Looking for the Positive!

School starts tomorrow. Big stress here... big stress.

We accidentally figured out how to get a teenager out of the shower. When we were out shopping for a sling for Ringo, he found this latex bag that he could slip over his cast and not worry about it getting wet. The latex bag has this 2 inch rubber... band that clings to the arm or leg.

Me: What time do you want me to get you up in the morning.

Ringo: 6:15. My shower won't be that long. It's that bag I have to wear...

Me: It starts to leak?

Ringo: No! It starts to cut off the circulation to my arm!

So there you have it... short showers... we just had to break an arm to do it!

Seriously? School starts tomorrow? Doesn't start around here for another 3 weeks.

Yup! But we get out earlier, as well. Our last day of school is usually like 1 June.

You are LOOKING for a positive? You really have to LOOK? Bou, you seriously need to swap my hormonal house of horrors for your three boys. It'll be a piece of cake... for me. :)

I'm trying to find the positive in each moment so that I can survive until the first day of school for everyone, the college kids, especially. It's beginning to look like it will be a choice between MY survival or THEIRS. No brainer there...
