Stress And Sickness

I still feel like hell…

Nothing’s changed since yesterday

I don’t feel well!!

I feel nauseous – so sick

I still have a stupid headache too

It needs to change – and quick

I just want to lie down in bed

Again nothing I take works at all

I just need to rest my head

At least my hubby has a job

We thought after today he may not

My sanity they were able to rob

They created a new position for him

He’s not very happy about it

At least he’s still there, chances were slim

It’s a long involved story

It’s been happening for a while

Things were feeling gory

My phone doesn’t like that word

Oh well, I used it anyway

This whole thing seems absurd

It kind of – semi rhymes

Not very well, I’m afraid

I really suck sometimes

All I did was worry

Hoping things would be okay

My hubby was full of fury

I hope works out

What my hubby says about it

Leaves me with some doubt

But there’s nothing he can do

He can’t just go and quit

We rely on all his income too

What a stressful time

It makes it hard to think

Maybe that’s why I can’t rhyme

I’m going to go to bed

I’m ready to do so

To go and rest my head


Night All! 💤😴

Sick And Tired

I felt sick today…all day long! Yuck. Nothing I took, nothing I did made it better. This morning I woke feeling nauseous with a pounding headache. Yuck! That sucks! Not a fun way to wake up feeling. The tummy pills that I have didn’t help me at all. Believe me, I’ve tried taking them all day. It sucks…I think I mentioned that!!

Despite how I was feeling, I got up and had my coffee. I watched a couple shows flopped out on the couch. Then, I forced myself to get up and help my daughter with her bug room. We cleaned almost everything up. We only found about 5 or so of our friendly neighbourhood carpet beetles. Which is really good. We managed to get around the entire room with the bug killer – all of the baseboards around the room. We also set up 4 traps. 1 in her closet and three throughout her room. Hopefully this will eliminate them from her room for the most part. So that she can start to sleep in her room again. She’s missing having her own space. She usually spends hours in her room. Hopefully they’ll be evacuated from there or we’ll get that ones that are still there with the traps. We didn’t find a whole ton of bugs and none on her bed, which was good. We did find a few, shell kind of things it looked like they hatched or something from. They were really gross. I just am praying that we have things under control!! Our cleaning took pretty much the entire day!! We basically cleaned till 4:00pm. Then, we watched another episode of the Bachelorette. They were in Geneva, they got to see the Swiss alps, what neat things she gets to do. I’m pretty jealous-lol

After that I made supper. Following supper I was super lazy, because I didn’t feel well at all. I watched Home Grown, another HGTV Reno type show it’s entertaining. They do make wish we had money to fix our house though…I guess I can dream…cause that’s about all we can afford!??

I’m feeling sick and want sleep. I’m going to take off and get to sleep. Wow do I ever hope that I feel better tomorrow. This sucks. Night All! 💤😴

Still Tired Mon!!(practicing my Jamaican) lol

Well, today I felt sick and tired. I don’t know why. I had chills all day and my tummy felt/feels pukey. (My iPad doesn’t like that word!) I spent the morning sleeping in until about 9:45-10:00. Which was nice. Even though I was tired, it took me forever to fall asleep last night. I was tossing and turning. I couldn’t get comfortable. It was terribly frustrating when I felt so darn tired. I was like, he! I can finally go to sleep at bed time, then when I finally get to lie down, I can’t sleep for the life of me. I really wonder if it is because I’m no longer taking my Suboxone. Dr Hauptman, my pain dr won’t like that one bit!! The good thing is that I haven’t had any huge flare-ups of pain, so maybe it was meant to be and I didn’t actually need it anymore…I don’t know. All that I do know is that I wish I could sleep better. 

Once we got up, I sleepily drank my coffee, which didn’t even really help with the sleepiness. As the day progressed, my tummy started to feel ill. I got the shakes for a while. I houngan I was just really hungry, but eating didn’t really help. I helped my middle daughter bake brownies. I think we overcooked them.They’re a little hard, but hopefully The kids will eat them. I certainly don’t need them. I need to lose weight not gain it!! I have fallen off the Weight Watchers wagon.     I’m having a difficult time getting back on, but if we’re going to Jamaica, I really would like to feel a lot better in a bathing suit than I currently do!!

