Little Bit of Crazy

I think I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel today when it comes to patience. Mine is almost gone. I've been looking for things to throw, pillows to scream into or chocolate to shove into my mouth. I think it's hormonal. Women have maybe one week in our menstrual cycles where we're actually feeling normal and this is definitely NOT the week.

Thankfully, as a mother, I've come to realize that patience is like a well that never quite runs dry. Just when I think I can't possibly go another moment without my head exploding, the well replenishes itself and the day is saved.

Thank GOD for that! (However, my left eye hasn't stopped twitching for months.)

My mom sent me this picture which perfectly shows how I felt today. There really should be 3 little birdies instead of just one though. ;)

It was COLD outside today. The sun was shining, but the wind was biting. My feet, clad only in flip flops, were pretty frozen after only a few minutes. The fresh air was nice though. I think even the kitty would have to agree.


There aren't many days left before it will be too cold to do bike riding and tire swinging.
Better enjoy it while you can little guy.

Catie came into the house (after I'd gone in to warm my frozen toes) carrying this little treasure.

It was tucked away under the eaves of the garage and she cleverly used a stick to knock it down - after I had told her not to of course. I sure hope the residents of that nest had already left for the winter! She's excited to take it to school for show and tell.

I've booked another road test for myself but the date is a secret. I don't want to jinx myself ;) If I (God forbid) fail the test again, then maybe it just wasn't meant to be. We shall see I guess.

I'm going to take this evening and do absolutely nothing. I've got a date with the tv and that's good enough for me. It doesn't fart or whine at me - what could be better than that?
