Haiku for Life
Snack and Stack
December 3, 2008
Jack Quimby, are you out there? I’m pretty sure that your family NEEDS these.
I attended a few events for the law school at the end of last month and stuck my name tags on my work calendar so I can be impressed with myself. I feel like (1) the admissions committee is crazy wack for thinking I deserve this scholarship, (2) who am I kidding thinking I could handle law school, (3) I'm so glad I started seeing a therapist NOW so I have a solid six months to work through my self-loathing issues. Fortunately Jarom is impressed enough with me for both of us, and he's more willing to brag.
If you get a package of swag in the mail, it's official, right? Law school here I come!
"Why does motherhood have to be about loss? I know there are great things ahead. But this - it's gone. Motherhood is knowing that you have to give up lovely moments and leave them behind, and you don't do it for yourself, you do it for someone who will have no idea the kind of love you feel for them until they sit holding their own baby and the world - the big, bright, amazing world - is suddenly contained in this tiny bundle." --Deep thoughts from my journal in 2016, the day I nursed Ramona for the last time.
Not-so-fun fact: even after Christian's death and several years of meeting LOTS of people who've lost a child, I still don't know what to say when I hear about someone's child passing away. Especially during the holidays. I think saying something is better than saying nothing, though. Fellow bereaved parents, what's your stance?
😭😭😭 I miss baby Ramona so much
Jarom bought this for me in case I did well on the LSAT. I feel like he maybe should have waited until my score came out? Doesn't matter though - 172!!!
LSAT score tomorrow. I need some major distraction in the meantime!
I was so excited that the big plant stand/shelf I ordered finally arrived...only to discover there are pieces missing from the package. 😩
Jarom painted a wall for me while I was gone so that's a win for today
