I spent an hour going through photos for the Bar Mitzvah montage the other night. I am nowhere near completion with this task as narrowing down my son’s life in pictures to only 160 photos is not easy.
This picture sorting process is also not easy on the emotions, not only because I see that sweet little baby face wondering where the time went but also because I am reliving my past and the life I had before my divorce.
It’s as if the pictures have this invisible life stamp that screams out to me, PRE-DIVORCE! and then there’s POST-DIVORCE!
Even worse are the photos with the invisible life stamp for the time period of pictures that weren’t quite pre-divorce but not yet post-divorce and that stamp says something like, WHAT IS GOING ON IN MY LIFE?!
I came across this picture (pre-divorce, very pre-divorce) which is really indicative of my mommy life back when my son was a baby.
Messy hair, disheveled appearance and a baby in the jogging stroller that I bought because it had a fun steering wheel, not because I was going to use it for running. Ha, running? Who had the energy for running?
I prayed this jogging stroller was going to solve all of my problems. That FUN steering wheel was somehow going to entertain my active baby so much that he would want to sit and play, get tired from all of the FUN and then fall asleep. Never happened. Not once. What usually happened? I set out for a walk, made it down the block before carrying him and pushing the stroller home.

I need this shirt. I am not sure if I am too old for wearing smiley faces but the I don’t care part with the simple smiling face is just perfect for me. Perfect.
On Wednesdays we wear our I Don’t Care shirts.
Now that I am thinking about the line, On Wednesdays we wear pink, I bought pink Ralph Lauren bath towels at HomeGoods and I am convinced they are not the same quality as the department stores. The pink has faded big time after only one wash. Yes, it’s possible that my laundry skills are to blame. But still, I question HomeGoods quality.
Can someone please come clean out my refrigerator? And maybe the freezer too? I don’t know what is going on in there but I stopped caring.
You know how else I know I have stopped caring? I am kicking off my running shoes without untying them first.
