This morning after I dropped off my son at school, my daughter texted me from her room and asked me to fill up her water bottle for her. So I did that for her. She went back to sleep. She seemed to be doing well at that point. I had some oatmeal. I was feeling pretty tired myself, so I did a bit of laundry. Then I went upstairs and had a sleep. I woke up for a while. I looked over the competition times for tomorrow. The competition that my daughter is in actually begins today, but she doesn’t have any dances until tomorrow. Then she has her solo and Oh The Terrors, which is their production, although I don’t think that they call it production this year, I believe that they are calling it musical theatre line or something along those lines. I can check in the book tomorrow. We plan on leaving pretty early in morning. She doesn’t dance that early, but we are at a theatre that we aren’t used to with a reputation for having horrible parking (and I remember that it did have crappy parking from a couple of years ago!!) So, we definitely want to give ourselves time. Also, Amanda warmed everyone that this competition often runs early and if you’re not there it doesn’t matter, the competition continues on without you!! I wrote all of her times down, so that when I get the book it will be easy to go through and highlight her spots tomorrow. Then I had something small to eat. I really wasn’t feeling well. So I checked my laundry and my daughter was still resting and doing fine, so I went back to bed for an hour or so. Then my mom called. I talked with her briefly. Then I texted her my daughter’s competition times, since she will be coming to some of her dances. I got up and got dressed and went to my daughter’s school and picked her. My hubby picked up my son from school. My daughter and I drove from her school to my mom and dad’s house. She tried on her costumes to see if what my mom did had helped. My mom also pinned something on the solo costume and then sewed it by hand while we waited. It looks much better! I know my son is happy and feels more comfortable in it. The one costume was too difficult to fix one part, but my mom did shorten it and steam it, which helped it hang nicer. It looks good! Her solo costume fits a lot better as well. So yay! Thanks Momma!! When she was finished we drove home. When we got home as soon as we walked in my son informed us that we were all playing Monopoly Cheaters Edition. However, before we did that, my younger daughter had to fill out her registration forms for grade 12!! Her very last school registration forms ever!! Wow!! So crazy!! How does that even happen?! So I helped her with that, although she pretty much knew what she wanted/needed to take next year. I had to sign it when she was finished!! Here she is:
So grown up!! It seems to happen overnight!! No more high school registration for her after this!! When we finished them and had both signed them, we all sat down together in the kitchen and played the game. I’m surprised that my oldest was up for it, although Monopoly is her most favourite game in the whole world!! So perhaps that’s what convinced her?! I’m not sure?! It was close to 6:00 when we started, so I also made supper at the same time, I was kind of up and down a lot during the beginning of the game. However, it was kind of nice to have everyone played together for once!! We played until about 8:00. That was our agreed upon time to stop, regardless of if we were actually finished or not. I actually won!! Which, believe me, never happens! If Monopoly is my oldest daughter’s favourite, well it’s probably my least favourite…however, I the entire family wanted to play who was I to say no right?! So, needless to say, I’m not the best at it and I’m also not the best at cheating, for two reasons, I’m too honest and I’m too nice…which really don’t help you much in Cheaters Edition!! I apologize when I end up with someone else’s property, because I feel guilty. They’re all like, “Mom! You’re supposed to do that!!” I just feel bad taking it from someone… I think that the main reason that I won is the reason why people always win Monopoly, I owned both Park Place and Boardwalk!! And, everyone knows, if you own both of those you can do fairly well…just cashing them in at the end is what put me over the top, my son was a very close second though!! I was just surprised though – I don’t think that I’ve ever won Monopoly!! When we finished, I talked to my son’s friends mom, because my son invited him over on Saturday when he is already going to a birthday party that day!! So we had to change the day to Sunday. My hubby went to bed. My daughter felt crappy and the inside of her mouth is swelling so bad that she is having a difficult time not biting the inside of her cheek because it’s swelling in between them. She’s also pretty sore, but that’s to be expected. They called her today to see how she’s doing, which I thought was really kind. Probably routine, but a nice routine to have! At about 9:00 I let the dogs out and in and filled up water bottles. Then I took my son upstairs and got him ready for bed. Then I went on my phone for a while. Now I’m going to get ready for bed. I might have a shower, so that I’m rushing a lot less in the morning.
Night All! 💤😴
