This post will be short. I don't have very many random things going on right now. But, who knows, I might surprise myself....
Actually, I really do have a lot of things I want to write about. But they are all deserving of their own post, so it'll have to wait.
I am heading off in about 25 minutes off to Park City to party it up with my Mom and sisters. You see, for the past zillion years or so, during Labor Day weekend, the city of Midway hosts Swiss Days--a huge crafty/artsy/home decor expo. It's fun.
You may be surprised that I go to something like this, since I'm the farthest thing there is from crafty or domestic. But, it's a fun excuse to spend time with my sisters, plus the kids get to stay home and spend some quality time with Dad. (Thank you C!!)
I haven't packed or anything. I should probably be doing that instead of this.
So, today, being the first official Friday at school for TJ, since he's in kindgergarten and didn't go last week, and since Friday is an early-out day hear, and the afternoon kindergarteners go a little early.....whew! (deep breath)....I wasn't sure what time the bus comes.
Well, long story-short, we missed the bus by about 30 minutes. See, my brain tumor told me that school started at 11:50 when really, the morning kids got out at 10:50 (info pulled from the archives of my memory from when KJ was in morning kindergarten), and afternoon started at 11:30. Duh!
So, I had to drive TJ to school. I dropped him off at his class, and while we were heading down the hallway, I reached for his hand. (Note: he usually always holds my hand when we're going somewhere) He immediately pulled away, and whispered, "Mom, you can't hold my hand! That's embarrassing! I'm too big for that!"
Apparently my little boy is all grown up and has to save face at school.
So, then, after I dropped of TJ, I noticed that KJ was at lunch, so Peter and I thought it would be nice to go into the lunchroom to say Hello.
So, we found KJ sitting with her friends, eating, so I walked up to her gave her a hug and said Hi.
She turned her head away, like she didn't know who I was, and breathed, "I'm ignoring you." She refused to acknowledge me after that.
So, what happened to my sweet little children who idolized their mother? I was sure that I had at least until 6th or 7th grade before my very existance irritated my children. Not at 5 and 7!
Today, I had lunch with my roommates from college. These were the first girls I ever lived with after moving away from home. It's been 12 years since I've seen them. (Thank goodness for facebook!)
It was great to see you Becca and Sonya!
(Sorry, no pictures--yet) Sonya is going to email one to me.
That's all. Yes, I'm still dying. No, I have no idea what it is. I'm thinking maybe colon or pancreatic cancer. And of course the brain tumor. I'm going to have to name it soon, since it has taken on a personality all it's own. Any suggestions?
Well, gotta go pack. Bye.
