If We Were Having Coffee // Almost There!

Hello, hello, and happy Sunday to you all! Thank you for stopping by for a quick chat and a strong cup of coffee, it’s the only kind we serve here I’m afraid, I’ve been looking forward to seeing you. I hope you don’t mind a bit of thunder and rain. The lights may flicker too but don’t worry, it’s only a Colorado spring storm. It will pass and the sun will be back. As we get closer to summer the storms will happen more frequently until they are occurring almost every afternoon, like clockwork.

If we were having coffee I would start by wishing all my mommy readers a very happy Mother’s Day. I hope you all had a nice day of celebration. Being a Mother isn’t easy and I think it’s nice we have a day that each of us remembers to take a moment to think of and thank our mothers. For better or for worse we all are who we are because of our mothers and at the very least we wouldn’t be here without them. They are perfect but you only have one. Remember to call her today.

I actually won’t be seeing my mom today. She has to work and I know she will be tired after so we’ll be making plans to celebrate some other time. I hope she knows I am thinking of her and that I love her very much.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that another week gone means I we are another week closer to the end of the school year. Because I work for a school district that means that my schedule is going to change and life is about to get a little easier. There will be some hard weeks too. When I am not on the bus I am training new people to work with Special Needs Kids. We have a few classes scheduled but other than that I get to sleep in later and work a little easier.

 

I am also thinking about what kinds of schools and routes I want to bid next year. Most years I have opted to work with middle schoolers and young adults. The young adults are great, the middle schoolers, are trying. I like them I really do but they are emotionally draining and I may be feeling a little burnt out. I generally don’t work with the elementary kids—the leak body fluids more at that age—I am considering it for next year.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that last week was a good blogging week. I wrote a post in response to the Death to Stock prompt of the week titled Two Different Bodies, In Love. The idea was to write about how another person’s body has helped you relate to your own. I wrote about my girlfriend and I having very different bodies and how we each wish we looked like the other. Well, guess what? They liked it so much they are going to feature it in their Writer’s Prompt mailing list! Awesome, right?

In other news, I also wrote a post for Hasty Words’ Be Real Series. It went up a bit ago but I forgot to mention to you guys. Check it out and let me know what you think. It is about a very rough period in my life and it was hard to share but I’m glad I did.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that as much as I hate to cut out visit short, I had better get going. My lady has cooked up a delicious dinner and it is time to watch Game of Thrones. I hope you all had a wonderful week and I wish you the best of luck in the week ahead.

If you have time drop a note in the comments, I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to :)

  1. If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how I like to let a few of your blog posts pile up in my inbox and then enjoy them a few at a time when I don’t have to rush.

    I’d also tell you that I really identify with your post ‘The Kind of Mother I Hope to Be’ and how it took me a long time to get over my fears of becoming the kind of abusive person the woman who gave birth to me was. But I am past it, and one day I also hope to be a good mother.

    1. Awwww that’s awesome. I didn’t know anyone read my posts like that :)

      I come from a family full of addictions and abuses. I never knew what a good parent was and I was afraid I would carry all of what my family had put on me and put it into my kid. I’ve come a long way from that…

      Sounds like you have come a long way too. I am sure you will be an amazing mother :)
