Thank You

Thank you to the mom this morning who sped into the preschool parking lot at 65 miles an hour, in her new BWM, while talking on the phone (which is illegal in CA), parking in the only handicapped spot, wearing 5 inch heels, and having her kid dressed in shorts and t-shirt (56 degrees outside). You made me feel like all my bitching to my kids about wearing jackets, having to buy a bluetooth, the fact that I drive a mini van, and that I rock my Ugg boots are all worth it. You made my day :)

Need a Little Peace

So the last couple of weeks have been crazy in the Mommy Files household. It makes me wonder if my sanity is being tested for something bigger or my drama quota is filled for a very long time. First things, my Uncle died suddenly last week. It just happen to be the same day as my Dad passed away 2 years ago. They were also the same age, and died of the same causes. Strange yes, but this was my Mom's twin brother so they were not related. Yesterday was his funeral and it was a awesome send off. He was not one for crying or dwelling so we had a party instead. His viewing was filled with surf music and Led Zeppelin. I even think at one point "Get Down Tonight" by KC and the Sunshine band was played. It was just so appropriate for him. It was hard for me because I had just done this 2 years ago and I feel for my cousins. Just seems wrong being 32 and not having a parent. It also made me think back to the people I have lost in my life. I have had 8 significant people die since I was 18. I am pretty much hoping that I am done in the death department for a while.

Also, I was having so female issues and that was driving me crazy because they could not figure out what was wrong. I will not go into details, but the Doctor said that it may have something to do with my body adjusting to not having a period due to my IUD. I told Jon he has a year to think about what he plans on doing because I am done with all this birth control crap.

So in respect of my Uncle's passing I just want everyone to make sure they reach out to their friends and family and tell them how much they mean to you. I am lucky that I have a wonderful husband and two great kids that remind me everyday how lucky I am. All I ask for is a little peace and a nice Hoilday season :)

Thank you for reading :)
