Just stuff


It is official. My husband has left me for bunch of middle-age men with golf clubs. For the past 10 years he has gone off twice a year with the guys. It used to be something I really looked forward to. As soon as I knew the date I would make plans to farm out the kids and have the house all to myself for the whole weekend. A wonderful thing for the mother of two who spends her days with a room full of 11 year-olds! It’s still a nice weekend but I miss Nick a lot more than I used to.

This will be a rambling post, no real point, so be warned. Nick emailed me yesterday and told me he was expecting my assignment this week. I really hadn’t been planning to write one. So I wrote him and I was pretty honest. Nothing really new or earth shattering, but I did tell him what I had said in my other post that I was feeling lonely. I got a real sweet email back from him and I do feel better. I will keep talking to Nick; I have too many friends out here that get on my case when stop. And I am grateful folks. I know me pretty well and without being pushed I know I just shut up and shut down. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

My baby is in high school! Mollie seems to be adjusting pretty well. I fact she has been in a better mood than usual lately. LJ is settling in at school. We got him another car, he doesn’t know yet. Nothing fancy or sporty but hopefully it will be dependable and safe. Of course LJ wouldn’t know one type of car from another. He just never cared. Mollie can tell you what each car that goes by is and let you know in great detail what kind she wants. Very different children!

My school year has gotten off to a good start. Much better than last year! By this time last year I have even had a death threat. Now out of my 75 students I am only having a problem with one! And he is only having a problem with me, not the 2 male teachers. He doesn’t like doing what women tell him to. There is no mom in the house. He wants to talk back and argue. But I feel sorry for him. Maybe I can show him that some women can be calm, consistent. I am trying to be kind and I have told him I will always treat him with respect but I will expect to be treated with respect also! Now if I can keep my cool!! Having a kid flare up in my face tends to piss me off. But he needs me so I am really going to try with him.

Okay I have rambled long enough. I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend. If you don’t have anything to do this weekend you could always write a Fantasy Friday story!! I have a few folks and they are HOT! But if we are going to be able to start this up again I am going to need more!! Anyone – everyone please give it a try and email me a story. I am hoping to get it started by October, so please let me hear from you! I am talking to YOU, fellow bloggers, friends without blogs, and you silent readers who may not even comment. Come on you know you have a story to share!! Real or fiction, trust me we don’t care! Send it to elisspeaks@yahoo.com

PK, have a good week-end, our labour day is the 1st of May.
So you are a golf widow, that has one positive advantage, it should improve his swing.
I cannot think of one lady teacher that I didn't respect, but that was a whole different world.
Warm hugs,
Paul.

Not too rambly, just an update on life. Have a great weekend!

If anyone can help that kid overcome the poor examples he has had so far, you can. Best wishes on that! I know what you mean about having Nick gone---I hate to be away from Spanky now.

Definitely know what you mean about husbands being gone now! PS will be gone for 5 nights this month with work. I'm not happy. I'm dreading it already. Oh well, makes it even sweeter and more precious when he is home! :-) Glad you talked/did your assignment with Nick! Hope you're staying on your diet! I have a feeling you already have some type of spanking in store! Wouldn't want to add to it too much :-)
Hugs!

Not rambling at all. It was good catching up with what's going on with you. That's funny about LJ. My son never cared that much about cars, either, and he hates to drive. Imagine a young boy hating to drive.

Keep talking to Nick (and us!)
*hugs* Suzy
