If you missed the start of this series, you can find it here. A lot of things will be the same or very similar.
All the clouds we’ve had recently were gone. The sunset was simple and pretty.
Some Parrots did a high flyby, and my friend Phoebe stopped by for a minute. The wind wasn’t as strong, but it was still cold.
We all had a pretty good evening. Bath and bedtime went fine. I did all my usual Stuff and Things. I’m still adjusting to Ben’s schedule being later, which makes MY schedule later… all good. I konked around 11:30pm or midnight.
Several brief wakeups, mainly because Sophie Cat insisted on sleeping ON me. I moved her next to me every time I woke up, then I was waking with her on top of me again. Sigh… The 6:30am med alarm is what finally woke me for good. Very nice!
I don’t know if it was coinkydink or if The Boys heard me and/or the alarm, but they came barreling out of Ben’s room right after I turned the alarm off. Ben ran straight for the baño, and Zeus ran straight for me. I was already getting out of bed, so my ears didn’t get sniffed today.
I went straight to the med box, got Ben’s morning meds, filled the lunchbox water bottle and met him at the baño door, and doped his face. Then I got his big water bottle, his tablet and charger, and settled him on the couch. My turn in the baño. Then outside to look at the sky, and let my Velcro Dog lift a leg.
A delivery truck was parked in the way, so I had sunrise and chips this morning.
Daughter got up around 7:30am and started her Couch Sittin Duty. I went and got Horizontal on my bed and started working through email, yadda yadda yadda. When the alarm for my walk went off, I just turned it off. No snooze today. I planned to go around 10am.
When I hollered out the 9:30am med I reminded myself about the walk. Then when I hollered out the 10:30am med alarm, I kicked my butt into gear and changed clothes. I was still cold, tired and lazy, but I needed to go walk.
I did the same two miles again in thirty-two minutes with two picture stops. One was to identify a tree (my Handy Dandy App says its a peach tree. Hmmm…) and the other was this…
…it makes me think of Anne Rice novels. Anyway, back home and back into my PJs. Back to Horizontal.
Daughter said she was placing a big Amazon order, and did I want to add anything. I told her I couldn’t think of anything. Then she kinda squealed. Okaaay… She started reading out an email she’d just received. “Dear Parents…” after she finished reading the entire thing, I squealed! Starting on April 5th, Ben’s school will be full time on campus. We’re going back to FIVE DAYS A WEEK! Can I get a WOOT WOOT?! Can I get a Hallelujah?! I started singing and Happy Dancing.
Ben came running in from outside, saw me dancing, and asked me for more chalk. We resumed our regularly scheduled programming. I told Daughter I’d order him some more shirts and vests. She suggested more pants too. Three hundred dollars later… Ben will be the most stylish kid at his school. I recently ordered some Hello Kitty disposable masks too. I have so many things being delivered over the next couple weeks, and ninety-nine percent of it is for Ben.
Daughter decided to make adobo for herself, and made some white chicken for Ben around 1pm. He ate part of it, then went outside to sit in the Sun and play with the chalk out there.(Twelve more boxes of forty-eight being delivered today) I was still Horizontal, still working through WP, when I got a notification that Younger had transfered money to me. Nice! She must’ve gotten her refund, her stimulus or both. She’d been worried about it. More Good News!
Ben found some very thin worms that had come up through the cracks between the bricks in the back yard area. We have an area that’s paved in bricks. Anyway, he said we should give them to Sven (so sweet) but I don’t trust the soil under the bricks, so I can’t feed the worms to Sven. I moved them to the soil by the Pecan Tree.
We’re Driving Miss Daisy tonight. First time since the time change. Meds for Ben before we leave, then bath and bed after. Hopefully it all goes well. Sunset might be tricky though. We’ll see how it goes.
Lots of good stuff today! I got decent sleep. I got money from Younger, and I got the super-fantastic news that Ben will be back to full time school soon. It’s so awesome after all the craptacular stuff that’s happened to have good stuff happen. We’re almost at the end of the daily Adventures… I can’t wait to see what happens next!
