I am stealing Mark's "Use a Song title for a Post title" gimmick today.
Well it's Thursday of the week my Daughter came home for Spring break.
Do you know what my first thought this morning was?
I should have started drinking this week long before today!
My week has been that good.....so far.
It hasn't been bad, it's just been strange.
I have lots to do around here but the daughter's current state of affairs just has me spinning my wheels and wondering what is coming next.
I just sit here all day doing genealogy research(looking for some stability in my past perhaps?), playing free cell, listening to Pandora, reading blogs and contemplating writing something.
I only get up from the computer to go sit in front of the tv or deal with an immediate need like making a meal or dealing with the dogs or doling out money to needy teenagers.
Oh, I did spend some time outside yesterday as it hit 60 something here.
But I hardly even noticed anything.
So daughter has been going to doctor appointments and filling up prescriptions(5 so far!) and using all the gas in my car. Heck, I don't even have to leave home to spend money lately, do I?lol
Add in that #2 Son has been moody as hell and not very pleasant to deal with this week. He and Daughter do NOT get along at all and haven't for the last few years. And he is taking the opportunity with my being preoccupied with her stuff to fall down on his chores even more than he already does.
#2 is suppose to load/unload the dishwasher. Here is what I found in the kitchen when I came down this morning.....
Daughter has had a chat with the community college folks this week and she goes today for another chat with the baby Penn State folks(one of the many PSU satellite campuses around PA).
Then we sit down tonight and hash it all out and try to figure out what she wants to do after she finishes this semester at her current school.
It's not helping me not feel on edge about all this since the few in real life I have told(mostly family and our physician who she job shadowed with)are surprised and speechless at first.
I have to keep reminding myself that it's her life and no matter what I think and no matter how much I worry, I can't make these decisions for her. I may feel she is making a mistake by choosing what path she decides to go down but I have to let her go her own way.
She needs to make mistakes and learn from them. I just hope she takes to heart the lessons they present and that we don't regret the financial hits this will cost hubs and I......and her.
