Feeling Guilty

Chuck, Diana and I went to the mall last night after work. I asked Beth if she wanted to come but she said no. Diana bought a new watch. It's rose gold and absolutely beautiful! At one of her jobs, they're always needing to know the time but the clock isn't in a convenient place and they aren't allowed to have their phones on them so... she bought a watch.

I sent Beth a text telling her that we were stopping at the grocery store and then we'd be home. She sent me this text:

OK. CAN YOU THREE PLEASE HURRY UP NOW. I NEED YOU TO OKAY? SAY YES OK?

Then a few minutes later:

MOTHER ARE WE GOING TO EAT SOMETHING WHEN YOU THREE GET BACK FROM THE MALL?

I assured her that yes, we would have dinner when we got back.


Wow, I thought that would be a lot more exciting than it actually was. Our lives really aren't that grand. I've sometimes felt a little guilty about the title of my blog, Adventures With Beth. We don't have that many adventures. At least we haven't lately.

Beth went to job class yesterday. She said it was 'fine'. She took a package of mini marshmallows with her last week to share with everyone. They are each allowed one cup of hot chocolate and she wanted to share them. When I asked her if they had hot chocolate today she said they were out of hot chocolate.

...And that's her adventure for this week! :)

I think the reason I read blogs is for snippets into other peoples lives, to see how they are the same as mine and how they are different. So this post is a perfect blog read for me. And I do see Beth's adventures in here. You're evidencing her generosity, communication, coping skills, choices....

When I read the title of your blog, I always believe it to mean your life adventures with Beth. Sometimes living life means doing the everyday things; every day isn't going to be trips to Disneyland! You are honest and real and for those of us that aren't very far into this journey, we need to see and read this. That is why I come to your blog. I enjoy reading that Beth does things that everyone else does--that's really important to me.

I don't know, are any of our lives really that exciting? We just keep doing what we do every day and for some reason people find it interesting. That's great that she can text so well!