After the brownies were done, we had to get ready to go to dance. I drove her to dance around 3:30. I had to stay in the city, because there was a parent’s meeting at 5:00, so it didn’t make sense to drop her off at 4:00 and then drive home, to turn around and drive back. So, I stayed in the city and went and got us each a sub from Subway. That’s when I was having the shakes and really thought that I needed food to help! Unfortunately, the food didn’t help…it did help kill time a bit, then I read my Jamaica book in the car until it was time to go in for the meeting. The meeting depressed me…about 80% of it was spent talking about the upcoming Disney trip that the dance school is going on. What an opportunity! The kids get to dance in a Disney parade all through Disney. They get to perform on stage. They get training classes. The prices were very reasonable too. It’s so sad. I really wish we could do this for her! I just don’t think it’s a true possibility. It’s not realistic. I really wish we could afford for at least her to go and spend her time with another family. I know some would welcome her with them. What a cool opportunity. I left feeling like worst mom ever. All these wealthier families are like right on, sounds great, sign us up, etc.etc.  I just stayed quiet I knew it wasn’t realistic right now. My hubby’s job is not feeling all that secure after last weeks crap…I’m kind of freaked out by it. I’m so used to him having employment, I don’t know what we’d do if he lost his job!! So I’m not currently in a position where I can say, sure you can go dance in Disney land. 

After the meeting, I drove home and stopped at Sobeys to grab a few groceries. Then I went home to my daughter and son, my hubby was at a funeral all day. His old friend’s brother hung himself. Very sad. He was only 32 years of age. So many years of life ahead of him. When I got home, we put the groceries away and then we did the dishes – fun stuff right!! My oldest decided to order pizza. I only had a couple slices. I had the sub a few hours earlier and my tummy still wasn’t great… she had to go to bed early, for work tomorrow. My son and I played a game for a bit, then I watched a little bit of tv and then it was get ready for bed time. And here we are!! It’s almost midnight and I’m beat!! I’m going to head to bed…well, I’m already in bed, I’m going to go to sleep!! Night all💤😴‼

A Muddled Week -A Lazy Day

I am beyond tired today. What a day of tiredness. It was even worse than yesterday!! I could hardly keep my eyes open. My younger daughter wasn’t feeling well this morning, so she stayed home from school. I flopped on the couch and we watched The Bachelorette together. It’s so old now. We’re really behind. It ended ages ago and we’re watching pvr’d episodes. I can’t believe I haven’t heard or seen any spoilers yet!!  It’s just a fun show to watch. I know it is serious to the people on it, if you’re truly looking for your potential partner for life. But I enjoy seeing all of the cool places that they travel to and the fun things they get to do. It’s very cool. They were in Sweden in today’s episode and Denmark I think. Pretty cool. Afterwards we just watched a Reno show of some sort. She was feeling a bit better, so she went to school for the afternoon. There’s a new city bus that comes out to Beaumont. My daughter and her friends wanted to try it out, since it’s free for September. A whole group of them went on it after school. They took it to century park and then took the LRT to Southgate. They stayed at Southgate for a bit, then did the whole thing in reverse to get back home. I was okay with it as long as they all stuck together as a group. That way if they got into the wrong LRT or something they’d be together. But, they were fine. They took all of the correct things and got to where they meant to go and back home again. It’s crazy how grown up they’re getting. My baby girl…

This afternoon my oldest daughter played a video game while I napped on he couch. I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. So I decided to stop fighting it and just went to sleep. It’s actually one of my favourite HGTV days, because it’s beach day! They go to the Caribbean and buy properties and tell you about the islands and it’s all so beautiful and hot and I think that I could easily live that kind of life… I really enjoy watching it. My daughter recorded all of today’s episodes for me while I slept, so that I could watch them later. Which is exactly what we did. 

Once the kids came home from school and I woke up a bit, not much I still felt very tired, we started to watch the Caribbean Life episodes that were on today. My son sat in between us. He likes answering the trivia questions that they ask before each commercial break. He played on he iPad and watched the shows a bit too. He also went downstairs for a while to be with my hubby, who was playing one of his video games downstairs. What a lazy-ass day it was!! I wish I knew why I felt/feel so darn tired!! It’s maddening feeling like you can’t keep your eyes open!! I got nothing done at all, because I was barely functioning for most of the day!! Well, tomorrow my daughter and I are pulling her bed out from the wall…again! And spraying the bug stuff all along the baseboards all around her room.  We’re washing her blankets, most of the clothes are done. She’s slept in my bed all week and my hubby has been on the couch!! Not fair to him. We really have to get her room bug-free!! So things can go back to normal! What a strange week!! A bad work week for my hubby, a buggy week for my daughter, another week of major tummy pain for my oldest daughter, and a sleepy week for me. Crazy!!  My son’s week seemed pretty normal, so that’s good I guess. Weird. Everything all at once right. That’s just Murphy’s law. Right?! Well, I’m still tired. I’ve been running my eyes all day. I’m going to head to bed. Night All💤😴‼

Another Sleepy Day!

