we were driving through the city talking about this upcoming school year. i said i'm going to be so bored. she said, no anna, you're gonna have so much school to do! she doesnt understand. i would rather sit on a chair in an empty white room for two hours by myself with nothing/no one else around -than do school. i said, i'm going to be home all week with nothing to do but school. and she said, (-brace yourself here-)
"WE CAN GO TO THAT KNITTING CLASS EVERY FRIDAY"
and i froze. i couldnt move. i just got very wide-eyed and i stared at her in disbelief.
you see my friends, she was PERFECTLY serious when she threw out that offer. i would rather DO SCHOOL than go to a KNITTING CLASS. i said, oh yeah mom, then i can tell people "hi, i'm anna, i'm home schooled so that means i stay home all week doing my school work. i also babysit my friends' little sibings, you know, all four of the hooligans, plus a 10 month old, and for fun, my mom and i go to a KNITTING CLASS on the weekends.
knitting? wowza... anyways, once she came to her senses and remembered who her daughter is, we laughed. hard.
so she's just gonna go by herself.
