Again I got up early this morning to take my friend to work. He says his car is supposed to be fixed by today. I sure hope so ~ I don't mind taking him but it's quite a bit of gas and we don't have any money to replace it until Friday. That andI really don't want to get up so early, lol.
He and I talked about a lot of things today ~ religion, people in general, ourselves and our histories, the kids, how they're holding up since the DCF inquisition, etc. Everybody seems to be doing okay, but I made sure he knew that if they needed a break for just the 2 of them this weekend we wouldn't be offended at all. Then we were at his office, hugged and said goodbye. It felt good to talk to a friend who listens, who really cares. To share about myself and my past and not have to feel ashamed about who I am.
I have to work tonight and already I'm feeling nervous. But I've promised myself I'm going to go in no matter what. I'm closing the store tonight, and there's no one else to do it. Besides that, I've got to prove that I can be reliable and be trusted to work more hours. This 4 hours a week just isn't enough to gain anything by. If it comes to it I may have to find a second part-time job to help me get some income, though the thought makes me cringe.
It's raining today, which is nice. It keeps it cooler for the day. After a little while I'm going to watch a movie with my son, do a little reading, and take a nap before I have to go in and do the daily chores. I just wish I wasn't tired. Even though I was tired when we laid down last night it took me what seemed like forever to fall asleep. Thoughts kept circling around in my mind, things that were random and sometime incomprehensible all jumbled together in one ceaseless noise. I finally fell asleep after about 2 hours of this. And let me tell you, I was a bear to get up this morning! My poor husband; I'm so grumpy in the early mornings.
But I'm going to try to keep it quiet and calm today. Zachary and I will play some and watch his movie, and then he's going to get to do his own thing for awhile while I nap. And believe me, I NEED one today. Especially if I'm going to get through tonight…
Another boring day, but they can't all be full of excitement, can they? Besides that, I'd be so frazzled and worn out that I wouldn't be able to function. I have to work Friday night too, so lots of activity wouldn't be a good thing right now.
I guess that's all I've got to say. When Zach finishes cleaning up the mess in the living room that he made we'll watch the movie together, though I'm not really looking forward to it. It's a kid's movie called "Wreck It Ralph" about video game characters. Who knows though? Maybe it will turn out to be cute.
Alright everyone, have a good Wednesday.
