Lucky is 2!

I totally forgot to share Lucky’s birthday party with y’all!

I made doggie treats and bought human cookies. It was in our park and we had a good turnout!

Those last few photos are both dogs playing with the new toys and lucky eating one of the bones he got as a gift. I still can’t believe people gave him presents!!!

Okay, I’m off to bed. Have a great Sunday!

Another busy day

I think after being so productive all week, I need another vacation day!

This morning I started off by going to the post office to mail the bread I baked and a card to my friend over at hunidasblog.

I stopped at the grocery store on my way back and got spaghetti sauce and waffle mix as well as trash bags and batteries (my son is having friends over this weekend so I want to have good food for them to eat). I came home, put the batteries in my sons clock and made his favorite mac and cheese lasagna. When that was completed, I took off to buy Cranky lunch. I got to speak to my friend Authoress51 while I waited and then went to see Cranky. I also took this plant that my mom had gotten her too. Cranky is not doing well. She ate a 1/4 of her burger, said she was not hungry but her caregiver said she is barely eating and she barely spoke. She said the plant will be great and she said she is glad I am returning the bedrails because she doesn’t want them. I took the bedrails back to Walgreens and got her a refund and then her caregiver text me to get her some soup so I stopped there on my way back. She already got new bedrails, we aren’t going to have her get out of bed by herself in the middle of the night!

After getting a bit sad because of how Cranky is doing, I went home and did my arm exercises for 30 minutes before going to pick my son and his friends up at school. Tomorrow is their last day this year, I think they are excited.

Once we got home from school, I started baking cookies. I made peanut butter, chocolate chip, double chocolate chunk, and sugar cookies with sprinkles. I grabbed a dozen of each (I made 3 dozen peanut butter, 2 dozen chocolate chip, 2 dozen sugar, and only one dozen of the double chocolate chunk) and walked to the gym where my son got the next belt up in karate. He was white belt, now he is white with yellow stripe. I am really excited because his Sensai wants him to start coming next year with the older people because he wants to work more closely with him. Wow! How cool is that?

We just got home (it’s 7:20pm) and I am about to go finish the cookies to give to friends for Christmas (it’s what I like doing each year). Y’all have a great night!

So tired yet again

It has been a crazy couple of days!

Monday – 4 hours of errands with Miss Priss. I came home, got out the Christmas tree (the cats seem to love the bag we keep it in) and met with my moms friend to put the lights on our Christmas tree.

Picked up my son and his friend at school and then home to just talk to Cranky’s son and bake gingerbread men cookies. Recipe is from AllRecipes and it turned out great! So great that when I had a couple of broken men, I had to eat them to put them out of their misery. I ate 3 of them. πŸ˜‚

Today – oh man what a day! I left the house at 8am to go to the hospital. I sat in traffic and finally got to the medical center at 9, drove around the garage for 15 minutes looking for parking, then had to go find Cranky’s room. I stayed there and got to speak to the doctor. She has bacterial pneumonia.

Her son flew down to check on her so when he arrived at the hospital, I took his caregiver to go get her car from her dealership where she was having it fixed. I got home at 2pm and left soon after to pick my son up at school. Then Cranky’s son called to ask me to pick up her prescriptions from the hospital because they were sending her home. So I left again as soon as I dropped off my child, took care of that, and came back home at 5pm.

The caregiver called and said that Cranky is bringing home oxygen and would I meet her there to help her get everything upstairs. So I went back to Cranky’s, got her wheelchair, and went down to wait on them. One of Cranky’s church friends showed up while I was waiting. I didn’t know somebody else was coming! When the caregiver got there, we unpacked everything and went upstairs to her place. The valet guys helped immensely too! I didn’t realize how much they sent her home with. So much stuff.

Cranky’s church friend then went and got us all dinner from Luby’s cafeteria. Cranky got chicken, the caregiver got liver and onions, and I got my favorite fried fish. While we were waiting for her to come back, a guy showed up to deliver an oxygen machine. He got her all set up, I signed my life away for it (sarcasm is awesome), and Cranky’s son and I text back and forth about a hospital bed rental. I will call around in the morning and see if I can get one delivered there tomorrow. We are afraid she will try to get up in the middle of the night and fall so this will help. Her legs are very weak and she can’t stand for long. She is going to complain like crazy if we take her bed away from her. I am not looking forward to this!

I honestly hope all of this equipment is not permanent. I really do love Cranky like a second mother (helps that I’ve known her over 30 years). I hate that she needs all this and is so confused. She said she is going to kill her son for moving her stuff again (she moved into her apartment a year and a half ago though). She wouldn’t listen to me about that. She said she carpooled me to school which is how she knows me. She usually calls me her neighbor. Her son said to just say she’s my aunt. He’s probably right, that’s easier. Maybe she can remember that too.

I am finally home at 9pm and tired!!! I’m about to go to bed. I’m sure I will need to go back over there tomorrow and give her caregiver a break after spending 2 full days with Cranky being sick and having to sleep in the hospital. I haven’t even started studying for my math final yet and it’s in 5 days!!! Eek!!!

Have a good night. I’m going to go catch some πŸ’€ ‘s.

So tired

It’s only 9pm but I am ready for bed.

My son and I picked up H at 8:15 and went off to my sons dentist. The dentist said he is healing but needs to brush and floss better. He also has to use this MI Paste for the entire time he wears braces. Poor kid.

We then went to the Mexican Bakery. So good! They had emoji cookies so my son got a lot of them. They are usually out so he was a bit overexcited.

