Also, if you know David Hartley Seymour, it is his birthday... but, you probably don't know him. He was a kid in my high school youth group.
I'm looking back over my weekend... and it was pretty good.
I'm linking up with Kati and Kate to bring you:
The Good: We took a little road trip on Saturday and used the Stern German's GPS to guide us to our destinations.
The Bad: The woman's voice on the GPS was kind of loud and annoying.
The Ugly: I couldn't figure out how to turn the volume down... but ...
The Good: The Stern German and I spent most of Saturday watching two different drumline competitions... in which the Angsty Teen was (supposed to be) performing.
The Bad: The Angsty Teen's concussed state only allowed her to participate in one of the shows.
The Ugly: I hurt my knee earlier in the week... both of the venues had lots of stairs to climb.... dang.
How did I hurt my knee? Well, doing nothing, originally, but then I pulled something going up the bleachers to the basketball game a few days ago... This getting old is tricky.
The Good: The Angsty Teen has a list of exercises to do five times a day to help her concussed state.
The Bad: I got to be the parent to help her get started doing them...
The Ugly: She was ornery, disagreeable, whiney, and angsty... not a willing participant.
- If the Stern German had to help her... it would've been ugly... one would've been removed by Social Services and one would've been jailed... hmmm... Why did I think that would've been a bad idea? Just kidding... kind of.
- She needed a card with a word on it taped to the wall about eight feet in front of her. When I asked her what word she wanted on the card, this is what she said:
|No, she isn't grounded... she actually said "F-bomb." So, I obliged her.|
- She was easier to work with once she found out I would make her a sticker/dauber chart.
|Really? A fifteen year old needs a sticker chart????|
- Also.... guess what? Concussed people don't drive cars... that might motivate her to work hard...
So that's a little glimpse into my life this weekend...
This is why I drink... Cheers!
