Xmas Time!

It's almost here.  And it's almost over!  2 more days and I can be done with it.  This has been a crazy ass week to say the very least.  The kids are out of school, and thank god the girl is at her dad's house all week because I think I would have gone even crazier with her around.  It all started on Tuesday when my Grandma decided she needed to throw her own little party because of a "rift" in the family.  My cousin, druggie mooch loser that lives in Sacramento, decided he was going to come visit for the holiday's.  Well my mom whose throwing the Xmas party hates, and I use that word very loosely because there really are know words for how much she loathes him, told my grandma that he wasn't welcome in her house.  This leads to lots of crying on grandmas part.  I'm playing Switzerland on this one.  I really cant stand him, but for my grandma, I will play nice.  She raised him so he's like a son to her....blah blah blah, whatever.  So in light of the situation she threw her own party, he didn't show up, bad weather.  Yeah it wasn't that bad, and it's a 2 hour drive so it's not like he couldn't have left in the afternoon.  Anyways, that was that.

Yesterday, we made our way to the most evil place on earth, Walmart.  I forgot to get stocking stuffers.  So over a hundred dollars later, and a bunch of shit that wont fit in the stockings, I can say I'm finally done.  Bipolar minion called in yesterday.  I made her work on Tuesday, delivering our wine boxes to our clients.  WTF?  We had a break in the weather, it was sunny, and it was the best day to get it done.  Well the boss lady finally had enough, and we had "the chat"  I'm like fire her.  She wants to have a meeting with her.  You can talk till your blue in the face lady, it's not going to help.  She has to many problems.  My only concern is she's talking if we fire her, they are thinking of not replacing her.  That would only leave 2 of us which is NOT good.  Especially when we have to cover for the receptionist when she's out.  Then what if one of us is sick?  I said a part timer would be OK, but I would rather have another full time person so I have more time to do the stuff I need to do.  If not the secretaries are going to be on their own a lot for their files.  What to do, what to do?  We all took bets on whether she would show up today, and that would be a big fat negative!

I have 10 whole days off starting tomorrow.  I cant wait!  Well I hope everyone has a great holiday, and happy new year!

It's OVER!

The school production nightmares are over!  It started Tuesday with the boys.  The entire first grade sang songs and played instruments (xylophones, nothing special) anyways, my son being the clown that he is was right in the middle and the hubby was waving and making faces at him, so in return the boy got all silly and was making faces the entire time and throwing up the "devil horns" every 5 minutes.  Totally over emphasizing every movement he made, it was funny, but I'm sure annoyed some parents.  Plus the stupid music teacher was like oh I didn't think this many people would show up.  Really?  The entire first grade is singing and you didn't think that their family's wouldn't come?  What are they just suppose to drop them off at the door and go have a drink for an hour?  Dumbass!

Wednesday, I was NOT in a good mood at all.  I decided since we had all this crap this week, we should at least try and hit the gym once.  So I get home after an incredibly busy day at work to hear the hubby complain that he's all stiff and can barely move from having to be on his hands and knees all day installing pergo at some place he's working at.  DUDE, I don't fucking care.  Take a pill, and shut it.  It's not all about you.  So I go to the gym and continue to yell at my mom about him, work and everyone else's problems I had to deal with all day.  Then I see a commercial for one of the hotels in town and was all, that's what I need, a steak, a martini, and a fucking massage to get my ass in a better mood.  My mom started to laugh and said don't you remember when you were young, you used to stand out in the driveway warning people not to go in the house because "I was evil"  I said no, and started to laugh my ass off.  It did cheer me up.......a little.

Yesterday I was in a great mood, I had called my mom that morning and she was like are you feeling better today?  I said yeah I feel great, I think it was just a touch of PMS or something.  She started laughing and was like I was going to ask if you were on the rag yesterday but didn't want my head getting ripped off.  Yeah I know, I was a bitch.  I picked up the kids, got the girl dressed for her choir thing, and we made our way to the school.  The all gathered on the risers and did their songs.  My daughter and all her glory stood there for an hour itching herself all over, adjusting her tights, and pretty much looked like she had either ants in her pants or turrets.  It was a little embarrassing.  However that's until I noticed the very enthusiastic lad on the top row singing as loud as he could, and well the only way I can describe it was either he thought he was in a Broadway show with the constant throwing of jazz hands, or he was being overly obnoxious.  Either way even my son asked why is he singing so loud?  It was funny though because out of 75ish kids, he was the only one you could hear.

I am finally getting my hair cut today.  I am so fucking excited.  I have been waiting FOREVER to be able to afford to go see the gal who does it right.  I would rather pay to have it done correctly then be cheap and have 50 crappy haircuts.  Although I did it last march and just now it's grown out enough to have it re-done.  Never again!  So the boy threw a small tantrum this morning.  It was kind of funny, I left the school cracking up.  OK he got some new hoodies, he's been all into wearing them.  Which is fine, the weather has been pretty mild so he doesn't have to wear a coat.  Well it's snowing this morning and he was throwing a big fit about having to wear his coat with the sweatshirt.  Pouted all the way to school, then gets out and was like aaaahhhhhhhhhh, while throwing punches in the air.  HAHAHA, WOW was he PISSED, but I know best and he will get over it.

Have a nice weekend all!

Almost Time!

Well Christmas is almost here.  I cant wait to be done with it to tell you the truth.  After almost having to bankrupt myself due to the expensive shit that the kids want every year, I decided fuck them, I'm not doing it this year.  I went minimal.  I am tired of getting them things that they play with for like two seconds, then in the spring their rooms end up being so cluttered with crap that I end up throwing shit away.  I'm sick of it.  So, if they are disappointed, OH WELL.  I went out on Saturday and finished my shopping, which consisted of buying for 2 cousins of mine, we'll just call them fatty and retard (I cant stand them if you hadn't noticed) I got some movie gift cards, because I am all about the let's knock as many people off the Xmas list at one place type of person.  Then, light bulb went off and knocked a third off the list.  So I basically shopped at 2 places and got everything done.  YAY me!  However I do have to go to, UGH, I don't even want to say it, Walmart.  The unholiest of stores especially this time of year to get a movie that came out today for the girl.  OK then I'm done, really!

