Today I had to do one of my least favorite things in life......go to the dentist! Luckily, it was just for my 6 month cleaning. I was worried she would find something wrong because one of my teeth has been a little sensitive to cold the last few weeks. I had already prepared myself to be ready to go back and pay hundreds of dollars for some intense dental surgery, but everything was fine. She even told me I had beautiful teeth, which was a bit of an exaggeration in my opinion. They are all there and healthy but definitely not beautiful. I had really wanted to get to this appt on time for a change, but as usual I didn't make it out of the house on time and was about 10 min late. I don't know why I have such a problem with being on time for things. Anyway, after the dentist I went to work for the rest of the day. Jo and I ate our dinner outside picnic style. It was fun to sit outside and enjoy good food and beautiful weather. Today was a good day.
The weather was absolutely beautiful this wknd, so I decided that Jo and I deserved to do something a little fun and different for a change, so on Saturday we were off to the Greenville zoo in SC. The morning started off with drama as usual. Ben and I were kind of having a fight via text message over night, so I was already not in the best mood. Jo got up around 8 or 9 and came in my room. I had told her the night before that we couldn't go anywhere until our house was cleaned up. So instead of offering to help me clean or go ahead and start getting read, all she did was worry about where her Nintendo DS plug was and playing video games. That really pissed me off so we were not off to a good start but I was determined to have a good day. So i got up, took a shower, washed and dried my hair, got dressed and started cleaning. I had to threaten Jo with not going anywhere for her to put down the video game and help. About 2 hrs later we were finally ready to go after we ate a cantaloupe for breakfast. The first stop was Big Lots so I could pick up a car charger for my phone and some snacks and drinks for the car ride. Then I had to get some gas and then finally we got on the road. It was a fun ride, we talked and ate and listened to music and the GPS. I don't think we got into one argument. About an hr and a half later we arrived at the zoo, the hardest part was finding a parking spot. After driving around for about 20 min, I finally found a spot about 2 miles from the zoo. Anyway, we parked and got in line and about 30 min later we were in the zoo! After stopping by the bathroom which Jo described as "disgusting" (it wasn't) we were off to see animals! After about 1 1/2 hrs of animal watching we were both pretty hungry and thirsty, so we headed to the snack bar and a meltdown. She couldn't figure out what to eat and started whining about American Cheese and saying she wasn't going to eat anything. I finally talked her into getting a chicken sandwich and I got a couple of corn dogs. It was OK food, definitely not the best. But I think we both felt better after eating and drinking and so it was off to see more animals. About 2 hrs later we had seen everything there was to see and I decided that Jo's behavior deserved a trip to the gift shop. She got a orangutan that she can wrap around herself and i got a magnet with Lemurs to add to my magnet collection. After letting her play on the playground for another hr or so I was ready to go. I was hungry and tired and my head was starting to hurt. I got a little turned around trying to get back to the highway but thanks to my GPS i figured it out without too much trouble. We stopped at Golden Corral for dinner on the way back, and then Jo slept pretty much all the way back home. My head was busting by the time we got to the house and I took some Advil as soon as we got inside. We laid on my bed together and watched TV and looked at the pictures of our trip we both took on our cameras. It was an awesome day and made me think that Jo and I should take a day trip somewhere once a month until it gets cold again . I'm not sure where the road will take us next......
My parents kind of dissed me this Easter to go to the beach and my brother went out of town for the ending of his month long birthday celebration, so that left me and Jo to celebrate our first Easter at our house alone. I think it turned out pretty good. Yesterday, we went to an Easter festival downtown complete with inflatables, games, prizes, art, glitter tattoos and of course an egg hunt and the Easter Bunny. Things started off a little strange with Jo. I think she was overwhelmed with all the activity and people and options. She was probably a little hungry too because we didn't eat lunch assuming there would be food there. There wasn't really, but after eating some popcorn and drinking a bottle of water she seemed much better. She eventually did all the inflatables, painted on the art wall, played a game where she won a sucker and temporary tattoo. Then it was time for the egg hunt. She found a lot of eggs, but unfortunately most of them had chocolate in them which she does not like. She did not want to sit on the Easter Bunny's lap, like me, she is afraid of people dressed up as characters. We went home to grab some lunch and lay down for a bit before going to the Globetrotter game. The game was amazing!! We had so much fun and laughed so hard. The pla
So yesterday I thought my doc was off and so I didn't go in to work. I was wrong! I got a text from my friend saying he was working the morning shift. I jumped up and texted back that I was getting ready right then and would be there as soon as I could. Just as I was getting in the shower I got another text saying someone was there and her doc didn't come in and she would just stay and work for me. I felt so stupid and was worried that I was going to get fired. It kind of ruined my whole day and I was in a bad mood until I got to work today and found out that I wasn't in trouble. But back to yesterday, after I dropped Jo off, I came home and took a nap, but it was not a very restful sleep. I had some bad dreams and woke up feeling even worse. I think it was because I felt so bad about missing work. I did manage to order our Harlem Globetrotter tickets for Saturday online and then I went to Target to pick some Easter Bunny presents up for Jo. Then it was time to pick her up. I made a pizza for dinner and then we played Monopoly Jr. This week is Spring Break, so it has been nice to have a break from homework .
