Teen years=when moms and dads lose their shit.
My race proved to be better than I thought. After getting an 80% recovery score at PT, I did the 5K race at a walk/run pace of 39 minutes. Yes, it is slow. However, considering I couldn't run for months and was enduring a lot of pain while even walking, I feel pretty good about it and it will only get better. Today, the neck is a little sore and I am working hard on exercises this lunch period.
Later in the evening, I took the twirp to Little Big Town. If I hadn't already promised her this occasion, I would have gone by myself to punish her ways. I realize I need to become a hardened criminal like Momster and stop being soft. It's not like I would have lost money anyway, but geesh, my word is my word. I know...I am contradicting and having conflict with myself and becoming an enabler for a day.
The smile on her face was worth it and it seemed to bring us to a place where we could talk about her emotional state with her father issues.
It is a huge benefit to have a wellness program to earn these dealios and I am using up my coupons. The ticket prices are not that bad around here compared to Wyoming prices. I was amazed. Economy difference, I guess.
In all the concerts I have attended (which is quite a few over the years), it was at the top of the list, slowly squeezing into the grand prize favorite shows of The Moody Blues and Garth Brooks as far as entertainment value. They were fabulous and brought up children, nerdy college students and the like to be on stage with them. They went out to the crowd; they opened up more floor space. They joked with people and worked the crowd like they should as Entertainers of the Year.
I might also add these women look FABULOUS at OUR age. *wink*wink*
Of course, the crowd favorite was Boondocks...and Pontoon...in reverse order...
And now...you know where I come from. Did it surprise you? I know, they don't mix real well with Eminem and Bone Thugs.
