This morning, we went to the chiropractor, and I was so tight. I knew this wasn’t going to be fun. He got me to crack little bit, but sleeping on my parent’s bed, and my hips, my ankle were a little tender. I am due to go back on the 20th, and I think I will be better for that visit, especially by then we will be back in our old routine of going to the gym and sleeping in a firmer bed.
After the chiro, we went to Starbucks, and then we went to Autozone in Moon. We had to pick up the stuff he needed in order to change his brakes, and his oil. While we were at Autozone, RMU’s commencement ceremony just ended. We were right across the street from the campus, and I got to thinking about my interview, and how bad I wanted that position, and how bad I wanted to work on campus. I am not sure how it is going to go, next week, or even if I will get an offer. I don’t have the feeling one way or the other. I am not sure. I watched some of the graduates walk across university to the shopping center with their families. I tried to remember my graduation, but I couldn’t. I don’t really remember it. I remember bits and pieces, but nothing really stands out, weird how that happens over time.
After we picked up the tools to fix the brakes, we went to walmart to get Maci a birthday gift. I figured I would just give it to her today, since her birthday was last week. We are going to her birthday party next weekend, but I figured she should have her gift now, instead. We got her a shopkins set, and hoped she didn’t already have it, and a little Poppy doll. I hoped she didn’t have the Poppy doll either. While we were in Walmart, I was on the phone with Anthony he was telling me about the drama, and how he is not friends with Dylan and Carrie anymore. I heard the drama, and then Drew ran into an old coworker of us his from Service Link, so I got off the phone with Anthony, and was able to chat with his old coworker for a few minutes. Then we left, and went home to hang out for a bit. I got to do some laundry and relax with Drew for a while, before we left for Leanne and Dan’s.
Once we got to Leanne and Dan’s, I couldn’t wait to see Maci. We parked in their garage. I let the boys get to work, and I went up to hang out with Maci and Leanne. She loved her gift. She already had a little Poppy doll, but she didn’t have any of the Shopkins that we bought her. I was so happy! I also got to meet little Rosetta the new kitten in the family, who looks just like Tigger. Leanne showed me the new fire stick that they got for their television. They paid 100 to have it jail broken. I said, “Drew could have done that for you for free. We are going to get one too.” Leanne, said, “Damn I wish I would have known.” She showed me how it works, and I was able to search for the shows I wanted to watch when we got ours. I was impressed, illegal, or not. It is still cool.
Maci and I watched Moana, and then a little bit of the Boss baby. Leanne made Drew and I tacos for dinner. I had two, but then it dawned on me that we were supposed to go to the cafe with his parents that night. I figured I would just eat small there. Drew didn’t get a chance to eat. He was busy with the car. It eventually took a few hours to get the brakes done, and we didn’t leave there until 7:30pm. I looked at the clock at one point, and saw that it was 7:15pm. I called his mom and told her that we were going to be late, this took a little longer than expected. She was understanding of it. She knew we had things going on. His dad was getting annoyed and probably wasn’t in the best mood. I knew this was going to be fun!
Once we arrived at the cafe, his dad was in the worst mood. It has been awhile since I seen him this cranky. I tried to ignore it, but it wasn’t our fault that it took as long as it did. We had shit to do and I told them that before. We put our order in, while we were on the way there, so it would be ready, when we got there. It came out shortly after we arrived. I wasn’t all that hungry, but I did eat some wings and a side salad. They were dead for the Pens game. The pens ended up losing to the capitals, but there were still many games to be played. I was hopeful that the pens would win against the capitals when all was said and done.
During dinner, we told his parents about the fire stick, and his dad said, “you gotta watch those fire sticks, my barber has one and said it is constantly buffering.” I just ignored him and said, “Leanne and Dan have one and it works great.” He didn’t say anything back to me. Drew and I just looked at each other. We both knew what kind of mood he was in. I talked to his mom most of the time, and I told her that RMU is supposed to let me know next week, and how excited I am. She was praying for me, and I am so grateful for it. I need all the help I can get.
Once we got home, we went to bed. It was a long day.
