I'll pay you with a cute dog picture.
Still here, thanks. First, my garbage really smells and I can smell it sitting here in another room...let me fix that...o.k. better. Mother's Day was the same as every other day, which is fine. FINE! In all fairness, my husband pinched something in his back and he hasn't felt good,and the whole no job or money thing has put a funk in our moods. Still, I just wanted some time off to work on the quilt or take a bath, no money needed. I would love to tell you stories of fluffy pancakes in bed and laughing faces, but that's not what happened. A lot of pouting and slamming of dishes. So, I googled, "I got nothing for Mother's Day." and someone posted something on Yahoo answers. I thought, who puts stuff like that on the Internet? Um. Anyway, someone responded about being grateful your children aren't in the hospital or your Mom isn't dead. I don't think that comment made the poster feel better. So why am I writing this here? I don't know. I have nothing else to say and that's what makes blogging difficult. How do you write something when you feel rather cranky? Do you want to hear this? Be honest, because it exhausts me.
We are in another transition phase, this is the last week of school and I feel sad about it. I know we won't see most of the kids and parents we have become friends with because they will go to different schools next year. I will miss the routine. It's been nice having the boys in the same school this year and I know it will be lonely for them in the Fall. I'm listing complaints now; none of my pictures are turning out, which is either me or my camera (probably me). I'm scared of the unknown - where or when my husband will get a job. I like things to be predictable - even if they are not the best situation because then I can work with what I know. I try to walk the dog, but she is so big now and pulls hard. She chokes herself and then quacks like a duck. I try all the positive training steps from TV, but it's not as easy as they make it look with editing and stunt dogs. It's really embarrassing, which is silly to say, but soon she will be dragging me down the sidewalk. I'm in a creative slump - trying to make some things for the Lost giveaway and they are all turning out bad. That's pretty much it, which for some reason writing it down makes me feel better. Thank you for listening.
