The weekend started out rather crappy with the drive home at noon on Friday but it has gotten better, I got to see THE GRANDS! Which ALWAYS makes life better!!!
For those of you who do not have grands yet. Let me tell you it is well worth the wait! For one thing, you enjoy them more than you did your kids because you know now that matters and what does not. What is life threatening and what is a learning experience. AND THAT ALL THE MISERY YOUR KIDS DEALT YOU IS GOING TO COME BACK TO HAUNT THEM TENFOLD!! IT IS A JOYOUS OCCASION, TO SAY THE LEAST!! You may not laugh out loud at that moment, but I'm tellin' ya, right now, YOU WILL LAUGH!You may hold it in until you get in the car to go home or you may have to go to the bathroom and stuff a towel in your mouth, but you WILL laugh. Promise. It is the BEST laughter too! So for those of you who are yet to be, know your time is coming. One day. You know the old saying: Good things come to those who wait, IT IS TRUE. Ask any grandparent.
Then yesterday afternoon, my granddaughter and my youngest daughter came to make boo bags too. Originally, all the grands and I were to get together and make them but the boys' dad had plans for the afternoon so I went to do the boys before their football game. (I try not to invade on his time with the boys.) Dad and wife will take them to deliver them. THAT is soo much fun! To watch the kids deliver these things! You have to sneak up to the house, set the bag(s) down, have your escape plan already mapped out, then knock on the door or ring the door bell and ruuuuuuuun like all get out! The last time the boys and I delivered bags they thought it was tooo cool to dive through the car windows! THAT'S the part they remember the most is knocking and running! NOT necessarily MAKING the bags but the delivery!
Then a kid came by selling cookie dough. I bought two. (One to bake and one to eat.) Chey's gonna come out and help me bake 'em. I must say she better get here quick because the last time I did this, I don't think I baked A SINGLE COOKIE. I ATE IT ALL OUTTA THE BUCKET. I LOVE COOKIE DOUGH!!Life is gooooood!!
One day I'm gonna grow up. Really I will. Just not yet.
Actually I was a pretty serious person while raising the kids on my own. I know this is hard for some to believe, but really it is true. Honest. But now that they are all gone. . I want to absolutely goofy! I want to live and laugh and act stupid! Well, unless some holier than thou, moronic, PIA, lady driver, with light brown, shoulder length, hair, with glasses, driving a blue wanna be a SUV gets in front of me and starts giving me hand signals and stomping on the brakes, trying to get me to hit her, (not that I was taking notes) gets in front of me on the highway. Nah, not a laughin' matter then. (BUT IT IS PAST! Right? Maybe? Sorta? Kinda? . .)
Hope you kackled today.
