Good Morning Company Girls!
Today is my day off! Actually, every Friday is suppose to be my day off because Megan usually goes over to the elementary school for her required day (so she stays on the register) and I can actually have a day, for me, to do just whatever I want. .....it doesn't always work out that way. I know that there are probably a lot of moms out there in blogland that would say...'must be nice, I never get a day off'....believe me, I've been there, done that..with over 25 children in the last 35 years. I've found that at my age, 58, being with a special needs child every day, all day long, can be extremely exhausting and I have to admit I always don't have the patience that I should have. During the week, quite often I feel like the kid in the candy store.....I keep thinking about all the things I can do on Friday and keep going back and forth ....I don't want to waste the day....I've learned that I must plan something, anything or I end up frittering the day away and then I am disappointed that I wasted such a special day. I will be glad when I don't feel that I must choose...choose rather to stay at home and enjoy the stillness of the house and puttering away at whatever I felt like or feeling desperate to get out of the house, going places, shopping without my usual shadow, having adult conversation (because when Megan is home...than I'm home with her or if we go out,) she's there...listening to everything....makes adult conversation a little difficult. Then when we get home she bombards me with constant questions about what she's overheard.
So today, I've made tentative plans with my sister,...we've both been so busy all week that we've not confirmed...we talked about going to Port Dover, because there's suppose to be a textile store there that has coloured backing for quilts and I'd like to have a coloured piece for my next quilt. Usually I just use cream or white, so a colour would be nice for a change.
I would like to add my best wishes for all the mothers....Happy Mother's Day! I hope the day is everything that you desire....I hope that your children take this day to recognize all that you do for them all the other days of the year!
