Finally a good week
Monday, September 02, 2013
This week was great! My mom got her new lawyer and got thru probate court pretty fast! She is still having issues with what was covered the last few months of my dads life as far as insurance goes. Hopefully it's not as bad as we think. She has a new prospect coming to look at the office this morning to buy. I went yesterday and spent 9-10 hours there with her cleaning and getting it ready. Her friend came as well and helped which was so nice. Because my mom has hoarding issues and her friend was good at asking her if she NEEDED things. This has not been easy for her, throwing away stuff that she bought for a place she worked in for 36 yrs. She still feels like the boarders are gonna be back. She is having issues getting rid of things like brooms aww =( But we are getting through it and we threw out a lot yesterday. I dropped off 4 big black plastic bags of stuff at the homeless shelter thriftshop last night at 10 pm. Thank goodness for it being on my way home 1/2 mile from my house. My brother is still livid with me. He just seems angry all the time. My mom said he's angry with everyone and every aspect of his life. He is still really hurting. I just wish he would stop attacking her. She is so fragile right now and she can't handle it. My mom got rid of all of my dads plants except this one monster Bonsai tree that my dad loved to death. I figured if anyone is up to the challenge, it's me lol Wish me luck! I think we might need to read a book just to own this thing.
My work week was great! I feel like I finally found my groove with this job and I am really enjoying it. My coworkers seem awesome and if not I am learning to use my headphones more. I like that the job is active and there is no dull moment. Plus you meet brand new ppl everyday. Only challenge is waking up in the dark, but also I am usually done by 11 am so I can go home and nap. I also shot for my health food job this weekend as well. Shooting for a living feels awesome especially in a good situation this time.
Some photos from the farmers market for work
Lets talk food and exercise! I hit 6 fitness classes in the past week. I managed to get up and walk the dogs almost every morning last week even if we had to walk in the dark. Eating has been ehhh. I woke up weighing 154.8 this morning somehow. I will take it! Funny story yesterday, I went to this little mexican restaurant with my mom and her friend and I didn't know what to order the menu was epic. At the last minute I got this giant burrito with chicken instead of steak in it (Giant since I figured I would never eat again, since my mom eats once a day). It came and my mom was staring at it perplexed and said "How did you know what dad always ordered?" I ordered exactly what he always got with chicken instead of steak, just like him. He must have been there with us.
My mom sent me home with tons of peaches from her trees, my plan today is making peach pies!
