Lol, let's post Random Thoughts here until THIS topic ALSO goes mysteriously missing!

Where DID our Random Thoughts thread/s go, anyway???

Hee! I was going to do this!

I just experimented scratching myself to see if it hurt worse on my arm or my head (Dandelion's thread). Ouch.

I've got the idiotic "Tulsa State Fair" song stuck in my head. Somebody shoot me.

I was so tired last night, I forgot to scoop the litterboxes before crashing. And yes, I got a present this morning.

My fingernails on my left hand are nice. Not so much my right hand. :?

BEST QUOTE EVER!!!!!

Just PM'd Taz for the 30 Stars Tat... can't wait to see it finished!

Are random thoughts always here, or do the manifest when we begin to post?

My Kitten/Pirate/Halloween shirt is peeling... stupid iron on :P

I've got a lovely bunch of Coconuts is a terrific song!

There is such a thing as doing too much hair in one day.

got some cute comfy jammies to wear at least

And a new purse.

Now if only Andromeda will relinquish my lap.

Still can't get those damned Disney princess songs out of my head.

How did the original Random Thoughts get deleted? A mystery.

Where are the Johnny Depp fans?

I go away for two months and everything falls to shit! :rofl: I crack myself up!

My daughter looks so beautiful pregnant, even though she's starting to feel as big as a house.

I have an awesome daughter-in-law!

I'm glad this thread is back.

A great big bird just flew past my window. I don't know what it was.

It's grey and gloomy out today. I wish it would rain or snow and get it over with.

The cats are being spazzes.

More coffee.

It's cool and sunny outside - my kind of weather!!

My hands hurt - I've discovered a new fascination - hand forging silver wire into jewellry. I'm making a bunch of earrings to donate to a fund raiser for a local school program. I hope they sell!

I've been off work since Friday and will be off tomorrow - damned mandatory furlough!! Short paycheck too, feh!

Wondering how long it will take the pixies to disappear this thred too.....

I need to run errands, but I don't want to.

I'm cold, but it's only October, too early to turn on the heater.

Plus, I'm afraid of exploding my house. Dad is out of town, and disasters always strike when he goes out of town.

I keep thinking I'm on vacation, but I'm not. Work is tomorrow.

I need to do dishes again. :roll: It never ends.

four super busy days of work have utterly sapped my strength

My granddaughter demanded Beauty and the Beast as soon as she hit the door. I do believe I can now quote the entire score in my sleep.

Is it ok to stay in my jammies all day? If not TOUGH!

I want a nap.

I need to do laundry and discover what strange things are lurking in the fridge, but I want to do the nap thing instead.

I'm freaking out because we're not just going to Mexico for two weeks, but more like 2 1/2, almost 3. I'm not afraid of going there, but that's the longest I've been away from home for decades. :shock:

I feel like I failed my poor rabbit, like if I had taken better care of him, he wouldn't have died. :cry:

I have so much to do this month, and unless I manage to stay out of character, the odds are that none of it will get done! :oops:

Washing my hair is becoming a chore again, even though it's not that long. I guess I need a haircut.

We went from summer to winter (for southern CA, that is) in a few days, weatherwise.

Ache all over - damn Fibromyalgia. Had to go grocery shopping and get my oil changed - just wore me out, it did.

Finally finished the jewellry project I've been working on. I'm charging my camera and will try to post pictures for the magpies.

Afternoon traffic on the freeways around here is crazeeee!!

Back to work on the morrow, yikes - my desk is probably covered with paperwork that needs to be done ASAP!!! :shock:

Need new front tires...one is really bad. Trying to hold on until stud season.

Have to get an account at the tire store for 4 studded tires. BIG tires (16") so the bill will be huge. UGH!

Also need chains. Last year taught me how important chains are.

Having pot stickers and spring rolls for dinner. So yummy, so fattening.

I hope tomorrow is an easier day at work.

Too many cats

05-10-2009 21:09:38

For 'some' reason, I am not a bit tired right now. :?

Maybe it's the steroids I'm on now.


Sometimes I wonder if I am a freak because I have so many cats.


I dont think the enclosure is going to be big enough now.


I've never met anyone like my neighbor. She's so hateful.

grimalkin

Had some hot milk; maybe that will help eventually.

It pains me to see you.

I'm glad I did though.

I think falling in love is a disease.

I feel like everything I say or do is completely s-tupid around you.

Why do you have to be so beautiful?

Cold shower...

oops that's six.

Colleen is off to Egypt tomorrow. Lucky bitch! I hope she has lots of fun.

Beautiful fall day today. This my favorite season.

Kitties have been extra cuddly at night. Spud got on the wrong side last night and almost pushed me out of bed. :roll:

Hubby went to the Dr today. He has Type 2 diabetes. *sigh* Now I must become the food police. *sigh*

The change in diet will be good for both of us. *sigh*

grimalkin

Slept badly again last night.

I see my doctor today. I hate going. It's an hour drive there and back for a twenty minute appointment.

I hate getting out of bed. That's the only place I feel safe.

Ready for this week to be over.

I was so grumpy yesterday I could barely function.

I need to call Mom and take back my rant.

I've been eating way too much sugar. It's stress, and nothing else sounds edible, but it's still too much.

It's cold and wet, so the cold goes right to my bones.

I feel oogey.

Have to go out and clean the rubber bands out of my car so I can vaccum it tomorrow.

Chandra is driving my Mom and I to the baby shower on Sat in my car. My Mom claims to be nearly blind. The first time she saw my new car, she asked if that tiny scratch on the door was there when I got it! I didn't even know it was there. :roll:

That was all she said about my car, too. Saturday should be a treat. She's sitting in the back!

Going to my MIL's this weekend. Thankfully my BIL and his woman won't be there. Couldn't do another week-end like the last one. I'm pretty well medicated but they drive me nuts!

One more day of work and then 3 days off. WooHoo!

I shouldn't have eaten that ramen soup this late because now I'm too full to go bed just yet. :roll:

I've really got to stop taking such long naps in the afternoon, it's messing up my biological clock.

Green tea with ginseng and honey is really good! :D

I want to buy another Tarot deck.

I got invited to Paula's family's October Birthdays party (in their family, this month the birthdays are: her sister, her neice, I think her nephew, and her birthday was the 18th). I think her oldest daughter will be there, as well as the neice who lives in Hawaii.

Hubby and I got invited to go camping on Saturday night with his friends. We don't need to bring anything...except we have to buy a tent and maybe sleeping bags. I hope it's not too cold.

I had a nice long conversation at the dog park today, with a lady who knows my doggie friends' "mommy."

I think I'm done with my friend's Excel project--for this year (maybe).

I actually made dinner tonight, and had everything get done close to the same time (Stepdad is sick, and just had soup).

It's gone bloody cold and rainy. In fact, I swear I was caught in a brief sleet shower a couple of hours ago. In October? I think we're in for a hard winter, no matter what the weathermen say.

Gabs really enjoys her new drama class.

Barney has a new dog bed. Enya thinks it's hers. Poor Barney, pwned by a cat.

Think I've successfully negotiated a 3 day working week with my boss. It's a drop in money, but essential for my sanity.

Too many cats

09-10-2009 17:54:52

I have just been told by a family member I have a problem and I am a freak for having so many cats....and loving cats as I do. :cry:

^^"The more I know people, the more I love my cats!" could be the answer to that one!

OK so I ate actual food today, twice. And paid the price for it! WTF! When am I allowed to eat???

Finished the latest Diana Gabaldon book. And now there are cliffhangers which I will have to wait another 4-5 years to resolve! Damn that woman!

Ex hub may soon find out about my breast cancer. He'll be mad I didn't tell him myself. Wonder if I should let a friend tell him, to avoid any backsplash on me?

Fifth thought has gone for more ginger ale

Hubby is taking care of his mom tonight. I wouldn't care to do this on a regular basis, but being by myself occasionaly is nice.

I don't have to make dinner tonight. Just steaming some brussels sprouts and cauliflower. YUM!

Daughter's baby shower tomorrow. God help me, being in the car all the way to the city with my MOM! ARRRRGGGGHHHH! Taking plenty of anti-anxiety meds with me just in case. (For her safety :lol: )

I felt so busy today, running around trying to get things done. I don't do busy well. I hate being busy.

Did I mention we're going camping tomorrow?

When will I ever have time for gardening?

I wish the housecleaning fairy would come over to my house.

I hope Stepdad gets well soon (he's had a cold or the flu or something), not just so he can go out to eat with us on my birthday, although that is part of it. :wink:

Feel like crap. Headache, nausea, blech.

So, my blood sugar is messed up too.

I was going to take a nap, but dad decided that today is the day to change the oil in my car, which was nice of him, and I appreciate it, but no nap, and I feel like crap.

They had me working on inbound e-mails at work (helping overseas customers). I feel like a complete moron, but if I'm not trained in something, I'm going to ask questions....

I am alone at the keyboard!!!! Opps, I should probably whisper that in case Sahara wakes up and realizes I'm typing without him.

My neighbor who currently has four cats told me she's thinking about getting two more (her daughter's want girl kitties this time!) and anytime she mentions it to someone she says they give her a strange look. She also said they all think she's turning into a crazy cat lady; I told her there's nothing wrong with that!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wore my cat shoes to the shower today.

Everyone loved them, except the crazy lady.

Nicole said (proudly, I might add) "My Mom is the cat lady". She didn't say crazy...that was reserved for some one else. :lol: :lol: :lol:

But I would carry 'the crazy cat lady' label with pride. Doesn't bother me a bit!

Going to be REALLY cold tonight. Need to find another blanket for the kids and I. Hubby is still at his Mom's, so I'm missing a really warm body.

Wonder when the local Joanns opens on Sunday here.

Halfway tempted to drive to PA to the new Hobby Lobby, although that is a long drive to some place I have never been before and the Big Guy would have a heart attack if I tried that drive alone.

Think I will just go and see what time Joanns opens and work on coaxing him to drive me to PA next weekend.

Hobby Lobby is closed on Sunday here. :(

I'm not feeling so fluish today.

I'm getting really tired of hearing sirens. I can't wait until they build us a sound wall to drown out the expressway.

Why can't people clean up after their dogs? If I wanted to deal with giant piles of dogshit, I would have a dog.

Need to do something creative, but my hands are shot.

Oh yes Jus, I know haha. It's a shocker! I'm officially finished Efexor. Waited one day then switched to Prozac for the sole purpose of killing the side effects. Keep that in mind if you ever need to stop 'em, coz it works :D Will take Prozac for a week or two, then stop that as well. Gotta love looong half-lives!

Cold tonight...supposed to start raining tomorrow. Yay! I mean that in a positive way.

Got an email from a coworker telling my mail had been mis-directed on Sat., and Tues would be hell for me. He suggested having a sub work for me. I like how his mind works! :lol: Took him up on it! I'm bad. But I spent years working after holidays when I was a sub....it's usually a given.

Thai was soooo happy to see Daddy after 4 days. He's been his little love bug!

I'll be so glad to sleep in my own bed tonight, even though I only spent one night away. The bed at my MIL's is comfortable, but it doesn't have kitties.

Stood on the deck at MIL's last night and watched two deer eat apples from the tree right next to it. Cool!

All kitties are accounted for in the enclosure this morning.

(((((((Ruby)))))) I'm on same meds as you it gets better but don't forget to take one as that definitely blows chunks :?

Oh yes Jus, I know haha. It's a shocker! I'm officially finished Efexor. Waited one day then switched to Prozac for the sole purpose of killing the side effects. Keep that in mind if you ever need to stop 'em, coz it works :D Will take Prozac for a week or two, then stop that as well. Gotta love looong half-lives!



Thankyou for that excellent piece of advice will keep it in mind as last time I tried to come off, I got labyrinthitis which Drs initially thought was withdrawal from Effexor.

Away from keyboard for few days, no panic those of you who wonder where I'm at :D

The good news: going out to sign paperwork for divorce! Yay! Freedom is in sight!

Got a flyer on the door for a new hair salon. Hee hee! They put it on the door of a bald girl! Not getting any business from me anytime soon!

My allergies have decided to switch from nose running to eyes constantly watering. Unfortunately it makes me look like I'm crying all the time, not to mention what it does to makeup (when I try to wear it.) What the heck?!

Fifth thought has gone to ponder if I"d better off with a hood or an umbrella, given that wind?

I've been doing laundry all day--just things like sheets and towels and blankets. I like doing laundry; it's probably the only useful thing I'll do all day. :)

I thought about going out for lunch, but I'm already going out for dinner and I'm too lazy to go out right now. I think since my favorite restaurant is open on Sundays, I will go there for lunch then; Sunday would have been Paula's 47th birthday, and it was her favorite restaurant too.

We are leaving for Mexico in three weeks, and I have so much to do before then (some of it is stuff I don't have to do, but I really want to have it done before we go).

Paula's family really made me feel like part of the family at Sunday evening's party.

I wanted to work in the garden today, but it rained last night. I wish I would have had time to plant a bunch of stuff yesterday. It would have got watered!

Absolutely. Effexor side effects are far-reaching, and many! I'm gagging all the time, I'm not "sick" like I want to vomit, I just do the mechanical action of it haha. It sucks! But the Prozac lessens the headaches, nausea, dizziness, diarrhoea and 50+ extra side effects I'd normally feel!!!

GAH dust storm hanging around. Again. I want rain storms damnit! The laundry will have to go in the dryer :?

I got new litter boxes. Very high sided ones, as someone has decided to be an elevator butt (channeling Felina perhaps?).

I think I put too much goop in my hair. It's flat, but not full of static, so a win and a fail.

My back is killing me. My other joints are hurting as well. My meds don't do much for the back pain ever but don't seem to be doing all that much for the joints today.

That was a rather redundant observation.

So glad Vox is doing well.

Too many errands, I got home about 5 mins. before my hubby.

Glad I took my book to the tire store, it took an hour.

I'm reading 'Loving Frank", about Frank Lloyd Wright and one of his mistresses. I am obsessed with the man and his architecture.

I hope there is less mail tomorrow. Today sucked and when I got back to the office from my route, I had two Express packages waiting. Shit!

Most of his houses are considered 'prairie houses'. He was into using nature as his inspiration...lots of windows, high ceilings, massive rock fireplaces, sometimes having full sized trees growing in the house or hallways. Oh sorry, I tend to get carried away when it comes to FLW.
Lucky for the folks in your area that get to live in a home he designed.

Thought Les Schwab screwed something up when they replaced the battery. I had no dash lights this am, had to use a flashlight to get up to speed and use the cruise.

Finally have a few moments to get online. Hectic life, as usual. Ah well.

I have been breaking out like a 12 year old since I moved here, and it shows no signs of letting up. Not only is it embarrassing, but it HURTS.

About to head home. An hour and a half drive. Fun.

My parents just came last week for a visit, and just left. I had this incredible urge to go back with them. I miss them so much.

I am fostering a dog for a local rescue. She is a boxer/pit mix, I think. Came from the animal control in Texas city. Trying not to get attached. She is such a sweet girl. All she wants is affection, and the occasional Vienna sausage.

Today would have been Paula's 47th birthday. I have really missed her this weekend--could have really used a friend to girl-talk with.

I was very hormonal yesterday, and I think I might have had a hot flash, but it was probably a very small one, because I didn't have to change my shirt or anything.

I made Danielle (Paula's oldest) some chocolate chip cookies. Now I just have to figure out how to mail them.

I did a little housework and a little yardwork today, but it feels like a lot.

I almost didn't go to church today, because it was "Commitment Sunday," and all this talk about tithing and giving is kind of threatening to someone who is out of work. :(

And I just feel like shit to be honest. I'm not happy with my current situation and I am doing everything I can to possibly change it, but I just can't get a break.

I just want to eat comfort food, which is NOT good for me. Too much bread and cheese. Crap food really.

I got a nice Certificate of Excellence from the Praxis people. It seems that I placed in the top 15% of all test takers from previous years. Somehow, the discovery that I may be smart is messing with my internal reality.

I received some nice validation and encouragement from one of my professors yesterday. I think it was kind of off the cuff for him, but it meant quite a lot to me.

I've considered that many, many times. So far I just haven't been able to bring myself to do it. I know she'd never understand because she's never going to take responsibility for her actions. And I'm still too invested in not hurting her.

Long day ahead.

I keep thinking about posting a thread about what's up with me, but I don;t want to make myself so vulnerable.

We took a walk last night about 8 pm. Hope it's not raining this afternoon, we will go earlier.

I got so wet today, but I got the mail delivered pretty quickly. No one wants to come out and chat when it's pouring.

"Someone" as in someone.....? I do have a calico that has been communicating with Margaret the green cat from Mars for years....throuh all our electrical wiring.....Sammi has shorted out whole sides of the house, peed in the plugged in toaster (yes, we threw it out) and spend much time every day leaping up to pat the light switches, or under my bed trying to "do something" with my power strip....(I had to duct tape it to the wall, and cover all open sockets.)

Margaret is from one of my fav childrens books...."Ellsworth and the Cats from Mars" by Patricia Brewer.

I just don't know.

It's official, my mother has taken in a former meth cooker. If she brings her to Thanksgiving or x-mas dinner I might just stay home.

A few days ago, she told me a lovely story about my great aunt, her abusive husband, and a dog (imagine the worst possible thing and you'll be correct). Now I'm not sleeping, and am in desperate need of brain bleach.

They're keeping me busy at work, but my patience is at an ebb. People want a babysitter. Grown people want a babysitter, for themselves.

I have no patience for bullshit.

That's what we've been doing and yesterday it finally worked! By evening he was chomping that (kmr soaked) kibble like a champ! And this morning he drank out of the big kitties' water bowl! (very exciting as we've been getting him to drink water by sprinking a bit of KMR over it. He was refusing plain water up until today.) Hoping that by the time the weekend is over he'll be eating plain water soaked kibble.

Years ago, before fancy store bought kitten supplies....we'd get Gerber baby rice cereal, and mix it with canned milk...(bit richer milk, vet advised)...first we'd make it real soupy...and day by day thicken it up till they were chomping it down...then crunched kitten chow in the milk and viola....weened.

Tipper finished reading the Harry Potter books to me last night. Now we're reading The Hobbit.

Another grey and dismal day.

Dacs is becoming more and more demanding.

I'm supposed to start in a DBT group tomorrow. The problem is, the number my therapist gave me to contact the person who's running it is no good so I can't call to sign up. Should I just show up? I'm a little nervous about doing that.

I traditionally haven't done well in groups but my therapist thinks it would be good for me so I guess I'll give it a go.

We are leaving for Mexico in a little over a week.

Lovely visit with Al yesterday.

Clutzo Cat has chosen to nap precariously on the back of the sofa, which sits in the middle of the room and has low bookcases behind it. I've put folded up fleece on the top of the shelves and my wonderful Jackie suggested a pillow on the floor. He doesn't bounce well these days, and forget landing on his feet.

Lots of sewing done yesterday, over half the Xmas presents are done.

Lots of papers to sort through today.

Guess it's a good thing the Big Guy's battery died so he had to take my car, he'd left me a list of errands he wanted run that he didn't get to yesterday and I didn't really want to leave the apartment today.

Grim, when it's your turn to speak, maybe you could mention how the word "mindfulness" makes you barf. (Just my two cents; disregard if not appropriate :wink: )

I am so tired. Hubby and BIL and I worked on the backyard most of the day. Their project was turning the old rabbit cages into a temporary shed, and I was trying to organize and clean out my crafting and storage area in the driveway.

Visitor Kitty visited Hubby this morning.

Tomorrow is my long-overdue spa day. I figured since I had to go get my facial hair waxed, I might as well have a massage and use the sauna while I was there.

I would love to, but the concept of "mindfulness" is one of the core principles of DBT so I don't know how that would go over. It's just that I went to a Buddhist college and the whole thing is so old to me.

My therapist did warn me that I would probably find the group frustrating in that respect.

I'm going to go tonight and see how it goes, then talk to my therapist about it. But I really think the whole thing is a colossal waste of time at this point.

Someone I hadn't heard from in about 30 years contacted me on FB. It was a real shock.

Must finish raking up all the leaves I started yesterday but today is cold and nasty out.


The stray pregnant mama cat was just here to eat. She's so friendly and hugs me tight around my neck with her front legs. She's also HUGE with kittens :(


My hormones have settled down and I'm not so weepy and feeling rejected as I was a couple days ago. I wish I had meds for this.


I do have health insurance again and could have meds I guess....but after doing it on my own for this long, I think it's best to keep it up.

My niece on the other hand (whose first word was "kitty") thinks Vox is the best thing EVER.

Not enough hours in the day, I need at least three more.

I think I need to go see the doctor. For a month my throat has been feeling swollen inside. It doesn't hurt or anything, but it concerns me. My right ear feels kind of clogged too.

For some reason I'm really reluctant to go, though.

I feel pretty foggy today, probably from lack of sleep.

Vox is such a cuddler, I hope he stays that way as he gets older. I think it may be because he's our first cat who we got without a littermate.

He's so cute, when he wakes up if there is anyone (human or cat) near him he will purr loudly and stretch towards them.

He's afraid of everyone who comes by the house, it's like having a baby who is going through stranger anxiety.

Took the kiddos to a pumpkin patch yesterday, that was fun.

I'm sick of being so careful with our money only to be brokish all the time anyway. Then I feel guilty because I should feel grateful for what we've got.

My stepmom just went through radiation a few monthes back for breast cancer and it did a number on her skin (right in that area) for a while but they gave her some killer creams for it. She kept what she has left, she says if her hands are dry or whever when she goes to bed she puts a dab on and in the morning "it's like having new skin". Rah rah modern medicine and all that. She's very fair and they said her skin reacted more strongly than they would have expected (and it got better) so hopefully it won't even be an issue for you but if it is be sure they give you the prescription moisturizers and what not. I'll see if she can give me the names of the stuff they gave her if you want.

It was kind of cold yesterday (for here), and this morning it was cold when I woke up. The idea of going to bed with wet hair makes me shiver, so I guess I will take a shower in the morning.

My stomach doesn't hurt, but it's noisy. I wonder if that's a side effect of the medication.

How am I going to survive nearly three weeks without internet and without my music. Can't do much about the internet thing out in the boonies, but I have a feeling I'm going to regret not getting an IPod.

Had to go get more candy because kids were coming non-stop...anywho, says I to the football team, "Aren't you too old to be trick or treating?" "NO," answered five kids in a low voice...I am going to bed. I gave them all my three bags left of candy and they left with smiles and thank yous!!!

Sick of being broke. Going to be a beans and rice and lots of pasta kind of week.

My son woke up very ill yesterday. Fever/headache/cough/sore throat. I was actually happy when he got the cough because my big fear when the kids get sick is not H1N1 but Mennengitis (had a friend from Girl Scouts die of that when I was a kid.)

I was very happy to read that the new shot for that can be had by kids as young as 11 so we'll be getting that for the kids as soon as he is well.

Poor punk had to miss Halloween though, quite a bummer.

I'll be so glad when this month is over. Hopefully, if things go the way they should.

I woke up way too early this morning, partially because I was hungry, partially because the cats were being obnoxious. I wish I had been able to sleep longer.

It's a lovely day, but cold.

Start of another long week.

I think I'm getting a disability payment today. So we should be able to get some of our bills paid finally.

That would be a relief.

Violet is begging for more chicken but she has eaten it all.

I think I bombed the interview I went on this afternoon. I hate those, give us three strengths and three weaknesses,what areas do you excel at and what could do with improving type of interviews.

And I feel guilty about even going cuz Typhoid Mary went home sick 15 minutes after she got to work so our CSM has been all by herself since I left.

Then I lost a push/shove contest with a gas station bollard, and now have a really tacky yellow streak down the passenger side door of my car.
The Big Guy is going to freak when he sees it.

Meanwhile, Sahara is doing his purry best to make the day better.

My husband is at work but told me he's coming home as soon as he's done with a couple of phone meetings. And I'm feeling pretty crappy too. Wonder how our daughter is doing at school..

It's funny my mom and I are of such different minds about taking kids to the doctor I nearly said "Good lord, why would I want to take him to a doctor's office? HE'S SICK" Whereas she's of the "pink medicine for every ailment" school of thought.

Why was there so much mail? Tuesday are usually the lightest day of the week...it was like having another Monday.

Tomorrow the sub clerk that now hates me is working. She won't speak to Colleen either and Colleen had nothing to do with her having to take her sick kid home. Should be interesting.

Hubby got a new recliner. Apparently it's "the chair of a million smells". The boys have been sniffing it up, and can't figure out where they want to lay on it yet. Trying different positions. :lol:

They had to be done, 2 weeks late and I'm getting bitten again! so sick of these little vampires no amount of house spray, carpet washing, hoovering, frontlining is killing the little sods off.

I also treated the boys - two 6 packs of fishy felix, 1 large box of Go-Cat, 2 new ping pong balls - where all the other balls have gone I have no idea but there must be a special place teeming with them. I had to keep Billy and Merlin in today with the threat of rain and didn't want to go through last night's rigmarol again. This morning Merlin was shouting OUT!!!!! at me, I must film him he really does say OUT!!!!!!!! a furry man of few words, but when he speaks you clearly understand his needs.

Told my boss and he didn't freak out like he did when I told him I would be taking off a week after the wedding. And he has yet to say "You will be back the day after right...?"

I am certain the four legged furry ones know about the up in coming changes. Daisy is all over me and Spencer (the dog) will not sleep in the bed with out me laying down too.

I am not used to this no energy thing though.

Doc gave me muscle relaxants for my neck. Fexmid, which is Flexoril, which means I'll be a raving bitch. But I think it might be worth it if I can get some sleep and quit hurting. It's not like the pain is making me Little Mary Sunshine.

People are apparently asking the CW to not air the next episode of Gossip Girl because they are afraid of the affect it will have on teens. Here's a thought- parent your own children! Jeeeeeeesh. To expect everything on TV to be child friendly is ridiculous. And if your child is already hooked on G.G. watch it with them and discuss what's going on. I don't understand people who are so passive when it comes to their children.

Vox is such a mama's boy lately. He's constantly under foot, hiding under my skirts. It's the one place in the house the big kitties dare not seek revenge for his frequent attacks. :P

They loooove Vox though. He's so spoiled, someone is always fussing over him and cleaning his ears and whatnot.

I hope my son's cough clears up soon. At least he can sleep, he doesn't cough while he's asleep so it gives his body a rest.

Man I can sympathise, my husband and son are allergic to most sented things. Perfume needs to go the way of public smoking. You shouldn't have so much on that someone more than three feet away can smell it. There's no need to turn yourself into a living air freshener.

My son is so bummed out. He's been sick for six days now and still much too sick to go anywhere but has a killer case of cabin fever. He's sick of doing anything that he is able to do while laying still.

It's so much harder for him than the rest of us because we don't mind having time on our hands to lay around and read and what not. He wants to get outside and play but his cough won't allow for that. Not that he has the energy.

I want to go to the library so badly. Maybe we'll be well enough later in the weekend. Our library is open on Sundays, bless it!

