Note to Self

August 13, 2009

Still unpacking.  Also doing the whole first day of school thing.  So…

  • Your CHILD is in school, not you.  You are an adult.  You don’t need to be afraid of strangers.
  • Well, some strangers, yes.  Probably not most of the moms you’re going to come in contact with though.
  • Just keep telling yourself you’re good enough, you’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like you.  (Thank you, Stuart Smalley, even if you aren’t a trained therapist.)
  • Don’t say that out loud, though, because then people might not like you.  Or else they’ll just be scared of you.  YOU will be the stranger.
  • Regarding the unpacking, rearranging the boxes doesn’t actually mean that there are less of them.  Just a tip.
  • Your fascination with doing laundry (not a euphemism) has to come to an end, and soon.  Stopping by the laundry room door to listen to how quietly the clothes tumble starts to just be weird at some point.
  • It’s probably not as weird as watching the first load.  Don’t tell anyone you did that.  (Dangit.)
  • Speaking of dangit, teach yourself a new word to say in frustration.  Your 5-year-old daughter is saying it with reckless abandon.
  • On the other hand, there are worse things your daughter could be saying with reckless abandon.
  • Speaking of reckless abandon, refer to your previous post and go pay attention to The Husband no matter what the lighting is like.

Have a nice weekend!