I went to work today prepared to be yelled at or fired or wrote up or something, but nothing happened except my friends teased me all day long. At least I still have a job, but I will NEVER do that again. Since we are going to the Globetrotter game tomorrow, we just went to McDonald's tonight to save money. We came home, ate, and then played balloons, Lego's and colored. It was actually a fun evening with no yelling, whining or crying. And she actually was ready to go to bed when it was time. I'm super excited about seeing the Globetrotters tomorrow, but I cant help but to think how much more fun it would be if Tony and I were still together and we were all going. Oh well, I'm sure Jo and I will have a great time by ourselves.
Today was a pretty good day. Work was fun and the doc I called by his first name didn't seem to be mad or even thinking about yesterday. After work, we came home and Jo had like four packages on the porch. My mom sent her some new dresses and a hello Kitty t-shirt for summer. She was really excited about that. I got nothing. We had planned on going to Olive Garden for dinner and as part of my new reality series lifestyle, I changed out of my work scrubs into a cute (in my opinion) outfit. Normally I would have just kept my work clothes on. But while I was changing I got a really bad feeling about Olive Garden and me running into dumbass or his mom, so we decided to go to the mall instead. We ate at Chic-Fil-A and then went looking for Hello Kitty curtains. We didn't find any, but I did find a fabulous purple jacket marked down to 20 bucks and several pairs of earrings that were but one get one 50% off. I was happy about my purchases. I am just going to order her curtains online. My Tarheels won their opening game in the NCAA tournament tonight and that was a great way to end the day. Now hoping for Kansas to go down to Western Kentucky.
Not much has been going on lately. Really busy with work and dance and Jo. Work has been crazy, we have been down a nurse for the last 3 weeks and this week our lab person has been out. We have all been working on our days off, which i don't mind because that gives me extra money in my paycheck. The down nurse is supposed to come back week after next, but we all have serious doubts as to if that will happen. Jo's room redecoration is coming along nicely. She has kept it really clean since I cleaned it out. She now has Hello Kitty bedspreads, a rug, and a clock. Tomorrow we are going to get some Hello Kitty curtains and a nice curtain rod. I have never hung a curtain rod before, so I hope I can do it. I have nobody to help so I guess I have no choice but to do it. I'm also going to order a new rug to go in front of my front door to match the new area rug in the living room I got a few weeks ago. I'm really excited about the changes I'm making to my home. Jo has been doing much better lately with her behavior and listening and not talking back. We have been having a much better time together recently. I also decided just last night to start living life like a reality TV star. Not the partying and drinking and dating part, but just trying to always look my best and eat right and have fun and try new things and be happy and enjoy life. Today was day one of that and it went pretty well. I did have one embarrassing moment today when I called one of the docs by his first name thinking he was in a different part of the office, but then I turned around and saw him standing there and I thought I was going to die. Hopefully he didn't hear me, but I think he did. I hope I don't get in trouble for that. Just to make up for my slip of the tongue, I made sure to call him Dr. for the rest of the day, every time I saw him. I'm halfway thorough the second round of 40 days of abs and I'm feeling so much stronger. I'm also adding some butt burning exercises to it. That seems like something a reality TV star would do. We will see how day 2 goes. Tomorrow is pay day and my account is still in the positive and all my bills are paid! I'm super excited about that. Reality stars are never broke. Things are finally looking good for me!
