmothers right now, it’s comforting and disturbing all at the same time.

    PS Do you think I can wash my quilt just in the regular old washing machine? My dog is a submission pee-er, and Chance chased her onto my bed, and actually growled at her until she weed. Bleh.

    I love you!

    I love this list… especially because by the end, you realized that it really wasn’t all wrong! In fact, only thing wrong was that you didn’t have a glass of wine (or water – rehydration and all) with me. ;-)
