For love of my kid's

Sep 17, 2016 12:35 PM

Okay so every Thursday I sit on bleachers for 5 hours to watch my daughter's boyfriend and and my son play their football games and now with my daughter being in band I will be working concession stand on Friday night home games for the senior high games, last night was my first night working the stand. Got their at 5:30 to set up and didn't get home until almost 11pm , when I got home I took one step out of my car and OMW I was a very hurting puppy! My mind is say "I have to do this again next week!?" LOL! Today I wish I could take it easy but I can't, because we are kind of redoing the house reorganizations because my husband is adopting the kid's , and I'm not sure but I think the lawyer said that people from the child department of home services would be coming, so we are just trying to get everything looking even better. ( Not that my house is a mess, because it's not lol, just don't want to chance anything!)

I'm soooo excited to hear about the adoption process happening. That's wonderful news ... It's hard to let things go with so much happening .... Pace yourself and plan on some serious selfcare once the house is order ... Then see if there is some small improvements to working the concession stand to make it easier ... Those cushy Mats to stand on??? Ask for extra help? It's so hard when everything is back to back ...

I do the bleachers, too. I got a folding stadium chair and added an extra cushion. It helps, but I come straight home and lay flat. Ouch! It's worth it because it's my boy.

I have the stadium chair as well with the extra cushion this Thursday is the first time I used it, except I gave the extra cushion to my husband to use so I am going to get my husband one so I can have my extra cushion back lol!

I'm happy for you and your hubby and the children! It's it possible to get someone to rotate 2 hours in the concession stand? Or maybe do other things except the concession stand?

I'm going have to do something, because I am still recouping and tomorrow is Wednesday, next thing I know Friday will be here.
