I didn’t do much yesterday other than going to the store. And I was so mad when I went, I forgot to get drinks! I have to go back today for those.
My mom SO pissed me off yesterday! It was to the point that I decided to live here until I’m done with school (that could be 2 years) and get a good job. Here’s what she said:
1. She says to me: You are bright, but you’re not wise. I looked up the definition of wise on google and here’s what it says which completely proves her wrong!
2. It’s pouring down rain. She says: You need to park outside so I can do some stuff in the garage while it’s not hot. She went outside while I was gone. I guess she noticed it’s raining and hot, and went back in. She didn’t tell me this so I had to park outside in the rain and get soaked bringing in groceries. Argh!
Instead of going off on her, I walked the dog. And I lifted my dumbbells for 30 minutes. Anything to get some of that frustration out. I would have loved to slap her but that’s elder abuse and I don’t hit people anyway (plus I’m not a fan of ever seeing the inside of a jail cell). So I stayed away.
Cranky fell and scraped her skin really bad. I tried to tell her son and caregiver that the hospital wouldn’t do anything but clean it, disinfect it, and bandage it since her skin is so thin but I’m not a doctor so we went to the hospital. I do have thin skin which I have scraped really badly so when they said they couldn’t do anything at the hospital, I felt much better about my comments on the situation! I understand them wanting to take her, she’s 87 and fell with her rollator. We took that away and gave her the regular kind of walker. images from google
I just hope no bills come from the hospital. Her caregiver said I shouldn’t lose any more weight. Really? I’m so glad I don’t listen to people anymore. I still have weight to lose and I am doing it! I plan on weighing 160 or a little less the rest of my life. Not 182 where I currently was on May 31st!
I took 3 exams yesterday. I got 2 100’s and a 97.5. I have 3 left to take to be certified and I am going to try and get those done today and tomorrow. I am also looking at the nutrition program at UH. I also want to see if HCC has a similar plan because it’s so much cheaper to go to school there! I don’t think it really matters where you get your degree as long as you put in the work. Do companies actually look at the school?
Now for the fun part of today’s post. My son is still on beach retreat and seems to be having fun. There are 1400 junior high students there and I finally got a couple of pictures of him shown on the church website!
He did pick fun at Christian music during the church service last night which I wasn’t happy about. Teenagers 🙄I know everyone likes their own music but at least be open to it! I just pray that the Lord speaks to him this week and he will come back a happier child.
Dr. Ed Young is our pastor at Second Baptist Church and he is there with them doing a 30 minute service every evening. Tonight is the night that the kids can walk down the aisle to accept Christ. I guess we will see if my son feels moved enough. If you are interested, you can watch the service live too! The link is live.second.org . It starts at 7:45pm central US time and Dr. Young won’t come on until about 8:15pm. I will be watching. I watched last night but obviously didn’t find my son. In that crowd? No way! If you have heard of my church or our pastor and ever wanted to know why he is such a powerful speaker, tune in tonight! I’m happy that I can watch the service, that they are posting pictures, and text my son while he’s away. I wonder how my parents did it when I went?
Y’all have a great day. I’m deciding if I want to get up and drive in this rain to go to the doctor (I don’t want to but my mother wants to go in the garage again so I will have to pull my car out anyway).
