Sometimes, I don't do the brightest things.
In my defense, it has been a crazy week(hence my absence from blogging and commenting)
Anywho, my boys finally got out of school this week. To confuse me in an already crazy week, my boys each had a different last day of school. This is important(trust me).
My oldest has been scheduled to work as a den guide at a Boy Scout Camp. Very exciting for him, he is 13 and this is his first job like this, even though it is a volunteer job(ya gotta start somewhere).
I have had it programed in my head that the day after the last day of school he was going to camp.
I sit and look at my calendar all day. It has been on the calendar forever.
Well school in our town officially ended on Wednesday, because my oldest is at the High School for the first year, we are new to the final exam schedule and that the last day of school is for make ups so,
if you didn't miss a final you don't have to go.
Now, my trusty husband has been under the weather with a bum wing, having surgery about 4 weeks ago. He is just starting to drive and still not feeling great. I kept telling him that the oldest was going to camp the day after school got out. My husband took that as he was going to the camp on Wednesday since he didn't have school on Wednesday. Ya see where I'm going with this right?
Well as stated, I haven't really been on my game this week...new chicks...hungry meat birds...cub scouts.. work crap...end of year gifts for people...late to bed every night(way too late).
It wasn't until they had been gone 45 minutes into their 1 hour and 15 minute drive that I realized as I was looking at my calender...Thursday...Camp...Thursday...Camp. What the fire truck I said VERY loud! As it dawned on me that the day was Wednesday and they were a day early!
I tried calling my husband...not answering, no surprise, he was driving with a bum wing. Finally a call back from the boy "what mom?" I just laid it on the line and knew that they had a good 45 minute ride back to get it off their chest to each other how they felt about the situation. I think they were pretty much done, shall we say 'verbalizing' how they felt when they finally got home...and bright side... last minute boy was ready and packed a day early.
So, cut to today...the boy kept asking me if I was right today and today was the day...
what can I say...sometimes I am just not the brightest bulb.
