    I didn't realize until yesterday that Eric Carle had passed away. He's always been my favorite children's book author.

        Ding, dong, the....... I could not decide whether is was a vent or funny. Positive did not really fit, either, because of the level of passive aggressive I am actually feeling. You guys get it though.

          Good Morning! It's Friday and hoping to have a WONDERFUL DAY! Hope you all do as well!

          I started early.....too early.....I don't know if things are really that busy or I'm just always catching up.

          Still working on the power of positive thinking....

          Happy Friday!

          I forgot to brew coffee this morning as my husband usually does it and he was out of town. I did bake fresh blueberry breakfast cakes this morning and the house smells amazing. I added some vanilla and a little cinnamon on top to set off that fall feel. I can only smell it intermittently, but the neighbor made sure to comment sweetly as I was out filling the bird feeders this morning. There are so many birds, here, today. I bet they are hoping for shelter from the storms that are coming.

          I hope everyone in the southeast has prepared. Maybe if we all do, nothing will come of it.

            Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. I heard it was looking like a doozy of a storm heading your way!

            We are better prepared this time. With the loss of so many trees last year, there are only a couple that hold any risk. We also bought a generator and had lines run directly to our power box. Just like flipping on a light switch, now. That will be huge this winter, too. We lose power a lot down here.

              • BC, we are good, lots of rain but some surrounding counties are devastated losing loved ones and their homes....so sad to hear the stories of the littles especially that were lost while parents were trying to save them....11 inches fell so quickly there was no time to prepare....I couldn't stop watching/reading about it.

                  Oh good! Glad to hear you are all safe! So sorry about those poor little babies! Losing everything you have in storms is sad but losing loved ones is tragic. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in your area that are struggling through the bad weather!

                  Thanks y'all!

              • I talked with a client this morning about setting up an interview time to fill my vacant spot coming up....she replied with 'it would have to be close to 5' as she doesn't get off till 4:30. To which I asked if my closing at 4:30 would be an issue before we move forward with the interview....she said very 'bullyingly'....." I am sure you will allow me to pay extra so my childxxx can stay till I'm able to pick up" .....well y'all can tell I'm an emotional roller coaster right now so this didn't set well with me.....so I say " 4:30 is non-negotiable at this point so I will move on to the next client accordingly". My emotions are so out of kilter....feel like crying to uncontrollable laughter to total frustration! Something has to give!

                Oh, wow. Yeah, that would have ticked me off. Closing time in non-negotiable. Some of these folks think late fees are no big deal but then complain about a $2 increase in tuition, crazy making. Next.

                • I got up early today and cleaned the entire upstairs of the house. My DD didn’t give me any grief before heading off to school. My difficult drop off child was perfect today. I have an interview this evening to fill the open spot I have. We’re off to a great start!

                  I hope every has a great Wednesday morning! ☕️

                    Nice

                    My day was off to busy start.
                    • 4yo decided to pee all over the bathroom. This is completely out of character for him as he is usually a very "type a" personality and will even roll the toilet paper back up to the "perfect level, just beneath the roll, after drying his hands.
                    • Then both newborns arrived unfed for different reasons.
                    • Followed by 2yo full blowout in the car seat and naked upon arrival.

                    That said, now everyone is clean, fed and happily dancing with play silks to radio disney, so I have hope the worst is behind us. Preschool does not start until next week so we will be watching movies and eating treats after playground time. Planned, laid back afternoon.

                      Tuesdays. I don't know why but they always come out swinging.
