I am sitting down today and making my summer goals list. I've been kinda goal-less for the past week and I don't like it.
Lucy May still is suffering with her abscess. This thing is super expensive. And time consuming and her booty itches. Poor girl. We go back tomorrow to get yet another pricey laser treatment.
Brie is getting an ultrasound soon. I have to know what's going on. She's miserable and I need answers. It's expensive but necessary I think.
Hagrid pooped on Atticus when we took him to the vet to learn how to trim his nails. That's right. Our dragon got a mani pedi but I don't get one. What a life he has! Also, he has discovered that he likes to ride.
That's a fancy car for someone who doesn't work!
I'm in this summer challenge thing and it's so tedious. I love the team pride and the ladies in the team, but those challenges are so lengthy. It gets on my nerves rather than inspire me.
I have been creating a lot and reading. I still have a good amount of burning and stinging in my hands and neck. It's not as bad but it's certainly there.
My mom is really slipping in her memory. It's so sad to me. She and I have a tense relationship at times but I've learned what to avoid discussing with her. She and I talk about everything though and I am starting to grieve those conversations. She can remember somethings so clearly and others she repeats multiple times in one convo. It's so sad to me.
I do have one rant. Pardon me. I tried a new combo of beauty product from IT Cosmetics. They have wonderful - and I mean wonderful brushes - but everything else I have tried is pure garbage. I hated the foundation and the neck cream was gross. It smelled so good but was orange and went on that way. After a while it peeled off in orange globs. YUCK. I threw it all away. What a disappointment.
I found a cheapie mascara that is really awesome from Ulta. It's their brand in a shiny pink tube and it's amazing. I am thrilled with that.
I have been making some new recipes again. I feel like myself when I do that.
Last night I opened up my pork chops and they had spoiled!!! I was so angry!!!! We ate BLT's instead. I love BLT's but that isn't what I planned on. What a waste.
I did find that while my mom or dad rambles and complains on the phone, that I can get my nails done. I put them on speaker and put on my Jamberries. Cool! I was able to chime in (not so much with dad, he talked a mile and minute) and I got that mani in. Yay!
I am most angry about being fat. Still. I am hitting the treadmill here soon. I am going to get up early and start that first thing. I am tired of being the same shape and Slimer from Ghostbusters.
My oldest son, Caleb, is learning that job hunting is not fun. He has no desire to work right now, which bothers me. He is 17 tho, and needs to get on the ball. He is so slow moving. He hasn't even really decided about college. UGH. That's stressful for me. I have to push and nag and I hate being that person but OMG he needs to move on this.
Atticus had a crappy report card. What bothered me the most is that he didn't seem upset about it. He knows I am not happy but wow, he seemed fine with it. Next year I am checking everyday on his grades. He is not going to like the Gestapo called Mom.
