Yesterday we got up at 6:30 am and followed some awesome friends to the Oktoberfest parade. We really enjoyed it. The kids were great, I thought it would be a chore to wake them and get them out the door at 7:15!. There’s a saying that if “your kids are great for others, then you’re doing a great job” Kids always talk back to the parents. Back in 2001 I talked back to God, I even through a water bottle at Him while driving, heading home one evening after a rehersal with the band. It bounced back off the roof of the van and almost hit me. (I sing and have done recordings…bla bla). It felt good to get real mad at our Father,(knowing we’re allowed to get mad when we really are) and I “swear” I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Have you had enough?” !.
It’s laundry day today, all of their cloths look the same, except Emma’s. Oh,.. and Jac’s. I have to lay them beside each other and duh, Q’s is the largest, but my A.D.D brain can’t comput right away.
No really, I am A.D.D. In the 60’s they did’nt know what to do with kids like us, so I was shipped to another school, where my friends were either “retarded” (the old slang) now “mentaly challenged” or (down-sen-drome)< I'm sorry, I don't know how to spell it. My D.S friend was named "Dicky". My kids love this story, they had laughted so hard when they first heard of this part of my childhood, and they still do, brats!. I know they're going to make me tell it to the Grandkids.
I’m hopeing to take a walk in Waterloo today, yesterday on the way to and from the parade I saw some awesome old house’s made of brick, the neighborhood’s full of them and the trees are all colours, it’s so cozy looking. I wonder if anyone will think it strange if I stop at stare at their house’s?. When Liam goes to school, Jacob and I will drive to this place and walk!. Can’t wait. Hope I don’t get lost. Well got to go, Jac will wake from his nap soon and Liam would like the comput. PS. Jacob has slept throught the night 2x now! and counting.
Bye for now
