I didn't get up as quickly as I had planned. My phone buzzed at 10:00 a.m., as I was suppose to get up and finish folding my clothing, but I didn't get up until around 11:00 a.m. I did finally get up and call my mother, as scheduled, but she wasn't home. So I told my Aunt C. that I would call my mother back in about 20 minutes, since she was at the store.
I got dressed and did my normal morning things, as I usually do. I folded a bit of my clothing, when I realized that I really needed to go through my whole wardrobe and get rid of all the clothing that I really don't wear any more. I didn't have to be at Christy's house until around 12:45 p.m., so we could go to the Blue Fusion fun day that started at 1:00 p.m.
I finally called my mother back, and we talked for about 20 minutes. Her voice sounded funny, as she was just getting over having laryngitis. It seems that my mother has nothing but health problems lately, it being high blood pressure or something dealing with her ears and vertigo. I told that I found the prefect dress for Ren Faire this year, as well as I tried on a size 4 wedding type of dress and it fit! She said that she was very proud of me, that I have lost so much weight, and that I am back to my “fit” self. But she warned me about focusing on my weight too much that I end up becoming anorexic. She told me that my weight as it is right now, it just perfect for me, and I shouldn't try to lose anymore weight. I told her that I would watch myself and make sure that it doesn't get out of hand. She told me that my health is very important, because it can only go down hill from here, as I am seeing regarding my Dad and her health.
I got to Christy's to find her and her children waiting for her. I warned Brianna, that if I found out that she didn't listen to her mother, or didn't report in after school, like she did the night before, I would make sure that I didn't take her to something like this again. I also told her that something like this is a reward for being good and listening to her mother, as I didn't have to take her anywhere as this is something I told her mother about. Brianna said she understood, but I wonder how long it would last.
I had never been to Blue Fusion before, but it was so much fun. They had to spin the wheel to see what they won. They both won a $5.00 gift card to play the games, but there there two other gift, which one was food at the snack shop, but I didn't hear what the other one was. There were all types of token games that spat out reward tickets that you could then turn in and exchange for little things in the reward shop. I ended up buy myself a $10.00 gift card, so I could play the games too. I almost won an Nintendo DS, as I took my finger off the button to soon, to cut it from the overhang. It was 50 cent a pop to play so spend a bit of it trying to win, until I just gave up. I played games which allowed me to get reward tickets, which I had earned a 105 of them and I split them between Jesse's and Bri's so they could have extra to get something from the reward shop. They had a mini bowling alley for older kids and adults, and a ultra small bowling alley for very young children. They had a ball city, where children under a certain height could go in and shoot soft balls from cannons, and pop them around with various air powered tubes . They had soft bridges and hidey-holes to play in. In order for Jesse to play in Ball City, I made a donation of a $1.00, which was nice since the original price was $5.00 per child. Brianna wasn't interested at this point, as she spent her $5.00 card,decorated her paper Easter bag, and already gotten her picture taken with the Easter bunny like Jesse did. She took off with her mother's phone, while the rest of us still had fun. We were there until about 3:00 when Jesse and Bri were getting hungry. I told them we were done, then as I wasn't buy them a meal in this place at this time. I told them maybe we could come again, and had a meal or something, once Christy was working again.
On the way to Christy's we talked about how much fun it was and we would have to go again. It was a very lovely time. Christy showed the picture of both of her children on the Easter Bunny's lap to anyone that would see them. She even showed her landlord. I remembered while I watched mothers, and couples take their children to get their picture taken with the Easter Bunny, I realized how much I would have enjoyed it if I had a child of my own. I watched at one point of playing games, a mother guide a little boy on the Whack-A-Shark game. It was so cute, as he had to be around 2 or 3 years old.
When we got to her house, I went into the living room and rested for a bit, as I was a bit tired. Then watched Jesse eat a nutty bar and then get a can of Mountain Dew. He opened it, and I told him to hold on. I told him to go make a sandwich, before he drank any of it. He complained, but Christy told him to make one, as I said. I told her that I watched him eat a nutty bar, and then get a soda. All he has eaten is sugar, and it isn't good for him. He did make a sandwich and eat it, while he downed a whole soda. He glared at me for a while, but I told him that all that sugar is not good for him. I am getting the impression more and more, that Christy doesn't really care what her children eat, as she doesn't make sure they eat properly and healthy. At Blue Fusion, she didn't even know how much her son weighed or how tall he was. I told her that it was important for her to know, as it is her son, and she should know critical things like that. I can't wait to find out how much he weighs, since I think he is nearing the subject of being obesity due to his age and height. I know for a fact, he doesn't eat well, and he doesn't get enough exercise for his age. He wants to play video games all the time or just watch TV. At least when I take Christy and him places, he is getting out and getting a bit of exercise.
I spent the majority of the day hanging out with Christy and when 7:30 came around, I didn't leave to go to see the movie. I was enjoying myself watching movies at Christys. I brought a couple of my own movies from my house, so they would have something different to watch, since I haven't rented any new movies since I returned my last ones. While I was there, I read some of my book, as well as worked on ripping out the seams on striped shirt that Christy wanted me to working into a frilly apron to wear over her skirt that I bought her for Ren Faire. I worked on that most f the time, and I realized that I probably should have brought my reading glasses, as it would have helped put less strain on my eyes doing something so intricate as ripping out tiny little seams. LOL
When Christy made dinner, I bowed out again, as I told her that I would eat later, as I was too busy doing (ripping out seams). I would have not wanted to eat what she made any way, as it wouldn't have been something that I would wanted to eat. She made an egg scramble, which couldn't be so bad, but I would have put veggies in it. She made it was eggs, cut up cheese filled sausage, hash browns, and cheese. It smelled good. I am sure if I would have made it, I would have added diced green pepper, diced onion, and diced tomato. I probably would have left the cheese, and the sausage, since it would be a nice treat. I find myself judging Christy's choice of dinners that she feeds her family. I don't do it verbal way, but I do it in my head, as a way to keep my self on my toes when it comes to eating healthier now. I find out most of Christy's issue is that she serves a lot of meals like the guy did, (meat and pasta mixed together). Christy loves to make Hamburger helper meals or homemade ones like it. She very rarely makes a vegetable with her dinner. I have seen her do it once in a while, but it isn't a stable. So she isn't eating a well balanced diet and nether is her son. I noticed that she used a lot of hamburger, as well as pasta. I have seen that she doesn't make her son eat his meal much. It just ends up getting shoved in the fridge uneaten, but later, he get something that is unhealthy for him, like a bowl of sugary cereal, a hot pocket or a corn dog.
I finally got home around 11:00 p.m. Mekong was happy about it. I took a really long shower and enjoyed the hot water that coursed down my body. I brushed my skin with the warm, to invigorate my skin and dispel any toxins that are trying to escape from my skin. After I got out, I put on some Sesame seed oil to my skin, as it was feeling a bit dry, regardless on how much water I have been drinking.
I have to say that my body is looking very nice. I know that I shouldn't think about it, but I wonder if the guy would even care that I have motivated myself to change how I look since November of last year (2010). The change that I have made really has affected my confidence for the better.
Well, after my shower, I put in a movie, and settled down in bed, to have Mekong raid my affections, until she settled down as well, and I fell asleep. I don't know when I fell asleep, as I was doing a bit of reading and watching the movie then listening to it. All I do know is that I was feeling really content and happy.
