I haven't really been in a blogging "mood" lately.  I actually have been quite a grump.  Blame it on TOM or the fact that I am constantly freezing to death which in itself makes me not a fun one to be around.  What can I say?  I need to be warm.  At all times.

This week has been pretty busy.  I started the 12 week Trainer this week (supposed to start last week but due to the unpredictable weather and no power it didn't happen).  So far, so good.  I am liking the weight training.  I have missed it.  I am however still doing a couple cardio sessions (Bodycombat) because I love it and it keeps me sane.  Sometimes you just need to go kick the airs butt.

Yesterday I was asked to join my daughters class on a field trip to see the Nutcracker.  I jumped at the chance because I knew it would be the only way I would ever get to see it.  It was.... interesting to say the least.  As I walked into the classroom I was immediately approached by one of the students who went on to tell me all the "lovely" things her mom says about my daughter.  I was shocked that someone who really doesn't know us at all would say such horrible UGLY things about an 8 year old little girl.  I tried to brush it off but I have to admit it is still eating at me.  In fact I cried off and on all day just thinking about it.  I know I shouldn't let what other people say get to me but it does. Especially because it isn't true, and because I would never put thoughts like that in my child's mind about one of her friends.  So after that... I tried to get back into the spirit of the Nutcracker.  I have to admit... it was rough!  What was even more rough was trying to keep a mature straight face while all around me I could hear the little kids giggling about the fact that the two lead men were in WHITE tights that literally left NOTHING to the imagination.

So... I am feeling pretty meh this week... been better... been worse.  Feeling a little down in the dumps but I am sure that has more to do with TOM than anything else.  Next week will be better.

OH... way good news though... I found a part time job.  I am actually REALLY excited about it.  I think that I will be really happy there, it has a great vibe to it!  More on that later!

Hope you all are having a great week.


  1. oh!!! i hate to hear that some other kid MOM has mean things to say about your adorable daughter!!!!
    that alone would send me in a tizzy for a full week!!!

    looking forward to seeing how your12wk training goes and of course about this new job of yours!!!
    hang in there with everything! TOM will be over soon enough!

  2. Thanks Melissa! I really am having a hard time getting over it. You never want to upset a mama bear! ;)

  3. Dude. It's expected for kiddos to be mean, but kiddos' parents? Not cool. And yay--you will love it here. We are all so ridiculous :)

  4. Aww that's horrible :(

    When Janetha posted about her fellow blogger friend starting work with her, I immediately thought of you! Haha

  5. What the heck? Reading that made ME puff up a little, I can only imagine how you must be feeling. That woman probably has a super crappy, miserable life. She probably lives in a world of jealousy and negativity. Next time you see her, just imagine she has a pile of poop on top of her head, at all times, like it just lives up there. ;)

  6. You ladies are the BEST! Thank you so much for making me smile, and giggle!

  7. I would confront the parent. from the heart. if you speak your feelings, people won't get mad, and those that do don't matter :D

    and you are great, your daughter is great and CONGRATS on the job.

  8. SERIOUSLY??! That is so not ok. As if a parent was saying bad things about your little girl!!!! I am all hot and bothered by this up in Canada. I would be tempted to call that woman up and give her a piece of my mind!

    If you do talk to her, I would just state the fact that you don't think it is appropriate that she talk to her child about an issue that she has and that she should have come to you first. Kids are so impressionable. :( Oh man, that just sucks. I totally agree with Ali!

    New job? Need details stat. :)
