I have nothing earth shattering today. Nothing life changing. Nothing profound. Nothing thought provoking. If you want profound, beautiful, thought provoking messages today, I guess you should visit TangledLou. I wish I could write like her, but, alas, I'm just a mere mortal, and sometimes this mortal brain has nothing much going through it.
My husband and I had dinner with my sis-in-law and her family yesterday. She has four children, ranging in age from 14 to 5. We were sitting around the dinner table and my husband was talking about how school was going so far. He mentioned that there were a few kids who were already having trouble. One of them is a kindergartener. Every day when his dad drops him off at school he cries. And cries. And cries. (The kindergartener, not the dad.) My 8 year old niece heard this and said, with a disgusted tone, "Oh for heavens sake!!". This is the same 8 year old who showed me where the bathroom was and said, "Don't forget to use the spray." Oh, for heavens sake!
I brought my husband lunch today. Afterwards, I walked out to my car, which was parked in front of the school. A Subaru Outback pulls up, with radio blaring, the boom boom boom from the speakers filling the street. It was rap. I hate rap. Anyway, The car parks, and the driver gets out. To my surprise, it was an old (and I mean O.L.D.) lady. First of all, it just seemed wrong in the first place to have that annoying boom boom boom coming from that particular car. Second of all, . . . . an OLD LADY??!! Oh, for heavens sake!
And that's all I got today.
