I had one plan today, and one plan only:
That was to go to The Bookworm.
I had a roommate in college that married a guy (he also went to college with us). Anyhow they both worked at Hallmark, and he just wrote and illustrated his first or second graphic novel called Time Shifters with Scholastic. He came from KC to Omaha to sign books. Of course knowing that I was off work I wanted to go buy his book, and get it signed.
Sounds easy enough right?
On any normal day it would be easy to trot over to a local bookstore to get a book signed.
Remember taking a shower is a task in my mind.
Here's how my day really went:
- Made breakfast for our family of four.
- Played Scrabble with Mica. He hated that game before my surgery. Now he wants to play it every day. It went from him being a sore loser to being a good sport.
- Took a shower.
- Got lunch prepared, and did the dishes.
- Did a load of laundry. I showed the boys how.
- I made Mica get the laundry, then we put it away together.
I started to cry uncontrollably. It just hit that part of my nose that brought tears on. I snapped big time. I know he didn't mean it. Time and time again I've told him not to throw ice packs at me. Just hand them to me!
After getting after him with tears flowing down my face he started to cry. Again I know he didn't mean it. He's just so unaware of how big he is, and how awkward his throwing skills are.
After getting over that, which took awhile. Boy did it sting! I tried to be positive.
I thought...I'm feeling pretty good today I'll text my sister to see if she can meet me at The Bookworm. It was right by her house. Of course her son that has special needs had physical therapy, I was taken wrong, and all the sudden I was taking my two year old nephew Edison with us. Oh boy did I not want to deal with a car seat!
- Off to my nephew's I went.
- We were off to The Bookworm.
1 for my kids and 1 for my nephews.
Here's where I had to get after my kids. They couldn't understand why they couldn't each get the same book. They really couldn't understand why I was sharing one of their coupons with their cousins. They earned it through their library reading program. Well I could have gotten this book at a cheaper price on Amazon with Prime shipping. Kids don't get this sort of thing.
My oldest nephew Evan said in regards to my nephew Elijah that's Isaak's age, "You know it's good Elijah's walking. He needs the exercise. He's been eating so much! He hardly plays basketball right now." I was cracking up inside. Elijah's really pretty skinny!
I came home and wanted to crash, but instead we went out to dinner.
I think today made up for yesterday where I slept off and on all day, and never got out of my pjs.
What did you do today?
