A Different Way To Plan Supper!

This morning was much like every school day this week…my son woke up a half an hour early, played a game on my phone, got ready upstairs…yadda yadda yadda…I fed the dogs, let them out, said goodbye…yadda yadda yadda…

We decided that for supper we wanted to try something different tonight, so everyone had to come up with a new meal idea. Then we would all meet after school and share our ideas and we would decide on which meal we wanted to go ahead with. Whomever’s meal was chosen had to cook supper tonight! So, after school we did just that! Lucky me, my chicken fried rice was the chosen meal (even though I chose my younger daughter’s meal)! So, tonight I was actually out of bed for the first time in probably a good month and I cooked supper for everyone! There’s a dance competition going on this weekend called Dance Power. My daughter’s studio isn’t in this competition, but they are streaming it live. So she has been watching a lot of it. She stayed in the kitchen with me while I was cooking and I watched a lot of it with her. We’re getting close to competition season!! I have to get myself back into that mode…her first competition is in about 2 weeks!! I sure hope that they’re ready! The first one is supposed to be the hardest one that they’re in this year, or it has their toughest competition! So, of course their teacher wants them ready to bring it!! Anyway, I started supper fairly late and, clearly, we found out that it is a meal that takes some time to cook. Note to self…if following this recipe again – give myself plenty of prep-time!! We ended up eating much later than I intended! However, it was pretty darn tasty, if I do say so myself!! After supper, my oldest daughter had a shower and went to bed, because she has to work early in the morning. My younger daughter took it upon herself to organize the Tupperware container cupboard, because it was, “driving her crazy!!” While she did that I let the dogs out, got water bottles ready and rinsed off any lids/containers that needed it as she went through them. Then she went upstairs to her room and my son came upstairs with me. He played Roblox on my oldest daughter’s laptop on my bed while I just rested for a bit. Then I put the laptop away and got him into bed. Then I went on my phone for a while. Now I’m going to get ready for bed.

Played Games With My Son

This morning my son got up early so that he could go downstairs to play Fortnite with his dad. I got him ready upstairs and then went downstairs with him. I let the dogs out and fed them. Then I said goodbye to him and my daughter and I went upstairs and back to bed. The black car didn’t start this morning for my daughter to get to work, so my hubby drove her. He planned on getting it running during the day, so that he could pick her up at 3:15 and I could get the kids from school. However, when she got there she saw that she was actually off at 2:45 today. So, he was able to pick her up and get home on time to get the kids. I got up and made myself some hard boiled eggs and a piece of toast. Then I drove my daughter to dance. When I got home after dropping her off, my son came upstairs and we played a couple games together. My hubby and oldest daughter went to Costco together. When they got back, I had some homemade soup and then I laid back down until it was time to get my son ready for bed. Once he was asleep, I went on my phone for a while. Now I’m going to get ready for bed.

Just Drove To Dance Today!

This morning was much like many past mornings. My son woke up a half an hour early, played his game on my phone. Then I got him ready upstairs. I went downstairs and let the dogs out and fed them. Then I said goodbye to him and my daughter and I went back upstairs to bed. My daughter came home quite early from her spare. Earlier then normal, because it was early dismissal today. We were actually able to get to dance on time on a Wednesday for once being that it was early dismissal! We could leave at about 3:15, instead of 3:30! She starts at 4:00 on Wednesday’s and that’s her rushed day! It’s difficult to get her there on time. Today was much more relaxed! I laid back down when I got home. At around 6:00 I had some soup and then I laid down again until I had to go get her from dance again. I got up at about 8:15 and got ready and drove back to the studio and picked her and her friend up. We dropped off her friend and then came home. I filled up our water bottles and let out the dogs. My hubby already had my son asleep. So I went on my phone. Now I’m going to get ready for bed.

Finally, A Dentist For My Daughter!!

