I woke up at 4:20. And no, I don’t smoke the good stuff so why was I up at exactly that time??? I haven’t gone back to sleep. I caught up on my reading on WordPress and waiting for my mother to wake up to see if she’s actually going today. It would be nice!
Yesterday was good. You guys saw I got my nails done and I took Forgetful to her hair guy. He rolled his eyes so much at me whenever she repeated a question that I thought he would stay like that. And poor guy has shingles! He had it covered with some kind of cream, I hope that keeps anyone else from getting it. I don’t know if shingles is catching anyway. But she was in a good mood and we are going shopping for Christmas presents for her family tomorrow and lunch at her suggestion. Her step daughter in law told me what the grandkids (her kids) wanted although didn’t say what she wanted! Oh well. I told Forgetful that she should probably go with gift cards so people can get their own stuff and won’t be disappointed. She told me she got them this huge thing of different kinds of dinner rolls last year and it didn’t go over well. Umm, yeah, I’d feel the same! NO, I didn’t actually tell her that!
So I tried to fix my commode by myself yesterday. It’s just the arm that broke. That should be easy. NOT. I took out the old bar and handle but the nut in the tank is so corroded that I was actually trying to saw it off with a handsaw. I couldn’t do it. My son couldn’t do it. I couldn’t pull out the little pieces. I even chipped my damn toilet trying! So I called The Godfather and he’s coming this morning to fix it. I feel bad. I was trying to do it myself without having to call for help. I should have been able to. And I’m trying to save money too! At least The Godfather won’t be as expensive as calling a plumber! Maybe I should have him check the drip on the washer while he’s here. Hmmm…
Also, some guys are coming over here today to connect cable all over the house since Xfinity said they can’t do it for liability reasons. So it’s a day filled with strange men in the house! Then I have to go see Forgetful and then try to make cookies if I feel up to it. I hope so!
Exercise yesterday was really good. When I got home around 4, I went out for a 30 minute walk. 20 fast walking and 10 at a slower pace. So I had my exercise done before 5pm. That was nice. And my mother was happy because I wasn’t walking outside wearing my black sweater at night. She thinks nobody can see me and I think I’m so damn pasty that everyone can see me! I would probably be a bit more noticeable if I still dyed my hair blond but I’m not going back to that! Too much time and money that’s just not me anymore. Plus my son and I walked around the block after dinner to just have a chat and for me to finish off my 10,000 steps for the day. So I was thinking that today I will try and get my walk in before my son gets home from school. Wouldn’t that be nice? Be able to just hang out with him? I hope he’s willing to walk with me again this evening too. I enjoyed that and I think he needs to go out more too. He may just be doing it because Christmas is 11 days away and he wants presents but he’s going to have to keep it up after Christmas too!
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Some of you are about to go to sleep and some are like me just waking up. It’s 5:41am and I’m going to get my day started!
