Sarah's gone down, under the weather, so I drove her to the doctor, receiving several calls from the elementary school. Finally I picked up the two pretenders, JoJo and Jonathan, if only to give the school nurse a break from their harassment.
Tabby and Nando needed booster shots, and Martin had an orthodontic appointment so by the time I got groceries also, here it is two in the afternoon with 20 breakfast bowls still in the sink and no laundry done.
I'm cutting myself a little slack.
I've been so stressed out for such an extended length of time lately, crawling back up on top slowly, but exhaustion has set in so strongly that I sleep in until six each morning. None of my usual four o'clock rooster response sessions.
The grown kids that are being so sweet lately, are being really outstanding, but in my 17-21 age group, we're experiencing the ups and downs of learning to live on one's own when one has a much younger emotional age. One might chronologically be 21 but around 6 emotionally.
When one becomes a poor example for the younger kids, one needs to pay one's own rent somewhere else.
I'm still undecided about what to do regarding a computer for me, I really don't make any kind of move or decision until I feel I've heard from God. I'm hearing nothing right now, no matter how many Best Buy online ads I peruse.
When in doubt...don't. OK. I get it.
Thank God we are getting a little rain and I have 1/2 pound of Chilean Silver garlic to go plant.
