Stressing and Bragging and lots of things at once
I am leaving to go on the Disney Fantasy this Saturday. I will be flying into Fort Lauderdale on Thursday night, meeting a friend and driving to the ship on Saturday. Very excited.
I have gotten involved in a fish extender group. I'm not sure that was the best thing to do as my creativity is so limited. I am painting picture frames and end up with paint everywhere and it is just a chore for me. Lucky me I have today off from work. I am in pretty good shape but still have hours of work ahead of me.
Here is the real reason for my post. I have HOURS of work on the fish extender project and my ADD College Senior son has two big projects due ths week and he needs help. So the excitement of the FE is now stress - stressing over something that is fun so that I can help my son with his school work. One thing is due tomorrow and one is due on Thursday. And of course they were not assigned yesterday. LOL So for this I am looking for sympathy.
SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY, I want to brag that this is my ADD son struggling with his college work in his senior year. He will be graduating this year. I am so proud of him.
And even more importantly I want to encourage the parents struggling with kids with this issue. It can be done. I realize not in the case of everyone. I go crazy that we are still having the same issues with school work as we had in second grade, but we are getting there. This is my son's 5th year in college and he will be receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice. He is already a reserve officer and will be a wonderful full-time officer.
So for the next 72 hours I will work, pack, get that homework done and get my stupid fish extenders done. Good thing it will be a relaxing cruise. It's funny that I can specifially remember taking a breather by playing solitare on the computer. Now the breather is the DIS.
Life's too short for wasting, for ifs and might have beens,
Life's too short for wondering if you could have lived your dreams.
