Ok, lets see... today has been not so great. I've felt like I've been pulled in a million directions when all I really wanted to do was take a nap or lay on the couch and read.
Dalton had a nose bleed at school today and the nurse was absent, so the secretary calls me all in a panic to come and pick him up. I tried to explain to her that he has nose bleeds a lot and he knows what to do, but she still felt like I should come pick him up. When I got to school he was no where to be found. He had went back to class and was enjoying an ice cream party to celebrate the end of testing. Well, his class didn't test, the older grades did and his teacher helped out, so he had a sub in his class all week. A week wasted if you ask me. He was fine and didn't want to leave until after they had 'break' outside. But, I made him come on home with me anyway. I wasn't about to make another trip back to the school in a little over an hour with gas prices at nearly $4 a gallon and Bailey had to get back home to his work anyway.
I hadn't much more than walked in the door until my sister-in-law called wanting me to come and take pics of her son this afternoon. Tonight was his 8th grade dance. I rolled my eyes, because well she'd rot in hell before she would do anything for me, but doesn't care to ask me to do anything and everything for her. For my nephew's sake, I couldn't say no. So there went my sleep, again. I get down there and my nephew was in a grand mood. Let me tell ya. He didn't want to go to the 'stupid dance' he said. He didn't want to wear those 'stupid clothes' and he didn't want me to take his 'stupid picture'. I had to bite my tongue. Seriously. He was straight up rude and I told him about it. He stood still for about 30 seconds, made a mad face, and left. Ugh. People need to teach their children respect. I'd have made mine stand there, act right, take the pic, and apologize for being a jerk. We even had to miss Bai's home school group's Mystery Dinner in order to try and do something nice for them. But whatever.
Of course, when I was down there, his little brother wanted to come stay all night with Bailey. So now we have company. He just invited himself, and his Mom said it was ok. Was it ok with me? They didn't even bother to ask. I'd never be mean or rude to him, because it isn't his fault his Mom is an idiot. Sorry, I don't usually say those sort of things about people, but you just have to know her and our history. She is awful and can bring out a side of me that I usually don't let out. He has turned the house upside down and went so far as to tell Dalton he hated him. Seriously? What is going on with people today?
After dealing with my sister-in-law I just wanted to eat. I know, emotional eating. I saw it, I knew what I was doing, but I still done it. I didn't let it get too out of hand, but I still done it. Then I felt guilty and almost cried. So I got on the treadmill and walked a mile. Even though I just wanted to lay down and cry.
Michael's truck has been messed up for a couple weeks. It is missing like crazy which is costing us a boat load of money in gas that we don't have. He took it to the auto part place and had it put on a computer. They tell him which part is messed up, he buys it, puts it on, and guess what? It didn't work! The stupid truck is still missing. I could scream. The thing is, you can't take the part back after it had been put on. GAH!
It has just been one of those days.
