Last night was Jacob’s band concert at his school. It was nice because it was only the band students from his school, not all the schools in the area like it was last time. And since it was such a small group, each child got to play a short solo. Jacob was awesome.
Since, I didn’t want to embarrass Jacob, I actually wore jeans instead of my usual sweatpants or yoga pants.
I don’t wear jeans a lot for two reasons. First, I can never find a pair that fit me correctly. My hip and thigh ratio is not proportionate to my waist ratio. So, every time I find jeans that I can get over my hips, they’re too big in the waist. Or if the waist fits, they’re too baggy in the butt. Or if they fit everywhere, they’re too short. It’s a never-ending battle, and I’m not willing to spend $100 on a fancy pair of jeans.
Second, I might have gained a couple of pounds in the last year and the jeans I do own might be a bit too snug. Yeah, I’m currently working on that problem. I’ve never really had good luck with jeans.
So, on the way home from the concert yesterday, I told Danny that I couldn’t wait to get home and change out of my jeans.
Do you know what he said?
He said, what are you going to do when you get a real job, and you have to wear business clothes.
My head quickly swiveled towards him, as red daggers shot out of my eyes.
Listen, buddy, last time I checked, being responsible for the lives of two children and making sure that they grow up to be decent, responsible adults, as well as being responsible for the lives and well-being of other people’s children is a real job. And a lot harder than sitting behind a desk all day.
But I decided to play along, (but only because he found me a package of snickerdoodle muffins at the little party after Jacob’s concert). I told him that when I got a real job, I’d probably teach exercises classes, so I’d be wearing sweatpants anyway. And they’d pay me for it. So there.
Backing up to the snickerdoodle muffins. Aren’t those exciting? Snickerdoodle is one of my favorite cookies, so I can’t wait to try the muffins!
When we got home from the concert, I put on my sweatpants and lounged on the couch. Jeesh.
This morning, I had a 9 am dentist appointment for a check-up on my wisdom tooth. I was sure that he was going to tell me that it was infected and I was dying, but no. He said that I was fine and gave me this:
A creepy looking syringe to rinse my gums out. Gee, thanks. I’m dying of pain, and you give me a stupid syringe?! He said that the pain was normal, and should subside this week. I told him that he was probably wrong.
We were at the dentist for 3 minutes, and I still made it to my 9:10 am Cardio Fit & Tone class, only five minutes late. There was six people in class this week, compared to the two people last week. The instructor said that they’re thinking about changing the class because the enrollment is so low. But I like the class. It’s a great mixture of cardio and toning using various equipment.
After the gym, Jaden and I stopped at the grocery store. While we were there, we saw the best holiday candy ever.
Jelly beans are a close second. I have a jelly bean addiction, and eat way too many during the Easter season. Like bags and bags of them. It’s a problem. Hopefully, I can control it this year.
Later this afternoon, I’m taking Jaden for his allergy shot and then tonight is kindergarten registration.
And tomorrow morning, I’m getting my the mole on my back removed and stitched up. I’m not looking forward to it.
Questions of the day:
What’s a real job? Do you have a real job? Where can I get one of these real jobs that I’ve been hearing so much about?
Do you ever want to punch your significant other in the face? (joking! kinda)