So I think I jinxed myself after that last blog I wrote.. The following morning, she was back to whining and crying and talking back simply because I asked her to wear a different coat that was easier to zip and had a hood. It was the beginning of the end of the good behavior. As far as I know, she didn't get in trouble at school and we had a pretty good time eating dinner at a new Mexican restaurant and then shoe shopping. I actually found 2 pairs of shoes for myself. I rarely buy myself anything, but I desperately needed some shoes for work. i have been wearing the same ones for well over a year. I was really excited about my new shoes. I'm sure it will be a year before I get some more. So on Saturday, I had planned on going to the scrub store, the grocery store, spending some time outside and then end the day going to the movies with Jo. That did not happen. Again she was back to whining and crying and not doing what she was told. It was so bad, and took so long to get out of the house, I canceled the scrub store. Then due to her behavior and the return of her smarty pantsness, I told her the movie was off today. Then she kept begging for one more chance, but I said no because she had already behaved badly. I did go to the grocery store because we needed food. And I did wash the car and cleaned out the inside, with no help. Although she didn't really deserve it, I let Jo ride her scooter when I was done and then played badminton with her.
Sunday was better, at least a little. I had improv class and rehearsal. I couldn't find my knee brace so I had to dance all day without it and my knee has been really sore and slightly painful since then. I didn't get to show my solo because we ran out of time, which was fine with me. I lost my excitement about doing it. Jo was OK at rehearsal, except for crunching her chips too loud on purpose and falling over for no reason because she was doing something weird. We came home, i made some dinner, we ate, and it was bedtime pretty soon. After she went to sleep, I finally cleaned my kitchen after weeks of procrastination. I couldn't sleep that night though and was up until about 5:30 am. Luckily I was off today. So i pretty much did nothing but take Jo to school, sleep and watch TV. It was a good day until I went and picked her up and the after school counselor told me some older boys were talking about having sex and then Jo started telling people that bunny ears means you get up at 2 am to have sex. Apparently a lot of the kids at her school have been talking about that, but she was the only one without enough sense to keep it quiet and get busted. I was so embarrassed when that teacher told me that. As soon as we got in the car I told her to stop listening to her friends because they don't know anything and will get her to say things just to get her in trouble and they do not always tell the truth. I asked her if she even knew what she said meant and she said no. So then I asked her why she would go around saying things if she doesn't even know what shes talking about it. She said she just couldn't hold it in. I told her I was disappointed in her and that she shouldn't repeat everything she hears. I also told her not to go around saying things she doesn't know what it means. And if she hears something she doesn't understand, either ask a teacher in private or me because the kids at school don't know anything either. I'm glad today is over, but I'm sure something else bad will happen tomorrow.
This has been quite an interesting week. Most impressive is the fact that Jo has not cried or whined or acted up in 4 days. That is a record! I don't even remember when the last time was we had a streak so long. I think the main reason things are getting better is because for the last week or so I have made her go to bed at 9:30 or 10 at the very latest when we get home late. I used to try and give her a choice and let her go to sleep when she felt she was sleepy, but that kept getting later and later and her behavior was getting worse and worse. I have really enjoyed her the last 4 days. I'm going to keep this new bedtime going even on week-ends and during the summer. On Tuesday, she left her backpack at after school when she left for swimming lessons on the bus. Unfortunately, her sweater and underwear and homework were all in there. So we couldn't go to dance class because she didn't have anything to put on after she took her bathing suit off and she needed her homework. So we drove back to the school to meet the bus dropping other kids off hoping a teacher would have the key. She did not have the key and by then it was even too late for me to take class, so we just went home. Jo really lucked out because it snowed that night and there was no school on Wed, but snow care was open. She was able to go to snow care and get her backpack and do her previous nights homework that night. She was so lucky! Things never work out that good for me. There is more drama at work this week. A co-worker who has been calling in a lot the last 3 weeks for bullshit reasons had her mother come into the office and tell the office manager she needed to take a week off for medical problems and doctors visits. I don't know what else they talked about, nut she was in there for about 30 minutes. I would have been so embarrassed for my mother to come to my job and tell them I needed to be off. It didn't seem to bother her though. And for the last 2 days, this person has been on facebook a lot. It doesn't seem like shes at the doctor or feeling terrible. I don't know whats going on. We probably never will. Everybody kind of doubts if she will even come back when her week is done. I'm not letting it stress me out, I have plenty of my own problems to deal with. Glad tomorrow is Friday and payday!