We took H back to her dorm and headed home. My moms maid/my friend was here cleaning. I gave her her baby gift (she’s due in February). She loved the UH bib and baby shirt.

She also had her daughter with her because they were going to the doctor when they left my house so I gave her daughter a hello kitty emoji cookie. A couple hours later, my son and I took off to check out Bellaire High School.

I would love to say I took this but it was raining and yucky here so I got a stock photo off google. I was NOT impressed with the school. I had a lot of friends that went to this high school and thought it would be great. I was wrong. They are building a new school next to the original one and are staying there in the old building while it’s being built. If my son went there, he would have to be there through all the construction for the next 2 years. No thanks! My son is asthmatic and does not need to be around construction. There were also kids sitting outside school that did not look like the best kids. So yeah, I wasn’t happy.

We came back home and I changed the schools he is applying to. So we didn’t have to go take the language aptitude test which I also found out is not any particular language, it’s just a test to see if he can tell languages so I thought that was weird. I asked how they were preventing another flooding like they had with Harvey and the lady just said they had to. Is that actually an answer? I watched a bit of Netflix and am now going to bed. Have a wonderful night or morning.

Chat later!

Friday fun day!!!

Yes, I took Styled this morning to get her hair and nails done. While she got hers done, I decided to paint mine to match my costume.

I then went to the grocery and got some Halloween cookies for anybody that comes over in the next week.

Then I started to dye my hair. I want my blonde again so here we go! I’m in the middle of the last picture. Y’all have to wait to get the final product. πŸ˜‚

H is coming over to do my makeup and help me get dressed in my costume that my friend S altered for me. I went to Kohl’s and bought a clear strapped bra so it will look good too (no bra strap showing, yay!).

Then we are going to pick up my son at school and his friend and go to the elementary school carnival. He actually asked if he could go so of course I said yes. I think it will be fun, and being dressed up will be a blast too!

I’ll write later and update with lots of photos. Have a great Friday!

The Fat Snax company

The owner Jeff and his next in line, Brian, are totally awesome. I love these cookies. They are great on my keto plan and are very tasty and so soft!

About a month ago, I ordered a variety pack from them. I received them and they were all great other than one package that got moldy.

I emailed them and Brian emailed me back that they were sending a replacement variety pack of cookies because they were not going to sell the ginger cookies anymore due to people not wanting them and the issue I had, quite a few others had the same problem.

Well, today, I got my new pack of cookies. 1. There were 4 peanut butter ones and 4 ginger turmeric ones. Huh??? Check out the box as the USPS guy shoved it into a tiny mailbox instead of taking the time to put it at my door.

So I opened the box and saw what they had sent and the condition they were in.

I was really pissed off! I emailed Brian back and I am sharing my email and his reply.

My email:

His reply:

Now tell me. Is this company AWESOME or what? It may take another 2 weeks to get the new box but it’s free and hopefully this one will actually be a variety pack of chocolate chip, peanut butter, and lemon cookies, 24 in all. I’m sure it will since he is doing this again!

I can NOT say they will get here well since USPS seems to not give a crap about how they deliver things. I got the notification that it had been delivered and it wasn’t in my box. I actually had to stop the mail guy and he had put them into someone else’s mailbox! So he pulled them out and hands the messed up package to me. Geez!

I just wanted to tell you guys that if you are looking for a company that stands behind their products, this one definitely fits. Plus the cookies are keto friendly!!!

So glad it’s the weekend!

So guys, I have to tell you a secret. I started a 2nd job. I am driving for an internet based company like Uber (but NOT Uber). After taking Styled yesterday morning, I came home, walked Amber, ate, and started my new job. I ended up working for 4 hours, had NO clue where I was for 3 jobs so thank GOD for GPS, and kept taking jobs until I was somewhere I knew. The sad part was I didn’t even make $10 per hour. I know, it’s more than minimum wage, but if you look at what it puts my car through, I still have to see if this is worth it. So I worked 7 total hours today. I did 7 runs with the driving company in 4 hours. This company is not too busy and that’s actually good for me. They have a bonus program right now that if you do 150 jobs in 45 days through them, you will get a $500 bonus. Message me if you want a link! I hope it’s possible.

I came home and got in bed but only for about 30 minutes. Then I got up to go walk (gotta get my exercise in – especially after sitting in my car most of the day!). I ended up doing 45 minutes on the treadmill and felt MUCH better when I was done.

I went out last night and got wings from WingStop and boy were they good! So good I forgot to take a picture! The thing I am happy about is that all 3 generations of people in this house sat down and ate in the same area. My mom and I split the wings while my son had French fries (he refused the wings). I’m not a big sauce person so I let my mom eat the bleu cheese dressing with the wings. I was happy with mine just like they were.

Today is weigh day!!! You are SO not going to believe this. I don’t! I had to move and re-step on the scale a few times to make sure it was actually real! This keto lifestyle is definitely doing the trick. I had a compliment from one of the neighbors. He told me that he can see I’ve lost “quite a bit” and I’ll soon be as thin as he is. He’s this tall, thin, handsome Frenchman that moves to the states about 4 years ago and lived in California until last year when he came here. He has a chiweenie like I do so he and I chat at least once a week while our girls run around and play together.

Yes, I know, I got off track! You want to know the weight, right? Well… 195.2! That is a LOSS of 4.8 pounds! Woot woot!

Today is psychologist day, gym weights day, and cooking day. I’m making fajitas (beef and chicken) as well as baked chicken and Italian sausages. I need more choices! I am okay about not having too many sweet things (if I get desperate, I found a keto peanut butter cookie to make or just fat bombs).

Anyway, y’all have a great day!
