Seems the posts I’ve been writing as of late are completely on the fly. Normally, I type them up in word, edit the crap out of them then transfer over to this space. But, just when I feel like I have a good solid hour or two to get something written, life interrupts and says…”hey, what do you think you’re doing? You need to pay attention to ME!” and like a kid throwing a temper tantrum, focus is diverted.
Today started with a text from the boy asking if I could bring him food as he was STARVING. Never mind that I was calling up the stairs at 6:30 for him to catch a bus in 10 minutes. In answer to your question, yes, he was still asleep and yes, he did roll out of the house on time. What he did not do is eat breakfast before leaving. Good thing I still pack his lunch every day.
Which brings us back to “Ma, can you PLEASE BRING ME FOOD.”
My response was to eat half of his lunch and save the rest for later.
It is to be noted that he is a bottomless pit that never seems to fill, so he complained that it wouldn’t be enough.
Apparently, if a student forgets a lunch and tells the lunch staff so, they are handed an apple and water and that is it.
Then the phone rang and it was the older sibling….crying that her eye is swollen and can I make a doctor appointment for her. Sometimes I wonder if having college so close is a good thing.
So, today posts are put on hold (for the moment) so I can pick up my daughter, bring to the doc, and of course, I can’t let the boy go hungry, so I will drop off some bread to go with his apple and water.
Now time for me to hit the shower.
Happy Friday to you….I hope it is going better than mine so far….
