prayer, hormones and other stuff

I'm not keeping up with LJ as usual. It's been hot here (finally) and really, really busy back at school. I have so much to do and I guess the good thing is I know WHAT I'm doing this year! I had to lead the staff in a liturgy on Monday and that went well, then I'm on Staff prayers all week to kind of 'lead the way' OMG!
At home we've had a LOT of teenagers in the house lately, often two or three extra for dinner, or four or five all just in the living room when I get home! It's odd, suddenly sharing your home with a whole bunch of tall kids with raging hormones! Both Christy and Asher have boy/girl friends now so the heat is on. All I keep saying is, no sex! No sex. No... Sex...

Yesterday I had a good day until about three pm when I found I had hardly anyone enrolled in my Ethics class who can actually work, my immobiliser remote control broke so I couldn't start the car, a very nice Sister of Mercy passed away from cancer and her funeral was at the same time as an important meeting at school and I was suddenly very miserable. But my husband brought the spare immobiliser remote from home, my AP sorted the other problems, we moved the meeting to 3.30, went to the funeral today at 2.00, discussed the small class and worked out it might work, and suddenly I think it's all okay again! Like a roller coaster sometimes, the first two weeks of school.

On other fronts, well, I have a lot to say but nothing I could write fast, and having just taken up 11 cm of Finn's new school trousers, I really need to get to bed before midnight, so I'll catch up again, my friends. Ciao.

Boyfriends and girlfriends...the fun starts ! It is hard to see our little ones suddenly becoming adult.
Sometimes you end up liking the bfs and gfs more than your own children do ! I have been sad to see a couple of nice young men fade into the distance with ours.

That is JUST what one of the school secretaries was saying, she gets used to these nice kids then that relationship is over and she misses them! Odd, huh! And if you meet them in the street, is it odd? I think I'd feel a bit sad... oh well, just have to see how things pan out. Asher's girlfriend lives next door to my school so she'll always be nearby to me!!

The lighthouse key does not have an immobiliser...

Just saying...

Glad all is now back to 'normal'.

Good point, my dear friend xxx I could have done with the lighthouse that afternoon. It worked out well in the end, and I did what I had to do (like attend the funeral) so I guess it's just a case of getting back into the swing of managing the good and bad days because they are not in my control like the days in the holidays are (kind of!).

*hugs you back*

*giggle* yeah, that's why you're not allowed to visit unless you promise to behave, honey pie *g* Personally, if they are going to have sex, I hope like hell they use protection. I just hope they wait a while. Me, I'm not ready for that!!!!

Not much need of an au pair then anymore...

Just tell the kids what my mom told me at their age, "Oral is moral." Years later she realized I had no chance of knocking anyone up anyways.

It's funny to think I've known you since the children WERE needing that chain-smoking coffee drinking au pair!
I will NOT be telling them about the oral is moral option OMG!
-Years later she realized I had no chance of knocking anyone up anyways.
Hee, now there's a bonus for a worried parent!

Yeah I suppose the faith is rather strict. One the way home I heard the archdiocise of D.C. and Baltomore tell area Catholics they'd be forgiven if they didn't come to mass in 2 feet of snow. Although they did recommend watching in on TV.