Today was like a repeat of yesterday…not a good day for my hubby. He’s majorly stressed out. I don’t know what is going to happen with work, but something’s gotta give… not a good situation!

I was tired again today. I didn’t sleep well again. I spent a big chunk of the night just lying here. I’ve been thinking, I wonder if the reason that I haven’t been able to sleep is that I haven’t had my Suboxone (because my hubby’s stupid new health insurance people won’t cover it! So I couldn’t get it, the pharmacy wanted $500 for it!!) it’s been about a week now that I haven’t had it and I’ve had difficulties sleeping for the last week or so. So maybe the Suboxone made me sleepy. It is a type of pain killer (for my face pain) and many pain killers make you drowsy. The problem is, I’m tired during the day, falling asleep practically, but I’m lying here at night…too frustrating! Well, if that’s the case, hopefully I get used to having it out of my system, sooner rather than later! (Rather then or rather than?? Hmmm…did I write that incorrectly??) 
Today we (my hubby and I) watched some HGTV and then, once my daughter got up, we watched Big Brother. It was the last two episodes from the summer, including the finale. And, I gotta say, I’m shocked by who won!! I mean it aired last night -spoiler alert- but the winner is a shocker. One of the best players made it to final two and he played the game well, very well, and the other player just floated along and did the bidding of others. But the jury this year, talk about bitterness and sore-losers!! Instead of rewarding the great strategic player, who pretty much called the shots all summer long, they gave it to the annoying floater, who couldn’t think for himself! Crazy ness! I mean what a stupid jury!! Get over yourselves, you got out played by a better player. He deserved to win the $500,000.00. I mean that’s half a million bucks! What is wrong with them? I was shocked. My daughter wasn’t only shocked, she was angry! Like physically boiling!! It’s one of the first juries that I have seen, that’s voted emotionally – out of anger and bitterness. Generally, the jury knows enough to vote for the far superior player. What a bunch of dumb dumbs. I just can’t get over it. How selfish. What a reason to win, just because they were angry hat part of his strategy was to get you evicted. That’s how the game’s played and he played it so well. I guess I’m a little angry too! I a, definitely ranting a little bit here. You could even tell that the host thought that it was the wrong winner. Sad…I feel bad for him. He did everything right. He just thought he was dealing with people who could think with their heads and keep their anger and bitterness out of it. It’s ridiculous! I just can’t believe that they were okay with giving the win to the doofus!! Idiots! I hope they look back and see how wrong hey were once they are more removed from it!! Well, that was a disappointing end to a good summer!! 

When the show was over, my hubby played his video game for a bit, while I read some of my Jamaica book. Then once the kids were home from school, we, my hubby and I, dropped my daughter off for dance. Then we went to the Sherwood Park Costco. I needed my Lax-a-Day and Metamucil. We needed a few other things too, while we were there. We were trying not to spend too much money, which is easy to do at Costco. We got things that we thought we absolutely needed. Whatever could wait until the next pay cheque, we didn’t buy. It’s so much fun living on a tight budget. It isn’t stressful at all…

After Costco, we went to The Local for supper. I’ve never been there. Did I get the name correct? We had supper and talked about his stupid situation at work. Not feeling a whole lot of job security right now…yikes!! Not a good thing to be feeling after booking a holiday!! Not good at all. I just want to know what the bleep ditty bleep is going on. I ordered a burger, and my hubby ordered a chicken sandwich. They were both quite good!! I was surprised by how tasty it was. 

