Peach State says: Needed…Before I Explode!

Okay, so maybe I do not need a trip to the beach…. “That would be nice!”
I just need to figure out what, in the world, I am doing wrong! How can I be this big of a failure! Hot-Cold, Yes-No, Snow-Rain…I do know the difference!. “Let me explain!”
Why is it that when the weather radar shows rain and there is a definite presence of rain falling from the sky that it is not raining. “Confused?” [Short Version] The wiser-than-I-could-ever-hope-to-be-13-year-old was told several times that it would be raining later in the morning and yet chose to wait until the droplets began to fall to begin a chore. With a grand “how dumb are you look” he starred at me and said…”It’s not raining!” I could care less if he plays in the rain but do not stand there and give me that ” go suck an egg look” which resembles the previous “how dumb are you look”.

Soaked and with clothes weighed down he comes in and announces that he is finally done. He marched upstairs and took a 40 minute shower. I look out the back window and “nope…not done!”

I have no clue how to deal with a combative and disrespecting genius.
“After all…my other sons have told me asked for my help and guidance and complimented my abilities!”
!

This mystery will never be solved…
“Maybe I would better off counting how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop!”

With so many human emotions bouncing back and forth in my heart and life it is a good thing I can still smile! ( as I hold a cup of coffee!)

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

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.
