I need a job to pay for that vacation.
I want a solution for my son’s emotional hysterics.

(Best friend moving has not gotten easier, it’s gotten worse. And it comes out of nowhere, and is only a visible symptom of his general anxiety. This is difficult for all involved, and is leading me to look into all kinds of options I never would have considered. For example, homeschooling or a private school for twice-exceptional learners. Sigh. See previous need on job.)
I want a MacBook for Christmas.
I need Princess the PMSing Laptop back from the shop already.
I want to curl up on the couch and read or watch TV and just let my emotional breakdown of this afternoon fade away.
I need to start herding the boys towards homework.
I want a glass of wine.
I need a glass of wine.
Wants vs. needs. You never know what’s on the list on any given day.
You might want to be a little more specific about that “temperatures in the double digits” thing. Technically the -18 we had this morning was double digits 😛
I’ve got wine and homeschooling books (I was planning to HS mine until a charter became an option. Still might depending on learning styles/ needs as he gets older- if what I’ve read and you’ve told me about 2E kids holds true for mine). Come on by anytime for either. Open ear for vents included.
I could have written this post myself! My child’s best friend is moving in several weeks and I just dread the thought of how the resulting emotional turmoil that we are sure to face. I need a job to pay for the international airfare to visit this best friend. I want a trip abroad to visit this best friend. See – I’m right there with you :-).
Eek- I meant to delete the “how” in the second sentence. Oops!
Emotional hysterics are the worst. On everybody’s part.
I hope you had your wine.
