Touche, my child. Yes, she totally compared my grandmother to a horse!
Speaking of my Grammy, she seems to have perked up. The Hospice nurse found the source of her discomfort and it was a secondary issue. They resolved it and took measures to make sure it doesn't' happen again. The nurse told my mother she will not die anytime soon, so I should, hopefully, get my Christmas visit! Your prayers and kind thoughts are so appreciated!
Speaking of kind thoughts, I commented on my facebook page that I met "The Ex" last weekend. LawnBoy planned it so we would be dropping his children to her on the way to his holiday party. He said he thought I'd feel better if I was all dressed up. ~Smart Man~ It went fine, but there is a level of graciousness I try to extend to anyone ~even my children's stepmother~ who comes into my home that was not afforded to me. She wasn't rude, just not welcoming. Oh, and her boyfriend was wearing a cowboy hat...in the house!
Speaking of exes, mine is taking the children for Christmas. PHEW! Not that I didn't want them, but they knew they were going to his house and I didn't want them to be disappointed. He sent me a four paragraph lecture about all the things I was doing wrong and then did exactly as I asked at the end. You know, because I can't ever simply know what's best for the children since I'm only with them 95% of the time.
I am being sarcastic... and sound bitter... I will stop now, because he actually made me laugh with his shenanigans.
Speaking of laughing, The Boy did something blog worthy this week. I remember thinking, "Finally! Because it's been all The Girl with the one-liners lately." I'll be dipped if I can remember what it is.
On that note....
I remembered! My grandfather sent The Boy a ~very old~ book on football awhile back. He has to read non-fiction for school and has been working his way through it. He was getting so frustrated the other night with the illustrations that when along with the rules that he was almost yelling at the book. He seriously sounded like a man watching TV and yelling at the refs. I reminded him that the book was old and some of the rules had changed, but he was not to be appeased. He finally looked at me and said, "I have a lot of questions for the author of this book!"
Have a great weekend! More holiday parties on tap in my neck of the woods!
