It is June? Where did May go?

Wow, I am stunned to find June has barged right on in – shooing May right out the door!  I was so enjoying May – and now it’s gone for another whole year!!  There were lots of good things about May – tulips blooming, lilacs blooming, trilliums blooming – lots of blooming in May!  My word we even had socks blooming in May!  This was my first year to participate in Amanda’s Bloomin’ Feet sock extravaganza – boy am I happy I signed up!  This swap will remain on my “must do” list for the fall when Toasty Toes comes around!  There is something very theraputic about knitting a pair of socks for someone else!  Living in a house with teenagers – it can be very important to have something besides their chaos to take your mind off the insanity that surrounds life!  May also had Mother’s Day and Memorial Day – lots of M’s there!  It was a truly glorious month!

June has ushered itself in with a BANG – on the 1st I joined the ranks of singleness!  Yes, gentle readers, I am divorced – again!  Now, there is a statement to make – divorced again.  Can you say – don’t get married again?  Well, don’t worry – I am saying those words often so I do not forget! 

Tonight is my daughter’s graduation.  This would be the daughter who wants a new mom – maybe she can “divorce” me too!  It seems like yesterday when she was starting preschool – and back then she did not want a new mom!  It has been a weekend of crazy feelings – happiness, sadness, confusion…. more I cannot even put to words!

I have a couple of photo’s to upload – one of a spectacular double rainbow that was outside my door last night.  A double promise of sorts – or at least that is how I looked at it.  I was comforted greatly by it’s beauty in the sky.  Here I was expecting more “2×4 moments” and what do I get – 2 rainbows.  Most undeserving me was humbled by creations glory. 

On the other kids front – they are keeping me hopping!  Heidi is a social butterfly – and she must be in the “in crowd” because she has been invited to all the “in” graduation parties!  Sam is certainly not easy by any means – I am seriously wondering how someone who is “afraid of the bogeyman” can sneak out of the house at 1AM to TP someones house.  But, alas, he was caught and now he has to pay the piper – or at least the mother!  No internet for a few days and I have found some awesome chores for him to help with!!  He even confessed his crime to his youth leader – Craig.  It was a moment that a mother – even a very angry and very tired mother – was pround of.  Mr. K told Sam that trust is something very fragile and breaking it was not easy to repair.  Sam, I believe sees the error of his ways – and either he will be better at sneaking out – or he learned the value of telling your mom about your plans for the evening!  LOL

I will try and get those photo’s uploaded later tonight – after the graduation.  Have a nice week everyone!

  1. Don’t worry about your daughter. I’m pretty sure that a couple of years will be all that’s necessary to smooth things over. You gain a lot of perspective about mothers — and about what a pain you were as a teen — as you hit 20. Good luck with graduation!

  2. I had to laugh at your “wants a new mom ” comment. My daughter and I seemed to be at odds throughout most of her teen years. She even told me she wanted to go to a Foster Home after being told that something she wanted to do wasn’t going to happen while I still had a breath in my body.(I gave her the number for Social Services(working for the public schools has some perks) and told her I hope she enjoyed that Foster Home!! Now that she is grown(28, married, a mom,a staff seargent in the Marines along with her husband, a policeofficer) we laugh about this. She now says -if they say they hate you , you’re doing it right! LOL She also dated a “BUM” for awhile(she knew she could change him) and now we laugh about me telling her if she stuck with him she would live in a rusty trailer in Potterville. She plans on using that line too when her daughter needs to hear it!
    Hang in there-she will soon be your best friend again and this time forever!
