Even though I was hurting I went to Rachel’s soccer game. We dropped off my prescriptions and went to get drinks for the game first. The game was two cities away so it was one long drive. They redid the field though so we could sit in the van and watch the game. I was able to have a cushy seat and be able to be out of the wind.
Rachel did the best that she has in a long time. She got more involved in the game and controlled the ball really well. We were pretty proud of her. I had french-braided her before the game and against her wishes. I told her after the game that she did so well because she was working the braid. I don’t think she was feeling it.
When we got home Kevin and Rachel got their showers and we headed over to my parents for dinner. I know, I know. I said in my vent that I didn’t want to go but I decided it would be best to try to keep the peace. And at least I would get to see my Grandma McSpirit and my dad.
I was glad we went over. We all had a very good visit. We noticed that my Grandma McSpirit keeps my mom in line. She is my mom’s aunt but she raised her. Grandma M has no problem telling my mom to appreciate what she has and how good she has it. And my momma listens and appreciates it. It’s a side of my mom I had never seen before. We loved it
When my mom makes us dinner she always cook something that I don’t routinely make. And by routinely I mean ever. Tonight we had meatloaf. I’ve made meatloaf only once for my family. I had to find a rockin’ recipe. For one time. For dessert we had cherry and apple turnovers. I’ve never made them for my family. It makes going to my ‘rents special for everyone. At least it’s not just another meal!
Everyone is wiped out now and is chilling before bedtime. Of course, the big dogs want to play now. Oops…actually they want food. That’s important!
