I know it's 4:30am and here I sit on the computer. But I woke up to use potty and Jim isn't here. But neither is the dirty laundry, so I know where he is. LOL. He likes to go to the laundry mat early when no one is in there. He'll come home and go back to bed for a couple hours, then get up for breakfast. This morning it is Spam and eggs, hashbrowns and toast, coffee. Later today we're going to my daughter Emma's for dinner. She's making a spiral ham for dinner.
Yesterday Rebecca and I went to Emma's because the girl's (Rebecca and Marissa) wanted to play. They played outside for hours with bubbles and sidewalk chalk. Dan told Emma and I if we needed to go out we could. HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!! We took him up on that offer, lol. Get out just the 2 of us and no kids, OH YEA!!!!!!!!!!!! So in my van we went and headed to Walmart. I bought Jim a pack of twin blade razors for when he shaves his head. Why he decided to go completely bald, I don't know. But it seems to be the in thing now here in philly with all his friends and co-workers. I also bought laundry soap, 2 white shirts for Rebecca for school and a shirt for me that was all on clearance. Rebecca's were 2.87 each and mine was 5.44. Emma bought a 40 piece silverware set, and summer outfits for Daniel and Marissa, 2 sets each and she also got laundry soap. As we're leaving Walmart she says Mom, I'm hungry, let's go have lunch. Hmmm, I was hungry beings I didn't eat breakfast, so we decided on Pizza Hut. We got the salad bar special, personal pan pizza's and breadsticks. I had iced tea (Raspberry flavor, yummy) and Emma had a Pepsi. We sat there and talked, ate our lunch and just enjoyed having a mother/daughter day out, which we had'nt had in so long. Emma thanked me for taking her out. She said she really needed it after what she saw the otherday that really upset her and she now knows she needs counciling. Their friend Chaz let them use his jeep for a couple days until his parents came to get it. Chaz signed himself in a detox center for alcohol and percoset abuse. When Dan had that fall off the building, his clothes were cut off him at the hospital and placed in a bag. They gave them to Chaz beings he was the one who went to hospital with Dan. He put them in back of Jeep and left them there. Well, the other day Emma cleaned out Chaz's jeep from all the fast food lunches, and all he has had, and when she picked up a plastic bag it ripped and out fell Dan's clothes he had on the day of the accident. She picked up the clothes, put them in another bag, but she broke down doing this. She started crying hard, shaking, heart racing, sweating, and in her head all she kept seeing was Dan falling over and over again. I didn't realize how much this affected her until now. I agree, she does need counciling, she was also traumatized when Dan was hurt. The only thing is, their insurance will only pay for inpatient therapy for her and not outpatient. So if she goes for therapy, it means I will be going over there to stay with Dan and the kids for the week she is gone. Which is ok, I will do anything for my kids and grandkids.
But anyways, we had a nice day out. We both needed it. Dan said the kids were no trouble at all. Which is good because he still has alot of pain getting up and down and moving around. But he did it and made them lunch of macaroni and cheese. As a gesture of being thankful we were able to go out, we brought him back a sausage and green pepper personal pan pizza and ya should of seen the smile on his face, lol. Emma made a pot of coffee and we sat the 3 of us and had coffee, then Rebecca and I came home and I fixed porkchops, saurkraut and mashed potatoes for supper. Jim was in heaven, he loves that.
Today I will clean up a little in my apartment and head over to Emma's around 2pm and enjoy spending time with everyone. Tomorrow starts a whole new week with home schooling Marissa and going to the school. Did I mention Rebecca's class and 3 other kindergarten classes are going to Philadelphia Zoo next month? Finally a school trip. I am already on the list to go with them. And yes I am taking the camera with me, lol. And extra batteries too.
I guess I will go now. I hope everyone has a great sunday. I know mine will be. Dinner at Emma's and a phone call I have to make at 4pm. That will make it a perfect day.
