Long day

This morning was very relaxing. I left at 10:45 and got gas. I picked up Miss Priss and took her to Mr. S funeral. I was at the funeral and was getting texts from Cranky’s caregiver. She has had a cold all week but it got worse. She was taken to urgent care and so after the funeral, I headed over there.

Come to find out, they believe she has pneumonia and have admitted her into the hospital. I stayed to sign the paperwork to get her in a room and then came home around 5pm. its 10pm and she still hasn’t been taken to the actual hospital yet. I cooked chicken and boudain and walked Amber. I then took my final exam for nutrition. I’m confused about that class. It says I failed the class but if you take the scores, I have a 79. So which one is it???

H said a 64 is a D but I may as well failed if that’s my actual score. It’s very frustrating! I can’t wait to find out what I actually made. Too bad I won’t know until around Christmas.

I decided to watch The Great Festive Baking Show because baking relaxes me but I do not feel like actually baking. So Authoress, I’m sorry I haven’t made the bread yet. I will though!

I hope your Saturday was better than mine! I can’t wait to go grocery shopping and bake tomorrow. I want to make gingerbread cookies like I did last year. Everyone that ate them last year loved them. So goodnight and I pray tomorrow is a good day.

Last day for the drawing!

My friend H is coming to video the drawing this week so if you haven’t liked the post, you have until tonight! So far there are 27 likes. Will you be the winner? One note – if you do not live in the states and you win, I cannot send the keto bread. It’s refrigerated and I cannot afford to spend the kind of money it would cost to send something overnight out of the states.

I have lots to tell you guys from yesterday! I was at school at 10am and my ex was on the phone with me my entire drive.

He said that he wants to come see his son but his truck broke down so he can’t. I told him that the psychologist suggested to meet somewhere other than the house. He goes off saying how this therapist is not good, doesn’t know what he’s talking about, and that nobody is going to tell him where he can see his child. Wow, right?

I tell him how our son has some major anger issues. I finally told him about the fight. I told him that our son keeps a knife in his room (I did not mention it’s a pocket knife that he uses to open boxes only). I told him that we started going to therapy because my dad passed away and they were very close but as hormones have hit worse, he seems to be getting more and more angry (usually only when his father is coming over or other normal teenage angst).

SO! His father says, maybe I shouldn’t come over for a while. My reply, “That is your choice. I suggested we meet for lunch or at a park.” He replies, “No, I think it’s best if I just avoid that situation for a while.” OMG YAY! When I finally got him off the phone, I called my son to tell him. He said, ” Thank the Lord!” Think he’s happy? 😂

I went to take my exam after taking the practice quiz online in the library which was actually quiet for once! I made an 80 on the multiple choice questions on the exam. I won’t find out how badly I screwed up the free response written questions for another week. I don’t think I did very well though! All these logarithm questions which I barely started learning Friday night! With my 93 on the practice test I will get an extra 9 points added to my test grade so I will pass. I have a B in the class before the test. Only thing left in math this semester is the final exam, one more homework, and 3 quizzes. Only thing left in nutrition is the final exam too. It’s almost over y’all!!!

H and I went after my exam and drove to Fulshear TX yesterday to have the worlds best barbecue. Being from San Antonio, she had never had it. She loved it!

She is taking the math exam on Monday at 5pm so she is studying today and tomorrow. That’s why we are not doing the drawing until Tuesday but today is the last day to like the post to be in the drawing! Then we drove to the Fry’s near Sugar Land TX because she wants this DVD player you hook up to your computer. They were completely out! And their prices were twice to three times what you would pay at Walmart. Ridiculous. I won’t be going there again. It’s far away and pricey? No thanks Fry’s!

H hasn’t ever had Rice-a-Roni, my burgers, or anything I normally eat. So I am cooking today (meal prep Sunday you know) and I told her after the concert she’s going to tonight, she should come eat dinner. I’ll see if she comes and I will let you know what she thinks!

For Thanksgiving, I do not technically have to cook. We are going to my cousins house for Thanksgiving dinner. My cousin asked my mom to get pecan pies from this fancy barbecue place here. My mother told ME to go get them so I went yesterday before H and I took off out of town. They were $22 a piece! Okay, it’s good pecan pie but almost $3 a person if you cut it in 8 slices??? Crazy!

