Good morning. It is Saturday and I love Saturdays. I have to admit, I am a little frustrated right now. My sister who is staying with me took my boys to Lagoon with our bounce back tickets. I couldn't go because the baby was supposed to be coming home.
To make a long story short, he can't yet. His eating has slowed down. They want me to come in and stay the night with him. So I will.
Back to the sister. She is staying with us for the summer. She is kind of on her own at the moment. Taking the summer off so to speak. She is divorced and her kids are all grown and have families of their own. She has been going through a bad breakup for a few years, yes, years now. She is one of these gals that is constantly on the go. Always wanting to do, do, do. It tires me out. The more she wants to go go go, the more I want to do nothing.
I know she thinks I am probably boring but I purposely like to keep the drama at bay. She attracts drama like a bee to honey. You know the type? Something dramatic is ALWAYS coming or going. I don't' mean to sound like I am criticizing. People have a right to their own way of life but she called last night at 9 pm and told me that after Lagoon they had gone to a movie and were about to start another, then they would all sleep at my other sister's house who is about an hour away where they were. Then they would go to Cherry Hill this morning.
I finally got mad. They last time I let her take my son or trusted her to pick him up, he stayed down there for almost a week. Everyday expecting her to bring him home like she said she would yet at the end of the day not showing up.
I feel like she is putting me in a bad place as the bad guy because it makes me look like the party pooper when I say "no". I know my kids are having a great time and I am sure they prefer the fun they are having to being home with the family but school starts on Monday and I have been trying to get them used to going to bed early and getting up earlier.
Jake has to catch the bus at 7 am the the others at 7:30am. Bry was not happy with the news either. ARGGG!! To be honest, I am not too worried about her reading this. I have only one sister who is even remotely interested in reading my blog. I have 5 sisters but none but one read it. That's all I'll say about that.
So, am I making a mountain out of mole hill? I just can't wait for school to start so that there is no time for this kind of thing to happen.
