I woke up early this morning hoping to do something fun, being my last days off before returning to work. I looked out and saw how nasty it looked. GGGRRR!!! The last couple days had been beautiful, but my boys were in school and I wanted to do something outdoors with them.It was not to be this weekend.
I ended up driving a long, long distance to a big flea market. They have a really neat pet supply booth there. I wanted to look for certain things for my 55 gallon aquarium and wouldn't you know it, they were out of that stuff. All that way and couldn't get what I needed. I ended up driving miles and miles back towards home and stopping at a shoe store. My almost 14 year old was with me and needed new gym shoes for track. He hadn't told me how tight his gymers had gotten in the last few months. He didn't want to worry me, because I had been through so much, including money issues. What a sweetheart. I bought him new shoes. He needed 2 sizes bigger. He has grown terribly fast this school year.My three oldest boys wear a size 15 and now my baby wears a 13. And people wonder why I need to work. LOL It takes alot to keep up with their clothes and food.
Thinking back I wonder how much me being off has disrupted their lives. I feel guilty about it, but had to take care of myself at the same time. It has been alot more than I bargained for.I don't want to ever go off again for medical reasons, but I know I have a couple things that will need taken care of later on.Hopefully nothing majorand a good year down the road.
I feel so blessed to have my boys. They are all sweethearts and I know they really love me and care about me and they know I think the world of them. What else could a mother ask for?
