Not that I’ve been writing here much anymore, but I just wanted to give a heads up that I will be gone for the next week. And then for many weekends after that. This is my busiest month! Tomorrow I leave for summer camp with my daughter. It’s the same camp I went to when I was a kid, out in Angwin, CA. Now she’s going, and I’m so old I get to be an adult chaperone. Yes, there are people naive enough to trust me with their children. MUWHAHAHA! Besides not being fully packed up, I am ready to go, and I’ll be gone until Friday. I’m not fully looking forward to sleeping on those hard planks, but it’s still a fun way to spend a week. For us grown-ups, it’s wonderful to hang out and gossip after the kids are in bed.
Lucas is staying home with his dad, and then with my dad, and while I’ll miss him, I will be able to catch up on my sanity. Poor kid has been really testing his limits these last two weeks. My absence this next week is not going to help things, but at least I will have regained some patience to deal with it properly. I’ve just found out that his wonderful father, who I would never think any bad thoughts about, is not setting limits with him, and instead leaving it on the GF’s shoulders to do so. Lovely. After camp I will be setting the appointment for co-parent counselling, since he hasn’t done so yet. Then we can nip that in the bud.
Anyway, have a safe 4th, and a wonderful week!
