This morning I took my son for his last day of school and took my dog in to have her nails clipped and get yearly blood work done.
On our way home, we stopped at the bank to get money to pay my moms maid. I saw a classmate of my sons walking down the street and text his mom because school had already started so that was strange. After about 10 minutes of texting with her, she called the school and got a hold of her son who said swimming practice got out late and made him miss the bus so he walked home to get his bike. Umm, really? You would rather walk a mile and a half home to get your bike when you could have walked the half mile to school? Kids, I swear. At least he was safe! I told her I’m sorry if I scared her and I hope she would do the same for me. She said she would. It really does take a village to raise these kids!
After that mess, I got home and started to do dishes, clean the litter boxes, and take out the trash (the maid is pregnant and I wanted to make sure she didn’t go near the litter boxes or lift anything heavy). I played on my phone until 10:30 when she came. I had her go through and pick some stuff out she liked Christmas wise in the garage and she as well as her parents cleaned the house while I started organizing everything.
My son is having some friends tomorrow evening and I want the house to look nice and be presentable (even if it is just for teenagers). Why do I never remember to take before pictures??? Well here is the after.
I love my table! Even with all of my moms stuff behind it, I just keep focusing on the nice table. I left my moms couch and coffee table mess out of the picture (it’s to the left of the 2nd photo) because it still looks horribly messy but I didn’t want to go through her personal stuff. I played on my phone a bit more and then went to pick up my son and his friend. Right before I left, I got a text from my sons friend asking if he could come over too. There was a catch though! He wanted me to pick him up 30 minutes after school in the park so he could hang out with his girlfriend and her friends for a while. Whatever. I had nothing else to do and he’s a good kid. I got all the boys in 2 trips and now his friend is spending the night. They are in his room playing music and video games.
Notice I did not do much today, for once, right? It was nice. I didn’t cook, I didn’t exercise, nada! I guess since I was running all over the place organizing the downstairs is how I got 18 minutes of exercise according to my watch. And hit my daily move goal.
When I got home from school today, I found that Oliver had gotten a Christmas ornament off the tree again and was batting it around.
It seems like he climbs the tree, takes just those off somehow, then plays with them and leaves them for me to put back on to start all over. Doesn’t seem to matter how high I put them or that there are plenty of other balls on the tree, he likes mine.
It’s only 9pm but I am exhausted so I’m in bed curled up with Amber. Have a great night!
