Megan, my 19 year old tornado who is turning into a typhoon is now home. Dianna sent me this tag yesterday and fitting it was. Spring break has sprung. I was at work. She had been home 7 mins...lol...7 minutes for the first eruption to occur. Seems she wanted to take my car to Clarion which is 70 some miles north of here and along I-80 which is a west to east interstate across northern Pa. She had a ride but nope, she wanted to drive also. I don't argue with her; just reenforced the rules over and over. Major attitude eruption. The phone call actually came from Joey because he knew I wouldn't approve. Her favorite word...WHY...came out in a superlong sentence of multiple WHY's.
Oh well, I got another phone call....this time no attitude and sweet talk. Ok...she was up to something. Her friend wasn't driving. She was using the "butter up" Mom trick this time, and Mom gave in. I did have some time to think over my original conversation. She really didn't have a ride and has two very close friends who go to college in Clarion. Compromise time, I suppose. My major concern was that none of our vehicles are dependable anymore. That's my fuss, not hers. I'm being a little OCD about the cars right now because I can foresee some major repairs looming on the horizon. Man, I wish I had been in Oprah's audience the day she passed out the cars (lol, of course, I would have had to spring for the tax on it.)
Megan is a rocky, rocky road right now. I understand that completely because my oldest daughter, Becky, is now 25. Her road with me was rocky for years and years. She has turned the bend. Megan was never that way. She came into her own around Thanksgiving break this year. So, let's see....4 more years of this...I'm estimating based on Becky. But, let me tell you, she has fully grown into a typical female teen and perfecting it.
Off I go in a bit to get my hair colored (now, you know stylists do not "dye" hair anymore....they color it).
My BF and I went out last night and had a really nice evening together. It's been a while since we've been able to get out due to illness, working, etc. Tonight will be my quiet night at home sans those big kids of mine. I want to read some of Sharon's picks since I haven't had time.
Have a great day all.....thanks for your wonderful comments about my being selected by Sharon. I happen to believe that the journals in J-Land are wonderful because J-Land is full of some of the most wonderful people around. Love you all!!!!!!
