I hate my school next door neighbor. I officially hate her. I have tried to tell myself I have no reason to hate her and I shouldn’t but I do. This morning she was saying, “Happy Valentine’s Day!” to kids. Ugh. First of all, you never do anything to add to the already crazed excitement of any holiday as an adult in a middle school. The best thing you can do is to ignore any reference to the holiday- no matter which one it is. The kids get off the chain over anything, so you sure as fuck don’t encourage it. So stupid. Ugh.
My son stayed at my house last night. He is staying with me for a few days while his dad is in the process of moving. He doesn’t want to be there in the chaos. His dad didn’t want him to come- he told me that last week. I think Brent was afraid he’d stay once he got to my house. Brent wouldn’t let him bring his cat to my house- same reason, I’m sure.
This morning I’ve been thinking about making some changes in my life to improve it. Try to lose weight, get back in shape- look better. I can’t get fat. That would be the ultimate defeat. I need to start taking care of myself.
