I spent the whole morning yesterday looking for my cane. I couldn’t find it. That meant that Gregory and I weren’t going out. I can go to the playground with out it, but into the big world of busses and things like that, no.
Turns out it was in Cullen’s car, at his work, with him. That did me a lot of good --- not. Sorry, I feel a bit sarcastic this morning.
Anyway, after all that searching I was tired and hungry. I made Gregory and I some mac and cheese and then we took a nap. I slept for an hour, but Gregory continued sleeping. I took care of some things and put dinner in the oven.
Gregory woke up.
Cullen got home.
We all ate.
Then, we went to Chuck E. Cheese.
Cullen did the running around after Gregory. Which was great because I usually do that and I got to sit and rest. I feel like I am tired all the time.
The resting led me to daydream about how insane it will be for me to try to take two children to Chuck E. Cheese instead of just one. Being blind I have a very hard time keeping track of just Gregory in that place. The one thing that keeps me calm is they always check to make sure the person who brings the child in is the only one who can take the child out. They do this by stamping both the child and parent’s hands with the same stamp. Then check it before exiting.
Well, at least Gregory will be four and a half, before the one in my tummy starts walking. I am hoping age four is easier than age three. I am sure it has challenges too though.
Many of the games at Chuck E. Cheese have been changed and upgraded. It is a lot nicer. Cullen had not seen it since the changes. I had, because I usually just take Gregory there on my own. One of the excitements is usually the bus ride to get there. Cullen drove last night though.
So, Cullen and Gregory ran around having fun. Gregory had an accident, because a three year old has better things to do at Chuck E. Cheese than to remember to pee. When I take him after about 15 minutes we go to the bathroom, just in case. With Cullen and Gregory having run off I forgot to mention this little detail to Cullen, oh well he will know for next time.
Then Cullen came back to the table and told me about a new “deal or no deal game”. He wanted me to try it. So I did. Instead of winning money you could win tickets. Top tickets you could win were 40. The few times I have seen this game show the game was very similar to the show.
I picked my case #7 as “THE ONE”. Then I got to the end and I hadn’t taken any deals. My case and the other case were left. My final deal was 21 tickets. There were 3 tickets in one case and 40 in the other. I figured why not and I didn’t take the deal. Turns out the case I picked in the very beginning was the big winner. I won 40 tickets. That was awesome. I couldn’t believe it.
Turns out with Cullen helping Gregory and my forty tickets we ended up with 100 total. Cullen mentioned cotton candy. Then he said oh that is 150 tickets so we couldn’t get it. Gregory saw a mini plastic ball and bat. He wanted that. It was 80 tickets.
Cullen thinks the store manager was the one behind the counter. The man got out the mini ball and bat then pulled the cotton candy off the shelf and gave it to us.
I was surprised. The two together would have been 230 tickets and we only had 100.
Now that is what you call good customer service. Granted the two things together probably cost them less than a dollar to purchase. So they had their money’s worth from us.
When I take Gregory we usually only at most win 10 tickets and get a sucker right before we leave. So, last night was a big treat for Gregory. Not only did he get a bigger prize than a sucker, but he had Daddy running around with him too.
Yesterday started out rough and turned out much better than expected. I would have to say it was a pretty good day.
