My grandson seemed to have a good birthday. He didn't want a cake, he wanted cheesecake so his mother took him shopping to pick out what he wanted (what she had gotten for him didn't fit) for his birthday present and then to Cheesecake Factory by himself for one on one time. He seemed to like being treated as more of an adult this birthday. It's hard to believe that he is almost grown. Time goes so fast.
My middle grandson is beginning to act so much more responsibly. This is the second time this week that he has taken on responsibilities without being asked when for the past couple of years seems like he whines and gripes and is surly if he is asked to do something. Youngest burst a squeeze type stress ball and it made a big dark blue blob on the living room carpet. I was cooking dinner. Without being asked the middle boy just calmly stopped what he was doing, went and got a pan of hot water and some towels and went to work and told me to finish what I was doing. I was almost surprised that when I walked into the room he had almost all the blue blob out of the carpet without soaking it in the process. We finished getting the blue out and put towels down and he jumped up and down on it until it was dry. It looks fine this morning and I am so proud of him.
That dreams are just dreams. I dreamed that I hit a young boy riding a bike as I was driving on a multilane highway. I managed to get off the highway and turn around to come back. He was moving and talking when I got there but I woke up so I never got to see if he was indeed going to be okay. My whole day has had a feeling of doom and gloom over it because of that dream.
School started back today. Schedules can resume. I may fight them but I do much better with schedules.
It's so quiet here. My ears seem to be relieved but the quiet is kinda hard to get used to after having three and four boys running around here for two weeks, not to mention that the weeks before there was construction going on here. No wonder my ears have been hurting.
Krista has her shoulder surgery scheduled.
Paula got her job offer and has resigned the place that was making her miserable.
Sue gets more time with Scott.
