Because of Navar’s new career choice, soon to be a middle school teacher. We have been working on being aware of our bad language. That’s why I have been watching my “words” while I am blogging. The other day I noticed Navar was cussing up a storm. I thought Holy shit, if he keeps cussing like that he’ll be fired in heart beat. What are we going to do? I got out a piece of paper and said that I would charge him for every cuss word. $1.00 for the F word and .25 for the S word and .25 for the D word. I figured I would make some extra money for those expensive Summer sandals that I’ve been wanting. Well, we were going at a pretty good clip, I was having so much fun saying, hey that’s a F word and running over to the fridge to write it down. I was really racking up the dough. Well, the Bastard changed the rules on my Ass and he said “Two can play this game!” He started to charge me! When I would cuss, he would go over and cross out one of the words and the amount. Sigh, so much for those cute little sandals. We were laughing about it this morning, and he said” I didn’t know you cussed so much.” I said” I didn’t either”. Funny when you start keeping track it’s a bit of an eye opener. Hopefully we will pull ourselves together in time. He starts student teaching this Fall and after that he will be looking for a job having his own class. Seems like just yesterday he was getting laid off. It’s so amazing that in the down turn things can turn around for the good. It can be a bit tortuous, letting go of the old ways and life and trying to find a new way of fitting in. I’m still working on my part, there does seem to be a little light at the end of the tunnel.
