Being MIA

Published April 28, 2015 by lynn k scott

I’d like to apologize for being MIA the last couple of weeks.  Life has chosen to be challenging again in a myriad of ways.  In addition to Life acting like a premenstrual teenager combined with a man who has the flu and is “dying”, the month of June is fast approaching.

Those who follow the Pink Herald know June is the month I lost my sister in 2012 and then my mother in 2013.  It’s also the month I married my ex-husband, the month my childhood friend was killed (on my 3rd wedding anniversary), and the month one of my aunts died.

I continue my efforts to raise funds for Relay for Life.  I look forward to completing laps around the high school, as I represent my team and honor my sister.  At the same time, it’s saddening and overwhelming.

Work has been insanely busy.  I actually have been working during work hours (strange concept, I know).  I have been coming in early and working through lunches.  No one wants my job, so at least that’s a good thing.  I think.

The lil miss is doing well in school.  We are covering multiplication and she does really well at it.  She can do 70 problems and sometimes only gets 1 or 2 problems incorrect.  She actually looked forward to today’s chapter test!

I bought her a journal that discusses growing up, hygiene, personalty, etc.  Last night we completed a page that she circled adjectives that described here.  Then she had to choose three and write why they suited her.  Well, the little stinker went for shock value.  She stole the smile from the Cheshire cat.  She was beaming at my reaction to her sentences.  Lazy

My daughter LOVES to sleep in. She loves the weekend for this reason.

She doesn’t hate school.  She has fun with art and dance and anything creative.  She adores 20150427_182529washing dishes too!

I will try my best to be here a bit more often, but at the moment, I’m finding out who my true friends are.  It’s reached that stage in my support system.  I know I will meet these life challenges, but it would be nice to not be tested so often.

Side note:  If anyone knows any NY lawyers, who shouldn’t be chained to the bottom of the Hudson River, who would like to put a system-abusing, money-sucking leech in his place (pro bono), feel forward to share this blog link!

    • Thanks. June is really challenging. My lil one gave me a hug tonight. She does that often. It was sweet. Then she reverted back to her pre-teen self and told me I didn’t like to have fun and I enjoyed killing the fun of children. Ahhh, at least she practiced her sentence writing and got the words written perfectly. She’s a stinker to be sure! LOL
