Yesterday, she turned 14. It’s not a big exciting birthday like 13 or 16, but here in Kansas, it is a little more exciting than most. Now she can get her permit and she’ll be allowed to drive to work and school :O CRAZY right?
Josh and I are both on vacation. It was nice until today. We won’t discuss today. Let’s just say that stress and us means it gets loud in this apartment. Five minutes later, it’s full of laughter. Maybe we’re all a little bipolar (I say that as a bipolar person). Continue reading →
No one else takes a selfie while at the dentist? Both times I took them, I got “caught” and they thought it was funny, but not unexpected. 😀
I had to get two cavities filled. The original plan was a single one, with maybe the one in the front (I had a filling fall out), but nope. That back one needed a root canal. Because of the constant pain, I got moved in as an emergency patient.
I found an easy way to make my kids happy: I bought them happy meals this afternoon for lunch. I had to get gas in the truck. I haven’t gotten it since June 10, so I’m not going to even consider complaining that I spent less than $40 in gas on an 01 Trailblazer, which is an SUV. Nope, that’s not bad at all. I’m only getting about 16mpg, but I’m doing mostly city driving now. The car is our “long haul” trip vehicle, unless we have to TAKE something, and then it’s the Trailblazer.
So, going to McDonald’s, I saved us some money. If I had gone to Walmart, I wouldn’t have just gotten lunch. No I would have ended up with a bunch of other junk, crap that we don’t need. So, for less than $15, we all three got a lunch that made us full.
And I got to make my children smile with a minimum of fuss. So, priceless!
Okay, I’m not going to go to sleep. Will get that second wind soon.
I think my biggest problem is that today, I’ve actually eaten lunch. I don’t eat much at all, or well, when I do. So, when I eat, my body goes into hibernation mode, and I just want to sleep the day away. It’s also humid as heck, inside the apartment, and that’s another energy zapper.
I know it’s not going to help the can’t sleep issue much, but I think I am gonna work on getting Josh to pick up some McDonald’s tonight. The kids, even though they don’t want to stay quiet at times, have done really well. They’re great kids, and they deserve a treat. That, and Josh deserves a break today.
Yeah, I think it’ll work just fine! But I doubt that he’ll go for it. He’s notorious for going “nah, I’ll just pick up a pizza”. I don’t WANT the stove turned on. I just cleaned that mofo this morning! I’d go get the food, but yeah, I have to be here to post.