I have a suck ass busy week ahead.  Tonight is my son's Xmas singing thing at the school.  Thursday, it's the girls singing thing at the school.  Which I have already heard the songs like 2 times already.  Last Friday she had a little singing thing at the governors mansion with her choir, then the school had some winter wonderland thing going on and I got dragged to that.  Where I had to hear the whole rendition of songs over again.  Cant wait for round 3 of jingle bells this Thursday!

We went and finally got a damn tree on Sunday.  That was the biggest waste of $40.00 EVER.  I cant believe we spent that much on a fucking tree that will be up for 2 weeks.  Cause that suckers coming down Xmas day as always.  Yeah I know, bah humbug.  But Xmas is over, the tree looks sad with no presents under it, and I don't want to water it anymore.  Well hopefully I can get into the Christmas spirit here one of these days soon.  And I'm betting on probably not.

The bitch caught me red handed.

Well the girl probably no longer believes in the tooth fairy.  She lost her tooth and of course I have nothing smaller then a $20 in my wallet and she wasn't getting that.  And unless she wanted a bag of change from the tooth fairy, I stole a dollar from her purse to give back to her (don't judge me) and before I got in the shower, crept into her room and tried to slide it under her pillow when the edges caught and made this sssscccchhhhh sound.  Of course she wakes up and is like what are you doing?  I quickly said, uh, I heard a noise and I was just checking on you.  Then closed the door.  I think she suspects something, but hasn't said anything yet and didn't say (like she always does) look I got a buck from the tooth fairy.  Maybe I actually put it in her pillow case by accident, it was dark.

So the hubby is playing sick, well he has a cold, but you know how men get.  It's like the whole world is coming to an end.  So needless to say he hasn't been in the best of moods over the last couple of days.  My phone beeped at 2 this morning and he was like shut that fucking thing off.  I forgot to turn off the ringer, like I do every night because of my relatives on facebook posting shit from different time zones.  So in the middle of the night we were fighting.  Oh and then he gets up this morning and looks at his bank account and cant figure out why it said he had a buck nine last night, but doesn't say that this morning.  I'm like because it's constantly changing due to your transactions so it will never be the same.  Well I don't get it.  Well stop using your ATM card like it's burning a hole in your pocket.  I swear this is why we have separate accounts now.  Because he couldn't figure out why we had no money, but would continue to use that card.  Now if he's out that's his problem.

This month is going to be trouble for me.  The food everyday is killing me.  Everyday during the month of December 1 or 2 people bring food for the office.  I have been stuffed everyday to the point of not wanting to even eat dinner.  And god help me we are only 9 days into December.  One gal made Benyas (sorry I spelled that wrong, but you get the point) I went to the gym that night and was on the elliptical talking to myself saying burning off the benyas, burning off the benyas.  If I come out of this month without gaining more then 5 pounds, it will be a fucking miracle.

Its going to be a busy month.

Well I haven't had time to do anything because work has been so busy this month.  So I got up early to write something short and sweet.

Xmas party on Friday was OK.  I won the grand prize so that was awesome.  $300.00, and I can totally use it to.  Funny thing that happened was one of the secretaries had shoulder surgery.  Shes been out for like 6 weeks and her arm is still in the sling.  She came to the party, and trapped one of the co workers in the bathroom to help her zip up her pants, the funny thing about it was the 3rd person in the bathroom heard it and told the entire office while we were eating lunch.  We laughed so hard, especially when they both came out of the bathroom.

That night the hubby and I went out with a couple of my friends.  Yes he was hanging out with the girls.  All was good except I was so full from the steak I ate I couldn't fit much more in my stomach, so we went to 3 different places and I had 2 drinks.  Water at the last place.  I should have known the hubby was getting hammered when he started to talk relationships with one of the girls.  He was like giiiirrrrlll, if he hasn't committed by now then he wont ever.  If you move and he doesn't follow you, you need to dump his ass.  After about an hour of this I decided to drive his drunk ass home.  He was one hung over son of a bitch on Saturday..........It wasn't pretty!

I went to the mall on Saturday in an attempt to find the girl something for Xmas.  She's 10 and at that wonderful age where she doesn't really want toys or anything.  Its so hard to buy for her right now.  I figured milling around the mall I was bound to find something.  And the mother load I did. I found this store called Justice and it was girl overload.  All things her age that she would like.  Needless to say she is done.  I still have 3 more to buy for, but that's going to be easy.  Hell I don't even have a tree yet, I think I better to get on it before Xmas is over.

Work right now is busy.  I get the job of putting together all the client gift boxes and mailing out candy to all the "Other" clients and businesses.  It their way to kiss ass.  It's fun though,  keeps my ass doing something all day for the rest of the month.  So my posts may slow down a bit.  I will try to do it as much as I can, but It might get quiet for a few days.

Happy Tuesday!

This post is going to be a lot to digest!

