Jumping the gun


Tell me I am not the only person who bounced out of bed this morning, got the kids groomed and dressed and fed and then sent them happily off with their father to be dropped off at school….only to have them come trooping back ten minutes later because school doesn’t actually start until tomorrow?
Oh, I am the only one?
(In my defense, it wasn’t that I was so anxious to get rid of them. I was actually bummed vacation was over. I just, somehow, got it in my head that they went back today. On the plus side since I am pregnant I can just blame my addled brain on that.)


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Mary: please don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re not alone in this life schedule fiasco. I chilled the champagne, readied the party favors and psyched myself up for the countdown for this evening….until I realized, New Year’s Eve is celebrated on the evening of December 31st, NOT the evening of January 2nd.