I understand the fragrance issues, HC. I have breathing issues with anything vanilla-based. We had a box holder last week that was infused with vanilla. I was so sick, headache and stomach ache, that I had to call in sick the next day. It felt like my throat was closing. My daughter. when in high school used to use a vanilla perfume. She had to change her clothes and shower as soon as she got home. (Which was no hardship to her, she showered at least three times a day anyway) It just affected my breathing soo much!

Bad turn of events for my son, for all of us....beginning to look like his best friend and companion through college, his Beagle Watson is dying. Watson is 16, still active, if a bit slower, and a bit deaf....but (was) in good health and seemed strong enough for a couple more years at least.
Poor son, he's really only had two pets in his whole life, his orange cat that he got when he was four, that passed away when the cat was 18...and took a big chunk of my gentle giants heart with him. It took 5 years for him to feel strong enough to give his love to another animal, and asked for a Beagle puppy for graduation. Watson, the surfing dog, the college dog, beloved and known by so many in Santa Cruz....dear god my son is hurting so bad. Unlike his old cat that passed peacefully in his sleep, son is facing having to "choose" for Watson to go....and he can barely function he's in so much pain over it. Watson has had epilepsy all his life, now has Cushings, but that seems to be the least of his problem now, he coughs constantly, his heart is enlarged....son has taken him to several vets, to one at Staford, still no real answers....he's going in for an ultra sound this next week......dear god, I hope there will be some answers other than the one we dread.....would appreciate some good thoughts and prayers for Watson....and my son.....thank you.

I just love T to death. She is one of the awesomest people that I know. ( I know...not a word) She doesn't know a stranger. She would sit down at a game and by the time she left, she knew the person's name next to her, and half their life story. I think they formed a fan club for her at the casino! :lol:

We were planning on going to Lincoln City (Taft) to have lunch at Mo's, and then go to Chinook Winds afterwards. Nicole swells up so much while sitting for awhile that we changed it to Spirit Mountain. Was that there when you went through? I swear it's like the Winchester House, they are always building something new out there! :lol:

We ate at Mo's in Taft too...."Winchester House"....I remember and have stayed at the Dorchester House....don't remember a Winchester....except down here somewhere where the crazy widow of Winchester built this insane house. We went to the only Casino I know of, in Lincoln City....the whole thing is bizarre to me....casinos in all my fav beach town haunts from 40 years ago.....strange, very strange.

I keep waking up earlier and earlier every morning. It's getting very old.

Tipper's reading LOTR to me. I think I slept through the battle of Helm's Deep.

I find myself feeling jealous of my friends who have/are having babies and then guilty because I should just be grateful for the two kids I have.

It's just we always planned on having three (I wanted bunches, he wanted "no more than three" so we compromised on three.) But between my heatlth and our tendancy to have kiddos on the autism spectrum two seemed like a logical stopping point.

I just wish my heart knew what my head knows but I guess that's the case often in life.

My husband "doesn't need to see a doctor" *sigh* freaking flu.

Vox is keeping my lap warm. :)

Did not sleep worth a darn last night. I am sure it because of the doctor apt today. I tend to think too much before hand. I have to get over this...I have at least 15 more of these in the next 8 months...and sadly I will not be off work everytime like I am today.

Daisy is losing a tooth. It happens to be one of her front ones and thus making her look like Snaggletooth. It doesn't seem to be bothering her though. She can eat, drink, clean and is even allowing me to touch it.

My little brother asked me for relationship advice from Germany last night. It made me feel so special. Even if I was the only one around at the time he needed to talk. I still felt very special.

Hubby thinks that he is coming down with a cold. And he is over protective and will not let me get near him.

I need to find something to eat...my stomach is yelling loudly at me.

Vox's favourite toy is my niece's old Dora the Explorer slipper that has Dora's head on the front of it. He carries it around by what would be the scruff of her neck if she were a cat and chirps happily.

Actually unless he is really pissed he always chirps rather than meows. He's very chatty too, often chirping to himself as he goes about his day.

Thinking of entering a sewing competition..nothing like adding one more project to my growing list of things I want to do in my spare time.

Finally found fair trade chocolate chips for sale locally!

There was a funnel cloud spotted near my house yesterday! :shock: :shock: :shock: So glad I didn't see it...I would have had a heart attack! Didn't touch the ground. A good thing.

Last Fri. a water spout made in onto land in Lincoln City. Tore the roof off a house and damaged cars, trees and power lines. WTF is up with this crazy weather.

Supposed to freeze tonight after raining all day. That will make some ugly roads in the am. I need to get to Les Schwab and buy a set of studs. That won't be cheap....with 16" wheels! Also need chains. Got two sets but for 15" wheels.

Got my brakes done yesterday. Only had to pay for the parts. I traded my Intrepid (trashed transmission) for a brake job all the way around, tires for hubby's truck and work on his exhaust system. Deal done! Otherwise I would have had to donate the car to a charity or pay someone to haul it away. WIN!

Still have the migraine. I went to the dr. for it yesterday and they gave me a shot of Benadryl and Phenergran and a prescription for Percocet. I've been taking the Percocet about every four to six hours and it helps a little but it's not knocking the damn thing out.

We're supposed to go out for dinner with Tipper's folks tonight but I don't know if I'm going to be up to it. Then again, there's nothing to eat in the house so I may just have to grit my teeth and get through it.

I really need to write to my mom--I haven't in months--but I don't know what to say.

I have never been so happy to see 5 on Friday in my life. This has been one of the longest weeks ever.

Morning sickness is kicking in a lot more this week. I could not get out of bed until 7:45 this morning...too bad I had to be to work at 8. :oops:

I hate that Sean had to work tonight. But it does give me time to catch up on all my shows that he doesn't like in the dvr.

Going out with the girls tomorrow night. I have agreed to be the DD as long as they have a way home. I can't seem to keep my eyes open past 9:30 any more.

My coworker died yesterday. A family member found her in her kitchen. She was on leave, recovering from surgery to correct her cellulitus, was doing great, then kaput.

I hate to turn things back to me, but I had cellulitus a couple of months ago (mild compared to hers), and my leg has been hurting. I'm really worried about her family. They were close.

I got my blood work results today. Surprise! High cholesterol and anemic. :roll:

Work was really hard. I so wanted to tell people that they could have something to complain about but they're lucky so they don't. Assholes.

I am so sick of having the same conversations over and over again 100+ times a week.

I kind of wonder how much of my life is spent having those conversations?

I probably don't want to know.

Attempts to abbreviate these conversations are unsuccessful. I guess I should be glad that these conversations seem to have taken the place of other OCD behaviours she has had in the past.

I really don't want to have this homeschooling teacher home visit tomorow. The house is a mess, the printer is broken and we have barely anything to show her because we've all been so sick for so long. Blah.

Broke down and turned the heater back on. Very thankful I did it is down right chilly out.

Making chili for dinner. That is assuming I can get off the couch.

Went to see Amelia with mom and stepdad...Not sure I really enjoyed it.

The animals have had a very calm relaxing day. Daisy is snuggled on the back of the couch and Spencer is on the coffee table in his tray. Picture the box that Garfield lays in. That is what the tray looks like that my dog likes to lay in.

Vox is madly in love with my hair and while I sleep he kneads it into dreads. Spent a couple of hours last night catching up on Tivoed shows while trying to comb dreads out of waist length hair. MUCH FUN.

It was hard for me to get out of bed this morning. I am sure it is probably because hubby was already at work and he is now my "Cami you have to get up" voice.

We made a deal not to go out to eat...that didn't happen tonight. I don't have the energy to cook and honestly nothing sounded good.

I want a garden, with my own grown veggies and birds!

I hope all my lovely cats in France are ok, scared to visit them when i'm there next week in case they're not...but want to take them cat food pressies!

Going to see LLoyd Cole doing an acoustic show tomorrow night, should be great

9th anniversary of Mum's death tomorrow, I still miss her so much

sewing sewing sewing. Only so many more days until Christmas

Played hooky yesterday afternoon to spend some time with the Big Guy, our days off no longer match :(

Py has been in advanced supervisory mode all day. And a rather critical supervisor at that.

The consignment shop my brother and I were displaying at closed. I'll be putting stuff on line instead for a bit.

Back to my sewing machine. I really wish I could do that for a living.

I have to work on my farmville, lol!


We are putting up Christmas lights today! Ho Ho Ho!


I have boxes of sawdust for the enclosure litter boxes and Max is finally pissing in it! Yay for small miracles!!!!!! Now I have to tell dad I took his sawdust for cat litter while he was gone yesterday, lol!

I got lost 4 times, ran a red light (I think), and nearly had a nervous breakdown trying to get to K's funeral. Goddamn country towns with their little country roads.....

Surreal moment-at the reception, the pastor was giving the blessing and Rod Stewart's "Hot Legs" was playing in the family room. It was a VERY small church so the pastor had accompaniment.

Laundry day. I also need to clean up the kitchen so that I can trash it again with Thanksgiving baking.

Gus woke me up early today. He was apparently worried about the hungry birds.

I got some sunglasses that fit over my regular glasses. They're too big, but that's better than too small right?

I'm nervous but excited! I have to drive to Portland myself. I've always gone to Nicole's as a passenger and never paid attention to how we got there.

I have my Mapquest directions. Called Tara and she said they were correct. They were totally wrong when we went to the shower.

Nic was sleeping. Tara said they are both so tired. I told them we wouldn't stay very long. Tara says she's sooo excited for me to meet Brighton.

I'm super excited also!!!

Well, I better get ready. I've got an hour & a half drive in front of me.

They are both curled up sleeping and snoring on the blanket together......TOUCHING EACH OTHER!!!!

Getting ready to head for sons for Thanksgivig....and to meet his lovely lady's parents.....pressure, naw.....god do I need drugs for this....plus Friday we're going to Watsons favorite beach and toss his ashes...will not be a "fun" day.....son still and probably will for a long time, hurts so much loosing his little friend.

I forgot to say, my work is hiring. They just hired some people for Customer Service (my department) with more to come, and the HR director contacted me to find her French speakers (because we all hang out, ya know).

Brighton is perfect and amazing! He was awake the whole time. looking at me when i talked to him. :D

Vox makes this little "fuff" sound that is the cutest noise on the planet. It's like a much milder version of a hiss. You get it a lot if you pull him away from doing something naughty. It's like he knows that morally he hasn't a leg to stand on but he still wants to express his displeasure.

My mom is on facebook. Arguing with friends of my friends. *headdesk*

Bought a gift online before realizing that the place I was buying from (who sell through Amazon) can not only not include a gift card they won't even put in an invoice or anything that might hint at who they are from. Now I need to figure out a suave way to say "The gloves are from us" so she doesn't think she got them by mistake.

The kids have the week off, it was so nice to be able to sleep until 7 this morning!

Just put the turkey in the fridge..I hope it thaws in time. :shock: It's not very big just a 12 pounder.

Oh, it was nasty. I hadn't had a trim in three months and the grey was taking over.

Finished LOTR last night. Don't know what we're going to read next.

Finally wrote to my mom. Didn't have much to say, so it was short.

Someone either peed or puked on my pillow. I'm washing it now. Hope it holds up.

Luna either really likes or really doesn't like the smell of the product in my hair. She keeps chewing on my head.

Good idea Tink; Annie and I hung out a lot yesterday. From the way I feel now, it'll be happening today too.

Grim, have you guys read the "Outlander" series by Diana Gabaldon? The stories are great, although I confess to skipping over the very graphic violence, and re-reading the sometimes graphic sex! She has a tendency to have awful things happen each book, but I find her stories worth having to skip some pages.

Went to a support group last week and wasn't very supported. Part of it was my attitude, I know. But I keep finding myself wanting to go back just to let them know. Am I only wanting to confront them, or would it be a good reminder to watch what you say, especially when the other person may be feeling very vulnerable.

I think the fatigue is making me depressed. I'm afraid of chasing off my friends with all the whining.

That said, 5th thought is too tired....

Due to communication issues with extended family (somewhat hysterical extended family) we spent about twenty minutes this morning thinking my FIL had died.

Yeah, I've read them. I think Tipper's only gotten through the first four. But I don't know that they would make good "read-aloud" books. We're trying to stick to YA material.

When I went through the support group fiasco last month, my therapist really wanted me to at least tell the facilitator how I felt because she said it would be good information for the facilitator to have. I never did, though. I was too angry to be coherent and use my "I" statements and stuff. If you think you can do it in a healthy way, I think you should.

I really hope I stop this crap sometime today. It's like a cycle of emotions.. numb and then crying. Numb and then crying.

It's amazing how different I am when I'm with Duckie and Leah vs when I'm by myself. I'm home right now, alone, caved up in my room and not wanting to do anything.. not wanting to talk to anybody and not wanting really to exist.

Not using this as a pity thing. I feel sorry enough for myself as it is. I just need to get out of here.

Been reading the new book by Jacqueline Carey, Naamah's Kiss. It's really good. In fact, I'm going through it so fast I don't think it will last the day...

Tipper and I are now reading Garth Nix's Old Kingdom trilogy.

Nothing like having a kitten around to remind you how wonderous life is. Earlier he was thrilling over the many ways he could play with a cracker box. Now he is FASCINATED by the fact that it is raing. It's like the kitten equivilant of a blockbuster action flick. WATER. Falling from the SKY!

The woman who lived in the house before us had seriously expensive taste in clothes. We keep getting catalogs that have $79 turtle necks and $300 dresses in them.

Hey, I'm not snooping, it says "Or current resident".

But really, around here that seems like a bit of a waste. Iowa not exactly being a hotbed of fasion. If your John Deer cap is unstained you are styling. I kid! I kid! Well..only kind of.

It's been a few years since I cooked the turkey. I was going to brine it but I've never done that before. I think I'll experiment with a smaller turkey first. WTH do 3 people need a 17lb turkey for? My mother!

My mom is the worlds worse cook. I could tell you stories all day long. I think we will let her peel the potatos....maybe.

I feel like I have run a marathon after yesterday. Thanksgiving was so busy...with my mother trying to direct everything, :roll: , and getting everything ready, there were about five people in the kitchen bumping into each other...TONS of food, which all of the boys ate or took home and of coarse sitting on their hineys watching football. At least no one fought just through some caustic comments around.

Mom's surgery been moved to the 8th of December, they are worried about the instability around her spinal cord...hope she gets over this soon she hates not being in control and was really bitchy yesterday...sorry mom, you have to sit on the bench for awhile. Love it when your parents become your kids, it's a little abby-normal.

Was that you the anonymous caller? Come on, this is not 1996. Do you think I wouldn't know who was calling on TG from an anonymous call and would not leave a message? Several times? Hope you are having fun in Florida...ass_hat. To resort to name calling feels so good even though it's immature. fuck_wit.

Boil some water, put in a drop of eucalytus oil or a leaf if you have it, put steaming water in a bowl and tent your heat over it with a towl....and breathe the steam....its a 2fur......facial and sinus relief.

Have you tried the NetiPot system of washing out yor sinuses......you simply use warm lightly salted water.....something that can hold it and still pour into your right nostril....head over sink turned to left side...the repeat on left side, pour the salted waster in your left nostril, head tipped the other way. Water will flow through and into the sink.....does wonders for your sinuses....Google it, they might explain it better, I can do it, it feels wierd at first till you notice how much better you feel...but it's hard to explain.

We've had so many near misses with my FIL but it looks very much like he's serious about not making it this time. If he gets out of the hospital it will be to go to hospice.

Trying to figure out when we should get back up there. It's the most heart wrenching thing.

Trying to figure out what/when to tell the kids. So far we've told our son that Grandpa is in the hospital again. He knew it was serious because of the hour of the call. I will talk to our daughter today, I wouldn't want her to feel left out of the loop just because she can't hear the phone ring.

I hate that we had to move across country to keep medical care for the kiddos. I hate that we are here and not there.

I spent all day yesterday with this very strong feeling of "We shouldn't be here" I don't know if it was a coincidence or what, call came last night.

Days like this can show you how well people don't know you. My stepmom suggested that my "spirits might be lifted" by Oprah Winfrey's show...of people singing Christmas Carols.

If by "spirits lifted" you mean "I would probably bawl until I puked" then yes. Christmas Carols would do that at this point. Good suggestion.

I am instead ingesting a steady diet of Iggy Pop. Spirits? Slightly lifted. And I am not crying. That's as good as it gets for now.

"Someone you love and care about may be dying thousands of miles away from you...at Christmas time..you know what you need? CHRISTMAS FREAKING CAROLS." yes. indeedy.

Everyone? "Singing LALALALALALA LALALA LALALALA" Hey! Iggy Pop is a bit like a Carol.

But the phone was non stop, you would hang up and with in 5 seconds there was another call. Pretty certain we had at least 45 applications. We normally get 10-15 a day.

I did get to have a nice lunch and dinner with my hubby though. So the day is not a total loss.

I am a complete sap. I spent all day yesterday watching the WE channel. They had back to back to back wedding shows. I am now watching one that I recorded...bawling...good thing hubby is not here he would laugh at me.

9 weeks today!!! I can't wait until next week and the dr appointment. I am very hopeful we will hear the heartbeat. We saw it on the sonogram last time. But hearing it will be even better. Pretty certain there will be tears.

Gus is being a little nag.

Gibson is so quiet, I worry that I'm neglecting him. Gus is an attention whore though.

I finally ordered my Nexium. Too bad I ran out yesterday.

I seem to have lost my x-mas plan.

I'm not going to make it through today without some serious help.

I couldn't finish my project it looked foreign to me and I'm wondering if this is a result of the concussion I received four weeks ago. Shite.

I have to make it through today.

There has to be something I can do.

I am so worn out and will be glad when this week is over.

We couldn't understand why my folks were buying a condo three hours from their house when they are already so broke. Now it's quite clear..it's apparently for my dad to live in.

Well that's easier than a divorce I spose. I am grateful to my current stepmom for that much.

If you buy a piece of pumpkin pie that you know has been sitting unrefrigerated on a grocery shelf for at least a day and you get it home and it is kind of runny? DO. NOT. EAT IT.

Sure, you may say "Doesn't that go without saying? Well..yes..maybe. But I only get pumpkin pie once a year and this year my sister brought pie and she brought lemon cream. On Thanksgiving. Oh the humanity.

We're going to get Vox one of those stuffed animals they use to train dogs to fetch for hunters. He needs something his own size to kill toy mousies are losing their luster and the older kitties are starting to get cranky with him.

So bloody tired from the radiation. It comes and goes. Did I do too much yesterday? I took a little walk, but that's supposed to help.

Trying to do stuff around the house. Of course, not cleaning desk or anything useful; hanging pictures instead.

Forgot to eat lunch until I read HC's post about leftovers. Duh.

In final phase of radation. Yay! Another tattoo dot, right on my boob. Boo. Do not want, but it's to help me get better....so we did it.

It was Terrible Tuesday! 'Tis the season....to work mail carriers to death. I'm getting too old for this shit. Of course they are watching us like hawks for overtime. Heaven forbid we should be rewarded for all the free time we put in. They can kiss my ass!

Just spent a wonderful time adding pictures of Brighton to my photo gallery! Tara emailed me a bunch today. He's so cute! I can't wait to show hubby when he gets home.

The OIC told me should would pay me for the extra time that it took me to clean up the sub's mess. Yay! As well she should. I hadn't even talked to her about it yet, as I was too pissed to do it civilly. Guess maybe she heard of my grumblings and threat of grievance through the grapevine. I love her to death, but she needs to grow a pair. I'm not working for the shits and giggles of it all.

Wow! I'm grumpy! :lol: I think it's my old lady aches and pains. I'm going to the Dr on Thurs. My elbow is swollen and hurts like a bitch, same with my knee. Both on the same side. I have to take off work because it's the only time I could see my Dr. Otherwise it was a NP, no thank you. Hope it's not arthritis.

Wish I had magic food that would cook itself tonight.

Went to N.'s FB page to post birthday wishes and found she's friended the Toxic One. I'm trying not to be too angry about this, but I am. I mean, she has the right to friend who she wants and they were close in High School. It's just that I don't want N. to be hurt.

I had a lovely Christmas lunch with my DAR ladies today.

Was doing very well until I noticed that a silver caduceus charm I had on my keyring was broken off. It was a gift from my bil when I graduated from nursing school. The valet service was responsible. It wasn't that much silver. I would have given the guy a twenty if I had any idea that someone was that much in need.

I am glad that they left my other stuff alone, like my Biglots umbrellas and ice scraper.

I did put a twenty in the Salvation Army kettle.

Anyway, the take home lesson is give just the key to an attendant and have nothing of value in the car.

Thanks for the reminder about mint M&M's. I will get some next week, after I have the blood drawn for my yearly physical. :oops:

I went shopping today. I got a really good deal on the biggest set of Prismacolor coupons using my Michaels coupon. I think Art Supply Warehouse may have had them even cheaper, but I didn't wait to look there because they weren't in the ad, and the next smaller set was advertised as more than I paid for the big one at Michaels.

I also got paint, and fabric dyes (they had those at art supply warehouse) and metalic watercolors, and found a hidden nursery, and got something at the college pottery sale...

I need to plant stuff tomorrow morning, because I'm going to my church's women's holiday dessert thingy in the afternoon, and it's supposed to rain Sunday.

I really need to work on my cards, and my ornament for the Organic Gardening ornament exchange!

Bonus 6th thought: I was just on Facebook, but it was not working for me. :(

Myet has demanded that I get out the space heater and let her soak up all of the heat - too bad I can't demand that she pay the electric bill next month!!

I am tired of mean people doing mean things.

Like TMC, I'm worried about my Outsiders in this weather. But they are pretty smart and know how to keep warm with all I offer them. I still wish I could bring them in. No one would get any sleep if I did. Their manners aren't so good and it would upset the Kings of the Castle.

Yup, still Salishan! We went down the road to Gleneden Beach (which is kind of a hidden treasure) to this shop called The Crystal Wizard. Amazing place...I must go back with some money in my pocket.

It was hard to be at work today. I was only there for a portion of the day.

The funeral is on Saturday. Viewing on Friday...this will prove to be a very hard week.

As I sit here watching some mindless tv I find it hard to not burst out in tears. I woke myself up last night crying. Poor hubby had to deal with the tv on for the rest of the night so that I could watch tv and try and stop my mind from working over time.

Broke down in tears when I opened the fridge and saw the jar of pickles my grandpa loved.

Only plus this week will be my OB appointment tomorrow morning. I am very hopeful that we will hear the heartbeat. We need a pick me up this week.

I went in to school this afternoon to paint, because the art league party is supposed to be tomorrow night and I was planning on skipping class. But I got an email that the lady who was hosting the party is sick, so there probably won't be a party.

Had a strange conversation with another manager who oversees the OR's - he does not have a clue about anything - I had to tell him sometimes stuff happens there that even I can't explain!!

Had a high carb day - bread, bagels, cornbread dressing, toast for dinner and tea cookies with my cuppa. I is round, like ball.

Tomorrow is another Resident Candidate interview day - more wannabe Anesthesiologists crowding into the office. Most are nice, some are just way too impressed with themselves.

I miss my husband, he's out of town for work this week and missing the snowed-in-ness.

It's a shame because the one nice thing about this kind of weather is that it's cozy when he ends up working from home because the roads are crap and the kiddos have a snow day. I love having the whole family home.

Being the only adult home all week with the kids home all week due to the weather on the other hand... :shock:

Of course the weather shouldn't technically keep me from homeschooling my son but we keep to the regular school calander for the most part. It's easier that way it's really hard to school him while keeping my daughter out of mischief.

My son actually told someone the other day that he is a little bit autistic. It's interesting because I think it's the first time he has self identified that way. It's not like we've kept his dxes a secret but we kind of downplay that bit talking more about the learning disabilities. (I know it sounds bad but learning disabilities carry a lot less of a stigma. He's high functioning enough that I think the label could be as harmful as the disorder.)

(Yes, my children come by it honestly. :oops: ) I love that he uses the phrase "autistic" I have gone around the tree a bunch of times with other parents over that phrase.

Hood out front picture type window in front.....out kitchen and dinning room windows facing north...view of Mt. St. Helens....but she made the kitchen and bath too small...for some reason she decided she was going to only have boys!!!! (Three girls, one boy). Miss the spindrift off the mountain tops, the smell of the air, that "padded" quiet sound outside in the snow, or being able to hear the "bell bouy" in the night from my bedroom in Depoe Bay...the perpetual sand on the floor....damn now I'm homesick!!! again.

Mom came into town (she lives in the country an hour away), and I begged her to meet up with me so I could see her and give her a hug. She looked okay, and doesn't think Fucker will persist. I hope she's right, but if not, she's got a gun, and even though her boyfriend is in Mexico visiting family, she said that his son (a large man) always says to call if she needs anything and she said that she'll call him if Jesus calls/or tries again.

That's comforting. She's said several times that she feels safer because she's older and, therefore "undesirable", but Fucker just proved her wrong.

I offered to let her stay with me, but she said no.

I wish she lived closer.

We don't have it as bad as others, but it was 7F when I got up this morning and 28F when I got home from work. It is now 15f, at least the wind is mild.

It has not been this cold here for 11 years, so you can see how spoiled we are.

I'm worried about Curley, one of the outsiders. I hadn't seen him for two days. Yesterday he came out to eat, but seemed to be breathing heavy. Today, I noticed he had a limp and had that 'feeling miserable' look on his face. Tonight he seems to be a bit brighter, but looks very thin. He needs to see Dr. Jennifer. Poor baby!

Hope we don't get freezing rain on Sat. I'm equipped to deal with snow, but freezing rain is a whole different thing.

It's so hard to hate you but I do and I wish you would leave my mind and heart forever but that won't happen. I still see that stupid smile on your face that made me fall for you in the first place. When you ski, I hope you are buried in an avalanche.

Eight degrees. Everyone is freezing to death.

Poor mom, I'm glad I am here because dad is clueless. She's in a tad more pain than she expected.

Jesus if they don't find this damn project I am fucked. I am so sick of that place right now.

Something positive, something positive...well, I think I am starting to lose weight at a steady pace because I have no appetite. fuksok took care of that...I just want to stop hurting like a sixteen-year-old.

I feel really sad for Paula's middle daughter right now. She is the one who is a senior in high school, works part time, is very conscientious, and has the weight of the world on her shoulders. Her Facebook status today was "when do I get to be a normal teenager?" :cry:

I have been doing a lot of crafting. Now I need to print my cards.

I took my friend's dogs to the dog park. I hadn't seen them in over a month. The puppy was much bigger!

I bought a cute hat at the farmer's market yesterday (they have craftspeople there too).

Hubby had to go to work before 4 a.m. today. :shock:

Went out with an old fling tonight...he has a child now and is divorced. It was awkward but nice. we had a good time but I feel like I was dating a member of the family? ick.

You would think this crush would end especially since I won't be taking classes for five weeks and will probably be seeing you very rarely. I wish I were 21 again and this didn't give me such a complex but you are not hard to have a crush on.

Lot's of cleaning to do.

Nothing on TV, think I will pop in a DVD.

Our internet has been pretty random this morning. It's been really raining for hours (something that rarely happens here), and Stepdad was unable to get online earlier today. I had no problem getting on, but then when I came back to the computer after breakfast, I had to log back into MCHY, and I didn't think I had been away that long.

