I woke up early for the fact that I didn’t have to take my son to school. I woke up at 7!
I didn’t do anything this morning but lay around and play this game on my phone called Gardenscapes. I’m at level 1000-something and was having fun. I got unlimited lives for 10 hours so yeah.
I jumped up at 11 and rushed to get dressed and leave to go see Forgetful. She was having lunch when I got there and as I was sitting with her, her step daughter in law and grandkids showed up. We all talked for about 30 minutes and then we all left. I told her I will see her tomorrow and the daughter said she will see her Monday morning.
From there I went to pick up my sons friend that is going with us on our overnight vacation. His room wasn’t clean though so I had to go into their apartment and wait but that’s okay since I got a chance to catch up with his mom! She’s so sweet and apologetic over nothing (she thinks her house was a mess – it wasn’t). She handed me money to take him with us. I’m giving it back when we are home. He doesn’t need it and I don’t want to take money from her. She’s being treated for cancer and already had a pacemaker so she doesn’t need to be handing out money, especially when this was my idea. She said she was going to tag along with friends to the casino in Lake Charles LA but ended up staying at home cleaning with her brother there to help her. Umm, ok? You’re supposed to be having FUN when your child is away, not cleaning! Well, whatever she wants to do is fine as long as she’s happy.
I brought the kid home and then we 3 went to Barnes and Noble. I left the boys in their favorite section and went outside to walk around the huge parking lot and get my daily exercise. I haven’t hit 10,000 steps today and not sure I will but I did get my watch congratulations for completing all of my goals for the day. 😂 I ended up buying myself a few books and am going to read the rest of the night.
er the book store, we went to the grocery store. Why I was nice and asked my mom if she needed anything, I have no idea. She wanted me to buy her a honey baked ham already cooked and some soda. So I did. I'm an enabler. I admit it. She's diabetic and I bought her Dr. Pepper. I'm so bad. I spent almost $100 on groceries! And I only went there for milk and dinner! I did run into the lady that has caregivers though and that's good. She's great and has lots of employees so I can just refer people to her if they need help.
I have been in pain. I am not complaining much because I should have gone to a doctor about it a while ago plus I try my best to not complain. I made an appointment with a podiatrist for Tuesday morning. He's the same one that put titanium bars in both feet to correct bone spurs and who made me insoles in high school. He's not near me but I don't mind driving to see him because he is THAT good! I hope whatever is wrong can be fixed with insoles. I can't afford surgery. And I want to walk! I don't want to have to sit around for weeks healing. 😞 Pray that I just need special insoles please! So you know I'm in actual pain if I called a doctor and am going to spend the money. Yep. I'll have to let you know how that goes.
I ate one small chicken leg for dinner from a already baked chicken in a container at the store and now I'm sick. Like I ate too much sick. From that!!! That's one of the BIG reasons I don't recommend surgery as an option to lose weight. Trust me, even after 20 plus years, you will still barf when you eat too much! Sad, right? I have been for a few days now though and I think it's my body getting used to all the exercise and healthier foods. But junk I can keep down with no problem! KitKat? No problem. Cheddar cheese and crackers? No problem. Salad? Barf. Chicken or hamburger? Barf. NOT cool stomach! And some people wonder why I eat cheese and crackers a lot. 😂
This poor kid stinks to high heaven. My entire upstairs reeks of BO! I just made him take a shower and hopefully he put on deodorant!!! I sprayed the entire upstairs with glade while he was in there. He was sitting on my sons bed with no sheets so yeah, I had to spray it down! He's such a sweet kid too. Check out what he wrote on the bathroom mirror:
If you can’t read it, it’s a huge smiley face and it says “thx ms julie”. Very sweet boy!
That’s my day. I’m going to go read. Hugs everyone!
