Love Life....

IPhone App picture from my Boyphone...


I will love life in the following ways this week...


1. I will enjoy my new found little moments of 'alone' time as my child is in preschool.

2. I will sit on my couch and watch an entire show without being interrupted in the DAYTIME.

3. I will take a shower for a really long time and maybe shampoo my hair twice? Maybe three times...who knows...but it can be as many times as I want.

4. My long lost flatiron that turns my hair from crazy curly to sleeky straight will find my hands its company as we make magic.....to my hair. Just in case, cause that almost didn't sound right.

5. I will take a nap! When I feel like it. Or until I have to get ready for work. Whichever comes first.

6. Sigh. I will...love life.

How will you LOVE LIFE this week bloggy pals?

Do tell.

Alright, alright....so did I? Or didn't I freak out like a crazy emotional wreck of a train on my kid's first day of preschool?

So yeah, here's the deal....I was a tad roller coaster-y of feelings when we pulled into the school parking lot.

And maybe I stopped talking in the middle of my sentence to the teacher when I thought my tear ducts where going to spew forward completely ridiculous tears in front of 9 other children who were excited to welcome my daughter into their new gang of little people.

And maybe I just smiled and waved and walked out quickly to the car....with my shades on.

And maybe I sniffled at Starbucks right next door to the school (BONUS).

But...I let em wail once I hit the open road for a good 10 minutes. Like a complete lunatic.

I'm not sure what other drivers on the freeway were thinking as they passed/sped along.

I really couldn't see through the tears.

Joke.

Now is a very good time to be irrationally freaky-outy. Don't feel bad.

Where do I begin? When I finish ignoring my sweet little five year old, as I social network, I will love him to pieces and go make a snowman with him in the freezing cold.

Followed you over here from Circle in the Square.

I remember that day with my oldest...it was rough! Honestly there are still some days now when I drop her off for 2nd grade when I just want to snatch her up and take her back home!

Mighty M said...

Enjoy your week! It's okay to freak out once in a while. Just be sure to pull over until the tears clear!

blueviolet said...

The first day is the worst. Soon you'll be whistling dixie. ;)

Now that I'm used to the idea, I'm really enjoying the mornings kid free. I love the little man, but a break now and then is good.

Shawn said...

I love to take long tubs and read my book---that is what I do when I want to REALLY relax---even though it is only about once every few months!

sammy said...

dont forget being able to go the supermarket using a regular shopping cart, as opposed to, the ones made into a race-car.

Ms Bibi said...

Thank you for stopping by.

The preschool bit is so hard, but it will get easier....till the real school starts.

I hope you are enjoying loving your life this week. It sounds great.

Shorty said...

I hope you are able to enjoy your week, my friend. If the tears come, let them flow, but tune back into your new found reality of mini-solitude! it can be truly wonderful! : )

Kalei said...

Aww sis, this is sweet. I am pretty damn proud of you and lil Rambler....and a little jealous. =)

marfmom said...

Awww! I'm sure I'll be the same way in a few years when my son goes off to school. Right now though, I'm a little jealous of even the idea of shampooing my hair twice! ;-)

Unknown Mami said...

Pretty soon you will be doing all those things, but it's okay to be a lunatic in the begining.

Chatterbox@ The Dialogue said...

Aww..I know leaving your little angel for the for the very first time can be very emotional. But you'll soon learn to love it all.

Your loving life plans sound perfect. Maybe I'll try doing them all and add a few small treats of my favorite cakes while am lazing on the lounge.

Hope you enjoy life the way you'd love to.

Cheers!!

Shan said...

Glad you made it through... however you made it through. And what the heck?!? Starbucks next door? Seriously? When Corey started preschool there wasn't even a Starbucks in the same area code!

Melissa B. said...

The occasional freak-out is perfectly acceptable, as long as you remember that the glass is always half-full. Live long & prosper...SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!
