Day 7

Ok it’s day 7 and I explained yesterday that today was the first day of 10th grade for the kiddo and that I was going to try to get a before picture of him….

Well it didn’t work….these are my morning pictures of my kiddo 


Ok first of all….I feel like we have half the high school here…

Second,  y’all I zoomed this picture to get it so the stop isn’t that close to my house. Now people who know me in real life know I am just a loud person,  but y’all,  I don’t got anything on this lady bus driver…seriously I could hear her from my driveway! 

Third….totally forgot it was trash day! Lol Anyway~~so I get a text from the kid asking if he can go to a friend’s house after school. I say fine. (He gets bored because we don’t have internet or cable right now and only has so much data on his phone his daddy gave him)(friend’s house is down the street and has Wi-Fi) So this being said I honestly didn’t think I would see him til later, figuring he would head straight to said friend’s house. I decided that if I started it now I could have him some BBQ Crock-Pot chicken done by the time he came home later this evening. So I was in the kitchen when he came home.Neeeless to say I didn’t think about the fact that he would want to bring his junk home first. 

 so here is my after his first day of 10th grade picture of my kiddo. This look he is giving me is ….well not good. Sad to say he came home with a headache and I ambushed him to get a picture so momma made it worse. And yes before I am asked, we offered to buy him a new backpack for this year and he declined the offer. I offered again not 10 minutes ago. Still said no. Side note, still winning in the momma column…see the purple ear buds? My bluetooth head phone cause his stopped working.  So anyway~~hope y’all’s kiddos all had a good day. 

Love, prayers, and blessings! 

PS ~~ chicken is easy….throw in chicken, BBQ sauce, honey,and brown sugar and let it go on high for 4 hours. Comes out great every time and can be thrown in the pot with one hand. 

Day 5 for real

For the first time since January I made my spaghetti. Now don’t get me wrong, I TOTALLY had help. My son, my amazing kid, helped me. We have both been craving my spaghetti and it was supposed to get made last night. Instead I made it around 8:30pm tonight when the kiddo got home from getting a few school supplies with his daddy. So with his help I made it. ..and it mostly turned out like normal…. For the most part at any rate. Too much of this, and not enough of that ….doing things with the wrong hand suck…

This is my hand that does NOTHING these days…

This is the very messy pony tail that my SON had to put up for me because I can’t even do that myself. I realize that things could be a lot worse and I could be a lot worse and there are others who DO have it worse than me….but sometimes, sonetimes it really gets to me. My ex left in 2011 and even sometimes before that I felt like I was on my own. I was the one taking care of things and getting things done. So this….this not being able to even be close to normal….it really sucks and Sometimes it really gets to me. I understand this is probably my new normal and am trying to learn to live with it. 

Anyway~~hope y’all are doing better than me~~ 

Love, prayers, and blessings,
