Sunday Times

So, I am still in my jammies at 2:30pm, but have gotten so much done! Punkin has been with her BFF all morning so I got my syllabi for school done and have gotten a skeleton of a schedule down. I am even sort of looking forward to the first day back. I think I am going to show them the classroom version of Randy Pausch's The Last Lecture. I found it quite inspiring and have been living more in the moment since seeing it.

Last night, Punkin was in tears talking about not wanting to be in her computer lab. I get so upset when I see her exhibiting my anxiety-depressive symptoms. She's going to have a heck of a time getting through adolescence...but then again, who doesn't? I just wonder if all of these hormonal things are already hitting her.

She wants to have a 70's themed party for her 10th birthday. Got the costume in yesterday, which she is delighted with. I can't believe we are leaving single digits behind. I am so not ready for this...

I can't believe kids are having parties themed after an era in which we lived!!!!! Her "costume" was perfectly normal clothing for people back then! Oh, I feel old.

I guess that's how my mom felt when I wanted to have 50's parties and wear a poodle skirt! Ha!
