The Teen left the gate open on Monday night and Kona got into the rec room that contains 80 gazillion Lego pieces and the garbage from the Teen's weekend takeout. So Tuesday afternoon Kona threw up the remains of 4 wooden Teriyaki Chicken Skewers and a couple of flattened pennies from the zoo. The wooden skewers were the scary part - they looked like a handful of toothpicks, very sharp toothpicks. So guess what - Kona made his SECOND trip to the Emergency Vet for stomach X-rays and induced emesis.
Then, Puck brought me his new laptop (that he purchased with the proceeds of a years allowance, birthday money and the sale of his old video games) - he changed the password and made a typo and he couldn't re-create the password. I nearly cried. Eight hours later, I had re-loaded the original software onto the computer and I crawled into bed around 2 am.
ETA: The Teen's birthday gift was a subsidized purchase of a new cell phone - he hasn't even finished paying for his half - the phone came home yesterday with broken pixellated touchscreen. Luckily we made him pay for insurance. Sheesh.
Today, the sun is shining and my knitting looks all pretty sitting on my desk waiting for me to pick it up.
(Seriously? The latest recorded snowfall in Minnesota was May 26?) I'm taking my mom out for a belated Mother's Day lunch, going to watch the Teen play Lacrosse this evening, and then we are going to watch the Varsity battle for a spot in the State Finals.
Also? Wishes for a speedy recovery Senator Kennedy.
***tongue inserted firmly into cheek**
I wonder if that was my subconscious typing?!
I am one of those mothers.
Sending you and Kona hugs and prayers. And remember this too shall pass.....then one day we will laugh at it all.
Good luck to the Varsity players!
