I went to the gym last night, and on my way out (and no, I did not see two women taking a shower together this time), I saw a Dad with his son (or so I assume it was his son) and his son was saying something to him, and the Dad was busy talking to someone else. I wanted to say, hey, listen to your kid, but really? It's none of my business.
Unfortunately, I have done that some lately. Last Saturday night when our friends were in town, we were eating dinner when Audrey was asking me something. I know what was happening, I was thinking WAY ahead of the answer I had to give her and just forgot to answer her. My friend Adrienne spoke up and said, "are you going to answer her?". We laughed about it, but seriously, I need to stop doing that.
I just need to focus, I realize that. But sometimes I get home from work and something needs to be done and stuff needs to be signed and dinners need to be planned and I start tuning stuff out. And unfortunately for Ray, he gets tuned out first. But that's okay, because he can always hit me on the head with a brick and let me know I need to wake up.
I need an evening where there is no pressure of getting ready for work or school. And tonight is it. The girls don't have school tomorrow and I don't have work. I am teaching a class today at work, so maybe that has been what has been bugging me lately. I get worked up about it sometimes. Especially because I know a particularly volatile (and possible multiple personalities, and I am not kidding) person is attending the training class today. I am hoping her "nice" personality shows up today.
