Today is Friday. I can not tell you how happy I am for it to finally be Friday because that means, tomorrow will be Saturday and The SM will be home. Did you know, it is 8:36 AM here in Utah? Right this very minute as I type this. In Austria it is 4:36 PM. I know. For a week now I have been counting forward 8 hours thinking of The SM. Tomorrow afternoon when I look at the clock, I won't have to count forward 8 hours anymore because he'll be sitting right next to me. Probably sound asleep from jet lag, but next to me.
It's been a long week. Going down with my health and then having my youngest Mr. J get so sick.... it has put a lot of responsibility on The Native's. Especially my oldest. He's under a lot of pressure right now in school trying to keep his grades up. Taking both high school and college classes means lots and lots of homework. Hours.
He's been helping me a lot in the evenings with dinner and getting little ones to bed. I've not been able to drive again except driving home after taking him to school. The Native's have been living on a lot of cold cereal this week...... which means our usual 8 gallons of milk per week ran out even faster than normal.
Last night Mr. B drove me to the grocery store to get some milk. It was the first day I felt the fog had started to lift and I was able to get out of bed and up and around. As we pulled into the parking lot, Mr. B commented about a girl getting in her car. He said that from where he was sitting, she looked pretty cute. Mr. B and I got out of the truck. Laughing, I told him that he better not walk too close to me then because beings as I was so young looking....... Mr. B started to laugh and said, and beings as I'm so much older looking....... and then he did something that shocked the patooties out of me. He sped up and caught up to me and put his arm around me and said he didn't care.
When a mother's teenager does something like this there is only one thing she can do. I bought him a bag of Cheetos and then proceeded to eat half of it with him.
What? The photos? What do they have to do with this post? Nothing actually. I was just wondering which one you like better and why?
