Been busy all day, chillin' with DS23, having some guacamole I made earlier, uploading more photos onto my profile. Good ones of granddaughters and a new one of DS and Dog after DS new haircut. DS likes his hair short, both sons do must stem from two parents in military for so long....
Back from doctor for wt and BP monitoring check and to get some Lunesta for when I begin working nights and need to learn to asleep in daytime hours. Now a fight with MEDCO about the prescription....authorization. No, I cannot take Ambien, already discussed that with Doc, so why do I need to jump through paperwork hoops AGAIN!
Beating self up about emotional eating and not watching my hand to mouth disease.....
This weekend we are going to celebrate stepsons birthday as he is not living with us... so we are limited as to which days we can do this.
I must say, his mother bought him a new vehicle 6 months ago and I don't understand why she would do this for a boy who wasn't even old enough to drive, unless its some form of bribery... or to make herself look good.
I feel its foolish, but if she wants to spend her money on foolishness and create a slacker, thats her business as we are moving far, far away soon and he will be her problem that SHE created and will have to deal with.
What we are going to do this weekend, as he is 16, will be his first time to drive over for his visitation
and I plan to get him a novelty cake, perhaps one that looks like a cheeseburger...
My husband bought him a fancy mobile radio from Sams, although I fear his son will say something snobby, like " I have a stero, better than this radio".... and I sure hope he doesn't do that... and I'm sure husband will give him 40-50 dollars too.
I bought him a car emergency kit with jumper cables, fix a flat, etc...
and we are making him his favorite meal, grilled steaks/ french fries.
My husbands kids.... and what he and his family believe is to celelbrate birthdays until age 18 and then just a card. After 18 there is no more gifts or money.
His daughter is already over 18 and she is getting nothing but a card. She has severe emotional and behavioral issues and we just pray she will start to grow up but realize she may remain as is, a creation of her mother ( a snobby bratty but ignorant young woman with a HUGE sense of entitlement--- her mother can deal with that since she created it)
A lot of work for his son of his... as well as expense... I can only hope he appriciates it.
Not feeling super good about this because he has become very snobby since his mother bought him a new truck 6 months ago.
Just checked his myspace page ( stepsons) and he says his phone is broken... so I think I'll just get him a cupcake cake... as not to waste money as I'm not sure his mother will allow him to go.
She likes to do that to screw up our plans.
This way I can easily freeze the cupcake cake.
I'll sure be glad when he turns 18 as we are through with the games his mother likes to play USING HIM.
Maybe I'll wait to defrost the steaks too until I know he's coming, for sure. In the past his mother has made him change plans spur of the moment.
I may also hold my emergency car kit until Christmas... as it looks as if his mother wishes to start kaka over the birthday.
She tells him his father should be getting him things like a new car, like she does and that she loves him and his father doesn't as he doesn't buy him super expensive toys ( like the car)
what a mess.
O. M. G !!!
Just back from the mall.... they are clearing everything out for winters shipments and the deals were unbelieveable !
something 100 dollars is reduced to 50 ( 50% off)
then another 75% off that comes to 12.50............ sometimes even more off, even half of that !!!
( Pennys, Macys stores)
You should see the shirts and sweaters I got...
75 dollars original price, minus 50%= 37.50
minus 75% off comes to less than 10 dollars. Some were even more off, got one
long sleeved cotton t-shirt for 2.98
orginal was like 32.00 on that....
woah.... I'm just going to do ALL my clothing shopping first week in august. I bought maybe 1000 dollars worth of stuff retail
( jewelry and clothing) and spent about 50 bucks
even got mineral makeup kit, down from 60.00 to 6.99 !!!!
Is it me? or is this is kick butt , having lots of good fortune summer?
Must be retail and the malls did not do well this year to clearance out so many nice things so cheap...
maybe a bad year for retail, but GOOD FOR ME !!!!
