pork chop

Not the best ever weekend for me
I felt like the kid whose dog wouldn't play with him
even with a pork chop tied around his neck!
But Mariah and Terry came over
 and Caitlin and Thomas (her sweet little boyfriend) watched the MTV awards with me.
 I enjoyed that.
I went to visit my friend Dell
who was my ally against the world
when she lived next door to me.
 We haven't see each other much in awhile
so it was nice to find that common ground again.
Yesterday I spent about 10 years grocery shopping with my mom.
It's a privilege to help her.
 I love that I'm able to
 but she gets really confused
 putting up
and bringing back
the same jar of peanut butter
 5 times
becomes less humorous
as the time goes by!
Then it was Caitlin's family night
to put on their cheer dance at school.
If I am not good
 and I die
 and go to hell
I will have to keep up with my mom
who wanders
and Tom
 who has had a few beers
in a crowd
that demands a certain amount of decorum
throughout eternity!
So today I am going to Panama City
to see that same dance
at cheer camp
a 3 hour drive
to see a 3 minute dance
I love my child!

Awww yes thats what we do when we love our children but you will always remember it and she will too. I heard almost this same story about a mom yesterday. There will be a star in your crown. Paula

The scary thing is we still end up going the mile for our kids even after they have left the roost and they're on their own...(Hugs) Indigo