I know, I know, it has been forever since my last post.  Sorry, but its been a long holiday week......end!  OK, where to begin?????  How about Wednesday.  Of course the hubby took the day off as well.  Fuck if I can get a damn day to myself once and a while.  So in return for him ruining my day, I made him chauffeur my ass around all day.  First thing in the morning we went and got some wood from his dads shop.  Well we stole wood from his dads shop.  He neglected to go wood cutting this year, so we are left with no wood for the fireplace to keep warm.  And JESUS, I think we had the coldest week on record for November EVER, last week.  After that we decided to brave Walmart.  I had to pick up a few things for my moms elderly neighbor......I know I'm a fucking saint.  Then we looked at a loft bed for the boy.  His bed is turning to crap and we thought this would give him more room to play.  More on that little fiasco later!  I swear I think half the town took that day off just to get ready for Thanksgiving.  The stores were PACKED.  We made our way over to Costco, another one of my favorites.  I managed to get out of there for $100.00.  I came up with a basic concept for shopping there.  Count everything you have in your cart at $10.00 and usually it comes really close to the total cost.  It works every time.  So yes, I had 10 things :(  and you know what else, they really need a frigging 10 items or less checkout in that fucking store.

The girl was sick all week and stayed at my grandmas house in order not to infect the rest of the house.  Only draw back to that was my grandma had Thanksgiving and we are lucky she didn't contaminate the whole dinner.  I sent the hubby out early Thursday morning to get milk and eggs for breakfast (yes I forgot them at both the stores I went to the previous day)  and a paper for the black Friday ads to peruse for my shopping excursion.  We had Thanksgiving dinner.....blah......blah.....blah, typical crap nothing worth mentioning.  Then I stayed up till 11:45 when my BFF picked my tired ass up and we started the whole ordeal.  First we hit the casino for coffee and breakfast.  12:30  Walmart.  I did most of my shopping, but was waiting till 5 so I could get a TV for my son that was on sale for $150.00 less then the original price.  Then we went back to the casino to kill an hour before Kohl's opened at 3.  I know I'm crazy, but in the past I have managed to get all my shopping done in a matter of hours.  This year not so lucky.  I did however come out $9.00 ahead from playing the slots :)  YAY me.  So on to Kohl's :(  The line was ridiculous waiting to get into the store.  We finally made it in and made on trip halfway around the store, hit the line to check out and stood there for 30 minutes for 3 things.  I had one item and she had two.  By the time we checked out it was almost 4 just in time for Target to open.  HA, what a fucking joke.  We parked noticed the line was like 2 miles long, they had 1 door open letting people in, we walked half the line said fuck it and left.  Back to Walmart only this time we went to the one on the other side of town, figuring it would be less crowded.  So we walk in and oh yeah I also got suckered into getting a TV for his dad as well.....since I was already there and all.  Needless to say I wasn't to happy about it, but we did steal his wood.  I get in there looks pretty good, not a lot of people, its 45 minutes before 5 I see some people in line at pillars with TVS on them so I ask the clerk wheres the line for the 50 inch and wheres the line for the 32 inch?  He says the 50 inch is over there and the 32 is in electronics.  My BFF says I will go to electronics and stand in that line.  So I get in the other.  I am #9 in line and the lady says OK we only have 11 TV's......cool score!  I get a call 10 minutes later, BFF says there are 100 people in line for 50 TV's.  DAMN well looks like the boy is getting something else.  So my mom and aunt show up and get in line behind me cause the aunt is getting a TV too.  We get out tickets at 5 and am told go to the checkout pay for it then go get your car, drive to garden and they will load it for you.  Seems simple enough.  We go to garden, in her little Hyundai mind you, but the hubby swears the TV will fit.  Uh huh, while he's at home in a nice warm bed and I'm freezing my balls off shopping at ungodly hours just for a deal.  Well guess what?  The TV wasn't even gonna come close to fitting.  Thank god my uncle was 3 cars back in his truck and took it for me, or we would have had to strap it to the roof, like the Xmas tree in Christmas vacation.  Long ass story short (I know sorry)  I made it home at 7 am.  I stayed up 24 hours to go shopping and got not even half of it done.  Very disappointing year.  I slept till 10 am and decided to stay up and lay in bed all day just to sleep later that night.  I made it till 7 pm before i passed out, then slept 12 1/2 hours.  I felt GREAT on Saturday morning.

Saturday was the great Walmart fiasco.  The hubby had shown the boy a picture of the new bed we were going to get and promised to get it on Friday.  Well both Walmarts in town were out, I was in a zombie like state so we decided to go to Reno to get it on Saturday.  We stoped at Texas Roadhouse for lunch Yumm, my favorite.  Then off to the first Walmart.  No bed, next Walmart, no bed, next Walmart, no bed.  Finally I say let me get online and see which one has it in stock, cause there are like 10 Walmarts in Reno.  Of course the only one that carried it is way the fuck out in Sparks like 20 miles away.  We get there and SCORE, 1 left.  Quickly grab a cart and pay and leave, all while the hubby's head is ready to explode over the fact we just drove 60 miles and 6 stores looking for a bed.  But I wasn't the one that PROMISED it to him, you were, so he had to deliver.  Next was putting the thing together, that took 3 hours.  Then we cleaned out his closet and toy box, and piled everything into the living room to get rid of.  Some kid is going to have a nice Xmas with all the toys we got rid of.  I really should have thought this whole loft bed through.  It seemed like a really good idea until the bed was put together and I had to put sheets on it.  I had to have the hubby take the mattress down just to get the sheet on then had to stand on a 3 step, step stool to make the thing half assed, I even had the boy get up there and finish making it.  Bad choice on our part, but he loves it and that's all that matters.

Sunday we did NOTHING, but sit around with the fire going.  A nice relaxing day.  And the last 2 days of work have been busy as hell.  This Friday is our company Xmas party, so that should be fun.  I should have lots to report on that one.  It's always interesting.

Happy Hump Day!

My brain is fried and it's only Tuesday!