After supper we got gas then we picked up our daughter from dance. She was starving. We talked about what to do for supper all the way home. I found some Subway coupons in the car and since my hubby and I already ate, we just needed food for the kids. We ended up grabbing Subway, then going home. It was almost 7:00 by the time we got home. I read some mor e of my Jamaica book, then put my son to bed. And I got ready for bed and am now here, writing this. My younger daughter may have a bad sore in her ear. She said it hurts, it almost feels swollen, like there’s a lump in it and when she tried to use a cue tip, there was blood on it. I may have to get a dr to look at it. I hope it’s okay.  I think I’m going to head for bed. I actually feel exhausted right now. Night All 💤😴‼

Rough Hubby Day😩😡

Today my hubby had a bad day at work. I hope it gets better there. Things haven’t been great there for a while…let’s just pray that things improve. Nothing like working your arse off and getting blamed for everything that goes wrong! Especially when you’re good at making things go right, but that’s never recognized or acknowledged. I just hope it gets better. I don’t like it when he’s unhappy. It affects everything and everyone. Not a good situation. I hope it gets better or something happens to change things. 

This morning I was half zombie lady. I was so tired that I was totally out of it. I was sitting with my coffee half-drinking it, half watching my hubby play a video game before work and half sleeping. I almost spilled my cup about a million times. My hubby actually got up to take it from me, which prompted me to wake up a bit more, to finish it off, then I drifted off again. Why have a been so darn tired this week?? Your guess is as good as mine! Still getting used to the new back to school schedule, still not sleeping well the past few nights, or a combination of both! It’s pretty frustrating. My daughter kept telling me that I should go lie down and have a real nap, not a half-assed one sitting up on the couch.  I’m tired now. Still. I was almost asleep singing to my son. I hope I can keep my eyes open long enough to finish this. Even if it ends up being a short post. 

I had the exciting job of…doing more laundry today!! Pretty fun eh??! What else did I do? Well, my daughter and I watched Fixer Upper again. I just love watching how they transform houses from a dump to a dream home. I really like the hosts design taste. Her vision for these huge homes that are often falling apart are crazy! Today she totally flipped one house, literally, the master and ensuite turned into the kitchen and dining room and the kitchen became the bedroom, she completely envisioned how much better things would work and flow if they were to flip things around. I wish we had the money to do a big renovation to our house. But, nope! We have what we have and that’s that!! So, I guess that I just have to live through the show vicariously!! That’s my life! Yes it is! It’s what I get to do. I wish there were more, but there’s not, I’m stuck like his boohoo…hey! (Sing to jingle bells what I just wrote, starting from that’s my life!!)

After school I watched one more episode of the show, then I made tacos for supper, they are a favourite of the kids. I tried to slip a couple stale leftover shells in there from last time we had tacos, but the girls noticed! Darn they’re growing up too fast…starting to notice things like that, sheesh!! After our early supper, my hubby drove my darling to her dance class. I had a nice shower. Then I watched some funny YouTube videos with my oldest for a while, until she had to go bed early. Then my son and I played the keep he balloon in the air game and then we played indoor basketball! We played that until it was time to start getting ready for bed. We got water and came up and got ready and I got my little ,an into bed and then myself. And here I am!!  And here I go…night all 💤😴‼

Tired Day…

I’m sitting in the car waiting for my daughter to be finished her hip hop class. I’m a bit early. There’s about 15 more minutes of class left. Now there’s only 5 minutes to go. My oldest just texted me, I was talking to her and it helped kill time. I spent most of my day with her again!! Well, my morning was with my hubby. It was snowing out!!! Crazy stuff! We didn’t really do much. We just chilled out and watched tv together. I was tired. All day today. I felt my eyes drifting shut then I’d snap them open suddenly and then they’d gradually start to try to close again. I haven’t slept well the past couple of nights. I’m probably thinking of bugs. Yuck!

