Wait, I forgot to add what happened Friday at Pooka's school. I get there and I am put in charge of the bean bag toss. Pooka's class is divided into groups and they have a certain amount of time in each little station. One station would be making a treat or treat bag, pumkin bingo, decorating cookies, etc) . I get my first group of kids and this little black girl is in the front of my line and decides to speak...
"Are you Pooka's mom?"
"Yes, thank you"
"No, your really fat"
"Yes, thank you I appriciate it"
"Your brown too"
Then the little white girl behind her chimmed in and said she thought I was pretty. That helped heal my wounds a tad. I mean I was just insulted by a 5 year old! I was so taken off gaurd that thank you was the first thing to come out my mouth. In hind sight I should have told her how those are not nice things to say even if it's the truth or should have jacked her up on the side, but I didn't. So yeah, I am going to by me some more rabbit food tomorrow. Now back to the original post, I just had to document that convo for the future.
I came home from my trip to find a new little bud beside my aloe vera plant! This hoochie done had a baby when I rolled out! I am so proud of me being able to keep a plant alive! I've failed miserably in the past. LOL
How was my trip? Nice. It rained all night Friday and the fog didn't help the drive either, but we made it with no prob. I drop Pooka off with my mom and go a friends house to change and get ready for the Scorpio party at Love night club. Before I hit the shower I was informed that basically I was going with 2 couples. I really wasn't in the mood to play odd wheel out so I went to Babydaddys. Long story very short. We tried to go there and it just wasn't working. It's like the combinations on our locks changed or something. Don't get me wrong it felt fine physically, it just wasn't right. I decided to leave vs. spending the night. The feeling that I wasn't supposed to be there was just too strong. It was the perfect night too! Cold, rainy, no children....oh well. I knew I made the right choice to leave because when I got in the car I felt so much better.
When I got home, Pooka was sleep in my grandfathers room. I walked in the room and it hit me....he is really gone. It was like someone struck me in the chest. He's gone, no more, for real. I got in the bed w/Pooka, finished my moment, and fell asleep. It was some greeeeat sleep. My grandmother brought him a very nice bed, no wonder he never wanted to get out of bed! LOL Funny but not funny...anyways
Saturday was planned for family so Pooka and I enjoyed and lavished in my mom and grandmothers presence. I talk to them often but it's nothing like being physically in their presence, even if we are just watching tv in silence. Aunt Diva came through and wanted to go to the mall. Surprise surprise! LOL We ended up getting a tour of Howards campus (like I never seen that campus b4) and other places. I sorta think she just wanted to show her new BMW SUV off a tad and to see how things work. She is still getting used to the truck. It doesn't handle like her old one. We did go by my favorite store that sells fat girl clothes for cheap only to find out that they are gone!!!!!! Moment of silence please.......................thank you. Now where am I supposed to get my stuff from? That store was my little secret!
One thing that was really cool was that we all slept in the living room last night. I knew my grandmother wasn't gonna make it through the night laying on a pilot but that was awesome that she did what she could. It's also cool that my grandmother is visiting people now! She has always been taking care of my grandfather even b4 he got really sick and never just went to a friends house just to hang out for her own social health. My mom says she's been visiting some dude too! I am going to leave that alone! I didn't ask my grandmother about him and who he is cuz I don't want the answers! LOL
I ran my mom to handle some business then said my goodbyes. Babydaddy asked if I would bring Pooka by again before we hit the hwy. She was over his house most of the day Saturday up until he had to go to work. So we go over and chill there for about an hour and then the most shocking thing happened, he gave me half my money back! *gasp* A good while ago I loaned him some money. I made him sign a contract so I get it back (I got that idea from a Luvin Me post). Since he is in school he is one of those folks that gets a crazy check because he is po...not poor, but po. So he gave me money out of that. I am still shocked. I wasn't expecting to see any money from him until tax time. Thank you God, amen.
After that he was asking some CRAZY questions about him being able to keep her for a year or two after her gets himself together! Uhhhhhhhhh NO! LOL! But nah, I don't want Pooka flip floppin' schools like that. Right now I am comfortable with the agreement that he will have her during summer break. I could change my mind because it's going to take him awhile to "get himself together" so by time that actually happens I may feel different. I doubt, it but I might.
The drive back was absolutely beautiful. There is nothing like being on a hwy with little to no traffic. The trees are sporting different colors and I had my cruising tunes going while the car was in cruise mode. I actually zoned out a few times but something always snapped me back into reality. *sigh*
Now reality says it's time to put Pooka down for the night. It feels so late, but it's not! YAY for the extra hour!
