This and ThatWoman in the Middle | July 28, 2014
I really wanted to tell the young woman at Ross that it isn’t “I can help the next purchase.” It is either “I can help the next customer” or “I can take the next purchase.” I was muttering under my breath about that one!
June Bugs have a very delicate touch. Eldest Daughter and I were just outside the grocery store. We didn’t buy much and I had a bag in each hand and she had the gallon of milk. I heard, “Mom…….Mom…..” and I turned around. “What?” I asked. She was hurrying up to me. “You have a June bug on your hand!” Just then I realized there was a funny feeling on the back of my right hand. You have never seen a hand jerk so fast in your life! How could I have not noticed that big old bug land on my hand? Like I said, June bugs must have a very delicate touch!
Some folks across the street are moving. It seems like they have been moving forever. They have been filling trash cans and then a dumpster. It is giving me moving PTSD since it was just four years ago that we had the
misery, joy of moving into our current home, but it feels like it was just yesterday. It also makes me want to go clean out cupboards. I don’t ever want to have to rent a dumpster just to move.
It must be getting close to the end of the quarter for Youngest Daughter. I got up at seven this morning and she was already gone, off to study. Ah, the life of a mechanical engineering major. Her dad and I keep telling her, “This too shall pass, and then you will make an amazing staring salary.”
Hope you have a great week!!!
