Yeah, so, it started off as normal taking my son to school and walking the dog. Then my son’s godmother called me to chat about what’s bothering her. We worked out that I will help them this summer by taking their daughter out once a week or so which will give her daughter special attention and let her be without her brothers for a while. They help me with my son so why not?
I then jumped in the shower and drive to take Styled to her hair appointment. I told everyone at the salon that I would see them this afternoon and took Styled to the grocery store and then home. When I left her, I thought about how I was NOT looking forward to spending 5-6 hours with Ms. Sick but I don’t want bad karma by just cancelling on her. I text my ex boyfriend that has done work for her around her house and asked him if he felt like driving her. I told him how long it would be, how much he would make an hour, and even where she would want to go. Luckily, he said yes!!! Yay! So I called Ms. Sick and told her that there was an awful noise coming from my brakes (I’m not completely lying, they are starting to squeal a bit) and that he would drive her.
I was nervous about it even though she knows him. She was happy though! She said she’s sorry about my car and she is so thankful that I got someone to take her that she knows and trusts. Oh thank you GOD for not making me take her! And yes, I do need to get my brake pads changed which I will do next week when I have time. I was so relieved that I wouldn’t have to deal with her. I also asked him if he would drive her next week too since I am busy all week. He agreed to that too. I’m lucky he doesn’t work a normal job and can just do what he wants like me. He’s a nice guy, just not the guy for me.
Instead of having to spend 6 hours upset and frustrated thinking about everything I need to do while I follow her around, I started laundry and picked up around my room. I went to see Cranky who was complaining that I hadn’t been to see her in a while. Well, I talk to her and her caregivers so much that sometimes I don’t feel the need to go over! I told her that I am driving Ms. Forgets (they used to be neighbors) and she asked me if the woman is still smoking. LOL I guess everyone knows!
After an hour visit, I went to the grocery store so I won’t have to while my cousin is here this weekend. I spent $160! Most of that is for my child, drinks, snacks, and lunch stuff. I got myself a couple of salads, some cauliflower rice (the store regular cauliflower did not look very good), some squash noodles, some Bang, chicken in a can so I have a protein snack some days, and cheese for those awesome keto biscuits.
At least now we don’t have to go shopping for a week. Well, I’m not going again until next Sunday. So everything has to last until then. Groceries are expensive!!! Thank God I had a few coupons, it would have been $170. Feeding a teenager is too much sometimes. Maybe I need to get him on Dollar Store foods (JUST KIDDING). My son saw his snacks and said he will not have any problem making it last for a week. Yeah, okay, we shall see about that!
Miss Priss called me about taking her to the beach next Friday afternoon and that’s fine. It’s a long trip and I don’t mind although I hate traffic. That’s okay. I can handle it. I’ll take snacks. 😀
After his last day of school, my son went to a friends house for a while so I got to relax a bit after bringing in all the groceries and taking all the drinks and snacks upstairs. I would have been happy but NO…my foot wasn’t going to allow that! Have you ever had a charley horse? Imagine that kind of pain on the ball of your foot no matter if you sit down, lay down, walk, or just stand still. And it was a SHARP pain in my left foot. I almost cried if that tells you how bad it was! So I turned on Netflix and finished watching Kimmy and caught upon Skin Tight on TLC.
I hit my move goal on my watch but only got 20 minutes of exercise. I will do better. I have to! I know I will tonight when we go to the Astros game! When I walked Amber at 10pm, my mom decided to go to bed and locked me out and went upstairs!!! Thank goodness my son was awake!!! I was pissed!
My cousin and his family got in okay last night and have checked into their hotel. He and I spoke for a little bit but didn’t get together as they didn’t get to the hotel until 9pm. Today I am going to take my son to his therapy this afternoon and spend the rest of my time with my cousin. I am so happy he’s here!
Y’all have a great Saturday!
