Chuckle. She sent me a document and asked if it might be published on my blog. While I feel a little funny posting a story about myself I don’t feel funny enough not to do it. heh. So here you have it from that mother of mine…
I’ve noticed that the subject of food has crept into this blog and no surprise there, sitting down to eat has always been a favorite past time of our family.It still is my
favorite part of the day!
I felt like I needed to get this story down in print before it left my memory.
The other day, I pulled into the local Trader Joe’s parking lot to add a few more items to the already overflowing car that had just left Costco. Just as I went flying down an aisle my cell phone started ringing. ‘who the heck is calling me’ I thought. ‘Oh it’s Kelsey’. I answered it all cheerful since I had not heard from her in a couple of days.
“um, no that is normal price unless you can get it at Trader Joe’s or Costco”
‘Well gosh, guess I will talk to her some other time,’ I thought.
Ring Ring says the cell phone.
Kelsey must have called by mistake.
“snicker,snicker, chuckle, chuckle, har, har”
“uh Kelsey I thought you were busy at the grocery store?”
“Well I am but, snicker snicker, I just walked past some raspberry lemonade,
chuckle, chuckle, and it reminded me of right before my wedding, har, har, you
asked me to stop at the store and get it so you could get all the punch made and I
didn’t do it and you got all fussy at me,” more chuckles.
I took a deep breath rolled my eyes and asked “why can’t you ever remember the
times when we had a house full of people showing up for the weekend and you
were at school all day, arrived home to a clean house, dinner cooked and you had
done none of it and I was cheerful??”
“um, because Mom that is not even funny”
Motherhood=a roller coaster ride, strap in, hang on, there is no getting off!
