Hump Day…

Posted on: January 22, 2015

Wednesdays don’t usually feel like hump days for me,

that day you have to get through to get to the short time for the weekend…

That’s because it’s time for our teen home-school bowling 

Well, not just for the teens as we parents bowl as well…

IMG_2707I began with jeans and my blue boots from Ireland ….

It’s funny how outfits come together and this one began from the bottom up…

Since my Jeans are really Diane Gilman straight leg jeggings,

a longer top was in order (it has a faux fly I like to cover)  

My Old Navy sweater was a blank canvas for a scarf 

I wanted to add a vest too so, the purple one worked best with my scarf choice,,, 

ta- da an outfit creation…

I love this scarf with the pinks purples and blues that was a gift from my son a few years ago.

It’s a good thing I am not a serious bowler, but do it for the fun and camaraderie with other parents.

I usually don’t get gutterballs, but today I think I had a record for the worst day of them…

No worries I have fun regardless of my scores…

Dear Readers, Are you competitive by nature?  I am not and never have been… Often times I’ve wondered what that would be like , but I actually like my more laid back way and just enjoying the experience .  

If you are competitive is that something you enjoy about your nature?  

If not is that something you appreciate not having in your character?  

I think we are all hard-wired differently and can’t imagine myself any other way….. 

Gratitude

I am grateful that I succeeded in calling one of the mom’s by her own name rather than her daughters, LOL…

I am grateful for a fun break mid-week to count on,  as a stay at home mother, it’s priceless…

I am grateful that we have made plans for two more parents night outs in the coming weeks. 

I am grateful that my son called me today, he reminds me so much of my father with his confidence and compassion, so much so today that it brought me to tears.   

I am grateful that my photographer and I had a great laugh at our shock of how cold it got between our coming home from bowling around 1pm and our photo shoot at 4pm… our expressions and antics were hilarious and mutual…

What a gorgeous scarf – it looks so fabulous with your vest! And of course you’ve got a great smile! Once it warms up here I have a vest I can’t wait to wear with a cozy sweater and scarf.

I have to admit that I am competitive – and I’m also a bit of a perfectionist (hello Virgo), but I really try to dial it down and enjoy the process, and not the win….. but winning feels soooo good 🙂

I used to teach primary school (grades 1 -3) and I was always saying “it’s the process, not the product that’s important”. I try to take my own advice! I would like to be more laid back, so I admire that in you!

Too funny that I think life experience has made me go against my Virgo nature… I also think watching my perfectionist sister as a child greatly impacted, my choice to go the other direction…I am slowly trying to soften the perfectionism in my youngest and am making headway, though accept it will take a lifetime if he chooses to go completely Zen..

Great age group to teach! I admire any teacher especially in this age of schools..

I’m a mostly non-competitive, peace-maker type person. I say mostly because it matters greatly to me how my first-graders succeed, and I might be competitive in that area. But as for me, personally, I prefer to be in the background in most situations. I usually lose in games I play with the family and don’t mind that at all. My husband is quite competitive as well as one of my daughters, especially. So it has always helped that I’m not! Ha. I find myself uncomfortable around people at work who are highly competitive and “pushy”.

Someone has to be entertained by the competitive ones and you seem to have enough around to do so. Wanting your students to succeed is a very positive reason to be competitive. Your profession and success of those children is a huge asset to our society… Have a wonderful weekend!
