Another Random Tuesday


So, it's Random Tuesday and this is my first post in quite a while . . . I'm a slacker, I suppose.

This has been quite a week and it's only Tuesday. It started off with the headache from HELL, which I have had since Sunday and STILL have. Ugh, headaches suck!

We got to work yesterday and found out that our manager was in the hospital because they thought he might have had a heart attack . . . not cool. He is 76 years old, but still . . . not what you want or expect to hear. He seems to be in really good health and very fit, but something is wrong. He is at home now, but apparently the tests didn't show anything, so we are just kind of waiting and wondering. Again, not cool.

Today is the 2nd anniversary of my significant other's death. I thought I would be really sad, but surprisingly enough I am feeling okay right now. I do miss him every day, but more than that I am sad for my son. He won't have his Dad there when he gets his driver's license, when he graduates, when he gets married, when he has his first child . . . all of the things he should have him there for. Hopefully, I can continue to be the best mom I can be and help to make up for some of that.

I think maybe this post should be called Depressing Tuesday Thoughts.

On to happier thoughts . . .

Saturday, Tyler and I hung out together. We went to see Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian and it was funny; we liked it just as much as the first one. After that, I let him decide where we would eat dinner and he picked Taco Bueno of all things. Don't get me wrong, I love Taco Bueno, but the choices included IHOP, Chili's, and several others, but as I said, we ended up at Taco Bueno. After that, we decided to go by the Crazy Nana's and visit Brandy and the family. Oh my, was Grayson ever cranky. In his defense, we did wake him up from his nap. On the plus side, Nana went to the casino, so we didn't have to deal with her.

    I haven't seen either Night at the Museum movies yet. I'll have to rent them sometime.

    Never heard of Taco Bueno, must be a local thing.

  4. OMG girl I am weeping and close of vomiting with sadness for you. Sending virtual hugs.

  5. Glad to hear you're coping okay and giving yourself permission to be sad.

    Is Taco Bueno a chain? We don't have them here...our Mexican food pretty much amounts to Taco Bell and that's it.
