I hadn’t posted yet today because I’ve been a bit busy.
Yesterday after Styled and Forgetful, we went to the symphony and had a great time! My son got a wand and my mom and I both got a Gryffindor scarf 🧣.
I stayed up until almost midnight cleaning the kitchen last night. I got to sleep until 9:30 this morning! Woo hoo! It was SO nice!
Today, I discussed with my Mom what we are going to get rid of downstairs. I will be so happy once we get rid of some of the stuff! I actually asked her about all the candles, dishes, and a multitude of other crap down there. Then I went to multiple stores for food. Went to Costco and got my sons hot dogs and and drinks and a lot of foods we enjoy eating (like cottage cheese and bacon). Then went to Randall’s but they did not have my energy drinks so I just left. I went to Kroger and got everything else on my list. I ended up spending $300 on food and drinks. My Mom wanted champagne for tonight so I got her a little individual bottle and when I got home, she said, “I thought I asked for 2!” Umm, NO and why does she, by herself, need 2 bottles??? My son nor I drink champagne 🍾! Plus she said ice cream but not what kind so I called her from the store and she says, “I was wondering when you would figure out that I didn’t say what kind.” Really? Then why didn’t you call or text??? OMG I got her Dr. Pepper and a bag of almonds without her having to ask and this is what I get in return. This is why I stay in my room most of the time. Probably why my son stays in his too. Just irritating stuff like that is why I was never close to her. If I send someone to the store for me, I am VERY specific on what brand, what product, everything. I’m also trying to get her to eat at home more and since she likes convenience foods, I got some healthy, no preservatives type frozen foods to heat up quickly in the microwave. Now let’s see if she actually eats them! Real good breakfast burrito, Jimmy Dean sausage egg and cheese microwave biscuits, Nancy’s quiche, and Green Giant broccoli steamer bag. These are things she’s been going to fast food places for so if she can just make them at home, it would save money and not have as many calories or sodium! The joys of having a diabetic mother that doesn’t care about what she eats. 🙄
I brought my snack foods to my room because if I don’t, they will be gone so fast it will make my head spin between the 3 of us and my mother shouldn’t be eating any of it. I haven’t eaten yet today (it’s 3pm) so I broke out an individual can of Pringles and a small bag of Ritz Bits cheese crackers. Not healthy but I’m starving and that’s what I want. My son comes in from playing outside and half my box of snacks is now gone into his room. I should have guessed that would happen! I just hope he doesn’t eat them all today. If I don’t specify how much he can have, everything would be gone today. Growing boys eat a lot!!!
I haven’t sent out invoices yet for the week and my clients daughter in law just text me to ask about it so I guess I need to get that done. I’m going to eat first. I got my exercise in yesterday but it doesn’t show I’ve done anything today, probably because my arm was pushing a cart so it’s hard for the watch to track. I was supposed to take today off anyway.
I finally found the Christmas presents I got for the cats when the cat was IN the tree trying to pull something out. The catnip toys were there! So I took some pictures of the animals playing.
I think that’s it so far. I still need to do laundry so that’s next. Then I need to go down and cook for the week. I’m waiting until tonight to do that.
I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Happy New Years to all. I don’t do resolutions so I’ve been avoiding talking about it. It’s been a good year and a lot happened. I hope 2018 is a calm, healthy, and good year for us all!
