We never know what’s around the corner. Life is waltzing along and suddenly something unexpected happens. There was a death in the family and a memorial service to attend which included traveling. I stayed with my grandchildren so the parents could go. I expected that. I had promised to do it. What I had not expected was to be left without internet access. My son-in-law had turned it off because of a storm, and forgot to turn it back on.
It’s funny. I lived for sixty years without internet and never missed it. Now that I have internet, wireless to be exact, I’m left without it for a weekend and I feel like I’m excluded from the world!
The parents are back. The internet is back on. The house is quiet and calm. Guess what? The kids are in bed and I can breathe a sigh of relief.
Before the unexpected we had the expected. My dear Brianna-girl had her birthday party. Is was very special for because for the first time she had her three grandmothers with her. And she taught me what BFF means. It stands for Best Friends Forever.
Here we are, the BFF’s!
Today is her birthday. I asked what she wanted for dinner and she chose Tacos. What a relief for me, easy to prepare. It was still a circus. But we made it. It’s just that everyone had so much to say and nobody wanted to take turns. My ears got blisters!
In a month or so the kids and I will be on our own again. The parents have their 10th Anniversary and I’ve promised them a day on their own. That time I’m going to make sure I don’t get “stranded” without internet.
Tomorrow I’ll be heading home again. I’ll get into my life pattern for a few days. Then I’ll be off to new adventures. Lots of unexpected could happen. Just wait and see!
We always got to be ready for the unexpected.
