HELLO LIFE QUESTIONS | It may, at first glance, appear that there is no rhyme or reason for a decision, an award, a choice. My answer? Follow the money. Always follow the money. Tough for a pure altruist to understand. Better understand it before you engage in real life. To this point? This has not been real life. Good preparation but not real.
HELLO ANXIETY | Exam week is ugly. You can slice the tension with a knife! I can offer nothing but balanced meals, encouragement and ice cream. I tested badly as a student and you couldn’t pay me enough to take another exam.
HELLO MIX & MINGLE | A mum from the graduating class has organized a gathering. The long goodbye has begun.
HELLO BIRTHDAY | Sweet 16.
HELLO BIRTHDAY PARTY | Happy my girl has big brothers – one older and scary, one big and scary. It seems like yesterday a party was hosted for her older sister. Three years and two homes ago! Blink.
HELLO PRIORITIES | My girl loves singing, dancing, performing and all that has to do with musical theatre. She is foregoing an opportunity to audition for “Footloose” to focus on her studies and school leadership positions as student ambassador, senior leader and peer councilor next year. The real surprise is that she decided this for herself before talking to me about it. Good girl!
HELLO DISAPPOINTMENT | At this point in the school year there have been plenty of solid lessons in never doing anything, ever, with the expectation of anything. Stick with doing things you love because you love them. Do not do things for any reason other than the joy it gives to you.
HELLO END OF RE | This season of Mercury in Retrograde has been EXHAUSTING.
HELLO FREDDY BEACH | Tickets are booked. Car rented. Hotel rooms reserved. I am having a blast exposing my kids to my extended family. This occasion will be no exception!
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite day of the week. I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
What are you saying hello to on this brand new Monday?
