The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Standard

The Bad: The Hubs had to work all weekend long.
The Good: The kids didn’t have school on Friday, so I used that plus the Hubs working as an excuse to get the kids out of town to go visit my sister and her family down in VA!

The Good: The kids were amazing on the 7 hour drive and we had a fantastic weekend hanging out with my sister, her husband, and their two kids. We did some fun fall things, my sister and I got to have a night out and do some shopping thanks to my brother-in-law and I got to sleep in til 9 every morning since my sister was already up with her kids and really, the kids don’t need 3 adults watching them.
The Bad: My sister’s whole family was either getting over a cold or in the midst of one. Guess who caught that cold and is now feeling like death warmed over, with a side of Rudoph-nose? That’d be me.

FallThe Good: We had our first hard frost today. They only really good thing about it is that it’s gorgeous.
The Bad: It’s also slippery as hell- something I forgot when I went out to warm up our cars. I slipped on our top step and fell 3 steps down.
The Ugly: You guys, the bruises. My right arm from my wrist to my elbow is one big bruise. I won’t even tell you about my behind because I’m a lady. Just know, it ain’t pretty.
The Bad: I may have yelled Mother F’er when I fell and Scorch may have been within hearing distance. I’m a lady, I tell you.

FrostThe Good: Scorch is more or less loving school. There are a few issues, but for the most part, he’s a happy kid.
The Bad: O.M.G – he’s had a project due every week for the past 3 weeks. A book report two weeks ago, a map of NY State with 5 land masses, two great lakes, the finger lakes, our city, the state capital and a few other things all labeled on it last week. And this week, a project about a saint- including a costume and a written report. Now, thankfully he’s old enough that this is 85% HIS work- but enough. The regular homework isn’t slowing down to accommodate this and I’m so damn tired. I should not have this much glitter and glue in my house ever.

The Good: Nyquil, soft tissues and the ability to work from home in comfy clothes while medicated.
The Bad: I really don’t have time for this nonsense. Still, so worth it to see my fam.
