DJ was home last week. Bless his sloppy heart. Every morning, I would get up and there were wrappers and cups everywhere. I didn't know that we had that many cups. He might have been bringing in wrappers and trash from other people's houses. Every room had his destruction in it. I did manage to hold my tongue until the day and then I got all momesque on his ass. He was also a crab-ass on the trip back because he was tired because he was out late. Not my problem and we had to have another readjustment. Don't get me wrong, I missed him just not his snarky mouth or mess.
Anna also came in for a long visit because this was the last time she would be able to before she moved to CA. She is moving on Friday. Yes, Friday the 13th. She has my luck so what could go wrong?
I also got a refresher course in all that is Anna. She will always help me clean up. Always. In fact, she helped quite a bit with the aftermath of DJ. She complained terrible about her brother which made me laugh, she sounds so much like me. And I'm glad that she gets it now. But Anna is our social butterfly, we would wake up and people would be asleep in various rooms. Den asked me one night while he was trying to make dinner, how many people should he cook for? I said, figure on anywhere from 3 to 13. We ended up with 6 that night.
I have to say though, they are getting easier to be around. I should have sent them to college and let them learn life's struggles at about 15. Maybe 12.
I'll keep you posted on Anna and her move. I'm sure it will be an adventure. It does seem like she has everything planned out. She really is turning into her mother. She even argued with Scott about getting rid of a lot of his things and the argument sounded like one that I had had with Den many times. It sounded a bit like, "In your mind, that argument is acceptable?" "And you really think that this will work?" All ended with, "Something is wrong with you."
I think I can finally say that she is on the upswing. It was always an adventure with her.
DJ is smart but is mouthy and sloppy. He always seemed to get it sooner than Anna even though he is 4 years younger. He was 3 credits shy of being a sophomore after his first semester in college. He's smart just a slob. I guess I think my kids will be alright when I see they act, sound, and do things like I do. So basically I wanted minions.
Wookieepedia! THAT IS AWESOMENESS!
Out of here,