Jo and I both slept late this morning and stayed in the bed eating Honey Nut Cheerios and watching The Lorax.. It was actually a very nice enjoyable morning until it was time to get ready to go to the studio. Then came the whining and crying and not listening and standing around acting like she didn't know how to get ready. All because she wanted to keep watching TV and stay home by herself. Neither one of those things were going to happen. Because of Jo I was 15 minutes late for class. I was soooo mad at her. She has a birthday party she wants to go to in a couple of weeks, maybe if I give her a taste of her own medicine, she will change her ways a little. Anyway, the part of class i got to do and rehearsal were both really good tonight. I felt like I danced really well, Jo said I looked awesome. Next Sunday I have to show my solo and the duet I'm working on. I used to hate showing work, but I'm really excited about it. After rehearsal, we picked up some seafood and came home. Jo only ate part of hers before saying her stomach hurt. I don't know if that's true or if she just didn't like it. She seems to like less and less foods here lately. Either way she can eat it for dinner tomorrow.
I was expecting to spend the day taking care of a sick child today, but she seemed to have made a miraculous recovery overnight. She was totally fine today except when I asked her to do something. Then her head would start hurting or her stomach ached, Very convenient symptoms.I cant help but wonder if she was faking yesterday to get out of school. Maybe she figured out how to make herself throw up on purpose. I guess there's no way to really know. I was hoping to get some snow today, but we didn't. It was cold, so we stayed in all day, except for a few minutes walking outside to get the mail. I was hoping for a package and I got it. I spent most of the day cleaning, washing clothes and cooking. I didn't finish the kitchen but by 9:30 I couldn't clean another thing. Ill finish that and jo's bathroom tomorrow before dance. Jo's room looks so different now than it did when Tony and TJ were in our lives. Hopefully that will get rid of a lot of the memories in there. Eventually I want to redo my whole house. I have been working on it since the beginning of last year, its taking awhile, but I want to replace everything. I wish I had the money to just get a new house somewhere else, but unless I win the lottery, that will not be happening.
Its been awhile since I posted. We have been sooooo busy, the last few weeks. Dance class, dance rehearsals, swimming lessons, shows to see, homework to do, meals to cook, cleaning out Jo's room, it has been insane. I got a message from Jo's teacher at the end of last week saying she ha been over emotional, and whiny at school. This is totally not like her so I figured it was because she was overly tired and not getting enough sleep at night. So this week, she has been going to bed at 9:30 on most nights, 10 if we get home late an she has done much better, I think. I'm going to send a follow up e-mail to her teacher on Monday, just to touch ba
My head still hurt today. It was even worse so I don't think it had anything to do with the beer. I had planned on getting up and cleaning my house before dance, but that did not happen, In fact, I didn't do anything until about 1:00 when i made some food hoping that would make me feel better. It didn't. I felt so bad, I didn't go to improv class. I did go to rehearsal, but I ended up sitting out and just watching. I really hate missing class and rehearsal. After that, we just went back home and just chilled out. I hate headaches.
I sure did pay for drinking all that beer last night. I woke up with a terrible headache. Or it could have just been a coincidence. I haven't slept t well all week and have had a lot on my mind. Regardless of where it came from this was a bad headache. We didn't have to get up early, which was good. I told my friend Jo and I would come to her granddaughters birthday party today, so I did have to go to that. I loaded up on ibuprofen and got ready for the party. First we had to go to Wal-Fart and pick up a present. I had no idea what to get so it took awhile. Jo wasn't much help, she just looked at things she wanted. After finally deciding on something, we were ready to go to the party. I wasn't exactly sure where the place was so I put the address in my GPS and followed the directions. Unfortunately, it took me to the totally wrong place. I had no clue where I was, so I just kept driving until I recognized something. We ended up being about 10 minutes from my house. I was almost out of gas at this point, so I had to stop at a gas station. I decided to put in the address in a different navigator and luckily it led me to exactly the right place. We were about an hour late, but at least we made it. The birthday party was fun. There was pizza and chicken and cake. Jo found a little girl close to her age to play with. We stayed for about 2 hours. When Jo started to act like she was going to start acting crazy, it was time to go. After leaving the party, we went to Kohl's. I found Jo a couple of pairs of boots and me some new underwear, which I desperately needed. It started to snow pretty hard, so I stopped by Chic-Fil-A and grabbed some dinner and then we went home. I really needed to do some cleaning buy my head was pounding at this point, so instead we watched some movies and then went to bed. I have a lot to do tomorrow, I hope I feel better!