Where to begin?  HHHMMM, OK lets start with Saturday.  I got up and the weather forecast was calling for a big storm.  To my surprise the sky was blue and not a single hint of snow.  It was freezing balls out, but still pretty.  I figured the weather guy lied again.  I called my mom and asked her if she wanted to go to Kohl's with me, seeing as how she owed me a new pair of jeans.  I managed to swindle a sweater out of her too, because the jeans were on sale and I had a $10.00 off coupon.  Then we went to my most favorite store in the world......Walmart :(  I had to get my son a new winter jacket, since it was suppose to snow.  Then we headed to Costco for lunch.  We didn't actually buy anything, just went to all the food stations and ate.  I swear I had an entire thanksgiving meal from 5 of the stations.  So I get home to find the oldest kid hanging out at the house.  The hubby tells me that we are all going out to dinner (since dopey shit spent his 19th birthday back in jail, kind of a repeat of his 18th)  I was like fine with me, whatever.  So dopey shit says well I'm going to go hang out with my girlfriend and I'll be back at 5 to go to dinner.  Instant suspicion on my part, but hey not my kid.  The hubby reluctantly agrees and so 5 rolls around and no kid.  He texts him and says where are you we are leaving?  He says I'll be there in 10 minutes.  We wait.......20 minutes later we were just about to leave without his ass, and he comes walking up.  Gets in the truck and alls I smell is mouthwash.  But being me and needing to mind my own damn business I say nothing.  Then the hubby says that's some pretty strong mint coming from you, what have you been doing?  Nothing he replies, it's my gum.  Uh huh, sure it is.  So he says why didn't she drop you off at the house?  Why were you walking?  He comes up with some lame excuse that she dropped him off at Walgreen's cause she had to go to a BBQ.  Whatever I'm thinking fucking liar.  So we get to the restaurant, and he's like I gotta go to the bathroom.  He's gone like 15 minutes and the hubby says gee he's taking a long time.  DUH!!!!  Because he's either high or drunk I haven't quite figured it out yet, but still I say nothing but uh huh.  So we order and I am noticing how twitchy he seems to be and think HIGH.  And considering he said he was starving and barley ate anything was another indicator.  I swear these kids think that we are so stupid.  Dude I was your age once, I did the same thing (well I was smart enough to do it, have fun, then straighten my ass up and be an adult)  anyways cant pull the wool over my eyes.  So then after dinner he makes this lame excuse up that he needs to be dropped off at his friends house.  Seriously I thought the hubby's head was going to explode because he knew what was going on, but didn't say anything surprisingly.  After he dropped him off he called the mom and found out the kid wasn't with the girlfriend at all.  Once again DUH, I could have told you that.  And there you have it.  That was Saturday.

Sunday was nothing spectacular.  It actually did snow like 5 inches, so we pretty much stayed in by the fire place all day.  Had some pizza for dinner, and watched some movies.  Nothing exciting except when step bastard decided to come home.  I think the hubster was still pissed about Saturday night with dopey shit and blew his top.......FINALLY.  He gave the step bastard the suburban to drive (our extra snow/kid/family car) because of his broken arms.  He just got the casts off and went back to school.  Gives the jobless asshat $30.00 for gas and says make sure your mom pitches in too, cause that thing is a gas hog and you are going to not have enough gas to get you through the week if your driving it all over the place.  Well, mom gave him money, he lied to the hubby about how much and turns out he ended up with like $60.00 total.  Put 20 on for gas and spent the rest.  Then wants a new car.  First of all you have no job, second of all does it look like we are made of money?  We are about to lose our house, but the free truck in the driveway isn't good enough.  You want something else.  You do no chores, you have no job, but everyone owes you.  What a little fucker.  I was glad and snickering when the hubby was laying into him.  Needless to say he went to his moms for the week.  Oh yes and I find out the girl decided while at her dads that she needed to shave her legs.....she's 10.  And proceeded to cut the shit out of her shin.  I asked her why she did that and she says the kids at school made fun of my hairy legs........IT"S WINTER!  You haven't worn shorts in like 2 months.  I simply say when you get hair in your pits, you can shave your legs, until then NO!

Monday, the school calls, the girl has a fever.  HUH, not now.  So grandma goes and picks her up.  I make an appointment with the doctor because that girl usually ends up with strep.  Leave early go get her, take her to the doctor and she says I think she has a virus.  No strep thank god, but if she's not better in a couple of days call and I will call in some antibiotics.  Why cant you just give them to me now?  In a couple of days it will be thanksgiving and she will be infecting EVERYONE.  But I left dropped her back off at grandmas so she wouldn't have to get up in the morning.  Go home and plopped my ass on the couch with a headache for the rest of the night.

Today,  I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off this morning.  First off to the bank to cash a check so I can go to the post office to get a money order for this mediation thing because they wont take personal checks.  Then to the post office get the money order, mail my crap, pick up the mail for work and head back.  All while calling the doctor's office because the girl still has a fever and I want MEDS.  Grandma says I have to go get rolls for thanksgiving so I will get the meds while I'm out.  Great, until it started to blizzard out, so guess who ended up getting the rolls and the meds.......ME.  At lunch time I dropped everything off had lunch and left, then she calls me AGAIN (grandma)  She needed bread and decided to go out, I was like I could have got it for you when I went to get the rolls.  Anyways she says her garage door fell off the track again.  Of course it did, so now I have to call hubby to fix it.  He says well I guess I'll just leave early and blame you when we don't have any money.  DUDE, it can wait till you get off, don't use that as an excuse to leave.  He should be in a wonderful mood when I get home.  Oh and I took tomorrow off so I could clean the house and relax a little kid and hubby free.  OH NO, guess who decided to take the day with me.  HIM (blame me cause we have no money my ass it's your own damn fault).  So now I gotta deal with his ass all day.  I think I'd rather come to work.  At least I did get my bonus today to go shopping on Friday.  That's one good thing.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, I sure I will be back next Monday unless I get a free minute.

Not Much Happenig.

