Home Alone

This week's topic is to use bullet points.   No theme, other than to use bullet points.  So here we go!

  • Bob has been gone for 10 days
  • Kids are sick
  • Soccer schedules are changed and now everything is at the same time
  • I can't be 3 places at one time
  • I can't get everyone to where they need to go
  • No one is going to school... did I mention kids are all sick?
  • Coaches are yelling at me because I don't have everything done
  • Dropped the ball on Teacher Appreciation stuff
  • I haven't knit in 3 days... I'm too tired by the time I have a minute to sit down
  • Friends say, come with us and play, I say ok.  Oh, no I can't.  Another kid is sick and can't go to school.
  • I need a break.  I need to get away from everyone.  I need someone to pick up the socks, do the dishes, put the trash cans out, bring the trash can in.
  • Library books are over due
  • Research papers aren't done, book reports need to be finished, earth day projects sit half completed
  • I can't go to the gym... because the kids aren't going to school
  • Bob just told me he has to stay longer.  I'm not entirely sure, but I may or may not have had a cosmic meltdown.  I can't remember
  • I bought pomegranate wine.  It had juice in it.  That's ok for breakfast.
It is more than we were supposed to use, but I think Froggie will be ok.  Because right now, knitting isn't making everything better.

The other ladies have bullet points too... theirs are not as whiny.  But they haven't been home alone with 3 sick kids...  I'm not bitter... anyway, check them out at: Froggie, Momarock, and Merrylandgirl


  1. You definitely need a vacation! I could barely handle two days alone with two kids (prior to my daughter being born), so I can't even imagine your stress level. Yes, the wine is necessary for breakfast. :)

  2. Oh wow! Yes, I agree that you are in need of a vacation for sure! I hope when your husband gets back you can take a day or two off!

  3. Yes, it's totally ok that you went over! Hope you get a day off once Bob gets back.