This afternoon my daughter fell asleep beside me on the couch while I was looking on the iPad at places in Jamaica. I was looking on a site that I found. It’s like airbnb and vrbo. This one has a lot of the same places. The difference is that it’s not in Canadian dollars, it’s in pounds. So I have to multiply by 1.6 to get the accurate price. I just wanted to see if there was anything different. Most of them were repeats though. The waiting to find out where we’re going to book is killing me!! I looked at this site until I had to go pick up my kiddos from school. My son ended up going to a friend’s house after school, so I just had to pick my daughter up. My daughter (the younger one) wanted to make us supper tonight. She made chicken fried rice. She did it at school in her foods class and wanted to make it at home. So I didn’t have to make supper today. After supper I sat with my son for a bit, but not long though, because I had to drive my daughter to her hip hop class. While she was dancing, I ran to Winners. I bought her some black Converse socks for her Lyrical class. They’re doing their dance in socks this year and they’re practicing in socks, so they’re used to it. She wanted some good ones. I hope they’ll work. I also got myself some socks, some hairspray, blackhead stuff and basecoat nail polish that is supposed to get rid of the ridges on your nails. My thumb nails are covered in ridges, so hopefully it works!! I guess I’ll have to wait and see once I try it. It was only $4,99. Gotta love Winners!! The only problem is that things add up. I spent $50 and it feels like I hardly bought anything!! So frustrating!! I guess I didn’t need the basecoat…but that was the cheapest thing I bought!! I guess that’s life right!?  Little things adding up!  Oh…she’s here. I’ll finish briefly once I’m home. 

Hey. I’m in bed now. We got home at about 9:35. My son wasn’t asleep yet. He was waiting for me to put him to bed. So, I did that. Then I got myself ready for bed and here I am. I don’t know if I have much to add though. My tummy hurts, I feel like I’m eating my foamy pills (gavascon) like they’re going out of style!! Oops!! I almost fell asleep while singing songs to my son. I’m super sleepy. I think I’m going to turn in for the night. So, until tomorrow…night all💤😴‼

Traps And Spray!!

My oldest and I were together most of today – in between loads of laundry of course. We watched tv and did the dishes and tidied the living room together. We watched Fixer Upper an HGTV show. They help people find an older house to purchase and then totally renovate the entire house for them. The transformations are incredible to watch! How they visualize, in a dump of a house, what it could be like is mind boggling!! Then they demo the house and rebuild their vision. It’s cool to watch. Very easy to get into.

After picking the kids up from school, I drove my daughter to dance. Then I went to my mom and dad’s house to drop off their BC house key that my hubby had (since he was there on the weekend.) I had a cup of tea with my mom and dad and looked at some old photos, from when I was a kid that my dad put on a data stick from his old slides. Then my dad and I went to Home Depot. I bought some bug traps and spray that is supposed to kill carpet beetles. I’m going to set traps up wherever we’ve found them and spray all the baseboards and cracks and crevices around them. Hopefully this helps. If not, I may need to get a quote from an exterminator. I’m nervous about the cost of this. We are pretty dead broke and trying to save anything we can, which is really not that much, to go to Jamaica. I should’ve known that something would come up…something always does!! It’s so frustrating! It’s hard to get ahead. We usually break even or come out behind…sigh.

After Home Depot, I drove home and made supper. Then I did more laundry (pretty exciting life I lead eh??!!) When I let out the dogs I saw one of those huge spiders with the big, fat bodies climbing up the door frame – on the outside – thank Goodness!! It was huge!!! Yuck! I’m tired of bugs. I’m tired period. I think I’m going to keep this short and sweet tonight and go to bed at a normal time for once!! Sorry for being so negative about things. I just don’t want to have a huge expense come up before our trip – because I really want to go. If too much costs come up, we won’t be able to afford it and then I’d be heartbroken…

Night All! 💤😴

Heebie Jeebies!!

I currently have the heebie jeebies!!! I’m worrying about bugs…carpet beetles actually. We think that’s what they’re called. We’ve been finding these tiny black beetles in my daughter’s room. We cleaned the crap out of it. And today we bagged up all of the clothes – to be washed in hot water. We just found a couple more on a towel that my son was using a while ago. He was sitting on it to have a snack. We haven’t found many in my room. My hubby found one, but that was after stuff from my daughter’s bed sat on ours. Stuff we thought was clear of them…I don’t really know what to do to get them all and I’m afraid of the cost to have someone come in to take care of them. Now every little black fluff I see freaks me out!! I’m sitting up in my bed, after thoroughly wiping it off before getting in, feeling super paranoid. My daughter is sleeping in my bed and my hubby is going to sleep on the couch. She’s too freaked out to sleep in her bed. She found four on top of it this morning, after she got back from the sleep-over she was at last night.

