    I hear you! I tend to get a bit fidgety when things are calm.

    For just a bit, my world is at peace. Daycare kids are getting along great. Daycare parents are doing well and even socializing outside of here. The extended family is in a calm section of the usual cycle. Bills are paid. No one is actively sick. Nothing is broken.

    Funny how that makes me more nervous. I specialize in chaos. The calm can be unnerving.

    Thank you, guys. Two are down, one to go. One fell down unexpectedly, and hard. I am so tired. Physically, emotionally and logically (which is unusual for me). Logic and the ability to remove emotions from decisions was my superpower. Ugh.

    This morning I made breakfast plates, set them out to cool, then went about my next set of duties. It was not until snack, when the kids asked, what about breakfast did I realize what I had done. The parents were awesome about it through the parents app, but I have to admit, that scared the bejeezuz out of me. I guess if they were hungry they would have shook me out of my stupor, one of them is 5 years old, and my DH is home, but still...... I am the rock in this house.

    The last hurdle will be the hardest. Even though I will be the one doing all the work, I have to get four other people to give the go ahead. These four people can't even decide a location or date to meet for discussion and paperwork. Limbo blows.

    So true! My father was second to the youngest of 16 kids. As his brothers and sisters aged, he was left in the position of having to make life changing decisions for several of them. After watching what he went through, I promised myself and my kids I would do what I could not to put them through the same hell. My biggest worry is that by the time I reach that point, I'll have forgotten what the plan was, where the line was set and that I agreed to it! Good luck with those "balloons".

    PSA: Make a plan with your family for setting the line in the sand when you can no longer care for yourself in case you become too curmudgeonly, violent, and irrational to make the decision for yourself in your twilight years. It is horrible for your loved ones and the legal drama that ensues can ruin your entire lifetime legacy of kindness, compassion, and generosity. Pretty please.

    DW’s in Texas for Nationals till Monday. Im getting ready for a craft fair this Sunday. If there has been one thing that has surprised me about going full time in my shop is how much time I spend doing things not actually in my shop. Getting stuff ready for my booth this weekend, admin stuff for the next show in Atlanta in June, dealing with clients———— I swear I spend more time with a laptop then a hammer or grinder. Still an absolute great time.

    I have 3 emotional lead balloons hanging over me right now. One I will handle tonight. The other two should be over around mid-July.

    I have Major Payne in my head pushing me along... Toot...Toot

    Love that movie. I think he's my spirit animal.

    This whole week has been a bit chaotic.... kids acting "off" but not excludable, Spring and Winter fighting over who's turn it is, parents that seem to have forgotten they are parents, rude neighbors and just an over all cranky pants atmosphere... Never thought I'd make it to Friday with any sanity left but yet here it is! FRIDAY!!

    Best part of the day? My toughest child is off on Fridays, my most "annoying" child is home with dad, my overbearing, by the book, text all day/night DCM decided to send her kid to grandparents for the day and one by one at drop off this morning 3 parents told me they'll be picking up right after lunch today!! It will leave me with 3 kids until closing but I don't mind as they are favorite kids and none of them wear diapers! So it's all good!

    Happy Friday everyone!!!


    I get to see my grandbaby tomorrow and I can NOT wait!!
