Monday’s Aren’t For Wimps

I probably need to check my wimp meter because I feel like Monday has kicked my behind this week.  LOL. 

Started with crazy dreams (in the night, yes, because I—contrary to my daughter’s firm convictions—do not get to go back to bed and sleep all day every day while the kids are in school), and they were crazy enough that I don’t care to attempt to remember them.  That’s what I get for having Ultimate Oatmeal Cookie ice cream at the local ice cream shop after church last night.  LOL. 

Then I checked off one of my to-do list items, only to find that doing so added another 5 things to my to-do list.  LOL…I hate it when that happens. 

Haven’t been able to shake my headache all day, then added a bellyache to the list.  And then, afternoon homework…which always wears me out, but there’s not really time for a nap.

BUT….it’s all good. 

On the bright side, I’m officially a student again (except my first classes aren’t until January), my placement scores from a couple years ago are still valid…and my—pathetically wimpy around populated areas that I’m unfamiliar with—own self managed to find my way onto campus, then across campus, and into registration without any panic attacks or cries for mom (lol…okay, I’m exaggerating about my helplessness, but not so much exaggeration about my comfort level because I really do dislike crowds).  Ha…the diapers commercial just popped into my head: “I’m a big kid now.”  Sorry…random is sort of my thing, in case you didn’t know. 

Where was I going again? 

OH yes, that bright side.  Crock-pots…they are very much not from the dark side.  They make Monday’s so much more wonderful.  And also fragrant. It’s hard not to get distracted when smelling barbeque chicken in the crockpot all afternoon. I made—sniff sniff….OHHH…I’m so hungry….oh, uh…what was I saying again??  LOL…Oh yeah, I was saying I made it last week, too, but this week, we’re putting it on buns.  Easy and fast…and fragrant.  Did I mention that my mouth keeps watering?  Quite distracting.

Also improved is my mood…strange for a Monday (maybe it’s the smell of barbeque…lol).  Yesterday I had a terrible case of the grumpy.  Today I understood a little better WHY that was, but it didn’t make me feel any better yesterday.  LOL.  Do you ever get grumpy BECAUSE you’re grumpy?  It’s a vicious cycle.  I’m happy I’ve moved on from there…and I’m pretty sure my kids and hubby feel the same way. 

Random subject change: I wanna try this recipe…I big fat pink puffy heart candy corn.

Ramble, ramble, ramble.  It’s now shred time for that chicken…my mouth watered again (not sure if it was looking at the above picture or smelling the chicken…*sigh*…I love food)

Hasta la vista, baby. 


  1. you're going back to college? why haven't i heard about this? i mean before now. ;) i want details. :)

    and i had forgotten that you love candy corn. you can have my share of that stuff. i think i'll stick with reese's pieces. :)

  2. LOL, Kelly, well, the deal is, I haven't said very much about it because I was afraid I'd chicken out and I figured if I didn't say anything, and I chickened, no one would know...LOL. I'm sure I'll be blogging more about my experience...this reply comment is getting too long. LOL.
