Interesting Evening Last Night

July 15th, 2014 at 08:05 am

So my officially official SO is leaving tonight for a week, so I'm hoping to make up for some of the financial damage I've been doing by making this a No Spend Week. I'm not exactly off to the best start. This is pretty much one long story leading to why I have to spend money on lunch today despite buying groceries last night. So if you're short on time, that's the gist of it. If not, read on!

Since SO is leaving today, I wanted to see him last night. My schedule is pretty hectic during the week with babysitting 3 nights and cheer the other 2. I was going to have him over after babysitting, but decided to check with the parents to make sure they were okay with it. While the dad had no opinion, the mother seemed uncomfortable with the idea, so I volunteered to go to his place if they could just be home about 10 so it wouldn't be super late when I got there. Since the MIL is in town, the mom said it'd be fine to leave them once they were in bed. I went through their bedtime routine and packed my work clothes and cheer practice clothes for today and left. About an hour later, I get a panicked call asking where the younger one was because he wasn't in bed. After 15 minutes and a few more panicked phone calls, they found him sleeping on the dining room chairs (there's a tablecloth on the table draping down a bit, so they didn't see him the first time going through the house). It'll be interesting to see how things are handled in the future since this scare. Normally, my hours end somewhere between 9 & 10 depending on bedtime. When I was single, I usually just destressed and went to bed, so it didn't matter if the parents stayed out late because I was home. Now, they will have to decide between their date nights and just allowing him over.

Anyways, back to the lunch thing. In my packing, I completely forgot to account for food for today, so even though I have plenty at home, I will need lunch and dinner. Since I go straight to cheer from work, I'll need something to last me until 9 tonight. While I'm normally the type to eat every 3-4 hours, I'm going to try going for a big, filling lunch and toughing it out until I get home.

    That IS interesting. It sounds like they realize it's not your responsibility to stay with the kids after hours, so hopefully no tension will arise from this. They've really just had free extra babysitting up until now, huh? Smile

    Ceejay, essentially yes. Like I said, I had no problem with it since I would be home anyway and they were asleep, so I didn't have to do anything extra with them. We'll see where it goes from here.
