Thursday Theater

[Japanese gardens]

It has been a very long day. The little Prince is sacked out in his favorite spot, the hideabed in the living room. All the critters sleep with him, and he is in heaven.

Getting him today was a giant clusterf*&k...after all the emails back and forth, changing th e days, changing the times...I went down to get him (his mom said he had a half day and was getting out at 11:30. Surprise! Turns out he wasn't getting out til 2, so it tied up the better part of my I live too far to go home and then come back again in 2 hours.

Once again, the opportunities for growth come hard and fast some days. Staying in the moment. How important is it? Nowhere to Go...No one to be...Nothing to do...kept filtering through my ego based anger.

SO...when I hit too many roadblocks, I just change where I'm going. I killed the 2 hours by picking up a few groceries, stopping by Auto Zone, and grabbing a much needed bite to eat. By the time angelboy got to the car, I was all smiles and grannie. Just what he needed!

I am grateful tonight that I can be trusted with such precious cargo as an 11 year old boy.
I am so so so grateful that he has never seen me drunk.
I am grateful that my puppies are all safe and sound tonight.
I am grateful for a husband who loves me, even when I am not particularly loveable.
I am grateful for my amazing and outstanding man of a son: he "graduated" officially last night at an awards dinner from the union apprenticeship program. He had the highest GPA in the whole class, and won a plaque and certificate for "Practical and Academic Excellence in Ceramic tiles" and was given about 200 dollars for the GPA, as well as a nice coat, a heated coffeemug that he said "Heats up to about 150 degrees when you plug it into the lighter", a couple of really expensive tools and something else, I can't remember.'

I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams....and with that, I am going to bed.. Have a big turtle hunting day ahead with the Little Prince.

Enjoy your day with your little prince.

I hope turtle hunting is like Sarah Palin's moose hunting... But I hope the little one is tickled...


All's well that ends well.

Have a great time with your little Prince.

LOL...turtle hunting is just walking along the pond and grounds, looking for turtle hiding places.

Sometimes we move them to safer ground, but mostly we just watch them and talk.