Friday! It was a pretty uneventful day. Work was OK, the day went by pretty fast. Jo went to her first kids night out at the Y. She was so excited to stay out until 10 playing with her friends, eating pizza and watching a movie. I was excited to have 4 hrs on a Friday night to myself. I wasn't sure what to do. At first I thought maybe I would hang out with a couple of friends, but I never got around to calling them. Then I was going to go see a show one of my friends is in this wknd, but the 7:30 show was sold out. The I thought about going to a movie, but I couldn't' find where the one I wanted to see was playing. So I ended up spending the evening at home alone. I didn't' do anything but watch some TV and snack and sleep. I really enjoyed that. It was time to pick up Jo before I knew it. When I got there, she was leaning against the wall looking like she was about to pass out. She had to be tired after being at school all day, after school and then that. She said her stomach hurt and she didn't feel good and was going to go to bed as soon as we got home. But she had a miraculous recovery and stayed up for about another hour. She said she felt better when she got home with me and that she missed me. That was sweet, sometimes I wonder if she really cares about me or if I'm just a cook, maid and chauffeur to her. We bumps heads a lot, but it seems that she does love me, at least for now. I have a feeling things will change when she becomes a teenager. After she finally went to sleep, I treated myself to about 4 beers before going to bed. I got a little drunk, which was fun, but it would have been better if I had someone here to be silly with. I tried texting Ben, but he didn't answer me. Maybe this time next year things will be different.
Booooo, Valentines Day! I hate Valentines because its just another reminder of how I lost the love of my life. 2 Valentines ago he sent me a dozen red roses to my office for Valentines, took me to the Biltmore Estate and gave me a beautiful heart shaped diamond necklace. Now, he doesn't even talk to me. All because of my big mouth. That was the first and only Valentines day that I have ever received anything. It never really bothered me before him because I never expected anything or knew what it was like to celebrate Valentines. Now its just a painful reminder of what I will never have again. I hated watching other people get flowers, and candy and other things delivered to them at work today, while I felt like the biggest loser there. Jo made me a bowl at school for Valentines and a couple of my friends texted me Happy Valentines, but that was only after I texted them first. It was a really sucky day. After work, things got a little better. I had to perform a solo from our upcoming show at the Y for a fundraiser for domestic violence. I had been worried about it all day long and had a horrible feeling that something was going to go horribly wrong. Luckily it didn't. We performed in a gym and the audience was seated on the floor in a circle, so there wasn't' much room to dance, but I did the best I could. After my performance, I felt like I had done a horrible job and like it was absolutely terrible, but lots of people came up to me and told me it was beautiful and how much they loved it and thanked me for my performance. So I guess it was OK. I didn't like how people kept looking at me before I went on or even just walking into the bathroom or down the hall. I bet they were thinking how ugly i am. I cant help being ugly, so I wish people wouldn't look at me so hard all the time. I guess they just are not used to seeing someone that looks like me. Sometimes I wish I could just disappear from the face of the earth. I was just glad to go to bed and get another Valentines Day over with.
No school today because of a teacher work day. It was also my day off, so I was looking forward to sleeping late and enjoying a nice breakfast with Jo before we left for the day. She had other plans. She got up really early and immediately started saying she was ready to go to schools out. I told her it wasn't time to get up and i was going back to sleep. She chose to get up and take a shower and get dressed. Her idea of getting dressed was a bathing suit and cover up and sock and sneakers. I told her she was not wearing that and she started whining and crying about it. She then went and changed in to an outfit that was too small and didn't match. I made her change again and she found another outfit that didn't fit. I told her if that's what she wanted to look like, go ahead and wear it. Then she said she was ready for me to drop her off. I told her it was still to early and so she started the crying whining mess again. I took my time getting up and ready and she went and got her scooter and said she would take herself. I told her she hadn't had breakfast yet and she said she wasn't hungry and more crying. She didn't have a lunch or towel or underwear to put on after swimming. Her hair wasn't brushed or anything. All she did was cry about wanting to go. I think she got up too early. Anyway I finally dropped her off and then I came back home for a little while before going to work. I only went in to do paperwork and left around 4:30. We had rehearsal for the piece we are in together tonight and it was really good. I think this may turn out to be a good piece after all. I worked with her on some of the things she was having problems with and it really showed she did good. She was in a much better mood than this morning. After rehearsal we went to Wal-fart and picked some things up for Valentines Day and then to Burger King. I was in a hurry to get home because Carolina and Duke were playing. It was a good first half but I don't know what happened to my heels in the 2nd half, they completely fell apart. I turned the game off before it was over because I was so disappointed. There was a lot of stuff I needed o do before bed for tomorrow, but I did none because I was so tired. I told myself I would get up at 6 and get everything done.
