Have I ever told you about my "friend" (name withheld to prevent embarrassment)
Well, anyway, she's been super busy lately. She's been getting lots of phone calls about her business over the past few days- (which is great for her- don't get me wrong) and she's also been having lots of people come over to her house to take a look at the business, but the house has to be in tip-top shape when people come by! BUT on top of that, her and her husband have decided to do some remodeling in their home. All these things put together, means that someone has to suffer. That someone, is her kids. OY! I know. It's sad!
The other night, one of her kids told the mom(my friend), that she was out of underwear. No biggie, that happens in every one's homes. I tried to be encouraging, and told her to go throw a load in the wash. Well, it turns out, my friend put the clothes in the washer, then forgot to run the load! Idiot! The little girl woke up the next morning and asked for her clean undies and the mom had to tell her little girl that she forgot to run the load. I felt bad for the little girl! And the girl, she's kind of stubborn and would not under any circumstance, go "commando". So, the mom had to drag her sorry butt to Wal-mart that morning before school to get some underwear! I can't believe it! I would NEVER do that to my poor kid!!!
The other thing she's been doing, or shall I say, not doing, is cooking! The last home-made meal she cooked was on Monday! Monday, people!! They have had what her kids refer to as "fend for yourself night". They've eaten cereal, pb&j sandwiches, and then, more cereal! My friend got some recipe books from one of her friends, and she says she's going to look through them so that she can get some meals ready to freeze. I hope she can do that!
You remember the little girl and her underwear, or lack thereof? Well, she's supposed to be reading every night for 20 minutes. The mom knows how important that is! She's a teacher herself! But the reading has fallen to the wayside too!
Any advise for my "friend"? She's a slacker mom!
I think it's only fitting that people who talk about their "friend"- as if no one knows it's really themselves that they are talking about, should have Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider as the song for today!
