Yesterday was just one of them days. Instantly as I typed that first line, a song popped into my head. You know, the Monica song from the 90’s? “Don’t take it personal!” Now do you remember? In case you have no flippin clue what song I’m talking about: Monica – Don’t Take It Personal (Just One Of Dem Days)
And now it’s going to be stuck in your head, like it is mine.
We had one of dem days (as Monica would say). Sometimes I look at my calendar and thinks Dayuuuum Gina! What exactly were you thinking Ha!
I went from work straight to a smog test. The good ol Honda Pilote passed. Flipped a bitch and almost ran into my homegirl, Andrea on West Street as I passed Bay’s school (on accident). Grabbed her from volleyball practice early to make her 5:15 pm 12-year doc appointment. Then to the 4-H officer meeting which is followed with a club meeting. But she missed dinner, so I had to make a detour at good ol Taco Bell. Then go back to the meeting…lol! Too bad I don’t get paid by the mile. We left the house at 7:20 am and got home around 8:15 pm. These are the days of our lives…..
Since we’re on the subject, how about a Bay update?
At her doc appointment, we discovered she is currently…….
144 weeks old (sorry, I had too)
64 inches (5’4″)
Bay grew 4 whole inches in 365 days. What happened to my little girl? She wears the same size shoe as I do. And frequently tries to steal my shoes too. Bay also rocked one of my plaid shirts to school. Tried around her waist. She looked so cute. And so grown up.
Bay obviously still LOVES to bake. She’s always up to try a new recipe or google ingredients we have on hand to create something for her sweet tooth. Like these amazing lemon bars she scoped out in the Magnolia Table cookbook that lives on our coffee table.
Bay’s still riding horses once a week. She’s competed in two English horse shows and loves every second of it. So much, that she opted to spend her whole Saturday volunteering at this coming weekends show.
1st quarter report cards come out this week. I never thought the sight of a 4.0 would stress me out. Bay’s been kicking ass at school in all zero – 6th periods and has straight A’s. She was sick one day last week and logged in and messaged all her teachers for the days assignments and completed them from her bed. I’d like to say she’s just crazy excited for school. Ha. But, truth is, I made a promise that if she gets a 4.0 and maintains it – She get’s social media. I know, I know. I said I wouldn’t do it. I’m crazy proud of her and this is the ONE and ONLY thing that she wants in exchange for acing the first quarter of middle school. We shall see how this goes!