Not a lot to do today, because of the rain. We will be going to our nephew's birthday party (we were all surprised that he actually wanted carne asada and not pizza :wink: ) later.

The local quilting fabric store is supposed to be having a Christmas party today. I suppose I should get over there and check it out before it's time to go to the other party.

So, I won't be able to start printing my cards until about Tuesday (because I need to do that outside), but I guess I could finish cutting/tearing the paper to the right size.

Monday is the last night we get to paint before we turn stuff in. If it's still raining tomorrow, I may attempt to paint in acrylics (at least I'm not working with oil paint) while sitting on my bed, the only decent workspace I have indoors. Wish me luck!

I tried to go shopping today, but only made it as far as Hobby Lobby, and the crowd killed my mood so I came home and took a nap instead.

I woke up freezing cold despite two cats sleeping on me (my blood sugar was low).

Leftover bean soup for dinner tonight.

I almost got hit by a truck yesterday. Shithead ran a red light. I was already on guard from another red light runner or I would have been toast.

No freezing rain today. Just rain. Yay!

But it will probably freeze overnight and make ugly roads in the am, but I don't have to go ANYWHERE! Yippee!

Gotta figure out dinner from the freezer. Probably won't be "good" food, but I'm tired and I get no help or ideas. Grrrrr!

Wonderful news HC!!!!!!

I did something I haven't done in years, I went Christmas shopping at the mall on Saturday. And I dragged poor Robb with me. We were both twitching by the time we struggled out of there. But I got everything on the Big Guy's list.

Christmas cards are done and it only took me twice as long as normal with all the cat assistance.

Found my moose and put them all out. Sahara immediately flung himself into the middle and that resulted in a massive picture opportunity. They're posted on Facebook.

I so do not want to go to work tomorrow. It's like working in the middle of a Steven King nightmare anymore.

Took the kids sledding today, it was a great day for it. About as warm a day as you can have and still have decent snow.

Had the nicest weekend in a long time.....lots of continous rain....no raging storm, just nice steady quiet rain....good for snugging in with quilts and cats and a good boot and not feel guilty about what's not getting done.....and a couple of nice naps too.

About 3 weeks ago I was in an accident on the freeway.....could still drive my car, but it was all crunched up. It went to a friends body shop this weekend.....I'm soooooo happy, looks like a whole car again...new hood, new right bumper, new grille, two new headlights and new front bumper....they did an amazing job...and so quickly too.

Thank you all for your kind words about my grandpa. The service was on Saturday and after it was all said and done everything went very well. He was a very loved man and will be missed dearly.

Is super happy that aside from the clothing on my body right now and the laundry is done. And even put away.

FREAKING COLD outside...brrrr

Proud of myself I made a wreath instead of buying a premade one...it looks a little like a 3 year old made it but hey I am as creative as a 3 year old so I am proud that I made it.

I had to take my mom to a DRs appointment at 4:30 this afternoon. We got out of there at almost 6. :roll: She got in at about 4:15.

Had to drive home in the pouring rain and dark. Well I do that almost every morning, but it's always in the other direction. :lol:

I drove down Third Street in McMinnville after I dropped my Mom off at her apartment. It's the old downtown part of Mac...lots of high end shops. The decorations were AMAZING!! I think I will have to walk downtown before Christmas is over. It was hard to drive and gawk at the same time.

Now I actually have to do something with it so I can justify my recent increased fabric buying. :shock:

It would help if I could find the power cord/peddle for my sewing machine.

Had a homeschool teacher visit today but she canceled because she is sick. I feel terribly guilty for being relieved.

Company I used to get son's gift emailed me today. I had forgotten a card to include (free) and they wanted to know what I wanted said on it.

Getting my H1N1 vaccine tomorrow and the seasonal flu vaccine. Finally! Now that it's not so much of a risk here, EVERYONE can get a vaccine, not just the high risk people. I just don't get it. :roll:

Ha! My hubby's Christmas present arrived before he got home from work. I have it wrapped and hidden and he will not be able to snoop. He also doesn't have a clue as to what it is, for a change. :lol:

Tomorrow is supposed to be the busiest delivery day for the PO. Seemed like it was today if you ask me. I had to take a couple of HUGE parcels out this morning before I loaded my car. They took up my WHOLE back seat and were damn heavy and it was pouring rain. Yay Christmas! :P

I just signed up for Linkedin, to help my job search, but I am clueless about it and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.

Yesterday when I got my friend's dogs home from the dog park, I was getting them out of the car and Katie's leash slipped out of my hand as she took off for the mail carrier. I still feel so bad, she was so scared she screamed. I'm still getting the hang of handling dogs, I guess.

I started printing some of my cards today. They don't print quite as well as I would have liked, but they do have that homemade look. :lol:

The cat from next door comes over a lot, because Stepdad feeds her the kitty food we still have left over. She still won't let me get too close to her, because I like to pick kitties up and she only lets her meowmie pick her up.

I planted pansies in the front yard today.

Oh my....how big are these "pieces".....I have a mahogany folding screen. It's made of lots of small square openings. I have been looking at Japanese rice paper to make a backing for it....fabric would be too cool.

They are various sizes. The smallest was about 1.5 inches square (my daughter wanted it made into a necklace, I glued it onto a wooden disk and drilled a hole in it.) There were some fairly large pieces (the largest useable piece maybe 8" by 8" but there were longer pieces just weird shapes. I could take a picture later and post it. But these are very modern "kawaii"(cute) pieces along with some designer prints. What might work better for you are old kimono scraps which are also available on Etsy in various sizes. (All the way from 1" square to several yards.) The kimono scraps are usually silk, these pieces were all cotton or linen. (I think there may be a couple of hemp pieces but I wouldn't swear to it.)

Yeah the kimono fabrics would be awesome for something like that. The newer Japanese fabrics like what I got are SO CUTE but nearly as distinctly Asian looking. Actually I had to laugh, I found some cute Japanese prints I was going to get for my daughter (the Japanophile) but the words on the fabrics were all in French and I wasn't sure she'd believe they were Japanese.

And now comes the self-loathing/panic attacks that always follow a purchase for myself......

I finished one cat for my niece. I want to make at least one more. I don't think I'll do whiskers though. They always go every which way and it pisses me off.

Gibson is acting a bit off. He's probably been eating Things That Aren't Food. I wish he would stop. :(

I still need to clean the kitchen, but now that I have the mat, I don't have to sterilize the countertop. That's a worthy purchase, right?????

It is good for rolling out dough but I find where it really shines is in place of parchment paper for baking on. Cookies come right off of it and they seem less likely to burn as well. My family loves pizza cooked on it because you don't need to use any corn meal to keep the crust from sticking.

So much to do, including all the holiday stuff, even though we do a really low-key holiday.

I finally went and bought 10 bags of potting soil, along with lots of pansies, some snapdragons, and a few veggie plants.

Hubby has to go into work tomorrow, so he is not going to be staying up late.

The visitor kitty showed up again yesterday. And Allie from next door is coming over several times a day in hopes of Stepdad giving her a snack. Allie doesn't run away from me anymore, but she still doesn't want me to touch her (when I tried to scratch behind her ears the other day, she batted my hand).

I seem to have lost my avatar, but not my siggie pic. I'm not sure how to fix it, because way back when I first added an avatar, I was having so much trouble with getting it the correct size that Ruby had to help me with it--so I'm not sure if it's in Photobucket with the rest of my piccies or if it's somewhere else. I've been afraid to take it down and do a new one because I had so much trouble just getting the one I have.

massive snowing on Tink here :(

The Big Guy had to go to work. At least I know he got there ok, but that so sucks. We're expecting at least a foot maybe more and it's already 7+ inches, still snowing like mad and my children who wanted a white Christmas are totally to blame :D

Robb overflowed the toilet in his bathroom. YUCK. And naturally, I have no drain cleaner, just a bit of bleach and lots of hot water.

Good thing I did take off yesterday afternoon, otherwise, I would be SO far behind.

5th thought has gone to drink more coffee and suck thumb in the corner for awhile

Yay for arriving safe at home, and boo for snowing on Tink.

I started the cookies and am exhausted, but they are delicious. Still loads more to do.

I wrote an angry e-mail today. Bed Bath and Beyond canceled my order because it wasn't in stock, they didn't notify me of it, and I had to call to request the refund. Badly done BB&B! Thank goodness Amazon.com had it in their stock.

You know those people who always catch a break? My friend is one of them. Sometimes I want to strangle her, but at the same time, I'm happy for her. :roll:

When is my leg supposed to stop hurting?



Mmmm! Cookies! Can't wait for mine...you have my address, right? :lol:

Is your leg still hurting from the problem you had awhile back? If so....you've been hurting for too long. (((((HC)))))


I'd send you some if I could figure out how. They're very crumbly. I did post the recipe last year, but they are great undertaking. Worth it though.

My leg pain is from the same thing, but a different kind of pain. It just feels a bit stiff and achy. I think the infection might have caused nerve damage.

It's still snowing here :roll:

I knew I should have gotten all the stuff that was in my trunk to wrap out last night BEFORE the snow started.

Did get a good bit of sewing finished today, the bathrobes are done now I just need to back some quilts and we're good to go.

Sahara is currently napping in the middle of the dining room table on the poinsetta table cloth. He got up there all by himself. First time jumping since he fell and hurt himself so bad again several months back.

I need cookies.

My daughter stayed home Friday feeling punk. Slept a lot had an upset stomach. Our son woke up at 4 am with a much worse version of the stomach bug.

At least I hope it's the same bug, heaven help us if it's not.

He said he was feeling better when they got up to open their gifts (doing Christmas early because of the traveling we'll be doing this coming week).

Then he saw the tree and gifts and cried...in the long standing tradition of happy children everywhere...


"Bucket!" *sigh* It's going to be that kind of Christmas it seems.

Hoping for two things really strongly- that my FIL makes it until we get there and that he doesn't die on Christmas day.

Had a nice day yesterday. Stepdaughter went to a movie and hubby and I finished up our Christmas shopping. Then went over to moms for a great veggie soup for dinner and luminaries.

Stinks that after driving around last night looking at the 3 houses in our small town that have the lights syniched to music I came down with a migraine.

So much to do today. Painting some orniments, wrapping some gifts, and making some candies.

Miss Daisy is loving life right now, under the tree and safe from the pooch.

Next week at work will prove to be a very long one.

Trying to do laundry, but Gibson has taken up residence on the laundry pile.

Idiot people wishing for a "white christmas" Why? Because of a song. Yes, let's all wish for something that makes it hard to get to our families to celebrate. Morons. :roll:

Still debating whether or not to attempt work tomorrow, I know they've not plowed in Williamsport, at least on the street the office is on and most definitely not in the alley two blocks away we have to park in as it's not city maintained and my cheapo boss will not pay to have it plowed.

Why should he, he parks in our building in the basement warehouse.

I will not be there much longer, though The Big Guy and I have decided that Robb needs Momma home more. So I am going to find something part time as they would never agree to cutting my hours back there.

(((HC))) We're working both those days too.

The quilting is nearly done

I'm thinking it's bedtime

badplantmommy

20-12-2009 21:26:50

Tink, part time work sounds like a great idea! I'm thinking that's what I need too.

I ran into an old friend I used to work with (many years ago) when I was in the coffee house. It was nice to catch up.

I only had an hour of daylight left when I finally got around to planting the flowers, so I got half of them planted.

Well, my cards are done (unless I remember anyone else, or I get a card from someone I didn't send one to). Now it's time to make my presents for the girls. Oh, and since Hubby and I aren't really exchanging gifts this year, I want to replace the buttons on some of his shirts.

Hubby spent all day working in the garden. :D

I've felt like some kind of flu bug is brewing since Sunday but nothing really developed into full blown flu, bet it waits till I'm at Mum's.

Heater upstairs is going on the blink, well technically I shouldn't be using it, the plug is getting warm when it's turned up. I took the plug apart, cut off 3 inches of flex, rewired it and it's still doing it. Without it, upstairs is freezing!

Found a heater to buy but 4 week delivery time!

More snow here, a cat's paw depth. Boys have been out and came in pdq, they are bored tho.

I may crawl back under my duvet, didn't get a good night's sleep.

He got Chambersburg!!!!! I am thrilled, the Big Guy will be out of the shop from hell in less than two weeks and into a brand new one.

Still have two quilts to finish binding.

Wish I knew if we were getting off on Christmas eve. Probably not, though

Robb had a wonderful birthday and thanks again to everybody who posted for him. He really enjoyed seeing all the greetings. It meant the world to both of us.

I think the Christmas moose will have to remain out after Christmas, Sahara is totally one with the moose. He sleeps with them.

Hubby is off on Christmas, and he gets to go home early on Christmas Eve, but he has to work on the day after Christmas (he doesn't usually work Saturdays, but he's filling in for someone who is on vacation).

I'm taking my friend's dogs to a different dog park tomorrow, because the usual one is closed on Wednesdays. It's a little farther away, but should be okay. They really wore me out yesterday!

Stepdad has a new best friend: the kitty from next door, because he feeds her. :lol:

After having no heater to speak of on through the night I awoke to a very icy bedroom, Merlin was tucked up next to me on the bed so our warmth exchange had kept us both going, Billy was down the bottom of the bed near my feet. I've just switched my sister's fan heater on and it's rattling away but tis generating heat. Thick Aran jumper on again and tonight I'm at Mum's till Boxing Day so it will be warmer there. Billy & Merlin will have to do their own cuddle up heat exchange while I'm away. I've just given them their Christmouse Dinner, no mouses were hurt in the making of it, Felix Roasted Chicken with gravy, all the gravy has gone :lol:

Billy has ventured outside this morning to do his wee, but Merlin is hiding, he looks spooked. I told Billy, Merlin wasn't coming and he replied back something unintelligable.

My brother and his gf are travelling down to Essex later today so I hope they have a safe journey, Essex is particularly bad with snow.

Our snow is still here, some of it has melted but not much.

I hope everyone has a safe, warm, Merry Chrimbles :D

We had dinner at my SIL's house tonight. Birria de chivo. It was good.

I've got the heat on. It's very cold (for here) outside.

It was kind of hard writing the cards for the girls this year. What do you say to a young person who lost her mother earlier this year? Merry Christmas just doesn't seem to cut it.

I asked for a basic MP3 player for reasons of frugality, and because I'm dumb-got an iPod Touch. I have no idea how to work it. :oops:

It's sync-ing with my computer now (I think), but my BIL put my niece's songs on it. Some are good, some aren't, so next up is to listen, choose, and figure out how to delete what I don't want. She misspelled foreign too, and it's driving me crazy.

Gibson is still freaked. But he did sit on my lap, so maybe I'm forgiven for the sleet.

The roads are terrible. I hope lots of people do lots of driving so I can go to work on Monday.

Everyone seemed to like their gifts, so that's good.

We managed up and back for Christmas, but it was one scary ride with limited visibility going up and almost none coming back.

Plus the Big Guy is sick, fingers crossed that it's a sinus headache only and not the you know what cuz we never get the shots. He was pretty miserable all day.

It was a much better Christmas than last year. I think Robb is overwhelmed with the stuff that came his way. But he was better today than he's been in weeks.

Py and Sahara did some extra special cat origami re-designing of the gifts, thank goodness I got up first.

Py is now practicing his newly honed origami skills on my curtains, so the fifth thought has gone to rescue them

Worried about my mom. She can't get out because of the snow. At least she's at home and has food.

Had a bad attack of insomnia last night - had to take a sleep aid in order to get some sleep, didn't wake up until almost noon. I hate when that happens.

Bright and sunny outside - everyone will be storming the malls looking for deals and using their gift cards. Not me, I hate crowds.

Finished the scarf I was working on for Himself - I am a really crappy knitter. Good thing I caved and ordered him a cashmere scarf from my favorite on line store!! Now I have a poorly knitted scarf for myself!!

Thoughts 4 and 5 are off trying to figure out what Myet is up to - she's back in the bedroom howling her head off (Maybe giving long distance curtain shredding directions to Tinks two!!).

I love it when cats do the butt wiggle before pouncing (Gibson just did an exceptionally cute one).

I'm going to make a trial run today and get ice. The roads look icy though, so I'm waiting until it warms up a bit.

Gus woke me up at 8:30! He wanted me to feed the birds.

I need to go through my CD's to see what I want to add to my iPod. Wheee! new toy!

I hope I don't get stuck. I'll have to drive to work tomorrow, so I might as well see if I can make it to a close location.

The trip to Hell was particularly unpleasant, we only stayed a short time, it was majorly rough on my Big Guy.

It was nice to see Dave and Suzanne on the way down though, wedding planning is in full swing, we're all very excited.

Our niece, Carly, got a cell phone for Christmas. We've been texting each other. She's sooo sweet and I love her bunches.

Hubby got a headset for his phone. On Jan 1st it will be illegal to use a cell phone while driving. He wants to get me one, but I don't need it. He does for his job but I'm always stopping anyway so it's no biggie.

Back to eating better. The holidays make it hard, and so do my customers, giving me goodies. I've been good, I've given most of the goodies to the clerk. Some of the cookies looked so good that I did have to sample a few.

OK, got mammogram out of the way. Next project: try to figure out how to do colonoscopy prep with three of us in the house and only one bathroom (at least only one of us is getting a colonoscopy :P ).

I didn't get to see my fair share of Christmas decorations (other than my own neighborhood), so before going home, I went to one mall just to look and grab a snack, and then to a nursery, where I got to see their trains and buy some more pansies.

My neice is supposed to be in the neighborhood sometime this week, but I don't know which day. I had my phone with me when I was out, but no one called.

Maybe it would have been better if I had not found those mint M&Ms. :lol:

None of our suppliers are open, UPS and Fedex are not running, we can't fill any orders that come in until Monday.

Next year, we'll be closed Thanksgiving day. That's it. Because Christmas is on a Saturday.

Mum's lovelife aint fairing well, we've all been telling her to dump him for awhile now, please Mum just take the plunge and do it, we'll fill in the gaps. Worried the stress of the eejit will take her out of remission.

My brother and his gf are moving to a place in the country, a little village, house is quaint and has an open fire, their first rented house, and he's just been made permanent in his job with a decent salary :D

Other 2 thoughts are off planning, ones holding the pen the other the notepad

Paula's middle daughter Amanda turned 18 yesterday. It seems like only yesterday she was a toddler, and now she's an adult...with a tattoo! :)

I wanted to see the Christmas decorations at South Coast Plaza before they took them all down, so I spent three hours walking all over the mall (it's a big mall) and got very tired.

Godiva chocolates are expensive, but very good!

I need to make more snowball cookies. They turned out pretty good.

Where's my drink?!?

Back from our trip.

My FIL is still alive (once again defying all medical professionals' opinions about how long he has.) But barely. At this point anything could kill him really. He's on a feeding tube because he can't swallow well enough and was getting pnuemonia from eating.

Leaving there was probably the hardest thing we've ever done, we were so hoping he would live long enough for us to get there we never imagined he would live long enough that we would have to leave him again.

Vox grew so much while we were gone! He remembers us but is pretty feral right now.

So worn out.

Had the shittiest New Years Eve EVER....thanks to my BIL's psyco girlfriend.

I feel pretty proud of myself for not knocking that bitch out! :lol: More to come about that.

It has been raining like freaking crazy here for two days. I got home yesterday soaked through my coat, my hoodie, my shirt, down to my bra! The rain took care of the snow.

The boys were glad to have us home. Bad mommy missed treat time yesterday, so they got extra. I 'think' I'm forgiven...we'll see!

Spudsmom, you've not been forgiven, they just wrote your name down on The Revenge List. Py accidently printed out his c-mail from Thai and left it laying around. :D

Had an absolutely lovely visit with my step daughter yesterday, it had been 12 years since we'd seen each other. She'll be stopping back by on Sunday on her way from from Williamsburg

After nearly two weeks of bad days, Robb has had a great day! It just proves what the Big Guy and I have thought for awhile now. Momma needs to be home with her boy.

Robb and I are going to Winchester tomorrow to see Al.

Fifth thought needs to go to bed!

New Years Eve was great and Baileys fuelled, meanwhile Mum was organically Gin fuelled! :lol:

Yesterday spend good times with friends round the corner, had lovely meal - fish pie made of prawns, monk fish and scallops all of which I'd not eaten properly before, more taken with the scallops and monkfish. Delicious afters and then watched Blu-Ray DVD The Curious Case of Benjamin Button :D Wobbled home full of Baileys but left my slippers behind at friend's house so her Grandson dropped them off today good job my feet were freezing!

More snow flurries today

Trying to stay awake, must get back into a routine

Happy New Year folks! :D

Having tossed Robb into the shower, I'm gearing us up to head down to Al's this morning.

The Big Guy's transfer has been pushed back a couple of weeks, the store's not yet ready to open.

So he's taking a week off for vacation. Shame I have to work

Py the Imperial has taken over his office, only coming out to scarf groceries and then return to perching on his swivel chair and glare at all who pass down the hall.

Fifth thought has gone back to figuring out how part time we can afford for me to work

Ok, the trip down and back to Winchester was seriously scary. I will never again drive I 81 in a severe wind alert.

Of course, had I been smart, I would have checked the weather before I left.

Robb enjoyed his visit to his brother's house and he especially enjoyed his Happy Meal lunch afterwards.

I have met Daisy. She IS Basement Cat. Srsly. Evil oozes from every essence of her being. She has my son under total and complete control. Py is so proud.

My other grandcat, Kitteh Van Halen kills with teh kewt. So now either place I visit, I am doomed, :lol: :lol: :lol:

Back to school tomorrow. After two weeks of wearing mostly jammies and sweats, it's back to button downs and ties.

I have a lot to do to today. Vacuum the floors, clean out more of the shop and get the tools stored (sad), organize my school backpack and maybe even put a polish on my shoes (black and brown, maybe the boots too).

By the gods, I hope I can land a job right after I graduate. Subbing is fun, but it isn't enough to pay the bills.

It's hard to believe this period of my life is almost over.

I don't think my insides match my outside.

I miss Tipper and Grim!

I ran out of steam this morning but I think it's back. I need to clean up the mess that is my office, while I have energy.

I should put photos in photo albums. I take too many pictures!

Went to see my son today. It was good to see him, it's been awhile.

He was so happy to see me and I was happy to see him. He had me laughing my ass off, as usual. It's just so hard to see him there. He doesn't understand how hard it is for a Mom. I know he doesn't have it easy but it's really his own fault.

Rode to Salem with Chandra in her Smart car. You really don't feel like you are in such a tiny car, until you get out and realize that it's just a couple of seats with a lid on it! :lol: As for the ride....give me my smooth riding Impala any day!

My step daughter stopped in again on her way home and had lunch with us. 12 years was too long not to be in touch. Robb was at his most charming.

Spent the day baking cookies, dealing with kitteh issues and listening to my happy child.

A period, after eight months of not having any. :( Does that mean I'm not menopausal after all?

I am not looking forward to Aunt Flo disrupting my sleep tonight. I haven't slept that well this weekend anyway.

My SIL's husband (he's Hubby's BIL; is he my BIL too?) has been having some health issues, and I think he's going to be having either a CT scan or an MRI this week. I hope he's okay; he's a really nice guy.

It looks like I won't be walking the dogs again any time soon; the puppy has been having some aggression issues with other dogs, and his mommy is going to try working with a trainer in hopes of making him dog park-friendly again. He's a real lovebug with people.

Have I mentioned I'm not pleased with the return of Aunt Flo? :evil:

I don't know where I heard that you would know for sure you were in menopause if you went a whole year without one.

I do wonder how I ever managed to hold down a job and deal with all the day to day stuff of life when I had one of these things every month. :shock: Oh yeah, I haven't worked in over three years. :oops: The past couple of days, it's felt more like an illness than a natural part of life.

Why did I have to complain about the slow drain in the shower? Stepdad went out and bought something for it, and the lovely sulphur aroma is filling the house...and I know it's only a matter of minutes before I have to go in there, 'cuz it's our only bathroom! :shock:

Cramps suck even more when you don't have a kitty to put on your belly. Not that Krissy would lie there willingly (once in awhile she did), but I could always hold her down. If I tried that with the next door kitty, I would probably get scratched and maybe bitten.

I had to stop eating the Nuts & Bolts. Hubby might want some.

I've still got the Christmas CDs in the CD player. :oops:

I'm glad I got the rest of the pansies planted yesterday. I don't feel like doing anything useful today!

YAY for RDS~Mommy25

Well, three good days in a row for Robb down the drain. He went right back to a bad one. He did some of his normal things, but did not eat and did not get dressed. He's currently devouring hamburgers and watching tv.

And unfortunately I was on the phone with my father when I discovered this, so my mother called back to simply say You are NOT quitting your job. I will not have a second failure in the family (I hope she doesn't call my brother that to his face). It would seem that unless I work full time, I am not pulling my weight and therefore a disgrace. Whether her grandson needs me home or not.

And the Big Guy's ex befriended him and all his friends on facebook. I'm still trying to figure out why he'd even stay in touch with somebody he has no children with and who stalked me for nearly 8 years.

sorry folks, Tink is having a really bad day and is going to go and wallow in hot chocolate. Thanks for letting me vent.♠

Momo

04-01-2010 16:23:21

Congrats on the house RDS! How exciting!

I am so sorry Tink, your mom is dead wrong you do what you need to do for your family. I don't know how you do it now, I worked part time for a bit and that was enough of a challange. I hope you guys figure out a way to do this soon, it really sounds like Robb needs you at home. There is nothing wrong with taking care of your family, that's an important job too!

Momo

04-01-2010 16:25:39

Just remember that people who have never lived with our kiddos really don't understand what goes into their care and so they can't understand. Your mom just doesn't know what she's talking about there's nothing else to it.

I was a rarity in my generation, I had a working mother. And for some reason she thinks its a bad reflection on her if I do not work full time. She was very proud when I was killing myself this fall working the full time job and two part time ones. And you are so right about not knowing how it is.

He does need me home, his drastic change today after having had such a good weekend just further cemented that. I'm looking for a part time job, just to bring in some extra but give me lots more hours at home. So far, no luck.

Thanks for your words, Momo, it really did help alot.

Was nice to stay home today and NOT be sick while doing it.

Wish I could take tomorrow off. Phone books came in today and I know the sub didn't get much of them done, because he's S.L.O.W!!!!!

Tara sent me video of Brighton. He's smiling up a storm these days! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

(((((Tink))))) What Momo said. Your mom has no idea what it's like to walk in your shoes. Working at home, taking care of your family, is every bit as important (probably even more so) as working outside the home. I haven't worked in over three years, and I don't feel like a failure.

So do I. He did his usual chores yesterday, in his pj's, barefoot. it's like part of him is functioning on auto pilot and the important things, like shower, dressing and eating shut down until I get home. And he was his normal happy fully functioning self over the weekend. All of which tells us, he needs momma.

Work, work, work. I hope the holiday pay is on my next paycheck. Being broke sucks.

Seeing the doctor on Friday to find out if I can go on the stop-smoking patch, and maybe get some Wellbutrin.

It's supposed to snow AGAIN tomorrow night. I stopped at the grocery, but everyone else was stocking up on supplies and there weren't any carts. I got peanut butter and soda. What more does one need to survive?????

