Funny Text Convo with my mom and sisters – Every single one of us kids had to go thru it…sitting down to do homework with Pops… UGH! It was the worst! My step-dad aka Pops – is an extremely intelligent man. Not only did he achieve many degrees – he did so after his father passed away when he was only 16. Pops worked his butt off to support his mother and sister.
Anyway – Pops is the go to for math and science – mom more so for English and spelling – and now the twins who are 15 – are experiencing the “homework sessions with pops”. Mom sent video of Nico absolutely HATING life and algebra. The text convo –
Alyson aka Sis or Sissy : Poor Nico!!! J
Caty: Brings back memories
Abby: Horrible memories
Caty: I like that you are drinking mom (in the video)
Mom: Everybody grab a bottle – we will have fun.
Mom: You all had to go through it!! LOL
Caty: I’m an algebraic professional if he needs help.
Mom: Thanks we may all you sometime
Me: Puhleeeze Caty
Caty: Haha #speakonlythetruth #mba #smarterthaneveryone
Mom: What does # mean?
Caty: Oh mother…..that’s for another day.
I was beyond nervous to get up in front of everyone and kick a dang football thru the goal posts.
I knew I wasn’t going to make it – with only 2 hours of “practice” I SHOULDN’T be able to make the kick…I wanted to practice with that guy again but yea…noo.
I decided to lay down for an hour or two before I had to go – and my ex woke me up 7 mins before 7…CRAP!!
I pulled myself together and ran over to Waterloo – I ran over to the practice field and tried to warm up – Brando texted and I ran over to find him.
I couldn’t breathe or stand still – I couldn’t practice because I didn’t have a football and then next thing that I knew – Brando was walking me onto the track INFRONT OF EVERYONE ALREADY. I was not prepared for that.
We stood there awkwardly until the half and watched as scrawny teens struggled to move big drums – I got maybe 2 or 3 kicks into this little net INFRONT OF EVERYONE…before it was time to walk over to the goal thingy.
This HS Football Player – Graham came over to hold the football for me. GREAT – not only am I going to miss – but Graham hopes I “don’t kick off my finger”. FREAKING GREAT – Lets ruin the hands of our listeners children…
The other team was already ready to take the field – and they were coming on the turf – I thought I would get more than one try – but I guess not. They were sweet tho – yelling encouragement.
I could barely hear what Brando was saying over the pounding in my ears. I heard the “disclaimer and bet” – and everyone cheered for some reason….
I know I closed my eyes for the kick – and I opened them to watch the ball skip thru the bottom part…. I put my head down and started running for the exit and then realized that Brando’s very prego sister was walking off the field behind me (she videoed for us) – I stopped and walked with her.
On the way thru – I wouldn’t look at the crowd – too embarrassed. Even though I tried to run away some people wanted to take pictures with us – it was the cheerleaders. They were super cute. I really wish I had a bow like theirs.
It all got over waay later than I thought it would.
I tried to sleep in – but lately I have been waking up at midnight. It “feels” different at midnight and I always know I’m up too early – because I know I didn’t sleep long enough.
It was a gorgeous day – so I took Gia out to run around outside then did laundry.
Scary Remote in Fenton – Always a good time – I love doing haunted house events – people are usually in a great mood and are having fun.
In previous years, Fenton was always the most interesting – watching couples taking turns take swigs outta fifths of captain with their toddlers in the backseat of their 2 door car – while someone holds their spot in line…
This year the entire set up was different – I know they always try to amp it up.
I got done with the event and drove home and realized how late it was.
Sunday – I got up and ran to the store and bought myself 2 bavarian crème donuts. It was going to be that kind of day. I was supposed to go to the Ren faire but I was not feeling it or the “jumping thru hoops” you had to do to bring your dog along.
Instead I got ahold of a dog friend and went out to the woods.
She was telling me how happy she is with her BF – they are moving in together and she is leaving me.
I was happy and sad for her at the same time.
I am continuing my house search – I was super depressed about not finding a spot yet. I just wish I had ALL of the answers so that I could make the right decisions and not regret anything – I think that I made the right decision about not taking the Bridgeton rental – but I need to make more decisions like: new car – this has gotten further complicated after reading a car and driver article comparing the Mazda CX3 to the CX5 – they said that if you are going for the AWD in the CX3, you might as well get the CX5 – it is bigger and very similar in gas mileage and price.
Decision like – buying or renting a house – I know I don’t have the capital to put down on a house but I could plan for it better?
I don’t know who was in our office but someone Jacked Up my Chair
