I did manage to roll out of bed today in time to take DH to work, kid asked to sleep in, and I am not one for leaving her alone in the house...But today, DH said, it was fine.
I am not going to lie, this helicopter mom was worried about her 10 year old being alone asleep for 20 minutes without us. Just the two aged dogs for help.
I found her in the same position she was in when I left her. Of course, this meant I needed to stand there until I could see her breathing. HELICOPTER!
I got into recliner chair and stayed there until she got up for the day. I was to have bloodwork done that required me to not eat or drink prior to it. So, waiting for her to wake up was like waiting for grass to grow. I was HUNGRY and wanted my COFFEE!
After the bloodwork, we went to the coffee shop in the hospital for a coffee, she got a pack of cheese crackers and a cookie and water. Breakfast of champions there.
When we got home I found myself glaring at the yard. The DH mowed the back of it last week, but neglected the front. Which means the grass/weeds were above knee high!
So, I spent a while outside forcing myself through high weeds and hoping to get done quickly and without seeing any snakes. It took me almost an hour and a half to get through those high weeds, no "quickly" there. It was noon heat, and I was miserable. Cursing under my breath every step that the DH could not be bothered to get this mowed. The only up side was the kid stayed outside with me, so I did not feel alone, and I did not see any snakes! Yaay.
As soon as we got inside, the kid ran to the shower for a cool down shower. And I was stuck flopping-sweaty and smelly, on the bed in front of our small air conditioner.
I was barely in calorie range today. I ate leftover pizza as both lunch and snack, but, I had them pre-baggied, so the portions were not overly huge. Yaay me.
My plan for tomorrow is to sleep in. Because it is summer, and I can do it if I want to.
