Did This Day Really Happen?

Did it? I mean it seems a bit surreal now. I mean it started normal enough my soon to be ex went back to his old job without any trouble. I put the kiddo on the school bus, he came home I went to work. I did laundry etc. Well we tried to go to therapy and the bottom fell out. They called to say we didn’t have to go but we were already on our way so I said we’d be there. We should have been in about ten more minutes, wrong. The bottom fell out, I couldn’t see a foot in front of me, water was standing in the road and everyone was speeding up. These people ain’t that bright. Anyway I called them to tell them I was wrong and we were going home.

This is where it gets cuter. We turn around during a break in the rain and after I turn down a side street to get off the four lane, it stops completely. Lovely. I gave up and we came home. I had a confused child on my hands since we came back to where we had started at. Well, my soon to be ex went to work and stopped to pick up some stuff that I had loaned out for me since I couldn’t afford to go and it was right by where he works. All is sort of normal now. 

Later this evening he got a call from the job that let him work one day and let him go because of something from twenty years ago. They had realized that it was twenty years ago and they wanted him to go back to work first thing in the morning and to call to get a schedule. At first he said yes then we talked and decided that no matter how badly we might need the money right now he was not going to leave his current job again after the man gave it back to him. 

Oh well, It’s been a long day and I have to get back to life so I’ll be going now.

A day of Rest!!!!!!!

Well, mostly it was restful. This afternoon Theresa had a therapy appointment that I got her daddy to take her to. I also got him to stop at the store on their way home. That gave me extra time. I spent my morning trying to fix display issues with Firefox and Internet Explorer so I could use one of them b/c buttons and tool bars that I need are not available for Google Chrome. It was a lot cause so I use one of them for the buttons and Chrome for everything else.

I watched Mr. Mom. I even got to watch it from the bathtub. I took advantage of having the house to myself to take a nice long soak in the tub. At the moment I’m watching the weather and it’s supposed to get cold tonight. Something about snow in the weather forecast, I do hope that they’re wrong. I don’t like snow and I really don’t want to have to keep the house that warm this weekend.

Did I mention I need new duct work? One of my cats has discovered that he can let himself in through the vents when he gets too cold. I do wish I had a room built onto the side to let them in and be warm that way they wouldn’t destroy the house. I’ve got to make sure I have cat litter just in case it gets too cold out for them this weekend. I can’t have them freezing. It’s 44 degrees right now at almost 6:30 with a freeze expected in the morning. Looks like it’s gonna be cold for Christmas.

Christmas day a 60% chance of rain that cold turn to snow. 30% late Saturday and Sunday morning? I don’t want snow it defeats the whole purpose of living down here. OK so I’m being whinny.

My tax refund if there is one next year is already spent on repairs to make living easier. I don’t like that thought but it’s my reality this year. Oh well, I’ll be fine. I’m watching “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and it makes me feel a bit guilty seeing all those people that lost everything during the hurricane and I’m complaining that it might snow.

OK now I’ve completely lost track of what I was saying so I’m gonna be going now.

Sick Baby

Theresa is sick today. Poor thing must have been exhausted too because she’s actually asleep right now. There wasn’t any arguing about napping either. She was supposed to go to the National Peanut Festival for the first time ever tomorrow. It’s special citizens day and with Autism she qualifies.

The weather forecast calls for a chance of rain. That means that if it’s raining when it’s time to go in the morning she doesn’t get to. She’s been sick today but she’s sleeping good now. Maybe it’s from being so tired. I’m sick but I think exhaustion caused it.

OK I don’t feel so good so I’m going to see if I can get a little bit of work done. Only thirty more minutes before I can take a nap.
