One day closer to the weekend.
Thursday is just kind of hanging out there.
Not too much is said unless you get a long weekend and it starts on Thursday!
Although it seems to usually be a pretty decent day when I think about it.
For example, tomorrow I just have to do a bit of work, drive to the country, write and enjoy life!
At least I am trying to put the positive spin on it.
The boy leaves for his camping trip today.
I did get to see him last night at karate though. He got his green belt. I’m both proud and impressed as he is a handful and most of the time he does what he’s told and follows direction. Of course not ALL the time. He’s almost 5 and is constantly on the move and in conversation!
I told him I would come and he would go home with daddy or his other grandmother and he was fine with it. I told him when he came back from his week vacation with them that we would go to the beach and he ran yelling though the house, “We’re going to the beachhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!” Yes, just a touch excited and loving the beach like his mama!
But then he cried and said he didn’t want me to go home without him.
Even though I KNOW he is going through this phase of turning on the tears to get what he wants, it kills me a little inside to not be able to say, “Ok kiddo, let’s go with me.” It isn’t how it works with this scenario and he knows it too. And not that he gets away with it around me, I invented the “turn on the tears” to try and get what I wanted when I was his age!
So I sat in the car and shed a few tears, then went and got my mama and we had a lovely dinner at the Olive Garden,
The boy is camping with his other family, probably being like lord of the flies and eating the filling out of the Oreos and putting them back in the package and having a blast.
I am working and writing and trying to find a bit of peace in my mind.
I hope you are able to find a bit of peace and/or sanity today as well.
Or if you’re starting your weekend early, please have 2 for me!
We are almost to the end of this crazy week!
Never forget to Keep Hope Alive!
Have a fabulous Thursday and stay graceless my friends!
