Ok not quite twilight zone, more a I need more coffee morning, but I’m rambling anyway.
I woke up this morning and had peed the bed. While I can’t say this hasn’t happened before, it’s not supposed to happen. I just had bladder surgery a month ago, and PTNS this week. I am supposed to be “pee free” for a few more months at least :(.
Ok whatever, I opened my bedroom door and found my Mom sleeping on my couch. Hmmm that’s not where I left her last night. I went to the bathroom , cleaned myself up, and proceeded to let the dogs outside.
While going through the kitchen, I was met by thing 2’s boyfriend looking super chipper, telling me all the animals had been fed except for D.O.G. (who sleeps with me). I let the dogs outside, and came back in to find a cup of coffee waiting for me on the counter. ?!?!?!?!?
I stood at the counter trying “figure out where I was”, and I glanced down at the letter for a driving class beginning at 8:30….oh fuck did I get Another speeding ticket and forget about it? Crap crap crap
Then my phone went off, it was the 4th “Are you awake text” from one of thing 1’s best friends. ( They had been coming in since 5:30).
D, picked up the letter and headed toward the door. Ah yes…it was his ticket, he had class. (I’m very surprised I was able to put that together, and even more so that I told him the answer to number 15 on the test is 12-15 inches.)
Four cups of coffee later
I have finally been able to put most of the pieces together. Let’s go back to the beginning.
The peeing thing. Ok, this one still makes no sense, and will require a call to the doctor, but at least I was wearing depends last night and had slept on a waterproof pad, so clean up was not terrible. I am a bit nervous that I am having an MS flare, or that I will have to start looking for yet another treatment, but I will not allow myself to dwell on that til next week. (I’ve got more important things to do)
My confusion about seeing thing 2’s boyfriend looking all chipper at 8 o’clock in the morning. As I mentioned before, apparently HE had to attend the driving class. Let me elaborate on my confusion more. First of all, D works overnights. The NORMAL interaction between us in the morning is ME heading out the door telling him the animals have been fed. I normally tell him the coffee maker has been set up for him. And I am usually the one who has to attend the driving class.
When you receive a speeding ticket in Illinois, you have the option of attending a 4 or 8 hour defensive driving class. If you pay extra to attend the class, pass the test, and stay ticket free for 6 months this will keep the ticket from appearing on your record so that your insurance doesn’t increase. I have attended the class enough that I can teach it. The question to the answer I gave him as he walked out the door was, ” How far from your chest should your steering wheel be positioned?” The answer on the test is 12-15 inches, although I still maintain it SHOULD be, however far you need it to be….smh
The multiple texts from KR
The last time I had a morning interaction with KR and Thing One, it was to fight to wake them both up at 10 in the morning after a sleepover. After answering her, “are you awake” text, I am happy to report that it was for an exciting reason. KR is pregnant. Both girls have been texting back and forth for hours planning how their children will also grow up being best friends etc…… I have to smile here. For many reasons. I am glad that KR feels I am important enough to receive one of the first, I peed on a stick calls. I am excited that both girls are in a much better place than I was when I found out I was pregnant. I am excited that they have both matured into beautiful intelligent hardworking woman.
Why is my mom on the couch?
I’m still not sure about this one. I’m also not sure why I am letting her sleep. (payback’s a bitch) 😛 I do know why she is here though. She came to stay the weekend with me while we get things ready for my daughter’s baby shower tomorrow. I am so lucky that I was raised in a family that is so tight nit. My heart is so full this morning.
I hope you all have an incredible weekend. Lots to be done here, and more coffee to drink.
