I am not exactly sure what to do. or think. Today after I got the kids off to school I did dishes and laundry and straightening. I then sat around and watched movies and ate bonbons because that is what Dave thinks I do every day. (By the way you will be happy to hear they now sell bonbons at Costco.)
Then I showered, brushed my teeth, did my hair and very carefully applied some makeup. I got dressed in somewhat fashionable clothes. I did this not only because it is important for hygiene and my mental health but I had a meeting with at the Jr. High with the counselor.
Today was a very important day for Aaron because today at the ripe old age of 13 we proceeded to plan out his entire life including high school, college and future career. I didn't want you to be in suspense for the next 15 years so I thought I would just announce it now. He is going to be a Dentist, Or a Sports Trainer. Or an Investigator. Maybe.
I would like to tell you that I went into this interview having discussed with him before all of his desires, talents and interests thoroughly. But I didn't. I just tried to get there on time, be in the right place and be presentable. I just needed them to know that I am a "concerned, loving and stable" parent. I thought that was sufficient even for this very important occasion.
When I got home I was shocked to see that I failed to even meet those simple goals.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
Don't even ask about the next 3 THREE places I went. I am not ready to talk about it.
So I must ask.
Does this mean that my next step is to go out with curlers in my hair and wearing a house dress.
Do they even make house dresses anymore?
What is a house dress?
Do I wear a kerchief over the curlers or just go?
Should I just prearrange that my skirt is tucked up in my pantyhose?
Blouse inside out or right side in?
These are the fashion decisions that I must ponder.
PS I think I will blame my counselor in 8th grade. She should have seen this coming. She should have prepared me better.