Most of my day was spent trying to clean up her room. We bagged all of the stuffies. We got all her clothes in garbage bags down in the laundry room to be washed. We’ve already once pulled her bed out and cleaned under it and pulled off the mattress and cleaned all around it, etc. I don’t know how to kill these things!! I wonder if those sticky spider traps would work for these guys??!! I think that they’re pet safe. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! I’m grossed out! I’m worrying about if they’re in my son’s room , which is such a mess that you can barely go in there. I need to get my friends with their rubber gloves and vacuums and cleaning supplies to come over and help me do an overhaul

Of the upstairs!! Desperately. I should group text them and beg them for the favour. I’m pretty sure they’d come help me!! Guess I’m sending a group text out tomorrow!!

Not much more to say today. After cleaning her room, we went to my mom and dad’s for supper. When we first got there we played the card game Anomia. My dad took my son for a walk through the trees while my mom, the girls and I played Anomia. The reading in the game gets a little difficult for my son. After that, we played a couple rounds of five crowns. For supper we had BBQ’d burgers and potatoes. They were really good. Definitely hit the spot!!! After supper we had coffee, while visiting. Then we had to go home, because my oldest works tomorrow at 4am. So, she needed to go home and get to bed!! My hubby was home from BC when we got back from my parent’s house. We talked briefly about his weekend, then I got my son ready for bed and my younger daughter slept in my hubby’s spot in our bed. They’re both (my son and my daughter) sleeping beside me right now!! I am super tired right now. I’m going to join my kids and head for bed now. Night All! 💤😴

Gorgeous Hair My Dear!!

Oh how I missed you iPad!! My middle daughter kept “borrowing” my iPad, to the point that I haven’t actually used it in months!! I didn’t realize how much I missed writing my posts on it until I picked it up right now!  I’ve been using my phone. Which does work. I just prefer the iPad. Now that she has her new phone I noticed that she wasn’t using my iPad nearly as much as she had been. So, since it is mine after all, I went into her room (she’s sleeping over at a friend’s) and got it. I love it! 

Guess what I remembered to do or rather not to do?? I didn’t take my pills tonight! It’s getting late, not 2:00in the morning late, but midnight late. Usually I would have taken my pills when I was getting ready for bed. However, I decided that I should try to start taking them after I write my post, instead of before. It just makes sense really… I mean why take a sleeping pill if you don’t want to fall asleep yet?! I mean we all know how much I hate falling asleep while writing. I prefer to finish with time to mess around on Facebook or something before I go to sleep. Last night I looked up a couple hotels that are recommended in the new book about Jamaica that I bought. I love being able to do something like that before bed. I hate waking up with my phone (or the iPad) in my hands, sitting up with most of my post deleted having to start all over again! So, hopefully taking my pills after writing will help. 

My younger daughter got her hair done today. She got a ballyiage (okay, so that’s definitely not how you spell it!! It’s just what it sounds like!!) it’s where you lighten the bottom 2/3’rds of your hair…sort of. It’s hard to describe. It’s not dyed in a solid line though, it gets lighter gradually. It doesn’t look like it grew out and part isn’t dyed. It looks more natural. It actually looks really nice. She loves it! She is very very happy! She has wanted to dye her hair like this for some time. For her birthday she asked for money so that she could afford to get it done. And that’s what she’s done!! She was super excited and nervous this morning. But she is really happy with it. I will add a photo!! My photos of her hair are actually on my phone…hmmmm. I wonder if I can figure out hat air drop thingy. I’m going to try!! Hey!! I think I did it!! Here’s what it looks like from the back!!

There’s all that pretty light colour mixed in with her darker colour. It looks really pretty!! She sure has some long hair!!

After her hair appointment, we came home briefly, then we dropped her off at her friend’s house and went grocery shopping. We made a meal plan for the next couple of weeks and bought most of what we’ll need. I find when I plan ahead I eat better and we end up spending less money. If I’m deciding day to day what to eat, we end up spending much more money! When I have a plan I do still sometimes have to pick up some things, like fresh ingredients, but for the most part, we spend less. We went to No Frills, Sobeys and Shoppers. Then I was exhausted!! 

We came home and had supper, then my oldest had to go to bed, because she works at 4am. My hubby is still camping for a work wedding (he went to BC. They left Thursday early in the morning and stayed at my mom and dad’s BC house. Then they went to the campground on Friday and stayed there Friday and tonight. They’re driving home tomorrow.) and my middle daughter is at a friend’s, so it was just my son and I. We played for a bit. Then he played his Zelda game, while I looked at more places in Jamaica. Then we came up to bed and here I am. I think that I am going to go to bed now. Night all😴💤‼
