Yesterday was a very fun, easy-going, and interesting day. It was the second time, my mom has ever had a day off when I’ve had to go to work. The last time, it was December and my parents were going to Jasper to some more Christmas shopping for us. So it wasn’t such a big deal with they were in the same town as me and that also meant, my day was going to be shorter than it usually is. Since I normally stay after the girls leave to go home with my mom when she gets off work that evening. This time I got to go home at 5pm and I finally got to watch all my shows on regular times. Instead, of my dad getting me ready to go to work, my mom got to do everything, which almost sent me over the edge, because there was a lot of things she did different from my dad and we kind of have this routine. Even when I was at school and I had a sub for that day, I had to teach them everything that my normal aide does and what I do in each class. Sometimes, it was almost routine like. I got very used to it, but since I haven’t done it in a while, it was like she was changing certain parts and I wasn’t having it. I’m going to have to get used to it though, because she’s going to be doing it more often. They’re both very different, and sometimes it drives me crazy.
The night before, I prayed to have a good day because I was in need of one. My mom washed my hair and while she was texting and I was trying to remember what time it was before she got me up, and trying to add everything she had to do before my driver got there. Thursday’s are my early days and so my mind was really racing because when my dad gets me ready, he doesn’t usually text in the middle of everything and be on his phone longer than two minutes. It felt like she was on her phone longer than 20 minutes. She blow dried my hair and fed me. She was going to get me dressed first before she fed me, and we ended up arguing about that for five minutes about the reason to wait. My dad feeds me first so just in case, anything gets on the bed and my shirt gets whatever was there. I was going to wear my white sweater, and if she had given me anything other than white, would have been a disaster. Imagine that fight. Anyways, I ate and afterwards, she dressed me in my white sweater with black skulls and crossbones. My dad doesn’t think any of my skulls stuff is very professional, so my mom understands and everybody at work didn’t see or say anything about it. So it was okay. I also wore my jean like leggings. I only had to wear a clip in my hair because my bangs wouldn’t stay away from my face. At least it wasn’t the headband.
You can tell God heard my prayer because not only did I get one of my favorite drivers, but it was also beautiful outside. My mom said it was the warmest day of the year so far. I didn’t even need my jacket on when I went outside, that’s how nice it was! My mom still put socks on me, but I think that was just routine. So when I got inside the van and we were on our way, I had to do things a little differently. Instead of my mom being at work, I couldn’t exactly text her that I was on my way in different spots, so I had to get my co-workers number the night before and thankfully I remembered to do that too, because I almost forget about it. So I ended up texting her. Once I finally got there, I was happy that I was there, even though I had a blast on the way there because my driver and I have pretty good conversations. Anyways, we got inside and I finally got to see my other co-worker, who looked like she had gotten a haircut, which she did. We both had new hairstyles. I hadn’t been at work since the week before I got my hair done. Even though, I told majority of people what I was getting and they saw the pictures on my mom’s Facebook. A few hadn’t seen it, especially the residents. So I had my skull sweater, red hair, and new polish on my fingers and toes. One of the residents liked the yellow nails, it was so cute!
We did four different things yesterday. We did our usual play UNO, go on a van ride, and scents. Yesterday, we also read to the residents upstairs. Well, I didn’t. I think I’d get too insecure about how bad I’m saying the words and take too long to be reading out loud. That’s why I read to myself. The girls told me I was going to (possibly) win one of the two games we played, because they know how much I think I’m going to lose at UNO and they were trying to give me some extra faith. Just because I was having a good day, doesn’t mean God’s going to let me win one game of UNO. Not in this lifetime. I almost did though, so that’s okay. For our car ride, we went to Ferdinand, we got to see the Monastery. They’ve done a tour before and we’ve driven by it before. It is huge and interesting. Everytime the girls talk about the interior, makes me a little jealous. Hopefully sometime I’ll actually get to see the inside of it. After we got back from the van ride, we sat in the room for a bit and talked our heads off like women normally do. Which reminds me that sometime this weekend, I have to make CDs for one of the girls. She needs some Halestorm and Five Finger Death Punch and I promise I didn’t force her to listen to them, I was lucky she was a fan of both before we got to this point. We also got on each other’s good side when we both started singing “Freak Like Me” in the room. Thankfully we were whispering the words, because we were going a little crazy.
My mom came and got me. I had to go upstairs to find her, but that was okay. When my mom and I finally did leave, it was really weird to see the sun still out and it wasn’t cold as crap. My mom to do something before actually left town and I got to see a part of Jasper, I’ve never seen. The part where the mansions are and man, are these houses beautiful! My mom showed me one of the houses worked on, its red bricked with some green. It’s the ultimate Christmas house I will say that, but it was pretty. All the houses were gorgeous, but most were like two stories and as much as some people like those kinds of hoses, I’ll be the first to admit, they’re definitely not my favorite. I’ve lived in a one story house and I hate stairs and in-house elevators. Imagine getting stuck in that elevator. On our way home, my mom and I talked about, well mostly my day and we listened to the radio. We got home just after 6pm and it was weird for me, because I actually had time to wait for The Vampire Diaries and I actually got to watch the episode in the same day! I’m not going to be able to do that next week, but it was nice to enjoy it last night. By the end of the night, my mom had gotten food from Subway and got me some movies too. She got me (finally) The Words and Here Comes The Boom. Which is what I’m planning on watching after the post is published.
