Share Your World 8/28/17

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

Okay, let’s dream!  Right now a perfect day would mean sleeping in until 9:00 or 9:30 then having a leisurely breakfast with Gracie and Phoebe.  The temps would top off around 70 degrees, and I’d spend time in the yard with the dogs.  After getting a massage I’d meet a friend for lunch and a pedicure, then I’d toodle around the bookstore for a while.  The kids would magically teleport into my car so I could skip the pickup line and we’d go for frozen yogurt after school.  I’d do some blogging while they finish homework/do their chores/play with friends, and that night we’d enjoy a family dinner that everyone actually eats.  The kids would volunteer for cleanup duty so BrightSide and I could go for a walk, and we’d return to a house where no one was bickering about who’d done the most work.  Ahhh…

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

Is with family.

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

Leslie.  I had a group of girlfriends that were fun to hang out with, but Leslie was special.  We kept in touch even after I moved.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Seeing a couple of unexpected acts of kindness between my kids.  Everyone we know tells us what great kids we have, and they are – but they’re typical siblings who get on each other’s nerves, too.  Last week T-man showed genuine compassion for Bear when she was in pain, and he offered to put away her lunch groceries when she forgot.  Bear offered to make waffles for T-man, and she gave him space when he had a friend over.  Seeing them treat each other with kind consideration was inspiring.

  1. Your perfect day sounds PERFECT! I want one, too! 🙂 Specially that carline business. Do you do it all the time? I drive them to a lot, but I almost never collect them from. Moo asked me to pick her up Friday and I bout lost my mind! lol We literally could have walked home faster, and even crossing the big bridge on foot would have felt less perilous than the carline! Phew!

    • Hubby drops them off on way to work & I pick them up in the afternoon. What’s crazy is that we live about 8 minutes from the school but the bus situation is beyond unacceptable — middle & high school ride together, and the buses are so crowded that they often have students standing in the aisles. (Don’t ask me how that’s legal.) I won’t even mention what they caught two kids doing in the back of the bus last September…On the days when I’m baking in my car and cussing the pickup line, I just remind myself why I won’t put them on there. (insert eye roll here)

      • Ah. Well I’ve had TERRIBLE experiences with the buses here. I’d never had such rotten wait times and inconsistencies. We also live mere minutes from the schools! So I’m a dropper-offer.
        I am aware of some inappropriate behavior on elementary buses, but in a strange turn of events, the middle school and high school bus seems kosher.

  2. Oh, a perfect day… Right now it would be to sleep in, stay in PJs all day with Mitchell, have Chinese take out delivered, and Ice Cream and berries ready for anytime all day. After I had that time for a few days to recoup (we are working non-stop right now) I’d say wandering a beach… With Mitchell… and if life were perfect, we’d have our long departed dogs back to walk with us.
