Did She Really Just Say That?

Alright! It’s Friday. Crystal’s tale…. I know. I promised. (Rolling eyes in disappointment.) It’s been a rough week. Appointments are becoming more trouble then their worth, and well… Dang it!  Let me tell you a little story about that struggle of motherhood I mention every once in a while. I have this beautiful, brilliant, ball of mess that I call my daughter. Yes I just called her a giant ball of mess. This little freedom fighter, free spirit, against the crowd girly will with no exception, do something simply based on whether you did or didn’t ask her to do it or not to do it.

“Wakey wakey. It’s time to get ready.”

“Meh…grumble grumble, yawn, roll over.”

“Really!”

Every day this week, this kid has forgotten something. Aha! #writerproblems

EVERY TIME I SIT DOWN AND START TO GROOOVE, THIS GAL HAS GOTTA TO PULL ME AWAY! This morning as we sat for breakfast, and chatted say. Woo! All them tiny ones slept in 🙌 “Go team!” I made it a point to Say, “Make sure you have everything today, I cannot come to your rescue. Not today.”

“OK.”

Yeah farking right OK … That little maniacal grin crested on her face. Have i mentioned shes sarcastic like fawk?

Two hours later…..(Think spongebob)

“Hey mom.” Awkward giggle.

“Really?”

“Can you please bring my permission slip? I need it by today.”
Never fails. This is one of those meme-able moments. Whats that? #facepalm. Yeah! And I was over here like bust out the happy dance it’s Friday!

I had been editing since six am. Victory!  Or shall I reference the Percy Jackson book series “For peanut butter!”  (A cyclops hollering a battle call for Poseidon with his mouth full.)

Either way, now here I am posting about it to you. My glorious readers. Good morning and Happy Friday!

What’s new? I’m over here in my little writers nook of the world, watching silently as people I know, some I love, breakdown their private dramas publicly on social media.

“Du du dooo du, du du doooo du….And these are the days of our lives! Tune in next week to see if James comes out of his coma!”

“Nah!” (Scarey eyes)

So I’ve pondered a lot lately. These journeys we all experience, they are all focused on one main factor. “We live to learn.” One cannot condemn another for mistakes they make, have made, or pondered.

“Uh Huh …yeah… He said/she said whaaaat?

“Where’s the popcorn?” OK, OK, you get the point.

Really though: relationships are hard. They don’t come with a manual. No world there is no book out there that teaches us how to co-habitat with others. (Pondering…Hmmm maybe there is 😉 ) Life really is process by elimination. To love one another, we must love ourselves.

Nine Traits that make a relationship functional:

  1. Understanding
  2. Compassion
  3. Fairness
  4. Genuineness
  5. Affection
  6. Empathy
  7. Compromise
  8. Respect
  9. Communication

Any hoo, I’m not in Dr. Mel mood today, so I’ll simply take off with my hands to the wind and enjoy my weekend roller coaster. Yeah!
