or is that just wishful thinking?! OMG, is it really going to melt (and, thus, flood) this week? I could not believe that we got more snow on Friday!
How was everyone's weekend? I visited with my mom and daughter, which was lovely. I cleaned my mom's townhome, did various errands for her, brought dd a care package and bought her groceries, drove them both everywhere they wanted to go, had some nice talks, and drove home. Phew! Back to work today. I can't tell if I need a root canal or my crown changed my bite, as I have been in throbbing pain for the last week. I'm too scscscscared to go to the endodontist to find out. I HATE root canals and the pain that ensues.
I just learned that my new work partner has the stomach flu, so I will be taking extra vitamin C and netipotting more frequently, as this means it's "going around." Yuck. I really need to go bac k to ballroom dance, but, frankly, I am too tired at the end of the evening to drive the extra hour for that class! I am teaching my girlfriend/customer linedancing on Wednesday since she is now recoverred from her foot surgery and bronchitis. At least that will be some dance for me this week. And, I have early morning yoga to look forward to tomorrow. :D
My daughter informed me that my son did not get into the college he applied to (where dd goes, where I and ds's dad went to undergrad, and where my parents both taught.) Perhaps that is his first major, negative consequence for not following my "life rules," as I would have researched which college for him to apply to, had him talk to an admissions officer BEFORE he applied, to ensure that he got in. Or maybe he doesn't see it that way. <sigh.> I will always love ds, even though he has poor behavior. It's been over two years since he communicated with me, despite the text messages and presents I have given him over those two years. Do you think I should try to go to his highschool graduation? I dunno. It breaks my heart, but I cannot enable poor behavior. For now, I will choose to focus my energy on my daughter who is doing quite well, and is choosing positive behavior. My son is definitely his father's child. Speaking of which, dd informed me that my ex is taking me back to court. Ugh. He must want more money. I just hired my new lawyer last week, so we shall see what comes of this... Oh, I also learned that dss also did not get accepted into the college that dd goes to. It's one of the top colleges in the country for engineering... What a blow to both boys....aaahhhh, well, they are both learning the consequences of not listening to their parents and studying more...plus, dss is not my child, and refused my help, so, what can I do?! Enough venting. Make it a great day, everyone!
