It started yesterday, with requisite whining from the boys and fretting abut bus schedules and potential bullies from me. Worries all around about what Others Will Think. At the end of the day, everyone was satisfied. #1 reported multiple checkings out by pretty girls, #2 said he was left alone for the most part, but no one was mean, #3 displayed the 20- some odd phone numbers offered by girls who don’t know any better, and #4 announced a campaign to make his classmates less messy.
This morning the bus came at 6:30! SIX THIRTY AM! Damn! Everyone was busy brushing teeth and loading bookbags in anticipation of a 6:45 arrival (yesterday), so Sweet Daddio stood on the walkway and waved semaphore flags while everyone scrambled and I sounded like a platoon leader (MOVEMOVEMOVE!). She was kind enough to wait. Tomorrow we’ll know better, and be ready. And she’ll come at 7. You just wait and see.
I bought the doggies a treat today- rawhide slabs. They always fight over them so I got a whole sackful, and when I got home, threw them all down on the floor- 16 of them. Rosie carefully selected the smallest one and hid under a chair. Daisy gathered up the remaining 15 and hovered over them like a vulture, daring Rosie to approach. She remains there, now. Rosie is apologetic for having the temerity to choose one first rather than picking the leftovers. She is Japanese in her approach to things like that. Daisy has the German overdeveloped sence of entitlement.
It’s good to be returning to a routine. Now I have to get into a gym or a Bible study so I can meet some people.
