I dont have anything profound to say (do I ever?) tonight. Things have been relatively calm (knock on wood) for the last few days. The kids seem comfortable with thier new official family.
I went to the school on Friday with the adoption decree so they could change the last names. N said when he came back in from recess he had a new name tag on his desk. Cool!
A little boy from S's class came and asked if she could play. I said, "I guess so". This was the kid that was chasing S at school at the beginning of the year. N was trying to defend her (because she was acting like she didnt like it, even though she did), and pushed this boy down, causing him to hit his head on a bike, and having to get his head stapled. It was one of those "welcome to parenthood" moments that I could have done without. Anyway, he came and played. I asked him if he needed to call home and tell someone where he was. He said:
"No, I can stay out until eight o clock" (it was one in the afternoon).
Me: Oh, well...
Him: I can spend the night somewhere too.
Me: Oh, and not tell your mom where you are?
Him: I have to ask her
Me: Well, thats good.
I mean, is it me? Am I an uptight parent, who is holding her children too close? Overprotective? I dont think so...watch the news people. I could never turn my kids loose for seven hours, out somewhere, with whoever and me not know about it. NEVER.in.a.million.years. So, I feel bad for this kid. He is in second grade for Pete's sake.
Lets see...what else? Oh, yeah, I went to a weight watchers meeting and the leader who gives the little lesson of the week was wearing a shirt with the words "chocolate" and "love" all over it. Ok, I happen to agree with that, however..is it REALLY appropriate for a weightwatchers meeting? I think not.
Some Moron almost killed my whole famn damily today. Just came flying out of the parkinglot into the lane we were in. My awesome stud of a driver husband had to swerve while ensuring we didnt run into anyone else, and also use one arm to keep me from flying toward the dash, since my dumb butt wasnt wearing a seat belt (hey, MY KIDS were wearing them!). So, that was fun.
TV...almost all my shows are over with for the season. What do I do for my me time? I already read a little in bed before passing out, so maybe I should read more. Grey's Anatomy finale really freaked me out. I mean come ON. BOTH O'Mally AND Izzy? Thats just too much. I think they should reserect that dude, whats his name? THe dead guy that Izzy married? Denny. Yeah, he is hot. Bring him back as...something, anything.
Hell's Kitchen. I was pleased with the finale and the outcome. I liked both contestants, but I was routing for Danny. Good Lord, he made me cry when he was talking about his mother. I hate when I do that. ITS A TV SHOW, about people I dont know..why am I crying?
Just American Idol is left. For one more week. The kids and I have decided that since Danny GOkey is gone, we will actually vote for Chris. I figure Adam has a career ahead of him no matter what, so we will vote for Chris. Besides, Im still a little upset about that "Ring of Fire" thing Adam did.