I rewarded him with a clean litter tray. I wonder what he wants me to do to cure his cue to hurl, I know I have to hoover. I live in a house with 2 giant hamsters. Upstairs is covered in sawdust from their tray and downstairs has shredded cardboard bits courtesy of Billy hamster.

Billy went out in the snow today, he was striding through it like hey I know what to do with this stuff HAH! Merlin cowered beside the sofa peeping round the corner of it going brrrrrrr! He stayed and I amused him with paper and string until he ran off with it! :lol:

Had a lovely Christmas present arrive today from my m8 in Kent 2 nice tops. The Postie that delivered them this afternoon said he was now working 1hr 30mins overtime, I asked him if he was our usual Postie and he said everyone is covering this area atm.

Sorry I have been around for a while. The festive season was total madness for me, a whirl of kid-related engagements of Christmassy fun. Well, for Gabs at least. We parents were just the taxis.

New Years Eve saw me get drunk and fall down the stairs, landing on my tailbone. Ouch! I swear I bounced a couple of times.

Supposed to dump a bunch of snow on us this afternoon and evening. I hope we get a snow day out of it at least. Not looking forward to shoveling.

I can't believe how quickly the stuff I ordered from Colonial patterns got here! Now if only my fabric would get here.

How did the house get to be such a wreck?

It's weird how I don't noticed it's headed that way until I look around aghast. It's like we go from decent place right to hovel.

The vet called today to check on Gus. Which was really nice, and made me feel bad for thinking of going to a different one. Nothing personal, I just think work out better if I took my cats to a cat person (and reduce my feelings of failure).

I took a sick day today because I was sick. My co-trainer made me feel guilty for leaving her alone. HELLO?!?!?! I was alone last Wednesday, and they know more now than then. Get over it.

Getting irritated, but trying not to be.

Cold, cold, cold, so why am I chewing on ice? I know, it's a compulsion. I just feel really dumb.

The peanut butter toast I had for dinner seems to be staying put. :)

It was nice of your vet to call, but I understand. I finally found a vet that is totally into cats, and I feel so comfortable taking them to see Dr. Jennifer. The ride there is never fun but they like her and she likes them.

Tried a recipe out of my new Diabetic recipe book. Pretty tasty. :D

I want a cheese burger sooooo bad. Not gonna do that. Thankfully we live many miles away from temptation. Can't just drive a few blocks to give in.

Can't wait for today to be over, I'm so nervous about Vox getting fixed.

At least he'll be home this afternoon, poor boo.

After getting shoveling the driveway yesterday I got up and the snow had drifted over it in the night, had to reshovel quickly so that my husband could get Vox to the vet by 8am. The drifts were up to my hips in some places.

Now that the shoveling is done for the day the snow is quite pretty.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Only five hours of sleep again last night :(. Well, maybe I can take a nap later, though lately naps haven't been going too well.

Already seven books through The Wheel of Time. I thought they would last me longer. I'm coming up on the books I don't like as well, but I hear the latest book is quite good and I'm really looking forward to it.

I must have been really cold here last night because my windows are covered with ice.

I've been thinking a lot lately about what a coward I am.

I am extremely pissy/irritable. My apologies to anyone in the path of my wrath.

I also keep rhyming without meaning to.

Vox was high as a kite this afternoon on the pain meds they gave him, he kept attacking things that weren't there.

Finally I had to lock him in the room with me so that he would calm the hell down and not hurt himself. He's sleeping on me purring now.

I hope he'll still sleep tonight, eek!

He usually spends the whole night sleeping on either me or my husband. We might regret that once he gets a bit bigger.

All the kitties were sweet to him no one hissed at him for coming home smelling like the vet.

Vox seems to be healing up nicely.

Need to square away exactly what our plans are for the funeral before we are faced with really needing to make those plans (not sure if that makes sense outside of my head but there it is.)

Not looking forward to that conversation. I tried to bring it up earlier and could literally not make the words come out of my mouth.

My FIL's heart rate is now irratic and they can't get it to quit being like that, they are afraid to shock it because he is too frail. Really looking like the begining of the end though he's already lived longer than predicted by more than a week. (Or more than 5 years depending upon how you look at it.)

So many other things going on right now, I wish we could put them all off.

Hubby sent off the payment for the parking ticket his neices got when they were borrowing our car (they paid for it--got a money order and everything), and today we still got a notice saying it hadn't been paid. Stepdad went down there to check into it, and paid for it again. I wish we could have just sent a check in the first place--then I could always cancel it if it got lost in the mail.

We have a new visitor kitty (I'll try to get some decent pictures soon). Stepdad thought she was the same one that showed up earlier in the year (because they have the same botched declaw job), but Hubby and I are certain this is a different cat. This one is very vocal, comes in the house if you open the door, doesn't try to get away if you pick her up, and she purrs.

I did not sleep well at all last night, because I kept waking up to pee. :( I hope I don't have another bladder infection.

I have absolutely no direction or motivation right now, but I feel like I *shoud* be doing something useful.

I've been researching greeting card companies, and was very disappointed to find out that one of my favorites does not accept work from freelancers (not Hallmark; I already knew that about them).

Yesterday was our 2nd Gotcha Day anniversary. So glad Livi chose us.

Saturday is our wedding anniversary 12 yrs. It won't be much fun with the stones not passed yet. Tired of trying to flush them out. Unwanted body guests!

No news as to our next assignment. There are several places stateside we would rather not go to, all the really cold midwest ones and OKC. Now most of the Florida one and one in NJ would be ok. :lol: Maybe even Arizona or Hawaii.

I'm tired of all the if "you aren't supporting our military get in front of them stuff". I'm a friggin' vet, I don't like lip service, if you support our military than show it through your actions (quit bitching about being stationed here or away from home state, it's part of the f*&^ing job!).

I was trying to find Dandelion's breast cancer thread but I haven't been able to find it, was it in this forum or the health one?

Rightie was always the one that was more affected PMS-wise back in the old days, I hope that's what this is related to.

I couldn't find Dandelion's thread either. I think it's been deleted.

That's sort of my thought; something serious they would have had me come right back- at UCSD/Thornton Hospital everything is top notch; when my Dad had a colon cancer scare 15 or so years ago they had him back up there right away. There were appointment openings on Tuesday & Wednesday but I have a dental appointment Wednesday and Tuesday was no good for me either. When I called Monday to make the appointment they had openings any day I wanted.

Vox gets hilariously angry if my husband kisses him on the head. He growls and just has a fit.

I am allowed to kiss him but you can tell he's really suffering through it for my sake. :lol:

My husband shows an amazing ammount of restraint in the face of this brand of temptation and only kisses him a time or two a week.

I'm trying to keep myself from buying every emergancy preparedness thing that the Red Cross sells. They have an impressive stock.

My daughter upon reading the latest on Haiti yesterday said that G*d made a mistake. *sigh* It's hard to know where to begin with a statement like that I told her that G*d doesn't make mistakes but bad things still happen but she seemed unconvinced.

I'm cold and can't seem to get warm. I laid down wearing my long underwear under my flannel PJ's, but was cold. So I put on my polar fleece robe. Still cold. So I covered up with a fuzzy blanket. Then Gibson sat on me, STILL COLD!

People were sucky today. They pissed me off, and I got a bit pissy. Oops.

I had the worst dream last night. The baddest I've had in a loooong time. It has been haunting me all day.

Been feeling anxious for a few days, I think that has lead to the bad dream.

Some of that has been seeing the devistaton in Haiti. It hurts me to the core. I can't just ignore it on the news. It seems disrespectful to their plight to say "I can't handle this" and turn the channel. *sigh*

So glad to be able to sleep in this morning. Well, I got up at the regular time but was able to go back to bed. Get to sleep in tomorrow, too. Though Tuesday will be a bitch with backed-up mail, at least I know what to expect. 1/14 was my 15th anniversary at the PO. Can't believe I survived it this long!

82 resumes out, only one nibble.

The Big Guy doesn't want me going in at all anymore, there was an incident last week that he wants to go and beat the crap out of the boss over. He's annoyed because I'm trying to stretch it out until payroll for the rent check has passed.

Time to get Robb up and head out, and to all my friends who wrote those lovely excuse notes on Twitter, thank you! They made my morning.

It was raining pretty heavy a little while ago, but it seems to have let up.

I hope Hubby comes home soon.

My internet was a little wonky a few minutes ago. I kept having to log back on to MCHY for some reason.

I wonder if it will stop raining long enough for me to take a walk.

I'm hungry, but nothing sounds good. I don't suppose going out to eat is a good idea on a week when Hubby will probably work fewer hours due to the rain.

We had a tornado warning, but it didn't end up coming to our town. It did rain pretty hard for awhile in the afternoon, and other cities, especially those near the ocean, had scarier weather.

I didn't get much of anything done today, except the laundry (and I didn't get the bed made before Hubby got home), because it was hard to tear myself away from the news and weather reports, and Facebook.

I had to have sour cream and onion chips today, I couldn't stop myself. Hubby was craving a Snickers bar, and he hardly ever wants to eat sweets. I also got a Domo hat and lotto tickets when I went to 7-11.

We didn't see any kitties today, but the next door neighbor's puppy got out twice--turns out he's a digger!

I have to tear myself away from here and go to a journal writing class at church.

Grown men who have screaming cursing tantrums in the office while stomping up and down on boxes their sister dropped off to be mailed, SERIOUSLY need medication

All the stuff the shit fairy is dumping on me (car issues, sore tooth, Gus' eye, smoking withdrawals....etc) didn't seem so bad. At lease I didn't have to see a cat get killed. That would have been traumatic.

Small world! I'm really hoping it's not raining around then; heading up the 5 in a downpour is no fun. :shock:

Thank you all for the well wishes, I'm all clean, unpowdered and undeodorized and ready to be resquished. :oops: :? It's so cold around here; felt so nice to take a hot shower, my shoulders were so tense and achy esp. my right one...heck my whole right side is achy. I let the hot water run down over Rightie as I checked it out again (I can't find anything), the heat felt wonderful, all the discomfort melted away; it felt like PMS but I've been past that for a few years.

I've been going through periods of tenseness for the past week, I just want this done. The house being cold doesn't help much, within 15 minutes the aches are back. Ever since I got the phone call last week I've been sore and achy and imagining the worst.

I'm rambling on aren't I? Oh well....... I'm going to go take an Aleeve for the aches and an Ambien so I get a good night's sleep.

We flew through lessons tloday, only have spelling left to do. We did math first, that helped.

He's really starting to grok this math stuff, woot! It's slow going but I really want to make sure he knows how to do this stuff. My husband and I both got rushed through math in school and as a result both had a lot of trouble with it later in high school.

His science book is twenty years old, it gives him a laugh sometimes. (Reminds me of the time we were in a children's hospital waiting room and one of the books for the kids was titled something like "Someday man will walk on the moon" We were so tempted to pinch that book.)

I'm back and all's well! I went right in; no waiting, the tech took three or four new images then took them to the radiologist to examine then I went across the hall for an ultrasound. She explained just what she had seen, a tiny dot that was probably just normal tissue or a lymph node and that it was more likely than not nothing. Which is exactly what the ultrasound showed, nothing; she was very thorough but there was nothing abnormal.

I had no idea what to expect when I went in today, I was afraid I'd be sitting at home waiting for a phone call all day, not leaving in 20 minutes knowing it was all clear. I do have to go back in six months for another recheck but I'm fine with that! :)

Well, the decision has been made. I'm going in tomorrow and pretty much telling them Robb comes first, collect my toys and coming home. I have three days of leave left, that will take me to the end of the pay period.

Let's just hope I don't have to call in the Big Guns to get that last check.

Robb's had a really good day today, with Momma home.

I'm going to take a week or so and then start hitting the free lance market

Having the urge to shop, I should lay down with a cool rag on my head until it passes.

I'm doing a log cabin quilt with the scrap bag that finally came. I love it! So much fun playing with the colours and seeing what goes together.

I have ten squares done and need about thirty more. I get one or two done a day so it won't be too long before I need to figure out how to put them all together and quilt that puppy.

I wish we were in a position to adopt. But I know that's crazy talk, we've got enough on our plate with the two kiddos we have now.

IEP meeting yesterday. Those are always fun. This one was pretty productive at least. Though from here on out every IEP meeting is geared towards transitioning her to adulthood. Which is a little freaky to me because she just turned 14. And a large part of me just wanted to grab her and leave yelling "NO NO SHE'S A KID WE'RE GOING TO GO HOME AND BAKE COOKIES NOW YOU PEOPLE SUCK. A KID I TELL YA" But I stayed and participated in the meeting instead. Still not 100% sure that was the right choice. :lol:

I've been thinking randomly all day....

Very glad to hear that Tink has left Crazyland, best thing ever for Robb (and her, craziness wears you out).

I have serious kitten hunger - I want to hold a soft, warm little tubby kitty and smooch it. Myet lets me smooch her, but then she has to get down and wrap herself around the space heater, brat.

The rain stopped for a little while and it was a nice drive home.

I need a vacation, time to whine to Himself and remind him just how much fun we have when we take a little time to ourselves!! :wink:

Had to deliver in the rain today, just a lingering drizzle. Nice that it stopped when I got home! :roll:

So excited about babysitting Brighton on Sunday! *jumps up & down & does handstands for the 1st time ever* He's so stinkin' cute, it ain't funny. I get daily pics on my phone. Can't wait to hold him, kiss him, smell him!!!

Tomorrow is THE day!! Got my patches, putting one one 1st thing in the am. I know I can lick this. Hope my hubby can do the same. He's about 1/4 into the way of his last pack of cigs and then he quits. He better have it smoked by the time I get home from work...or he be smokin' in the rain! :lol:

Wish me luck!

I'm pretty sure I've got an absessed tooth. I spent most of the night laying awake debating the relative merrits of plyers vs. a piece of string+door knob and longing for death.

Is there any pain like tooth pain? And why is that exactly? Could it not hurt just enough that we know something is wrong?

I just went to the dentist last week for a cleaning. I had no pain in this tooth before I went to the dentist..coincidence? Ok probably.

We live a stone's throw from the dentist's office, I may just walk over there when they open and camp out until they can see me.

Friend suggested I pick up clients by doing home visits. Cheap, quick way to get more income for little investment.

Considering getting my instructor's license but it will cost a grand, and the classes are two hours away.

I don't want to creep anyone out here. This has been going on for 5 frickin years on and off. We have a computer set-up because he likes to get into some of my accounts and fuck with them...thus my Google post. It took a long time to get stuff removed from Google. A third party has gotten in the way of this little investigation...someone else has been Googling my name and has found various screen names and such to research me, I guess...they are in the way of the "little" investigation and are going to get pulled in if they don't back off. Some posts have purposely been placed, some by stalker X. Stalker Q is probably finding all sorts of info out, which is misleading...I can't explain it but nothing has happened here...but I have considered changing my screen name again even though I was told not to. It's the CPU linebacker.

I try not to tell anyone because they get creeped out...if you still have the name of your potential hitman...feel free to pm me. :wink: You know just as well cops can't do anything.

Emergancy root canal followed (almost immediately) by four hours of quality time babysitting my toddler niece= not a fantastic combo.

My mouth hurts less now than it did before said root canal though.

I am going to sleep sound tonight.

I'm not sure why my pharmacist filled the script my dentist gave me if he was going to turn around and tell me I couldn't take it with my regular medicine. Tell me that before you've filled it and I'm obligated to pay for it, k?

He did back peddle a tad and said I could take if "if the pain got really bad" What did he think I was going to take it for? Kicks and giggles? Sorry..between the pain and the lack of sleep I am in a piss poor mood.

Close- they injected me about twenty times and then worked fast. The dentist was impressed that we got through the procedure because he was not able to numb me up all the way. I was in nearly as much pain from the injections as I had been from the stupid abscess but it pretty much worked. I've had it done the way you describe too.

Sorry Allegro, I meant to respond to you on this because it is a "sore" subject for me...I can't take epi either for a medication I am on would cause a reaction...20 shots is a lot. Then, if they had to do that crap to me I would be going to sedation dentistry. I'm glad everything went okay.

(last time I had an injection was when I was 15 and had my wisdom teeth out, so they would have to tie me down...not a good dental patient)

Then I had to take the coffee filters back to Bro's house. Not his idea...hers. Pretty sure he was doing a dance after she left. She hinted as much but neither he nor I said a word! :lol:

She's also been bitching non-stop about the apartment complex that she just HAD to move to a year ago. Keeps talking about another place that she would LOVE to live. Well, she better hire movers.

Blah. Been felling that way for a few weeks. I think it may be related to being off Paxil. I tapered off following my doctor's instructions but after four weeks completely off I'm going back on (I was on the smallest dose of 10mg). I will be calling my doctor next week to tell her I'm back on it.

Going out of town to meet up with a friend I haven't seen in years. Looking forward to going someplace different.

I did Hubby's laundry today so he wouldn't have to do it later (he always does his own on Sundays, at the laundromat, even though we have a washer and dryer and I'm home most days).

It's raining today, but Allie kitty still showed up for a treat.

I was hoping for a lull in the rain so that I could walk around the garden before it got dark, but I guess the lull happened when I was at the dentist and the pharmacy.

What's a flame-bo?

So grateful that Vox's bloodwork is back to normal. We think he may just have been stressed out when they took it when he got fixed.

Going thrift shopping this morning! Woot! It's been MONTHES, I've been going through thrift shop withdrawl. Freaking lack of public transportation.

Dannon makes Greek yogurt now, yum!

Hoping to get the quilt top together this weekend.

OMG! I had to take a five hour energy shot to get through the day! I've been that busy at work ALL week, the fatigue was almost overwhelming...but my paycheck will be nice.

YAY...two days of NO HAIR...(ignores the piles of laundry, floors in need of vaccuming and we won't discuss the state of the toilet)

A friend stopped by to see me at work today..She asked if I had lost weight. I honestly don't know if I have, but it was a very nice complement

I need a Miss Mom topic STAT

Chernobyll is in her usual spot....blocking my view of the monitor..

ugh...why can't I go out without my stomach hurting. At least I can eat real food again...not losing the weight though!

I did not get anything worthwhile accomplished today.

I have to see when the Olympics start.

It looks like there has been an explosion in my drawers because some little creep is getting into them and pulling the clothes out and I know it's not Jinx. CASEY :!: You piss in there you have pissed your last.

It's not working. The blizzard looms like that monster in your closet when you were little.

Robb moving very slowly today, poor lamb, I think he's got achy knees like Momma does

We're near scary snow fall proportions up here, and it's still coming down.

Thank goodness they closed the Big Guy's store again before his shift started. Not that he could have gotten out, but at least he's not AWOL

I need to get outside and get some flowers planted in my own yard first.

Last night, I dreamed I got two dark gray kittens, and that I had to keep them in a fenced enclosure outside during the day because they made too much noise in the house and bothered Mom. :lol:

We're having a barbecue tomorrow for our anniversary.

Now I want kittens! :D

I still cannot believe the Big Guy's boss thought he was lying about today being our wedding anniversary when he asked for the day off last month.

We had hoped to be able to get away for an overnight trip. They thought he was making it up so he could stay home and watch Daytona

Needless to say, I spent our milestone day without him. :(

But we did manage to at least get out for a nice dinner.

He's off for the next two days and I have to work. :(

Really worried about a friend of ours. He's got type 1 diabettes and thanks to a stint of being laid off he's got to wait for half of forever for his insurace to actually cover his condition. And since he is back at work he isn't poor enough for the drug company to help him pay for his insulin..if he can find a doctor who will even call in the script.

I don't want him to become a "death via lack of insurance" statitistic.

I thought the kiddos had the day off of school. Actually they were supposed to get out at 11. They denote this on the calander by putting a slash mark in the 1/2 centemeter box vs. an x. Apparently it's in two different shades of mustard yellow but my colour vision isn't that acute.

So my daughter's teacher scared the crap out of us this morning by calling early to see if she was coming in when she didn't get off the bus. Phone waking me from a dead sleep- I assumed it was about my FIL.

Nice to wake up in the morning with a sudden huge influx of addrenaline and nothing for it to do but make you into a ball of anxiety!

Felt good not going to work. Holiday so I wasn't staying home sick and feeling guilty about it.

I slept in, had a little breakfast....then took a nap. All snuggled with kitties. Beautiful!

I did make a pot of split pea soup. I made it in the crock pot so not much effort needed there. :lol:

I'm worried about my friend who lost her job two weeks ago. I haven't heard anything from her in over a week, although it did look like she was able to get back on FB and play a little Farmville today.

It rained again last night, after more than a week of no rain. I'm supposed to do yardwork for my friend's mom again on Monday, but it's supposed to rain.

I have been going for walks regularly, even when I don't feel like it. Fortunately, I live within walking distance of an art supply store, at least one coffeehouse, a nursery and an antique store that also sells plants, so I at least have motivation. :lol: There is also Baskin Robbins, but I haven't been there in months.

I weeded Krissy's garden the other day. I hope she appreciates it! :lol:

Can I have permission to shoot whoever it is who keeps going by on a motorized scooter at 10pm? :twisted:

Squatter check today. I'm really really really hoping he goes away on his own and soon!!!!!!! Plus I want the stent out. If I do what I would normally do I end up having to sit still for 2 hours until the pain passes.

Feel guilty for Liv not having a birthday party this year. I'm afraid of planning one then having PITA (above post) do something where she can't have the party. :( She does have lots of presents from us to make up for it and we will have a cake. She likes cake.

Been a bit blue lately. Missing my folks. Would love to talk to either of them, one would be helpful regarding the squatter (doc assigned to is eh, urologist is good just English is a bit better than medium) and the other would laugh about me being woken up at 4:30 a.m. yesterday.

I need brain stimulation!!!!!!! Exercise, too!!!!!!

I still don't understand this thing with the insurance company except they will make more money if I don't get an attorney...but I REALLY don't want to do that thought case was closed. If they offer me a pay out, might as well just take it extra $$$ to pay off bills, etc. :roll:

All week today has been weighing on my mind and I couldn't remember why.

Then I saw the date- the 24th. It's the day my FIL gets switched to medicaid and so likely the day his feeding tube will be removed.

I hope that my FIL is as out of it as he seems and isn't suffering.

My UTI seems to be making a b-line for my kidneys. Damn it.

I need to feel fine for a couple of days to catch up on housework and make sure we are ready to leave town on short notice.

OK JUST NOTICED IT'S THE 23rd. Gah. Such a freaking long week already I was sure it was Wednesday. So...yeah.

I tried to refill my two prescriptions and the one from the root canal doc at the same time, but I had to have the doctor's office send in a prescription for more thyroid meds, and when I got to the pharmacy, it wasn't there. :(

One of the PBS stations has the Mark Twain Prize awards show for Bill Cosby, and just about everyone on it is FUNNY!!!

Evil EVIL cat

Got some good news this morning, I've been picked up by a contract company that will let me work from home! The money's not that hot, but hey, no travel time, I can work in my jammies if I want and best of all, I'll be home with Robb.

And I can continue to work on my own projects as well. A win win for Tink

Maybe they are together, I can't find that evil little cat anywhere. Rotten beast, I've just crawled all over the floor in the dining room, looking under all the furniture.

I know we will be, the money's nothing to brag about, but it will cover groceries and half the rent, what more can I ask for. I'll be home with Robb and still being productive.

If this stone decides to leave it's gonna hurt!!!! :shock: :( I understand why the doc doesn't want to deal with the ureter. Now I wonder if the left is the same size.

Stent comes out Monday!!! I feel bad it will be done on Liv's 3rd bday but I need it out. We will celebrate on Sunday.

Doubt we will go see her grandpa in Munich. I'm afraid of going and the stone deciding to exit and me being incapacitated on the floor with just Livi. I hope he understands. I'm already accused by family of keeping her away from them.

That said, it's certainly not impeding on my total and complete enjoyment of said incredible chocolate. I only wish I had bought more bags before they disappeared after Valentine's Day.

Working from home is going to be cool. I don't have to wear SHOES!!! Or make up.

I do however, have to finish restructuring my hovel aka, home office area and I haven't gotten very far doing so today.

I am 3/4 way through The Lovely Bones. I have never read a sadder book. I was crying while I was reading. I just got it yesterday and hope to finish it tonight. I can't imagine going to sleep without reading the rest.

Speaking of good, Hershey's Bliss "milk chocolate with meltaway centers" are yummy. They're very cocoa-y

English muffins are the very definition of good. And make a fine well rounded meal. I had that for dinner last night myself. Only with apricot jam. And butter of course.

My father in law died yesterday. I'm still feeling numb about it. I think we did a lot of our mourning in December and Janaury when we were out to see him knowing it would be the last time.

Airline prices are insane. For the four of us to fly out next weekend for the memorial we could cover about a third of a move back there. :shock:

So it's likely my husband will go by himself. Easier on the kiddos anyway as it would just be for the weekend. Rough on my husband though, if only I could be in two places at once.

So sorry Momo. Hugs to you and your family. Have you checked last minute deals on Travelocity? Sometimes they have really good rates. Priceline and Hotwire too, but you have to stick to the itinerary and not change dates.

And I'm sorry you're still dealing with that damn stone, neko. You should not have to be in pain (and have the anticipation of greater pain) for so long.
I thought of you when I read this:

ďYes I got him a gift. He had a kidney stone. You piss a rock through your pecker, you deserve more than just a pat on the fucking back."


It's my niece's birthday celebration today. I'm trying my experiment to get there an hour ahead of time, give her a hug and her gift and GTFO before the perfumed in-laws arrive.

I think, and I hope, she's old enough to understand, and I hope that they are honest with the in-laws about why I'm not there.

We did check them but the trouble is they are not as helpful if you aren't flying out of a major hub. (vs our cute little hick airport) Ended up paying over 600 dollars for my husband's ticket. Which is fine, we had savings to cover that. We were just there with the kiddos in January so I think people will understand when the kids and I are no-shows. I don't know that our two would be able to handle a funeral very well anyway. We got to see him to say goodbye so that was the important part. It was also way easier to find flights with space for one vs space for four.

He'll be staying with family and surrounded by family and friends while he is there so as much as I hate to send him by himself he won't really be by himself.

Goodness! I'm glad you all got to see him and love on him and say goodbye to him. That's the most important thing, and I'm sure the family will remember that more, and understand why you can't be there now. And it would be awfully hard on the kids.

Shew!!! Thai is a stinker! The litter box is down the hall, in the spare bedroom and he just reeked up the place!

When I got back from the route today and there were people milling about at the counter, in the dark. Freaked me out....the PO closes from 12:30-1:30. The clerk forgot to lock the lobby door! :shock:

What a nice day. Daffodils, cherry trees, azaleas blooming. I sneezed my head off but I still love seeing them.

I whacked my elbow on the closet door this morning and it still HURTS! Of course I'm banging it on everything now that it's sore!

Going to take C to Alice in Wonderland on Friday for her birthday! :D

I got cheese! The spensive kind. Yum!

Time to wax, something about being almost 40 you look like you are growing a beard.

Yay! We might be able to go to Big Sur for a weekend, just don't want to float away with any Tsunamis. :(

10 hour workday, 8 of which were spent running up and down the aisle answering newbie questions.

I might not wake up tomorrow.

