That's an odd saying, isn't it? But it basically sums up my shock. Where in the world did the time go? I have been in my own little world and also have visited many places via my books and TV programs. While my son was living here (ONE WHOLE YEAR!), I rarely got the chance to read because he interrupted me so often. You know, he has ADHD...he's always had it but way back when he was first starting school, they didn't have a name for it. He was just labeled as being "difficult" and "hyper" and was put into special classes at school for "emotionally impaired". I would never recommend those classes for any child. And I don't want to get started talking about all the trauma we went through during his school years. It was terrible and he ended up being cheated out of an education and other classes in which he could have excelled....like music and art, both of which he has natural talent. All I can say is that they've come a long way in helping these kids and hopefully more and more of them are now able to take advantage of a good education and any electives they are interested in.
But anyway, he still suffers from the same symptoms that he's had all his life.....and he won't take any medication for it. So, if you're around him, you have to be prepared to be subjected to lots of activity, almost non-stop talking and having every nerve in your body standing at attention on top of your skin.
So, I've been enjoying my "peace and quiet" when I'm not working outside the home. I have read quite a few books...I'm reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle right now and, 100 pages into it, its holding my attention. How can you NOT like a book that involves dogs!!! I've also started watching TV again. I may become a fan of FRINGE, a new series that has a female as the main character (FBI) who is uncovering many government secrets. I caught a showing of HEROES, which I had never seen before. It held my interest but I will admit that it was confusing. I'm not sure who the good guys/girls are or who the bad ones are at this point.
How fast the evening flies when you're looking at a TV program that holds your interest....or reading a good book. After supper I would sit down to do one or the other and before I knew it, it was bedtime....and no time for computer entries. I did manage to read your blogs at work though so I have been keeping up pretty good except for the last 3 days....I've been off work and busy around home. I must say the weather is beautiful here and its giving me energy I thought I had lost forever. I work every day next week so my work here at home will have to be put on the back burner....at my age its hard to accomplish both things and do them well.
