Yah Yah. We all know about us Stay At Home Mom’s.
Sitting around all day in our Pj’s watching our “shows” and eating bon bons.
Not a care in the world. No worries, no complaints.
If this is true then what the hell is wrong with me??
My name is ModernMom and I am a SAHM, I am busy and I am a Worrier.
I make lists. My last list was not titled “To Do” of “Honey Do” (one of my favorites by the way). but was actually tittled.
“My I’m Freakin Out and Never Gonna Get It All Done List”
This SAHM is one of the busiest people ever!!
So when I lie in bed at night lately I just can’t seem to turn it off!
On top of the lists running through my head, are these random thoughts:
I wonder if my BlueEyes is right that the wee boy in her class who mames insects and glues them to paper is going to be in jail one day. (ummm can you say serial killer???)
I worry that I have not picked out the right dress for the upcoming charity event. (It’s a fine balance between she looks hot and she looks like she is trying too hard)
I can’t believe I had to turn down another dinner invite from the same couple. They are going to think I’m dodging them. (I am so not.)
I am sure this much chocolate can’t be good for you, and is not going to help me fit into said dress. (Must add buy more Halloween Candy to my Freakin List)
I worry about a girlfriend who is very ill and another who accepted a proposal from her Mr.Big. Sigh.
I wonder why the school my kids attend. A really good school, with an absenteeism rate of almost 25% right now, has not been shut down until our kids can be vaccinated against the swine flu.
I wonder if getting the H1N1 vaccine is even the right thing to do.
I can’t imagine why parents with ill children have to be TOLD to keep there kids at home.
I’m ticked off that I missed garbage day and when it only comes every 9 days or so, this is a big deal.
Another marriage. Another friend devastated. Another family has ended in divorce. This is 4 in just under a year! What is going on?
My head spins back around to a charity event I’m organizing. Ticket sales, seating, ordering wine, centrepieces, auction items……
Then when I look at the clock and realize it’s 3am an I have to get up in 4 hours! Oh you should never do the math!
Sleep comes but it is fitful and full of vivid nightmares.
Today I am whiny and will end up strung out on coffee and rambly. Like this post!
What is my point?
-If your kids are sick. Show respect and keep them home.
-Never underestimate what a SAHM has going on behind those closed doors.
End of Rant!
Wishing you all sweet dreams!
