So much to say but for now…daughter starts ‘regular’ school tomorrow. This is a good thing. All interested parties are a double thumbs-up. I just went in to have a moment with her – a prayer & a blessing for her to start this new part of her little life. Didn’t happen. She was deaf, resistant to turning over her iPad & to make matters worse, neville apparently had escaped the confines of the laundry room (my remedy for cold weather/persnickety beagle/need for all of us to sleep), run upstairs & was frisky over the shenanigans…all this was fueled by 9th grader who wanted to say goodnight to her little sister (code for ‘I want to rub in the fact that I don’t have school till Tuesday) but was laughing hysterically at the antics – neville was growling, 8th grader couldn’t hear, I was freaking out because I didn’t want him to bite her. Geez.

I have the iPad tucked away. Neville is
Back in the laundry room. No prayer was said. No blessing was bestowed. No touching mother daughter mention was had. 9th grader is in bed. 8th grader is now In bed after getting fussed at by her dad. I’m going to pray anyway. And be thankful I’m sober. Peace.out.
