Over the past two weeks I’ve mainly been concentrating on staying busy. If I’m busy I don’t have time to think about the facts that I don’t have a job, I no longer have a boyfriend, and that I’m probably eligible for welfare if I took the time to check into the matter.
Every day I’ve been going to work with my mom to help out with some of her kids. Each morning I get to the school and the kids in her reading group trip over themselves to be the ones who get to read to me. It’s been really fun helping out with them–a couple of the kids are just too cute. They’re all in 3rd grade and they’re reading some books that I hadn’t seen since I was their age, so that’s been a lot of fun. The little boys in the group have been hilarious…one asked my mom about the possibility of dating me and two others fought with each other to see who would be able to hold my hand! I had to draw the line though when one of them asked if he could sit in my lap the other day.
