Teenager expects Pancakes

My son spends the night with one of his friends. When he comes home he asked me why I don't get up on Saturdays and cook him pancakes and bacon like his friend's mom does.

Then the lecture began....

I'm sorry, but I work all day-all week long. I get up every morning at 5:30 and prepare your breakfast, come home and take care of as much laundry and housework that I can while making sure you boys have your homework done and take care of any of school stuff that is due the next day.

That is why i don't get up early on Saturdays and fix pancakes. As a matter of fact, you should be getting up fixing ME pancakes!

I'm probably ADD. I feel I have an adventurous spirit, but I have this other side that is do darn responsible and logical. I talk myself in of and out things all of the time.

I have been this way my whole life. Wanting to f…


So what is today all about? Remembrance. That was a horrible day in US history. I've never witnessed such tragedy in my lifetime before or since. My heart goes out to all of those families affected by 9/11. Things like that should never happen to us, or anybody on God's Green Earth.

I have to get ready for work, yuck, but I felt I needed to post a little something today in remembering that day. I hope everybody has a good day and a wonderful weekend.

God Bless Everyone.
