I spent the day running around, first to pick up Matt’s transcript, then we ran to the West Perry High School to talk to the guidance counselor and math teacher about signing up for some classes run by the local community college, then ran him home and ran back a half hour later to take a check for the application fee (I forgot my checkbook with me to the meeting). After that Matt’s order from some computer components company arrived so he starts to dive into updating his computer and installing a new hard drive. He got an extra one so he can have a double boot like I have on my own. So I take him to the computer guru to install Linux. Of course there’s a customer ahead of him, and 2-1/2 hours later we finally leave. He watched this guy install it on someone else’s computer and, in the interest of saving money decided he knows how to do it now and will save himself the $50 it would have cost to have the other guy do it. And it’s after 5 and I feel as if I got nothing done today on my own to do list. I guess today was all about Matt, which is okay. It would have been nice to hear a “thanks, mom” though.
Come to think of it, I probably took my mother for granted, too, when I was his age. Yeah, I’m sure I did. So I guess I grew up and had one just like me, lol.
