We're pretty much shelter in place, go out only for emergencies , work and limit contact groups to no more than five. We're also encouraged not to visit friends in their houses etc. I think we all know the drill.
Anyway, we're all working from home. I go out for essential groceries , his dad needs to go to the warehouse to pick up the machines he is working on and drop of fthe ones that are done. All the kids are home, my son is doing his school work and life goes on.
It's day five of Spring Break and I've hardly seen him though we are home most of the time due to a lot of closing and cancellations . I've seen him in passing briefly as he emerges for food. He went to pick up his first and last check for a long time and got the impression that the resturarant he was working at was closing permanently. Called his dad in a panic. Turned out he misunderstood we are deep cleaning the resuturant since we can't serve customers in the dining room. Go figure.
SS worked Saturday evening from 5 to 10. Came home with dinner and went to bed. He was up relatively early on Sunday monring which was a surprise. When his dad and I went to lunch I suggested perhaps SS would like to join us since he missed out on going to lunch with his dad to celebreate his birthday.
SS starts his job this evening . He is actually up , cleaned out his room and is helping his dad paint his room. They are actually talking. Well his dad is talking to him. SS took yesterday off from school to catch up on school work. We shall see. He is working in one of the fanciest resturants in town as a dish washer / food prep person. His cough should be interesting. I'm not sure I want to eat in a resturant that has workers constantly coughing and sneezing as I sit here venting hearing him cough and sneeze as he has all week. The vents in my house do not mask sound and I
Sunday was DH birthday. My kids went with their grandparents and DH and I went out to lunch. However, since it was his dad's birthday , he called down to SS to see if he wanted to go with us. No answer, he was sleeping so we left. Had a nice lunch and came back home. His dad puttered around the house doing odds and ends jobs that needed done. Garage organizing, etc. SS never came up , no contact nothing. Dinner time came and went, nothing. Monday morning. School calls, SS was absent for morning attendance. He left at 7:15 so where was he, he told dad he was late for first ho
He continues to do things that makes me wonder. One morning bright and early, his dad wasn't even dressed yet and the sun was just rising he comes up and speaks directly to his dad, no acknowlegement . He asked his dad if he was going to be working on his car that day. His dad replied yes but later . SS replied that he needed to clean out his car and proceded to get a trash bag and go out to his car , two minutes later comes back in and goes right downstairs with said trash bag. Comes back up and is seen wiping down the seat of his car. The car was right in my field of vision from
So the disengagement is going good. He hasn't started his job yet, the resturant had to get through the big Valentine's week before they trained a newbie.
Well SS went out and got himself a job at a local restaurant. He's so into the culinary arts that the resturant owner was impressed. Now if they can work out a schedule around school and his constant sleeping. Of course dad's connection to the restaurant helped I'm sure. Now he can start helping out financially. Buy your own gas kid.
I got upset earlier about something but then remembered not my monkey not my circus and went about my day. Something about how his dad took the whole day off work because he might have to take him into the doctor because he was feeling sick. Well about 4:30 took him in, waiting on the verdict, my guess is flu is that is going around . I'm feeling pretty good, once I put it into perspective that why am I obsesing over everything, if this kid wants to eat crap, sleep all day and skip school as long as there are no ramifications for me not my problem. School called yesterday that he wa
I think he purposely starts his laundry and goes to sleep so he doesn't h ave to do it. He is the only person in the house that takes more than a couple of hours to do two loads. Then the dishes, what is with only putting dishes in the dishwasher if we are right there, Came down this mornign to the dishes from the nine o clock dinner he made himself. Hand wash only pan , dishwasher ready for dirty dishes and three glasses and a mug in the sink, all his. Dad placed in dishwasher and washed the pan, then finished the laundry. Ugh.
