It's Week 16 of my Stream of Consciousness Sunday posts. Where in the heck did this year go! Can you believe it's almost Halloween?! The 2nd Spiderman costume I bought for Munchkin is now almost too short. Thanks goodness for red socks & tennis shoes - no one but me will know. He's got two more times to wear it officially & then who cares. I don't want to buy him a third Spiderman costume, but something tells me he'll figure out it's almost too small again & I'll have to buy him a third. There will be tears about it - from both of us.
I'm so grateful to have 2 days off from work, even if it's to spend money on my vehicle, which needed a lot of TLC in order to be ready for the winter. I'm grateful that I found tires where I could get 0% financing for 6 months, plus a nice mail-in rebate. Tires are one of those purchases you know you have to make, but it puts a big knot in your stomach knowing what else you could have spent that money on.
I did get my hair done on Friday... and I even let her trim it. My girl literally put her hand on my forehead & asked if I was feeling alright. ( I always say "let's do it next time.") She went scissor happy though, evening it out & adding in a few layers again but I'm okay with it. I always leave feeling like it's too short - perpetually trying to grow my hair into long layers but it never seems to grow past my shoulders. Oh well it feels good & healthy again.
I'm getting nervous for Kindergarten planning. I've started requesting info from schools & for the most part it's the logistics of it all as a working Mom that worry me so much. I know everyone figures it out - but it's so much more difficult for working moms. Before & after care, bus rides, shifting schedules - more expenses - more responsibility with homework. The list goes on - but this is totally what I signed up for.
So much on my mind about my career, things we need at home, planning for the holidays & birthday parties coming up, the one thing I have to remember to do is take time to just breath. Somehow it will all start to make sense - the best options will come to the surface making the choices ahead clearer. Doesn't it always?
