It’s no secret. Im not a fan of winter. I get cranky and sad when it’s dark and cold. I try and stay ahead of it, but somehow it always sneaks up on me. My amazing doctor and I will more than likely have a couple of visits adjusting my cocktail of meds. There will be happy streaks and bad moods, good ups and slippery downs. Awareness and acceptance is key.
I wonder if this year will be a little better though. I don’t have a toxic work environment and my baby maker is gone. Fingers crossed those 2 things make a difference. One thing is for certain though. This guy will be there every step of the way. He won’t let the Jekyll and Hyde show scare him away. He thinks I’m worth it. Even when I try my hardest to prove him wrong.
Today we distributed a majority of the 50 wreaths that Brogan sold for travel ball. We borrowed our neighbors trailer to deliver them in. I can tell you that it’s a damn good thing we had our big travel trailer parked seasonally because if we had to tow that anywhere we would more than likely be divorced. I swear to god we drove it less than 5 miles total and I should have taken a Xanax.
After my recovery nap he took me shopping. We did Costco, Sams Club, Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, Burlington and Marshall’s. I’ve just got to say, Sams Clubs scan and shop is the best thing I’ve ever been a part of. I thought Meijer had it together with their scan and shop. At Sams Club there is no stopping at a register or waiting for the one overworked employee who is trying to run 20 self scans at the same time, to come and “touch my groceries”. That always cracks me up when they ask, “can I touch your groceries?” I wonder if anyone has actually said no. What happens then?
Whenever we go anywhere I have a set of keys and Chuck brings his set. Why you ask? I have no idea. I have never gotten locked out, and I’ve never actually left him anywhere even though I may have threatened it a time or two. There is one feature about my car that annoys the shit out of me. Whenever you close the door with a set of keys in it the horn will beep. Now I can see how that could be helpful but I every time I get gas it grinds my gears. Anyway while I was waiting for our Costco pizza I texted my friend who is pretty smart. He essentially showed me how to program the radio and taught me that I do not need to lean into the radio when I talk hands free. He sent me a YouTube link and viola. No more beep beep. It’s the little things in life.
