Urgh! So, this weekend, I did the Black Friday morning thing with easy child so she could get the comforter she wanted for her dorm ($30). I also drove her 1.5 hours away on Sat to catch a ferry so she could visit her dad without using up her gas and then back home ($10) plus gave her the fare money ($15). Then I drove with H to drop off HER car at our mechanic's house about 15 miles away ($5). Then yesterday morning, H and I drove back to the mechanic's house and paid nearly $600 in repairs so that she would have a winter safe car to take back to school. Then last evening, at 6PM, I drove back to the ferry 1.5 hours away and picked her up again ($10). Well, after I picked her up she mentioned something about wanting to get her dad a coffee maker at Walmart, so I offered to stop on the way home and we did. She didn't have any money, so I offered to cover it for her and did ($20). While at Walmart she mentioned that she saw a cute little bed set that she would rather have than the one we bought on Friday and showed it to me. I bought that for her ($38) and will likely keep the original one I bought on Friday at 6AM for difficult child's room - no biggie. I just called her (easy child) and asked her if she was going out to do her errands and she is. So, I asked her if she could please bring me (I am at work) the leftover turkey soup in the fridge for my lunch...it is already 1:30 here...I was late getting out this morning and forgot it. And she says, are you ready? "God MOM! I have no idea when I'm going to be leaving work....why can't you just get something out? Jeesh! <insert lots of sighs and groans>" Well, my apologies Dear Queen! I had no idea that asking this one little favor was going to put you out so much. My word, my office is only 10 minutes from our home, and 3 minutes from where she will be. You'd think that she would have gladly brought her mother some freakin soup, you know? And to think I was starting to miss her already (she leaves for school on Friday)!!
