What We Do For Our Kids!

So, yesterday I am getting busy on my checklist and my son comes in the room. He says, “Hey Mom, the guy I’m working for needs someone to clean his condo. You want to do it for $20 an hour?” I said, “Sure why not.” My son tells me he just put new carpet in, so I didn’t have to worry about that.  He needs someone to clean the kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, clean the floors.  I thinking well that won’t be bad.  Boy, was I wrong!

 

Those rooms were horrible.  I started downstairs yesterday.  We only worked for a few hours because my son had to go to Home Depot. Today we were there from 8 to 5 but we had to leave for a while, so Dusty could go look at another job.  I still have at least another day or day and a half before I am done.  Even the washer and dryer were filthy.  I have to say though it has been fun working with my son again.  I haven’t done that since he was a kid. This time though he was the boss and not me.  I think I will be making a little more money than I thought I would make.

Well life is always good when you get to spend time with your loved ones whether it is working together or just visiting.

 

Massage and Neck Cracked

Today was a good day.  I couldn’t stand it, so I had to weigh.  I have lost some weight so I am happy.  David came home from working and took a shower.  When he came out he told me that he lost some weight.  This is really encouraging.

Well any way about the title.  The receptionist at my chiropractor found out that my insurance would pay for a massage because it is part of my physical therapy.  Also since I have reached my out of pocket I didn’t have to pay anything.  Well I said, “Of course, I will have a massage!”  It was this morning before I got my neck cracked.  My neck is finally getting better since I am sleeping in my bed and not traveling.

Day 4 of our life change.  David had to work today, so I sent him with water bottles and leftover meatloaf that was in the freezer.  He said he just ate one slice.  I really think he needs to eat more.  I had a shake for breakfast and lunch.  I also have been having the last of the coffee in the pot with ice and almond or cashew milk.  It has been a nice with the hot weather.

For supper I fixed hot wings.  I had cooked the wings last night while I fixed our supper.  Then today I made a sauce and put them in a gallon baggy with the sauce.  I stuck them in the fridge for later.  I was going to make a spinach salad but if it has been in the freezer it just welts when it thaws.  I sautéed them in butter with pecans.  We then put a vinaigrette on it and that was really nice.

Today was Thursday, so we go to Midnight Sun Brewery where David volunteers with the tour.  This is supposed to be our one day with a beer. I did stick to my one beer but David had two.  He doesn’t need to get in shape as bad as I do, so I don’t think it will hurt him.

I do have to seem to have more energy.  When I got home from the chiropractor I decided to tackle the kitchen. I had bought some OXO container to start putting my different flours and other things in.  I was Ketoing, is that even a work if not it should be, my kitchen.  I even got the stove cleaned.

 

Baby steps but I am getting our new life changed organized in my kitchen.  It will make it a lot easier now I think.
