Good thing my summer was good...
Because things are getting hectic right now. Tomorrow is the oldest boy's first day of private school and I'm worried about getting up early, getting his uniform perfect, getting other kids in the car at that hour & keeping sane through the first week. The ceiling in the basement caved on last night b/c our dishwasher sprang a massive leak. I knew our 24 year old dishwasher would be dying soon, I just didn't think it would go out like that, such drama! The yard was supposed to be our summer project, but it didn't happen and its embarrassing back there. There's so much to tackle right now!
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