I got called in to work again this am. I need the hours but it sure would have been nice to sleep in. Nothing remarkable at work today. Jo started swimming lessons today. I was really nervous about getting her from swimming to dance class without her being horribly late. Swimming ends at 6 and dance starts at 6. Luckily they are only about 5 min apart. We made it there by 6:15, it could have been earlier, but first Jo couldn't find her clothes and then she couldn't find her underwear. We found her clothes and her underwear were still on under her bathing suit. LOL I dint know how she did that one. She only missed a little bit of dance class because they always start a little late. Unfortunately she had to dance with wet underwear. I took class tonight as well. It was really good, we had some new material to work with and I feel like I did well with it. After dance we came home an I made some guacamole from scratch for dinner. I'm really getting into making things from scratch. Ben asked me for money yet again tonight. I knew when he texted me Good morning first thing this morning, he was going to ask for something before the day was over.
I am rounder this week at work so I didnt have to be in first thing in the morning. Normally I would take advantage of this by taking a nap after dropping Jo off at school, but after spending so much Friday, I need all the hours I can get. So after watching 1 episode of Toddlers and Tiaras and breakfast, I left for work around 9. During lunch we had a dental varnishing in-service. It was pretty boring, but at least we got a free catered lunch. And now I am re certified to paint fluoride varnish on the teeth of children 3 and under. It wasn't that busy today, but somehow we were almost 2 hrs behind when I left at 5:30. While I was at work this afternoon, I got a text message from After-school saying Jo had fell and hit her head while playing tag and that she was fine. Since they said she was OK I didn't leave early or call or anything. Knowing Jo, she was probably faking or exaggerating or putting on "show" for everybody. When I picked her up she looked and seemed totally fine, so I didn't make a big deal out of it. I asked if she had a headache and she said no. I went to find the YWCA Ill be performing at on Thursday. I'm glad I figured it out tonight, because it was in the total opposite direction that I thought it was. That gives me one less thing to worry about, I guess. After that, we came home for dinner, I dint know why, but Jo didn't really eat much tonight, which is not like her. Maybe it was from hitting her head, or because she stayed up til almost midnight last night and was up at 6:30 this am and was really sleepy. We had lasagna, salad and garlic bread, all things I thought she liked, maybe this week she doesn't like any of that anymore. She will eat when she gets hungry enough. Even though she didn't really deserve it, I ordered 2 magazine subsc
Another big dance day! After staying up so late last night, I didn't get up until around 10:30. I decided that Sunday will be our morning muffin tradition so I made cranberry orange muffins today. Of course Jo didn't like them because she doesn't like anything hardly. More for me! After brunch, I took a shower and washed my hair, and started getting ready for rehearsal early, so I wouldn't't have to rush later. I was hoping she would do the same, but of course she didn't't and we ended up being late anyway. Or so I thought. Last I heard we were supposed rehearse the piece we are performing Thursday at 2:30, but it had been changed to 3:30 so we were actually early for a change. I took the first 30 min of improv class and then rehearsed. I think this piece is going to be really great, especially with live musicians. I am excited to do it, but I cant shake the feeling that something is going to go wrong. Anyway, when that was done I went back to improv class and then we had company rehearsal until 7:30. Lots of good work today. I'm really tired and my whole body is sore, but I feel good (as good as I can considering all the other stuff I have to deal with)
Dance rehearsal this morning and we finished the duet! No we have the next few months to fix it, clean it, and make it perfect! After rehearsal we went home for a little while and then to the grocery store. It was actually a good trip, Jo didn't act like a baby and was helpful by pushing the buggy and getting things off the shelf. The only thing she asked for was a cucumber, which I got for her. For once, I didn't wait until the last minute and picked up her valentines and whipped cream she has to bring for her class party on Thursday. After Aldi's, we went by Wal-Fart and picked up a few more things. Then back home to put everything up and make dinner. I made sloppy joes from scratch and Jo made a fruit salad! It was a delicious dinner. After cleaning up the kitchen, I decided to try waxing my own eyebrows. I used to have a place to go to get them done, but they closed and I have been too scared to go to a new place. It took me two times but I think I did a good job for my first attempt. Jo made a giant mess by trying to do her nails without any help. I offered to help her, but she wanted to do it herself. It was a disaster. I stayed up late cleaning and doing laundry. Finally went to bed around 3:30.