Yesterday was a nightmare.  It was so busy, everyone was in a pissy mood, and I am surprised no one ended up in a fist fight.  It all started about 2 :30 when I was on my break.  Bipolar comes out and says can you go pick these up (boxes of files from our storage) I was like sure, until she handed me the list.  I'm like your gonna have to do this cause I cant fit 22 boxes in my car.  She has a truck, so better her then me.  Of course I got nothing but complaining about that.  Menopausal went out of town, which left me to do a ton of errands myself.  Not that I cant handle it, and it makes the day go faster, but DAMN, there was a lot.  And of course the court clerks these days are working in extra slow motion.  I spent 20 minutes just waiting for her ass to get back to the counter.  Then I finally get back to work to hear all the bullshit.  Bipolar: (insert whiny voice here) "Granola Attorney is yelling at me because she doesn't like the way the boxes are closed."  Menopausal: "Why didn't bipolar collect the glasses while I was gone?  A few of the attorney's have 4-5 glasses on their desks"  Me:  Because she's lazy I don't know?"  Menopausal to Bipolar: "Why didn't you get everything?  Her:  (in super bitch voice)  "Because every time I went in there to get them they were talking with another attorney and I didn't want to bug them"  Menopause's reply:  "Just walk in there and get them, they wont even notice it's not like you have to say anything"  Bipolar: "  WHATEVER, I'm not going to bother them"  Menopausal head about to explode, and they both walk away.  Thank god it's about time for me to leave at this point.  After I did some complaining of my own to our computer genie, I started to head for the door.  Menopausal stops me and said "did you hear the way she snapped at me?"  Yes.  She is a little stressed at the moment.  Menopausal: "I don't care what she is, I'm tired of it and she's not going to talk to me that way"  Me:  She does it to me all the time, just tell her to shut it.  I am half tempted to tell them both to duke it out and be over it already.  Oh yeah, the reason bipolar is so stressed out is because her boyfriend finally got a job, now she has no one to watch her kid.  I told her sign her up for latchkey, but she says she's broke.  And the boss lady told her she couldn't take anymore time off.  HAHAHA, that would be my fault for bitching to her that she calls in to much.  OH WELL!

When I got home last night, the hubby was still in full PMS mode.  Then tells me that there is no work from after thanksgiving till Christmas.  Awesome.  Good thing we aren't making the house payment.  This is actually a weekly thing now a days.  We have work, we don't have work.  And when it comes down to it, something always pops up at the last minute and he usually works 5 days a week.  So I am not that worried about it.  and if he is off for a month, I will just make him my house bitch.  Cook, clean, and do the laundry.

I cant wait to go home and see whats in store for me tonight.  I tell you I am going home, throwing on my gym clothes and getting the hell out of there before any kind of shit hits the fan.  At least the gym is a good way to work off the stress for an hour.  Then back to reality.

Is it Friday Yet?

I am so ready for the weekend.  It's going to be one of those snowy, sitting my ass on the couch in front of the fireplace weekends.  I cant believe we are suppose to get snow this early.  Oh well, I guess no raking leaves for me this weekend......damn the bad luck!

I hope the hubby gets in a better mood.  It seems like we are both on the same cycle this month.  It's like PMS city in my house right now.  Only mine is legitimate  He woke me up complaining about having to plunge the toilet that I guess the girl clogged up last night.  Oh well, she's 10 and was probably to embarrassed to tell me that she plugged the toilet up.  I swear it's like he spent the whole morning plunging the toilet, when in reality it only took him exactly one minute to do.  He's like now I'm late.  No your not.  He left right on time.  DRAMA I tell you, that's all men are good for.  And here they think women are bad, they should listen to themselves once and a while.

Thanksgiving is next week.  Another pointless holiday in my book. Here's what I'm thankful for.   I'm thankful I get 2 days off for this bullshit holiday.  We are going to my Grandmas this year.  We were going to see his Dad again like last year in So. California, but thought we better save the money instead (just in case we have to move).  I did have a really nice time last year though.  The weather was AWESOME, we ate on the patio, and there were only 10 of us.  Not that I hate my family or anything, but it was nice to do something different.  We even took the kids to Disneyland.  We all had fun till the drive home when we hit snow.  So long story short instead of a 7 hour drive it turned into a 12 hour drive home.  Maybe next year!

I do kind of enjoy this time of year because of all the work I get out of.  Our Christmas party for the office is on the 3rd of December so we only have to work half day there.  And everyone brings food everyday for the whole month.  I look forward to one day of the year when the one attorney in my office brings these meat pie things you dip in steak sauce.  YUMM, I skip breakfast on that day so I can over stuff myself on them.  Speaking of meat, and my need to sneak eat it (in case your new, the hubby is diabetic and we both stopped eating red meat, but I eat it when he's not around.  What, I cant give up burgers or steak)  I was having this craving for a french dip for like a week, so I took my happy ass to Applebees yesterday and got myself some french dip sliders.  OMG, were they so good.  They only gave me 2, which was probably a good thing, I could have ate like 5 of them.  Didn't really do all that great for my stomach this morning, but it was worth it.  I am still needing a big fat steak to top off the craving.  Or a burger might work too!  Maybe lunch again today?  Not that I am really complaining, I did lose 35 pounds due to his new diet.

The bag of chips walked away.

