Extrovert Benjamin

Last week Benjamin came in from his second job interview to tell us that they did more role playing than answering questions. Then he said:

' l have used all my extrovert points for then day.'

Then he proceeded to go to his room, shut the door, and only came out the rest of the afternoon and evening for dinner. 

Yep.  No more words left for this one.

Another One from Benjamin

Since Benjamin has gotten his driver's license, his next item on his (more like mine) to-do-list is to get a job. Last week he was to fill out an on-line application for a local fast-food restaurant that a friend owns. I asked Benjamin if he wanted me to help him with the application.   He said, no, that he would wait for Dad. 

I told him I would be glad to help him. His response?

'No, I'll wait for Dad. He has a real job.'

I was NOT happy with THAT comment! And neither was Melissa! We both were sputtering for a comment!

I finally said, ' I HAVE a real job! And a college degree you know!!'

Yea....he still just wanted his dad help. 


Pray for this child. Pray that he lives to leave this house.

Brown Thumb

 

Last spring I read that it was possible to grow tulip and daffodil bulbs in a container.  We really don't have a place here to plants bulbs, so this was a great idea as I love these spring flowers. 

But. 

This. 

They looked so promising a few weeks ago. But today? 

This. 

Practically dead. 

My brown thumb strikes again. 

But I'm ever hopeful. Today I planted some summer flowers in my front pots along with a little basil. 

May these live long....and prosper.
