I Had My Anxiety

It will be three years this July since I got my driver license. As far as myself driving the car I think I am doing a pretty good job behind the wheel. I haven’t driven the car trough a red light and most of all, I obey traffic signs and speed limits on the road. Being a driver can be annoying when the driver will cut in front of you only a few feet away and will drive slower than the speed limit. Also, it could be scary when the other driver is not paying attention to where they are going. 

Just recently, I was on my way home, first car on the stop light (one lane across) and the flatbed truck beside me was on the left turn lane only. When the lights turned green I drove across the other lane (straight & right turn only) when I noticed the flatbed truck just passed me by. It was too close when I realized I almost got in a wrecked if I haven’t stepped on the brake and honked at the other driver. Since he was also driving towards my lane even when he was on the left turn lane only and blinkers on. 

With this incident I had my anxiety, I was hardly able to sleep the night the day it happened thinking I might be in the wrong lane so I drove back the next day to checked it out. But anyway, I’m doing just fine since that nearly accident. I have been enjoying the warm weather despite muggy temperatures these past few days. My son Charles’ got to go to World’s of Fun when his dad took some of his wrestlers to a fun-filled day trip for the team but I didn’t go and stayed home instead. 

Well, I am glad Charles went to World’s of Fun as he kept on talking about his rides like The Mamba and the tallest roller coaster non-stop since they got back home. Looks like Charles really had fun this time around with a Fidget Spinner after the tallest ride on the roller coaster was such a delightful toy for him to have.

Honor Roll and an Outstanding Citizenship Award

What a great way to end Charles’ school year. Being on the Honor Roll in his class and an Outstanding Citizenship Award are everything parents always dream of for their children. I may not post on social media every accomplishments he has or sports he has played in the past but it doesn’t mean I am not very proud of him. Of course, Doug and I are so very proud of this little bugger. Just recently, Charles’ has been referred through the Talent Pool process for possible placement in the Gifted & Talented Program from his teacher. Not many kids gets this kind of opportunity and we are very grateful. 


Oh well, tomorrow is the last day of school so Charles is looking forward to this day so he could stay home watching YouTube videos or play on his X-Box and some Minecraft on the phone. Looks like Charles’ summer is pretty much doing the same stuff above aside from our trip to Texas to watch Indy Car race and the Iron Maiden concert in July. We could add World’s of Fun trip but I think Charles and I are just going to stay home while Doug takes his wrestling team for the fun-filled day with the kids. Honestly, I don’t like roller coaster or the thought of Charles riding one scares the hell out of me so I only prefer the Carousel ride.

IndyCar Race Tickets

With my son getting older I thought traveling would be a lot easier but it’s not what I thought it would be. While on our way to Little Rock, Charles’ asked his famous questions: How long until we get there? Are we there yet? Even if we’re still in Rogers he kept on asking these questions. Well, going to Little Rock was on our lists to do this summer as we watched the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert featuring Babymetal. 

Wow! I have never been to a concert in my life until I attended this one and I would say it won’t be my last concert to go to. I am really ecstatic to be a concertgoer who enjoys the music while the band was playing. I don’t mind the loud music blaring the Verizon Arena at all in fact I loved it! The sound of guitars and drums are just perfect specially when its playing live music and the crowd is going nuts. 

Too bad, I only knew one Red Hot Chili Peppers song which is Californication but they never sang it during the concert I could have sung-along with it haha. We all loved the concert the Babymetal was a huge hit with Charles. In fact he recorded some Babymetal performances on his phone. How much more when we attend the concert of Iron Maiden this July in Kansas City at Sprint Center, he’s a huge Maiden fan now and so am I. While in Little Rock, we ate at Flying Fish. I ordered Veracruz Snapper it tasted good as it looked on the menu plus it was a huge one. 

IndyCar Race Tickets

Veracruz Snapper

Well, next month we have another trip down to Fort Worth, Texas to watch an IndyCar Race. We already got our tickets back from the one that was rained-out as we didn’t go back when it was been re-scheduled last August. I am just amazed how the ticketing office was very accommodating to send us more tickets for this race. I can’t wait to visit Texas and eat at Rooster’s Roadhouse.

My Shopping Trips in the Past :)

While searching for body wash in my husband’s bathroom I realized I got stuff under the sink that has not been used. Mostly, I bought these items during annual sales from Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, and Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) to name a few of my favorite stores to shop. As I looked through inside the paper bag I was overwhelmed of how much I accumulated in my shopping trips in the past. I know I didn’t spend a fortune for all of these items as I like to buy them on clearance or after the season. My leg warmers are 80% off from DSW and the shoes are 70% off as well.

The other day when I shopped at Forever 21, there was a dress on the rack with 50% off discount but when I checked the receipt when I got back home there was no discount. So I went back the next day and returned the dress and bought different ones that are marked discounts so I end up buying more clothes for myself alone. With all the items from Victoria’s Secret shall be kept for awhile as I have not been using perfume in a very long time. Any fragrances makes me sneezes without even knowing I can get an allergic reaction from it.

Before, I used to have severe headaches, watery eyes, runny nose until I went to see a doctor and stopped using any fragrances that’s when I began feeling so much better.
