Thursday Morning Confessions: Friday Edition

O.K., I know we normally do a Lunchtime Poll Topic on Fridays, but considering my mood it would have been something like, "Why are all living things besides me allowed to breathe my air?" or "I will cut you if you look at me again," which isn't even a question.

So, I think we're all better off if I just share some random facts about my life.

1. Just this very morning the powers that be in the Signal Warrant Officer world decided to increase the training by 5 weeks. This doesn't affect how long Will will be gone--he'll still be home on Thanksgiving. The 5 weeks were added to the advanced training which takes place here. So that means we'll be living here until mid July rather than early June. This is not good. This seriously complicates an already complicated time to move. We were planning on having Liam's surgery done in July so that he could start school on time. Stupid Army.

2. Because of that, I am seriously considering homeschooling Liam next year, at least until January. Have I told you about how I'm not down with homeschooling? I mean, it's great for some people, but not for me. Especially first grade. That's the grade when they really learn to read beyond simple sight words. I do not want to be responsible for first grade. Not to mention I was really looking forward to having all three kids in school next year. Stupid transposed arteries and septal defects and faulty valves and missing subclavian arteries. And Stupid Army.

3. Amelia has been calling me "mamma" in a very Elvis-like way. Stupid southern accents.

4. I gained 5 pounds of fluid over night. Stupid hormones.

5. It's 84 degrees today. It's almost November. My AC is running. It was freezing last week. We had the fireplace going every morning to stay warm. It was so nice--it was like Ritalin for the kids. They ate quietly then they (all on their own with no prompting from me) sat and read peacefully in front of the fire until it was time for the bus to come. Now we all wake up sweaty and the kids run around like demons until the bus comes. Stupid South and its weather.

6. Lately I've had an unhealthy obsession with Justin Timberlake. Stupid Jessica Biel.

7. Lately I've had an unhealthy obsession with cinnamon. Stupid tree bark.

8. Max and Ruby makes me want to rub glass shards in my eyes and shove hot pokers in my ears. I literally have violent thoughts about boiling Max in a pot a la Fatal Attraction when that show comes on. Stupid bunnies.

9. Tim Gunn's yellow hair is really bothering me. It looked better white. Is he trying to pass as blond? Stupid...O.K.,there's nothing stupid about Tim Gunn.

10. I really, really, really want to put up the Christmas decorations right now. Stupid unspoken social rules that dictate anytime before Thanksgiving is a faux pas.
