Happy Groundhog Day!! Now what is the story … if the groundhog sees his/her shadow, then??? I can never remember. I bet the people who know are the ones who have birthdays on Feb 2.
I wonder how I can make my life uneventful? Or will there ever be an uneventful day. The day started as such. Remember that Rob came out of the hospital yesterday. Good patient. Could walk around. He woke up this morning feeling the shtz. Feverish. Nauseous. Dizzy. Light headed. So he phoned the doctor’s office and they said .. go to the nearest ER. So we did. Luckily we got there before the rush or else it would have taken 8 hours longer. As it was, we were there for 4 hours. In between that, my washer and dryer were being delivered. Somehow I knew the timing would be off and sure enough it was. Left Rob in the hospital and went home to receive my new appliances.
All that went well. I paid to get my old ones moved out and to also get them hooked up. Since my BBBB (Bionic Big Baby Boy) is not functioning these days and I need to do laundry, Trail Appliances did it for me (for a minimal cost). The guys were great. Mac and Bobby. I think they knew who I was (aka Amanda Todd’s mom). I ended giving them bracelets before they left. Both guys (who I had never met before today) wanted to give me hugs. They were sorry about Amanda’s story. They were sad that it happened. Everyone has their own story (including these two persons). I don’t think Mac knew at first where he was but when he found out, he came back to my door and asked for a hug. It was so sweet. We then talked about the way he had been bullied in a previous job. Not good. Why does it happen? Don’t people know that it damages others for a long time. Sometimes forever. Mac is very happy where he works now. He described his company as very family oriented as well as kind and caring. He loves going to work every day now. Family christmas party for kids and then a separate one for adults. I love hearing about stories like that. I also love that people are sharing their stories. I ended up giving both persons more bracelets to hand out to their families. So proud to be Amanda’s mom….
In the evening, between cooking, picking up prescriptions, etc… I went down to the skating arena to see some kids. It was a good time. Met and talked to lots of girls and even the odd boy. I hope that all those girls had a good night and stayed out of trouble. I wonder who else did what the boy did and got honked at for. I love talking to kids that want to talk to me. I am not sure what they see other than ‘That’s Amanda Todd’s mom’. But that is not what they think. I am glad that they still reach out to me. Imagine being invited out to somewhere they are going to be. Doesn’t happen very often.
I am starting to fall alseep typing. I can hear most of you saying right now, GO TO BED!! I will. Just have to finish.
I have to order more bracelets. 3000 vs 4000. Hard one to figure out. But I didn’t expect the second box to go soon.
I wonder what tomorrow will bring. Oh right … the movie Bully is being shown anywhere. I am there to watch the movie, listen to the speakers and then lead the walk to the Olympic torch site. Hope there are many people attending.
Gotta run. Gotta sleep. Hugz …
PS – I love you xoox
