real job?

so the kids at my camp are pretty well off. the other day they were talking about what their parents do for a living; doctors, lawyers, tv personalities...etc. one of the campers asked me what i do for a living during the year. i replied that i'm a stay at home mom...he looked at me- went back to his painting and said "yeah, but whats your real job?"

so far so good...

so the first few days sucked for my little man. he cried so much and sucked his thumb until he cut it open, poor guy. but, by wednesday he was doing better- and today, sweet thursday, he welcomed me with a smile. all in all today has been a good day, smiles from my man, a mom that brought popsicles to camp for us employees and a call from a dear friend who i haven't heard from in way too long. yay for today!

i start work tomorrow for the next 9 weeks and my stomach is in knots. i know that moms go to work every day, and god knows that there were days that i wished i wasn't at home, but now the day is here.
maybe i feel like this because jack was extra "lovey" today. i think this would all be easier if he had a bad day, but it was quite the opposite. we followed our normal routine with some extra hugs along the way.
i know it will be good for him to play with kids his own age, and it IS a mental break for me. i know everything will be will- it will- its only 9 weeks damn it!!-pull yourself together!
sorry, just had to get that off my chest...have a good monday everyone

big storm

years ago, when i was little- before there were so many rules and regulations, i used to lay in the back of our station wagon for long rides....

the way back

coming home on a rainy night-
making marks on the rear window
with my toes.

the rain streaks in reds and yellows
and plinks
on the roof.

my dad calls my name
and i flip up-
look into the rearview mirror

"do you see the moon?"

"uh huh"

"keep lookin' janniebean,
its good luck
if it follows you home."

not for the faint of heart...or if you just ate

i just got back from the dentist...i went to get a wisdom tooth checked out. i figured i would go in and she would tell me that we had to schedule an appointment for it to be taken out- whatever.
she took the x-ray and said "honey, (should i sue for harassment?) we should take it out right now. "
i have never had anything really done to my teeth and sheesh, i was scared. all in all it was not that bad...except for the needle in the roof of my mouth-that blew.
so here is a picture of my infected wisdom tooth-yuk. i swear that i brush everyday! i can't believe that this gross thing was in my mouth---and---that i was dumb enough to have a lunch that consisted of rold gold pretzels and hershey kisses- i am so hungry!
