I swore I was going around to all of my blogroll last week, but everytime I got on the computer, someone called me. Normally, I get no phone calls, mainly, because I don’t make any…I’m not a telephone kinda girl anymore. I have this “friend” who will call and repeat herself until I am ready to slit my wrists or I pray one of the kids will call home and inturrupt her. I have tried to explain that we are only 2 months into our new member transition and it is difficult to work out schedules for naps, snacks as well as take care of the rest of the family. She insists that she understands and continues to talk about mundane things that we discussed the day before or even the day before that.
The Hubbs will no longer answer the phone if he sees her number on the phone. The kids are begiinning to look for me when she calls (ok, I hide) and thrust the phone at me almost daring me not to answer it…and grinning evily.
Today while doing laundry, I found a note in the sons pocket. There was several papers from school and one drawing of a pair of legs open with a penis going in between them. I showed it to the hubbs (small letters this time!) and he laughed. I asked why does he thing this sort of thing is funny when I am obviously upset and he replies that ” because I was a teenager once too, and this is what they do.” Well, excuse me, I was one too and I don’t think that I gave these to my parents as please do my laundry gifts.
Fuming, I walk away. I cannot let it go…I WILL not let it go. Laughing be damned as it is time for the lecture. I use my “this could happen to your sister one day speech” would you like to think of someone DISRESPECTING your sister like that??? What about your daughter? Of course it is not his work. I insisted that he tell me who it belonged to so that I could share the pride with their parents as well: no name. He has been asked to join the staff at the martial arts studio because he is an excellent student and of a size where he can command respect of his peers and younger. I am seriously not letting him do it because although his body is of a size, his mind is not. I say lapses in maturity and judgement are to be expected but Christ the King! Home made porno???
I don’t know if I am angrier at my husband or son.
I need a drink.
