You may have noticed I’ve been kind of haphazard in my posting the last couple of weeks. I have a good excuse.
I was busy on a project with God in which we made $70,000 net for one school by selling 4,000 raffle tickets, and $30,000 net for another school by selling 500 tickets. God and I kept all of those tickets straight–who sold what (and to whom with the smaller raffle). Both were very successful, but I’m glad they are over. Now I can get back to being a “normal Mom.”
About three weeks into the craziness, my son told me he was ready for me to be a normal mom again. “What’s that?” I asked. “You know, a normal mom, they drive up, drop you off, and leave.” (They are so cute when they’re honest!) Instead, his not-normal mom parked every morning, got out, walked with him with her own stuff, up to school, and was there for half of the day most days.
Tomorrow I get to be a normal mom again. My oldest daughter helpfully said that’s never going to happen because I’m never going to be normal.
I think I’ll choose to take that as a compliment.
The good news is… maybe I can find my carpet back now! Who knows. Stranger things have been known to happen!
And maybe, just maybe, I’ll get back to some kind of schedule with this blog. There’s strange, and then there’s impossible, but I’ll do my best. Thanks for sticking with me through the rough spots.
