Jonah in my nearly-finished kitchen - Wish he had this energy in the am instead of at 11 at night~

One of those Days...

It's nearly noon here in California. My son Jonah just emerged from his room. Keep in mind, I put the dog in there because the contractor is finishing up. The dog was barking and generally wanting to get out. I was at the grocery store and Home Depot taking some stuff back. The contractor is here with a nail gun and a saw doing molding.

Jonah slept through all of that and he missed school. Now, I woke him up this morning, told him to get up NOW! And then I took my son and daughter to school. And I came home, plopped the dog in there and never noticed the lump in the covers. He's had Ferris Bueller's Day Off, except he didn't get out of bed, or have any fun.

He's lost video games for the weekend. But let me just tell you, I've had it with teenagers at the moment. I think I'm going to treat myself to that movie "Babies" today and remember when they were so sweet and cute, and did what you told them to. I still haven't turned my book in because those loose ends -- just haven't had the time to do them. You know how that is? You always plan and then life gets in the way. Not MY life, but other people's. And isn't that what motherhood is all about?

Pray for Diann, she's having another treatment this week. Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there. May you enjoy your day!

Such a funny story, K! I remember those days well when our kids were teenagers. The good news is they do grow up! :-)

Great picture of your son! The kitchen looks great. It looks like you got rid of the ugly floor too. :)

Wow, he's sure shot up! I still picture him as he was when we got together at my sister's. And, BTW, her eldest is finishing his Jr year in HS and was voted class president for next year. He's now a lot taller than her. It just all goes too fast.
Hang in there and enjoy the fun between the crazy teen chaos. Those will be the memories you keep.
Sending hugs.
Abundant blessings,

Oh my gosh, your sister's kids were so darling Jenny, that was a really fun day!

Yes, Betsy, the floor is gone, thank goodness.

Di, you look so cute in that picture!
