This post is about nothing in particular, just unorganized thoughts from my unorganized brain.
The weather was great today, close to 80 degrees and sunny. A strong breeze but it felt good.
Son #1 did okay at today’s track meet. He took two 3rd places. He was disappointed in himself. I was not because it was regional finals, the competition was hard and he competed against 8th graders.
Wee One took a nap today too! This was the highlight of my day. One whole hour, it was peaceful…sigh. The last 2-3 days Wee One has refused to take a nap. I cannot even begin to tell you how awful things are when Wee One does not take a nap.
Early this afternoon, my father-in-law (FIL) came over and mowed our massive yard. He just showed up, he was bored, and wanted to try out his spiffy new riding mower. The man is almost 77 yo and never stops, he just goes and goes….
Our yard was needing mowed badly. It was too wet to mow last weekend, hubby has had to work until nearly dark all week. I’m not allowed near hubby’s riding lawn mower (long story there). Otherwise, I would have already mowed the yard myself. I sure as heck am not push mowing it…maybe the ditches but not the whole yard.
I went outside and picked up all the toys, balls, bikes, and lawn chairs. FIL got busy mowing, Wee One and I left for the track meet early so we could take Son #1 some food before the bus he was riding left the school.
Why are kids starving right after school?
We arrived home from the track meet about 7:40pm, I was walking out to the barn and noticed my spinning bird yard ornaments had been plowed over and chopped up into tiny bits….all 5 of them! damn, I guess I forgot to pick them up and FIL mowed them down. I really liked them too…
Wee One and I were riding in the car to the track meet in a town about 15 minutes from our house, I looked over at him and he was singing outloud the AC/DC song playing on the radio (KMOD). He looked so cute, he knew the words and was tapping his feet to the beat of the music.
I said, “Wee One your so cute.”
Wee One never missed a beat, during a guitar solo he answered, “I know it.”
Sometimes, I wonder where Wee One comes up with his sayings….
This week has went by fast. I’m glad, it’s been one of those weeks where I cannot get my act together. I am not sure what my problem is, hopefully I am over it.
