SO done...

Yesterday my daughter and I hit up the playground near our house for some fun. There were already several moms there with their younger children (that hadn't reached school age.) I sat and read for a bit between pushing Ella on the swings, climbing with her, and generally watching her enjoy life.
What I also watched, were some of the other moms, toting their newborns and crawling babes. I remember
that stage well, and BOY, seeing it on these handful of women made my uterus want to shrivel up. Some of these poor ladies had breastmilk stains on their shirts and you could tell they hadn't washed their hair in a while. I do not miss those days, and while our adventures tend to include making it to a bathroom on time rather than diapers, I'll take it!
Sometimes a movie or tv commerical will tug at my heartstrings and make me consider the possibility of maybe thinking about possibly, maybe, possibly, maybe...
But no. I'm done. Sooooooo done:)

This Week

Happy Monday everyone!

Rather than dwell on the fact that it's the first day of the week, I try to spend my Mondays looking ahead at the week. I'm a control freak and I like to know exactly what's coming my way:)

This is the last week of my semester, and I have 2 essays to complete by Friday, May 31st. Unfortunately, these are my focus, and I totally can't procrastinate. One is virtually finished, but the other is a long one about Ophelia from Hamlet and I'm struggling to get through it.

Despite my essay push, I have derby practice on Monday and Thursday nights, and I've missed the last few due to school. I'm really going to try and get there. I love it and it's great stress-relief. Plus my derby sisters always make me feel better no matter the shitty day, week, month or year that I've had!

I spent most of my weekend putting off my essays (bad girl) but on the plus side, I finished listening to the audiobook of The Hunger Games. I was really skeptical about this one, (as I am about any book that gets the level of hype it did) but I gave it the benefit of the doubt, and I'm glad I did. I enjoyed the gore of The Games, muddled through the angsty teenage parts and am left lukewarm about Katniss, but looking forward to reading the next one.

I also began a new book, despite my better judgement (hand slap). I don't usually read anything not related to school while I'm in school, but with only a matter of days left and no assigned reading, I gave in and cracked open the new Dan Brown. I'm only a wee bit in, but already enjoying my poor decision:) I'm so glad to dig into the HUGE pile of TBR books I've been carefully building during this last semester.

The rest of this week will hopefully bring many moments of essay inspiration so I can be done with this semester. This Saturday night I'm heading out to the bar with my life-long friend, Karyn for some well-earned live music. I'll actually get to wear make-up and do my hair! For a full-time mom, that IS a special day.

Hope this week brings you everything you need, too!!

Beginnings...

Hi there!

I've decided to begin a blog to keep myself actively writing through my time off from school (more on that later) and to hopefully get in touch with myself a bit (more on that later, too).
Ready to know all about me? Me too!
Stay tuned!!
