- I can get my right shoe back on! Gratefully, the swelling has gone down dramatically on my ankle and foot. It has been a tough couple of days going to bus stops, driving and hanging out at soccer fields. My boys no longer point to my foot and say, "Wow, mom's foot looks freaky and huge!" It still hurts a bit. I didn't rest it as much as I should. When do moms rest anyway?
- Bullies are busy elsewhere. It has been a quiet week on the block. The taunting kids are off doing something, but at least they are not bothering my son. Weekends are usually the worst. I'm hoping that we will have a "bully free" weekend for Mother's Day.
- Soccer stalker mom alert! I actually saw the soccer mom (who likes to be my shadow at practice) at a school event. She was busy gabbing it up with another mom and barely acknowledged me. I did say hello, but she was so absorbed in what she saying. I'm glad that she found another mom's ear. We'll see if she hunts me down at next practice.
- Vacation blues. My husband and I are in ongoing negotiations about making vacation plans. I keep telling him that I think it would be good to get away. He is not as anxious. I may have to pull out something from my "you owe me" arsenal. Don't all wives have one?
