It's almost eight o'clock here at the house. Time for the boys to go to bed... well, now that it's summer they get to stay up later ~ if I'm in a good mood. Today I am not. It isn't their fault. my joints be aching and I want to curl up in a hot bath with a very good book that is being totally unfair in giving the heroine a mortal illness... jerks!
But I don't know If I can go in the bath anytime soon... why? I am getting a scooter for Blake of a real neat site called Freecycle* , actually I am getting the scooter off Freecycle from a friend. Hubs and I have to go into the city and replace the knobs that I had argued were absolutely The Right Ones, cus they are the wrong ones. So we told A we would come in tonight, grab the scooter, jabber a bit, and return the knobs for the Real Right Ones. A said, hey no problem, we are coming into your town tonight for supper with family, we can drop it off at seven. Nice I thought they can finally see the new house, Parker and Blake can see the kids, and we can try and catch up! It was a deal!
And yet here we are at eight, no phone call, no email , no nothing. I don't want to put the boys to bed and five minutes later, A and her kids show up. I don't want to put them in the bath/shower and the same thing happen. I simply don't know what to do. The coffee
When I tell someone I am doing something, I do it, and if I cannot, I let them know! I don't leave them hanging around in a limbo thinking should I this or should I that... Its only right!
A promise is a special thing, its not something to be taken lightly. If I say I will be there, I will.
And the worst? Blake has been sitting downstairs on the couch, holding his helmet since five to seven , patiently waiting to try out his new scooter. By breaking Your promise, you made me break one to MY child. And I don't like that one bit. And when I tell him in a few minutes "sorry honey, but you can't have your scooter tonight ~ in fact you probably won't get it at all now" I'm pretty sure I will see his little heart break right there in front of me.
*The Freecycle Network™ is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them's good people). Membership is free.