The hubby was in a frenzy last night looking for a bag of Doritos we bought on Friday.  The bag seemed to have developed legs and walked right out of the pantry.  Yeah right.  Did you eat them he asks me, no.  Then he asks the step bastard, who is now back and food seems to be missing left and right.  No, wasn't me he says.  Yeah right, your the only one in this house who would actually sit and eat an entire bag of chips in one sitting.......FAT ASS.  Lies I tell you, all lies that come out of his mouth.  So the hubby says did we actually get the bag from the store?  Yes I put them away, I remember.  Are you sure?  YES your fucking pig of a son ate them, get it through your head.  Speaking of the step bastard, yay back to cold showers again for me.  I said hey this isn't your moms house ease up on the hot water.  So then the hubby says hey, can you stop being such a bitch.  Uh NO, I HATE HIM.  He says his uncle died today.  I was like how the hell was I suppose to know that.  He says just go easy on him tonight.  Whatever!  Come to find out later on, Mr. sissy la la conned his dad into letting him go to his moms because I guess his uncle lived fairly close to us and it was to hard to be in the same neighborhood, oh and this supposed uncle, he didn't even know that well.  So why so sad, you met him like twice.  Sounds like a bunch of bullshit to me.  Dude just let him go live over there and we will all be happy.

It was a freaking busy day at work yesterday.  Menopausal minion is on vacation, so it was just me and Bipolar.  Fun stuff.  Of course, I did most of the work.  I hate working with her.  I took my sweet ass time doing errands, because I knew there was more when I got back to the office.  She went to Minden yesterday for a filing, so we got back around the same time and she was like theres more, I said I know and your going to have to take them.  Huff and puff, fine she says I guess I'll see you tomorrow since their all the way across town.  Yep.....booo hooo bitch.

I am plotting my black Friday shopping excursion this year, like every year.  Suck Ass Wal-Mart is opening at midnight this year.  WTF?  My friend is like I guess it's gonna be an all nighter.  AHHH NOOO.  She's like yeah we can sleep in the car.  AAAHHH NNNOOOO.  I dont need anything that bad, but then again, I could probably get most of my shopping done with less people and then go home and go to bed.  HHHHMMM things to think about.  And it's going to be a chinsey year for everyone considering they have enough crap.  I suggested to the hubby that we get step bastard a net book for Christmas that way he has no reason to leave his room to use the computer.  Just stay in there, and dont bug me.  I realize that you probably think I am pulling your leg on how EVIL this kid really is, but to be honest I HATE him more then anyone I have ever hated in my entire life.  He ranks up there with Sarah Palin in my book.  One more year, one more year, then he's 18 and by by.  I think I might throw a freaking party over it.

Almost over.

Now that the weekend is coming to a close, lets review:

Thursday I spent most of the day doing the mediation paperwork.  It was not as easy as I thought it was going to be.  It took me 3 hours to figure out what my payment was without taxes and insurance impounded into my loan.  I had to go in search of the house paperwork just to see what all the interest rates were.  What a pain in the ass.  I still have to write a frigging letter of hardship to go along worth it.  I have been trying to formulate in my head how this is going to go, but so far haven't come up with anything.  I would love to just say " I'm not going to pay that much for this crap shack I live in, so either fix the loan or shove it up your ass"  However I don't think that will go over well, so I have to finesse it a little.  It was a god send that grandma took the kids.  She didn't bring them back till 6:30 at night, and with a pizza.  It was great no kids and I didn't have to cook.

Friday, we all took bets on whether Bipolar minion was going to come in or not.  Surprisingly she did.  The morning went pretty fast and then I spent the afternoon at the reception desk reading.  Nice easy day.  Until I got home and had to brave Wal-Mart for some stuff and get a gift for the birthday party my son was going to on Saturday.  Wal-Mart on a Friday after work SUCKS BALLS.  I finally got some hair dye though, the greys were kind of getting out of hand.

I took the dog to the vet for her re-check yesterday.  Her ear is getting better, but still not healed yet.  they flushed it out and we have to go back in 2 weeks.  I swear the vet is worse then pediatricians with the rechecks.  But we love her and will do it.  Last night we went to dinner for my Aunts birthday.  She asked my son if he had a girlfriend and he said I did but I dumped her.  Whoa, what?  This is the first Ive heard of this and your 7.  I said you dumped her?  He says yeah she was crazy.  What the hell?  I said what was her name, he says Emily.  I say how did you dump her?  He says I just told her I dump you, and she said she didn't care.  Oh god, already, and it's only the first grade, I'm fucked.

YYYYYYEEEEEESSSSSS!

Fucking A, this day just keeps getting better and better.  I slept in this morning till 7, I got up and made some pancakes for the boy.  The girl stayed the night at grandmas house.  And grandma just called and is taking the kids swimming today and then to dinner.  OMG! A day to myself.  Hubby is at work and the kids are gone, AWESOME!  What am I going to do with myself today?  Absolutely NOTHING.  Well that's not true I have a ton of paperwork to fill out for this mediation thing, so at least I can get that done without interruptions.

I am glad to see the sun out today.  It was snow, sun, rain, all day yesterday.  And it was freezing.  I am so not ready for winter.  Bipolar called in yesterday.  Shocker, it is a day before the holiday, but I figured she would call in on Friday instead to give herself a 4 day weekend.  I saw my boss digging through her drawer yesterday, so I hope she was going to get in trouble at least.  But then I realized she was running payroll yesterday and was looking for her time sheet to see how much time she needs to dock her pay for being off so much.  If she calls in on Friday I wont be surprised.  We are trying to devise an office pool system on whether she will be in or not, but we haven't quite figured out a good system yet, cause we all seem to vote the same way every time.  Maybe we should all just put in 5 bucks and when she calls in we all win and go to lunch.  Boy we will be eating out a lot!

We took the step bastard to dinner last night for his birthday.  UGH, I cant stand him.  He has been at his moms for the last month because of the broken arms.  The casts came off on Wednesday.  Boo, that means he's coming back here to start going back to school on Monday.  It has been so nice here without him.  I hoped since the other kid got kicked out of moms house that he would decide to stay there permanently.  Damn the bad luck!  One more year and he's 18 then by by bastard.

