Oh. Sadness Snap.

I was moving right along today.

In fact? Despite my mind-numbing cramps that serve only to remind me of personal EPIC FAIL when it comes to fertility? I was having an okay day.

To wit:

1) I kicked the gym's butt after work. Six ways of Sunday, even.
2) I got my new contact lens and can finally pass my employment physical (since, before, I was not street-legal. But don't tell the police, okay?).
3) I got two good pieces of financial news.
4) And! AND! I got to use the words, "rode hard and put up wet" conversationally.

I mean, can you top that day? I think you probably can't.

Then? The children said, "Mom, we have some papers for you!" and what did they hand me?

Registration forms.

For middle school.

Yep. I feel ya. (well, you know what I mean)

We just toured Caroline's new school today -- Kindergarten will rock. . . but at the same time, E-man will begin high school next year. And, I'm not sure I can do both transitions in one year.

You'll be fine. BC & GC are amazing!! And you're gonna kick butt as a middle school mom!

Hey, be thankful it's not High School, right?

Carolyn said...

Oh honey.... My baby is starting high school this fall.

I can't believe they're so big! Wow!

Good job on numbers 1-4! Kickazz!

It's not so bad...I think leaving elementary is far harder than entering junior high. Or middle school as you say.

"rode hard and put up wet"

How can it NOT be a good day when you can use that phrase?

That's one of my favorite phrases to toss into conversation!
