Yesterday while getting in my car to leave for work, I realized I didn't have my coffee. So, I got out of the car - and my foot went sliding across the garage floor and my arm and knee hit the car. I thought my arm and knee hurt until I got to work and then I realized that my BACK is killing me! All day long I did the postponement trick - I'll go to the doctor after I take this motrin. I will go to the doctor after lunch, because after all, a girl needs her lunch. I will go to the doctor after 3:00. Then, I will skip the doctor because I want to go to the 5:30 meeting. And this morning I am doing the same thing - my back still hurts, but get this - I am going to the gym and I am going to try to run 3 miles and see how that goes. If it goes well, I obviously don't need to go to the doctor, I just need to go to work.
My daughter is supposed to get out of jail today and her father is doing some sort of "intervention". I am praying, something has to change here. Those baby girls cannot live with a mother such as her. Today is the little one's third birthday. Thank God she is too young to really "get" that it is her birthday. We are going to celebrate it on Thanksgiving.
My ex has changed his mind about Thanksgiving. He had said he wasn't going to have it at his house and so I would have the kids and grandkids here. However, he has changed his mind. I am not going to argue with him because he has really stepped up to the plate with the grandkids and he needs all the help he can get.
So I will do something I haven't done in probably 15 years. I am going to go to the AA club for Thanksgiving. The kids will come over here for a brunch of eggs benedict, and then when they leave, I will go to the club. Someone requested that I make an apple and a pumpkin pie, so I will do that.
