What a week! It started off with an Atlanta gentleman claiming that he was related to us. This was quite a shock to my 89 year old mother.
So, I like a mystery (Palin emails) and got stuck in. And waded and waded. DNA tests are the only answer. I swear I have gone through all the shipping lists from 1903 and I am fecking exhausted.
In the midst of our maybe new found relations, I was busy trying to calm down daughter. Her Leaving Cert results are out….
For anyone who is not Irish, this is a big fucking deal.
I met her in a secluded place and she sat in the car beside me. She was already sobbing and I asked her if she had opened the envelope.
She turned on me and told me not to look at her.
This is not the best time to tell your daughter to cop herself on.
I pretended not to watch as she valiantly tried to tear the envelope open.
She tore little bits of the envelope off. It was all I could do not to tear it off her.
I have taught her how to make banana bread, next on the list is how to open an envelope.
Well she finally read her results.
That girl done good.
