At least here it is!
I'm at work and feeling a little bit grouchy, it's been gloomy and raining on and off since last Thursday.
Not sure if I mentioned it here, but I'm having an engagement celebration/40th bday party next month (for SO) , and I rented out a bar and invited 60 people. I am having such anxiety about it- no one coming, everyone coming. I know it will probably be fine, but both of my parents are coming and they still hate each other even though they've been divorced for more than 30 years.

I listed DS' swingset last night & we sold it. It took over an hour to get it disassembled though. The bolts ended up seizing for some reason so that was unexpected but at least it's gone. Thankfully the people didn't change their mind halfway or some bs. LOL that would have pissed me off because DH was doing all the damn work. Usually people post that you come & disassemble but to prevent problems, we just do it to get it the eff out asap. Now to decide on a new one.
I counted the number of school days left. 20. Twenty days until entertainment and active learning are all on me. DD will be in day camp part time again this year. It gives me a break during each week and makes the 12 weeks of summer not drag. I'm just not much of a fun mom and don't want her to be bored. She's much more active now than she was in the toddler/preschool years.
when do you guys start school? We're at about 30 something left.

I almost forgot it was Tuesday. Therapy Tuesday. I often wonder when we'll be at the point that DS won't need it anymore or if we'll ever be at that point. le sigh Hopefully I don't develop a headache. It's usually the case.

DS starts soccer on Thursday. I'm kinda sad his bff won't be in the program he's in. At the birthday party we went to his dad clarified that he'll be doing games now, we're still doing the instructional program just to take it easy on our schedule & just on him. We had planned on starting him on games in the fall so we had told him before that "L" would be at soccer before & he was super excited so hopefully he forgot we said that. His parents speak pretty fluent English (they're dutch) but they're not too familiar with all the programs & such so I'm sure he just thought we meant the same thing. Womp womp :/ sometimes when we go, the teams are on the next field over doing games so maybe he'll still see him before or afterwards & get a chance to play on the playground together or something. I guess we'll see.
helenahhandbasket I can relate so much. I get anxiety about planning anything like that. When I was wedding planning I was a wreck sometimes, especially chasing people down to see if they were coming or not.
Yes tell me about it. I know it's dumb but my stomach knots up everyone I think about it.
Yes, some have but I think I'm going to have to chase some invitees down the week before.
This always happens when we have parties. Instead of chasing the people down though, I just assume the are coming and make sure there is enough food. If they don't show, then the worst that happens is that we spent a little extra money and we have leftovers. But to me it's worth it not to have to call everyone who didn't bother to RSVP.
I would totally do this, but I'm being a cheap ass because I have another wedding payment coming up. The party is costing me 50pp, so if 10 people don't show up that's 500 bucks.
But generally speaking I subscribe to this way of thinking

DS brought home a random note from his teacher about how much of a hard worker he is yesterday. Then today he tells me that when she dropped them off for lunch, after he hugged her (he's such a hugger), she apparently pulled him back towards him to tell the other teacher there about how such a hard worker he is too. Lol I asked him if there was anything specific he did or something & he said "no, I'm just a hard worker!" so random but I'll take it. oh yeah yesterday he did say that he was principled because that's one of their key words from their units but I was looking for something more. whatevs. 1st grade, here we come!!
+whatever to not being a fun mom. I have a lot of health problems that prevent me from doing a lot of things, but hopefully I'll figure out how to manage her energy. Though the reality of how that will work sort of terrifies me. I may have to send her to preschool or something earlier than anticipated.
