Feeling better today!

So I ate some rice for dinner and took 2 NyQuil with a little milk. About 20 minutes later, I threw half of everything up including the NyQuil so I took 2 more and went to bed feeling like utter crap.

Styled called me at 1:30am TWICE (I didn’t answer the first time) and asked if I was coming. I told her the time and that I would see her this morning if she would let me go back to sleep and hung up on her. She mentioned something about her clock is all screwed up and yes, obviously it is! I didn’t really hang up on her but I got off the phone as soon as I could (like 10 seconds).

So I woke up at 6:30am feeling much better. I came downstairs to smoke and my son is sleeping on the couch by the front door. What’s up with that? I don’t have the heart to wake him though to ask him.

With all that sunlight coming in already, I figure he’ll wake up soon anyway.

So I will wash my hair this morning and go get Styled to take her to the podiatrist and then go see Forgetful. Forgetful called me over the weekend asking if I would take her to buy makeup. I guess I know what I’m doing this afternoon! Cranky’s son still hasn’t paid me for the first week of the month and I’m waiting for him to pay the 2 weeks he now owes. I’m supposed to take her to a doctor on Wednesday and not sure if I want to if he hasn’t paid me for the past 2 weeks! He’s on vacation in Hawaii right now so maybe I could let him wait until he gets home. Naw. He needs to pay me. I don’t want to get behind. My son has gone over there twice and yesterday he tried to teach Cranky to play UNO but she said she didn’t like that game and wanted to read her paper. Umm, okay. So we left. At least he went.

Speaking of, I have grounded my son because of his actions the other night. No electronics other than his phone (because I have to work and need to be able to get a hold of him) and he has to go see Cranky daily for an hour. Yesterday he also had to help with dishes and go outside to help me pick up neighborhood trash off our street. He also wrote a 2 page letter stating what he did wrong, why it was wrong, and why he will never do it again. He did it all. He will be really good while he’s grounded and as soon as he’s not grounded, he will go right back to doing everything he was before. I’m sure of this. He wanted to go to a friends house today and I told him no because he’s grounded. He was a bit upset by that. Sorry kiddo, you did the crime, you gotta do your time.

My son also completely stopped up our commode the other day! I don’t know if it was too much paper or too much poop but I cannot fix it and have flooded my bathroom 3 times now trying. I plunged it so much my arms hurt and even went to Walmart to buy a snake and that didn’t even work! So before I called an expensive plumber, I called The Godfather. He said let him come look at it before I call a plumber. Thank God! I’m pretty sure he can fix it too.

So it has sucked having to either use my moms bathroom in her room or go downstairs to use the bathroom for the past 2 days. Even my sons friends had to go downstairs. I bet they didn’t like that at all!

I’m going to take one more day off exercising to make sure I’m healthy and not push myself too much. I didn’t feel like eating yesterday and only had about 1500 calories all day but I did eat.

I think that’s it. It seems like plenty! It’s a school holiday here, and so I won’t wake up my son. I will wake him before I leave for work so he can let his Godfather in to fix the bathroom. My mom is working today too so my son will be alone. I doubt he will keep himself grounded. I know I never did when left alone!

  2. Glad you are feeling better. I’m sorry he hasn’t paid you. He needs to though I agree with. I hate it when people don’t pay you. It stinks. Hopefully he’ll pay you soon. I’m glad you are taking more time off for self-care. I think working is great, but you also you need self-care as well. So glad you are taking care of yourself. I hope you have a beautiful day!

  3. Did you find out why your son was sleeping on the couch? Lol I’m curious!
    I think you’re doing the right thing by grounding him. 🙂 He sounds like a good kid!! Funny how part of his punishment is hanging out with Cranky for an hr hahaha.
    Hope the the Godfather can get the toilet fixed for you!!!

    1. The Godfather fixed it within a couple minutes actually!
      He said he was sleeping down there because he was in the bathroom and didn’t feel like going back up the stairs (uh huh – sure). And he is a great kid most of the time.
