Been lazy

I got better on Wednesday. I was lazy about blogging because I had a quiz yesterday in Nutrition. That is followed by an exam this weekend.

The Anatomy exam I ended up with the following grades which worked out to an average of 88. 80,75,80,100,90. My Anatomy Lab first exam I got a 101!!! Woo hoo! So I feel like I am doing pretty well. Let’s hope that I do okay on the nutrition exam.

While I was sick, I started watching Friends on Netflix. I like it! Now I can’t stop watching. I am almost done with Season 1 and there are 10 seasons! I’ll be watching this for a long time. It’s good though.

I have worked. Wednesday and today. Miss Priss and I ran errands for 3 hours. I had her sit in the back seat and kept my window cracked to make sure I didn’t pass anything to her. We went to a grocery store, vitamin shop, dry cleaners, and even Walmart. I did some people watching while she was shopping after I went to get her Chick-fil-A. Crazy people that go into her Walmart!!!

I took Styled to get her hair dyed this morning and set an appointment to get mine dyed before I go on vacation. I went grocery shopping for her while I waited and then went back and did some Anatomy homework. I had emailed my professor on Wednesday to let him know that I was sick and would be back on Monday and he finally emailed me back today telling me that we don’t have school on Monday but he would see me Wednesday. Yay!

For Valentines Day, I decided to get my Costco membership back. Then I went and got new pillows and some toilet paper. I hadn’t gotten new pillows in quite a while and since we both just got over the flu, I thought now was a good time to replace them. I also washed all of our bed linens. I also decided to move my sons bed into the corner (it was a couple of inches away from the wall). When I saw all the trash under his bed, I left the mattress off until he cleaned and vacuumed it.

It’s all clean now and he has a friend over.

This afternoon, some old neighbors cane by to pick up a few board games and hang out. I also got them to take 3 Christmas boxes of stuff! They helped me pick up the fallen boxes in the garage and I have bad news for anyone that was hoping I would send them a Santa. The box of Santa’s fell and most broke. Well, good news for me as I wanted to get rid of them. I am excited to be cleaning all this stuff out. It’s so nice when things are clean and organized and minimal crap. It was nice to see them!

I got a new award for not smoking. I love my Cue! And the guy on the right vapes as well so we had a blast today.

See you guys later!

Hard to stop

I am still just trying to get stuff done schoolwise and cleaning out this house.

I was looking for puzzles my mother used to have the other day and she told me to look under the dining room seat. I open it up to find SO many more dishes! Why does a person need 7-10 sets of dishes???

I am trying to do my school stuff but today I just can’t. It would have been my dad’s 77 birthday today. I started crying when I pulled up my son’s Snapchat and saw what he posted this morning.

My son may be a pain to me and my mother sometimes but he loved his PaPa.

Last night I was cleaning out a box in my closet and cannot for the life of me remember who gave these to me or why I have kept them for who knows how long.

So they are up for grabs! I bought the cutest socks for .99 from LootVault and they came in the mail so of course I am wearing them today.

Yes, along with my only pair of sweatpants that are from VSPink. They are really comfy!

I worked out the other day dancing and I am hitting my watch goals daily.

I have been having a tough time getting in to talk to somebody at school about what I can do for a career. I finally spoke with an advisor yesterday and they sent me to the career center to take a strange aptitude test. This year said I would be a good teacher (oh hell no), a good medical care person, or good in human resources. It suggested I get a masters in psychology and manage a care center. Really??? Hmm, I guess I have more thinking to do now. I am supposed to email my current resume to the career person and they will call to have me come meet with them about finding me a job and seeing about keeping me in school for a new career. We shall see if that goes okay.

I say hard to stop because I have to keep going. I want to just sit here with a pint of Halo Top and cry and watch sad cheesy movies but I have stuff to do.

I miss my Dad. Like crazy. Have a good day.

Saturday and procrastinating

All I have been doing is working and studying. That’s why I haven’t really posted.

Last night, I got out my calendar and wrote every due date for every class in it. It’s not that bad except the one day in April when I have 3 exams on one day. That’s going to be killer!

Yesterday I had to go to 3 different campus bookstores to get the 2 books for my Anatomy class. And why do they want to use the much more expensive ones??? There was a book for $100 but of course that wasn’t for my class, mine was $200! And the lab book was $65! But I now have them and can study. Don’t you think they could give you a binder that fits all the papers from your book? Why do they give you the book like this? Thank goodness I have a kid in school so we have extra binders!

