The vinyl will be installed tomorrow!!! I have been at my house since Sunday. It is like all my problems and anxiety has dissipated in thin air. I just started being able to get rested last night. I am feel better today. I dropped the 5 pounds I gained from being through the chaos. That makes me feel wonderful!
I took my car for an oil change on Saturday. I am getting my power steering hose fixed this Sunday. I am purchasing tires Saturday the 21st. Then my car will be completely ready for my trip.
I have a countdown calendar. I am so excited I have never taken a vacation before. Things are just coming together. I have 24 days before I leave. Yes I said DAYS!!!
I have plans for Kaleb, my son, to see his sister and his niece and nephews. I am totally taking pictures. Kaleb has so much fun over there.
I get to see my biological father, Pete and his wife, Stella. We are suppose to go to dinner with family so I can be introduced. I just met him and the family last June. It is a very new relationship.
I am going to grab a cup of java with my sister, Lucy. I am assuming she will not have time to hangout. She is in advance intensive nursing program. She has very long hours and lots of work.
Rosalee, my baby sister, is in classes too but her schedule is more flexible. She wants to go to the movies. I am not sure if I have time for the movies. I will have to see when I get up there.
I want to see a couple of my family members. I want to get some pictures. I am taking my cousin, Kay with us to the pumpkin farm. I am very excited to see her.
My best friend, Jamie will be with me most of the time. We have plans for a pumpkin farm, and pancake breakfast that we go to every year. The kids have so much fun. I believe Kaleb will have fun with that as well.
I am stopping by my friend, Sharon's house and met her little baby. She will be almost 2 months old. This is Sharon's first baby. She looks so beautiful. Lots more pictures.
My other girlfriends and I are going out drinking, dance and singing one night. I am very excited to have a girls night. Most of the woman in my life have kids and its shocking they all managed to get babysitter. We have a day and time and place. Perfect, PERFECT, PERFECT!!
Of course, during my vacation I will be going clothes shopping. All and I do mean ALL of my clothes are at least 2 sizes to big. I have to wear belts and safety pins to keep things where they need to be. I am really hoping to be able to fix a 18. My 20 size clothes hang on my body. However the one pair pants that are 18s just seem to touch me a little too much.
On my to do list is to gather up all my clothes that are in good condition and give them to my girlfriends. They have been wanting my clothes forever. They finally get their wishes come true. I really hoping to WOW them in October!!

After all the crap went on with my sister yesterday, I told my mom that my sister is a brat. I am not apologizing to her.
She turned to me and her reply, "You are a brat too."
"Please Mom tell me why you feel that I am a brat." as I looked at her confused.
She took a moment to gather her thoughts and then spoke, " We are fixing your floor and your plumbing. We have to fixed everything in your house while you are saving to go to New York. I watch your baby. You always assuming we are going to take care of you. When you do need help you are to proud to ask."
"I did not ask you to fix my home however you offered. If you did not want to fix it then you should not have offered. I did not ask." was my first response.
She looks at me a little speechless. I continued on.
"I found a day care and I am paying for it. I asked you to pick what days you want to watch your grandson. I did not ask you to watch him. You wanted to watch him. At any given time let me know you do not want to watch him and he will be in the day care those days. That is why I found one." as I wait for her response.
She is still speechless.
"My priorities are different then yours. I want to use the money I saved to go to New York because that is important to me. Just because you do not approve of where I spend or use my money does not make me a brat. Is there any other situation that implies that I am a brat?"
I was hoping that she would come up with something.
"Well, maybe I am using the wrong word", she replied.
"Like I was saying before, my sister is a brat", waiting for her replied.
"Why do you think your sister is a brat? What is difference between you too?" as she smirked.
"I expect from myself to be adult. I need to rely on myself. Sometime I have to accept I will not get everything every time I want it, need, or desire it. I do not expect you or dad to give me any of your time, money or energy. I am adult. I am responsible for myself and my son. However, my sister, a few weeks away from being 31 years old, is married and is expecting. Her expectations that she puts on our parents makes her a brat. That is why I can say she is a brat. I will not apologize. She needs to grow up." as I stood my ground.
Mom said nothing. I won!!! She now has to think about what I said. She knows how I feel and it makes sense. It only took 33 years to get my mom to understand I have a brain and I know how to use it.

This long weekend my brother-in-law, father and myself tore up the flooring in my living room, my bedroom and master bathroom. The flooring is finished in the living room just waiting to put the vinyl on.
Unfortunately, when the bathroom carpet was pulled up the flooring was very bad. So we had to take up 3 square feet of flooring up and replace it. However, after pulling up the subfloor we found a steady leak. We had to stop. We are waiting on a handyman to come out today and fix it.
This meant Kaleb, my son and I had to spend the last 2 nights over to my parents' house. At that house there are 5 people, sister, brother-in-law, mom, dad and grandma.
Kaleb has a hard time sleeping there. This morning he woke up at 2:45 am. After changing him, laying him back down and trying to get him back to sleep my lovely sister woke up.
She came to the leaving room asking, "What is the problem?"
My reply, "This is what it is like to be a parent."
She rolled her eyes and headed back to her room.
I finally get the baby settle back down but not asleep and by this time my alarms goes off. I have to get up at 4:10 am. I get ready and my little man is following me. He footsteps echo throughout the hall waking my sister again. I ask her if she will be getting up with the baby because I have to go to work.
Wait for it.... Her responds, "I guess I have too. Why don't you go home?" as she rolls her eyes and uses her frustrated voice.
I replied, " I cannot control when Kaleb gets up. I will get my mom up instead. You do not have to watch the baby. And you better get use to it. You are having a baby."
"Yeah, but my baby is not here yet!", my sister's rely as she rolls her eyes and goes back to bed.
She is due in January. This is her first baby. She acts like everything is going to be by the book. It is like she is living in a fairytale world. Does she not realize that babies usually do not sleep all night long. It is really hard and tough job to being a parent!
To add to my questions, does she not realizes that my house is unsafe for a baby to walk around where there is a hole that leads right to the ground.
HOW INCONSIDERATE ARE YOU?
DO YOU HONESTLY THINK I WANT TO SLEEP ON THE COUCH?
DO YOU HONESTLY THINK I LIKE MY LIFE TO BE IN CHAOS?
DO YOU HONESTLY THINK I ENJOY BEING AT A PLACE I HAVE NO PRIVACY?
OR AROUND PEOPLE THAT BITCH, YELL AND COMPLAIN ABOUT EVERYTHING?
DO YOU REALLY THINK I WANTED TO WAKE UP ONE AND HALF HOURS EARLY?
COME ON, GROW UP AND STOP BEING SO SELFISH!!!
