My mom rarely has bad ideas. Today she had a majorly bad one.
In case you were curious, Mom on crutches, me a week post-surgery, and Blake going to Sam's and buying a whole carload of groceries across a giant warehouse is a recipe for disaster. I almost had a seizure from being so hot and exhausted from doing all the loading and dealing with Blake. Mom made her knee pain a lot worse by trying to deal with Blake when I was on the floor. Blake had a massive meltdown that lasted for a very long time. Even Mom admitted this was a majorly bad idea.
We had Blake because Chelsea was cleaning our house. So then we got home and I had to do almost all the unloading because Chelsea is Chelsea and all the putting away because Mom took Chelsea and Blake home and then I collapsed.
On the upside, Mom gifted me a pedicure. The massage chair + the leg massage they do with the pedicure + getting my feet scrubbed all clean made me a very happy girl. God bless her.
Plus we had to get stuff from Food Lion. But at least Mom's boyfriend's daughter went with her there so I didn't have to because she had to get stuff for their house, too. There was only a little bit for me to unload from there.
And then I fell asleep in the recliner.
But I'm still so exhausted. That was way too much work for me. It probably didn't help that I didn't sleep much last night from random new pain that set in. So at least I won't have trouble sleeping tonight.
