Good Morning or is it? First I am awakened before 7:am by my child. Get up Mom, I can't sleep!!!!!!!!! I look at clock with one eye open, and it is 6:45. I look at this child standing there beside my bed, and say, Get back in your bed, it is too early. She goes back to her bed. Fifteen minutes later I hear, Well, are you getting up? Grrrrrrrrr. I tell her, No, I am sleeping in a little more. I also tell her, Do you know it is the law that Mommy's have to sleep on saturday. So, I close my eyes again. About 2 minutes later, Miss Smarty Pants tells me, Well, it's sunday so you can't sleep anymore. I tell her I'll get up in a few minutes. Then Miss Smarty Pants says, Well, I can't get up by myself, I might get into something and make a mess. HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knowing the history of this child and the messes she can make, I kicked off the covers and got up. Dragged myself into bathroom, splashed water on face. Walked into kitchen grabbed a diet pepsi. Sit down, sip pepsi, and she says, Well, turn cartoons on. Yea right, wake me up early and it is the news until 8:am. And news it was too. And what does she say? Nothing, her butt went into bedroom, climbed in her bed and said she was resting, lol. She's gonna make me get up, so she can get back into her bed and rest? It's gonna be a long day for sure.
It's going on 11:am and I just poured my second cup of coffee. I made a whole pot, cause I know I am going to need every bit of energy I can get today. Every room needs cleaning. Carpet needs vacuuming, bathroom and kitchen floors need mopping, dishes need to be done, clothes need to be folded and put away. Winter clothes have to be packed away. Refridgerator needs to be cleaned out, and washed down inside. Trash needs to be taken out. Beds have to be made. Yep, I need a whole pot of coffee.
Daniel is doing ok, with his chicken pox. The calamine wasn't working as well, so Emma went and bought a Benadryl anti itch cream, used for poison ivy or oak and has been putting it on him. Well, he's not scratching anymore, and running around saying itchy mommy. The bubbles have popped and are scabbing over now. She asked me if we want to come over today. HELL NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! I am not taking any chances of Rebecca getting them, or me. I'll just keep my butt in my apartment, stay cool and clean. And when dinner time comes around, I am ordering out. I am craving Spicey brocoli with garlic sauce. And steamed vegetable wontons. There my favorite's in chinese food. Besides after I clean the kitchen, I don't want to mess it up again cooking dinner. Lunch today, very easy. A tossed salad topped with tuna. Rebecca will even eat that.
I decided I want my hair layered. So, if I'm not too tired later today, I will layer it. Yes, I can cut my own hair, lol. Never went to school for it, but I can cut, style, trim, dye, frost, and perm hair. I'll post a before and after pic, if I cut it tonight. I just bought a new pair of scissors too. More coffee is needed, be right back, lol.
@%&*@%$&%@ grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, ever step on an aluminum pot lid bottom side up? JEEZ, that hurts. It had to be on floor right? I am gonna hide the lids for sure, lol. Miss Smarty Pants, just told me I should of picked it up so I didn't step on it. Hmmmmm, anyone want a kid? Anyone? Third cup of coffee, should do the trick.
Gonna drink it, fix lunch and get going on chores. I want to have it all done, and Rebecca bathed before sunset. Last night was only a 30% chance of storms and we got slammed from 8:pm until almost 10:30pm with storms. Tonight they say air is very unstable and 40% chance of storms. That alone tells me we're in for another round. I got the candles out just in case. Since I know no one is coming over, I'm keeping my door locked. Too many nuts in this city. And to be home alone with a child, makes me nervous. So locked doors it is. I will open it and lock it again after dinner is delivered.
I have searched and searched for a skirt type thing for my new bathing suit to hide my fat thighs, and I cannot find one. I even went on line to Lane Bryant where I order my clothes. So, I have decided I will make my own. I already have the material, and a sewing machine, so that will be a nice project for me. I also have to finish making the 3 other projects I started for dear friends of mine. I will work on them during the week. Hopefully in the next few weeks I have them done. Two of them will be done for sure, but the third one will take me a while. Itis big.
Well, I guess that's about it for now. Gonna have lunch now. I didn't eat breakfast, so lunch is needed. Today is veggie and tuna day for me. Trying to lose this big gut of mine. I'm taking it slow though. I'm not starving myself. That just makes dieting even harder. I'm adding more veggies and fruits, and alot more water instead of so much diet pepsi, which is full of sodium and it makes me retain water during the summer. I can't wait for Jersey tomato's and crabs to come in season. I can make a whole meal with steamed crabs and sliced tomato's.
Hope your all having a great weekend. If your out in this heat, be sure to drink lots of water, and wear sunscreen.
Love to you all...................................
