I was reading “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” last night and I realized that it is exactly like my life.

My children are that little mouse.

The domino effect of nonsense that occurs on a daily basis looks exactly like that book.

It feels like Fall today. 
It’s gross and cold and rainy.
And it reminds me that we’re just around the corner from all things that aren’t Summer (thank you baby jesus).

Year One of grad school is finished (as soon as I wrap up this paper) meaning our nights of 9:00 dinners are limited. #halfwaythere #gimmieallthewine

An accurate representation of how I’ve felt about work/school/life in general these past couple of weeks.

I mean, these are cute and all, but when I moved to Boston and was living in Dorchester and taking the train home super late from one of my many jobs, my mom gave me a stun gun. I carried it in my coat pocket with the strap around my wrist, that way if I got knocked down I wouldn’t lose it.

COME AT ME.

There are two types of 30 somethings that you will meet in your life. Those who have seen The Goonies and those who have not.

Pulled an A-, kept my 4.0.

  • I’m alive!
  • We went to Ohio
  • It took us 15 hours to get there and 16 to get back. With two kids and one dog.
  • Ha. Ha ha. Ha.
  • But Ian can now sing “gooooooo!” (Elsa style) on command because we watched Frozen so many times.
  • We spent time with my family. My nephews! Yay!
  • We took the boys to a water park and it completely blew Ian’s mind and he loved it and tried to drown himself about 10 times.
  • Then two days later all four kids got the pukes and diarrhea and there was like some big outbreak because the pool water wasn’t cleaned correctly. So, that was cool. 
  • We then wrangled two kids through family pictures in 90+ degree heat and I thought they would be awful but I got them back and want to buy all of them. They’re amazing.
  • One of my very best friends got married.
  • On the hottest day of the year.
  • And for the three days before that I was on a ladder in a barn stringing lights and tulle and decorating tables and I fully realized why people hire wedding planners.
  • But I drank a bottle of champagne in a church pew after the ceremony and didn’t get struck by lightening so A+.
  • Jesus did drink wine you know
  • And then after the reception (where Jon pulled a hamstring from all his dancing. Seriously.) we slept for five hours and got up and drove 16 hours home
  • We crossed the state line at midnight and both kids were crying and I was like “WE WILL NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER DO THIS AGAAINNNNN EEEEVVVVEEEERRRRR”.
  • And then that very next day I had my final presentation for my first summer session class and I’m pretty sure I got my first B since being in grad school and completely fucked my 4.0 GPA and I can’t even think about it because it literally makes me cry.
  • On Tuesday I came back to work to over 800 unread emails.
  • And I still hate everyone most people.
  • But vacation. Yay!

I have reached the pissed off point of no return. So I will be starting my vacation now. Instead of tomorrow.

Good-bye work until July 1st.
