This has been the longest week ever.
Monday-Took Jessica to her school orientation. My mom went with us so she could see the campus and area. We went to where we thought we needed to be, walked around, someone had a bit of nervous drama, finally found someone that pointed us in the right direction, got in the car, dropped her off. Then my mom and I went to Denny's for breakfast followed by hours of shopping on Cannery Row
. We ate a late lunch/early dinner at Louie Linguini's
, although sadly no tables with a nice view were open. I ate clam chowder and ordered a pizza. The pizza turned out to be more of a small family pizza than a personal one so I took most of that home but everything was really good. We only took a couple pictures.
My mom looking into the sun lol
And me in a gigantic sweatshirt. Guess it's time to get some smaller ones. Hard to believe that was a bit tight at one point.
We shopped until it was time to pick up Jess. We were almost back when she called me in tears. She was totally overwhelmed with everything. I went in with her and talked to a couple people and things were a bit better. We got her some food on the way home and by the time we were to Casa De Fruta
things were so much better. Although, spending almost $50 on one bottle of wine, some chocolate and pistachios I
wanted to cry a bit.
Tuesday Scott was feeling a lot better.
Wednesday he was in so much pain.
Thursday he was in a lot of pain but felt a bit better.
Saturday feeling a bit better.
Sunday, currently sleeping in the recliner.
This week has been a pain roller coaster. He gets in so much pain he can't do anything but sit there and try make it through. It's really hard to watch your husband be in so much pain and not be able to do anything to help.
Thursday he went to the (regular) doctor and now he had an Ortho appointment on Monday. We'll see how that goes. He got some different pain pills when he went to the doctor too. Not sure how much those are helping but he doesn't seem to be in that panic kind of pain mode now.
Thursday a friend of mine brought us over some food too. That was super nice. Working full time (mostly) and trying to keep up with everything and having him in so much pain is making me mentally exhausted. On top of all that my oldest has been doing a lot of growing up stuff that adds to my hair falling out.
Friday night I met a friend of mine for a drink after work. Which turned into two drinks (Applebees has delicious frozen margaritas!)
Last night I went to a party/bbq with work friends. It was fun hanging out with everyone in a non work setting and just being nice and mellow.
Today is book club at my mom's place. She had picked Tending Roses
for the book club book, which I had already read. I'm sure everyone will have really liked it. I've already been in the car for an hour and a half taking my sister in law to the BART station and then back home. She is really worried about my mother in law. She's been getting really dizzy and almost fell in the grocery store. Let's add one more crazy thing to everything that's going on :check:
I'm really trying to not go off my diet and to keep up with our bike riding.
I WILL not let this kick me off.
I WILL NOT be fat again.
Off to go ride bikes since I ate a waffle for brunch...
