Just Write ~ The Eighth

October 31, 2011


I have three different glasses of water on my desk. Two green glasses and one orange. I don’t know how that happened. I was trying to fill in the November calendar on the wall and be sure to fill in the google calendar at the same time so that it will send me reminders to my phone.

I need reminders because this week the kids in kindergarten are wearing a certain color each day and I even have to put that on the calendar because I am always always That Mom that forgets. Like last week, Asher went to his preschool Halloween party with no costume.

Then I felt awful. He didn’t seem to mind though. They got to see a fire truck that day anyway.

Another day I’m supposed to remember to bring a cucumber because they’re making pickles and then another day it’s Asher’s day to bring the snack. Then part-way through the month I need to remember that it’s Invite-a-Veteran-to-Lunch day at Miles’ school and so we’ll bring Bapa.Then I added my own writing types of things in the calendar and other events and birthdays and stuff and then it was full. Which means it will be Christmas month in five seconds.

Red Day, Blue Day, Veteran’s Lunch Day, Cucumber Day…

Mothers have a lot of random things sitting on all of their other thoughts. Today I’m writing them down and typing them in for the keeping track. But I stopped for a moment because Miles wanted me to draw a bat with bird legs and feet and so I did. Then I drank a lot of water from the orange glass like I was preparing for the sprint through November and then I laughed when Miles said, Guess what I’m going to tell you, Mom?


Happy Halloween!!!

You too, little man. Now let’s go be in October and get some candy.
