The worst it has ever been. I do not know why I take this many pictures of my
lake swamp backyard. Perhaps because I feel as though I am on the ark and about to float away? We just need two of every animal and we are ready to go.
Or perhaps it is because I want to show people what gets tracked into my family room by HRH Shad Roe the Dog. Or perhaps it is because y’all should grab a suit next time it rains, because there’s a new swimming hole in town.
Maybe I am just avoiding the truth of what is going on in my life. Let’s see…family moving several states away? Check. Family with marriage issues? Check. Husband with an idiot for a father? Check. Dog with health problems? Check. Kid who has meltdown in classroom during Valentine Party in front of EVERYONE and then refuses to participate in games? Check. Bugaboo has ten days off until his next school day? Check. Car with problems so we are thinking of buying a new one? Check. Aunt Flo? CHECK. Trying to figure out the meaning of life and what the heck I am supposed to be doing here? Check. Maybe it is because Bugaboo is finally making great progress (better receptive language, more vocalizations and more signing!) and I am hungry for more? Check.
So you know what this means. Yup. I’m considering running to be on a committee for the Home and School Association. Yup, I am one of those. I like being involved in the school and I volunteer for every event. This is a great way to stay in touch with the school, teachers and other parents without being controlling and obnoxious (well, at least it will come across as organized and involved).
Go DG in 2008. Vote for me.
