Yes…It Is Friday…TGIF!

Survival Checklist:
Oxycodone…*
Snacks and medications for youngest…*
Coffee…*
Schedules of each member of the family…*
Pencil with extra eraser for changing the schedules of each family member…*
Coffee…
Dinner started…*

Okay…so a short explanation might be needed.

The boys are going in several directions this weekend…except for our youngest! He will be at our church for a weekend long Youth Event and once I drop him off this evening we will not see him until Sunday after church. This is his first big youth event and I am very note interested to see his reaction. The other boys all participated in this event every year…and each year they were quite different after the event.
My 19 year old is still painting today…tomorrow and Sunday are still in the penciled in stage and pivot on my 22 year old and his schedule. It seems that the employer of the 22 year old has finally opened his second store and my son will actually be working today and tomorrow and possibly Sunday…
BUT…
we got the news last night that our 23 year old will be coming home. Mixed emotions aside the 22 and 19 year old will have to drive across the state and help him pack up and come home. With our schedules this weekend is the only time!

Oxycodone and coffee cocktail…mmm good!

It has been quite a while since we had all four boys under the same roof…needless to say…I am a little nervous!

Parenting…is a sport! Jumping of hurdles, Javelin throws, long distance running…
Parenting…is a mystery “Who Done It” thriller! Deduction and investigative snooping…
Parenting…is a science! Trial and Error…

If you have children then you understand…I am nervous about the homecoming of my oldest but at the same time glad. Glad to know he will be safe, sheltered, fed, warm, properly clothed. “I am such a MOM!”

Well my unique cocktail is beginning to take effect…I must close!
Any suggestions on surviving this new twist in my schedule and family life? They would be greatly appreciated! At least I will have new topics to blog about…JK!

Have a great day!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.

  1. Enjoy that cocktail. Haven’t had one of those before, sounds interesting. : )

  2. I hope you enjoyed your stroll through Sleeping La-La Land! Hopefully your were pain-free upon awakening. Sounds like you will need to double up on the coffee to get through this busy weekend! That’s the only advice I have…LOL! You will get through it…you are SuperMom!
