Uh ya I did and the guilt made me stronger … Or it killed me … or made me stronger.
Hmmmm, maybe??? Anyhoo. Let’s go shall we?
I earned the time off and my balance of leave time is creeping up there. Up where you ask? Well up there … wherever there is … some place in the stratosphere is my guess. That pending balance must be why time is burning a hole in my pocket just like found money.
Did you ever hear that growing up? Jilly <insert your own name> couldn’t wait to spend her birthday money. That cash from Mamaw <insert your own relative> was burning a hole in her pocket.
Anyhoo, back to today. I left all my errands for this one day to allow myself to enjoy my time off prior to now. And I did! Time with mi familia was very special. #gratitude. The mister and I even had date day :). I know I have every weekend off (spoiled) but again with the selfishness. I wanted to do the crap I saved for today during a regular work day. Even though I genuinely enjoy my job. <gasp> tis true. On most days.
The agenda was boring mundane stuff – sleep past when the alarm would’ve gone off, eat blueberry bagels and cream cheese with coffee (marvel that for a buck 58 plus a buck 89, plus the discount of brewed at home coffee, you have a full five days of eats). Ain’t nuthing funny about that math. Then I left on my trek.
Up first, vehicle inspection at the oil change place (waiting on the oil change as I have 200 miles left and my funny math makes me go until I hit the mileage mark), two tag renewals … my car and the utility trailer, tire inspection and air topped off, grocery store (we will come back to that), home to drop the goods, put up the purchases and eat lunch.
Then back out for RX, fight with doctor’s office (more later) and zip through the car wash (but the wash was broken so the car remains dusty). Back home AGAIN. Bought single cyber Monday gift, sent text to oldest kiddo who is still not doing well (shoe don’t drop, shoe don’t drop, shoe don’t fucking drop!!), paid medical bills, played with then fed the pups, took orange tree photos (from our very OWN tree).
Same tree left side
Same tree right side
Finally capping things off tonight with Book Club!!
In several different posts that will appear unrelated, I will write more about this glorious day later. This blabbering for example while written 11/26/18 is going in the win column for tomorrow to keep the streak alive. If I get creative, I will link the “severals” up in some semblance of order. J-Dub rabbit hole brain order … which means hang on tight … ’bout to git bumpy up in here. Up in where? Up in here! What time is it? Game time! C’mon on y’all yell :).
Ah forget it.
As always, more to come.
