Yesterday, my son was so rude that I took his phone on the eve of his birthday. Pretty bad, right? Then he did his chores, did laundry, packed, and was trying to talk me into giving it back until he finally went to bed around 10pm. I was up until 11 and then woke up at 3:45am and have been awake since. My son wants a birthday breakfast of eggs, toast, and cheese. That is doable, I don’t even mind.
I’ve been trying to figure out what woke me up. Could it be all the thoughts running through my head? His birthday and the fact that he’s 13? The week long trip he’s leaving on when we have not been apart other than when I went to Vancouver for 2 weeks for training when he was 6? A noise? My dog? I don’t know, I am awake though! Now yawning again but still awake.
I got cancelled on yet again by Ms. Forgets yesterday. I sent her son the invoice for the week of the 3 “same day cancel fees” and he said he wished it was for driving. Well me too! The bill would have been much higher! I need to be paid! He did pay me for those cancel fees though which I really appreciate.
I was kind of glad she cancelled on me. The outside of my knee on my right leg was hurting VERY badly. I googled to see what’s there and it looks like I strained the lateral muscle. According to google, I just need rest and it will be fine. So what did I do? I did arm strength training with dancing in between! 😂
Today I will go swimming, do yoga, or just rest. I’m not sure yet. It depends on how I feel. I did do 9 days in a row and I would like to keep it up (those endorphins are awesome). I am not going to hurt myself further though!
My son heard the music I had Alexa playing and came to my room and when I was done with my dumbbells and he had walked Amber, we played a bunch of different songs and were dancing and singing and talking. That was really nice. I wish we had more times like that. Even my mom said she’s glad that he and I talk so much. I think it’s because he trusts me which is great.
I am tired of waiting for people that say they will help get my tv on my wall (it’s been quite a while) so I asked my ex boyfriend if I could pay him to do it. He agreed. I haven’t seen him since last year. I have spoken to him through text but I haven’t seen him. This should be interesting. He said he will come tomorrow afternoon after church. That works out well since my son will have already left and my mom will be at work. It will be great to be able to watch YouTube workouts on my tv instead of on my iPad. Do you know how hard it is to see what to do on a tiny screen while you’re moving around?
We got my son’s snow cone maker out last night and cleaned it up and tested it. He loved being able to have it so if any of his friends come today, we will be ready. I actually had to take apart our ice maker, clean it, and let it make more ice before I could even use the snow cone machine. There was some yellow gunk in the bottom of it. Who knows when that was cleaned last! It’s perfect now and that’s what matters.
My son didn’t ask if he could have people over on his birthday. He just went on Snapchat and invited anyone to come by. This is how I found out that he was having guests today. I had a parent text me last night asking what time and I was like, well, whenever I guess! We don’t have any plans today so why not. I like having the kids come by for the most part. I like knowing they are safe. I do not look forward to the high school years when he will want to go to parties and such. I am glad that I have always told him to use Uber and call me in case of an emergency. I ingrained that into his head when he was VERY young! The funny part is, no other parent has contacted me and none of his friends have said yes or no.
I guess I should get out of bed soon. I’m cold outside my warm covers though! I have made it through half the month of June without stepping on the scale and it gets harder every day. One more week and it should be a habit, right? That old saying of habits take 3 weeks to make? Guess we will see!!!
