what a rainy, gloomy weekend 03-19-2005 - 04:01 PM

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?

I know what you mean about wondering how the kids have been affected by things that you go through! Mine are grown and out of the house, so I am not referring (in my situation) to the recent hyst.. but other things throughout the years that have been mind-boggling problems. Because they are older now, and I can see the results- I will tell you I have some wonderful young adults as my kids. Strong, wise, can take what life dishes out and rise above it. they are also, kind and considerate of each other and me!
I know that sometimes I just wish that I could have made a better life for them, but arent we all in someways stronger and better people for what we went through?
Just a thought from someone who can see the results!!

thanks Stephanie.
I feel the same way. When I look back I may not have been able to give my kids alot of materialistic things, but have instilled alot of important values into them and are very much loved by us.they are always so nice and considerate and thoughtful. Several people have commented to my friends how they can tell that the Johnson boys are really loved by their parents and have done a really good job with them. I shouldn't feel bad about myself as a mother these last months.

MY son is growing fast too.Its a boy thing . you wonder where all that food goes to.

There were times whenI barked at my kids do you know what I have gone through these last couple of months ? I tink something finally stuck in . They are pretty good kids but i guess at that awkward age it didnt occur to them to offer to help out. Now they are rpetty good about magic wiping their room floors. and dusting on weekends .

I think your kids sound so matured . Good for you
