Today, was a little different for me….it was a “fly by the seat” of your pants type of day. I got a call last night from the Nurse, asking me if I would watch Cam man today. Pfft….is there any answer but yes?
So when the Electrician came into the bedroom and “gently” asked me to get up, I woke up swinging. By that I mean, my hair was askew, and I tried to surface. I grabbed the cup of coffee that was sitting there for me (Thank you honey). I got the bed made and then got dressed. By the way, have I mentioned how much I HATE to get up early?
I traveled over and arrived at the Nurse’s house before I was supposed to be there, and hehehe, she didn’t look any better than me, but all’s I had to do was deal with Bella the dog, and crawl on the couch, she had to go to work.
Bella and I made peace and we were both settling down to go back to sleep, but oops, Cam Man arrived. Blanket in tow, and did not want to go back to sleep. Sigh….After getting all his stuff together, telling Bella by, our day started.
Arriving at my house, and getting another cup of coffee and a mug of chocolate milk, we were ready. While I will admit to laying on the couch with Cam man while “Curious George” came on, after he was done, me and Cam got busy.
Cam decided the clothes we brought over for him, wouldn’t cut it, he went into what I like to call the “blue room” and opened the drawer and dragged out his “Buzz lightyear” shirt and wanted to wear that today. So,it was.
Cam and I proceeded to breakdown a whole chicken, cuz, I was making fried chicken for dinner. We made papa’s lunch and a pasta salad, and then decided it was time to go. We did a few more things, but it’s ok.
On our drive to Papa Dan’s, I was peppered with, “Are we there yet?, Now? Now?” We cheated this morning, we visited the golden arches. (enough said). (I have to admit, I was having keyboard problems last night and this is where I stopped typing, so this will be a 2 day post, as long as my keyboard co-operates.)
After arriving at the Farmer’s, we got busy with some stuff, and of course Cam-man peppered the Farmer with “Is it time to see the tractor yet?”. After papa Dan got the John Deere out of the barn, Cam-Man and I went for a drive through the country, Cam even put his seat belt on and (imaginary) drove me everywhere. We laughed and giggled, and just had an over all time. It was time for us to go in and check on Momma and give her some more meds. Cam was at the window, while I was giving meds to Momma, when Cam yelled at me. “Jo, Papa Dan stuck”. huh?
I was done giving meds and came to look at what he was talking about. Sure enough, the mower was in the ditch, and Papa Dan had the John Deere tractor, ready to pull it out. Cam and I flew out the door to offer ‘assistance”.
Cam was stationed at the top of the hill, and I went down into the ditch and helped to “drive” the mower out. Cam was fascinated. His eyes got so big, and he wanted to help so bad. He was so excited when the mower got unstuck that he started jumping up and down and clapping and yelling.
With everything back to normal, I told Cam (after he had run the length of the yard, “driven” the John Deere, and conquered the pirates trying to steal the tractor) it was time to get Momma up.
We went inside and Cam-Man held Momma’s hand and gave her all the encouragement he could. Him and Momma were “love muffins” today, the loving and hand holding and kisses going on. Well….they make my heart melt.
Apparently, I wore Cam out, because he fell asleep on the way home and did not even want to wake up for his papa, and then when his Momma came to get him, he cried. He was a very tired little boy.
Fast forward to today, when I wish Cam-Man had been there. today, Papa Dan’s driveway got rocked and tarred, I wish I would have taken pictures. (palm smack to the forehead, where is the camera?) Cam would have loved all the BIG trucks and stuff going on.
But anyway, today, was a good day. Momma was back in form, and enjoyed spending time with me, to holding my hand, and giggling over every day stuff. Papa Dan got a new driveway, Papa Electrician got a note from Cam-man left on his window of his truck at work from Cam Man, and I had a good day period.
Remind me to tell y’all about the newest episode of Ms. Baby and the birds, and also it’s gonna be a good weekend. Cam Man is spending the night.
My life if pretty busy right now, and I appreciate that fact, the busier I am keeps me out of trouble and dwelling on things. It’s all good in my hood. Hope it is the same for y’all…. Night…
