I don’t know about you but this has been a very draining week for me. I think part of it is that I am getting over a cold, or thought I was getting over it. You know me…once I feel better I stop with the extra rest. Last night my ear was itching pretty good and then I fell asleep in the bath tub which is a normal thing for me. I woke up this morning dizzy as hell. I was almost all the way ready to venture out on Black Friday at 7am and then the nausea hit. There was no way I was standing in any line feeling like that. I am thinking inner ear infection? Maybe? I feel better now unless I bend over and then it hits me all over again. I have something I want to try later…I will let you know.
The girl and I did head out after 11am today. Sadly we missed the dog biscuits at Pet Smart….they still had the kitty litter so I guess there’s that. Our next stop was Office Max and thankfully they still had what I wanted. Check this deal out…..$39.00 for the printer and yes I did opt for the $4.95 two year warranty which I don’t normally do….and then tomorrow I will have $30.00 in rewards. There was a survey on the bottom of the receipt for 10 off of 50. Here is my evil plan….tomorrow I will go back and purchase replacement ink cartridges and they are $25.00 a piece. I will grab one black and one color and I will be at $50.00…..factor in my 10.00 coupon and add my $30.00 rewards and I will get the ink for $10.00. So I will have a new printer and a back up of ink all for $49.00. I think it’s a pretty good deal. Now the girl can’t print at home again. I am out of ink and didn’t want to spend the money to replace ink on a printer that was outdated.
We went to Michael’s because I needed ribbon for trees and then we went to breakfast. It was one o’clock but we still ordered breakfast. We weren’t out very long, just long enough for me to become disgusted with people. It’s pretty bad when a “people person” is tired of people.
I worked my last Thanksgiving yesterday. The owner isn’t doing well. Experimental treatment or not….stage 4 is still stage 4. Poor guy. The restaurant is now up for sale, whether it sells or closes I will be done. I did really well yesterday, it was my best Thanksgiving to date. I only had two tables of nasty people, everyone else was very nice.
Chocolate mousse with a cookie spoon. It really is tasty only yesterday, I couldn’t eat it all. I don’t know if it’s because I have been cutting back on sugar? I don’t know why but it was sad to toss it in the garbage. You would be amazed at the food we throw away on Thanksgiving. People with eyes that are bigger than their stomach…whole pieces of chicken and ham and turkey…there is so much waste.
I was surprised at the child drama that was happening there now, it’s bad. There is a girl who I determined this summer was a liar. This girl lies all the time and now she is messing with the kid manager who is 18 or 19 and this girl is 15. She was complaining about being hungover from her drinking binge the night before. There’s the perfect recipe for a teenage pregnancy. I almost took her out for scooping ice with a glass and she did it again after I yelled at her. I have worked through the nightmare of a broken glass in the ice bin in the middle of a rush…it’s not pretty. I don’t like her to begin with…..it’s a good thing that I really don’t work there anymore.
Wednesday was a pretty good day. I picked up my new business cards and that was super exciting. The custom frame for the boy was done so I went to Hobby Lobby to pick it up. I didn’t love the frame when the boy picked it but it did turn out very nice.
Tuesday was the hardest day this week for me. Maybe it’s the getting older thing? Some days are harder without my mom and this in one of them. People try though…the OD from work brought donuts for my birthday and I grabbed a cinnamon roll.
It was tasty and it was huge, I ate about a quarter of it. When did I get so sensitive to sugar? It was a nice thought and I brought the leftovers home on Wednesday….the kids didn’t have any problems finishing them off.
Now I am cooking my turkey….the kids don’t care that it’s the next day. Once we eat I and I gather all of the leftovers, I am going to try and make a broth from the carcass. This is an experiment for me so fingers crossed. I hope you all enjoyed your turkey day….Zia
