Sad News Today

Today I slept in again. I woke up in the night with a sore throat. Then when I got up I felt even worse! Yep! Definitely getting sick! Not too surprising, after the first week back to school, both of my school aged kids have coughs and runny noses, etc. So, they probably picked something up from their schools and I got it from them! Lucky us… When I got up I had some tea and something to eat. Then I made a Costco grocery list. My hubby and I went to the new Costco in Nisku.

On our way there, my mom called me. She had some very sad news. My Godfather, one of my dad’s oldest friends, passed away today. Earlier this week he had a sudden stroke. It was very bad and they couldn’t really help him. He was completely unresponsive for the past few days and the dr’s told his wife that they didn’t think he had very long. My parents are, understandably, quite sad by this sudden loss and my heart and prayers go out to his wife, family and close friends like my mom and dad. He was always so full of life and spunk and he was definitely one of my most favourite adults when I was little. He will be missed.

When we got to Costco we had to renew our membership today, because it expired. However, we had about an $85 credit, so the membership was under $40. They also took new photos and gave us new cards, which they don’t usually do. We did our shopping, we have certain things that we always buy at Costco, because they’re just cheaper there. You just have to be careful to stick to your list, because it’s so easy to overspend there! We stayed with our list for the most part, because we just don’t have the money to overspend. When we got home, we all put everything away. Then, while my hubby and oldest daughter did the potatoes (to go with the chicken we bought), I quickly went to Sobeys to get just a couple things. Then, when I got home, I cooked some frozen veggies and made some gravy and then we ate supper. After supper I wrote down my daughter’s dance schedule, since dance begins tomorrow. I always write it out and have it up on the fridge. We still are trying to figure out money, but September is paid for, so she starts tomorrow. My son was going through some of the clothes that my friend brought over the other day. We picked out some pjs and clothes for school tomorrow, then I gave him a bath. Afterwards, he got ready for bed, I read and sang and then he went to sleep. Once he was asleep, I helped my younger daughter clean up her dance bag for tomorrow. She dances right after school, so she was trying to make sure everything was ready tonight! She meant to do it earlier, but forgot, so she ended up staying up later than she wanted to. Now I’m going to get myself ready for bed, I’m feeling all stuffed up and both my sinuses and throat hurt.

Night All! 💤😴
