The Negotiator

I think it was Sam Jackson, that starred in the movie The Negotiator. Well, today it's me! Every single word from my mouth results in a negotiation. I think it's driving me bananas!
Finish eating.
How many? Can I just take 2 bites.
No, 4.

Go to your room for rest time.
When can we come out?
When I call.
How much minutes?

Put on your shoes, we have to run errands.
Where are we going?
The bank, post office, and library.
Can we eat out?
Can we get Sonic drinks?

OMG! I'm still getting back in the swing of things here at home. Doing laundry, cleaning, and catching up on chores are all full time jobs. I'm also getting ready for our vacation in a couple of weeks. When we come home, we'll only have a week and then school starts. So, I really need to be ready for the beginning of the school year before we leave. That means, ordering a backpack, taking inventory and school shopping (for clothes and supplies). I'm sure I make it sound like a huge production...and it is, but I have to have my ducks lined up or I really will go bananas.

On a funnier note, as we were leaving the city last week, JB noticed someone "having a picnic under the street". Although we knew the man wasn't having a picnic, we didn't bother to correct him. You have to love the childhood innocence.
