Yesterday I had my weekly shots and work. Here is a quick recap of the day:
7-8:30 drive for Lyft
9-10 doctor visit and shots
10-12:30 drive for Lyft
1-3:30 take new client for X-ray
4-5 at home to eat and chat with son
5-7:30 drive for Lyft
At 9pm last night, my son tells me he’s getting an award for his grades this year. Since the kids have to dress up, I tell him to try on his suit. You should have seen it! It’s only been a year since we bought it. The pants could now almost be capris and the shirt wouldn’t button around his belly!
I take a picture of the award letter and send it to my son’s father who says, “I’ll try to make it” 🙄 I send it to my bestest friends and they are all happy and excited for him. I give it to my mother and she says, “Again? He’s such a smart kid!” He got an award last year too. So today I have to take him out of school a little early and go buy him a new suit. Well, slacks and a nice shirt. Coat and tie are not required.
I am very proud of him. I just wish he wasn’t growing so fast!!! 5’9, 175 pounds, and still 12 years old for another month??? Crazy!
So after all this, he tells me (not asks) that he needs eggs in the morning. Excuse me??? I give him a funny look and he says, “Mother, will you make me eggs in the morning?” I answer “We’ll see”. I was asleep by 11pm and he was asleep by 10.
This morning, my alarm goes off at 5am and I decide to make eggs for breakfast as well as croissants for him. I made 4 eggs and those packaged croissants that he loves. I text him when everything was done at 5:40 and 5 minutes later, he’s downstairs ready to eat. Maybe I should make breakfast more often? I’m so glad it got him out of bed!! I ate one of the eggs too so it was win-win.
I am driving for Lyft again today. You may notice that I’m not mentioning Uber. I need to make 40 more drives for Lyft (after yesterday) to get my sign on bonus. I figure why not do it this week and just have that done. Lyft slows down around 10am until around 1-2pm which sucks. So I scheduled to go get groceries for a client during that time. When I went for her last week, it was the first time and I was very nervous about picking the right fruits for her and getting everything correct. So when she asked me to do it again today, I was happy since I must have done a great job!
This is my life. I got a total of 3 new clients that need help sometimes which is good for me. I’d like to make at least $500 a week so I can save money. I’m getting there!
Have a great day!
