1. Call doctor re: Rojo's meds - describe insomnia, incessant humming, defiancy, crying jags and constipation as result of new med
2. Address insomnia, humming, defiancy, crying jags and constipation for the FOUR day weekend he now has, after being in school for a full 6 1/2 days.
3. Try to not go cuckoo as he follows me around the house for 14 straight hours, four straight days, humming the theme song from "The Pink Panther" while blowing into his recorder.
4. Continue to do my work for which I am being paid to do, but must now do while accompanied by said "music".
5. Prepare 3+ meals a day times number of people living in/visiting home, since we wouldn't want anyone to have to eat what others are eating, that's so passe.
6. Keep up with laundry, house work, bill paying, phone calls, friendship crisis', etc., with said "music" 2" away at all times.
7. Don't forget I have a daughter, too, that is also home for 4 days, has plans, would like to be taxied back and forth to said plans, but boy with recorder doesn't want to go, so figure out how to pull that off.
8. Answer husband's requests sweetly and patiently, all the while enjoying the "music" and constant presence of beloved son.
9. Make plans to escape in my "free time".
10. Keep sense of humor. That which doesn't kill us, only makes us funnier.
