Tried to Say Goodbye

My neighbor told me before the local public school close for summer vacation that they are going away for the whole summer. I thought they have gone right away when the school close. Anyway, to make the story they didn't. I just don't see them often enough.

Last week, my children (yes I always call them children, not "kid" because I am not a goat) and I started walking before lunch time. And today somehow our garbage are still on the curb. So, I went inside to grab some more garbage because our second can is not full.

I tried opening the door and it was locked. My third child just got out and asked him if he lock the door. He told me that his big brother locked it because he don't want to go for a walk. Well, you know what's next right? I knock on the door while scolding my older son. He finally open it and I went inside to grab some old toys to throw away.

Before walking outside I scolded him again. By the time I got out all I can see from my neighbor was the back of their mini-van driving away. Then I proceeded on putting the old/broken toys to the garbage.

While walking and recollecting what went on, I remember hearing voices behind me while trying to get my son to unlock the door. I was thinking, "hmmm, were they trying to get my attention from across the street to say goodbye. I didn't even try to look back to what was it all about. I hope they don't think that I am trying to ignore them. I don't mind if they think I'm deaf. I just don't want them to think that I am a stuck-up and never bother waving to anyone.

Oh geez, I guess I will find out when they get back. The story of my life...:(

"I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations. I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