The hubby stayed home yesterday because of no work.  I came home for lunch and he was watching cartoons?  I am like your watching Phineas and Ferb?  He's like there's nothing on.  So your watching cartoons?  OK, there really must be nothing on.  I was like you could have made me lunch or something.  He's like yeah I was going to but forgot.  I said well my dinner better be ready when I get home tonight biatch.....lol!  You see how that turned out, we went out.  I made him cook the other night and he was complaining about something, and I said it's tough being the wife isnt it?  He didnt find that funny, but I did.

Well Happy Veterans Day all!  Enjoy your day off if you got it.

Crazy Changes to Come!

Well I am starting the crazy process of trying to keep my house.  Two Thursdays ago, when I went home sick from work, I was laying in bed half asleep watching TV when my dog started barking her head off.  It scared the shit out of me.  She doesn't usually bark in the house like that and I thought someone was breaking in.  So I jumped out of bed and hear a knock at the door.  I opened it and some guy hands me papers and says I'm going to take a picture of your address.  I closed the door and it was my notice of default on the house ( I knew it was coming because my Aunt who works for a title company called me).  If you have been reading this for a while, you know that we decided to let the house go because of our crap adjustable loan we and millions of other people got suckered into.  And we are so under valued of what we owe, there is no chance we can refinance.  Oh and our credit is now CRAP, thanks to all of this!  Anyways, because I work for a law firm, one of the perks is tons of free legal advice.  YAY for that.  So a couple of the secretary's mentioned a mediation process.  They explained what it was and that it was worth a try considering I really don't want to give the house up.  I mean I bought it so I wouldn't EVER have to move again.  I HATE moving.  And in all honesty, I am prepared to let it go, but I really don't want to.  I got married in that house.  So at their suggestion I went to talk to one of the lawyers who has been doing foreclosure stuff yesterday.  She made me feel a whole lot better about this mediation I am going to try.  This is my last ditch effort.  She said they have been having a high rate of success for people that opt to do it.  So fingers crossed. 

Last Wednesday my car was making this really loud squeaky belt noise.  It's been there for a while, but it didn't bother me all that much.  Hey it's 11 years old, and a piece of shit.  But it wont die so I can get a new one.  So I will run it into the ground.  Damn Nissan's.  The squeak got considerably loud and annoying so I asked the hubby to spray some belt lube on it or something to get it to stop.  Well, that was NOT a good idea.  For an hour I heard him screaming at the top of his lungs in the driveway " MOTHER FUCKER"  "FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT"  "I FUCKING HATE THIS CAR!"  Followed by the sound of the car being reved to the max (I think he was trying to blow it up, yet it still continues to run) then he comes in the house says "don't ever ask me to fix that fucking car ever again"  He shows me his hand, which is caked with grease and belt lube that wont come off and a burn on the palm of his hand.  He says that car is meant to be fixed by tiny Japanese people with little hands, not me.  Takes his keys and leaves.  He was so pissed that he actually had to go drive around for half an hour to calm down.  Oh and he made the squeak worse by the way.

I picked up the girl from latchkey last week and she was sitting on the stage with her head down like she was sick.  I said whats wrong?  That's when the babysitter kid (I don't know what their called) says that a boy punched her in the stomach.  OK, So on our way to the car I said what happened.  She basically picked a fight with the kid, and he punched her.  I said you know, if your going to pick a fight with a boy, you better be prepared to back it up.  Or if he was bothering you walk away and tell the staff kid.  She says what, was I suppose to let him keep kicking me.  I said no you should have told the staff.  She says I told him I wasn't afraid of him.  I said look if he punched you, thats your fault.  That's not right of him to do but antagonizing him isn't either.  So it's all my fault she says.  Yes to a point.  So what am I suppose to do, just let him hit me, I said if your not going to tell the staff, and that happens again then hit him back.  I guarantee he wont do it again.  Yes I know I just told my kid to hit another kid, but this kid does look like a little ass hat.  Even my son was complaining about him.  So far it's been pretty quiet there, I don't think that goes to the after school program anymore.

On Saturday I took the poor dog to the vet.  She had an ear infection, and needed her shots.  This is the first time we went to this vet.  I decided to change cause it was closer to my house.  They were super nice, and I am glad I did it.  The even have a web page that gives me access to all her shot records, meds and I can even schedule appointments.  I swear since we got her as a puppy, she has always had ear infections.  Worse then a kid I tell you, but we love her.  I noticed it 3 days ago, and the Vet said her ear is full of so much gunk she couldn't see her ear drum.  Poor thing.  She was moping the last couple of days but this morning I think she's feeling better, because she was back to her usual self.  The vet did happen to mention laying off the treats cause she was a little overweight. She looks like a suasage she's so fat. But cute!

It's been a long weekend.

Thursday didn't start off all that great.  I was sitting in bed, having my morning coffee, watching the news and BAM!  Fucking migraine starts.  Which is a total inconvenient time to get one considering I had parent teacher conferences that day.  I got up took some ibuprofen and drank like four cups of coffee (I have had these since I was a teen and the caffeine always seems to ease the pain of them) laid down, called in and put the pillow over my head.  This time it made me really queasy to my stomach, which I get with most of them but this lasted all day.  I relaxed until I had to get up and shower and go meet the teachers.

My sons conference:

The teacher absolutely LOVES him.  She said he is the cutest kid.  HE always listens and is trying really hard learning to read.  He is very strong in math.  He is a little below average in reading but is really working hard at learning.  She had my daughter in first grade and I really liked her then too.  She said when she started teaching first grade 20 years ago he would have been right where he is learning wise.  But seeing as how the school district insists on cramming endless amounts of information to first graders, it puts the regular kids in the below average category.  It is ridiculous.  She said they require her to get through so much stuff that she didn't even have time to go over science this quarter.  Her words exactly to me were "I really have know idea what grade I am teaching at the moment"  That is a sad statement.  Hey lets cut all the school funds down to the bare minimum and require that the kids need to learn more in a short amount of time.  I don't think this is working all that well, but then again, it's public school and it's free.  So unless I can start paying for private school I should probably shut up.

