It’s Saturday morning, 9:00 am.
Today is the day that we will not be going to the homeschool co-op kick-off party because apparently no one in this house ever wants to do anything, meet anyone, or breathe fresh air.
Sorry about that. I almost just fell off this damn thing!
I expected the kick-off party to be an ice-breaker opportunity for the boys to meet some other homeschoolers in the area, but it’s turned out to be the first thing about my day that won’t happen as expected. The boys have zero interest in checking out this party, and I lack motivation to make them go, because I’m not even sure I want to go.
Some parents, like the mom I met yesterday, would say taking the boys to this cop-op kick-off of homeschool goodness is just one of those things I should make the kids do. Ya know, I’m the parent and all that stuff? Now, I’m not sure how things are run in your house, but here we have a strict order. We try to stick to it and be consistent. It goes something like this.
I tell the kids what they need to do, and they tell me they don’t want to do that thing, and then my husband backs them up, and then…I run.
Damn it! C’mon, Pandora. Don’t freeze up on me now.
Even though the party isn’t happening as planned, this run will go off without a hitch. Unless of course, it doesn’t. But, as long as I don’t close my eyes and my music app quits freezing up, I should be good.
Then 436 calories later, I will have run and sweat. It’s all about certainty in life, people.
I’m pretty tired after a long week, and I’m even more tired of asking people to do things, only to be met with complaints and whining. Loading everyone up in the car and heading out to the park in the rain- did I mention it was raining? to hang out with a large group of people I don’t know is not something I feel like doing today.
Mostly, I just don’t want to listen to people complain.
