Yes, so I don’t have a lot of time today, I should be doing a lot of things & I haven’t done much of anything, mr 7 took some scissors to his head yesterday while his sister was (not) watching him & I was at work. So among other things I have to shave his head. He & his older sister also both need some more clothes to start back to school in. ( Miss 10 is more than prepared thanks to hand me downs & Goodwill!) The pictures are new, cute & take a bunch of space, well the
one of the younger 2 is cute, miss 16 is cute but moody & has not been pleasant the last few days, mostly because of school coming up & the boyfriend thing. He’s away, she’s here. Work is work as always, I’m STILL having trouble getting back into the swing of things there, but at least I’m not having nightmares about the computer programs anymore (well, at least not more than once a week!) It occoured to me yesterday that the last 2 days were the first time I went to work & did my job with out really thinking on my way in there, ‘damn, I have to use that stuipd computer program’ I just went in, did my job & accepted that the program we use now is what I’m using to do it. I consider that a breakthrough of sorts & it helps that by the end of the year everyone in the whole call center is going to be using the computer program from hell- Comfort in the misery of others- yes, that’s just Lovely!
Something Miss 16 could totaly get into I’m sure.
In other news everything is quiet, Chrissie’s scheduled to be moving next week, I have mixed emotions about the whole back to school thing (August 17 here in SW VA – my county is always the earliest of the early!) On the one hand I will miss the kids company, if I feel like going somewhere on my days off I have to go alone (NOT always a bad thing- my kids don’t belong in antique or craft stores) or wait until they get out of school in the afternoon. Also I do enjoy getting up on my days off in the morning to quiet & wandering around doing what ever I want with out any concern for what the kids are doing or how it imacts what I want to do (ie: waiting for the computer or the tv or the BATHROOM!) & I like knowing someone else has care of them, once they get on the school bus I don’t have to worry about if they’re punching each other, need to go to the bathroom or need a drink of water, I get a BREAK from fulfiling all their needs, wants etc. Heck, as for the drawback, where they’re not available to do stuff while they’re in school that’s the best reason for having Saturdays off like I do- that’s what Saturdays are for!
