There are not many things that are better than opening up the windows and letting in the fresh air. Tonight there is a bonus breeze! I am grateful that I have central air but my happiest air is the fresh air from Mother Nature.
My neighbor and her grown daughters invited me to go get ice cream tonight. The answer was a huge yes! This is the local place that has the chocolate ice cream I can eat with no reaction, so of course I was in. We pulled in and they all put their mask on. I only put it on because of my respect for my neighbor…we were outside for Pete’s sake. They have it set up where you order and pay in one window and pick up in another. I ordered mine and bought my neighbor’s chocolate pecan cone and then we went on the side while we waited for my name to be called. There was an old man…and I mean old, who was waiting in a social distance from where we were standing. A 30-40 something man was walking away with his cone when the old man said “put your mask on”. The younger man said something like “yes sir” as he walked by. He took the high road. I handed my neighbor her chocolate pecan code and said “I think you’re going to have to take your mask off to eat this.” Yes, I’m a bitch because I purposely said it loud enough for him to hear. Not that he cared…I am only sharing because this is just another example of the world we live in. It all makes me crazy. Maybe I’m right? Maybe I’m wrong? I can only speak for what I believe in.
There is a doctor on vacation this week and that has helped some with me catching up on my paperwork. Some of it…not so much. How do you reconcile when you can’t get anyone on the phone to answer questions? This is why we ditched this lab but I still have to reconcile the statements. Going forward…it won’t matter much to me. Thankfully the new lab is johnny on the spot and their statements make sense and are easy to search and print missing invoices. So much better!
The kids are actually sleeping over their dads for two nights. I had the best night’s sleep last night! The boy wasn’t home to pee at 3am and the bad neighbors were actually quiet. One more night and maybe I will catch up on my sleep while breathing the fresh air. Fingers crossed!
I have a new side hustle brewing…I will let you know when I have something more concrete…finger crossed for now. I made some steps toward this today but nothing is certain.
It has been nice coming home to a clean coffee table,etc. I don’t think the Girl realizes how much she nests in my space. It’s so nice to not see the clutter. It’s always been a struggle with kids…chaos vs order. The kids usually win. For a long time it wasn’t worth the battle but they are older now and I feel like we shouldn’t even be having this conversation….Zia
