All week I have been trying to post, but it has been crazy busy at home, at work, and pretty much everywhere else. I was reading a friend's Facebook status and she was saying she only had one day this week to relax. She was asking another friend to go out for lunch and a pedicure. I thought to myself, hmm...I haven't had a pedicure in 8 years. I am lucky if I get a haircut every 6 months! Which I am coming up on right now and my haircut girl is about to have a baby! Gotta get in there. Even when I am off for the summer, we are so busy with activities that I don't have time to relax. And, if I have time to relax I should be organizing my disaster of a house. So, no relaxation time. I guess I am envious. Not a good trait! I love my life and be thankful for what I have.
Indy is giving me a run for my money. It has been happening for a long time. He has been sassy, rude, disrespectful, unmotivated, pretty much just a real stinker! I can't figure out what to do with him. And when I am already at my wits end with him, I find out that he has been buying double lunches at school. I realize this because I got an email that his lunch account was low and that should not be because it wasn't too long ago that I sent in a check. So I look at his meal history (love www.lunchmoney.com)! That stinker has bought double lunches 4 out of the last 5 days. When he gets home from school I look in his backpack and find a new copy of the second 39 Clues book. I have not given him any money for the book fair and question him as to where he got this book. He tells me his friend gave him $20. I am so angry, my head is about to explode. So today, he will march his butt into the book fair and try to return this book by explaining that he borrowed money from a friend and he will then give his friend's money back. Luckily, I am friend's with the mom so I can easily check up on the transaction! What were you thinking, Indy?
I can't really think anymore. I have a cold and it is obviously affecting my brain. I am so overwhelmed again with work and home. Thankfully, my husband is finished teaching Math Power Hour this afternoon and I will have him home most days at the usual time, which is good because, I feel like I am on the edge of losing control again and I just got it back! Sounds like life to me!
