I have been in a motivated, focused daze today…and I am sorry. BUT…now with all of the lovely chores completed…my yes can’t stay open. I don’t think there is enough coffee
To hold these sad-little-droopy-eye-ball-covers.
Garfield is so strong!
But I am WEAK today…BUT… “What A Ride!”
Dinner has been started and TKD is on the schedule for this afternoon.
Have a great day!
With the events of the past week weighing heavily on my, already sore, shoulders I look like I am bent over using a walker. Of course this is not how I look but boy…do I feel like it! I am trying to find something positive in this burdensome basket of negative. I was taught to Always look for the Silver Lining but… I Lost My Silver Lining!
Here is a sample of this weeks events:
My oldest son came home.
My youngest decided to cut teachers notes about behavior out of his agenda.
The clash between the older boys.
Job hunting for oldest son.
2 1/2 weeks worth of pages fell out of my youngest’s school agenda.
Conduct marks for his negative behavior at school.
I need more coffee!!!
Oh…and on top of all of these wonderful-parent-child-memory-building events I lost my voice because of allergies and my doctor pulled a MRI out of the proverbial What’s Wrong With Peach State Hat…
Did I mention I need more coffee?
Sorry…I seem to be waiting on my cabana boy to serve my coffee to me. Back to reality! I refilled my cup and said goodbye to my hubby…even took my precious princess outside for a second time… I have a few more minutes before the next wave of activity hits the fan and I put on my chauffeur hat. “I just hope I have enough gas in the car without raiding the depleted bank account!”
The dynamics between the three older boys have always been of a 2 against 1mentality. Unfortunately the oldest is the 1 the my 22 and 19 year olds are the tag-team. My oldest has made his share of mistakes and says he wants to get out of the hole he has dug for himself. “Egg-shells, thin ice…just the way things are with him.”
My youngest…Mr. ADHD…has decided to deceive his parents. Well he thinks he is…but is he in for a rude awakening. Basically he thought by taking the pages out that we would not find out about the notes from his teachers.
Everything I need as an adult I learned in Kindergarten!
Page numbers missing…changed dates…altered letters on teacher’s notes…pictures drawn over teacher’s notes…top of pages cut out of book…well, that is just a few of the things he has done this week. I have not mentioned the behavior that prompted the writing of the notes. Yep…I guess I fell off the Turnip Truck! I would scream for help…but I would probably lose what voice I do have.
So…positives from the negatives…
I know all my children are safe and secure.
My youngest was not arrested at school for his behavior…yet!
My oldest is looking for a job!
My other two sons are working.
My voice is coming back…which is a good thing seeings how I am on the trio that is singing Sunday!
My coffee Is wonderful!
Alright…so maybe I just lost sight of My Silver Lining! It is still there…I just needed to look at things from a different angle. You know how that is…don’t you? I am off to prepare for my day…hoping to minimize my talking to allow for healing. Make sure you finish you coffee (or tea) while finding your Silver Lining and Have a great day!
