It was the literal calm before the storm. I haven’t been writing or keeping up with my fave blogs lately. My intention was/is not to give it up. I was just taking some time to sort through this funk I’ve been in. Last night I seemed to have finally come out of it as I was sitting on my back balcony, doing an on-line class from UBC called The Science of Happiness.
Angus and Pacino, (my kitties) were at my feet, the crickets were chirping in the background. I took a minute to listen and look around. I was in my element, learning something new. I said out loud “Thank you, God.”
I have been praying lately that the loneliness inside would go away. That I find a sense of purpose and contentment once more. I even asked if He had forgotten about me. Could He please send a little excitement my way?
Apparently, I should have been WAY more specific with the type of excitement I had ordered. Thirty minutes later my phone rang and it was my beloved prodigal, asking if he could move back home.
Seriously, God? This is your idea of a joke, right? Or maybe a lesson for me to shut my big yap when there is an absence of drama and to enjoy the peace that no so long ago I had been praying for night and day. Point taken.
Aaaanyhoooo….seems that the honeymoon stage is over for the couple that moved in together way too fast. Hey, I love my kid. I also love him enough to not sugar coat some of his decisions.
So what’s the issue with my son and his gal pal? By the looks of it, he wants to settle down and she is still the party girl. She works odd hours, so they are never really together all that much. She finishes work at about 10pm, and apparently has taken to hitting the bars with her friends afterwards and crawling in at the wee hours.
Did I mention she has a four year old child? So not only does my son work in masonry and restorations, he is also a glorified manny (male version of nanny).
I’m minding my business and am being a sounding board for my son. In my head though, I’d love to shake little run around Sue like a rag doll. Maybe throw in a smack up side her head, too.
You’ve got a four year old at home, dumbass. In case you forgot, you’ve got a pretty decent guy too. He’s gainfully employed, doesn’t run around, loves you, your kid loves him. Wake the fuck up!
I’m not sure what is going to happen. Hopefully they will be able to resolve their differences and be on the same page moving forward. Or at least be able to finish the term on their lease in an amicable way.
Never a dull moment.
