Monday appears to be my catch-up day. That’s okay, as long as I’m aware of it I can fix the problem. And the problem? Well, having Superman and the kidlets; Snap, Crackle & Pop, home pretty much messes up my schedule. Working on posts ahead of time would be the answer (which was something I wanted to do anyway—so easy fix).
My best thoughts come to me in the early morning when I’m getting ready and getting my kids off to school. Then when I come in and turn on my computer and start writing… [crickets]
Now I’m almost three posts behind and I need to catch up and get ahead!
It’s Momma Monday so I should talk about my kids.
We had Pop’s last football game of the season on Saturday. Next week his team goes to the tournament and we’ll see how far they get. If they win this next one then we’ll have another one. If not then we can be done for the year and have our party. I’m trying to be more friendly with the other moms but I’m not that great at it. I’m not sure why. I don’t think I’m shy, per se, but I am wary of new people. That’s true. I don’t think that makes me shy, just cautious. Twice burned and all that…
Crackle is doing pretty well. We got his cast off last week and he is now back in a brace for a while. The doctor said we didn’t have to come back for 10 weeks and it was so far ahead that they couldn’t even make the follow-up appointment. He is going to school just fine most days, we’ve only had one “I won’t get on the bus” incident since they changed his pickup time to 8:30 am (actually it’s closer to 8:45, but whatever). We had a couple of tough days last week but we re-introduced one of his meds after he was off of it for a couple of weeks. That’s never good but he seems to be doing great now. Typical @$$ behavior but not so bad the teacher is calling me every day. I am calling that good. [thumbsup]
Snap is doing soccer. [sigh] Yes, I’m still disappointed it’s not football. However, on the bright side I’m thinking that the skills he will learn and hone by playing soccer will help him next year when he re-decides to play football again. [fingers crossed] We are looking for a job for him. He needs money and he is a very hard worker [shameless plug]. He is strong and very able-bodied. I haven’t checked his homework status in a few days, guess I should do that so I know if I should be freaking out. We have a 504 for him but he is doing pretty well. I still need to call and make sure that gets done.
Today I have been helping Princess write her resume. She needs to find a job. Still not exactly sure what her plans are. I heard some inklings of various new ideas but not sure how solid she is on any of them. What I do know is that I only have three children at home and my life is easier right now. I just want her to be happy.
I haven’t talked to Sunshine in a few days. She’s so busy and when it occurs to me to talk to her I know she is at work. Then when I think about it I feel like I’m bugging her. [sigh] She’s even talked to me about that. I kind of want her to come home but there is nothing here for her and I know that.
It’s sad. Babies grow up. Cuddle them now my friends.
Superman is doing fine. He has a little cold but went to work anyway. We got the Harley back on Saturday, Thank You Lord! So today I had a car! Woohoo!
I’m in the mood for Halloween themed stuff. I made a concoction of orange peels, cinnamon sticks and cloves; added water and boiled it on the stove until the house smelled yummy. Awesome!
I like fall.
