When You Think Your Daughter is Marrying the Wrong Guy


My daughter is getting married. When she showed me her engagement ring, I would love to tell you, I was jumping for joy in excitement. But the truth is… I wasn’t.

In fact, when I heard of the proposal, I got tears of sadness. This wasn’t the man I envisioned for my daughter. Their dating history wasn’t favorable in my eyes and he was rude and disrespectful to me in my own home to the point where we became those parents who closed the door and locked it with a dozen deadbolts.married wrong person

20 Minutes of Chaos

School started back up this week.  I’m so excited because this is my first year without having any of the kids home.  Yesterday was a day of quiet, I didn’t have any cleaning or laundry to do.  I started making dinner early because we had to be at the ball field by 4pm.  I put rice in the rice cooker and had pressure cooked my meat.  Feeling ahead of the game I left early to pick up the kids since our school parking lot has been a bit crazy.

By the time I got to the school, it appreared that everyone else had the same idea.  There wasn’t much parking left but I was still able to park within the same area I normally do.  My kids never saw the car, so we ended up leaving late.  I needed a few ingredients at the store… which put us getting home even later.

By the time we got home it was 3:40 – we had 20 minutes to get everything done.  And why is it when you are rushed that all types of chaos happens?
