Happy Easter Dear Reader!

If you’re interested in doing the weekend coffee share, just link up at Part-Time Monster’s site with your weekend coffee share posts. It’s a virtual coffee catch up that allows us to tell you what’s happening in our lives. So, what’s been going on with me?

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you how exhausted I am. I attended sunrise service at my church this morning and it was awesome. Church started at 6:00 am and they served breakfast right after. I had a caramel frappe at McDonald’s. It wasn’t hot, but it hit the spot. I starved myself for the rest of the day. Why? Do you know how many calories are in that thing?  I know, I know, but I needed the sweetness to bring me strength. I’m not a morning person.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that I miss my Munch. He’s been with his dad since Thursday morning spending time in Danville, Virginia with his Godmother (aka Munch’s grandmother). They go every year and his Godmother is absolutely wonderful and constantly tells me that we’re still family even though we’re divorced. She wants me to come down there and spend some time with her. Munch will then be going to spend time with my mother (his nana) and her other grandchildren at Massanutten beginning tomorrow evening.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you how overwhelmed I am about moving. I still have so much stuff to pack and with Munch’s birthday party at the end of next month I’m feeling stressed. I probably should switch to a calming tea to help me get over this impending move, but I’m a coffee addict. I did pack up a few bags of clothes for my best friend to take to Green drop for me.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that I met with a wonderful, psychologist who will be doing my Munch’s psychological assessment. God has truly had his hand in me finding this man and finding someone who senses my angst and desire to help my son. We’ve scheduled it for Monday, April 4th. I’m still working with the original therapist and I’ve been updating him as well.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m truly happy you stopped by to chat. You don’t know how much your visit means to me. I’m constantly in awe of each and every one of you and I couldn’t be happier you chose to stop by and have a cup with me. Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

Coffee, I Need Coffee – 3/20

Hey loves,

This is my first coffee share. I attempted to do one last weekend and life got in the way and I didn’t do it. If you’re interested in doing the weekend coffee share, just link up at Part-Time Monster’s site with your weekend coffee share posts. It’s a virtual coffee catch up that allows us to tell you what’s happening in our lives.

So, here goes…

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that…I love coffee and I’m sipping slowly on this big cup of French Vanilla. I’m trying to get my mind around the many things that are happening in my life. My Munch is in love with this girl named Savannah at school and was so happy to see her at a birthday party we attended yesterday. “Mommy, isn’t she beautiful? I’m so in love” he says. “There’s more to a person than looks Munch” I mutter. “Like what?” he asks. “Her character. Her values. Her morals. Her heart.” I respond. “They’re all beautiful” he said. “I’m not ready ya’ll.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that…I’m having issues with some of my son’s teachers and reached out to the school counselor for advice. I’m struggling ya’ll. You know that my baby is going through it with his anxiety. Whatever happened to teachers who gave a darn about a kid? I believe that they call it compassion. I told the counselor that my Munch had said a couple of questionable things that lead me to believe that he’s being bullied and he’s not talking to us. I asked her could she talk to him and she said yes. She then sends me an email to confirm the fact that he’s being bullied and left it at my feet. I was beyond irritated and told her that I needed a meeting with her, the principal, his teacher and the head of security at this point because this was/is unacceptable. We have a meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.  Woosah!

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that…I finally found someone to do the psychological assessment quicker than sometime next month. Munch has an appointment on Tuesday morning for the counseling session and evaluation and then hopefully some more information on this testing/assessment.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that…If you missed my post called “Closed”, I’m officially divorced. It was exhaustive, but we are truly learning to be better so that we can co-parent our Munch. Yay! That is one less thing to worry about.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that…It’s been a really busy weekend and I’m exhausted.  Munch had a birthday party Friday night, swim lessons Saturday morning and a birthday party Saturday evening. Oh, and church school and choir practice for the Easter program.  As if that’s not enough soccer practice starts Monday for him and now I’m a soccer mom again.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that…I am going to sit here and quietly reflect on all the changes both good and bad that have occurred this week and pray for continued strength. I sometimes feel as though I’m burning the bridge at both ends, but those are the moments when I need to get into my quiet place and pray. Tame my restless spirit.

My wish for you is simply to enjoy each moment.
