I am excited to join Elaine from Miss Elaineous Life for Old School Blogging again this month. Elaine is teaming up with Angela from Jumping With My Fingers Crossed and they have given us a series of sentence beginnings and it is up to us to finish them.
I am alone in the house. That used to never happen; now, since the boys are both in school it happens more than I could have imagined.
I wonder about what kind of men they will be.
I hear the microwave heating up my 4 day old leftover Chinese food.
I see my new camera sitting in its bag. I want to practice taking more pictures today.
I want to learn more about photography.
I am hungry.
I pretend that there are no calories in Chinese food. Especially in egg rolls.
I feel like that may be why my capri pants are just a touch tighter this year.
I touch the keys and let the words flow out. This is my favourite time to write, when the house is still and quiet. Except now the microwave is beeping – my lunch is ready.
I worry often.
I cry whenever anyone else is crying. Except my children – I am mostly immune to their tears as they make their cases as to why I shouldn’t take their screen time for a consequence.
I am sometimes a mean mom, according to my 10 year-old.
I understand that “mean mom” is going to be part of my job description for the foreseeable future. I hope to eke in “fun mom” and “embarrassing mom,” too.
I say too much sometimes. Other times I can’t find the words and I don’t say enough.
I dream and I don’t remember.
I try every day.
I hope I succeed sometimes.
I am still hungry because I have been writing this post instead of eating four-day-old leftover Chinese food. I hope it doesn’t make me sick.
