Fill 'Er Up Friday!

This has been a week full of ups and downs....and the week isn't even over yet.

It's time to do this week's edition of Fill 'Er Up Friday...where I pump you full of all the random tidbits of stuff that's been going on with me all week...and wrapping up any loose ends you may be wondering about.

I'll start with Butter.  After a very emotional meeting yesterday afternoon, it was officially decided that Butter will come out of the hospital and go into the elementary I'm working in.  He'll go in to a regular classroom.  After weighing the options, and basically moving around in circles - we all decided that Butter needs a chance.  As my principle said it best "we're gonna roll the dice and see what happens".  She believes he deserves a chance at proving himself - and the principle, assistant principle, and school counselor assured me that they will work with me to provide Butter the best care and support possible to help him succeed.

I am ecstatic - and nervous.  Of course I want Butter with me...but I know that it's going to be a tough transition for him.  I also believe that, from what I've witnessed since getting my job, is that Butter will have the best education, support, teachers, and administration to help him succeed.  I truly believe if he can't thrive there - then he won't thrive anywhere.

I'm getting me some exercise today... by way of playing in a staff kickball game.  I haven't played kickball since I was in middle it should be interesting.  Two teams made up of staff will battle it out - in front of the all the kiddos.  It's going to be a lot of fun, I'm sure.  And I'm counting it towards my exercise minutes...I don't care what anyone says.  Me running around a softball field is exercise!!

There will officially be no camping this weekend.  I'm bummed about it - and so are my kids.  There will be cleaning, and running, and visiting my parents.  

I'm officially sick of the state my house is in.  After all the sorting and getting rid of stuff last weekend - my house still looks like a disaster zone.  If anyone showed up at my house unannounced..I'd curl up and hide under one of the piles of crap that lines the hallway.  Don't let PETA know, but the dust bunnies in my house are going to receive a slow, painful demise.

Yesterday was payday.  While most people get excited about that particular day...I don't share that enthusiasm.  It just reminds me that there are bills to pay...and as fast as I receive the money, it's gone.  It also reminds me how much I love my job...cause I don't know how I'd make it if I didn't. 

I've decided that the fighting and arguing that takes place between Peanut and Jelly is far worse than it ever was between Peanut and Butter.  Holy Mother of Hades those two girls know how to go at it!!  Can someone please remind Peanut that Jelly is only 3...and her sole job is to play with toys and want attention from her 11 year old sister?  While you're at it - please remind Jelly that she is only 3, and making snarky comments and demanding her 11 year old sister to be her slave just isn't appropriate.  That kind of behavior isn't allowed until she's like...16!!

Aunt Flo is in town, and she came bringing along a pounding headache last night.  I hate her.  She's a pain in my rear end.  I'm bloated and cranky.  Is it too much to ask that one time she visits that she brings cookies? Healthy cookies, of course.  How about instead of a pounding headache, it was pound cake?  I wouldn't even mind if she just showed up and sat around for 5 days without saying a word.  That would make me happy.  But no, she's always got to bring some form of pain, and water weight.  I don't mean to sound ungrateful, Aunt Flo - but your gifts SUCK!!

I have to make a quick exit this morning...I've got bills to pay.  UGH!!  

Everyone have a great Friday.  Enjoy yourself!! Do something a little wild and crazy's so good for you!!

Till next time. ;)

  1. SO happy for you that your son is coming home. With the help you're getting, I'm sure all will work out!!!

  2. WE all hate aunt flo. Kickball sounds fun! Can't wait to hear about it.

  3. Hurray for Butter coming home! And it sounds like you are doing your best to ensure he will have the support he needs. I know it will be good to have all 3 of your kids back home with you. And trust me...the girls arguing won't get any better until they are much older and moved away from home. Now my girls are best friends but oh the fights they had when they were younger.

    I would totally count kickball for minutes. It's exercise and you will definitely be working up a sweat! have fun!!

  4. Your house sounds like mine. I'm at home now, and it's still a disaster zone. Definitely cleaning and organizing time for me, too. I'll think of you as I sort! Have a good weekend.


Tell me what's on your mind - I love to hear from you!
