Moving Day

Good morning fellow bloggers and readers! I am awake, hurting, tired, but ready!

I went to my moms last night with another car load of stuff (will it ever end?) and saw she hasn’t taken all of her stuff out of my room. She was downstairs, fresh from a nap, watching a Law and Order rerun on tv. So I asked and she says, “It will get done. Calm down. I have 18 hours.” Okay, minus 8-9 more hours sleep, 1 hour eating, probably 1 hour in the bathroom, etc etc. And no, I didn’t reply with that, I just said Ok mother.

So I guess she tried to put my son to work last night too because he called me from his friends house saying he was going to spend the night over there. Umm, ok? I just told him to make sure he goes back home to walk the dog since I’m not there and we all know my mother won’t do it! I took my son’s tv and all of the add ons over yesterday. I hooked everything up and last night he was really complaining that he couldn’t make anything work. Hmm. I gave him the WiFi password and he said that wasn’t working. He tried to watch a video and the dvd wasn’t working. He couldn’t get the WiFi for his wii either so I really think that’s why he went to his friends house. Silly kid. God I hope she’s done cleaning out my room already. I don’t have time to go check before the movers get here.

I have stinky this morning to go get her hair done. I even called her hair salon and asked if somebody can wash my hair while she’s having hers done. Does that tell you how tired I am? So I’m getting that done, yay. Then of course go check on Forgetful. I hope she’s doing better today. I tried to have a talk with her about why she’s in the home because her step daughter wants to be more direct with her and it backfired on me. This is why I just listen dammit!

All that’s left in the condo for me to move:

Clothes that were in our dressers (5 drawers in mine and 2 in his)

Dishes (pots and pans and bowls)

Refrigerator foods

Bedding (mine)

Bathroom stuff I left here in case I needed it

2 Wind chimes

Astros Door mat

Dirty clothes

3 small and one large Trash cans

That’s it! Whew! One or 2 more car loads. My mom had this great idea. Since I don’t want to mount my tv again on a wall and the tv stand is too big for my dresser, she will take my dresser and give me her lower and longer one so my tv will fit. So I had to take everything out of the bookcase in my room and move that against a different wall. I moved my mini fridge to the corner of the room. So now I will have my bed and a dresser fighting for space. That’s it. Not too bad!

I got a pic from my man last night. He’s still in Arkansas healing. Such a sweet gay man! He doesn’t know any sports though and was confused on what I was saying about the Astros. I guess I’ll have to teach him!

Anyway, it’s already 6:30 and I have to leave by 8 to get to work so I need to get moving! Have a wonderful Saturday!

Houston Astros

Well guys, this is it. It’s the top of the 9th, in the bottom of the 8th we got 4 runs to extend our lead. We are now up 7-1 and in 2 more outs, we can force a game 7 to see who goes to the World Series.

I didn’t talk about my team while they were in New York because we lost all 3 games. So our home team came back home for game 6 being a game behind in the series.

I’m taking my time writing this so I can tell you when we win. Fireworks will be going off and most of the city cheering for our team. Especially the people that didn’t watch in the past years when we didn’t get this far. I did. I love baseball and love the Astros. You know you love your home team when you actually spend $100 on a brick at their stadium for your parents 50th anniversary gift!!! That was 2 years ago. My cousin has and his Mom have 3 there too. It’s a family affair, yes. Every time my cousin visits, we always go to a game. I go at least once a year no matter what.

Giles is pitching and he’s a pretty good closing pitcher. Unfortunately, the Yankees are really trying to catch up so they have 1 out and 2 guys on base. If we get 2 more outs, we win! Come on Giles! You can pitch strikes!!!

Strike 2 after a fly ball caught for the 2nd out.

So here’s the end. We…. WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We won 7-1!!!!!!! We RULE!!!!

Rainy Friday

I woke up this morning about 2 seconds before my alarm to the sounds of thunder. Not what you want to hear when you are trying to finish moving! Argh!

Speaking of moving, I had a thought because my son said something. He told me he wanted to take one last shower in our awesome shower before we move. It’s only an awesome shower because I have the best shower head ever! Why not switch them out? The person buying this place is probably going to gut and redo everything anyway and I love my shower head here! I got it at Home Depot and I just took a screenshot of it because it’s easier than trying to get a good shot in my shower. 😂

So yeah. I need to remember to take that with me. I was also going to take my wind chimes today but now they’ve been in the rain all morning and are wet. AND, the weather guy said it was supposed to rain off and on all weekend! Eek!

Yesterday was good. 2 jobs. Between them, I got everything already at my moms moved upstairs and put away to make room for everything else. I moved all our clothes, shoes, books, yeah, just about everything. My friend asked me what the rush was to move. I’m not really rushing, I’m just tired of living in 2 places and want it to be done. I am giving my neighbors my wine and liquor that’s here because my Mom has way too much already. You’ve never seen anybody so happy either! My neighbor that wants the wine isn’t even in town this weekend and she text me to say I better keep it in the house and come by to let her in to get it on Sunday. 😂 Every time I need to write a check, make an invoice for a client, get a piece of paper for a note, get an address, etc, I have to go to the other house. I’m just done. So I’m moving.

