Okay, so my day wasn’t all bad yesterday. I was in class and a kid at my table said something funny and I had had a runny nose. So I’m laughing and like, two pounds of snot comes out of my nose onto my face/hand. So I go up to my teacher and I’m like, “I need a tissue.” She said, “Why?” I said, “Because I was at my table and Kid at Table said something very funny and yea…” I trailed off and she knew the rest. “Oh!” she said. So I found out where the tissues were and got a couple. Everyone saw me and were like, what happened? And then they saw me wiping off my face and were like, Oh! And started laughing. Not at me but with me, because then I started laughing too! It was hilarious!
Bad Week… May 29, 2008
Today not only am I a retard, but now I’m “Just a loser who can’t make eye contact.” It was said to my face from a boy in school! Gosh people can be completely overall frustrating! I’m not normally like this, trust me. I know because normally in class I’m not struggling to fight off tears!! This is one of the worst weeks I have had this year; too many very harsh put-downs in one week!
Attack of the Zombie Mom May 28, 2008
I’m currently on day #3 of the insomniatic jag. You know it’s bad when you walk in a room and instead of Hey Co-Worker Lady! you hear Hey! You Look Tired! Yeah…that’s when you know you really, really need some shut eye. Just in case you didn’t figure it out before work when you were biting off the head of the Littlest Sister because she was having difficulty spreading peanut butter on her sandwich. Sorry Littlest One, Zombies like first grade heads for breakfast.
So, the girls on the recess playground at The School should be glad I’m not volunteering today! Zombies also like devouring 5th grade SnobbyHeads for afternoon snacks! It is always so relieving to exit that “Mean Girls” phase of life. When I did however, I was naive to the fact that I’d have to go through it again via my kids. Aren’t we supposed to live vicariously through them for good stuff…like all the things we wished we would have been (cheerleader, prom queen, straight A student) NOT all the things we hated the first time around???
Chin up Daughter! You will overcome eventually. At some point these girls run out of nasty energy and figure out that they aren’t any better than anyone else after all. Well, at least they’re supposed to.
In the meantime, remember to pick up all the stuff on the stairs and in the family room before I return from work. Maybe if we don’t feed the Zombie any more children, she will go away.
I get to go to my dad’s house today! We usually go over to my Grandma and Grandpa’s house for dinner, then we go home and go to bed. Things at recess didn’t go much better today, I will tell you that. I was pushed out of the way for someone to get through, then I heard somwone calling me retarted… ugh.
Grrrr… May 27, 2008
Today I started by barely being able to keep my eyes open. I woke up at six fifteen, showered, and got ready for school. I got to school and I was a little more awake, but not by much. Then at recess, some “mean girls” as I call them, were playing four square. They all set up on this one girl to get her out. I heard and said, ‘that’s really mean! They were like, who cares? Then they started going for me too, because I defended the poor girl getting emotionally beaten up! Like my title says, Grrrr…
There isn’t enough caffeine available to help me stay awake today. Day 2 of my latest insomnia jag. Would love to just lay my head down on my keyboard and sleep so hard that I don’t even care if I drool. Instead I’ll pick up the phone and make more phone calls.
Hello People of Earth May 26, 2008
I think my title pretty much says “Hello” to you. I am the Oldest Daughter and I am 11 years old. I recently got headgear and an overbite plate and trust me, they are no fun at all! For the past couple years I have had some trouble accepting my parents divorce. I see my dad Wedensday nights and every other weekend but that’s about it. my mom told me about blogging to help each other understand both sides a little bit better and I guess that’s what Im writing for. And to have loads of fun!!! We can’t forget about fun! Im at Whidbey Island, WA now and it’s not so great because we were going to go fishing and then it started raining so I got mad. And then me and my mom started a blog. And here we are.
