47 Random Thoughts I Have During Carpool Line

Hey y'all! I haven't been to this space in quite a while. It's been over two months, in fact. I said I was going to put blogging on a back burner, but it's been a longer hiatus than I anticipated. Honestly, I haven't missed it much until recently. My blogging mojo seems to be slowly returning. 

So, where have I been for the past two months? Mostly in my car. 

We live on one side of the county and all three of my daughters are attending schools that are on the opposite side of the county. Throw in soccer practices and games at various locations, a few other extracurriculars, errands, and whatever else might be going on and it all adds up to hours and hours of time with my bum in the driver's seat of my minivan. 

Many of those hours are spent in various carpool lines doing all the pickups and drop offs that are required. Today, as I sat in carpool line I was thinking about this long neglected blog and trying to come up with something to write about. Interwoven among all my blog thoughts were a lot of other random thoughts and, therein, inspiration was born. Here are 47 thoughts that run through my mind while I grow a little older each and every day sitting in the carpool line.

  1. Candy Crush
  2. I really shouldn't play so much Candy Crush.
  3. I'll check Facebook instead. 
  4. People are so annoying. I should just delete the Facebook app from my phone, but then what would I do during carpool line. 
  5. Did I return that email?
  6. Did I remember to move the laundry to the dryer?
  7. I swear the is somethingI'm forgetting today. 
  8. Man, I hope the kids don't have much homework today. I am so not in the mood to deal with that tonight.
  9. Ugh! I should have grabbed snacks. These kids are going to whine all the way home about being hungry. 
  10. I'm hungry.
  11. Did I eat lunch today??
  12. Speaking of food, what should I make for dinner?
  13. I'll look at recipes on Pinterest.
  14. I am such a failure. My dinners never look like that and I have no sense of style either.
  15. I should just delete the Pinterest app from my phone, but then what would I do during carpool line.
  16. I have to pee. 
  17. Do I have time to get out of the car and go the the bathroom before the kids get out? 
  18. I'll just hold it.
  19. And distract myself with more Candy Crush.
  20. Oh, there's that mom walking by with her perfect self. I wish I had her style. 
  21. I bet she knows what she's cooking for dinner. 
  22. I didn't thaw any meat anyway, so we'll just do take out between activities.
  23. What activities do we have this afternoon anyway??
  24. What day of the week is it??
  25. **Runs through list of activities in head & checks calendar on phone**
  26. Really?!? It's only Wednesday?!?
  27. Good grief! These kids really better not have much homework.
  28. Why do we sing them up for so many activities?!?
  29. Oof! These pants are so uncomfortable. Stupid muffin top.
  30. I should start going back to the gym and get in shape instead of complaining about my weight.
  31. When do I even have time for the gym, though? 
  32. Also I hate the gym, so just forget it.
  33. I can't wait to put on my comfy pajamas tonight.
  34. ::Sigh:: What time is it? How long have I been siting here?
  35. **Checks phone to look at time* Ohh, Candy Crush!!
  36. This level is impossible.
  37. What level is this anyway?? 
  38. Level 2,704,982?!?! Wow! I really should stop.
  39. I should have brought a book to read.
  40. I never did make it to the movie version of that other book I read.
  41. Wonder if it's on Netflix yet? 
  42. I wish I had gone to the bathroom when I had time. Now it's definitely too late.
  43. This car is filfthy.
  44. My kids are slobs.
  45. But, I love them.
  46. What time is it? Seriously, I've been sitting her FOR-EV-ER!!
  47. Think anyone would notice if I nodded off for a few minutes??
Oh, hey kids!! Did you have good day at school? 
(Thank goodness carpool is over now! At least until tomorrow!)
