The graduation ceremony happened. I will be 100% honest, it was a cluster f*ck! Not only did they not put us in alphabetical order, or any order pertaining to our degrees, but they had us sit wherever and next to whomever. Nobody knew where to go or what to do... and it was hot in there... oh my goodness were we over heating. Normally I'm not into ceremonies, but I did it to appease my mother. I didn't get the memo that people dress up for graduation so I showed up in jeans and a black tee with barely any make up on :\ . I never went to my high school graduation (yes I graduated, just didn't do the ceremony business).
I made some kick ass enchiladas! A friend of mine gave me her recipe and they were SO good, extremely spicy but good.
Dominic has had some major allergy attacks this week. The pollen in the air is making my poor boy suffer. I may need to move us to Alaska :) . Anyway, my great aunt and great uncle came into town. They took us to dinner at a Chinese buffet. It was GOOD. They even gave Dominic $20 and me $20, but I decided to give my twenty to Dominic, to go towards a new trike.
Monday I spent the morning studying at Panera (a bakery for my international amigos). A crazy guy decided to talk my ear off for a good hour about any and everything. I just figured he was poor and lonely & just wanted someone to chat at, so I obliged. I still managed to get my assigned homework completed. After sitting there for 4 hours, I met Christina for lunch at her job and we at Chipotle, and let me tell you the weather that day was spectacular. I came home to some happy mail. I resigned up for IPSY (I can't help myself), and I got some Snapfish prints, as well as some other stuff I had ordered.

9th A Snack: Oreos & Milk mmm
11th A Smile: Apparently my camera decided to focus on the swing chains instead of my kids face, but that's okay, next time I'll shoot manual. :)
12th Mother: She wants you to know that she doesn't normally wear that ugly jacket or mom jeans. (she had been gardening prior to taking Dom out in the stroller)
14th Need: I need sleep too.
15th 7' Oclock (ish): In the morning, on my way to run errands.
Following FatMumSlim's photo a day challenge (except I post it once a week :) )

Project Life is basically a way of scrap-booking that includes photos and journal entries. I take so many pictures of my kid (& random stuff), that this is what I'm doing in lieu of "normal" photo albums. It is my creative outlet. I love all things stationary, sticker, stamps, and office supplies >> so this little hobby is perfect for me. To find out more about Project Life check out Becky Higgins' website.

Date/Time/Local /// May 6| 12:15 am | Couch
Buying/// I've bought almost the entire Old Navy store this season. I usually only like wearing things for a season, so I buy on the cheaper side of life. I've bought Dom quite a bit of new clothing as well. We have fun :)
Drinking/// Water! I am parched!
Eating/// Nothing, but my mom made some German noodles earlier, they have a name, I just don't know how to spell it! It's a lot like Gnocci or whatever, except made from dough instead of potato.
Feeling/// Emotional, angry, tired, aggressive... lol. I'll be okay in a few days.
Loving/// That my internship has come to a close!
Music/// I wasn't really digging music this month. I listen to my 3 favorite songs and than I hop back to the radio.
Needing/// More packing boxes! You should've seen me the Saturday I went and bought a whole bunch but refused to get a cart. I'm sure I looked extra special attempting to walk and hold a ridiculous amount of large boxes to the check out line.
Reading/// Online applications...
Watching/// Same ol same. Nashville, Mindy, Fashion Star. I watched In Her Shoes not too long ago, it still ranks up there as one of my favorite chick flicks of all time.

I sent my best friend Christina a text message late Friday afternoon. I've had this overwhelming urge to just be out of the house for an evening & talk with a good friend, over a delicious meal (& drinks…). Sometimes I just need the mental break. Dominic was going with his Nana anyway, so it was perfect timing. We consumed too much sushi, a cocktail, and what I refer to as "bougie" beer. I've become a beer snob in my old age, lol… I don't like just any beer, it has be GOOD and different. No Bud, Miller, Coors, Natural Ice, or Colt 45s for this gal ; ) .
I've been asked before if I get lonely being a single mother. I do, but not in the way you think. I'm not into dating men. I used to be, but since I've had Dominic and a couple failed relationships later, it doesn't intrigue me or make me happy. I often feel insecure, bored, or too exhausted to ego stroke/pretend I actually give a darn about getting to know the guy in front of me . I've never felt the need to marry & find a "father figure" for Dominic. He has a dad. If anything, I'm over-protective, and trust nobody around my child. & my son doesn't need a mom who acts like a slut. Mostly I get lonely for adult conversation and company. I get an aching need for friendships and a moment to regroup. Maybe one day "Mr. Right" will cross my path, or maybe that life isn't for me, but either way I am content and I am blessed.
Copious amount of coffee have been consumed to stay awake through the rest of my classes. I finished out my internship this past week & went to my graduation ceremony. (still have 2 weeks of classes left).

We've had a tough week, I won't lie. You haven't been sleeping well the past couple weeks. You wake up crying and screaming, than get angry and start kicking the walls ... you do this at least 2-3 times a night. Sometimes you wake up and want play. You're usually so tuckered out during the day from a restless nights sleep that you misbehave and throw more tantrums. I'm exhausted, you're exhausted. I don't know what's in your mind or heart that is troubling you & I wish I knew so I could try and make it better. Perhaps your about to embark on another major growth spurt, or perhaps you don't like getting passed around like a hot potato between your nanas, fathers, and my house. Please know, no matter which of your families house you are at, that you are loved and cared for.
