It is a good day today. A day where my life was simple and laughter and love abounded. I know there are many who do not share the joy I experience on a regular basis. I have so many things to be thankful for and so much of it beyond my capability to express my thankfulness for.
I am gainfully unemployed, as far as the whole “collect a paycheck” thing goes and I honestly couldn’t be happier. And I have no intentions of wandering back that direction again. I had just enough time in my day for the things that I wanted to do, plenty to do tomorrow and I’ve just discovered the TV show “Crusoe”.
Interesting. An awful lot of flashbacks and bad teeth to contrast with an affirmative action “savage” Rambo with plenty of knives and Mr. Perfect Teeth aka nice abs Crusoe all set in the Pit of Despair, a tropical island. Oh, and did I mention that Mr. Crusoe could make a submarine out of a paper clip and a coconut? Makes MacGyver look like a preschooler.
Like I said. Interesting.
Other news… my oldest has discovered the scientific reason for why dogs sniff butts and my younger son giggles every time he reads “but” and hesitates when he says “as”. I keep saying “A..Z…” not ASS, but in time…
Speaking of Pebble 2. I think he may be dyslexic and I need to have him tested for that and some other stuff. Praying for wisdom. That was a major reason why I quit my job. I wanted to make sure I have the focused and dedicated time to evaluate and dedicate to his education. One of his most critical struggles is that he lacks confidence. He tends to lapse into younger behavior, which while it is extremely endearing to his mother, is impeding his growth and development.
Memo to self: Avoid onions for lunch if you plan to spend a great deal of time up close and personal helping your child sound out long words… This will make them gag and mock you. And will inhibit said phonics being learned while you laugh and hold them down to tickle them and breathe onions in their sweet little faces.
Hey, I’m just the grown up here, I’m not required to be mature too!
