I'm feeling a little down today.
I'm usually full of fun and witty ideas, but I'm just fresh out right now. I could post some pictures, but then I'd have to turn on the other computer where I store them. Since it's about 3 AM, I don't want to make any noise and wake up anyone. I'm not much of a sleeper. I never have been. If I sleep for 3 or 4 hours a night, I'm good all day long. I plan to get up at 7:45 so I've got a few hours. I should be OK.
Actually, I know it sounds silly, but I'm
miserable a little sad that we're taking a break from schoolwork. I LOVE teaching Baby Boy, and while he relishes the breaks, I loathe them. I've never thought of myself much as the teacher. I consider myself more of the "coordinator." I try to provide healthy and usable resources. I like to guide him in the general and preferable direction and see how he "goes" with it. Anyway, this summer, more than any other summer . . . as the junior year approaches . . . I've been thinking that my time with him will be ending soon. He has a very independent spirit and I know he'll want to get away from me go away to college. Shoot, we're already considering community college classes for next year.
I really don't want to be one of those cling-on Moms who doesn't know when enough is enough, but frankly when I'm talking about Baby Boy, enough is never enough and too much is still never enough. He's the light of my existence. I want him to be/feel/know so much better than I ever was/felt/knew growing up. I'm not sure what's going on with me; I guess I'm feeling a little
I haven't been working much lately. Summer months are slow. I guess with us taking a break from school on top of that, I may just have a little too much free time on my hands. Too much free time tends to dampen the mood for me. I like being a busy bee. Of course, when I am busy, I like to complain about it. I'm from a family with two military parents, complaining is what I do best, LOL.
Ooohhh look at me, I think I'm cheering up already.
Anyway, since my post is such a
bore bummer today, I did want to mention that RegularMom has an excellent post on her blog right now regarding healthier eating and a healthier life in general. If you don't stop by her blog often, you should. It's a keeper.
Anyway, thanks for listening. Maybe after
The Young and the Restless some rest, I'll be in better spirits.
Until next time . . .
