ahhhh Friday. I have no idea why Friday means anything to me…seriously my days are basically all the same…especially in the summer. But I suppose it is the thought that counts.
I will pretend that I have the weekend off. 🙂
We have had a fairly good week here at Casa Day By Day….no real injuries…oh, well there was this ONE incident right here:
Lets do a bit of math:
You add one 13 year old PLUS one newly refurbished golf cart and what do you get?
The above picture.
ugghhh. What is a parent to do? Scream? Yell? Holler? Beat? Shank? Juvenile hall? Disown?
Nah….That is how my Dad rolled. I am doing much better I have to say….
Although it would feel good to scream my head off at the time….that does you no good in the long run. The damage is done. I did slam a few doors and shot the look of ‘what the hey were you thinking?’…….
The prospect of not driving the golf cart for a long, long, long time, well that is punishment……and me reminding Linds how much the repair will cost and she will DO all the extra chores I ask with NO ‘face’ or whining at all….that will last a long, long, long time.
AND your entire family INCLUDING your 15 yr old Sister will never…ever let you live it down. I think this little incident will be brought up FOREVER, including the wedding montage video in about 12-16 years.
Not to mention we will all recall this again at the DMV in a few years too…..
I think since this happened LAST Saturday…she thought I was not going to blog about it. WRONG. 🙂 I love you Linds.
Linds and I are heading across the East Coast again on Sunday to drop off the visiting dogs and since we are already over on that side of the state….we are going drive a bit farther south and visit my Grandma too. We have not seen her since Easter. (Coach and Lo are off on their goal to tour all the softball fields in Florida, I think they have just about hit them ALL by now.)
I called Grandma last night to let her know I would be coming and she had more complaints than usual: Her young friend (87) just had a stroke and is not doing good; Grandma’s bowels are not moving well; she has been confined to her wheelchair all of her waking hours, Florida Power & Light is robbing her, Her sinus’es are acting up (they have been acting up since I was born) etc…..
She told me: “Suzanne, don’t get old, whatever you do, don’t get old. It is NOT worth it. Really. avoid it.” She is 96. and I think she may be on to something….**my feet are killing me right now**
I hope she feels better when we get there on Sunday.
Happy Friday ya’ll.
I hope your weekend is filled with those you love, NO pain, and non-crashed fences.
