A morning nightmare for a mom, reviews for authors and AA New Leaf

Yesterday was horrid. My older boy refused to get out of bed thus missing his bus.  Says he’s sick but also is upset about current events at school.  Called Dr. they said they wouldn’t see him for a note for school. Who said I wanted a note? I yelled out loud alone in the car on my way home from dropping my younger son off at school 20 minutes away. I said terrible things about that person at the Dr.’s office who told the Dr. I wanted a note thus barring me from getting medical help for my son. Got home talked to my son, figures he ISN’T sick.  Took him to school, went to the grocery store to stock up on food for both boys (limited amount, money is tight right now), came home, put groceries away and got in bed. Stayed there for the whole day until it was time to go pick up my younger son.  I figured if I was in bed with the sheet over my head, nothing bad would happen.  Glad the rest of the day went smooth- well, as smooth as can be expected.  It is so much FUN being a MOM. I love my children and will forever, no matter how much gray hair sprouts from my head. On hot days it’s nice to get lost in a video game with my boys, Animal Crossing: New Leaf! Hugs and personal bubbles, Colleen

A Sunday of tears, smiles, laundry and reaching out to others!

Reading posts from friends on Facebook. Scary things happening in this world. Wish I could put safety bubbles around people to keep them safe but then we’d need bigger everything. chairs, cars, bus seats, imagine! Unless you could shrink the bubble to be like, a second skin but still keep you safe and alive.  Who’s the genius in the world today who will patent this idea? Someone has had to think of it way before little ‘ol me.  Laundry, one child playing his PS3, laughing, arguing, shrieking, yes he shrieks, and so much noise coming from that room. Happy day for him.  Shrieks, laughter, groans and yelling from my older son’s room as he loses a game and gets mad, then gets a new game that will connect with one of mine and we can play thanks to his Grandma, now he’s happy too.  That liquid in the hummingbird feeder gets very hot sitting in the sun, they still drink it but talk about a burned tongue and yes Hummingbirds have tongues.  I got so close yesterday I could see one swallow.  Of course the one with the red at its throat zoomed at my face and for a moment I feared it pecking me then I just stared in open curiosity before it went to the feeder.  I was cutting the roses, the yellow ones, right next to the feeder.  So beautiful.  

I couldn’t stop the tears as I looked through songs on youtube trying to find appropriate ones for a friend in need.  I wish everyone could send up a positive prayer for my friend Terry and her brother who REALLY needs it. Help ease his suffering and open God’s arms for him. Help Terry have the extra strength she needs to get through this. Amen.
