My sons slept until about noon, then got up and played video games and messed around on the computer all day.
I got up at 6 and did two loads of laundry. I called the phone company to schedule an appointment because our phone keeps saying "check phone line." I called the dishwasher repair guy because our dishwasher is not working. I called the carpet cleaners and scheduled an appointment. I emailed the boys' sister and made plans to celebrate her birthday tomorrow. I took all the trash and recycling out to the alley. I finished getting my taxes ready for the accountant. I copied my taxes. I went to the post office and mailed my taxes. I went and helped with the t-shirt sales for the high school football team. I took my school shoes to the shoe repair shop to be re-heeled. I came back to the house and spring cleaned the tv room- washed walls, vaccumed behind the couch, and dusted (OK, so the basketball games were on in the background, but I really was working, and I only stopped to watch at the very end of each game). I hand washed all the dishes that I had found under the couch, behind the couch, down the side of the coach, etc., from the boys' endless stream of football friends because our dishwasher is not working. I went and got pizza for the boys and their friends.
And then my son told me I was lazy.
And I completely and totally lost it.
This was not one of my finer moments in mothering.
This is so well-written! Love the big block of text that echos the busy day...and then the short, separated lines at the end.
As a mother....maybe not your finest moment, but something I know I'd have done in that situation too!
Lazy? Hah! You did more this morning then I did all of spring break (or all of 2011 for that matter!)
Gotta love parenting teenager:-)
