Going home today

Yep. Gotta go home. Hotels have early check outs here! We have to check out by 11am. I guess we will go find a place to eat or something.

Yesterday we drove to LA. What a gorgeous drive!!!

I have now finally seen a Del Taco and In N Out burger place too. πŸ˜‚

We parked on Hollywood Blvd and walked about a mile looking at stars. Here are my favorites.

Here is Hollywood and Vine intersection too! Sorry it’s a bit far away but it’s not like I could get both standing up close.

Then we drove up to see the Hollywood sign. When I was 14, my mom and I made this drive on Mulhulland Dr and we were on the side of a cliff on a dirt road. It was scary back then. So much has changed (it HAS been 30 years)!!! The drive is all paved, there’s a concrete wall and fence above it where we used to be on the edge of the cliff, and of course all the homes that are up there now. It was crazy!!!

Please let me remind people of one thing. When you are parking your vehicle on a steep road and you are going downhill, turn your wheels towards the curb when you park. If something happened and your car started to move, it would not go down the road or into traffic if you do that. There was only ONE other car up there that did that! I just kept thinking that there could be so many problems!!!

After about 3 hours spent in LA, we drive back to Vegas so I could go meet with Authoress51. The drive back was still gorgeous!!! I love mountains (especially with snow on topπŸ” )!

She gave me the book she wrote and I was so excited! It’s a cute book. Y’all should look it up and get it!

I got an interview at the gym!!! They set it up for next Tuesday morning. I am so excited!!! The good thing is that they all know me so they know how hard I worked to get where I am and how often I am there anyway between my exercise and my sons karate class.

I haven’t really gotten formal exercise while I’ve been here although I have been walking around. I have been eating pretty much nothing but crap too. I will be back on track tomorrow morning. I am thinking I may go to the gym and go running to help get some of these toxins out of my system!

I hope y’all had a good day! I will let you know about TSA tomorrow.

Just sharing stats for last week πŸ˜€

I logged into my weights app and it gave me my past week and then I logged into my calorie counter and it gave me my past weeks stats so I wanted to share. I’m pretty happy!

Everything here is starting to close down for the next day or 2 because it MIGHT snow and ice. Wow. Okay, so it’s may get down into the teens for weather and it may snow ❄️. I think that’s great, then again, I have lived in Colorado and know how to drive in it. Most Houstonians don’t!

No school, my moms job closed, I am going to see Forgetful in the morning but then I’m coming home. No going out in all this for me! I’ll stay at home and suffer inside instead of being a statistic of accidents because someone decided to go out that doesn’t know how to drive in it.

Y’all stay warm and safe!

Not good yesterday πŸ˜

I ate too much and didn’t get any exercise at all! I meant to. It was really cold and wet though and I couldn’t go out to walk. The news said we had a possibility of snow overnight. Yeah right. 1. It’s not even close to 32 degrees. 2. Houston? Snow? πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Yeah right! 3. I was WRONG!!!! It snowed! I actually went out in it to take a picture and video to prove it actually was snowing in Houston!!!

On the plus side, I did make 200 posts already! Woo hoo! Over 300 follows and 200 posts? Wow. Seriously guys, I never thought I would keep up with a blog and really never thought anyone would want to read it! Thank you so much! I love your thoughts and the likes. You guys are awesome!

So I took my son in to the dentist. He had 1 cavity. The dentist pulled his remaining 4 baby teeth too using laughing gas. He didn’t like the numbing shot but didn’t complain much at all until the orthodontist took forever to get in to us. So come to find out, his jaw is too small and they have to expand it before they can put braces on him. They took an impression of his top teeth and we have to go back next month to have the expander thing put in his mouth. I will have to turn it daily for 2 weeks and then we go in and get his braces on. This does not sound like fun! Plus not only does he have an overbite, his bite is sideways. They are going to have to fix all of that! In order to write it all off on my taxes, I paid for it so I don’t have to deal with that anymore. All we have to do now is go in and get it all done. So I’m WAY broke now but as long as he takes care of his teeth, he will have great teeth as he gets older which is good.

