After two wonderful visits, to two very good schools, my son has decided to swim at The Ohio State University next Fall. He is so happy and we are beside ourselves that this terrific program wants our son. The Head Coach is a tremendous man who wants to graduate respectable men. Swimming is important to him, but academics and respectful behavior are just as important. He treats his swimmers like family and they treat each other that way, also. I am amazed that my son is even on their radar, but they have been impressed by him, so we are doing something right. So a million thanks for all your positive thoughts, from months ago til now. He left that horrible abusive coach in March, he went to his High School Coach who is an amazing woman. She has helped to heal him on every level and he has made amazing progress in the seven months he has been with her. Now, if all continues to go as planned, next August he will be in the hands of a man that respects his swimmers and trains them well. I think our prayers have been answered.
Now onto my kitchen. What a mess. The contents of my laundry room are now in my dining room. My fish tank is on the back corner of my table, can you find it?
My kitchen is in my living room. Well we don't actually have a living room, we have a place for my piano. Every surface of my house is covered in a layer of dust from when the tiles were broken up and removed. I look like I live in a bad episode of Hoarders. I expect the television crew to pull up any time now and stage an intervention. I can hear them now, "Lady, you just have to get this mess under control !!!!!" I couldn't agree more.
Happy weekend everyone!
