Triple T!

Thanks to the gorgeous Laura Belle we have Ten Things Thursday!!

1. I can not get used to the time change. By 7:00 at night I feel like I need to be in the bed. I have, in fact, been going to bed earlier, but I am more tired during the day. I don't love this time of the year.

2. Today one of my kids had a birthday. His mom is deployed right now. My heart hurts for any kid who has a parent deployed, but it hurts just a little bit more for kids who have a deployed mother. I didn't know if his step dad would make a big deal out of his birthday, so I wanted to make sure that his day was special. All of my kids get a small party on their birthday. They get a choice between cupcakes, cookies, or ice cream (and all the toppings). When I asked this little boy what he wanted he said "I wish my mom was here so she could make me peanut butter brownies".

Well I couldn't make his mom magically appear, but I could make him some peanut butter brownies...

I didn't eat them, so I don't know if they were good....but he loved them :)

3. I am so excited about my 3 day weekend! I don't have any plans, but I love any day that I get that doesn't involve the alarm clock.

4. I really can't believe some of the nasty things some people have said (either in person or on fb) about the election. It has really made me think very differently about some people...and not in a good way.

5. Marriage is hard....very hard. And that is all I want to say on that topic right now.

6. The Boy just started a new job this week. He works for the company that delivers packages to your house and the men wear brown suits. He looks so cute in his little brown suit.

7. My mother was going to go out of town to spend Thanksgiving with her friend's family. I totally laid a huge guilt trip on her and told her I guess we would just have sandwiches that day. She fell for it and changed her plans. And before you, I do not feel bad about it. I don't mind sharing my mama any other day...but I do NOT want to share her on Thanksgiving or Christmas.

8. I bought a new lunch bag. I got it for only $5.00. My local bff (my other bff lives far away) got a matching one (one with her initial on it). I love it.

9. Tomorrow is jeans day at school. I will be wearing my new size 10 jeans. I will definitely have to check out my badonkadonk in the trophy case when I take my kids to PE :)

10. New Grey's episode tonight....just in case ya wanted to know :)

I love that you made those brownies. I'm glad you let your momma know you needed her. Congrats to your boy. I hear you/feel you about people's comments on the election. I do my best to hide/block as much vitriol as possible.

Awesome job on the brownies - and even cooler that you didn't have any! And hells yes marriage is hard - thats all I say about it too.

That was so nice of you with the brownies -- and they looked delicious. Really, so thoughtful -- I bet that kid will remember it forever. :)

It is Thursday for me. I just watched Grey's and read this.
You really seem like a great teacher.

speck said...

You are such a good person!

I know that child will always remember you and someone who cared about him!

I'm with you on the time change. Heck, I put my pajama's on and I'm done for the night!

Congrats to the son on the new job.

I'm with you on the FB election post. Some people are nuts!

I think that is hilarious about your mom. Just hilarious.

Marriage is hard. Definitely.

I love those guys in the brown uniforms.

And I teared up at the thought of that poor little boy just wanting his mom for his birthday. Teachers like you are rare and I'm sure you earned a special place in his heart for the rest of his life in that small act of kindness. :)

marriage is very very very hard, I hear ya on that.
