So I keep going in circles about the condo in different posts so I want to be clear. Honestly, I am going to just give my cousin half because I really hate to argue, especially over money. Yes, I probably should get more but whatever. Seriously, it’s just money. It won’t make them happier and I’m saving my part for my son to go to college so who really cares? And it’s not that much anyway! Okay, if I was giving up half a million dollars, I may be having a fit. True. But seriously, he’s freaking out over an extra $5,000 when he’s a professor (and has a wonderful degree that he could go back to), has a home, his wife works, his son got a partial scholarship and lives at home to go to school. I have been struggling these past 15 years trying to make ends meet, raising a kid by myself, no child support, paying daycare so I could work and then end up not making much because I had to pay daycare (one of the most horrible things about being a single parent), and also being too proud to ask for help from my parents. They couldn’t have helped anyway, now I know that but didn’t know it then.
Anyway, I digress. That’s just really frustrating me. So in order to save my relationship with my cousin who has always been more like a brother to me, I’m just giving in.
Yesterday I was supposed to only have the one job of seeing Forgetful. Yeah, that’s not how it went.
9:30am – drop papers off at title company
10am – drop papers off at school to update address
10:15am – since I was across the street at my sons school, I went to see Cranky. She said she was sick last week too (she wasn’t) and she’s glad to see me. Aww, so sweet sometimes! I was happy to go by too. Her cat smelled me and then tried to chomp on my hand but missed, then he ran away. I stayed about an hour.
11:30 – stopped by KFC for crispy fried chicken for lunch (I know, I know, not very healthy).
12pm – stopped by to see Mr. 95 year old. He’s still recovering from pneumonia. His son was in town from Denver and was there. I talked and laughed with Mr. 95 year old for about 10 minutes while I ate lunch and looked at his handsome (married though) son. The son said he had been about to call Uber when I walked in for a ride to the airport but since I was there, could I take him? I wish I could have spent more time with him but I felt like I was being rushed. I will have to go back by so I can actually sit and chat longer.
12:30pm – took his son to the airport with a stop at Chick-fil-A for his lunch. He ate in my car on the way there. He wanted to know all about my business and how much I charge, etc. He talked about his Denver Broncos buddy that he’s partners with in Denver. I told him how much I wish I could move back there and he told me I should.
1:30pm – just dropped his son off and got a call from Forgetful’s step daughter in law saying Forgetful never came back to the assisted living facility from her friend picking her up at 8:30am. So I told her I would drive by her house in case the friend had taken her by there and was unable to get Forgetful to leave again. By the time I drove back to Houston (the airport is about 45 minutes from where I live so it’s like I drove out of the city although I really didn’t) and got to her house, she had finally arrived back at the “home”.
2:30pm – drove from Forgetful’s house to go see her and ask about her adventures and she said we just went to the doctor and then to lunch. That took 6 hours??? Wow. Then her occupational therapist walked in and the cleaning lady was there so I stayed about 30 minutes and then told her I would see her tomorrow (now today).
3:30pm – got my haircut as you probably saw yesterday.
4:45pm – stopped by Beck’s Prime to get dinner. Oh I know I ate out all day, and that’s all I ate today so don’t be too hard on me! My son wanted a grilled cheese and I wanted a kids burger. Still cost me over $12 just for that but their food is awesome!
5pm – home! Yay! Ate. Picked up doggy and took her to the dog food store (Natural Paws – they are great). Then back home. Talked to my mother and got a call from one of my old neighbors. He had asked if he could use my parking spot until the place sold so of course I let him, we don’t close until Monday. He also wants me to stop by the next time I come by. I told him I will come check my mail for the last time on Sunday and I will say hello and have a beer with him. He’s really nice and his wife is leaving town this weekend so he’s probably a bit lonely and wants to hear about my new living arrangements. He’s a 20 something guy but very nice and his wife is very sweet. I just hope I don’t see anyone else while I’m there!
10pm – went to bed
Today I have to take the couple to the doctor and going by to see Forgetful. Let’s see if I can do a day correctly! This isn’t the busiest of days. Saturday will be awful but I don’t want to think about it until it’s time.
Have a good Thursday!
