So I began this week (only yesterday) thinking it would be the longest week ever. I have my employee’s Christmas party on Saturday which I have to prepare for because my date cancelled Friday along with my hairdresser cancelling the same day. So not only did I have to find a new date and a new hairdresser (with the holidays hairdressers are really busy on Saturdays) I also have to dye my already pink shoes black, return the coat I bought and buy it again with the $50 coupon I found at home, go grocery shopping, clean my apartment for my guests, get all my pet supplies, return the 40 inch tv we bought for my mo because it is broke, return the 3D blu-ray player because I decided not to get a 3D tv, get beer, apply to Ashland University for my MBA, work, laundry, doctors appointments, and whatever other things that come my way like stop at my mom’s house and move all her furniture.
Yesterday I decided to ask one of my friends if they had a day off if he could help me run some errands and I would pay him so I have more time to get everything done. It worked. And thank goodness because I really hate UPS and grocery stores.
So today he did my shopping and will be returning the tv and blu-ray player while I woke up early for a doctor appointment where we decided to have me get an upper endoscopy which is a procedure where they knock you out, stick a camera down your throat and look at the inside of your stomach and part of your intestines. I am having this procedure because I have been having some bad stomach pains since my last surgery.
I have been emailing and Facebook-ing any hairdresser I can think of and finally found someone to get my hair done with for the party. I have my date confirmed; one of my favorite people from Columbus is so generous to drive all the way up to Cleveland for a black-tie event with an open bar in the Browns Stadium 😉
After my doctor appointment I had a couple hours of free time before a second doctor appointment a set up to go visit my brother, his wife, and new baby girl. It was a very nice visit. Sibley is a very chill baby. So beautiful too. I can honestly say that she has no blemishes. Every part of her is perfect. Her hands, her face, her full head of hair (already a ton of hair and only 6 days old), her ears, and just everything I can see is perfect.
Mommy was able to take a little nap when I was there which I’m sure was much needed and me and my bro got to hang out. When mommy woke up to take care of Sibley I helped out and did the dishes and got some lights up on their Christmas tree so my brother was able to get some work done and make some calls. I was happy to help. I have seen how much time babies take away from every day life when my sister had my nephew Henry. I have zero children and I am paying a friend to do my grocery shopping because I don’t have enough time; I could only imagine what my life would be like with an infant! A little while before I had to leave my brother asks me “Can I hold her?” So precious. It was a little funny though. She is your baby of course you can hold her. Take her from me any time you want. Tell me to leave when you want me to leave. Ask me to go to the store for you if that is what you need someone to do. I’m here to help not just for the baby even though if you didn’t just have a baby I would have spent those 4 hours at Fran’s with my nephew! Ha.
So that was really cool. Oh she finally opened her eyes for me. I haven’t seen her open her eyes yet because the other time I spent with them she was asleep. It was pretty cool. She just stares at you with her big baby eyes. I think she is going to have brown eyes. I think I saw brown coming through so she definitely has my brother’s eyes. I also got to have my first experience changing a baby girl’s poopy diaper thank you very much. It is hard. Boys are so much easier to change, but hey, like I said, I’m here to help…
So go to second doctor, get some vaccination, over and out in under 20 mins. Quick cat-nap at my apartment before dentist appointment. Drive 20 miles to dentist office and they look really confused. Turns out my appointment is next week! “Um, then where am I supposed to be right now?” Nowhere. So I just drove 36 miles round trip for nothing. Awesome. I could have napped longer!
So I went to Beachwood mall to return and re-purchase the coat I bught at Express. They would not let me use the coupon because it had expired yesterday. No joke. They wouldn’t price match or anything. I got a little snippy with them. Its a $200 coat. I had the coupon when I bought it I just forgot to use it. It has only been expired for one day. Give me a break. Long story short their outerwear was on sale 30% off so I had the price adjusted and got $42 back so lost out on $8. Whatever, I’ll take it. On my way out of the mall the little cupcake stand caught my eye so I bought a half dozen cupcakes on impulse. Guess what. It just happened to be cupcake happy-hour! Buy 6 get 2 free. Sweet. Now I have a ton of sugar filled cupcakes that I will probably forget about since I buy breakfast, lunch, and dinner I hardly ever go in my fridge. I gave a couple to my friend that did my shopping and I’ll have them for visitors so it works out.
After the mall I had just enough time to go to my mom’s and move her furniture back where it was before she had her carpet cleaned. Oh shoot, I forgot to get the jewelry I went there for. Dang it. Adding “go back to mom’s and get jewelry” to my list.
Long day. Time for dinner. Night folks.