This morning my son woke up a half an hour early to go downstairs and play Fortnite with his dad. So, I got him dressed and ready to go downstairs and then said goodbye to him. I also said goodbye to my daughter. Then I went back to bed. I didn’t sleep well last night anyway. So, I fell back asleep quite quickly. My oldest daughter’s teeth have been bothering her for months. She can feel her wisdom teeth coming in. However, she hasn’t had any dental coverage and has been unable to see a dentist. Her work found out that her teeth were bothering her and gave her her benefits early. So she finally saw the dentist this morning!! They said that her wisdom teeth are definitely coming in and that they look angry!! They don’t pull them there for some strange reason, so they are referring her to a place that does. She should hear from them within a week or two. Which is good. She cannot drink cold or hot beverages, only lukewarm, and she can only eat certain things. It’s been going on for quite some time! She’s now the only one in the house with dental coverage!! I got out of bed at about 2:45. I got dressed and ate some oatmeal and a banana. Then I finished making the homemade chicken soup with rice that my hubby started. He boiled the carcasses last night and separated the bones from the meat this morning. He added the veggies as well. I did most of the spices, the rice and the beans. Then at about 4:00 I drove my daughter to dance. After dropping her off, I went to Winners and bought some face cream. Then I bought an earl grey tea (2milks, 1honey) from Starbucks this time, since it was closer to the Winners. Then I went back to the studio and waited for her to be finished dancing. It wasn’t as cold outside as it has been, so I was able to turn off the van, instead of idling the whole time, to anger the environmentalists – lol When she was finished, we drove back home. I got a bowl of the soup and took it upstairs. The essay that my daughter was working on over the weekend was due tonight by midnight. She was working on the conclusion paragraph and adding a couple of quotes. I helped her a bit with that. Then I finished my soup. My son came into my room and we play a couple levels on one of our games. Then he went back downstairs and I laid downstairs. My daughter had me read through her essay before sending it to her teacher. Then I went back into my room until it was time to get my son into bed. Once he was asleep, I went on my phone, like usual. Now I’m going to get ready for bed.

Another Bedroom Day…Sigh

This morning my son got up a half an hour early so that he could play his How To Train Your Dragons game on my phone before getting ready for school. Then he got dressed and ready, I said goodbye to him and he went downstairs. I said goodbye to my daughter and then I went back to bed. I wish that I was feeling human again. I have some of my appetite back, but it’s not back completely. My daughter came home early, because it’s the day that she has her spare. I didn’t really get out of bed until it was time to get ready to drive her to dance. My hubby didn’t have to get my son after school, because he was going to his friend’s house straight from school. So I got up at the time that he would usually be leaving to pick him up and got dressed, then had some oatmeal. Then I drove my daughter to dance. I drove back home and went on PowerSchool to fill in a form that I couldn’t forget to get done. Then I just went back upstairs…this feels like it’s getting a bit stupid really! My hubby made me eggs again at supper and I had those and they seem to stay down fine. Then my oldest daughter came and laid beside me until it was time to get my son ready for bed. Then I get him ready for bed. Once he’s finished everything and goes to sleep I go on my phone for a while. Now I’ll get ready for bed.

A Difficult Essay Topic!

This morning again, my son went on my phone for a while, before he went went downstairs to have breakfast. I stayed in bed until about 1:30. Then I got up and got dressed and ready to go out. I went downstairs and ate some oatmeal. Then I drove my daughter to her solo rehearsal. Once she was finished, we went to South Common, because we had to look for some ripped, black jeans for her hip hop costume for dance. We went to a couple stores and ended up finding a pair at Stitches. She has to wear the whole costume to class on Wednesday to make sure they all have what the teacher wants. Once we found the jeans we drove back home. At home I went upstairs and put my pjs back on. Then I helped my daughter with her essay that’s due on Tuesday, the one that she was struggling with yesterday. My hubby made breakfast burritos for supper, but I just had hard boiled eggs and plain toast. I didn’t think that fried, greasy sausages and stuff would be that great on my tummy. After supper I went back up to my bedroom and laid back down. My daughter came in when she finished her paragraph in her essay to read it to me. When my son came upstairs I got him into bed. Then I went on my phone like I usually do. Now I’m going to get ready for bed.

I Ate A Real Supper!

This morning my son went on my phone for a while beside me. He played his game and watched YouTube videos. Then he went downstairs. I stayed in bed for a while, still just not feeling well. Tired of not feeling well, but not feeling well just the same… I got up at around 2:00 – 2:15 and got in the shower at about 2:45. After I got out of the shower and I got dressed, all of us, except my younger daughter, who had a lot of homework to get finished, went to my parent’s house. It’s still bloody cold outside! When we got there my dad and my daughter went downstairs to his work room to soak her nails in pure acetone, because she had her nails done last weekend, but she really doesn’t like them and she wanted the fake ones off. So he was helping her get rid of them!! My mom, my son and I played a game that we found in my mom’s closet. We had never played it before, so we thought that we would give it a try. My hubby didn’t feel like playing, so he sat on the couch on his phone. The game was kinda fun, once we figured out what we were doing! I can’t remember what it was called though, something like Rummi-o I think. Once we finished playing, my son and I set the table and my dad and daughter came upstairs and helped get ready for supper. I actually ate a bit of the supper that my mom cooked! Just very small portions of everything. But at least I ate! After supper, my dad and daughter finished her nails and the rest of us played crocano. Then we decided to go home. I was feeling pretty wiped, because that’s the longest I’ve been up and doing something since I’ve been sick and my daughter has to work early tomorrow morning. So we ventured back out into the cold and came home. My younger daughter wasn’t done her essay yet ! She was stressed about it! She’s certain that she chose the incorrect answer! I kept telling her that as long as she can back her answer up, then it’s not wrong. However, she doesn’t feel like she’s doing a good job of providing sufficient evidence from the book to back up her point of view. Ah, the good old days of english class!! I was feeling pretty tired and sick, so I filled up water bottles and let the dogs out and went upstairs to my bedroom. I got my son into bed. Then I went on my phone. Now I’m going to get ready for bed.

