Layla’s typical morning…. restlessly waiting for the kids to get up and entertain her 🐶

Thanks to my awesome hubby I’m not without coffee this morning! I was running late (as always) and hadn’t had time to make any but he came to the rescue and handed me a travel mug on my way out the door ❤️ Thank God bc if today is anything like yesterday I’m gonna need any help I can get.

In the end, my quiet co-worker did alright yesterday. I only had to yell to her 2 or 3 times first thing in the morning to come and help me…. bc she seemed incapable of remembering or caring that she’s SUPPOSED TO. My boss had pulled me aside first thing to tell me they talked with her about what the priorities are in our job — we are public servants. Get up & help. Everything else comes after. They said they made it clear. But it didn’t seem to matter. So needless to say, I was extremely frustrated and felt like crying bc at this point I felt like she just wasn’t gonna do her job no matter what she was told, and I was on my own. But after the first couple times I pulled her up to the counter to help me, I flat out told her to come up there every single time someone comes in so she can learn what she needs to do. Sorry lady, but you had five weeks to learn your job slowly and comfortably. You chose not to. So, it sucks but now you’re getting thrown into the fire. So yesterday was rough. But she learned a lot and by the end of the day things were much better and I actually do like her - she seems very nice. Just painfully, PAINFULLY timid. Hopefully that will go away eventually bc it will not work here.

It’s slumber party time again at our house. This time, we have only 2 neighbor kids instead of 4…but somehow it’s still it’s just as loud 😉

Oh and tonight their Mom told me that her hubby always thought I was one of the kids on the street…he apparently was shocked when she told him I’m the Mom in this house, lol. I get that a lot…that’s what happens when you’re 4’9” and the same size as your 10 year old. I’ve been mistaken for a student at my kids schools and school functions more times than I can count. I used to hate that everyone thought I was so young, but now it doesn’t really bother me (‘cuz I’m old)….Except when I’m out in public with my kids and I can feel people staring and scrutinizing me when they call me “Mom”. Yeah…….awkward.

I feel like CBS and Big Brother have seriously redeemed themselves. They went from having a house full of really despicable people last season to having a group of wonderful people this season. Well done ❤️

Went to a memorial mass for my Dad at the breathtaking St. Joseph’s Cathedral this afternoon. So emotional ❤️

Woke up feeling good this morning…I hope that means it will be a good day. Just gonna keep reminding myself that I can only do so much and not stress about what doesn’t get done {yeah right}. Because honestly maybe my bosses shouldn’t let so many of us take time off at the same time. Not my fault we are shorthanded :-)

On the lookout for bunnies 🐰

What would I do if I didn’t have this little fur face to take pictures of all the time??? 🐶
