You ever wake up and feel like you are 40 years older? I am sooo at that place right now. I am contimplating the nursing home. Not only am I wearing a heart monitor but I totally threw out my back or hip or something. I went to pick my rhino of a son up and pinched a nerve or something. I swear I would cry if it wasn't so freaking funny. I get 'stuck' bending over. It has got to be a sight. I giggle just thinking about it. "Oh my hip, Oh my heart." Geeze man! Where did the all night parties with booze and loud music go? It's more like "Where's my medication and heating pad?"
I think I went right past becoming my mother, and zoomed to becoming my grandmother all in one week. And the kids... oh the kids. The oldest is being the sweetest thing ever. Today she told me how hard it was to sit there and watch me try to put my sock on without help. I feel secure that she will take care of me in my old age. I am working hard not to piss that kid off. I'm gonna need her.
But the other one. I'm kinda thinking I shouldn't piss him off either. He's gonna want to get rid of me quick. He has decided that it's hysterical to run from me while I'm trying to put his clothes on. Or to drop his spoon every 2 minutes just to watch Mommy get 'stuck' trying to pick it back up.
So please pass the pudding, I'm gonna go ahead and check myself into that nursing home now. Please tell me you have days like this...
