You guys are so funny!!!
But let me explain.
I have this disease....
I think they call it ADHD. lol
Seriously. My mom said the only way she could keep me "normal" as a kid was to keep me in sports...so I played softball and soccer and was in the band...sometimes I was on TWO soccer teams or softball teams. And when I was a senior in high school (well, I didn't go to my HS my senior year bc I hated my HS, so I enrolled in the Comm. College and ended up graduating with my AA and my HS diploma at the same time), I was a full time student at the Comm. College, worked a 40 hour job at JCPenney, was a Kinder teacher aid every morning until noon, volunteered at a church preschool a few days a week, AND I still had a social life.
So see??? I CAN NOT sit still!! lol.
I think I'm happiest when I'm all stressed out with TONS on my plate, you know? Like, this time last year...In a week's span, I was writing my FINAL paper for my master's class, closing on our house - AND we had to move in because my parents were coming in THREE days to visit...but our house needed EVERY room painted(trust me, it was GROSS!), and we needed new carpet, and new bedroom furniture (trust me...my furniture? my mom dusted when she was a kid, so it had lived it's life...lol) AND my husband was turning 30 that week too, so I was planning his party - ahhh!!! lol
My mind is constantly going and I get anxious if I sit without multitasking on the computer and watching tv AND playing with A...lol. Seriously...I have bitten my nails ever since I can remember...like, I'm talking since I was 7 years old, as my way of being able to stay calm when needed...lol.
this is me..seriously...Hubs asks me all the time if I'm hungry or he can get me something to eat bc my fingers are always in my mouth! I turn it into a positive thing and say that is why my immune system is like a rock! lol
BUT, I will let you know that yesterday, I took a Saturday off....well, from creating anything anyway. I did not create anything new for school...even though I'm into my Seuss theme right now...what can I say? I'm obSEUSSed..lol. I got into in college when I realized there was a Read Across America in March, and 10 years later, I'm still going strong! lol
AND I did not craft or bake anything either!
Instead, my friend came over with her son and he and A played while we caught up...and then A napped and I laid on the couch with B and watched a movie!! Did you hear that Kristin?? I did it!!!
Well, until.....some knocked on my door looking for someone who used to live here a YEAR AGO...which of course made the 100 pound dog bark, which in turn made the 2 year old get up from her nap early...so, I didn't actually get to watch the whole movie, only an hour of it.
Then...because I'm SICK, when A and I were on the front porch, playing in the mulch..lol, I noticed the rocking chairs and porch railing were rather disgusting, (can you say HOLY POLLEN SEASON??), so what did I do??? Went and got a hose and scrub brush and CLEANED my front porch and chairs!!
I'm sick... I know...
It gets worse....
A got all wet and dirty from playing in the hose and dirt...no it's not mud. We don't have mud in FL.
So she wanted to take a bath...well, as I was filling up her bathtub, I noticed it needed to be cleaned...so what did I do??? I started cleaning the bathrooms!!! ALL 3 of them...lol.
So, I promise I'm not trying to be an over achiever on here...lol. I just can NOT stop my mind or my body....until about 9/10:00 at night, and then I crash....hard.
I fear that when I go back to work (on the 27th!), I may disappear for a while...or not show up as often...or not create as often, even though I have ideas coming out the ying yang to create...lol.
I have to admit. I'm quite excited about going back to work. I miss it. Teaching is such a part of who I am. and I LOVE my job, I really do...not every day, of course. But after almost 10 years of teaching, I actually like it more now then I did when I first started....
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being home with my baby girls too, but I KNOW they are in good hands when I'm back at work. Daddy is home 2 out of 3 days and I have a friend who watches them the 3rd day. And I'm home pretty early...usually no later than 3:30 most days, so I have good amount of time to hang out with them after work.
Ok, so since I had a day of rest yesterday, does that mean I can get off the couch now?? lol
I think I'm going to go to Office Depot today to print up some things...with my 25% off coupon! boo-yah!
Hope y'all have a super Sunday!
OH! I have a quick question/survey.... please answer if you have a thought.
What is the difference between Fry's words/phrases Lists and the Dolche words/phrases list?? Why would one prefer one over the other?
My Reading Coach asked me a while ago if I had one of the lists and at the time, I only had the other on hand...and she said she really didn't like that one.
And I see some people in Bloggyland that use mainly one over the other.
