I've fallen victim to the very lazy habit lately of not washing my make-up off before I go to bed. I know that's not good, but I ignore the nighttime voice in my head that tells me to wash my face (hello, it takes like, two minutes!) I use the excuse that I (usually) didn't apply my make-up until the afternoon, so it's not really as long as it seems. How weak is that?
2. I did throw on my new favorite pants to take Annelise to school. They are the destructed boyfriend khakis (currently on clearance for like $17) from Old Navy and are oh so comfy.
3. (Me) "Psst...hey, Sadie, wanna go for a little walk?"
(Me) "Sadie, look at all the trees those nasty bulldozers have knocked down for the new development! Can you believe it?!?!?"
No response from Sadie other than aggressive grass sniffing.
(Me) "Where are all the deer going to go now? This hurts my heart! Everything is going to look so different soon. At least they're leaving a few trees in their wake of destruction."
(Sadie) "I think I smell a rabbit." (Cue more aggressive sniffing and leash yanking.)4. I had a momentary organizing-ish brainstorm the other day when faced with the jumble of jewelry living inside our bedroom armoire. I remembered I had a shoe organizer thingie that I had not put to good use yet (the shame!), so I blew the dust off the cover and opened it up. Even though the pockets are canvas instead of clear, it still works well to organize and store my necklaces and bracelets. It felt so good to make better use of completely unused space (the door to our master bathroom) and arrange my jumbly mess of jewelry so I can see it, remember what I have and use it. These over the door shoe organizers are so versatile! I use one for ribbon in my craft room and two in Annelise's closet for shoes and small/odd toys that don't have a proper home.
5. Hmm...I've got nothing else to share I guess. I was going to rant about being accosted in the car pick-up line yesterday for an impromptu, johnny-on-the-spot, child standing at my car window ready to hop in, first time play date. Excuse me? I know I'm sheltered (and I like it) and Annelise is therefore sheltered (and I like that too), but please correct me if I'm wrong, this did not seem like normal behavior (her, not me, I'm COMPLETELY normal, right?!?!) Yes, this is the same pushy mom, same child and the situation has never been resolved (my fault because I just don't know how to say no, I won't allow my child go home with someone I don't know very well without being rude, so I'm still stalling/avoiding, which I know is just as rude).
Well, I guess I ranted after all.
It's okay if you just want to slap me. Sometimes I want to slap myself.
Now I'm off to vacuum. Or read more Harry Potter. It's a toss up.
Have a fantabulous weekend y'all!