The only job I have today is to go check on Forgetful and I can do that at any time today. I was thinking after lunch to make sure she is doing well. Her step daughter in law told me last night that she doesn’t know what to do about Forgetful packing her suitcase daily and being so unhappy. I don’t know what to tell her either. She can be straight with Forgetful but she will forget soon after what she was told. What I do daily is tell her that she has to get better and can’t go home quite yet. It’s worked so far!

I am meeting The Godfather at my Mom’s at 8 to put up my blinds and change my electrical outlets in my room. Then the ex boyfriend will be there at 10 to finish my closet. I’m going to tell him he has to clean up after himself too. No more mess. I’m moving in and shouldn’t have to clean up after him. Then sending him home and staying away from him. He just drives me batty! Yesterday he accidentally text me saying Awesome. Then he sent me not one or two, but 3 messages telling me he meant it for someone else. ONE would have been sufficient!

So this rainy weekend will be busy but it’s almost over. Then I guess I will have to go back to exercising and quitting smoking so I have stuff to write! Just kidding, maybe. 😉 I’ll also start cooking again once I’ve settled and I’m sure new recipes will come since my mother is diabetic (even though she won’t admit it).

Hugs! Have a great Friday!

Frustrated with other drivers

I know I already posted this morning but something just really made me angry.

First off, this truck was going really slow in front of me so I went around them and then they honked at me. What’s up with that??? We weren’t in a school zone. It’s not my fault nobody taught you to drive the speed limit and that 20 miles per hour in a 35 was NOT fine!

As I’m driving down this street, we have school zones. I know when you are cruising at 35-40 miles per hour, it sucks to have to slow down and go 20 through a school zone BUT IT IS THE LAW!!! Every friggin day I see all these vehicles speeding through the school zones. Those school zones are there to make sure the kids don’t get killed walking across the streets to go to school or home! Yes, parents should teach their kids to wait until the light goes their way but do kids always listen???

This suv blasted by me this morning and then was turning into the school! School wasn’t starting for 30 more minutes so it’s not like the kid was late. You have a kid and you’re speeding through there? That should be a doubled ticket cost! I know, the driver may have been running late. If a cop had pulled them over, the cop would have asked “why are you speeding” and wouldn’t accept any excuses either.

There have been days that cops are sitting out there waiting to catch somebody speeding through but I think they should be there every day in every school zone. You don’t want to have to slow down? Take the next street that doesn’t have any school zones!!! There are days when I don’t want to deal with school zones and crossing guards or police stopping traffic to let cars turn into a school. I always will go to the main drag a tiny bit out of my way to avoid dealing with it. I don’t just speed through by the schools!

A school zone saved my son in Kindergarten. He didn’t want to go with his Dad and pulled out of his dad’s grip and ran right into the street. If it hadn’t been for the car going the school zone speed limit, my son would not be with us today. I’m thankful that driver was doing what they were supposed to. You have no idea how thankful I am unless you’re a parent yourself!

So please share with everybody, especially cops you may know, and let’s get this speeding through school zones stopped!!! And don’t get me started on people still texting and driving, even in school zones. Totally ridiculous! I did make a report to the local Houston police as well.

Hey y’all

I just had to say HI this morning because I love that I woke up to 22 notifications of likes and comments. It always makes my day start out great!

Today 2 jobs, checking on Forgetful this morning and taking Mr. 95 year old and Miss Priss to dinner. Tomorrow I don’t have anything booked yet! This is a great thing since I really need to move most everything today and tomorrow before the furniture goes!

Yesterday, cranky surprised me. She remembered the doctor, knew the way I was getting there, and wasn’t actually cranky! When we were waiting to be called back, I got us both some hot chocolate from the coffee machine because the office is always a little cold. She seemed happy about that too. So yesterday was a good day.

Mr. 95 year old lost his credit card last weekend and wasn’t sure where (although he cancelled it right away). So I looked and also asked the Valet and RC to feel under my back seat to see if maybe he had dropped it in my car and it went under there. 1. We all put our hands into the seats and didn’t find it. The Valet found some piece of trash from sun and ski sports (not from me either) but that was it. 2. Why doesn’t the Camry have a way to pull the back seats down??? Isn’t that a safety thing? I even crawled into my trunk to see if there was a way to push them in and couldn’t do it! I’m going to have to ask the Toyota dealership next time I’m there.

I did get my extra freezer stuff moved yesterday and am now concerned that she won’t have enough room because I still need to move my regular freezer stuff and I almost filled hers already. I’m going to work on that today. The less I have to take there the better furniture wise. I just got this freezer 2 months ago but I have nowhere to put it at her place so I need to try. Maybe take food out of boxes and just cut the directions or something!

The ex boyfriend text me this morning to ask when he should come finish my closet. Even the exterminator that came said he did a shitty job and “why didn’t he clean up after himself?” My son’s godfather said he will come tomorrow and told me that it’s good I called him and not let ex boyfriend do what I need done, especially after the closet fiasco.

So while I was at my mom’s yesterday, I saw that the cats had found my dogs toys. Oh boy! So I took a picture of course. My dog will NOT be happy!

Oh! One more thing this morning! I got a cash offer last night on my place! Too low so we are counter offering but it may be sold! So it’s perfect timing that we are out of here this weekend! Y’all have a great day!
