Bus Wishes with Funnies and New Year Specification: RTT Rebel with Coffee

I’m so tired! The hubby’s summer break has ended, thus putting us back on the 5am alarm daily, but I keep staying up too late for such an early alarm. Some days I sure wish I had the ability to take a nap!

That also means I’m back on the regular car line routine – when the hubby doesn’t have to go in to work, he drops off and picks up Little Dude so I don’t have to. But now that he’s back to his regular schedule, I get to do the car line. Yippee.

Oh how I wish we were in the bus zone! We are just barely within the 1-mile radius that puts us in the ‘Walk Zone’. I mean, we’re talking maybe a tenth of a mile or less inside the parameters of the ‘Walk Zone’.

But that radius is by way of the crow flying, and since Little Dude isn’t a crow and can’t fly, it would be more than a mile of walking to get to the school. And, with his ADHD and ODD, it would probably take twice as long to get there with all the distractions along the way.

So we get to be subjected to the crazy car line. Our next house I’m going to make sure we’re far enough away to have them picked up and dropped off by bus like it was in PA – I got spoiled by the bus stop being right out in front of our house, all I had to do was hang out on my front porch!



Those will be referred to as the “Good Old Days”…heh!  At least now I don’t have to do double runs an hour apart, since Princess Nagger is doing the Virtual Academy this year (and LOVING it since she gets her schoolwork done super fast – which was one of the problems of her angst and boredom last year).

So we’ll have to put up with the crazy car line for a couple more years – I’m hoping we’ll be in a position to sell this house and buy our dream home with property and extra space for craftiness and Winemaking (also why I want more property, so I can plant fruit trees and grapevines like I did in PA). Something to look forward to!

Princess Nagger has decided she’s not going to trick-or treat this year – after all, she’s 13 (will be 14 two weeks after Halloween), so she’s not all that interested in walking around to get candy, she does want to put on her Corgi head and hand out candy, which I think she’ll have a blast doing – and the kids will either love it or be freaked out this giant dog is handing out candy. 

Moving on… This is hilarious:


And now I have this crazy idea in my head I should make a Halloween costume like that. That would be hilarious!

Speaking of costumes… This would be kind of funny, too (though I’m not so sure the image isn’t PhotoShopped):


This is actually a funny prank, especially since I really really really hate spiders:


It’s time once again for Leslie’s (aka Rory Bore) Tuesday Coffee Chat!

The question or prompt for this week is:

“Which is more the “new year” for you: January or September?

For me, January is more the “new year” – probably because of the whole change of the calendar year thing and all, looking forward to the new year bringing new possibilities, particularly if the previous calendar year hasn’t measured up to par like this particular year.

Plus there are all the celebrations and whatnot:


Of course it’s been forever and a day since we’ve thrown (or gone to) a raucous New Year party – maybe that needs to happen this go ’round to ensure the year will truly start off with a bang.

Get your mind out of the gutter!

That being said, September certainly can feel like a ‘new year’ based on the kids going back to school – but less so now that Princess Nagger is home doing her school mere feet from me (which I’m loving) instead of having the house all to myself for a number of hours. And yes, there can be celebratory moments with the start of school…heh!

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. We’re in the same position with drop off. It’s not a big deal for me to take my kids to school and the boys walk to their aftercare but we hope to move in about 1.5 years and to another district where they can ride bikes.

  2. I do not like the cone of shame!! The cat probably – LOL
    I LOVE the Tacobelle costume, what a fantastic idea. And I feel ya over the bus stops. We are outside the cut off line, which means my 2 girls can walk. But apparently once you reach Grade 7 the idea of boundaries ceases to exist – I guess you gain some magical property with the coming onset of puberty or something – and all students have to walk. So even though the bus comes RIGHT HERE to pick up my daughters, my son has to walk. We are a small town so it’s not that bad — until it’s minus 40 with wind chill. Dummies.

  3. No more trick or treating for PN?!?!?! I wasn’t expecting my 16 year old to go, but she was talking costumes last week. (granted her real passion at this time of year is getting costumes for the dog…which he hates…and I end up returning after a brief photo op)

  4. So glad PN is enjoying virtual school, it was the saving factor that got Tara a diploma!
    The car line was a shocker to us in FL too. Thank goodness I worked from home.
    Happy Fall!

  5. Having them do school at home can be a great thing, or a huge bust. It worked for us up to a point, and when the point was reached, it was back to hauling them to school.

    We have an age limit for Trick or Treat here, they are supposed to quit after age 12. We don’t enforce it, of course, but most of them do lose interest around that age.
