On Monday, (Valentine's Day), Dylan and I met a friend and her son for lunch, and
she told me she might be moving. I don't have a lot of "lives near enough to see on a regular
basis" friends, so I find this completely unacceptable.
On Tuesday, I found out that there's a possibility that I broke my mom's toe. (She's seeing a doctor
today). I was also asked, by my dad, to make a very last minute, stressful decision about going on a
vacation with them. There are many factors involved I won't go into, but I will just say, "Got guilt?"
On Wednesday, I was working on something online, and became convinced that I am going
senile. I really thought I was getting better with computers, but on Wednesday, I could not
figure out even the simplest thing. When my dad brought Dylan back, (he was at their house for the
day), he asked if I gave him extra syrup with his waffle that morning. Seems he was "a bit of a handful".
Last night, he was acting like he was possessed. First he started singing in a very strange, scary voice. Then, while "cleaning up" he threw a foam (thank goodness!) letter at Jim's face. Time out. Jim puts him to bed, and I felt bad, listening to the yelling and complete madness going on upstairs (not bad enough to go upstairs, though!) When Jim came back down, he informed me, "That was THE WORST he has been in, oh, about FOUR YEARS!!".
He hasn't had a time out in months, but in the past 2 days? Well, the count is now at 4. The last one was right after lunch, when I was at the table, busy reading some papers he brought home from school, and he threw a small basketball right onto the table, resulting in flying food, papers, dishes, and a screaming lunatic mommy. (No, it wasn't an accident. He wanted my attention). His teacher at school confirmed that they've been having "some trouble getting him to listen to directions" lately.
I'm not sure what is going on, but I'm supposed to meet one of my favorite bloggy friends, Jenn, from Juggling Life, this weekend. I hope, by that point, I don't look like this...
