…no, not THAT kind of addiction! I’m talking about the kind where you sit & watch something for days on end & then when it does end all you can think about is that show. It’s kinda like when Star Wars came out. I was a child & yet all I could think about was Luke, Han & Leia. I mean really, I was a child & yet I KNEW I was part of that life!
Well, It’s taken me about a week to watch the first 3 seasons of Burn Notice (thank you Netflix! & cable for rerunning some of them) & all I can think about is Micheal, Sam & Fiona bursting through my door to save me from my repetitious life. Save me from my whiny kids & my horrible mothering skills. Save me from a husband who’s big boss from back east is out & keeping hubby @ work all hours of the day & night. Save me from my boredom.
…sigh…I’ve really got mental issues…
…I didn’t even think about my son’s cleats being a size 13. Today he showed me his foot & his big toes are bruising because his shoes are so small. Also one of his toes was digging into the other toe & he had dried blood under his very short toe nail as well as dried streams running down his leg. I can’t believe it got that bad. I definitely win the mother failure award. Causing my child to bleed & feel terrible pain? Yep, mother failure award here I come.
This week the kids are doing a soccer camp & both of them are absolutely loving it. Except for the whole shoes being too small for the foot thing. I really didn’t think about it. I feel terrible but I’m sure he feels worse. We’ve joked & kidded about how tall he’s getting but I never thought about how hard it is to find certain things. The only good part is that shorts won’t be too short for a long time (i’m sincerely hoping!) & I can find tall men’s shirts @ Sears.
Oh & I promptly got online (& then called) Zappos to find soccer cleats. Luckily they did have them & the really nice customer service rep I spoke w/ helped me order plus he made me a vip member (this includes free overnight shipping – YES!) & hopefully we’ll get the new cleats tomorrow afternoon although I’m not holding my breath. (I really do live in the boondocks)
