Hard Day

Hard Day

Yesterday was full of its ups and downs. I had an appointment at the library for Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities also known as OOD. I'm required to get a Job Coach for my job in order to renew my contract. I was told it may take at least two weeks to get it started since Job Coach is the only service I need. She said that she could put my application in the fast track of their organization because I only need one service. That was great news. 

Afterwards, I realized I had a spare dollar from my paycheck and bought a couple more books for my collection. They seem like they'll be great reads and they were 2 for $1.00. I also headed over to the gas station across the street to purchase my bi-weekly E-Cigarette Cartridges. I won't be able to afford them for two weeks so i'm stocking up on them. Even decided to try a new flavor "Nectar" which, so far so good.

When I got home things went a little downhill. I nicknamed my son "Boo" a while back and my mom absolutely hates it. She doesn't mind names like Stinky Butt though, how that makes sense I may never know. I called him Boo once that day and she asked me if I wanted to be a black girl. I told her not to play the race card, that she was just like everyone else, and that he's my son so I can call him whatever I like within' reason so she's just going to have to deal with it. She remained argumentative with me and my father the rest of the day trying to deliberately pick fights with us. Why? because I stood up to her and my father defended me that no harm was being done in calling him boo. Then later on it was all this person and that person is out to get me and playing the pity party card as well. My sister and I just rolled our eyes in another room. We were both pretty aggravated.

My sister and I did however get sucked into a crazy show on Amazon Prime and binge watched the final few episodes. It's a murder/mystery titled Harper's Island. I love it! It was gory and suspenseful just how I like my novels most of the time. It had some crazy turns of events and actors I've seen in other things and really liked. One of the characters was amazing, he switched from serial killer to innocent so fast your head would spin and I found him very talented and enticing. How he managed to be lovable yet hate-able at the same time. I really want to watch the show from the beginning now.

Mail had come and I was a little annoyed. Firstly, one of the items didn't look anything as pictured online. It was season 2 of Stargate SG-1 but wasn't the same edition as the others I ordered even though the picture was of the edition I wanted. I set it up for resale. The other was a book and it was described as a hardcover but I got a paperback copy. Never buying from eBay ever again. A plus side though is I got the wrong season of my all time favorite show a few days ago and I contacted the seller. He apologized for the inconvenience and refunded my money. When I emailed him back asking if I should return the product he never responded so I just assumed I get to keep it. It's a two for one! It worked because I was going to want that season eventually anyway.

I finished the evening by washing the dishes and took a shower. My son had fallen asleep on the couch for another power nap for the second night in a row. I did eventually take him upstairs when he woke up. He was mad at me but eventually came to my bed and cuddled until we both fell asleep for the night.

When he woke up this morning after I finished getting ready for work. I told him I wanted "huggies" he hugged me tight and I picked him up off the floor and held him for a couple minutes. He was still hugging me with his head on my shoulder. He even gave me an unsolicited kiss on the cheek. If that and a couple cups of coffee down the hatch doesn't make a mother's day, I don't know what will. It was a great start to a new day.
