Well, work turned out to be a LOT busier than expected. The truck carrying all of the flowers for Mother's Day came in this morning and I spent all 4 hours processing the flowers and getting them ready to go out on the floor for the customers. I didn't mind though, it kept me busy and I had Barbara there with me to remind me about things I had forgotten. I forgot how much I liked her. A lot of people don't like working with her because she's meticulous but it doesn't bother me at all. I'm pretty picky myself. 😉
Between Zach being sick and us being broke I had to cancel my therapy appointment. 🙁 We need every penny we can save right now. We have very little to live on over the next week and a half. But we'll make it, we always do. Part of it is that we owed Mom more rent this week than normal because we could only pay partially last paycheck.
Speaking of checks I got my first paycheck today and was so happy! Something about making money yourself is a good feeling, especially when you're holding it in your hands and know that YOU did it. I'm proud of myself for going through with this and conquering my apprehensions and anxiety about working ~ I still get anxious, but I do it anyhow. That's making me stronger.
Zachary is feeling much better this afternoon. I'm so relieved! He sounded horrible this morning. But the flu medication I gave him seemed to work great and I think tomorrow I'll dose him before he leaves for school so that it gets him through the day without many problems. He's regained his voice and isn't sneezing or coughing with that deep in the chest sound. Now I have to baby my husband though. Sheesh!
So tonight is going to be a quiet one. I have a headache and would love to take a nap ~ so maybe I will. My husband won't be home for another hour. Just enough time to feel rested up and not set myself up for sleeping problems overnight. Last night even though I took a sleep aid I woke up at 1:30 a.m., but I made myself go back to bed quickly. I got to sleep until 7:30 this morning which was really nice. I woke up to my son lying beside me saying "Mommy, it's time to get up now…". He's such a cutekid; I love him so much!
Tomorrow I work again but this time I'll be cashiering. I prefer that to any other type of work at the store, even floral sometimes. It helps me interact with people and forget about my nerves and it keeps me busy most of the time. I'll have a decent paycheck from this week's work.
Hard to believe it but Zach will graduate from 1st grade on the 22nd. Then he'll be home with me for 2 weeks and then off to daytime summer camp. I think he'll have fun and make some friends there. I really hope Mindy puts Joshua in it too like she was planning to. That would be good for both of the boys.
Well, I'll stop now. I've blogged twice today but I wanted to share that I had a good day and things are better. Now if I could just get this headache to leave…
