Saturday & Sunday

Slept ok Friday night. Reluctantly got up early Saturday morning to get ready to go to Festival Foods for our Cub Scouts Show & Sell for popcorn sales. At least I had a couple people I was expecting to come and help, but there were really hardly any responses. Managed to get parked on SL and drink a bit of coffee before heading out.

Overall we didn’t do too bad. We were there 3 hours and did $215 in sales. For as many people as there were shopping there that morning, I would like to have seen higher numbers. Casey and I did take a break about halfway through to run to McDonald’s for breakfast. I offered to pick up food for the others, but they said no. I should have, though! The female scout asked if she could have some of the pancakes, and Casey said he didn’t mind sharing.

After we got home from there, I worked on some laundry. I had to finish up the towels, my laundry, Casey’s laundry, and the sheets off my bed. I didn’t finish everything by the end of the night, I was worn out after flipping and rotating my mattress and pad and putting fresh sheets on my bed. Oh, and I’d also scooped the cat’s litter box. At least dinner was just leftovers, so I didn’t have to cook. After eating, I got in the shower, since I’d been working hard all day at one thing or another. I was really quite pleased with myself, considering how my knee had been several weeks ago. I’m recovering quite well! Sure, some bad days here and there, but mostly I’m doing awesome!

Noticed later in the evening that Autumn had unfriended me on Discord. I logged into Aura Kingdom just long enough to see she hadn’t removed me there. I also then logged into Minecraft to remove her from the realm. The way she’d said that she’d “do it again” in reference to killing ALL the animals, I don’t feel comfortable with her having access. I’m trying to be all like “whatever” about it, but really I’m quite upset. I’ve lost my best friend.

After getting Casey to bed, I watched an episode of Criminal Minds. That was so good, I ended up watching another. I thought I would have been ready for bed after the first one, but wasn’t. Then after the 2nd I still felt kinda awake. But, I didn’t want to try and watch anything else, for fear it’d keep me up longer still. So, I scrolled Facebook for a while, then TP’d home on Second Life and got changed. That took me about an hour, because I wanted to wear a new outfit that I hadn’t unboxed, and it turned out to be a ton of boxes.

Finally got to bed a little after midnight. Slept ok, but really didn’t want to get out of bed Sunday morning. Dave came in a little after 9 asking if I wanted to go to breakfast with him and some friends of the family, or if I wanted to sleep in. I inwardly groaned but said I wanted to go with, so I got up and got dressed.

Breakfast was nice, we hadn’t seen Doug and Tresa in some time so it was nice to catch up. We sat at the restaurant chatting for quite some time. Casey was pretty well behaved for that! I mentioned doing the Show & Sell the day before, and they said they wanted to buy some popcorn. They bought the double butter microwave popcorn, but split half with us! And then they paid for breakfast! I offered to at least split the check, but they said no. I didn’t have any cash on me to split the popcorn, either. We felt bad that they were treating us, but they wouldn’t hear of us spending any money lol.

After we got back home from breakfast, I got on SL to park and worked on my free book & paid emails. I didn’t have a lot of time to relax, but enough. It was kinda icky weather, so I wasn’t really sure if anybody would come for the door-to-door sales. One other parent said they’d come to my house, and one said they’d go to the other location we’d decided on. I heard from Joe just as Sheldon and I were getting ready to head out to start, nobody had shown up at the soccer fields. So, we waited for him to arrive and went out. Funny enough, same crowd as the day before. We did really well, another $110 in sales in less than an hour! After we were done, we rewarded everybody with hot cocoa for the kids and coffee for the parents.

Once everybody had left, I relaxed for a short while then left to drop the popcorn off at Scott and Sara’s house. Turns out I was supposed to drop it off the day before, but we actually had taken it with us for the door-to-door anyway, so it worked out. I asked Sara if we could take it with us on the 28th as well, and she said that’d be fine. Scott, the actual Pack leader, walked out to their garage where we were talking at just that time, and said yeah that they have better luck when they have popcorn available. So, at least we’d have a plan. I told them I was still going to have next Sunday on the calendar for more door-to-door, but that I would need to rest myself. Whoever shows up can split into groups (if there are enough to) and I provided the street names for 2 residential-looking streets. That town doesn’t have any Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts, so it’s like an “untapped market.”

Once the leftover popcorn and money was dropped off, I went to Peking to pick up some Chinese for dinner. I wasn’t really hungry yet myself, but we had no other plans for dinner and I was tired and didn’t feel like cooking. I’d eat it at some point, just not right away.

While Dave at dinner, I emptied the dishwasher, then played a few rounds of Uno with Casey. He helped me fold laundry between a couple of hands. Then I got him to sit on the toilet. Dave and I talked and agreed that he could sit on the toilet with his tablet, because he’d been a good boy. But, he doesn’t get his tablet back, it was just a special circumstance. Hopefully he understands that tomorrow when he gets home from school, I don’t want any incidents.

Now Casey’s doing his bedtime stuff while I monitor stuff in SL. I received my first application just a few minutes ago for a possible server on the Cafe side, and have another person I’m talking with walking them through some things. The person I’m helping has only been on SL about a week, but I don’t mind helping new people. They seem nice enough so far.

I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to try and find something to do on SL or if I’m going to watch some Harlots. Either sounds like a nice enough option right now, as long as I end up in bed at a reasonable time.
