The kiddos are officially on Summer vacation! Friday was their last day and now I am the mama of a 3rd and 1st grader. I have to insert a proud mama comment about their awesome report cards. They did extremely well and they clearly take after me. ha! Now it is time to enjoy the short while that we have nice weather.
I am beyond jealous of Chubby Hubby not being employed at the moment. They get to do whatever they want this summer! This working full time deal blows. Maybe I could be the hero of our department by suggesting how shutting down for the Summer would save a lot of money in a tough budget year. Sigh.... I can dream. I will say this, about a week into being at home with everyone, I would be pulling out my hair and running for the liquor cabinet.
Yesterday we had a standoff in our 'hood. I was not aware of any hullabaloo until Chubby Hubby started screaming at the kids to get downstairs. He then announced that there were cops across the street that were sporting some shot guns, rifles, and the K9 unit. I did what every good mother would do, flipped on the TV for the kids then I grabbed my cell phone, computer, and camera to document what I was seeing.
It ended up being a 15 year old kid who had the brains of a gnat to break in to this house in the middle of the day in our nosy neighborhood. My neighbor saw him and immediately called the police. He was hiding out in the attic and he told police that he broke in to this house because he had to use the bathroom. Riiiiight. It may be wrong of me to celebrate this, but he left in an ambulance. He was not shot, but the police dog got him....and got him good! The poor family that lives in this house are brand new to the neighborhood and they are completely traumatized! I hope they don't move!
This was my view and if you look close you can see the police pulling a Jack Bauer.
Tomorrow I will be at the hospital all day. I will be receiving 2-3 units. As shitty as it is to be there all day, I am pretty excited because I can bring my computer and finally catch up with some of my blog stalking! It is almost like a vacation! Has anyone had this done? Words of wisdom?
Hindsight is always 20/20. Looking back at this past year, the struggle is now making sense. I can't believe that I didn't realize my iron was low sooner.
