This is going to be positive and full of light. Ok, maybe not the whole thing because that would be annoying.
I rescinded all punishments and we're going to try something else. Mostly because I am sick and if I have to entertain my son all weekend without any screen time breaks I might die. See, so much for positive and happiness already. Anyway, I think not having a small child on lockdown for not going to bed might have been a tad extreme. As a woman, I'm blaming the age-old PMS and also the cold that about tried to kill me this morning when I tried to wake up. It tried to pull me back into bed while I got my son ready for school. Thank God for school today. I seriously needed 2.5 hours to myself to rest!
I also tried a neti pot for the first time today ever. I also tried using a spoonful of honey (shut up!) and it really did help with the congestion. The neti pot was disgusting and horrible. NOW I know why my son throws up whenever I use the saline spray on him when he's snotty. But it worked for a while and I did feel kind of good while I ran errands. But still disgusting as all get out.
I have so much work this weekend that I feel blessed it's available but man do I feel like laying in bed all weekend. But the holidays are coming and I'm already going to miss out on my Black Friday shopping. I'm SO upset about this!!!! I'm a little worried work will slow down during the holidays and I'm going to be struggling until January. I could really pass on that too. I think as a freelancer it's normal to worry about work slow down, and I had to chase down my first client for a payment. That was not fun.
I miss going to school. I'm really ready to go back after the past 6 months off. I can't believe it's been 6 months already! I'm ready to fill out my FAFSA and all that fun stuff. The taxes...well, we'll see how I feel about that in January too. I made some changes in my freelance clients and I'm hoping to see an increase rather than a decrease, but I think the change caused a dip in my income for a while while it all sorted out.
Lastly, in my random babble for the evening, I'm shocked that it's almost Thanksgiving! I'm excited and I can't wait to try some new desserts, but holy cow seriously???!!! That means Christmas and snow is right around the corner. Totally freaking out about snow. Seriously. I hate snow. And I moved up North rather than back down South. I'm insane obviously. I'm praying the snowflakes I see in the forecast disappear to just rain. Yuck.