I also copy and pasted my nutrition text into word and then had to go through to make it look like it does on the screen (when you copy and paste, it puts it all together in one big 19 page paragraph). I did the first 3 chapters so I can study those as well this weekend.

I had 3 math things due already yesterday. On the Pre-test (stuff from college algebra), I got an 80. On the new homeworks , trying to do it by myself, I got a 29 and a 33. I called on my friends that love math and am working with them to help me so I don’t fail this class. I may have failed the first two homeworks but there are many more!

I ordered a Cue flavor from the Cue website (www.cuevapor.com). It’s called Orange Whip and it is so good!!! It tastes like orange creamsicle from back in the day.

I asked the smoke shop here if they have it and they hadn’t even heard of it. I told them I would come by with it this weekend so they can try it. I really like the employees at this place if you can’t tell. I may start ordering from the website though as they have discounts and a point system for freebies plus it’s a dollar cheaper per cartridge (although they do charge shipping). It’s been 2 weeks since I smoked an actual cigarette!!!

I still weigh 150 so I can’t complain about that. I went running the other day and was able to run faster as I mentioned in my last blog. I may go out today too, can you tell how much I am procrastinating from studying???

My mother is still dating this man she met a few weeks ago. They seem to be getting along great. I’m not sure if I should be happy for her or upset that it’s only been a little over a year and a half since my father passed away and she’s already saying how she could marry this guy. She is definitely smitten with him for sure! It’s the first guy she’s gone out with though! An she feels like she needs to tell me intimate details how she doesn’t want to do this or that and she’s having fun. I am just screaming inside my head all the time when she talks.

On the lighter side, here are a couple of jokes I found on Facebook and Instagram.

Oh! I went to put the Christmas ornaments in the garage and saw that all of the other Christmas boxes had fallen over and well, I have a huge cleanup job now!

So I definitely have something to do while I procrastinate!!!

Have a wonderful Saturday and let me know what you’re up to!

Another nothing day

Woke up, took my son to church, went grocery shopping, came home, cleaned out the downstairs coat closet and the upstairs linen cabinet. I finished reorganizing my room and washed clothes and sheets today. I finished watching Marie Kondo on Netflix too.

School starts again tomorrow for my son. The last half of junior high. My baby will be a high schooler in 8 months!!! I planned my vacation for spring break with my son and planned his 14th birthday. I’m ready for him to start school but not ready to start myself. I have a meeting with my advisor on Tuesday finally too. H is back in Houston too so I will see her when I go to school.

I have to take my son in the morning and work too so I’ll chat with y’all later!

Nothing kind of day

Seriously, I didn’t do much today at all!

I met my friend for lunch at The Toasted Yolk, switched dressers with my son, started Marie’s tidy show on Netflix, and that’s it. My room is not done, this is the in-between stage. I am saving up the money I am not using on cigarettes to get a smaller bed frame and put my bed under my window to have more space in here.

I didn’t smoke all day and was perfectly fine with my vape.

I hope you are having a great weekend!

My Saturday

The only thing I did yesterday was clean and reorganize my bedroom. I’ve been putting it off for months so I really needed to do it and what better time than yesterday?

Can you believe it? I actually took before pictures this time too!!!

It took a while and my bed was completely covered with everything for a a couple of hours but I did it! I went through and found my dads stuff and listened to tapes he made. Most of them were work tapes he made but is not on but one had him singing on it. I wish I knew when he made it. I cried. I made a box of his stuff and put it away.

I went through and got rid of a lot of jewelry that I never wear and put the rest into a real jewelry box instead of this bag.

As you may have seen above, my movies and music was all messed up in the box because my son and his friends took the box and don’t seem to know how to put them back. I even numbered them to make it easy and the music is alphabetical so why is it so hard to put back??? That took me 45 minutes to fix.

Here’s the after photos. I feel good today.

This morning I went to the grocery store and got drinks but not much food. We were out of eggs and cheese so that’s all the food I got. I had to get my mother her Dr. Pepper, my son his chocolate milk and water, and me enough Bang to get me through next week.

I then went to my friends house at my old condo neighborhood and we exchanged presents. She gave me a new lip color and a homemade ornament. I have her the American Horror Story key chain and that little creepy girl. The lip color actually looks nice!

So now I am back home and I am chatting with BFF before I decide to cook something (not sure what I’m making yet though). Y’all have a great day and chat later!

Finally half a lazy day!

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!
