I don't blog a lot on work days. And then there is nothing much to blog about - which is a good thing. Monday is court and I have a really good feeling deep in my gut. Monday is also the full moon.
Without seeing bio the kids have been more talkative, more pleasant, more like kids. It is a joy to watch them blossom in such a short period of time.
Oldest is off at driver's ed. I will pick her up and then go pick up boyfriend. He will spend the evening and hubby will take him home in the cruiser on his way to work. Son has been asking to do a ride along for ages. Hubby finally asked his Sargent and he said it would be OK. So, son will be hubby tonight on patrol.
Son is also making dinner tonight. I put it on the calender and he looked up the recipe all on his own. We are having shrimp chowder (in a tomato based broth). I'm making a banana cake for dessert. Son lives by the calender and the rules. He thrives on routine. He will do well in the military. That would not be my choice of careers but it's his dream.
Youngest is bumming - none of her friends can come over. Her ears are healing nicely. Forgive me if I've already blogged about this. Bio had given youngest earrings (really ugly ones at that). I didn't say anything because I didn't want to knock her mom (well, not to her face). Youngest is not a girly girl and does not change her earrings or really take care of them. She should never of had her ears pierced but, bio did that to both girls as infants. Anyway, youngest came down after being put to bed about two weeks ago and said her ears hurt. I thought ear infection. She said no, where the earrings are. I looked at her ears. These were not child backings like I use with youngest but regular backings. The backings were pushed on so tight that the backings were inside the hole. Needless to say the hole is much smaller than the backing. I had to put tweezers in the hole and pull the backings off. I kept apologising to keep from crying. Youngest handled it really well. Afterwards I cleaned up the blood and all. She has no urge to put earrings back in and I wouldn't let her until they are completely healed any way. If she does want new earrings they will be good quality child earrings.
And today, everyone is home and safe!
