Stop volunteering for something that you don't have time for or interest in. Seriously, not only will you feel relief, but you're not doing anyone any favors taking on a role you can't handle.
Just Say No.
Once upon a time, I liked to go out the night before Thanksgiving.
Now, on this night, I like to do old lady things like prep food, and do my nails, and drink tea, and tell the same story of that one time I climbed in the window of the Bent Elbow on Thanksgiving Eve*, and go to bed shortly after the time I was probably arriving there that night. 👵
*(We talked about this before; it was either 2000 or 2001, and several of you were there, even though I didn't even know some of you at the time!)
Every Heartbeat by Amy Grant, Sarah by Jefferson Starship (I had to look that up), AND These Dreams by Heart. That's some good old random food shopping music hahaha
My son just chose the exact number I was thinking of, between 1-25, TWICE IN A ROW so it's safe to say we could use some separation after this summer haha
One thing crossed off, two things added is the 'one step forward, two steps back' for list makers...
Just keep juggling!
Such a great quote.
“Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording —all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night.”
I looooove that most of my kids' friends' parents are like-minded. But it is hard to have rules when it not only *seems* like everyone else is allowed...but pretty much everyone else is allowed.
Although still cute, the mom profiles get less funny as the kids get older and actually know the right answers. He nailed this one, except for this question 🤔😂 #nooffense
Why is what I'm not good at even a question?!
