I think we just get tired of our own stuff...I'd take yours in a heartbeat!!!!
Isn't that true? It boggles my mind how I can spend my hard earned money on something - loving it when I buy it, only to want to get rid of it in a year or two. Thanks for all the offers to take the lamp, but I reckon I'll keep it for now!
I should have elaborated on the desk story a bit. It was quite funny. You see - I didn't take anything off the desk before I moved it. I know - I know. Oh gosh, if Glenco saw me doing this - he'd have a fit. So I'm scooting this fully loaded desk, an inch at time, going back and forth from side to side, and the corner leg of the desk pops off the heating vent cover, and the desk leg falls down in the vent hole. The top of the desk wedged itself under the windowsill. Everything that is on the desk is now sliding off. The desk wouldn't budge. I crawled under the desk and emerged from the other side. I couldn't budge it. All I could think of was Glenco coming home and finding the desk like that. It would give him MUCH too much ammunition to use against me in the future - so that desk had to me moved, and now. I didn't have the cellphone ON me, since my flimsy nightgown hasn't a pocket, but it was laying on the desk. How convenient.
I have big news today.
Aaron has decided to go to Highschool.
With principals, and band, and bells, and teams.
I had a feeling it was coming.
I saw him look wistfully at the highschool a few times as we drove by.
He's mentioned it before.
He decided he'd like to see what it's like.
He said he'd rather go and not like it and come back to homeschooling than to not know what it's like at all.
He didn't want to have any regrets.
I felt that was a very mature decision on his part.
I felt proud of him.
