It snowed again today. Very lightly, but still enough to need a snow brush.
I woke up at 7:30am not really needing to but wanting too. Truth be told I had an ‘angle and demon on my shoulder’ moment. I could either stay sleeping and rest or wake up and get busy. The angle won.
I got out of bed grabbed my Bluetooth and headed to the bathroom. Sat down for a bit to tune in the conference and gather myself. While listening I brushed my teeth and washed my face. I looked into the mirror and said “Good Morning!“
Sat in front the computer, turned everything on and opened up my browser windows. My nephew was left home with mom today. She was kicked out of work for two days because she is sick. It worked out for my sister. The original plan was for me to pick up the baby from the sitter after I ran my errands but my sister did not want to drive in the snow with him.
I left the house around 9:15. I had a busy morning and wanted to get it done early. The sooner I got home, the sooner my mother could rest. My first stop was at the bank. I had some cash put away and decided to deposit it. I always try to set aside a certain amount every week as a way to save.
The next stop was at my chiropractor’s office. In August of 2017, I hurt my back. I suffered from two herniated disks with a small crack in my spine. Thank goodness I have a great friend working in a physical therapy office, NJ Spine and Wellness. Instead of considering surgery it was recommended to fight through and develop strength through physical therapy. So, I fought!
I went 3 days a week for 3 months. Did so well that the next month was dropped down to 2 days a week. Leading to January and after only once a month for maintenance. What a journey!
I am more that grateful to have been put in their care. Truly amazing facility!
The next three stops were in and out. I went to Target to get a pair of pants, deodorant, lint rollers and Yu-Gi-Oh! cards. I actually did not go into Target for any of that but hey, it happens. Along the way I stopped at Dunkin Donuts for my mom and bought her breakfast – bacon, egg and cheese on a plain bagel. Making my way home I stopped at the gas station and finally getting in at 12:30pm. Pretty crazy morning!
I did take over watching my nephew while my mother slept. To be honest I think he is sick too. He has slept more today than what he did when he first popped out. I hope he is just tired because I do not feel he has a fever which is a good sign. While he slept I did post something new, click here to see, that I hope attracts a lot of people.
It is dinner time now, 9:30pm, and I was starving. In my plate sat delicious chicken stew over white rice with a side of sweet plantains. As I ate I caught up with YouTube, reviewed some product knowledge and am ending my night watching a show called “My Next Guest with David Letterman” on Netflix.
