I need to get a taxi license!
I think that I should get my taxi license and go into business with my trusty TrailBlazer! I seem to spend half my life in my truck driving one or people to various destinations at various times of the day and night so I might as well get paid for it! Donovan had to be at his friend Brittney’s farm by 1000 Saturday to work on a science fair project with his group. I am all for working on educational stuff, but having to get up at 0815 on a Saturday morning wasn’t all that joyful! Add to that the fact that they live 20 minutes away in the middle of nowhere! YAY! Fortunately, he got a ride home so I was off duty from taxi service for a few hours. But, of course, that only meant I had more time for domestic duties like grocery shopping, a chore that I HATE! But done it is and I came home, curled up on the couch and watched me some Twilight! But I still had taxi duties later on since Donovan’s friend Catie had a party for her 17th birthday. Just getting him there ended up being an adventure in and of itself, one that young Mr. Donovan almost did not survive. I don’t know what was up his butt, but considering I was going out of my way to accomodate him, it annoyed the hell out of me. Since we had to make a couple of stops before dropping him at the party, I had told him to be ready at 5:30. All that he needed to do was eat dinner and change his clothes, not exactly monumental activities. But no matter how many times I reminded him, it made no difference. Kinda seems to me that at 16, I really shouldn’t have to nag him repeatedly to do something. Once should be sufficient. But it wasn’t and he never got out of there until 5:45, never mind that these stops were for him. And he was a complete jerk to me the entire time. I don’t know, I guess I just find it really disrespectful for him to totally ignore what I am telling him, especially when I trying to help HIM out. And then to add the attitude? Totally uncalled for. The only reasons he still went to the party was because Catie had planned for him to be there and because I really didn’t want to have to deal with him anymore! AARRGGHH!!
Sunday birthdays,… & nephews, too!
My family came over yesterday to celebrate Ka’lani’s birthday, who made out like a bandit with a remote control car, a series of books, and some extra ammo for his new Nerf gun that I got him. The kids, and Chris (my nephew’s baby daddy), had lots of fun racing around with the RC car! And the party also meant that Auntie Kim got to see her new little nephew! It also meant that Auntie Kim got to cuddle and kiss and love on him all day long! And Auntie Kim loved every minute of it! Kai is such a teeny little thing, still smaller than any of my own babies. He will be three weeks old tomorrow and weighs in at 6lbs 15oz and is perfect! Can you tell that Auntie Kim is besotted?!
