Today was another full day. Hopefully I’ll write this without falling asleep again! I just hate when I do that. I always end up accidentally backspacing and losing some, if not all, of what I’ve written. I just hate when I do that!!
I had to wake up early to drive my daughter to school – her last day of the two week phys-ed class already! Does Time ever fly! When I got home I was still tired, so I decided to climb back into bed and have a nap before starting my day. Once I woke up, I had to feed my son quickly and get him ready to go play at a friend from school’s house. Right afterwards I had to run to Sobeys and then to a ladies house to buy a bag for my art supplies. She was selling one and it looked perfect for what I needed. I hope it’s big enough…it looks close. I have to look into whether or not they charge you more for extra bags on the train. If so, my dad had a great idea. He figures, since they go back to their BC house before I’m going, he could just bring the supplies with him and my mom, when they go back to their BC house. Then, a week and a bit later, I’ll take the train there and my art stuff will already be there waiting for me at my mom and dad’s BC house! It’s a great idea. It just requires me to get ready sooner than I would if I were bringing it with me. But I intended to go through my things and look at the supply list to see if I needed to get anything, on top of what I already own. So, I have to get organized and my hubby had to figure out his vs action time. (Some key people quit at his work today, which may affect his ability to even come at all. Let alone just coming with the kids on the Tuesday. That just throws everything off!) If he can’t come, the kids will have to go earlier, with me and I’ll have to drive…I’m really and truly intimidated and scared to do that long drive on my own! My hubby always does the driving and the stretch through Golden just absolutely freaks me out!! I hate it with every fibre of my being!! I try to be certain I’m asleep for that part❗️I’m praying that he can come! It’s only fair. He’s been working his tail off and these new changes will increase his workload even more!!! He needs the break and hasn’t he earned it?? I’d say so! I also now can’t just go ahead and book my train ticket, as we need to know what’s going on with him. This makes planning super difficult ! I think he needs to stand up for himself and point out all that he’s been doing, he desperately needs a break!! I’ll be angry if he doesn’t get his holiday this summer!! Hopefully Garry comes back to temporarily replace the guy who quit and he can give my hubby the holidays!
My daughter got a 96% on her phys-ed final and wanted celebratory Starbucks. So I took her their and got her a frapaccino (I don’t know how to spell that word!!) When I got back home, my hubby and I cleaned our disaster area, otherwise known as a living room. What a cluttered mess man! It was like walking through an obstacle course! Well, it’s nice now. Much much better! Once the living room was cleaned, it was time to get ready to go to my mom and dad’s house for supper. My Uncle Joe, cousin Barbara, her daughter, Angela from California were visiting. The people that they are stating with, Uncle Joe’s wife’s brother and his wife, Shirley were there. Also, from Edmonton, my Uncle Alan and Aunty Shirley were there. My kids felt a little overwhelmed and shy, especially my son, but it was fine and they were all very nice people. We had a nice visit with them, Uncle Joe isn’t doing that well. He has dementia and gets confused very easily, but he was just fine, much better than I had expected. It’s the first time I’ve seen him since my Aunty Janet passed away a few months back.
Once we came home, we looked at some old photos that my mom found from my high school graduation. It’s so long ago! It was crazy how different and young I look, with my whole life ahead of me. Time is a bizarre thing. Then I did a wonderful face mask from Lush. Then I got ready for bed and am sitting here writing right now!!
Look at me! I made it too now without falling asleep at all!! I guess it’s not as late as some nights, it’s only 11:20. However, I feel ready for bed. I can’t sleep too late. That lady is coming in the morning to look at those jackets I am selling and washed for her. Night All! 💤😴
