While I rushed to pack, since I didn't do so the night before (expecting them not to arrive until the afternoon) April got a ride from him to get some soda at the store. I got clothes, art stuff, food, and the smartphone (which has games.) It wasn't until after, when we were in the car, I learned that there was no cable, no internet, and the 'paying' live-in tenants (the ones whose violent talk, habitual swearing, and ignoring my existence had made me uneasy at Mom's) moved back to New York. Consequently, this meant bills were tougher and Mom cut cable and internet to save money. If there were no kids here, I imagine the days would go by quite silently.
Also, there is no air conditioning here, only a few generously blowing fans to cling to. No television, since it's hooked up to someone else's X-Box in the living room and Aaliyah's television gets no channels at all. I'm not about to invade Mom's while she is not home.
No internet means no blogging, no Secondlife, no keeping up with Flight Rising, no Okcupid, Skype, no email, no Instagram, Stumbleupon, Pininterest (recent fascination), Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, and a whole slew of other things.
Ten days and counting. I hope the book I want, which is an account from a coroner to the 'late' stars, is worth it. Lol. This is different. I can draw, read, and daydream. My headphones are big and not very loud and the kittens ruined part of the one's April so kindly lent me after they raided my purse.
I have mostly given up the diet/lifestyle change after thirty days, (more lenient, really) eating both healthy and unhealthy food (and now suffering a headache from pasta) but I still have soda kicked. Just need to drink water more often. Still taking my pills. I've put on a little weight, but not enough to be alarmed. I just hope I can get better at this. Exercise more, too. The daily photos have stopped as well, but that's fine. Ashamed to say I missed the comfort foods of alfredo pasta and pizza with gooey cheese. Still need my veggies though, lol.
Jen invited me to donate Plasma Saturday. If I had a regular ride, I could do it more often but I hope to go at least this once and make twenty bucks. I just hope I have enough Iron this time.
Mom is not home yet. Zackary is staying here but I haven't seen him all day. What started out as a VERY hot sunny day has ended in a violent storm outside. Typical Florida weather. Grandpa left somewhere. Mema and Papa are well, Praise the Lord. She seems very much herself again, from what I hear. So much so, that Grandpa thinks she doesn't have Alheimers after all.
7:41 p.m. Spent some time drawing and then went for the short drive with Grandpa to get Zackary. We're back now. I don't know why I kept thinking he's thirteen going on fourteen. He's turning fifteen. His voice is already changing. If his mother were still here, she'd be so proud.
EDIT: Zackary let me play his ATV game and we tried to watch some movies, but I had the worst migraine..which I know was directly caused by several days of pizza and pasta. It was a hard night's sleep. Zack let me get ahold of April and the Okcupid guy I told you about towards the internet issue.
All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
