I am having a super, hard time letting go.
My oldest boy is 14. He wants to go on a
trip with his friend to a theme park. I'm not
I have a hard time letting my kids go off with
other families. I have a super hard time letting them
sleep over at someone's house.
I'm just paranoid. I'm scared for them. I imagine all
kinds of weird things that "Could" be happening.
Help me. Give me some words of wisdom.
Tell me I'm not alone.

It's gonna be a great day.
This is the last Monday of the 2009-2010 school year. Next Monday is an official holiday, so there will be no school then.
As the school year winds down, I find it harder and harder to get my kids to get out of bed in the mornings. Anyone else having this problem?
As you all may guess, I sometimes am very tired myself in the morning. Having stayed up till the wee hours getting my fix of computer time. However, I still get up each morning and try to get everyone dressed in the right clothes and fed, if they want to eat, lunches made and take them to school.
This morning on the way to take my elementary age child to school, I sang out, "It's gonna be a great day!" Not that I have anything special planned or anything, but it just came out.
My little one looked at me with sleep in her eyes and said, "Mama!" "Yes, lovely", I said. "Please stop singing that." "But it is gonna be a great day, I'm sure of it." "Yes, but I'm tired, so please stop that singing."
Oh well, that's what I get for waking up in a good mood. LOL.
Y'all have a blessed week!!

Anyway, today is Table Topic Tuesday, If you want to join in on the conversation, hop on over to Shannon's and link up. I am particularly interested in everyone's answer for today's question, which is:
Is it harder for you to speak kindly or honestly?
Unfortunately, for me, it is not hard at all to speak honestly. I open my mouth and things just come flying out, even if I don't want them to sometimes. I try to remember how I would feel if things were just blurted out. And to be honest, I have gotten a lot better, but I am no where near what I'd like to be.
How about you?

I absolutely despise the horrid pain and burning and back pain
that accompanies a urinary tract infection. Not only is is painful,
but I really loathe feeling like I have to pee every five seconds.
It messed up my day with my family yesterday. We took my MIL's boat
to my home town and my parents and aunt and her husband and my brother
and SIL and my beautiful great niece all got on the boat and proceeded on a
small ride across the river to a wonderful restaurant to have lunch together.
I haven't been home in a long time. So I was kind of aggravated that I was
feeling so poorly. I wound up missing the ride back because I had my dad
take me to a Doc in the Box cause I couldn't stand it anymore.
This doctor, actually a physician's assistant, concurred that it was a UTI
and proceeded to write me a scrip for Cipro. Which is an antibiotic. He also
wrote me a scrip for something called Peridium. I have never heard of this
medication before. But, it has been about five years since my last UTI.
It is a urinary tract analgesic. You ever heard of that before? Let me tell
you, he is my new best friend. Not to have to suffer the pain and burning
and the awful back pain is just a Godsend. So, next time, if you doc doesn't
mention it, ask for it. It so works.!!