Drawing With My Son

This morning my son woke up early and went on my phone and played a game for a half an hour before it was time for him to get up and get ready for school. Then I got him dressed and ready to go downstairs with my hubby. I stayed upstairs again this morning. I fell back asleep quickly today. Probably because I didn’t really sleep well last night. I don’t really know why I didn’t sleep well, I just didn’t. Again today I felt both hungry and sick, so maybe I’m starting to get better and the medication is really wiping me out?! Who knows anymore?? At about 2:30 both my oldest daughter and my hubby came upstairs and asked me how to cook a roast. So I told them. Then my younger daughter came to talk to me when she got home from school. Closer to supper time my son came upstairs and wanted to draw with me again, so we did that together on the bed. Then my hubby asked me to make gravy for them. I didn’t eat the roast. I had some eggs and plain toast. Then I laid down again, until my son came back upstairs and we finished our drawings. Then he went on my phone for a while. Afterwards, I got him into bed. Then I went on my phone. Now I’m going to get myself ready for bed I think.

Still Sick…Week 4!!

This morning my son and hubby wanted to get up early to play their Fortnite game. So when the alarm went off I got him up and dressed and ready to go downstairs. Then he woke up his dad and they went downstairs. I said goodbye and stayed upstairs. I went back to bed right away. At around 11:00 I was feeling both sick and a little hungry, so my hubby made me a couple hard boiled eggs. I don’t know if those are that great for you when you’re sick or not, but I seemed to tolerate them okay. I stayed in bed until my daughter got home from school during her spare at around 1:30. Then I helped her with her english project, in my bed. At around 3:30 I drove her to dance. Once I got back into Beaumont after dropping her off, I stopped at the Shoppers and picked up her prescription. Then I went back home. I made myself some chicken noodle soup and took it upstairs with me. After eating the soup, my son and I sat on the bed drawing together. Then he went downstairs to play video games and I stayed upstairs. When it was his bedtime I got him into bed. Then I went on my phone for a bit. Now I’m going to get my butt ready for bed.

Picked Up My Mom And Dad Today!!

This morning my son woke up at 7:00 and played his How To Train Your Dragons game on my phone for a half an hour, before getting ready for school. Then he got dressed and brushed his hair and stuff. Then he went downstairs. I let the dogs out and said goodbye to the kids. Then I went back upstairs and back to bed! Still bloody feeling sick…strange because I truly thought I would be feeling better by now. I’m really hoping that it’s the medication that is bugging me now…who really knows anymore?! It’s a pretty strong dose, I have to take 3 pills, 3 times per day. So, hopefully it’s just my body dealing with the Flagyl. At about 2:45 I got out of bed and got myself presentable and made sure that my oldest daughter was also ready to go. Then we picked up my son from school. From there we went to the airport and picked up my parents. They have been in California, Palm Springs and Mesa Arizona to visit a couple of my dad’s brothers and to just get away! They picked a great time to be gone too…they left just before all of this darn cold weather started!! Although it seems like it’s not quite over yet and they’re back home, so they didn’t quite miss it all!! Anyway, we drove them to their place in the city and went in with them for a short while. Then we came back home. My hubby drove my daughter to dance in the car and went to his brother’s house, since it was his birthday yesterday. He stayed there until it was time to pick up the girls from dance, then he picked them up and they came home. When we came home from my parent’s house, I went back upstairs…I know, that’s exactly what you expected!! My daughter stayed downstairs with my son. She made sure that he got fed. She has to work early tomorrow morning and wanted to shower before bed, so he came up early and played on his Switch beside me in the bed. Then I got him into bed when it was his bedtime. I went on my phone for a while afterwards. Now I’m going to get ready for bed, because I’m feeling super tired and nauseous.
