I got up extremely early after only 5 hours of sleep. You may remember that from yesterday’s blog. I took my son to church and came back home and stayed in bed just piddling on my phone until my mom left for church.
I went downstairs when she left and made keto bread!
When it was done, I put the ingredients out to make meringues.
Not much! I picked up my son and we went to Starbucks as he wanted to try a Frappuccino and then wanted to go to the gym. I came home and made the treats. I totally screwed the first batch up. I didn’t mix it long enough and they were flat and runny. After those were in the oven, I kept mixing and got the liquid a little thicker (although still ended up pretty flat). They still taste amazing though an totally sugar free and 2 calories per cookie.
I decided that since I had bread, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich was in order. I got sugar free raspberry jam and powdered peanut butter so I made a sandwich and oh how it hit the spot! Oliver wanted to sit in my lap as I waited on the meringues so I pet him for a while. I started to not feel very good soon after (maybe allergies from cat hair?) so I quit doing everything after cleaning the kitchen and watched Netflix.
Miss Stevens was weird and I played games on my phone and was on Instagram most of the movie. I do not recommend it. Before We Go was alright, kind of sad that it was a romance movie with pretty much NO romance at all! Wild Alaska on the other hand is 3 episodes and talked of the different seasons, how animals live there, and what the people living there do to get ready for the seasons. Kris, I want to visit!!!
BFF tried to call me on her way to work but I couldn’t answer, I felt that bad. I slept off and on all evening and finally took some NyQuil around 7pm and was out before 9. I didn’t wake up until 7:30 this morning. I know she reads this so hey girl, I’m sorry! I can chat today.
Now let’s talk about today.
The only thing I have to do work wise is take Cranky to her doctor this afternoon. Not sure how that is going to go. Cranky is not walking well at all, is more and more confused, and it’s very sad. I’m scared her doctor will tell me that it won’t be more than a year from now that we will lose her. I hate losing these people! Mr. 96 year old (he turned 96 this month) is not doing well either. I haven’t driven him in a few weeks and I may never get to drive him again, I guess it just depends on how he feels. He’s in a lot of pain and has to have 24 hour care. It’s just sad.
I need to make my sons lasagna that he wants. I have to brown a pound of beef, make Kraft Mac and cheese (2 boxes), then put that with shredded cheese and tomato sauce and put it in the oven for 30 minutes. It just sounds like a lot to me right now. I decided to make a deal with him. If he can stay awake all day today (he woke up at midnight), I will make it when I get home from taking Cranky. If he’s asleep, I won’t. He said “fine” so we shall see if it works! I need him to get back on a regular daytime schedule. I hate having to tiptoe around and since he’s asleep, he can’t walk his dog so I have to. Not cool but I do love my Amber so I do it! Even in 100 degree heat. Here is she sleeping next to me in my bed.
My mom has psoriasis. She always has. When she was on Jeopardy back in the early 90’s, you could see a spot on her face. She hates watching it saying that’s all she sees. She went to a dermatologist last week and was given a prescription medicated lotion to use every other day all over. Well, as most people, she can’t do her own back. Guess who has to help her? YEP! Me! I got out the gloves that my Dad’s doctor had given me when he started to need help (I’m so glad I kept them although I ha kept them for when I was going to paint my old condo) and I have them ready to put on to do this. Yuck – but this is one of the reasons we moved in, to help her. So that’s my new morning job daily whenever she wakes up. Oh joy!
It’s 9am so I guess I better get up and get moving. Gotta take my vitamins with a Bang energy drink and jump in the shower. I’m still sniffly and tired, I just have stuff to do. Y’all have a great day!
