Thanks Mom!

I really do have a great list of friend!

Yesterday, as I went to lunch with a girlfriend, I was counting my blessings that I have a list of friends that I can call pretty much anytime and unload my heart if I need to or laugh with or just play.  I love that!  I have friends of many different ages… my age, older and younger.  They add so much to my life.  So… if you are my friend, I love you and today am thanking God for you.

There’s so much floating around this head of mine.  I am bursting at the seams with so many thoughts.  They are all over the place!  It’s all good, though as it is FRIDAY @ 4:27 pm, pizza is for supper on paper plates and my jammies are coming on and I have a book awaiting me and tired children that I hope will veg out and everyone will relax!  There is a bug floating around but no one is really sick but it seems everyone feels a little off.  Today was a nightmare getting all the bodies out the door!  Josh was the last one out and the only job he had was to put on his shoes and get to the truck.  I looked at Josh wandering in seemingly ssssssssssssllllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwww motion… and yet as I checked his foot wear noticed that he had TYLER’S size 10+ shoes on his feet! Sigh.  This child…

In the truck, after dropping off two of the boys for jujitsu,  with just Max and Jordan, I said, “Thanks for saying thank you for your lunches today!”  Rather than the usual boring sandwich, I went to Wendy’s and got the boys a spicy chicken meal for a change of pace.  Max said, “Thank you”  Then a few minutes later he looked at me, with puzzlement on his face… “Why is it so important to you that we say thank you?”  So I replied that I was rushing around and took time out to bring them a special lunch and it makes me feel happy to know they appreciated it.  He looked at me… and said, “OK? Thank you.  I appreciate it.”

Max made me laugh as he really is my child that is so practical and doesn’t let emotion often dictate things.  Life seems to be so cut and dry.  I am sure that he really looks at me as a little crazy.

Boys are so different than girls.  Since I am their first experience of the female gender… I am trying to break them in.  Slowly.