Bonus! Free stuff-I forgot to yesterday afternoon and only realised it at about 7PM tonight! Thankfully nobody took me up on that offer.

The trash men broke my trash bin. :( :( assholes.

UGH. Tired.

Hyperventilating at costs of things. Geeze Louise!!!!!

Getting into the swing of things for this working at home gig. It's not going to be bad at all. Just the first week or so will be really slim check wise.

Meanwhile, I'm filling in time between introduction teleconferences by cleaning out my file cabinet and actually trying to organize our household mess so I can get drawer space for the office stuff.

Need to finish my certifications for another place as well. Probably going to have lots of time on my hands in about six weeks, need to keep busy.

We really need sunshine, Robb is seriously drooping today

MarciaCat

02-03-2010 12:14:46

Packs up some San Diego sunshine to ship to Tink and Robb. Murph sends some to Sahara and Py as well.

I guess I need to get out to the nursery soon and get a few tomato plants, no more procrastinating! :lol:

Good vibes to all who need them.

Thank you Marciacat! I can't tell you how badly we need that here.

Well shit. I 'lost' a dental crown at dinner tonight. I knew it wasn't secure; it had come out a week or two ago when I was sick but I cleaned it and put it back with the temp cement packet I had from the dentist and sort of forgot about it till tonight. We were out to dinner for my sister's b-day and I was just finishing my seafood stew when I noticed it was missing! :shock: :shock: I guess I swallowed the damn thing! :oops: :roll: Fortunately there isn't an exposed nerve, but guess where I'm going tomorrow morning?

I'm so pissed. I didn't have time to go on Facebook yesterday, and tonight I was finally going to have time to get caught up, when it got stuck on me and wouldn't go anywhere. :-( I really don't have much time to spend there tomorrow, especially not if I'm so far behind. :(

I guess that means I should have plenty of time to download doggie photos out of my camera and try and remember how to use Photobucket again.

We came up with a better name for him: Tequila!

Hubby has been sick the past few days, but has been going to work anyway. He's reached the point where he feels better but sounds worse.

{{{MarciaCat}}} I'm sorry about your crown.

Tummy bug last night and today. I guess I can blame that for leaving out an entire phrase before.

I had forgotten to lock my front door on Sunday afternoon and didn't remember until Monday night, but I just wrote "forgot to."

I slept most of the day today, but couldn't eat, so I conned my dad into getting me some sugar soda to keep my blood sugar up.

I just hope it's done. I've got to go back to work tomorrow.

I am so very proud of myself, when I went to the dentist at 9:30 this morning to have my missing crown replaced Dr Muir found a bit of decay on a neighboring tooth and wanted to 'sand' it away without numbing it if I could tolerate it which I did! :shock: :shock: :D Dr Muir told me "Be sure and hold it over your Dad's head tonight" (he can't go for a cleaning without taking a tranquilizer, never mind actual work on a tooth!!) which I will! No Novocaine, no headphones with loud music to drown out the noise or anything...I'm so proud of that! I'm lucky that I've never really had a problem getting dental work done; having blood drawn, now that's where my problem is! :oops: :oops:

Good for you MarciaCat! I did that once, and won't be doing it again.

My tummy is better, thank goodness.

I guess Gus is feeling better too since he was running around like a nunu earlier.

Training newbies again tomorrow. UGH. One of them got snarky with me on Monday. I'm full up on snark, so she better check it tomorrow.

Good letter! We get zero as far as services the last couple of years. We would be elligable for repspite but have no one to do the care so its not worth bothering with and we don't qualify for anything else. It's funny people used to troll the special needs forums I moderated at yelling at us about all the funds we were getting and tax money of theirs we were taking up. Pffffft. They think there are all these programs and services and monies..whatever.

Finals week at my daughter's school means totally screwy schedule. Luckily tomorow there's no school at all because the half days are really throwing her.

My brother-in-law is in the hospital now with uncontrolled diabettes and hypertension. We are all hoping he is out of there in time for the memorial on Saturday. Thank heavens they caught it when they did, it sounds like he was about ready to stroke out.

So much going on. Brain fried.

Hope your brother in law is doing better today, Momo

I've also never been able to figure out where people got the concept that there are all these programs and and all this funding. There really never has been and I think the Big Guy still carries some guilt with him because prior to our joining him in Virginia, Robb was in a program. But even when Robb was in school and in the 'system' , the funding for programs was very small.

That letter goes out today, btw.

If you chill and salt rim the glass first, that will probably go down much easier ;) Seriously though, I hope you feel better very soon.

Nothing like having somebody watch you sleep all night to make you really tired in the morning. Py, I know you're there, just knock it off, ok.

He's sitting right here, looking right at me so I know he knows where I am.

The computer room is cleaner and more organized than it's ever been I think.

My poor boys are freaked out because:
1) I cleaned out their water fountain
2) I ran the vacuum.
3) Gus ran into the laundry room when my arms were full so he got yelled at and I shut the door to my bedroom so he couldn't lay on my clean laundry.

Yesterday at hell went better than anticipated at least with MIL/FIL. One BIL has called the Big Guy selfish and self centered, the other thinks he's going with the Big Guy permanently. WRONG on both counts.

Ok, so I am glad I am not the only one suffering from cyber guilt. I hardly ever go into SuperPoke pets anymore and when I do, I feel like the world's worst cyber pet owner, lol.

Farmville gives me a chance to interact with my niece in Texas as well as my cousins youngest boys, one in Texas and one in Indiana so that game's probably here to stay.

I can't bring myself to abandon cafe world even though it annoys the crap out of me with all the pop ups and interruptions. Sahara loves it. Seriously loves it. He's totally mesmerized by the little people moving around.

How sad is that, I still play a game that bores me solely because it brings my cat pleasure.

Although he's also become totally addicted to my guilty pleasure game that lives on the laptop. So maybe I can wean him away from one to the other.

Oatmeal is filling though, to the point that I frequently forget to eat lunch until like 3 pm.

But I had cold cereal this morning instead and now it's 10:30am and I am STARVING. Hmmm. Something to be said for wallpaper paste apparently.

Ordered some more fabric scraps. (This time a Moda scrap bag and a scrap bag put together by a quilt shop so these will be kind of matchy-matchy scraps.)

Stepdad and Tequila went to Petsmart to buy doggie clothes--I think he's looking for a leather (probably not *real* leather) jacket for him to wear.

Hubby is still kind of sick--lingering cough, etc., probably because he has only rested on the weekends, and hasn't missed any work.

Back to work today. Didn't feel great but definately felt a bit better. No fever anyway, that's an improvement.

Soooo cold today, the wind was icy. No snow today, though there was a bit on my car this morning. Might be more coming along tonight. Yay spring! :roll:

Thought my books would be here in the mail today. Disappointed! :(

I think it's time for a nap with cats. :)

I'm just about to rip my arm off. Itchy, red, and swollen-not a good look for me, but it could be ugly if it would just be ugly and stop screaming at me.

Miserable day.

Oh good! The boys knocked stuff off of the coffee table! How did they know it would look better on the floor?

Still didn't place in the photography contest. I knew I wouldn't but it's still discouraging.

I feel like a pariah, which of course is just my mood, but knowing isn't helping.

Looks like the Big Guy and Dave have worked out his upset from Sunday today with a father son day.

Heaven help me, I have agreed to keep Basement Cat Jr. I mean my adorable little grandcat Daisy while Al goes to Florida for a week.

Last night, she was swinging from curtain to curtain while Al was trying to talk to me on the phone. You could almost hear her Tarzan yell.

Need to finish up today's research project and get dinner started.

Slowly getting into the swing of things with the work at home stuff. I get way more done between 11 and 6 than I do in the morning.

I'm having a really rough night. I caught Tipper's cold. My throat hurts, my nose is stopped up and I can't sleep. I can;t take anything for it because of the meds I'm on.

I can't spell, either. I have to keep going back and editing my mistakes.

Hungry. Hate being hungry in the middle of the night; dealing with it seems like too much work.

Nice cup of tea...

I'm feeling more like myself today. I haven't cried yet today (for me, nicotine withdrawal brings on excessive weeping instead of excessive bitching).

I'm going to put on my crazy cat lady hat and ask AT&T if I can install Uverse by myself. Since strange men stomping around the house= stressed out Gus= $150 minimum vet bill, it would be worth looking like a dork.

Yesterday, I almost decided to stay in bed, but I went to the career group at church, and ended up being invited to stay for the home-based business seminar--for free. I had a very busy day!

So today, I did absolutely nothing. I caught Hubby's cold, so I have to rest and get well in time for my crown prep on Tuesday!

I had a horrible night, having to get up every 90 minutes to pee. :(

It's so nice to have a little doggie to hang out with. He's very affectionate.

I hope I can sleep through the night tonight.

Just depressed the heck out of my son by asking him which one of the beanie babies that my husband brought back (from my FIL's collection) he wanted.

He won't pick, he's going to let our daughter pick then he wants me to hide his. I told him someday he'll be glad he has it.

I loved my FIL but more than I am hurting from his death it hurts so much to see my husband and kids hurting from it.

I wish the sun would come out.

At least it's warmer (in the fifties!)

bonus thought- my fabric came. The Moda scrap bag is going to make an awesome baby quilt (probably two baby quilts.)

badplantmommy

12-03-2010 12:17:05

(((((Momo & family))))) I think saving the Beanie Baby for your son is a good idea; it may end up being a comfort to him later.

I need to take a shower, but I guess I'll wait until Stepdad comes home from the doctor. He might need to use our only bathroom when he gets home, and I need to check up on the doggie every few minutes anyway.

Listening to an Elvis Costello CD, and loving it!

That was a very kind gesture for your family to share your FIL's treasures with those who loved him.

I had a lovely evening last night. Pizza (extra cheese with green peppers and mushrooms-waaaay too good), the Outsiders, and Gibson on my lap.

I'm sort of becoming a vegetarian. Not out of a philosophy, just out of laziness since I can only eat organic meat now and Whole Foods is a PITA.

Still battling depression. Psychiatrist upped my sleeping tablet dosage. Thanks to this condition, I experience huge energy level fluctuations amongst other things, which really impact on my daily life. One minute, I'll feel 'normal', next minute as if I have run a marathon and my head is full of cotton wool. Weird and annoying. Don't even add the 'wanting to burst into tears at inopportune moments' thing. :roll:

Worried about losing my job over this. Meeting my boss at my house this coming Thursday. Wish me luck.

Gabs is doing her cycling proficiency lessons in school. Because she's so big now (even at age 10), Lupus has bought her a ladies bicycle. I have dug out my old one (bought in autumn 2000 because of the fuel protests in the UK at the time), and begun riding with her. I'm working on customising both when I have the energy. The exercise should be good for my depression and overall fitness.

Tonnes of work to do in the gardens. Need to plant vegetable seeds, potatoes, window boxes. The weather has been so horrid this long winter that plants are very late coming out. For example, snowdrops usually flower in late January where I live. This year, they are approximately six weeks late. Same for the crocuses. Hope that we have now seen the last of the frosts! (fingers crossed).

Cleaning today! That's an order!

I didn't even try to get up in time for church today, but I don't think it would have been nice for me to go and give people my cough anyway.

Got all the laundry done today. Yeah! Yuk!

We went to Shari's for breakfast this am. Bad stuff, but I had a spinach omelet, scrapped off the cheese and only ate half of it. Still feel guilty.

But I look in the mirror and I can see that my face looks thinner, along with the rest of me. But the face thing just makes me really happy. I lost my extra chin! :D

Sahara is wedged between my desktop and laptop again, forcing me to pull out a tv table to actually work on.

Cat Wars III now appearing in my livingroom. But the grumpy old man version. Just alot of name calling as they encounter each other.

Just as long as they stay off my desk today, I've got a ton of server work to do today, I do not need Py's technical support help.

My niece is sick today, poor boo, but it meant she went to the doctor instead of coming here and I got a nap instead of chasing a toddler.

So I took a nap, hear that brain scars? A nap was taken! You can quit with the pain now.

I'm not coughing that much, but I still don't feel well enough to actually do anything.

I swear, my little doggie can FLY! :lol:

Figuring out what to eat is challenging; not only do I need things that are soft and easy to chew, but I can't eat dairy products within two hours before or six hours after taking the Cipro unless they're part of a larger meal with other foods. That cuts into my ice cream diet!

My sleep schedule is all cattywompus. :shock: It would be even if we hadn't just started daylight savings time. I either stay up or can't fall asleep until after 2 a.m. I sleep better in the morning, but sometimes the phone rings. (Or Hubby forgets to take his work radio with him. :roll: )

Had a really nasty bad dream last night. Woke up with my nightie soaking in perspiration and my TMJ syndrome in overtime. I must have been clenching my jaw in my sleep.

Attended a very interesting talk last night in support of Lupus, who suffers from migraines. Dr Silver, a consultant neurologist, was detailing how many illnesses are misdiagnosed migraines, including TMJ and sinusitis! Some symptoms are also linked, he believes, including diarrhoea, nausea, what he calls 'Alice in Wonderland' syndrome (where you perceive yourself or parts of your body as bigger/smaller than you surrounding) and many other things. He's regarded as a bit of a maverick in his field, but he believes that he make many migraine sufferers feel better by putting them on a detox diet of no painkillers and no caffeine. In the first week or so you feel lousy, and then you slowly start to improve. Interesting.

My boss paid his house visit on Tuesday, BTW (I got the days mixed up - shows where my head is at right now!). It went very well. No mention of dismissal, offers of help from the company and the only negative thing is that I am going on half pay from the 26th. It was nice to see people from my workplace, and we even had a laugh at times.

Had a very bad upset tummy yesterday morning. Spent a fair amount of time chained to the toilet. However it is probably my own fault for re-heating the fish and chips from the day before. Yes, I am an idiot. :oops:

Hubby came home early and went to bed. :( I just wish he'd get over this thing. We're all sick, but he's been sick 2 1/2 weeks. He went to the clinic on Monday and Tuesday after work and got shots and meds and stuff, but he's still sick. Maybe he needs to go to the doctor again.

On a happy note, I peeked in on him, and Tequila was sleeping next to Hubby's legs, on his back, legs in the air.

Some guy ran into Hubby's neices car (Stepdad owns it but kind of rents it to them). They're not hurt, the car isn't that badly damaged, it was the guy's fault, and yay, he actually does have insurance!

I'm doing laundry today. I need to go for a little walk or something, and gradually get my strength back; I'm weak from not doing much of anything for a whole week.

Cramps, ugh! :(

Snowing, not sticking to streets.

Very thirsty.

I left the window open last night, which didn't help with the room temp. :roll:

I need to at least vacuum this crap up today and then I think I really will call the rec center, classes are on Saturday...hmm. See what the economy does? Brings in older lifeguards. Wonder if I could pass the physical test tho'

However, duty calls so napping will have to wait until tonight

19-03-2010 15:40:02

The last load of laundry is in the dryer. I need to go mail something, and maybe do a little weeding before it gets dark...Oh yeah, and I need to make the bed before Hubby gets home, in case he wants to get in it.

I took Tequila for a walk around the block today. I almost forgot the little plastic bag, but luckily, I remembered it. He ran out of pee before we were halfway around, but still wanted to stop and lift his leg on bushes. I told him he needed to drink more water.

It's just as well that I didn't have any expectations of doing anything out in the backyard, as Stepdad said there was a big swarm of bees in one of the peach trees (they always do that when the hive in the neighbor's shed divides; maybe the ones that stay will mellow out for awhile now).

I hope the bees are gone tomorrow, because it looks like it's up to me to tackle the 5 & 6' tall weeds that are still there (Hubby weeded some last weekend, before he had a relapse). I am just going to cut them down with the long-handled pruners so they're not standing tall and making our yard look like hell to the neighbors. We can pick them up and throw them in the green waste bin when we feel like it.

I am finally feeling better. I don't plan on overdoing it--I'm usually pretty lazy, but not being able to do anything for several days has made me weak, and made my back kind of stiff.

What I thought was a minor upset has turned into a full blown illness. Poor Robb, high temp, vomiting and just plain miserable. He's tucked into bed and hopefully more rest will work.

He wanted breakfast, that was a disaster.

Counting the minutes until Bruce's plane lands tonight.

Need to go and finish cleaning the kitchen, vacuuming will wait until Robb wakes up again.

Wishing the car would start, I really need to get to the drug store.

Had to buy a new monitor today - old one went pffffffffftt last Tuesday. At least a got a bigger screen size at the same price as the "sale" one I saw in the ad!!

Himself is off picking up youngest daughter from college and doing the "visit the grandparents thing", daughter had a rough 1st semester and needs a pep talk from Dad.

Work is wearing me out - no one has any money, the insurance companies are playing every game they can to avoid paying claims and I'm trying to do next year's budget for my Pain clinic.

My shoulder hurts - too much computer using!

Thanks, Tonks, he managed a bit of soup and toast about 45 minutes ago and so far so good. He also wanted to get dressed and is now stringing some beads, slowly for sure, but everything points to his feeling better.

Ok, dinner was a disaster and his fever has spiked back. He's been tucked back into bed and I've asked Daddy to stop for some Gatorade on his way home.

His plane is landing just about NOW. :D :D :D :D

Fingers crossed that this is just a 24 hour thing and that tomorrow will be a better day.

He's not been sick like this since we took him to Albuquerque to visit his sister nearly five years ago.

Yes, Tink is freaking. He can't tell me what's wrong, the questions I ask don't always register. That always makes me feel so damned helpless.

having to leave a quilt on my bed just for Luna-tic who is determined to change the color of my coverlet. She's lying on the quilt....for now.

Ashley is dilated 3cm, and is 50% effaced...That means...she ain't in labor yet...sigh no snorgling a little cabbage patch baby boy quite yet.

Today was not my day at work. I messed something up for one of our touchiest clients (Madam Le Micromanage-my name for her not her real name) and have stressed over it all day.

When she asked for a moment by moment accounting of my hours, I get the feeling she plans to dispute the bill because I messed up a domain name transfer.

Oh well, all they can do is fire me, right? Even though everybody else I'm working with likes me. I am the 4th VA she's had, so that will probably go in my favor.

Apples to Apples is such a great game. Just finished playing a marathon game of it with my son. Much fun.

I hate that change is so hard for my son. Warned him we might move in the relatively near future. He wants to go back but at the same time hates to move. Doesn't want to have to "start over" again. :(

He wishes we had just stayed there but I think he understands why we couldn't do that. In the end he decided it was worth it because we got to (in his words) "save Vox" :)

Trying to figure out if I am being paranoid about my health or should see if I can get checked for ulcers. (My mom died of bleeding ulcers. I've got a few symptoms but they could be a thousand things other than ulcers.)

Do you THINK I WANT to be here? Think again. Gossiping is just another form of hatred. People have to do things to survive and I am grateful he is here. Why am I even bothering with this here when there is a major impending death in my family, at least to me, more than a father sometimes? You love twisting the knife when people are at their lowest.

I got a nice message on Facebook from a guy I went to school with. He said he was sorry the other kids had treated me so badly in elementary school and that he was sorry he hadn't tried to stop them.

There is a Facebook page in memory of people who went to my high school, who have died.

Gee, that's something they maybe should have checked before making the offer, doncha think?

Grrrr. My boys are very upset.

Second full day of BCJr in residence. My dining room buffet is still growling and spitting at irregular intervals.

She has made a few momentary appearances. I think she hates us all this morning. I feel bad for her, she is missing Al terribly and apparently Gram is not an acceptable substitute.

Although she did not growl at Grandaddy when he laid down on the floor to talk to her. So maybe it's just the boys and I she hates.

Uncle Sahara is hold up under my bed. He actually wants to be friends, Daisy does not. His overture of friendship did not end well. Daisy 1 Uncle Sahara 0

Uncle Py is currently burrowed in the pillows on my bed. Looking really really REALLY put out. The dining room belongs to him, or so he thought. Daisy 2 Uncle Py 2 - we're in stalemate mode.

Spring is definately here. Hardly any snow left and everything is greening up!

We already have a bunch of things growing in our garden. Onions left from last year, strawberries, some sweet peas, and a couple tiny lettuce plants.

Less pressure to plant a ton of different things this year as we just joined a CSA. So I'm going to concentrate on a few things we love. Like leeks.

Spring break was nice but it's good to get back to our normal routine. Our daughter was seriously melting by yesterday. (Sit down and sob in the produce section of the grocery store melting. :( )

GACK! I can see a really dusty spot I missed during my cleaning session. :oops:

Gussy screamed me awake this morning. :lol: Maybe he forgot I told him I'm on vacation and was worried about me oversleeping. :lol: And Gibson is being worrisome. He keeps disappearing. Someone please close the portal!

I'm going to the store to get supplied to try to make them a toy, since none I've found are Gus-and-Gibson proof.


I think Py has opened all of them in hopes of either a. gathering forces to deal with his niece or b. coaxing her to find someplace else besides HIS dining room to spend the week.

^^^I guess Gibson is doing his part then, because he literally disappears. I look everywhere, calling him, and the desperation eventually shows, then when I turn around, and then turn back, there he is, slinking and looking guilty, coming from the direction I had just been.

My house is tiny for goodness' sake. There are not that many hiding places! :lol:

I feel really out of it. I forgot to get dressed yesterday and I think I could forget again today if I let myself. But when I do that, come 4 o'clock I always begin to feel skanky.

We've had a couple days of nice weather, but it's supposed to snow again this weekend :P

March seems to have gone by very fast.

Bleah. My brain is mush. Maybe I'll try to get in the shower.

Why is it that every time Les Schwab changes my tires over something goes wrong. I used to lose a wheel cover everytime now they lock so that doesn't happen.

I sat in there for a hour while they 'fixed' a tire they couldn't find any thing wrong with, that I have had to put air in twice since Sat. :roll:

At least I had 'Under The Dome" to keep me company. That book always brings comments. Sometimes from the sheer size of it, or from people that have read it and recognize it by it's size! :lol:

Bought a bottle of Rosa Regale for our anniversary tomorrow, but I forgot a card. Have to do that after work tomorrow!

3 more days until we go to the beach. YAY!!! I can't wait to see Brighton, and his Mommies, too. Of course. :lol: They can go do their own thing this week-end and Grandpa and I will take care of Bright. Taking him to Columbia Sportswear and decking him out. I get an awesome discount there. 8)

My back aches, my hand ache, my hips ache, my knees ache and so do my feet - all I did was sit in front of my computer today and work on that bloody damn budget. Fibromyalgia is such a joy.

I hated algebra in school and I still hates it!!!!

Accountants who do not pay attention to what they are doing should be shot at dawn, with a sharpened paperclip loaded rubberband gun, then burned!!!

If I had a crystal ball I could probably make better guesses than I did today.

Finally got my temporary crown today. In a little over two weeks, I get the permanent one. Yay!

I have had to get up early the past two days because one of our cars was in the shop, so I had to give Hubby a ride to work.

I did a lot of gardening work yesterday, and I am still tired. More gardening tomorrow, at least until it rains.

Most of the bees in the peach tree have either died or are very sluggish.

I finally got my Girl Scout cookies a few days ago.

I'm sick sick sick. Just the usual Fybro/nuero junk ramped up a bit. I'm trying to plow on through because it's been over a week now and I can't just get nothing done.

I know that not resting and pretending my body isn't crapping out on me will likely backfire but hell's bells..sitting around doing nothing isn't helping much either so what have I got to lose?

I need to get the house clean, the teacher is coming on Friday, I need to get the yard work done (the weather is nice and I can't let it slack and not look as good as the neighbors' yards or my next door lady will get in a twist over it.

And school needs to be done. So I stumble on through doing what needs to be done and hoping tomorow when I wake up I can do it all again.

The weather is gorgeous! Amazingly warm and pretty today.

Busy busy day. Lots of stuff done, means more hours to bill :)

Daisy has a new games, Tipping Uncle Sahara. Endlessly. I'm not sure who is less amused by this new development, me or Sahara.

But at least the blood curdling snarls and howls have died down to the occasional dirty cat name calling and spitting. For now.

I still feel like I am walking on eggshells in my own house, though

Played hooky yesterday afternoon with the Big Guy and Robb after his case manager meeting. We have a very nice lunch out at Ruby Tuesdays

Nothing seems to be working well. Last night, I deleted an app from my iPod because of my goddamn jumpy mouse. I can't get it back either.

I just tried to e-mail my friend, and my cursor disappeared so I couldn't tell where I was typing.

Gus clawed my leg, which is normal, but things are hurting more today for some reason.

I'm planning on cooking tonight and am crossing my fingers that that little venture doesn't crash and burn too.

I need to call my sis' MIL to tell her that I won't be attending Easter dinner or any other joint family gathering because they can't control their perfume wearing. :(

I actually worked two days this week. Not full days, actually a total of 11 or 12 hours altogether, but it was yard work and it can be exhausting. The other days this week, I have not done much, other than go to appointments.

I got our taxes done today. We broke even--we owed for Federal, because I didn't have any taxes taken out of the Unemployment, but we get something back from the state. And of course, I paid to have them done.

I've got to go mail that Census thing, and go to the bank. I was going to go to Michaels and Target today, but maybe not. I'm too lazy to do anything I don't really have to. :oops:

We are still adjusting to life with a dog. He now notices pens, and Stepdad caught him about to chew one, I guess. I have to be careful what I leave lying on the bed, and the floor, and the kitchen table. It's only a matter of time before he starts jumping onto the computer table, I guess. Still gotta get him fixed, and get some training.

Guess I'd better get something done before Hubby gets home.

Going to the grocery store and PetSmart.

I've decided to switch the boys to a food with a salmon-based protein. There's always some damn issue with chicken, and the salmon has more Omega 3's that they need.

I found a drop of blood on the floor yesterday, so I've been freaking out, but everyone seems fine. :?

I've discovered a strange cooking phenomenon. If I don't give a crap and just throw stuff in the pot, it turns out great. If I worry about it being perfect and follow the recipe to a T, it turns out crap. :lol:

And the lovely yet so terribly evil Daughter of Basement Cat is heading home as I type. I have never seen anybody as happy to see her Daddy as she was when he walked in last night.

So far a quiet Easter morning. We'll be heading to Frederick to meet my parents in a couple of hours. We've not told Robb yet, otherwise, he'd be asking me ever five minutes, is it time yet? :D

The Big Guy got this horribly obnoxious yet really funny duck that dances to a quacked tune of Peter Cotton Tail for Robb for Easter. Robb loves it.

Py is moving cautiously about the apartment, wondering where she will spring out from.

I found Easter candy on sale, had to buy some of course. Scarfes down half a choc bar, 6 Peeps (yellow) and a big handful of Lifesaver jelly beans - now I feel :vomit:

The budget is Done!! Submitted it to my boss who will probably pick it to pieces. Oh well.

Men, blargh.

Myet has taken to drinking out of my water glass - this is the 3rd glass I've had to dump in 1 hour and get a new glass because she shoved her muzzle in and "sipped" my ice water. :x

I still have 6 more Peeps left........

Myet spent too much online time with Daisy, because that is her favorite trick.

It was 94 degrees here yesterday and is supposed to be about that warm again today. For heaven's sake, it's the beginning of April. In Western Maryland, Mother Nature. Get a grip, it's not supposed to be this hot yet

The heat really bothered poor Sahara in his heavy winter coat yesterday, he spent most of it either under my bed or laying in the shower where it's cool.

