I thought I wouldn’t get the chance to post much of anything today, I have been on the run for pretty much the entire day and I felt lucky to keep my brain working for half of it just because I was so so tired.
We had to go to several stores looking to find the oldest some more pants as he has gotten too big for the ones we bought before school started… though it seems to be an issue with one of his meds. With his issues, that was an experience as it usually is, but we all made it through alive.
We also had other shopping to so and then there was getting the oil changed in the car, which actually took less time than the shopping did… Thank you car angel for watching over us… last time took almost two hours.
After that it was dealing with our middle boy and his science experiment he forgot is due tomorrow… Grrr!
Now there are a couple of things…
Last night we went to a little dive we have never been too even though we have been hearing about this place for years. Yes, it was our anniversary dinner, but we both wanted to try the food there. It was every bit as much of a dive as we expected but the food was good…
The reason I mention it at all is the fact I am very uncomfortable going into places such as that. It isn’t much more than a bar which grew into a restaurant, and places like that always ave a large group of regulars who often look poorly on newcomers. As it was, the crowd wasn’t bad and I was able to relax enough to have a decent meal. Something else which helped was we were able to get a table in the front room, which meant I didn’t have to walk into a large group of people. Given how conscience I am of things such as that, I was glad to be able to sit and just blend into the background.
The other was of course being in the store… it’s one of those places where the customers often have no room to criticize anyone… you know, a certain big box store which has a website dedicated to it’s clientele… Still I am too darn self conscience of how I move… I need to do something about it. I really do.
And last of all was this afternoon when I had the chance to watch a girls birthday party celebration. As it happens. I life close enough to a park so that I can see the various parties held there from my porch. Watching all the girls and their parents made me realize how much I would have loved to have had a party like that… a ton of pink and purple crepe streamers, a Little Princess cake and pile of cutely wrapped presents. Then again, I would have liked any party at all… my birthdays were all just family affairs with a few people to witness the festivities… all adults. Even cousins skipped out… loads and loads of fun I promise.
Okay, enough of self pity party… it was all a long time ago.
