I almost had to spend money today...

I was at my Sisters packing today when we got the call to go pick up my nephew from school. They got back sooner then we were expecting (from a wrestling tourney), so we jumped in the car and took off. I was hungry and knew I was going to be in trouble if I didn't eat soon. There was no time to grab food though because we were already going to be late. The coach can't leave until every kid is picked up. On the way home from picking him up I got extremely dizzy and started seeing extra lanes (not such a good thing when you're driving). Then I felt like I was going to throw up. Unfortunately I was on a stretch of road where there are no side streets and no shoulders. If I stopped the car I'd be in the middle of the street and I figured that was worse then continuing to drive. I knew my blood sugar was off and that I was in trouble. There was no time to wait - I needed food and I needed it now. There was a McDonalds up ahead, so I pulled in. I would have to spend money on food because I had no other choice. And food that I didn't really want to eat. Sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do.

My purse was in the back seat though, so my sister handed me money to pay for it. I sold something for her that got picked up today and she used that money. She said that was my commission! haha!

Glad I made it there safely and that I didn't do something that could have harmed Mackenzie. A little worried that my Hypoglycemia seems to be getting worse and it was already bad enough to begin with :( And super glad my sister paid for my food since I've already spent too much on eating out this month!!!


  1. Glad you got some [free] food in you! That's scary! Next time make your sister drive. ;)

  2. Oh trust me...If we weren't locked in I would have pulled over and let her drive. By the time I could pull over the feeling had passed and the McDonalds was a block away.