Wondering what today will bring work wise.

Still thinking I need to be my own boss and not work exclusively for a service, the billable hours are too irregular.

You're probably right, I was witness to how she already has him totally wrapped around her paws, it was really pathetic, :lol: He turned into total compliant mush the moment she pounded on him when he walked in the door. And I swear I saw her gloating at me as she did so.

Py and Sahara still haven't recovered/forgiven me. I was required to offer slow cooked chicken as an offering for forgiveness last night. I'm not sure it worked, either, judging from the amount of cold cat eye glances I am still receiving from The Imperial One

I tried to take a nap but Gus gave me a painful stompling. My blood sugar was low, so I'll just say that he was being heroic, not a PITA.

So glad tomorrow is Sunday! When I wake up before the "butt-crack of dawn", I'm going to take something that will put me back to sleep. Hopefully, I will sleep until at least 8:00 am. That would be truely awesome!

I would really like to go to Baskett Slough to see the birds tomorrow. But I really want to sleep more. :( That's sad!

Thai has been a love bug today. So unusual for him to come for lovin's. I'm appreciating it.

N completed her first week back at work. It was rough for everyone involved. She cried a lot the first day and lil' B seemed to be sad also. They are going to work on another one next year and paying off their bills so N can stay home with the babies as long as she wants.

Trying to get ready for tomorrow's eval and my 3rd floor neighbors forgot how to turn off a facet and how to pull up the drain stopper. I wondered why Py was using Sahara's box. Shark fins in the bathroom! A flood I haz one.

Mopped up Robb's mess and walked into my bathroom to wash my hands with the nice smelling soap and discover, A second flood, I haz one. At least all my bathrooms are way beyond clean now.

Tomorrow will be fun. Not. Maintenance will be here, tearing out the ceilings and replacing the damaged drywall just about the time our eval is. Maybe they'll take pity on me, yes?

bonus thought. Somebody please have a very stiff drink for me, I think I need one. There will be Tink hugs and kisses as a reward.

Maybe they'll take pity on you, because you have to live below a family of either otters or dipshits. :roll: :shock: I'd have that stiff drink for you, but I have to drive to painting class in less than two hours, and I'm a lightweight where liquor is concerned (that's the only place I'm a lightweight, I'm afraid), but I'm eating extra chocolate for you. :wink:

The other day, when I was working in the front yard, I saw a teenage guy finish eating his hot dog (we are just that far from 7-11) and drop the box it came in onto our grass parking strip. :shock: Maybe he didn't see me because I was either sitting or kneeling, but I fake coughed really loud, and he still didn't even turn around, just kept on walking. I can see throwing your trash on the ground when you think no one is watching, but throwing it in someone's yard when they are in it? :twisted:

I can't believe how tired I get from walking the dog, especially since he spends a lot of time sniffing and peeing on things. When he does walk, he walks fast.

I want a part time job. Not a full time job, and not a whenever job, but 20 hours a week, and good money. I'm not picky, am I? Oh, and no nights or weekends. :lol:

One of my Facebook friends sent me money to buy some doggie shampoo for Tequila. She was going to send me a bottle of it, but her hubby said it would be cheaper to just send me money to buy some, so she did. I guess tomorrow we can go for an outing to Petsmart, and walk around and look at stuff. I am so much more aware now of where I can take a dog and where I can't. :)

Had to go to a used tire shop and get a used set for $200. The tires were the originals that came on the truck when we got it, so no road hazard.

Then, Sunday, Brenna got really sick. She'd had diarrhoea all week. Sat night she started farting REALLY bad. Sunday it was worse. Loud, long, scary. We found a Banfield with a vet, fortunately, so no emergency vet, but it was still over $200. Bacterial stomach infection, FLEA DERMATITIS!!! and bacterial skin infection. We were mortified. three sets of pills and a shot to stop the farts, which were scaring the poor baby out of her wits. She was literally running around the room trying to get away from them. YOU try not laughing at that.

Everything is past due. Trying to catch up. I was two days late on the gas bill. They showed up to cut it off, would NOT take a check, so I had to pay a $60 reconnect fee and a $110 depost in addition to the damn bill.

I thought I had some good karma stored up. I guess not.

Hubby and I are fighting worse than ever. He's literally talking divorce again.

My body is crap. I'm puking, shitting and BLEEDING again. I need a laparoscopy because the endometriosis is flaring up big time. I can't afford the co pay or the time off.

My job still won't hire me on full time. They love me, but not enough to take me off temp status.

Got into a screaming match with the county attorney representing the toll road at the commissioners cour meeting when I tried to get my money back, or at least get them to waive the rest of their LUDICROUS fees for THEIR error.

Oh, and I fucked up the Angels money, and I have to pay them back because I didn't log into paypal for almost a year and didn't realize when I did that what was there wasn't from somene else. So now I'm a pariah in the only place I felt safe.

fuck this. I literally cannot take one more thing.

Another perfume attack for me today. :roll: Today was just asthma, not almost passing out.

Rejected again in the photo contest.

Survival eating, but now I feel a bit pukey. Someday I will understand my stomach, but not today.

Just got back from a very brisk walk! Lovely!!

Heard an owl hooting across the road and tried to find it in the trees. No luck!
We used to have one in our Ponderosa Pine but haven't heard it for a couple of years.

Tomorrow is one day closer to Sunday! Yay! Though I woke up before the alarm went off at 4:15. YUK!

Just tested my BGL.....97. It's been consistantly low (for me) for about a month! Whee! Hubby's is coming down too, though still higher than normal.

Thai just sneezed cat boogers all over Daddy! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hippiechick I am shocked at how your workplace is handling this. There was a teacher at my daughter's school who was sensitive to perfumes and they had signs posted all over that no one wearing anything scented could go into the building she worked in. And that was ten years ago.

Perfume needs to go the way of the dodo. There is no real need for it now that most of us have ready access to bathing facilities.

Soooo relieved that my bf's little one is doing better. She had her first birthday while she was sick, we won't be celebrating until next weekend so that she'll have a shot at enjoying her party.

Ahhh, it's cooled off again. Lovely! I love the inbetween not too hot not too coldness of spring and fall.

I need the housecleaning fairie to stop by, anyone seen her?

No horrible nightmares last night, YAY! :D


Cramps today...I wonder when I'll be through with all of this?

My daughter is moving home from college for the summer!!! :D


It's PAYDAY!!!! Finally!!!! I havent had a penny all week and I need a drink!!! And gas, and food, and everything, LOL!

16-04-2010 16:32:41

Thank you Momo, and I agree. We took a survey and on the "My supervisor cares about my well-being" got a NO, and every no required elaboration, so I wrote "no one enforces the scent free policy"

Bah, nothing will come of it.

Spaghetti noms tonight!

I think there was an owl outside my bedroom this morning. Weird, miniature coyote noises.

I don't think I'm getting mail because of the wasp. I'm trying to be nice and spray when it goes away. I just want it to feel unwelcome, not dead, but it's always there!

spudsmom

16-04-2010 16:55:47

HC...it may very well be because of the wasp. It's possible that your carrier is very allergic. But that person or someone from the PO needs to notify you.

I carry spray for the CBU's, but when it's a private box I leave that to the owner. But I always notify or have a supervisor do it.

The wind gauge on our weather station broke. Hubby is not happy. Needs to be replaced soon.

Spent too much money today. Oil change, gas fill up, tire payment, paid the electric bill, grocery shopping (at 3 stores) Jeez!

More money to the hospital on Tuesday! I need another payday next week. I want to pay the hospital cash from the safe, but DH doesn't want to. I guess that is smarter, at least we will still have cash if anything else comes up....please don't! :evil:

hippiechick

16-04-2010 17:28:00

Oh, and I don't want him to get stung because I'm too much of a soft-hearted chicken to spray the wasp head-on.

Sometimes I just don't get mail, so that might be it.

The wind's kicked up a bit and I would like to close the window, but I cannot bring myself to do so. Sahara's sitting on his custom made perch, on his haunches, resting his front drumsticks on the windowsill watching the outside and purring. I'll go and put on a sweater before depriving the little gimpy guy of something that gives him so much pleasure.


Hell ramped up into mega crisis mode this week. Lots of screaming ranting phone calls. At the house. During the day. When I'm the one here.

Working from home, people, that means from this given hour in the am to that given hour in the pm, I'm juggling a rather large and infinitely needy client base, not sitting here watching trash tv and eating chocolate.

Nor does that mean I can drive down to Hell and scrub your kitchen floor on my hands and knees, even on a good day, I couldn't do that.

And NO you are not coming to live in my house.

Dad came by early this morning, while I was still sleeping, and removed the wasp. Loves my dad.

Isn't it funny how "early" means something different on a weekend? He came by at 8, but on a weekday, I would have been gone for an hour, not still in bed. :lol:

Why, oh, why, did I agree to go to the mingling with the bigwigs luncheon???? 1-I don't mingle, and 2-I hate eating in front of strangers.

I know why I did it, 1-the head of the department is a bit of a dictator, and 2-I'm scared of her.

I'm such a chicken.

No coffee this morning because I broke the carafe for my coffee maker (and almost sliced off the end of my finger in the process).

My finger hurts, duh.

Baked two loaves of whole wheat bread yesterday, they actually turned out light and fluffy and looked pretty!!

Myet keeps getting out of bed to yell at me, I suppose I'd better clean the Puddy Latrine before she decides to crap under the bed!! :shock:

Doing laundry- hopefully getting all the smoke smell out of my clothes. I thought I did this before but I missed some. I've got happy boys though!

Good thing too, it's been raining and raining and everything feels cold and soggy, so it's good for them to have a warm dry spot.

I baked yummy, low sugar and low carb cakes! Hurrah!

I'm negating that by planning on making macaroni and cheese for dinner.

I went shopping for a less tasty/kitty appealing chair, but didn't find anything. I did find new earbuds. Yeah!- now I don't have to choose between pain and popping out (the standard ones were too big).

A lovely 70f today. We took back road treks to and from visiting the MIL. Went through farmland and vineyards.

Came home through Baskett Slough, a wetlands refugee. Lots of Canadian Geese and Mallard ducks and Teal ducks. Saw sex and violence amongst the mallards....lol! (One male was trying to "horn" in on anothers mate)

Saw a pair of Nutria doing whatever Nutria do. :lol:

Had a nice visit with MIL, though she cried when we left and that is always hard.

Went to SIL's and luckily everyone was home, the neices, too. Had a great visit there. I miss going there. With MIL in the retirement home the weekends aren't the same. :cry:

Yesterday kicked my butt, billed out over 10 hours. Exhaustion, I haz it.

Hoping today will be a bit slower I need to get caught up on my own filing.

Projects scattered everywhere in the front of the house. Thanks Py--NOT

Wonder if cat punishment for abandoned them all day Sunday will continue today. Did you ever try and code with one cat in your lap and the other slapping things off your desk? Not a pretty sight.

Very tired and extremely sad today - not much sleep last night, dreamed about the Hospital being leveled by an earthquake and I knew that all my doctors were in the OR's at the time it happened. Actually woke up screaming - I think this was brought on because everyone in my office has been so jumpy about earthquakes (we're still getting little tremors) and they are driving me crazy.

That was a very long thought.

Cold - it's raining and my feet are cold.

I'm so tired my hair hurts.

Last thought off to find some Ambien.

Same for me on the last three, although I do have a nice warm Murphy on my lap right now! I also have a bottle of Ambien in my nightstand drawer. :D

Another pretty spring day today....full of pollen. My eyes were so red when I got done with my route it looked like I had been on a drunken binge.

It's official! Housework is hazardous to one's health. I cleaned out my closet yesterday and my back is so sore. Maybe it was from pulling Thai out of there every 5 minutes. What a "helper"! :lol:

I found a lot of things in the closet that I haven't seen for awhile, like my favorite sandals. SCORE!

I need to tackle the spare bedroom next. That will probably put me in traction.

I need that space so that I can start painting again. I've been feeling an overwhelming desire lately, so maybe that will motivate me to get it shoveled out!

Moved desks today. I got mine raised and I hope it will help my shoulders.

I've also been told that I'm going to be a team leader and essentially train other agents and help them with their stats. I'm not going to feel secure though, because every time I do, I get stabbed in the back.

I ordered stuff for the boys on the 19th. WTH does Fedex say I won't get it until the 26th? I tracked it and it's in Kansas City. It does not take 4 days to get from KC to Tulsa. :evil:

I walked the dog--that was my physical exertion for the day.

Waiting for the sheets and pillowcases to get dry so I can make the bed.

I only have the epilogue to write for A Maid in Bedlam, then it will be done. That's two rough drafts of novels I've ripped through in three months. I can hardly believe it.

I really want a cigarette, but we're very low on them and have no money to buy more.

Worried about life. Wondering if the bank is going to foreclose on our house. Stuff like that.

I want more coffee.

It's really hard to find anything out of the ordinary around here so we are resigning ourselves to doing some of our grocery shopping via internet. Since we were ordering the syrup we went a little nuts getting canned pudding and sherbert fountains and such.

I use the phrase "and such" waaaay too much. It's replacing "etc" which I used to use too much.

Finally went to the doctor about my recurring headaches, light sensitivity, mild nausea and general sense of worry; came home with the migraine medication Midrin. My family had been pushing me to go to the doc's for my headaches for a while but I put it off because they always dissipated but I went today and I'm glad I did. Within an hour of taking one pill it felt like a fog lifting and I could take off my sunglasses; there's still the faintest hint of headache but nothing compared to what it was; such a relief.

The doctor just put "headache" on my medical report because he didn't want to permanently label me with "migraine"; I know from other MCHY migraine sufferers the difficulties that label can cause but I told him he could call it "partridge in a pear tree" if could be fixed!

I came home to a wild-eyed racing around the house Maggie who hasn't sneezed once.....yayyyyy!!

Waiting on decisions, explanations, etc. :(

Got the results from the stone analysis - Ca oxylate. There goes chocolate, cola, teas (I'll cheat occasionally), and coffee (I only let myself have 2 small - old school coffee- cups). Talk about taking the fun out of life!!! Still doesn't make sense why didn't I get one 9 years ago? I'm not doing much different, actually more water than then. :?

Maybe another 2-3 weeks before Livi is kicked out of daycare since I don't work or go to school. As long as I get stuff caught up from our last move I'm ok with it. The pool will open soon.

The wind blew so hard this afternoon that it blew over our very big, heavy ladder. Thankfully not into the window. Thai almost had a nervous breakdown. He's a skitty kitty!

So why is it, I can managed 15 clients, handle some of the touchiest people our company deals with and they love me and yet one client, who gives me just 1.5 hours of time a week at the most is driving me nuts.

I cannot get my head around her very anal processes for those three simple tasks. The process map looks like a web spun by a spider on crack. Bad crack. Created by her former most beloved assistant who lives around the corner from her house. She is miserable at losing this person and is taking it out on me, my boss and I think.

There are at least four people with their fingers in the stuff I am supposed to be doing, entering data before I can get it in, and screwing things up

She wishes to have a 'discussion' with me in less than two hours because apparently whether I entered the data or not, all the mistakes are mine. :roll:

He's got an EGC breakout though. My poor guy. I think it's stress. The wind has been going at 30 MPH for the last few days. It sounds like the house is coming down.

I might have absorbed it from him. He started feeling better just when I started feeling sicky.

Ok, today is totally and completely going to suck. My fingers were so swollen from God knows what now (fibro/arthritis, EDS, take your pick) that the Big Guy had to cut my engagement ring off my totally numb, swollen until it was purple finger this morning.

I'm just heartbroken. I should have taken it to be re-sized years ago.

Not sure if it's even possible to repair it, he had to pry it apart after cutting it to get it off, it's almost straight.

They will be able to repair it, even though it was pried apart.

Wild weather day today. I stayed mostly dry but for the grace of God. Can't think of any other reason why!! :lol:

Had an Undercover cop pull up behind a couple in the parking lot. Apparently these kids were having an argument and the girl tried to exit the car while driving down the Hwy. The UC cop was pretty pissed off and got a Deputy on the scene.

I must have had a overly-sheltered childhood because people like her damage my psyche, and I think, "if I die I won't have to deal with her." And that seems like a good solution.

Except for my boys.

It's almost playtime. Gus is ready now. He's sitting at the ready....starting at me....

I need to muster up the energy for playtime.

We just got back from our walk. There is a storm-a-brewing! The clouds are rather scary looking. I think we got home just in time.

Hubby put up the new mailbox. Looks really nice and has a mail carriers seal of approval! :lol:

Hope the tweaker neighbors box that was on the old post with ours doesn't fall in the ditch. The post is rotten and a breeze would blow it over. It's leaning into the ditch. Not our problem...they need to take care of their own box. It may be a problem...hope not.

I finally got my Chinese sweet and sour spareribs today after craving them for 2 weeks. YUM!!!!!

I swear if my DH doesn't go in to get his hearing tested...I'm going to kill him or myself. Everyday and night it's the same thing. I have to repeat my sentence. before it's even finished. He say's "Huh?? that is his most uttered word. My most uttered phrase is " Talking to the cats!" Kill me now.

(((((Tink))))) Hubby and I both have simple gold wedding rings (in addition to my engagement ring). We didn't know this at the time, but apparently they mixed the sizes up when we bought them, because Hubby's was really tight and mine wasn't, and one day we switched and they fit better, but I've got the fat ring and he's got the thinner one. :roll:

I haven't had much time to come here lately; this week, I don't even have time for Facebook. Got to finish a painting by tomorrow.

Stepdad is cooking something that smells really yummy, but is probably too spicy for me to eat. It's driving me crazy.

On Friday night, Hubby is leaving for Mexico for a week, for Mother's Day and his dad's birthday. He didn't think I could handle the heat there this time of the week; it will be dry, dusty, hot, etc. But I will miss him. :cry:

I really need to work more than 2 or 3 hours a week!

Well, DumbBitch has adopted a puppy. I don't know how much more I can take, especially since she killed her last dog by feeding it McDonald's.

Who made it opposite year and didn't tell me?

Apparently, my statement of "I do not want to take French calls" was interpreted as "I'll be thrilled to take French calls" by the boss. :doubt: And my not volunteering to work for as backup for our sister company was taken as, what? playing hard to get? because I got volunteered. :doubt:

And, I'm going to have to talk to the idiot down the row from me. She's got a bottle of scented lotion on her desk that she regularly uses. What part of "scent-free" is she not getting? Maybe I can just snatch that sucker right off her desk. :wink:

Doctor tomorrow. I gained weight. :( At least I have the day off so I can wallow in self-pity.

We won't know where we are going for another couple of weeks. That doesn't help.

Why do I have two 3 yr olds? One is suppose to be 3.

For some reason I can't get on the internet on my profile on the computer. It won't connect but is connected. I'm wanting one no one else uses. :evil: Maybe in a few years.

Our snowbird neighbors have returned. The guy is nice and all but kind of OCD about his yard. He's out there everyday doing things like shop vacing his deck and using a leaf blower for HOURS.

Oy, the noise.

And they use some serious dryer sheets and it vents to our driveway.. Why does your laundry need to be so perfumed that I can smell it in my house?

I love my little hanging herb garden.

Got an early mother's day present from the Big Guy--HUGE monitor. He set it up this morning, said he couldn't wait until Sunday.

He got me a real desk too, we'll put that together Sunday. Sahara will be pleased, there's not enough room for him to sleep up here under the lamp with all my papers :D

And the Big Guy got a job offer from a dealership, all sorts of bennies, three day weekend once a month, and while the flag rate isn't what he's getting now, the hours will be double, so it's actually a pay raise.

I think he's going to accept, a memo went around the front office where he is now yesterday about not accepting repair work after 4pm. (he wasn't supposed to see it, but he did) The Big Guy works the night shift, so if they don't take in repair work after he gets there, he gets NO hours. Creeps.

Looks like my engagement ring is DOA, :cry:

Momo

Sorry about the ring, maybe they can set the setting in another ring? Or a pendant?

I'm now on Allegra-D, which you'd think would make me hyped up because of the pseudoephedrine (sp?), but no, I'm a zombie. Argh.

We're celebrating Mom's day tomorrow.

Gus gave me an early present. He shredded my stomach and my shoulder. Little booger snot. It hurt like a mofo though. Lately, it feels like my nerves are on the outside of my skin.

Got put on a warning at work. My lost time (unscheduled break time) is supposed to be 97%, but it's 96.79%. :shock: :roll:

Going to St. Johns to see Brighton on Sunday!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I'm taking my Mom of course. But she suggested that my brother come also. Hmmmm! I never heard him being invited.

Happy Mother's Day to me as my first as a Grandmother....my Mom thinks she is gonna run the show. Nicole invited her & I for lunch....she should ask N if it's alright. Grrrrrrrrr!!!

Need to warn N not to mention that I'm coming up the next Sunday to watch Brighton. If she knows and asks to go to, I won't be able to say no. Therefore, she must not find out!

Never rains but it pours. The Big Guy accepted the job in Frederick today and---his former employer in Winchester now wants him back for the locations in Germantown. The really busy location.

He's been trying to go back since he left two years ago and had given up.

Now, decisions decisions. He knows their system, their bennies. He just needs to find out if they'll pay him at his original pay rate.

It's been a massive anxiety day all day today for me, must have had way too much caffeine this morning.

oh and HC, lots of hugs, hon. That place you work at, they are WAY too anal about everything. Who should I send the really well aged pre owned cat litter currently festering in my laundry room to for making those rules and taking them out on you.

Allegro, I know you'll think I'm weird, but here's what I've got.

Black Licorice-helps you breath. Really, it's the anise, so if you have some anise extract, you can make a tea and breathe in the steam. I've just eaten black licorice and felt much better though.

There's also a massage that helps me.

You start at your breastbone near the shoulder a hand on each side, then move towards the middle, then both hands down towards the sternum, then along the ribcage, under the breasts to the sides. Then back the other way.
I couldn't find a video clip, so I drew it on Paint. Sorry it's so crude (I put little boobies on it as a reference point, not to add to the crudeness).



Here's a rather verbose fellow with a somewhat similar massage, but it's not quite the same and I haven't tried it.

Migraines suck big time; the last couple weeks I've been just about useless. The meds relieve the pain for the most part but I can't muster energy to do much of anything, Wednesday was a fairly back-to-normal day but it returned that night thru till midday Friday. Better now; knock wood it stays away.

The only bright side is the 8-10 pounds I've lost the last couple months; I have zero appetite once a headache hits.

Oh MarciaCat! I'm sad that your head hurts! :(

Love the drawing HC and your explaining the boobs. You are wonderful!

Bah! New Post Master wants to change everything. Starting with our 'personal items' on the cases. He also wants to get our office on DPS, which means the mail comes to us sorted in Delivery Point Sequence. That would eliminate my route and the other two routes would absorb it.

I'm hitting the web site for routes available before this happens. I don't want to go back to being a sub, though I would be a good one. I need a salary that I can depend on every pay day. I also need a retirement plan and it doesn't seem to be happening or will happen here.

Brighton and the Mommies are sick! :( So we are re-scheduling that day. I hate to miss it but my Mom doesn't need to be exposed to anything and since this just came on (Brighton started it!) they are really contagious. Nicole is worried about me getting sick and she sounds like hell and says T is even sicker. :cry:

{{{MarciaCat}}} I'm the opposite. Hunger is a migraine trigger for me, so when I get one, I start eating and I don't stop.

I think it must be me. I think I'm intolerant. Otherwise why would I get so irritated at people who interrupt and contradict me. Why do people keep interrupting and contradicting me? There's got to be something wrong with me for people to do that.

I'm not ignorant, so I must be inconsequential.

I'm feeling panicky again today. Like I forgot to pay a bill or something. :?

Hugs to everyone!

Hubby is in Mexico for a week. It's Mother's Day there, and my FIL's birthday too. I didn't go because it is at least 95 degrees there, and dry and dusty (and Hubby thought I'd be miserable under those conditions).

There is no place really suitable for seeing your loved ones off at LAX; you might as well just drop them off at the curbside loading zone. :(

We took my SIL and her husband and son (with Hubby not here, my nephew is our translator! :) ) out to breakfast for Mother's Day. Stepdad also invited another couple to go with us.

The frozen blueberries were a big disappointment. I don't think I bought them that long ago, but there was ice in the bag, and the skins were tough, making them inedible. I want some fruit, but I'm not hungry enough to eat a banana. I guess I'll have to go outside and pick something.

I signed on the internet just now for a particular purpose, but when my browser came up, I couldn't remember what it was.

N. told me that the rough draft of She Moved Through the Fair lacks character development and so she lost interest. I feel really bad about it and I don't know how to fix it, or if I should even bother.

I now have a wireless router, and am going to try to hook it up. :shock: So if you never see me again, you'll know it's because I killed the internet.

She was thrilled to get a Liberty of London sundress (we compromised, she got the strappy dress as long as she got a shrug to go with it.

Robb was really overwhelmed at our walk through yesterday and it carried over into today's party. Although he's pretty good right now, eating pizza and being happy.

Daughter of Basement Cat was PMS'ing the entire stay, she even tried to kill Al at one point. She was not a happy girl. :)

Helene' keeps expanding her body art repertoire. This morning she applied jelly to her feet.

SO looking forward to my vacation next week, first real vacation in recent memory. Will have classes but no work, lots of free time and a planned short trip to see family.

Do have to return to the college bookstore tomorrow. I have the wrong religion book. Good thing the one I have wasn't shrinked wrapped. Of course I didn't dare open it till I got to class and got that "oh crap" moment. Then I let it be

Ok, the Big Guy actually did finally at last accept the job in Frederick (nothing like sitting and wondering did he or didn't he to make life scary) He starts tomorrow on what we have decided is his last job on that side of the automotive counter.

Work yesterday sucked. People who whine because of being charged 2 hours for all their petty little tasks during the week need to grow up.

Today is cautiously better, but I am still holding my breath.

One more program walk through for Robb before we decide which one he will go to.

Our block is primarily made up of retired people. Two of them where having radio wars this afternoon (you know- where they are each trying to drown out the other one's music. Very mature.)

Our next door neighbor is home all day and spends most of his time in his yard. Sorry..I misspoke. In his yard when he isn't IN MY YARD. Or my driveway, or crossing my yard to get to the other neighbor's house. (To complain about his music and whatnot.)

Freaking. It's like living surrounded by middle schoolers some days.

Also I'm going to dig a moat. Or install tripwire. I still jump when I suddenly see him out the window. Stupid nerves.

The house across the street is rented by an ever revolving group of college aged kids. WHO NEVER GIVE US A MOMENT OF TROUBLE. Is it opposite day?

Feeling down. It seems like everything is a fight.

I'm still reveling in being able to breathe. It's actually not great, but before I felt like I was trying to breathe underwater, so this is a big improvement. My back hurts from this weekend's asthma attack.

Gus is yelling at me. WAH

I snapped at DB again. Not too bad, but I really had to bite my tongue.

