Say Ahhh Because Here Comes the Foot

Why do I do it? I get myself in so much trouble when I open my mouth. Both feet could usually fit.

Years ago I told my best work buddy that when we retired we would go to Camp May, New Jersey, etc. She retired and I did not, but we still planned on going on this trip. She kept asking me if we were going and I kept saying "YES". Me and my big mouth.

A lot has happened in my life since we started planning this trip and it is almost two weeks before we are scheduled to leave. My son's behavior is worse. He is not involved in anything bad, it is just his nasty, sarcastic mouth - like his father's and uncle's. His father is just like him and I am afraid what will happen when I am gone. I have talked of going to New York City and go Josh Hunting (my little joke - I want fabric. ribbon and vintage glassware. The likelihood of running into Josh is slim to none and I don't have the time or money to take on this endevear.

I better get some clothes washed because my son and I would look very foolish goin out of the door in the nonrning half naked.

I have never saved for this trip so the trip is being paid for out of my husband's retirement check. I feel so guilty using family money and leaving my son.

I also got into an argument with some eighth graders. I am as old as dinosauers so why would I take on six eighth grade punks. I seriously think I need my head examined.
