My day off.
Thursday, October 11, 2007
I should call this "rant" instead of blog...
I started my day off taking my son's father to an appointment that he had to go to, then back to his house so he and Nicholas could spend time together a.k.a. Nicholas coming to me for everything and his dad reading the paper and ignoring Nicholas (not so much, but compared to what I do...).
Take Nicholas to Burger King (which I completely disagree with for food for my child but it was the only thing nearby that was quick quick quick) and when I placed the order for his meal, instead of asking for a kids meal, asked for a pack of cigarettes..
Realizing I have NO MONEY and am running on empty emotionally, I order a FREAKING cheeseburger. Why does this happen to me???
Then off to buy wedding supplies with my best friend, which I was SO happy to do, but beforehand ran into 3 people from work so we got caught up in pre-wedding talk...
Finally arrive at Pat Catans...not too many issues here except its STILL my day off and I really haven't relaxed at all...Nicholas is HANGING all over me and Jonelle (my best friend/work partner/bride-to-be) decides to SPOIL my child...buys him a webkin and now he's asking her for everything...
Oops...still need to buy color for my other close friend who is coming over at 5 for me to take her BEAUTIFUL blonde hair to all over dark almost black...so I run to buy color
FINALLY, arrive home, clean up really quick, and my son decides that it's time for his medically necessary laxative to kick in. Yuck. Bath time. Change of clothes then "mommy I'm hungry"
Joanny arrives with pizza. I ate some. I suck at dieting right now. Whatever.
Finally, after 2 heads of color on my 2 friends (technically 3 if you include the highlights I put in the natural blonde after she went dark) I get to sit down and read my e-mail. Still have to watch Grey's. Thank the good Lord for DVR.
What kind of day off was this??? I think I am a people-pleaser.
All in all though, seriously, I LOVE doing things for other people but I am really stressed out right now. Food takes a lot of time to prepare and when I am running on empty I just forget and eat the damn cheeseburger.
I guess I shouldn't give myself a hard time because although I've been a member here for about a month or so, this is really the first week that I have been consistent for coming on.
Thanks for listening to me rant!