Gripe, grumble, bitch, and moan

Just got off the phone from our weekly phone call from our son. Some of you know what I mean. I miss him so much. It's always hard, sometimes it's just harder. I love him to pieces and he loves his Momma, too. He does everything to make sure I know that. :cry:

I have been so stressed out lately. Some of it (most of it) is the work environment and some is the ulcer pain and the rest I just don't know why.

I got to work REALLY early this morning to replace my labels on my new case re-configuration. I was still putting up the labels when 'The Sub From Hell' showed up. (Colleen is getting her car fixed from having a Dodge Ram back over the front of it) Had two box holders...and I still beat that slug out and he was just loading up his vehicle when I got back from delivering my route. What a pathetic slug!

Crazy, wet, wild, windy weather today.

We will be in Missouri for our next assigment. Not bad I guess. Now for getting everything together so we can go. Last 2 moves have been goat ropes. I was hoping this one wouldn't be. :?

Menopause sucks. Trying to explain it to hubby sucks.

Really should lay off about his family. It's the classic situation but he is the forgotten child in some ways. :oops: It doesn't help anything.

Ran this morning and did better than I thought.

Worried about KB. Anyone going on holiday soon the the Canary Islands?

I am ridiculously grateful to the show "Parenthood" for giving some people we know and love a bit more info about Asperger's.

It's generally pretty easy for people to grok our daughter's issues because they are so prevelant but our son is so high functioning that it's harder for people to understand when he acts oddly. Or why he can't do well in a regular classroom setting.

Not anyone who has observed him in a regular classroom setting mind you. :lol:

Almost done with school, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

We made it through the storm. Something hit near me though. The street was flooded, and water was running down the street. Suddenly a big-ass wind hit, strong enough to make the water run up the street.

Then the sirens went off. :roll:

The boys did not appreciate my efforts to make them safe. I shut the doors and hunkered down in the hallway. Basically the equivalent of Bert the Turtle in my little house.

So, they got to hang out in their favourite spot--the towel cabinet! Woo hoo! It took their mind off of my moving into the hallway anyway.

People have been so mean lately.

Today is day 2 of the Great Iron Experiment. I'm wheezing a little bit, but I got hit with perfume at work, so I don't know if it's the iron. Maybe this kind will work.

I'm not sure if I care.

I printed out my paperwork for physical therapy. It's for my hip, but I'm wondering if I should bring up my shoulder. It pops like a mutha.

I need to mow the lawn again. :roll:

I have a really upset stomach and I don't like it.

I just painted my toenails for the first time of the summer and did a really bad job.

Have not yet heard about the interview Tipper did. Don't want to put negative energy into it, but I really don't want to have to move...

Our grass needs cut in the worst way and our lawnmower is broken.

Summer seems to finally be here.

2 doses of Iron and I can't take a deep breath.

But I'm not sucking air either.

But it's super windy today, so maybe it is seasonal allergies and I'm just a hypochondriac freak.

Lost finale tomorrow! That means seeing DB tomorrow. So I'm excited and dreading it at the same time.

I love your siggy HC! Hope you are feeling better.

One of my customers gave me some Zebra Grass today!!!! :D :D :D :D
My hubby "helped" by "weeding" my big container of Day Lilies and Zebra Grass. I had been searching for some this past week with no luck. I almost hugged the lady when she asked me if I wanted some, and some Snow in Summer.

He thinks I'm weird that I love decorative grasses so much. I had him take our tiny front yard out because I didn't want the shitty grass and weeds we had. I have raised beds out there now. Was supposed to get soil this week-end but it has poured like a bitch so it's ok that it didn't get done.

I hope the rain lets up so I can go for my walk.

Need to get Spud into the vet next week. He's looking kind of scruffy, coat wise. He's still shiny but it just doesn't look right. He's almost 16. so I worry about him.

I had neighbours like that. Except they were friends. I called them Drunk and Stoned. They were sharp. Kept calling my dad the lawn guy because he mowed my lawn occasionally. Drunk was always following Stoned around like a puppy and crossing in front of my window to do it. I did not care for this, and was happy when they moved.

I woke up feeling better, so I finally mowed my lawn. Now my chest hurts and my voice is gone. :lol:

I got up to get more coffee, and Gus stole my chair. The boys love my chair and literally stalk it. It looks like they're sleeping, but they know the second my ass leaves that chair. :lol: :lol:

I need to write my old friend. She hurt my feelings a couple of years ago and I pretty much cut her off, and have only responded to her on a perfunctory level, but I don't know. I think she's having trouble.

I think I'm going to take Momo's advice and seek out an allergist. I'm tired of people not believing me.

Lost finale tonight!!!!! I'll have to see if I feel up to dealing with DB. I might have to stay home if I don't get to feeling better. It's my show to watch with Dad though :(

My stomach is a bit punky and all it wants is malai kofta from a resturante that is approximately 1800 miles away. *sigh*

Our wee little Vox is 9 monthes old now! And not so wee. He's bigger than Yin and Cali now. And rapidly overtaking Jetta. It'll take quite a bit to beat Yang sizewise though.

Soooooo hot. Doesn't bode well for the rest of the summer.

Homeschool portfolio review Thursday. Might be why my stomach is pissed off. Still need a few things for it but over all it looks decent enough. Next year I need to make sure to generate more paperwork.

We do a lot of reading and dicussing things. Great way for my son (who has a severe nonverbal learning disability) to learn, but a bit hard to put into a folder.

The other day I realised that the plot I've been trying to use for my latest project doesn't work. That's 200 pages of manuscript down the drain. I hope I can salvage some when I come up with a new plot.

I hate the weather. It's been grey and rainy for days. Before that it was windy. Not good for my mood, or my head.

I've been sleeping a lot, though. About time.

Dacs has gotten braver of a sudden. She's actually wandering around the house instead of staying in the linen closet all the time. The other cats still pick on her, but maybe they'll work it out.

Virginia DMV sucks rocks. They've 'suspended' my driving privileges last month. I don't even live there anymore and haven't had a VA drivers license in ages. But I iz suspended :roll: and they want $85 to grant me privileges again even though we moved here in 2008.

Wow, he's 80. I'm having a really hard time wrapping my head around that, as active as they are, you'd think they were much younger.

Feeling annoying at my keyboard, I spent some bucks to get those replacement stickers that are never supposed to wear off, they've been on maybe three weeks tops. I noticed two of them are almost blank just a bit ago.

As much as I want to run the AC, since the Big Guy made a point of sitting in the dark last night because it was on :roll: to save electricity, then he's going to find out just how hot this apartment can get. The battle of the summer thermostat has now begun

The man runs the baseboard heat at broil in the winter, but refuses to let the AC be turned on until the middle of July and it's set at 85, because it's too expensive. I still don't understand this--the baseboard is 3x as expensive to run.

I am having severe baby hunger. Most women my age are looking at having grandchildren, and I want to have a baby. I must be out of my mind.

Tipper's at the high school graduation and I'm really bored.

Did some work this morning. Got the chapter into better shape; I really wasn't satisfied with it yesterday.

Wonder what's for lunch?

Yay for Tink winning the AC battle!

It's all about food here. I eat something with iron, then eat something with Vitamin C to absorb the iron. :roll:

All the acid from the citrus will make me breakout, give me a UTI, or both. :roll:

I've just realized how much the physical therapy is going to cost, and my pain suddenly became much more tolerable. :shock: :wink:

I realized that I must have more time for myself. I have none! It's work and home for more work.

My youngest sister needs a good box to the ears. I could go on and on about the miserable marriage she's in, how she finally wised up and left but went straight into another so-called relationship. :evil: :roll: :evil: :roll:. Stupid. And she had the audacity to wonder why I asked her to leave my home when I found out about it.

I'm all for being supportive, but I won't be lied to and having my phone tied up while I'm waiting to hear from a client about an ad I produced because she's hiding in the closet talking to this clown (who is also married, but actually told me he wasn't). I politely tell him to not call my home. He claimed he didn't, I tell him I have caller i.d. I also remind him that he's married. He said he wasn't. :roll: WTF? Sis is on her own. I shelled out money for a divorce 2 years ago only to find that she was seeing her soon to be ex behind my back, and decide she should try to work it out. He'll change, he'll get a job, they'll move out of his parents basement. ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fuck you, Dana. Clean up your own mess! This cash cow is dry. I have to be honest, I really can't believe this stupid bitch came from the same womb. My other sisters are very strong woman. Well, Jeannie's a head case, but she stands up for herself.

Aw, enough. I don't have anymore thoughts other than just being f**king tired.

It's just too easy to stay up too late. :shock:

Tequila got through the neutering just fine. We have started taking him for walks (two weeks without walkies? He wouldn't go for that!), avoiding other dogs, and wearing that cone of shame. Hubby and I had a nice walk with him this evening. We even stopped for ice cream.

Facebook takes up so much of my time.

I need to find some more work for this summer.

Have I already mentioned one of my paintings got a 2nd place ribbon in a show?

Congratulations on your ribbon, BPM!

Have an excellent time with Al, Lisa and Robb. It had been 13 years since Al and Lisa had seen each other. Now, we just need to wait until David gets home from Korea and I'll have all three of them in the same room for the first time since 1998.

Robb enjoyed himself too, he's been out every day for the past three.

Lisa's crashed, napping in the recliner and nestled in her arms, Sahara, purring so loud I can hear him over here.

Looking forward to a quiet day off tomorrow

Spending the week-end by myself. Hubby is off visiting his out-of-town bros again. Do not feel sorry for me....I'm liking the solitude.

I went for a walk earlier. Then BBQ'd a country style pork rib. Planted my tray of herbs while Q'ing. It was really warm out though overcast. No rain predicted for today. It is now POURING!!!!!!! I may need to build an Ark! :shock:

Watching a Dirty Jobs DVD. Took a little break to feed the guys their wet food. Tonight was Spud's PetroMalt in his food so I have to keep a close eye who is in who's dish. It would benefit Thai also, but I add water to Spud's fudz.

So far the change in diet has decreased the puking problem that Spud had. YAY!!!

I love Mike Rowe! His voice and his smile are so sexy...and he's funny. Back to Dirty Jobs. :D

GAH! I did something yesterday that caused me to itch all night. It felt like I was being bitten all night. Thankfully, it stopped at about 6:30am, and I got to go back to sleep for a bit.

Thank goodness I'm off for the holiday. I'd be pretty grumpy if I had to go to work.

We also got hit with a big damn storm that kept knocking out the electricity. I didn't get my computer shut off before it went out, and had to worry that the storm killed it all night. :roll:

I guess the boys didn't care for the storm. They woke me up a couple of times, and are totally zonked out now.

Band of Brothers marathon. Seeing what they went through keeps me from feeling sorry for myself.

I'm pretty sure it's too late for me to have one, and it probably wouldn't be a good idea because of the blood pressure med and the thyroid one I have to take.

Today, I got a plastic bag from the Post Office that said we appologize for the contents of this bag being damaged. Inside was just the empty envelope, minus the graduation announcement/invitation to Paula's middle daughter's high school graduation. :cry: The envelope looked like it hadn't been sealed.

The lady whose yard I work on is going on a trip to Europe with her daughter and grandson soon. I will still be able to go a couple of times a week to make sure nothing dies from lack of water, and make sure the lawn doesn't get overrun by dandelions and other weeds.

I need a few more clients. I would be happy to go and water people's yards while they are on vacation.

We may be getting another dog.

I have felt sad today. I'll be okay, but it was a sad day.

Email yesterday, paychecks are late AGAIN, maybe by tomorrow. Hello people, they were already 2 days late when you emailed us yesterday. Some of us have rent to pay. Groceries to buy, High level Cat lifestyles to maintain.

It's really hard to be motivated when you're not sure if your paycheck will be in the bank when they say it is.

Taking baby steps to pulling away from the service and officially going out on my own (also putting down jelly bean trail to coax Auntie JL to toss in with me)

At least one client is not only intending to stay with me, but encouraging me to go and offering to help bring in business.

Have now finished one full week at the gym.

Was told that if I have to drop to part time to stay in school, I will never get full time again, company is trying to phase that out. YET keep productivity standards high..astards

Homework, homework and more homework. At least my grade so far are nice and solid.

The other day, we went into the liquor store in search of single malt whisky and the only brand they had was from the only distillery on Skye. I wonder if the gods are telling me to emigrate?

The CEO and the COO are not around or available on any communications channel either, color me surprised.

And supposedly, I was getting a raise this week. NOT. I'd settle for the paycheck in hand, thank you very much

I'm tempted to walk away from the computer, however, two of my clients plan to go with me wherever I am so, I will at least keep taking care of them.

Ugh, I can relate Tink, at the job I was working at when I had my daughter they would tell us on payday that they couldn't pay us that day but would "soon" then the church secretary (it was a church run school) would lecture us on the virtues of budgeting (our crummy just barely above minimum wage pay) if we would dare gripe about piddling things like "rent being due" and whatnot. We were such a bunch of whiners!

She had the gall to tell us that sometimes she would forget to cash her paycheck for weeks! (She was living on what her husband had left her and her secretary pay was apparently pin money. Needless to say most of us were not working there for giggles.)

Acetone in the air vents AGAIN. About 1 hour after a perfume attack. After the lovely tar smell from them trying to repair a sinkhole that opened on the highway near me yesterday.

Wheee! I wasn't planning on breathing today.

My wonderful dad just came over to kill a carpenter bee that was setting up residence in the ceiling of my porch. I told it to go away, but it didn't listen. :( Thank goodness for Dad though, because by the time I feel well enough to deal with it, it would have been settled in.

I am going to be doing homework constantly for the next five days. I can make I can make it I can make it....

I really am ready to make the split with Elizabeth, but feel stuck and prevented because I feel I need to be with the kids. This marriage has been dead for a while, but nobody seems willing to bury the corpse. Even me.

Because it will mean me living with my mother. A broke 44 year old man living with his mom. Yeah, chicks dig that.

I know a person I really like, and I know the feeling is mutual, but she lives a continent away. So that's not happening, at least not now.

Had intended to browse the net till I felt sleepy but now I'm all wide awake after doing all the techy stuff with the techy.

Got to grips with making curls with straighteners today, just need to keep the curls in!

Friday already wow that week went fast!

I plan on spending that day cleaning the kitchen from top to bottom. It REALLY needs it! :vomit:

I forgot I agreed to go to a naughty lady party on Sat. *sigh* It's at C's daughters. C & I will be the oldest ones there. I know they are going to do their best to embarrass us, that may backfire! :lol:

I was up a lot during the night, but managed to sleep until 7:30. I feel pretty good. Maybe I'll even get some work done today.

Found another old friend--or work associate--and her daughter on Facebook. The daughter looks completely different.

Feeling the urge to post She Moved Through the Fair on Authonomy. But it's only a rough draft, and maybe I shouldn't be hasty. And there's sex in it, so I don't know how I feel about putting that on the web. Of course, if it ever gets published, it'll be there for all the world to see...

I think I will shave my legs today.

Been on the road since 1pm and just now got home.

But...Robb now has his MD state id, and I've driven to Winchester and back to pick up a computer Al got for his dad.

Like we need more parts in this house. :roll:

Somebody had better be thinking of taking me to dinner when he gets off work, that's all I'm sayin.

Feeling a little low. I think I may go to bed soon.

Why does my browser keep opening up two windows?

Stayed up late watching The Next Karate Kid. It's hard to sleep after that much cheese! :lol:

Some asshead knocked on my door after 10pm last night. Is it acceptable anywhere to knock on a stranger's door that late? I didn't answer, but he scared the crap out of the boys. He was probably a friend of the moronic neighbour. :roll:

I wish Kingston would come home so my daughter could get her life back.

I need to pay attention to what I put in my mouth; stress eating has put

Supposed to be nasty and rainy here for the next couple of days.

Rye bread is evil - sticky, sticky evilness incarnate.

My back hurts, it's been hurting since last weekend and I don't know why.

Need sleep.

Don't know why hubs and I are having communication issues. Told him a gazillion times yesterday why if we leave here on the 24 Aug we can only stay 3-4 days with friends in France. The 24th is MUCH later than I wanted to stay, I was thinking 15th or so.

No way we are doing his sides holiday schedule this Fall. 1- we don't have the funds 2- stress. We may not even get it off. He will be retiring soon we have to get ready, jet setting isn't part of getting ready.

Facebook is taking over my life. :shock:

Staying up late due to upset tummy. That hasn't happened lately. I'm wondering if I could be lactose intolerant with milk even though I can eat yogurt, ice cream, cheese, etc. with no problems.

Had the pleasure of going to the DMV today. :roll: Realized last night that my tags were expiring tomorrow. Have a friend that works there, but didn't manage to get my # called by her. Ya know how they seem so mean at the DMV, well even my friend Dottie looked mean when she was dealing with customers...and she's like the unmeanest person that I know. Weird!

Got my LED caution light yesterday. It's sooooo cool, it has 100 different light patterns! Will save the wear and tear on my E flashers, it's damn expensive to replace the flasher unit! My mechanic is on vacation, but when he gets back he will wire it in directly for me.

I moved the water about that far from the food dish, now there is still food in the water dish and there is a trail of food between the two dishes. Yang is determined.

Listening to Pandora (pandora.com) Very cool. Personalized radio using the Music genome project.

Two more days until my son's birthday BBQ. The yard looks awesome but the house needs some work.

Daughter of Basement Cat will be picked up tomorrow evening. I feel bad for her, she is just miserable without Al and I wish she liked me. I would happily love and cuddle her if she didn't try and rip out my throat every time I went near her. My other grandcat adores me :cry:

Came home from taking the Big Guy out for breakfast to find my computer on and my work email up. Both monitors had emails open all over them and in my chair, bathing way too casually. You guessed it, Py the Imperial.

Wonder which one of my clients he flamed mailed?

He's getting way too computer savvy for me to handle, :lol:

Sahara is still unhappy about his shots, but at least tonight he managed a small purr for his daddy.

Py has now conquered my desk and appointed Sahara as his second in command for desk domination. Working tomorrow should be interesting to say the least as they are currently acting like furry keyboard frames.

Up at 4:30 again this morning, but as I went to bed at 9:30 that still makes for 7 hours.

Elvira has developed a really annoying habit of digging in my trash can every morning at about 4:30. This is another reason I get up so early. I have no idea what she finds so fascinating in there.

Hungry. Wonder what I will eat?

The weather looks kind of nasty--cloudy and windy.

I wish Tipper were awake. I'm lonely!

I loke MickeyD's much more when I have it only once in a couple of months or so.

The country side is so lush and green this year. Not common this far into June.

WE are having the back yard fenced over like a roof to keep the cats in. Since Halo and Morris disappeared back in early May B has been really worried about the other kittys so it's Jail time.

Took Hubby to Hotel Oregon for breakfast yesterday. It's such a cool place. Too cold to dine on the roof top though.

Then we went to see Iron Man 2. RD Jr. is sooooooo HOT!!

Finally....the green beans have EXPLODED from the garden soil. Was able to thin the radishes, too. No sign of the carrots. My herbs are looking ....ok, nt great. Hubby transplanted some tomatoes...they are so stunted from our VERY wet spring. I'll be surprised if we get any tomatoes.

Going to spend the night with Brighton while his mommies go out, two weeks from last Saturday.

Hubby's BD is next Saturday and our 6 month anv. of NOT SMOKING!!!! YAY!

Very strange dream I had Sunday night; I've thought about it for a day but it's still going through my head.....here it is:

My sister and brother-in-law come riding up to the front door on horses and say they were on their way to play polo but came to see me first to exercise the horses. I ask why they came all the way up here when no one would let me have a horse up here and everyone laughed at me when I wanted to keep one in the canyon.

Then I'm walking down the hill with them for a bit, feeding the horses carrots then I turn around to go home and come across two kittens, one calico and the other dark grey. I pick them up to take them home; as I near the house a large bird (a hawk, I think) swoops down and the grey kitten disappears. I rush into the house and hand my Mom the calico kitten and say "This is Guinevere" and rush out to search for the other kitten.

I go searching up the hill looking for the grey kitten and finally find it, pick it up and start to hurry home only to have it change into a giant kitten-sized bug! :shock: :shock: It drops from my hands and I think "OMG, it's a shape-shifting cat!" I put it in a box and rush home; once I'm in the house it changes back to a kitten. I tell my Mom I think it's a boy and I name him Nicholas. Then I wonder how I'll be able to take them to the vet for check-ups if one of them keeps changing into a bug! :lol:

That's where it ends...very strange!

hippiechick

22-06-2010 18:23:06

We all know what the carrots mean. :wink:

I've duct-taped my sliding doors. So far, no bugs.

Gibson watched me do it and saw how hard I worked, so why is he trying to tear it up? :evil:

After the last invasion I had a major screaming-sobbing meltdown when I saw a spider Sunday night. I think my nerves were gone. I wish I didn't have this phobia (or that others understood it instead of being assholes)

Despite usually feeling much better about myself, I still have off days.

Today is one of those days.

I feel fat, ugly, nasty, horrid, hideous, and unattractive.

Crap.

I know, I should just man up and quite whining. Sorry.

Momo

24-06-2010 19:49:24

I don't think you should man up and quit whining, I think you should realize that the way you feel about yourself is a feeling not a fact. You may feel like those things are true but that does not make them true. Does that make sense? You've got a screwed up self image. Like an anorexic person who sees themselves as fat no matter how skinny they get you are seeing yourself in a warped way. I'm not saying this is your fault, I'm just saying you can't trust your own perseptions of yourself, espessially when you are depressed. So look to the people who love you for a more accurate view.

hippiechick

24-06-2010 21:09:12

{{{Case}}} Better to have the occasional "off" day, than the occasional "on" day. And you are a man, so no need to "man up." You're allowed to have feelings and you're allowed to express them. But you're none of those insults you used to describe yourself. I think you know that since you recognize that you're feeling that way because of the "off" day, and I'm glad of that.

I apparently have selective memory because I always forget how mean people are when they're forced to recognize that they're abusing a human being.

Dad freaked me out, but he assured me he's okay.

Gus and Gibson had a big fight today. Snorting was involved. :shock:

24-06-2010 22:58:50

Case - sorry you are having a day like that - I guess we all have them. I know I do. But what helps me - just as Momo said.... I look to, & rely on those who love me, who think I am pretty, special, worth it, those who love me. Sometimes it is hard to trust the positives others see, but sometimes their love - and loving them requires blind faith and acceptance.


You are none of what you described yourself as - you are a good man, trust those who love you and tell you how wonderful you are.

Went to in-laws for hubby's birthday. He's staying another night because they all started drinking Bloody Marys this morning.

I had a good time, but the thought of spending most of the day listening to one BIL enjoying the sound of his voice was not the least bit appealing to me.

This same BIL was trying to lay a guilt trip on me to be friends with his girlfriend again. Fat chance! That crazy bitch burned her bridge on New Years Eve. I was the only one that would have anything to do with her at that point. Not anymore. It's a united front against that crazy drunk.

My MIL called the BIL and left a voice mail on Crazy Bitches phone. She didn't hit the end button soon enough and CB heard Ma call her a bitch. So she called and asked to talk to my hubby and bitched him out and he had nothing to do with it!

I loved spending the time with my neices. The youngest read me to sleep with a Hannah Montana book last night. :lol: :lol:

He is currently sitting in my good desk chair, bathing. I am sitting on Robb's old desk chair, with a pillow cuz it's busted and won't get up high enough for me to see over my keyboard.

Yeah, I'm seriously cat whipped.

And where has Sahara been in all of this? Sleeping, peacefully in the shower, the coolest part of the house.

Hubby's on Facebook now. He probably won't spend much time there--too busy with work, but still. :)

Tequila and I had a nice walk. When we were going through an office park where the buildings were made to look like old houses, we found a kitty who seems to be living in the bushes. He barked at her and she (don't really know if it's a boy or girl kitty) meowed a sad "leave me alone" meow. There is another place, a couple of blocks from there, where a street dead-ends at the freeway and we have seen dishes with catfood and water.

If there is a chicken bone on the ground when we're out walking, that dog will find it!

I really should try to go to bed at a decent hour.

I love peanut butter!

Overcast and cool today, but hot weather is coming.

Every day she comes in and at the top of her lungs and to no one in particular, announces some sort of drama in her life. And I think, that is so not that crazy and so not my business. God, lady, just get laid or something. You need a boyfriend, or a girlfriend or a freaking inanimate object.

We walked, we rocked, we rolled on the ball, had a bottle, walked some more, walked some more, walked some more, then rocked some more. Poor girls...he runs them through that every night.

@spudsmom--yeah, I did something right with that kid, that's for sure. Bless his heart. I think he's feeling some separate pangs already, even though he's excited to move to Florida. And yes indeed, much more Grammy time is necessary.

Gearing up to start taking on private clients and walking away from the service. Probably by the end of this month.

Providing the service stays afloat that long, the other member of the tech team and I believe they probably are very close to being insolvent.

What really annoys me, is I know MY clients have paid them. They've used that cash to pay themselves and the admin techs, not me.

I still have no paycheck--so how would taking time to get new business for myself be any different than now. Oh yeah, I wouldn't have to be annoyed at having to fulfill contracts that I'm not being paid for.

I forgot to put a nicotine patch on until almost 1:30 today. It didn't bother me until then. So I decided to skip to stage 3 and see how it goes. All I know so far is that the patch is making my skin itch!

Been feeling fat and depressed, but I'm some better today.

I need something interesting to do, though. I really miss writing. I wish I could get back in touch with it, but I'm afraid I may have blown a circuit with the heavy writing schedule of March-May.

Or not. I always slow down a lot during the summer.

Coffee...

Been an interesting day for sure. Picked up at least two more clients, got a lead on somebody looking to do a partnership and a possible 4 hour a day gig that I'll know more about next week.

The additional bad news about the Big Guy's car turned out to be not so bad, it's still going to cost, but nothing like it could have.

Now to get it repaired so I can get my car back.

One more shop move to go, at least we got ahold of the guy with the wrecker tonight.

I need a vacation I think I'm beat :)

If I cut my hair to chin-length, I can donate almost 8 inches. What I'll have to do though, is cut it myself and then go to the salon and let them fix it. Last time, she just whacked it off, but if she had done it the way I wanted, there probably could have been another inch.

My friend from work e-mailed me that they've fired 3 people. I hope my desk isn't cleared. :shock: Panic Attack!

It rained and stormed all night. A couple of thunder claps made me jump out of my skin. UGH. More to come. There are flood warnings.

I'm hungry, but I just took my allergy pill and I can't eat for an hour. :( My tummy says grrruuuwrrrooooo.

Still no clue for Mom's B-day pressie.

We are in limbo until hubs gets a clearance that may be sitting on a desk stateside. :roll: Liv and I have to be out of here by 31 Aug or pay a daily fine. Tired. Stressed and it's not helping anything.

Too many sad thoughts and I want them to stop.

I'm trying a multi-vitamin with iron. Breathing problems and fatigue have begun, but I'm trying to be optimistic and blame allergies.

I didn't cut my hair. Every time I thought about leaving the house, it started to downpour. :roll: I still have layers too, so only the longest part would be 8 inches. I just don't know.

My boys were droopy last night, so I gave them some nip. Gibby is apparently sleeping it off because he's zonked out. :lol:

Mini highschool reunion to take place here in about an hour. It's been 33 years since some of us have seen each other.

