Yes. Everything is color coordinated. I did decide to hang up my jeans. Move some bags, etc.
And my husband almost has more shoes than I do. Too bad I kicked them all out of the closet except for the ones he NEVER wears.

We’ve been at the new school for three weeks now. My kid LOVES it. In my opinion that’s the bad part. It’s not that I dislike it, for what she likes I honestly do to. There are a lot of things that this school had resources for that our old school just didn’t.
So she is really entertained by all of the going-ons.
Plus she gets to dress like this…
I wish I could get a better grasp of the academics, with her having two teachers that are retiring at the end of this year , its fair to say that NOBODY is going above and beyond.
So we are continuing to play it by ear and to give it until the end of the school year.
What’s been going on in your life this week?

In an odd turn of events, one might actually call it a dare, I have a job interview. Not a serious make tons of money, corporate job, but a job at Fresh and Easy. (The grocery store)
A place where I know everyone who works there, a place where the hours are easy. I’m interviewing today, actually in two hours. WEIRD.
I find myself slightly excited, not nervous. For a long time I’ve been saying that I need something to do. Something besides shopping and day drinking with friends. This could be it, and to think, it all stemmed from a joke.

"How to be the perfect housewife?"
I even bought a book about it. I keep hoping for some miraculous answer, maybe I need a life coach. Not that I want to be perfect, but I want someone to tell me what to do. I need a mom/wife.
If I were me, I'd tell myself what to do. (That made no sense.)
I have a "Home management binder" That I never, ever, ever look at. I read homemaking blogs, that mostly appeal to homeschooling, Christians that garden (Not to stereotype!)
I still read them all, waiting (im)patiently for my answers.
Maybe I ought to give up looking and write my own answers. Maybe someone needs to invent an Internet life coach. Does FlyLady count towards that? Who knows?!
Oh well, I'm off to watch more 7th Heaven.
(p.s. I'm sick...I have a cold and this post was written under the influence of medicine I had to buy from "behind the counter!"

But it's also pretty amazing
(says the "domesticated mama" sitting here typing in her sweatpants and a robe!)
Nowhere to be, nothing to do, where's the bon-bons??

After our first week at the new school we are still alive.
Even “Good” as Izabella tells me that her days have been.
Vague. yes, but she didn’t come home in tears. So I consider that a win.
P.S. I belong to a carpool. AMAZING!! Mind you I only didn’t drop off one morning and didn’t pick up one afternoon, but it was still AMAZING!!
So far, so good.

So if you read above you would know that my beautiful baby girl is about to go to public school for the very first time.
With that comes the social pressures of dressing “cool”. What that actually translates to is “Mom! Can we go to Justice, they have the best school clothes!”
So now my kid will look like this….
but more 7 year old. See the girls behind her? Sneering with jealousy over her neon colored flower wear? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Now..If only we could get her to stop peeing her pants!!

Once again I find myself in the situation of leaving my beloved private school.
Time to try….PUBLIC.
Right now I am trying my hardest to keep an open mind. Trying to ignore my unreasonable thoughts that all the 2nd graders smoke crack and that the 4th grade girls all have a pregnancy pact.
My kid doesn’t get it.
I guess neither do I.
It’s a good school (relatively) and people tell me we will be happy.
Fingers crossed that’s what actually happens.