I tell my mom all this last night and she tells me about her family and how they all had small jaws and it made me laugh since I’M ADOPTED and her family has nothing to do with my kids mouth! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I swear I will be back on track today. I have to. If it’s still cold and wet, I will have to go to the gym. Yuck but if I have to, I have to. I kind of missed my walk last night.

I have my breast ultrasound at 8:45 this morning, then 2 jobs if the roads are safe. The snow wasn’t sticking to the ground when I went out but that doesn’t mean it won’t be like that this morning. Sleepy’s son text me tonight asking if I was available tomorrow for a final Friday. Really??? I told you last Friday that I had to give you notice and you never answered me! So I booked other clients. So I actually told him that “since I never heard back from you, I booked other people”. He never answered. What a dumb ass. I’m glad to be done with him. I like her though! It’s not her fault he can’t do anything right! If you don’t communicate, I can’t help you though.

I watched Tropic Thunder last night too as well as Sing and Mauna. I still love kids movies even though my son doesn’t. Tropic Thunder was a bit stupid. That didn’t surprise me though. That’s why I never saw it before.

Y’all have a good day!

Wow. Thanks guys!

I am not associated with these blog sites that gets you tons of followers, yet in 2 months of starting my blog, I have 51! I really appreciate everyone that follows me and hope that my life is interesting enough to keep all of you plus more some day!

NOW…

Yesterday update: I did clean off my bed of all the files. Mostly by throwing away stuff I don’t need and then stuffing all that was left over into the one box. It all fits in one though! I can organize it any time. I ran out of time before I could get to do more at my Mom’s so when I say stuffed, I literally pushed it all down into the box well enough for me to close the lid and put it away. βœ…

I had to drive yesterday evening for my normal Wednesday job. I was not able to get laundry done (which is not good). My son is complaining like crazy this morning because I didn’t do it. I just told him, you could have done it too. I mean, come on, he’s 12! He can do his own laundry! I’ve showed him how many times. These days, it’s pretty easy too! He had nothing to say after that. HA!

Today I am not sure how this is going to go. I have to take this woman to get her license renewed at 9. Then, I have to go by this other woman’s place to check on her and see pictures from Africa that her caregiver said she would bring. By 1, I have to pick up this couple and take them for groceries. I also have to pick up my son and his friend at 3:15 after school, take his friend home (I told her Mom I would), and get my little guy home. I also have a job this evening taking this man to pick up his girlfriend at the airport but that’s not until later so I’ll have some free time in between.

So, my issue is this. How can I get back from the DPS, see a lady, take a couple to the grocery, and pick up my kid within 2 1/2 hours (that is guesstimating that the DPS will take a couple hours at the very least)??? When I get home from taking him to school this morning, I’ll just pay the lovely condo laundry room rates and get laundry done. I don’t have the 2 hours it takes to do it at my moms. Here: Wash – 30 minutes, dry – 45 minutes so that leaves me plenty of time to get to my first job at 9. After that, my day may be a problem! What I HOPE happens is that this woman is correct and she won’t have to wait and I’ll have her home by 11. Then I can take the couple grocery shopping at 11:30, go by and see the pictures around 2, then pick up the kids at 3:15. Please note this is best case scenario. Reason 1 is because the DPS office she wants to go to is WAY far out (well, Julie, they don’t make seniors wait so I want to go to that one)! Reason 2 is that she may decide she needs something else after getting it renewed which of course will mess up my entire schedule.

You may have noticed that I haven’t talked about my man lately. That would be because he up and left and moved to Arkansas. So there’s nothing really to talk about! He has been talking to me, complaining about some oil change place, how he couldn’t leave Houston when he wanted to, whatever. He’ll be back. I’m not worried. He won’t like it there over the winter. For some reason, he doesn’t think it snows there much. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

So that’s it for the day. It’s time for me to get off my boodie and get ready to take my son to school. Y’all have a great day now!
