Coffee Date Friday




Yay, its Friday!  Happy Friday!  Happy November!  Do you know what happens around these parts when November rolls around?  I get to pull out the big red boxes full of Christmas decorations!!!  I know I’m totally getting ahead of myself but I am counting down the days {stinky side-eye from the Mister…}.  Anyhoots, since today is Friday I’m doing the linky-dance with Alissa for Coffee Date Friday.  Who’s with me?

If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that we finally have a name for our Radical to-be!  Ah, finally!  It’s been the battle of the names around here until we finally came to an agreement last night.  The Mister wanted to partake in the naming but he shot down every name we talked about.  I was starting to think he was doing that just to piss me off so in an attempt to make him focus, I threw out names like Billy Bob and Charleston Lane and Maximus Corpus (not sure where that one came from).  So after getting a good laugh over the silly names, we finally decided on…Mark Taula’i.  The Mister was shocked that I wasn’t adding another name  to Mark since the other two Radicals have a hyphenated first name.  I like this one.  It’s nice and simple.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I cannot wait until this week is over.  Wait, let me re-phrase that – I cannot wait until finals are over which will be on Sunday.  I’m hanging on by a thread and my final essay that’s due on Sunday is making me crazy. 

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve been diligently working on my emotions and patience.  Not only because I hate feeling this way but also because I got a huge slap in the face this week.  The BS and drama going on with the neighbor has had me on edge and constantly walking on egg shells.  I’ve been bitter and angry because we have to live with it for now and adjust our lives just to keep the peace.  We’re prisoners in our own home.  I’m constantly “shhhh”-ing the Radicals. We don’t get out for fear that the neighbors will get mad and start something.  What fun is playing outside when we have to be mute?  Anyway, earlier this week in the middle of my bitterness, Radical #1 told me “here mom, I have a heart for you so it can make you happy and not mad and you won’t yell at us anymore.”  Well shoot, just gouge my eyeballs out and stab me in the heart why don’t you!  Radical #1.  My 4 year old.  That came out of his mouth and it pierced my heart and stopped me dead in my tracks.  Sounds dramatic but hello!  I felt awful.  Yep, Mother of the Year award goes to Jenn.



If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I got to hold my very first nephew 2 weeks ago.  I know I said I was going to show pictures but I was caught up in the new baby moment and there was no time for pictures.  I’ll do my best to take some pictures when we go back for Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving…which happens to be in two weeks.  TWO WEEKS people!  Didn’t we just start November?  What the???  I wish time would slow down even if it’s just a teeny-tiny bit.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that we went to feed the ducks on Wednesday and holy moly!  It was like the whole duck population of Hilo, Hawaii was there.  They were everywhere.  I haven’t seen so many ducks in one place in my entire life.  The Radicals had fun though and of course the Mister had to get all native and make fishing poles out of sticks so the Radicals could catch torture some fish.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask your opinion on Christmas decorations.  Would I be weird if I put them up now?  I just cannot wait.  The Mister bought me a holiday door swag from Costco two weeks ago and I want to rip it out of the box and hang it up already.  No?  Okay, I’ll take it one holiday at a time…

If we were having coffee, I’d apologize for talking your ear off and ask how you’ve been?  What have you been up to?  Are you excited for the holidays?  What are your plans?  Am I on your Christmas list?  Haha, I’m joking on that last question!

I hope y’all have a great Friday and enjoy your weekend!

xoxo,
Jenn.