I am going to make this homemade Macaroni and cheese too. My cousin didn’t ask me to, I have just made it the past 5 Thanksgivings for my little family and I love it! It is very time consuming to make but so worth it. So I am making it. I’m sure it will go over well and who complains about more food at a family holiday meal with 18 people?

I am also going to make cheesy crackers. Rice Krispies and cheese? Yes please!

I’ve got my work cut out for me today! I already got all the trash together and put out for the trash guys tomorrow. I’m sure I will add another bag once I cook.

Y’all have a great Sunday!

Good non-school day

No class today since my professor went out of town. I was glad because they closed my garage parking for a football game too.

This morning was spent running errands for my mom. First issue – I got an email this morning that her 2nd bank account was overdrawn. Considering she doesn’t use that account, I pulled it up to find out that they gave her checks for that account instead of the one she normally uses plus some credit card that she paid off is STILL pulling money out! So I went up to BOA and the nice lady removed the overdraft fee and got her checks for her account at no additional cost. We have to call the credit card company in the morning because my mom did not get home this afternoon until it was too late to call them.

2nd issue was prescriptions. Her doctor sent her pharmacy 3 scripts. She went and picked up 2. She couldn’t understand why the 3rd wasn’t available. Like I had assumed, it had simply not been ready. I was able to pick that up easily.

I decided to go see Cranky since I only had an hour until I needed to pick my son up at school. Her caregiver was doing her hair and asked me to make her a hair appointment so I text her hair person. Got her appointment set for Wednesday for that. She seemed to think her eye doctor appointment tomorrow was too close to Christmas and asked to change it so I said I would.

I took off and picked up my son. We went to a high school for a tour. He liked the school and is not even worried that they have 3 hours of homework every day. We still have 2 schools to check out. Since the tours are only available on Thursdays, I’m just going to have to miss school 2 more times. We have to check out these schools. It’s important to see what he likes and hates. This one was pretty small and only had 400 students per grade. Even my graduating class had over 500 so this is a small school! He’s in the lottery to get in. Praying he makes it! We won’t find out until April of 2019 though.

We came home after and I let Amber out. As we were walking back inside, Eliza got out. She is such an escape artist! It took me about 7 minutes to coax her out of the holly bushes and pick her up to bring her back inside. Crazy cat!

I took the math practice exam again. I need practice! I made a 63 on it. The first time I took it, I got a 56 so I’m doing better. I can still take it 18 more times before the exam on Saturday.

Tomorrow I will take Styled to get her hair dyed and study at the hairdressers house. Then when I get home I will try it again. Let’s see what happens!

Bombed

Once again, I completely failed the anatomy exam. I guess it’s easy the professor asks questions like “what is the best answer” and “which one doesn’t fit”. I’m not the only one. Another girl in my class took it with me and did as bad as I did!

So upset that I went and bought cupcakes. I only ate one and it was 200 calories although it probably had enough sugar to put me in hyperdrive the rest of the day! Maybe I’ll even feel up to going to the gym. I haven’t in a few days. So frustrated with everything at school makes me want to curl up at home. I am curling up but I’m studying while I do it. Maybe if I make my life ALL about school, I can pass these classes!

Anyway, I took a video of Oliver playing fetch yesterday while I waited for my printer to print.

I bet you thought it would be the dog! Lol

Saturday was WAY too long! We were at the karate tournament from 9:30-6pm. My son lost but that’s okay. It was his first tournament.

My moms gift just got here today. I hope she likes it!

I’m sitting in the carpool lane at the school and have almost 30 minutes to just sit here. I had my chocolate milk and the cupcake and now typing.

The rest of the cupcakes will go to the boys that I take home. I am limiting myself to the one. I don’t want to gain!

Y’all have a good day. When I get back home, I have nutrition to study.

I need luck here!

I am about to go take my math exam. I’m done studying. I took the practice test this morning again and got a 76. So maybe I am studying too much. I am sitting in my car eating breakfast and relaxing before I go take it.

Yesterday I decided that I needed to exercise to relieve stress. I went in the morning for the cardio class filled with elderly people and left to go do the elliptical. Last night when my son went to karate, I decided to go to Bodyjam. I had a lot of fun and burned more calories.

So this morning is all about rest and relaxation. I went to anatomy class but am not going to do that homework until after my exam. I just don’t want to do anything for a bit!

I’ll write later and let y’all know if I think I did okay!
