The Times They Are A Changin’


The other day, I got a text from my friend asking, “How was your day?”  It was about a half an hour before I had to get the kids from the bus stop.  You wanna know what I texted her back?  “Peaceful and productive.”

How about that!?!?!?!?  Peaceful AND productive?  I haven’t had a peaceful OR productive day in about seven years!  I mean, REALLY, REALLY productive.  It was awesome.  I had some alone time, I cleaned, I did work for the restaurant, I worked on school.  It. Was. Awesome.

Would you like to know what else has happened?  I don’t yell at the kids like I used to.  We are now at the point where we MISS each other.  We are really enjoying the time that we have together.  Don’t get me wrong…there are still homework struggles and sisterly arguments.  I’m not really all that sure that Becca and Chloe miss EACH OTHER, but at least we’re headed in the right direction.  And when those homework struggles an sisterly arguments happen, I’m much more ready to deal in a calm and orderly fashion.

You know what I’m gonna do?  I’m crossing something off my bucket list.  Number 39?  You’re done.  (Hopefully I don’t have to put that back on the bucket list when summer comes along.)  I’m experiencing parenting Zen.  Aaaaahhhhhhh. I hope you’re having a good weekend, and I’ll have to figure out something out to bitch about on here.

Like this stupid English 102 class.  More of that next time.