Let's home this track team reunion does not result in the old guys trying to see if they can still run or beat each other around the parking lot. Trust me. They can't. Convincing them the team's former statistician knows best might take some doing.

It's way too hot anyway and I do not have near enough Ben Gay and ice packs in the house, although I do have the ER on speed dial just in case.

My house is so clean my Gram, rest her sweet soul would approve. Although she might have an issue with the cat currently sleeping on my kitchen counter.

Trying to decide if it's worth the attempt to coax his Imperialness off the counter or just act as if he's not there, kind of like he's been doing to me all day when I've tried to get him to sleep elsewhere. Thank goodness Sahara is sleeping in MY shower and not the front bathroom shower today.

Wow! I've been on a book reading frenzy for the last couple of weeks. I've read almost 2 books since I got home from work yesterday.

I have to go to Thriftbooks to find some more books. Wish I'd ordered some earlier for the rest of the week.

I seem to read more when the weathers hot. It's nice to stay in where it's cool and read...or if I wake up in the night because it's too hot. Nice to get up and sit in frontof the A/C with a book.

I'm shaking off my cold, but hubby is getting it. I'm glad (but sad) that we decided to cancel our day with the girls and Brighton yesterday. The boy doesn't need a summer cold.

We're being bad tonight. I'm making cheese burgers. Would be nice to grill them, but the grill needs to be cleaned. That's ok it's too damn hot outside anyway.

Tha mail has been a total bitch ALL week. Summer is usually when it's lighter. This has been the heaviest flow of mail in July that I can remember in 15 years.

I've also had to run errands after work everyday and haven't had time for a nap.

I had to get my oil changed today. They discovered a little leak in a small hose to the water pump. Tried to send me to their guy, but I have my own mechanic and get a better deal there than anywhere else.

So tomorrow I have to take my car to get that taken care of. No nap again. :(

Saturday I have to take it in to Les Schwab because I have a slow leaking tire. Won't cost anything to fix it...except for my time. Can't catch a break this week. Hope next week is way less hectic.

Mum goes to hospital tomorrow for all important mammogram then on Monday back to hospital for Oncology appt, keeping fingers crossed for good outcomes.

Going away 27th July to 9th Aug seeing Dad, family, friends in Brighton, then over to Plymouth to see best m8, then over to Banbury to meet new friends who I've known for years but never met yet. Really looking forward to it all. The boys will obviously not be happy that I'm away for 2wks. My brother & Mum will be caring for them.

Frontlined the boys today, Billy peed a river out of the cardboard box he was hiding in, swore at me and broke through the barricades to get under the wardrobe, no barricade is secure with Billy around! :roll: Merlin was an Angel compared.

Later I had someone call round and there was a huge bang upstairs. When they had gone I went to investigate and Billy had knocked down another barricade (a brand new pack of inkjet paper in a carrier bag) to get under a trolley to hide. He's actually still under there, he's been there about 2hrs and counting so far.

We are spending Sat. night at the beach. We decided not to spend Sunday night also.

It's going to be super hot this week end. I don't want to leave the cats home for two days alone. Even with the a/c on, it get's pretty warm in here in the early evening. We usually run three fans at night. We'll just have to leave the a/c on overnight for them.

If I knew I would get paid overtime that would be one thing, but the chance that someone will make me sick with their stink is pretty high, so I'll just work hard and get an asthma attack (and carpal tunnel) for my trouble.

Kind of like the one I've had since fucking yesterday.

Fuck it.

It's going to be in the 90's this week-end. Yuck!

As soon as I get done with my route tomorrow, we are heading to the beach!
Yay! It will be much cooler there!!

We have an awesome spa room, with fireplace, and 42" tv. It costs less than a room at the casino and it's on the beach. Hubby won't have to hang me out the window by my feet to get an "ocean view". :lol:

We've been going to this little motel for YEARS. We call it our hidden gem, it's at the end of a dead end street and we always have a good time there.

We're going to see Blue Oyster Cult and Foghat at Chinook Winds casino. Yes, we are old farts! :lol:

I really should get my sheets out of the dryer so the cats can help me put them on the bed. :lol:

I think the girls practiced catch and release with a mouse in the house; I think I saw one in the kitchen a couple nights ago. :shock: :roll: Probably happened when Murph clawed the screen door open last week. GRRHHH!!

Fabulous day :D Billy & Merlin have a new cat sitter, and I have a reciprocal arrangement with my friend to look after her cat Gizmo who is a feral lady cat, bet Billy would love to meet her :lol:

Have lovely time round my friend's house :D

Too much to do before I go away.

3 lots of washing done yesterday, hoovering in progress today, went to Dentist yesterday too

Met my sister and her bf and their new cat Rocky yesterday, he's a very masculine looking cat, very playful too, gave him his gifts.

I think I need some anxiety meds. For the past month or so, I feel like I'm on the edge of a full on panic attack. I started feeling better, then saw a lump on Gus' gums and we're off to the races again.

I'm hoping I can just go through my regular doc. I tried seeing a therapist, and I knew more psychology than she did.

I don't think it's a good thing when you have to remind yourself to breathe.

Laundry day! So the boys are happy.

Back to cold cheese sandwiches. I apparently need things to be bland for a while. :vomit:

Momo

26-07-2010 10:35:29

I was on anti anxiety meds for a while. They did help and then once I was better at managing my anxiety I was able to go off of them. But they were definately instrumental in getting to that point.

Be careful though they are sleeeepy making.

Then again I'm a lightweight when it comes to..everything pretty much. :roll:

THE CICADAS ARE SOOO LOUD.

Vox is playing king of the mountain on our new wardrobe. It's a collapsable one from rubbermaid, I fear it's days are numbered with the cats climbing on it constantly. Good thing I got it at a yard sale.

spudsmom

26-07-2010 10:57:37

I take my anti-anxiety meds at night. Without them, there is no sleeping for me. Can't shut the anxiety "voices" up. :lol:

I think my stomach meds are interfering with my anti-depressants. My agoraphobia is taking hold of me again. Which then causes my mother to throw a guilt trip on me. That makes me even more anxious. Why can't she understand that it has nothing to do with her.

I'm so glad that my husband understands and is there to support me. That is priceless.

My ulcers are killing me again. I spent all week end throwing up and in pain. I swear that I'm not going in like a mild sheep to the gastro doc next month. I'm going to demand that he try something else and to see me sooner than every two months. I can't go on like this. When he says some of it is caused by stress....well then let's do something about that. I wish he could spend a day like I do just once.

I called in sick today because I was sick all night. It's going to be hotter than hell again today anyway.

Case

26-07-2010 11:15:44

I had a friend at the very end of my road trip that put my son and I up for the last night of that trip.

Her son and my son are friends. Her daughter and my daughter are also friends. Her daughter and my daughter want to get together again. This is about a three hour drive away, I'm willing to do it.

This friend basically told me "oh, I'm sorry, the rest of the summer is completely booked." Excuse me? EVERY single day, all day? Neither of us is employed, so that's a HUGE amount of possible days. I'm willing to make it a day trip too, so she doesn't have to put us up for the night.

I am convinced there is something else going on here. This is the second time this has happened too. She did this for MONTHS after I visited Marnie and then stayed at her and her husband's house after hanging with Marnie.

What is it that I do that causes me to drive friends away when they actually meet me in person? Is there some annoying habit I have? I honestly truly want someone to give me an honest answer. I want to change, to improve. Tipper? Grim? You saw me on the same trip? Do I get annoying? Anyone else here who has met me? Please, what is it that I do?

Case

26-07-2010 13:22:49

I know, I am at times a little paranoid.

I accept that, and try to always take that into account.

But "we are booked for the rest of the entire summer" just sounds WAY too much like an excuse of some sort.

I don't buy it.

Now, where the "I'm being too paranoid" part kicks in is the notion that it could be something on her end causing her to offer up the lame excuse.

H Palmer

26-07-2010 16:03:07

Sending really big hugs out to Taz, HP, and Case. I don't know what to say about your friend, Case, except I'm certain that the problem is with her and not with you. You'd think she'd at least want to get together so the kids could hang out.

It's late. I should at least try to sleep.

I had a busy day. I'm not used to being busy. Tomorrow will be kind of busy, and Wednesday will be very busy. At that rate, I should be ready to spend Friday lying around doing nothing.

My dog got a bath Saturday and a flea treatment this morning.

I feel like eating something very decadent, but nothing that we've got in the house will really do, so maybe I won't have a snack.

I don't know what to tell you Case though I know that school is sneaking up on us hella fast but here it starts like the third week of August or some damned thing. It's pathetic. We really are pretty booked for the rest of the summer trying to fit in everything we thought we had plenty of time for. Maybe your friend is just overwhelmed and doesn't want to commit to anything else?

{{{Case}}} I doubt it has anything to do with you.

{{{7:06}}} and {{{grim}}}

I'm really tired. And they're making us do more overtime next week.

I know I shouldn't complain and be grateful to be employed, which I am, but I'm tired, and it's a whole lotta negativity coming down on me.

More to come too, since the bosses have taken away our time to complete our cases (which includes issuing the promised credits to customers). :lol: There's a certain feeling of freedom in realizing the futility of it all.

Oh, and after reading a bit, I've realized that I've been having panic attacks. Wheeeee!

The dust is flying around here. The field across from us is being threshed and baled. Hopefully when this is over I will be able to breath through my nose again.

Heading to the in-laws tomorrow after work. Should be interesting. My stomach will not let me drink alcohol. It will be annoying to be around others who are hammered.

Should be cooler tomorrow. I'm ready for it.

Hubby is washing my car! :shock: All the better for the dust to stick to it.

Thai has been sleeping during the day. Then he yodels and tears through the house in the night. I guess he feels crazy when it's cooler. :lol:

31-07-2010 22:20:15

We are stuck in limbo. Liv and I need to be out of here by the end of the month. Hubs is still waiting on a clearance that no one knows where the paperwork is now.

ILs want us to jet set when we shouldn't nor can we afford it without hurting our future. There is even more on this one!

Hubs isn't seeing the big picture regarding us getting out of here. He wants us to go together, it would be nicer but I don't want to pay close to ~$200 per person for a month over the visa. There is nothing for Liv here and she needs to be in school.

I see problems that have grown too big. :cry:

After dinner I was outside with the kitties doing some gardening when the little possum who's been hanging around popped out of the shrubbery then just shuffled right past Abby & Maggie! :shock: :lol: Maggie turned and followed him right on his tail, literally...her nose right on his tail, I couldn't believe it!! He ignored her and went next door so she lost interest.

10-15 minutes later I happen to look up from the plant I'm re-potting to see that silly possum headed right toward me, about three feet away :shock: :shock: I jumped back and told him to move along then he turned and dashed off back into the shrubbery!! Silly critter!

No other thoughts right now....

hippiechick

01-08-2010 09:53:23

Eeek! I'm glad you survived the possum encounter, MC! Scary little beasties!


Since I've come out as a panicker, I can say that bill paying is one of the things sometimes sets me off. I built up my courage to make a payment on my car insurance last night, and had a freak out when I pulled it up. Nothing was due this month! WTF?

I'm not complaining, but WTF?

There was a drop of blood on the side of the litter box. WTF is up with that? No one would fess up either. Everything else was fine, there was just the one drop of blood.

The boys got into a big fight the other day, and Gus got a bloody ear, so maybe the scab fell off while he was conducting business. I hope that's all it is. I'll be on high alert for a while though.

I can't stop thinking about love. Usually that's not a bad thing.. but there's currently no one in my life, and since I'm unemployed, I can't afford to go anywhere to meet anyone.. and yet ALL I want lately is a loving, faithful, trustworthy man and for him to give me babies.

Yeah, that's another part of the "I can't stop thinking about love" crap. I want babies. I want them now. My sister is having her third in about 4-5 weeks. One of my best friends has two beautiful amazing wonderful little girls who basically own my heart outright... I want a little one of my own.. to love.. to protect.. to nurture.. to teach.

My biological clock refuses to shut the fuck up, so I've resorted to trying to drown out the "I want love" saga with some action films. Lots of blood. Lots of guns. Maybe if I make myself want to puke it'll mask the intense craving for love and marriage and children.

...even if for only a minute.

I could tell you stories all day that might change your mind or at least help the moment pass. Like the $389 plumbing bill I paid to get all the legos Al flushed down the toilet out. A similar bill to get all the matchbox cars out of the toilet, the total replacement cost for new plumbing and a new toilet - a direct result of the blocks going down (Al had potty issues, ask him about it on facebook sometime if you want to really make his head spin) The $1200 it cost to get the bathroom floor and carpet replaced after the Little Blonde Girl forgot she was running a bath when her BFF called. Or the $200 phone bill she created-we were on metered service, serious boondocks living-talking to that same BFF. The replacement washer required after 'somebody' repeatedly spun dry their jeans to try and loosen them from the agitator when they got caught, the mud pies baked to a golden brown in my oven, the lizard farm in a box kept under a bed, three little boys running nekkid screaming through my back yard cuz they'd kicked the fire ant hill one too many times, the 2 year old (Al again) that used to pull the screen out of his window to walk the dog up to the rental office to get candy when he should have been taking a nap, in his undies and tshirt--- :lol:

sigh---I miss those days. :)

You never know what life will bring. I got pregnant for the first time at 20 and I will likely be raising my daughter for the rest of my life. So don't be in too big of a hurry. Give yourself some time to do whatever else you want to do in life first. When you do find a guy take some time to enjoy him and get to know him before you add babies to the picture because, wonderful as they are, they totally change things and can't be undone. In the meantime revel in being an auntie- borrow the heck out of those kids. Overnight if you can swing it. Good for you, good for their folks, fun for the kiddos. And a few sleepless nights with borrowed kiddos might put that biological clock on snooze for a bit. :D

I'm forgetful because I'm exhausted.

I'm exhausted because work is bleeding me dry.

And, cat sitting for my sister next week, so after work, go to her house to spend time with the cats, then I can begin my life.

It's all so absurd that it should be funny, but it's not.

The gray tabby that visits every day didn't come by today. Hope she's OK.

It's the closest thing to having my own cat I can have until I ditch Psychobeast for good.

She can then eat a bag of dicks for all I care.

I wish I had a round trip aeroplane ticket. I have a place I really want to be.

I am thinking I am going to do whatever I can to be away from the house tomorrow. Maybe I'll take the kids somewhere.

We've acquired a porch puddy. And yes, I stay up at night sometimes, making sure he's come back this way to settle in for the night.

I don't think he'll ever make the transition to house puddy, but at least I know I'm doing what I can to make his life a little better.

I should not have ventured forth. It was an act of will not to freak out.

I dyed some shirts today--and my fingers. Between art and craft projects, digging in the garden, and picking basil, I don't think I could ever get my hands clean enough to ever work in an office or with the public again.

What woke the dog up?

Still hoping to get more gardening customers so I don't have to go get a real job. My neighbor has some more weeding for me to do at her daughter's house, so I've got two days of work this week.

I spend way too much time on Facebook. I don't want to miss anything, but I would like to visit other sites too.

They made a huge mess on my neighbor's porch as well and the mud is ankle thick out there.

Guess I'll be going to the office yet again tomorrow. :roll:

Or maybe I'll send the Big Guy, he's off and I think it is his turn to wander in there and voice an opinion.

It's gonna be a scorcher today, yuck. I think Summer will probably be with us here in SoCal until December.

I woke up to the stench of SKUNK!!!! The little buggers come up out of the canyons around here to dig for worms and such at night in the nice green lawns and they drag their stench with them.

I wish it were cool enough to bake - I would really like to make a loaf of crusty country bread today.

Tomorrow - I fix the running toilet in the master bath. The one in the guest bath is doing the same thing but it will have to wait for payday so I can buy the stuff I need to fix it. I haz mad plumbing skillz - to a point!!

I get skunks every night along with the raccoons that visit my stray cat feeders; they've only stunk up the area once or twice (not counting the time one got Abby! :lol: ) It's funny watching the raccoon kits trying to push the skunks away from the food and water dishes; the skunks just fluff up their tails in the kits faces but have never sprayed them! :lol: :lol:

Tonks, I'm tired out just reading your random thought, :lol: If you get bored on what is left of your vacation, I have a dining room that I need help sorting out ;)

Long road trip today, dinner at youngest son's house. It was nice, Al came down too, probably the last time my boys will get together before Al moves to Florida in a month.

I am not ready for tomorrow...lots of projects to finish this week.

Taking my future DIL shopping for curtains for their new house on Thursday, my wedding present to her.

Wonder how much longer Py is going to insist on being Captain Counter Cat. We're going on six weeks now, it is starting to get old.

Ozone alert day tomorrow. Let the wheezing begin! Today is not one, but I'm having breathing issues anyway.

Lunch with sis yesterday was nice.

When am I going to stop looking for recognition and accept that I'm invisible? It's been this way since I was a child but I forget sometimes and spiral down the well.

I am hoping for no visitors tonight. Probably hoping for too much there.

I got some hair clippies when I'm planning to chop off my hair. :roll: Doy!

Captain Counter Cat - Myet liked to lay in the bathtub when it was hot (until I started to use it as a storage area - the things you can get away with when you live by yourself in a 2 bath condo!!). Cleocatra in her bath!! :lol:

Passed my substance abuse evaluation this morning with flying colors! There will be no need for further 'intensive' treatment. I was so scared I threw up before I left. Very silly of me, lol!


I do have to go to jail for 3 days yet but all other requirements have been fullfilled. I'll probably puke before I go there too.


I wish my soon to be SIL would lay off me a little. He nick-picks me into a frenzy. I dont want my daughter to move out by THEY have to find a house soon, ASAP!


I have found Anne another kitten but it is in 'high demand' !

Yet another clinic appointment for Gabs at 3:30pm today. Sigh. What a long business this is turning out to be.

Nasty weather today. High winds, which have blown the bins out into the road (it's the bin collection day today), coupled with rain showers.

Lupus is down South, in Bristol, collecting his new 'company car'. He seems to be very impressed with it, as it is a 4x4 Honda (if I remember correctly) and goes very fast. Boys and their toys, eh.

Had a great girly night in last night with Gabs. playing Wii games and eating lots of unhealthy stuff. Tesco's had a Ben & Jerry's offer on.

Apparently while neither rain, snow, gloom of night or dogs will prevent Captain Counter Cat and his trusty sidekick Shower Boy from doing their heroic duty, the advent of a lovely new kitteh water fountain will send them screaming like little girls from the room. :roll:

I was reading about karma yoga the other day. The wikipedia article says this: "However, in Vedantic philosophy the word 'Karma' means both action and the effects of such action. Karma Yoga is described as a way of acting, thinking and willing by which one orients oneself toward realization by acting in accordance with one's duty (dharma) without consideration of personal self-centered desires, likes or dislikes. Acting without being attached to the fruits of one's deeds." Is it possible to live life in this way?

Our clerk hurt his back. I been getting to work at 5 am all week to help an RCA from another office to break down the mail. Then I sort and deliver my route.

I have to be there first on Tues and start before someone shows up an hour later to help. Then I have to do my route, which is a whore by itself after a holiday. I'll probably be sorting mail after I get back from the route.

One thing that keeps me going is that I get paid clerk wages for breaking down the mail. Which is 5 bucks more an hour than the really good hourly wage I make as a carrier. :D :D :D :D :D

On the minus side....I'm super tired. I plan on going to bed around 7:30.

The kids are asleep in their brand new bed, placed conveniently near my TV chair - as much as I love having a kitty in my lap - having two of them in my lap and fighting for space is too much, this keeps the mobbing mommy to a minimum.

Has a long talk with Himself today, he's been taking a photography class and I'm dying to see how his technique has improved - he has an "eye" for photos that I do not.

I have to spend next weekend at a retreat for our physicians, along with my boss and the two other analysts. It's a good way to get good insight into how they think and what they want from their practice. It is very tiring though, because I have to play "Vanna White" and write down their thoughts, suggestions and musings on the white board!! Good thing the retreat is within driving distance, I'm not ready to leave the babies home by themselves yet.

Carpwoman's account is still there, search her name.

It pops up and asks me if I want to add her as a friend.

It's weird because it looks like she has no friends.

I'm thinking this must be something weird with FB or her account.

Because removing all her friends but leaving an open account makes no sense.

I sent her a message when I first got the "add as friend" page, but I haven't heard back. Hope she's ok.

I really need to start the online part of the Spanish class, but every time I go online, I get distracted by Facebook. :oops:

It was almost cold today.

I got Tequila to take a decent walk today.

Chocolate.

Sore throat - day four.
I have to finish invoicing, but I want to be home, writing.
I'm making chili tonight. :)
I forgotted the cornbread mix. :(
I have a weird feeling everything is going to be alright.

It's COOL this morning! 55* according to the Weather apps on my putput! Wow!

Why, oh why, did Happy have to wake-a-me up at the buttcrack of dawn?

Trash day. Oh, joy.

Coffee. I may yet live.

5th thought is still happily in the arms of Morpheus.

sad for youngest who broke up with her boyfriend of three years last night. It needed to happen, but she had to make the decision. Nice guy but personally floundering with no apparent future.

Should be doing homework, .ie reading stuff.

Youngest's car needs new brake line, I put brake fluid in last night, we drove around the block and I could see the line of dripping fluid as we returned. SIGH...more expenses we can't afford. Now have one car between two working college students till its fixed.

Work SUCKS, its farking slow at the salon right now, I don't get paid if I am not doing hair....need new job with guaranteed salary.

speaking of hair. i have these sparkley roots that will disappear this morning!

I love the way Vox will dash into a room full speed and leap upon one of the other cats and start washing their ears like he is having some kind of grooming emergancy.

Going to the doctor today, hope she has some new ideas what's going on with my stomach.

Tiiiiired. Not being able to eat much in the way of solid food is not helping.

On the other hand- easiest diet ever. :roll:

My neighbor is having a garage sale. Trying to decide if I should buy her water bath canner.

Blazer will do that. Except as soon as he lulls his victim into complacency, he'll immediately flop over and look at them, like "okay, now you do me" - and 9 times out of 10, they'll comply. :D Sneaky little git.

This has not been a good technology week for me, lol. First my computer headset bites the dust--I suspect it had help, Thank you Sahara.

Then yesterday, all our intewebz went nuts on and off and on and then off for a long time. Not the best thing to happen when you are on a deadline. My back up plan of heading to Borders worked fine, until their interwebz went belly up 20 minutes later.

The newsletters we were frantically trying to get done in-between the interwebz hokey pokey ended up full o' nasty germs that had to hand coded out.

And this morning, I went to charge my blackberry and discovered, the little connector inside is apparently snapped off at the base. RIP Blackberry, I hadn't even begun to learn how to use you.

I am obviously techno cursed this week, :lol: I should probably back away from the computer and go burn some sage.

Carpwoman replied to PM and said she was taking a break.

I can relate - been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

I hope she's back soon, she's a funny funny woman.

I am dreaming of someone getting on a plane and flying out here.

Sad that it's only a dream right now. :cry:

Too many cats

Carpwoman is doing A- okay.....she is living in the now and living life to the fullest. Go carpwoman!!!!! :D

In more ways than one I think. Sahara actually looked right at me and peed in a box this morning. On purpose. And yes, I went out and bought the cheap nasty cat litter that he loves but makes him wheeze. He's made his point.

Is there some sort of low-level cat revolution going on???????

Oh dear Momma I think maybe Thea came through the portal as well in that case!!

no low level here :(

Thea pisses on things RIGHT in front of me :shock:

Can I go to the consultant and leave ONE time without more bad news?????

I found out last night that I can get my Wii online with my WiFi.

I just had to input the password. Except that the Wii calls it a password and the router calls it something else. I figured that out after much gnashing of teeth.

Still didn't work. Oh yeah- my security settings on my router only recognize systems I list. So, I had to figure out how to get into the router settings, then figure out how to get the MAC number from the Wii and enter it on the router.

11:30PM is a bit late to begin such a quest. :roll:

Gus is going through his tyrant phase again :( Maybe he always torments Gibson, but I don't see it. I just don't like it. :(

Feeling bad for Al, after a lot of long hard painful thought, he's ended his engagement tonight. And breaking off all contact with her.

He is actually feeling better than he has in awhile, he tells me though and I do believe him.

And I also think it's for the best, lately my Momma Radar was going off loudly and not in a good way as far as some things about her were concerned.

Any happy comforting thoughts that could be spared his way though, will be greatly appreciated by me.

And crossed fingers that he does find somebody who truly appreciates who he is out there.

7:06pm

09-09-2010 18:27:09

Poor Al! Unfortunately for someone else/better/more suited to him to come along, he did have to shut the door "of her". I hope the miasma of her wears off him soon, though. Sore hearts hurt.

Murphy does that too; I think he does it when he feels I'm ignoring him. :x :x And thens he acts all shocked when I get angry! :shock: :lol:

Glad Carpwoman is ok. I hope she comes back (to FB or here) someday; I love her sense of humor and her LOLcats.

Keeping Al in my thoughts. He will find someone nice, who appreciates and deserves him!

Tomorrow is the reception for the Art League show at the senior center. I have to rush over there after doing yardwork. One of our members just passed away. When I saw the email heading of "sad news," I knew someone had died; it wasn't the person I was afraid it would be. That's the sad part about having a mostly older group. :(

I might try to rush over to the craft store after the reception is over; it closes this weekend, and it would be my last chance to go to one of their scrapbooking events.

A local art gallery is closing too. :(

I'm sorry that Al is going through this. Better now than after the wedding but that's still quite rough.

Been feeling quite sick at my stomach lately. I wish it would stop.

Friday!

September is going really fast.

I guess that's okay, but I just wish something would resolve. I feel like I'm sitting around waiting for my life to catch up with me.

I need to pay some bills, but I can't. Fucking panic attacks.

Gibson is apparently having them too. He jumps at everything.

Vacation is over-now it's just the weekend.

I'm such an idiot. I looked at my migraine pills earlier this week, Monday or Tuesday, when I had a migraine, and thought that the prescription had expired. It expired on 8 Sept. If I had known the correct date when I looked at it, I could have refilled it before it expired.

Where did the day go? It went into the Wii game. :roll:

Feeling bad for my little sister and my stepmom, they had their 17 year old cat Galileo pts yesterday. RIP Gali.

Waiting sucks. I'm tired of mysterious health issues. Stupid stomach.

Time flies way too fast.

Apparently I only have three thoughts.

It's been a damn long 'short' week.

I did get to go into to work at my regular time this am. It was so nice to sleep in.

I was so beat last night that I don't think I moved much all night. I was pretty much in the same position that I went to sleep and the cats were in the same spots. Every joint hurt....that tells me there was not much moving in the night. Probably lots of snoring...but no one complained. Lucky for them! :lol:

Watched 'Book of Eli' this afternoon. Such a good movie. But skip the first 5-10mins of the movie. It was unnesesary (sp) and the movie loses nothing by not viewing it. Seriously...do not watch that part.

Going to see the little man tomorrow! Best day ever!!!!

Why does he pick the nights I need sleep the most to play these games???

Why can't he just leave me alone??

Turn off all your phones and computer devices, lol, and go your arse to bed, honey. Ignore his pre-teen-ness.
