Letting Myself Enjoy Life

I enjoyed watching my son practicing his skateboard tricks in the driveway tonight.  I don’t usually let myself enjoy things like that.  I don’t know why.  It felt so nice for a change.  Usually all I can think of is “I just wanna go inside and go on the computer.”  I count the minutes until I can go in.  But it wasn’t like that tonight.  He usually gets upset because he’s not doing as well as he’d like, so he throws his skateboard around, yells and swears.  There was none of that tonight.  I told him how much I enjoyed watching him tonight.  He was happy about that.  Me too.

Till next time,

Dinner with my Daughter and her Boyfriend

In Editorials on August 28, 2014 at 9:36 pm

My daughter and her boyfriend stayed for supper tonight.  My husband and son don’t sit at the table with me, so it was just the three of us.  He seems nice enough.  He was very polite.

My daughter ate most of her supper then made herself a Hot Pocket.  She took a bite of it, then left the rest.  She left the other one sitting on counter, thawing out.  I had to put it away.  I hope she learns not to waste food once she gets out on her own!

Her boyfriend said that he’s gonna have a roommate to help pay the rent whenever he gets an apartment.  That would make three of them if my daughter moves in with him too.

I told him about going on Housing.  I don’t know if he’ll check into it or not.

My son went to his room when they were here.  I wanna get to know him better if my daughter’s supposed to be moving in with him.

He was wearing lots of wristbands.  I’ll have to ask him what they said on them next time I see him.

I had such mixed feelings about dinner tonight.  I was happy but sad at the same time.  Sometimes things remind me of other things which are very depressing.  Tonight was like that.  That probably didn’t make any sense but oh well!

My daughter said that she wouldn’t ask me for money tomorrow because her boyfriend gets paid.  So do we, thank God!   Even though we’ll be broke again as soon as we get some bills paid.  Same old story!

Once again thanks for listening.
