Patience is a virtue

I have always thought that my grandmother was the epitome of patience. I mean she had 13 children, a ton of grandkids that she helped to raise and some great grands. She lived and breathed it. I am trying to be patient. I feel and taste a job just around the corner. But sometimes we need a distraction to keep us from going crazy. My distraction is a yellow car. It is a bumblebee Transformer. It goes from a car to a robot and back. It is not as easy as it sounds. My hubby and I didn’t read the box when JJ picked out the toy. These Transformer toys are ranked from one to five in difficulty of transforming. We picked either a three or four. I have gotten pretty good since yesterday in transforming it from robot to car. My hubby is a pro with transforming it from car to robot. These transformations take a lot of patience.

JJ wants to see the Transformers movie. I didn’t see the first one and probably will not see the second one. But based on what others have said about it, JJ will not be seeing it either. One of his older cousins told him that he needed to present his case to his parents about why he should see the movie. Here’s the conversation.
JJ—Mommy, I would like to see the Transformer movie.
Me—Why?
JJ—It has cars and sexy girls.
Me—It has a lot of scenes that are inappropriate for a boy your age.
JJ—How old do I need to be?
Me—Maybe nine or 10.
JJ—I’ll be to old to see it. I can cover my eyes and ears during the bad parts.
Me—I’ll compromise with you and allow you to see the old Transformer cartoons if I can find them. The movie is not for you.
JJ—Okay (he says with sad puppy dog eyes)

My son and I love the Black Eyed Peas. He loves the radio version of Boom Boom Pow. We liked it so much that we made a dvd movie of pictures for my hubby's birthday. We haven't decided what our next movie will be about.

This is going to be a busy week. Tomorrow, I will be doing some writing assignments. Wednesday is the interview in Cashiers. On Thursday, I will meet the oral surgeon about my teeth. And Friday, there might be another job interview. I am trying to be patient and calm.
