I have a feeling energy drinks will be my friend today and tomorrow and possibly Friday but not sure about that day yet. I have been getting up at around 6am this week so Richard doesn't have to try to be quiet while getting ready for work and to help make sure he keeps track of the time. No he isn't in trouble just think of me as an extra alarm for him, one he can't shut off. Anyways so since I'm not used to being up so early I have been relying on Monster energy drinks to help me adjust to my new found early morning hours. once I start getting used to them which will prob be next week I will cut back on the energy drinks and start only having them if I just need a little pick me up cause I didn't sleep so well.
Today however is going to be a 2 energy drink day. I didn't sleep well last night thanks to a small gray fuzzy thing that I shall not name *cough* Kramer *cough* I usually would only dink one but I have the added bonus of babysitting a 5 month old later today for 6 hours. I am doing this for a coworker of moms, it was kinda funny how it came about cause I called her to tell her about Annette Funicello passing away and as mom picks up the phone to answer it I hear "Here she is" she knew it was me cause the phones have caller ID now. She asked if I would be willing to babysit for I believe his name is Mat and I said sure and talked to him. Turns out his significant other has class and he has to work at the same time and I guess their usually babysitter can't do it for some reason. So I said I would be happy to help him out. I will be getting picked up at 12:15 and wont be done till after 6. Looking forward to meeting this little girl, I'm sure we will get a long cause all little kids love me no matter what age they are. It's my curse/gift don't believe me ask my mom.
Tomorrow is going to be shall we say kinda busy. Mom leaves Friday night for Chicago for The ASPAN National Conference. Which means Tomorrow is, food shopping and the dreaded clothes shopping. Both mom and I agree that going clothes shopping for one another is horrid. Though I think with me it's a lot easier cause I'm not as picky as she is. Thankfully we are only going pants shopping which isn't so bad. Or well at least that's all I think we are doing, things have a way of changing. I remember this one time years ago we went shopping for clothes for her for conference and moms friend Pat was with us and was trying to convince mom to buy Capri pants. Mom thought they would look horrid on her but she just randomly grabs a pair to take to try on. Mind you she grabbed a pair way to big for her. we go to the dressing room she tries them on and I just start laughing and laughing because of how ridiculous she looks in the over sized pants that made her look like grandma. I'm literally on the floor of the dressing room in tears I'm laughing so hard. Pat tells me I shouldn't be laughing and comes to look and even she starts laughing. Mom did actually end up buying a pair of Capri pants in her size and she looked fine in them but I wont forget how goofy she looked in the first pair.
I'm not quite sure what the plan for Friday is yet, other then having to take mom to the airport at night, oh and helping her pack, we have this ritual we go through while she packs. This time should be fun cause we also get to deal with Flynn or as I lovingly call him Agent Orange, and yes the name totally fits him.
In other news, a house literally houses down from moms was on fire the other night, I had been in this house thousands of times growing up, cause my friend Little Steph lived there till we were in high school. I found out via FaceBook and informed mom of it cause she had no idea. All the damage is basically in the roof or prob the back half of the house. Mom drove by it yesterday and said you couldn't tell by looking at it that there was any damage to it.
