The teen cuddled me tonight. ♥️
Isn’t she lovely? 🥰
I was grateful to have homecoming as a distraction today. D and I drove them to Main Street for dinner and pictures, and then to and from the dance. In the interim, we took Jackson out for dinner, and that was also very nice. I love bearing witness to his and D’s silliness. Their relationship makes me so very happy.
This may be my one and only Homecoming. That’s how I have to think about things now.
Of sophomore year:
Of 6th grade/MIDDLE SCHOOL OMG
G’s gf took this pic:
It’s a privilege to be their mom.
Just got the text asking if the bf can come over again tonight.
I woke up feeling pretty good today. My energy is high (for me). I think today will be a good day.
On today’s agenda:
- Cleaning all the things.
- Finish up drafting a few legal docs.
- Taking the boy to get a much needed haircut. He def has my hair – well the hair I used to have pre-cancer. It grows quickly and is very thick. His dad is bald, and has been for years, so he got lucky.
- Picking up the girl from band at 4:30. I’m just waiting for her to ask if she can go to her bf’s house or if he can come here. Ugh. She is obsessed with this kid, and it is affecting everything she does (including her life goals – like she doesn’t want to go to college anymore, just wants to marry this kid). He was here last night. Had dinner with us. Then later they got busted getting it on – yep, yep, yep that happened. D is freaking out/furious/disappointed. I don’t know what to do with her anymore. There is a lot more going on that I am not going to share here, but none of it is good. She is quite the handful right now. I’m just lucky that she confides in me so that I can try to keep her from going completely off the rails. She does seem to take my advice to heart most of the time.
- After that, I have to pretty myself up for date night with my gf. We are going to Dave & Busters tonight. I’m so excited.
Tomorrow morning, I’ll be driving about an hour for an in-person court hearing. It sounds like I only need a continuance, so it sucks that this requires an appearance, but it will be sort of good to get out into the mix; even if it is for something fucking stupid.
I do hate the clerks down in this particular county though. The PA, too. They are all a bunch of dicks and they hate the “big city attorneys” and treat us like shit. One of them asked me once if I was stupid because I asked about one of their procedures – I’m serious. LOL forever. Fucking hicks. I bet I get the Delta Variant down there.
Anyhoo – I have high hopes that these cancer meds are actually working for me, and that is maybe why I am feeling better, and that maybe life will feel normal for a bit. I/we deserve it.
I’ve got 99 problems, but a kid ain’t one.
Until Friday anyway. LOL
And she has a driver’s permit.
Holy fuck we’re old, babe.
She was a mama’s girl for a long time, but now she’s a step-mama’s girl and it is the best. I’m so lucky. ♥️
