Okay, Good Morning, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and it's Sunday. Before TTWD, one of my favorite sayings was, "I would rather take a beating than....". Yean, not so much anymore. He does NOT beat me, but you get the humor. I really don't want to go to church today.
See, the folks that caused the issue with my kids are there. The Man had made it clear that he will deal with this situation when he gets home. I was thrilled, relieved, had that, "My man is TEN feet tall feeling", and then it occurred to me. That means that I am not to deal with it, fix it, enter into lengthy discussions, or attempt to resolve this issue.
Yeah, I'm really excited about that. That also means, if I'm not doing the above, I can't be sarcastic, caustic, or "put them in their place." And since I'm writing this, I'm sure it has occurred to you THAT is just what I want to do. Cause a stir, make them feel like my sons did, make SURE they understand what they've done. Ya know, help out The Man. I'm sure he could use my assistance with this. I mean, he is so busy and all.
Is anyone buying this? At times like this, him being gone is tough. It means this won't be dealt with for a while and I am okay with that. However, in order for me to support his role and STAY in mine, it means not throwing that ugly, hateful, mean spirited, go for the throat fit that is being held hostage inside my heart. On the brighter side, I have three weeks to figure out how to explain it to him if I fall off the wagon
Barring that, does anyone know how you extract a free pass? A get out jail free card? And can you use them if you get them AFTER you've committed the offense?
