What am I the only one on earth that cares where their kids are?

I know that everyone thinks that kids should grow up and grow up fast. What happened to being a kid? What happen to a concerned and protective mother? Am I alone.
Today, my son did not arrive on the bus in front of our house, the neighbor boy did though. So imagine my semi panic. Never before have we missed the bus. Alone with the fact that I don' drive and my husband is atleast 45 minutes away. I also have a daughter that drives that can get him. Well anyway, I hit the phone two seconds when there was no son. I called the school and explained that my son was not on the bus. They said hold on and we will check with his teacher. Well you know it felt like forever, by the time they come back, she says a bunch of kids had missed the bus and will be catching it on its way back. I then asked was my son actually one of them. "Do you physically see my child and know you have him?" Dumb me.. I guess. They checked and said yes, and that was all I wanted to know. In between checking with the teacher all I asked was for the bus barn so I could check and see if he was on the bus. You know make it a little quicker. Well I was hung up on, or disconnected. I will give them the benefit of just a disconnection and nothing personal.
When calling back they proceed to tell me, that he was outside with teacher supervision and waiting for the return bus. " Okay, thanks"
When my son gets home, I politely call back the school and say thank you and he made it safely. Feeling okay about the whole thing, for a moment. My son says his last year teacher comes out and says" IS T Lynch here? His mother is calling the office and the bus barn and before long the school board." and they all laugh (adults) Wow that kinda hurts my feelings. All I wanted to know is that he was there, okay and someone was accountable for the situation.
I can't understand and I really dont want to generalize but since he has been at this school. They just don't seem to take things seriously enough for me.
Maybe I need to really consider homeschooling. Or just considering what .... being passive and just let the chips fall where they may.....

Please I will never change. My passion for those that I love, no matter how silly others may find it. I wish that sometimes, I didn't feel so alone in the world of all the people who judge and seem to be very casual about things.
Well I just wanted to vent...

Promise to myself:
I will not change to fit the norm.
I will always be passionate for those I care about
Not to judge the world so harshly.

March 1st, 2008

Well, today is March the 1st of 2008. 47 years ago, a little 5lb baby was brought into this world, by two great people. I was just a little runt of a baby. But boy, have I grown.
I guess today, I am to look back on my life and think about all the joys and love I have accumulated through out the years. I am such a very blessed person.
Don't misunderstand me, I could probably go on about all the things I never accomplished, but I can tell you I can and will survive. I will continue to grow and love and learn.
I am trying to get healthly, well in other words, just small changes in the bad habits I have learned over the years and in turn use the new lessons as tools in teaching my children how to stay healthy.
I have been diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic. Not a real title that I would choose to hold and I can assure you I can sit here and feel sorry for the situation, since no one but myself put me in this one. I am learning however how to control it and to change, and hopefully I will finally lose the weight that has been like a burden all my adult life. I hope that I will have the endurance and the will power to make this change and to continue to see life as a blessing and not a chore.
Well I just wanted to, what ramble it seems on my birthday..
The sun is out, my family is cooking ribs on the grill for me, the birds are singing, and it is a beautiful birthday..
So all of my friends enjoy just today, and don't worry about what tomorrow brings...
love to everyone..
