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!