My daughters conference:

I walked into her beatnik teachers classroom and said hi I'm the girls mom.  He says where is the girl, I say at latchkey.  He says well this is a student led conference sooooo, HUH, what the hell is that?  I guess I will go get her.  So I go get her and we go back to the classroom where instead of the teacher going over her progress she goes over it.  OK look I don't want her opinion on how shes doing, I want yours.  She will tell me everything is rainbows and glitter, I WANT THE TRUTH.  Not the sugar coated version.  So after about 5 minutes another parent walks in.  With her kid.  Apparently this is going to be a group activity.  So he heads over to that parent, explains whats going on, and same deal.  So the girl goes over her report card, and other various crap he has in a folder for her.  And wait another parent comes in.  So as the girl is going over some stuff I am listening to the other conference going on.  The teacher is talking with the mom and the mom is telling him how she has a hard time getting her daughter to read every night.  Lady I feel your pain!  Come to think of it out of the four parents including myself, we all had that very same complaint.  I should have started a group discussion.  I really thought about it but seeing as how my stomach was turning in a bad direction I decided to keep my trap shut.  So the teacher after hoping from table to table, makes his way back to ours and says do you have any questions.  YES buddy I actually do.  After he informed me that she has to read 4 AR (accelerated reading) this quarter.  I was like OK what the hell are these books.  I looked up the website you gave me and it just basically lets me search titles to see if they are AR books or not.  I don't have time for this, I need a list, so I can go to the library, get a damn book and fight with her to read it over the next week and a half so she can do the stupid book report.  He gives me a list.  I said great can I keep this?  He says uh um, I was like OK so NO.  Can you just make a copy of this for me and send it home with her?  Yes I can do that.  Great thanks.  So after sitting there for another couple minutes, like what now?  Another parent walks in.  I was like hey, am I done here or what?  I guess I was.  So I went home.  That was the most fucked up cluster fuck of a conference I have ever been too.  I'm sorry that your trying something new here to take up less of your time, but this is your JOB, do it right!  She is doing fine by the way.

Friday at work was sooooo busy.  Huge copy project that had to be delivered to 2 different places out of town.  Menopausal minion went one way, was suppose to file it, bring it back for bipolar to go the other way and deliver it.  Sounds easy right......WRONG, menopausal forgot the check for the court, didn't answer her phone the 10 times we called, so guess who made a trip out of town.  ME!  Just to give her the stupid check because we were already way behind at this point.  So I get there give her the check and say give me one copy to take back to bipolar so when I get back she can be on her way.  I got back gave her the package sent her off and get a call.  "did you get my email?  UH NO bitch I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to clean up other peoples messes and now what the fuck do you want.  I have a delivery.  Of course you do.  Bring it down.  Um I don't have time to bring it down.  AAAAHHHHH, you people are killing me!  Seeing as how it was 4:15 and I get off at 4:30, I tell the receptionist that I am taking this delivery and going home.  Bipolar and menopausal minion are out of town, don't know when they will be back, and I don't really care.  If anyone is looking for someone, we are all gone and don't call me.  Have a nice weekend :)  I should have called in that day.

I got home and fell asleep on the couch at 7.  I know WTF?  7:00 thats totally pathetic.  I got up at 4:30 on Saturday morning.  That sucked but I got through a few DVR'd shows while everyone was still asleep, so that was kind of nice.  It was a beautiful day out yesterday.  We raked some leaves and hung out in the backyard enjoying the unusually warm day.  We met my mom for dinner, Italian, yumm, and pretty much just hung out and went to bed.  Nothing really all that exciting.  Just the way I like it.

So the time change has really got me all screwed up.  Here I thought I actually slept in, and no i really didn't.  I wish they would just leave it one stinking time.  Stop all this daylight savings bullshit.  I like it dark in the mornings, it helps me sleep.  I don't however like driving home at 4:30 in the afternoon in the dark.  Well I guess I better get up and clean the kitchen or something today, I don't want to feel like a complete loser just laying around all day.  But it is raining and crappy out and what better day to do that on!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Continued.......

Alrighty, where was I?  Oh yes, So right after the tour it was like 9:00, and you all know that's my bedtime (because I am a sad sad person)  We jumped in the truck and went back down the hill.  We could have stopped for some beers afterwards, but by then it's like the whole town shut down.  EVERYTHING was empty and closed.  So we went home and went to bed.  Pitiful huh.

On Sunday I figured while the boy was at my moms we could get the grocery shopping done without hearing "I want this" "can I get that" "I'm tired, are we done yet?"  This way I would only have to put up with the hubby's bitching.  Surprisingly, he didn't complain.......much!  Usually it's "Oh I need to get out of here"  "My knees hurt (limp limp)"  I actually got out of the store with minimal bitching.  I picked up some stuff to make a pot of chili, because it sounded good, plus it was cold and we had to do the dreaded trick or treating later that night.  The ex came over with his wife (who I actually like, I know it's a weird relationship) step daughter, my daughter (who dressed up as matching vampire princesses) and their 3 year old, and we all drove over to the nice neighborhood on the golf course and let the kids trick or treat.  It was kind of funny cause we stopped at the store, got some beers, loaded up the cooler and walked around with the kids while having a few drinks.  The guys got a few weird looks when the went up to the doors with the kids and beers in hand but whatever!  Mostly the people were watching the world series and looked annoyed when they opened the door.  Pause the fucking TV assholes, it's Halloween, if you don't want to deal with it, shut off the god damn porch light!  The kids had fun, we tried to make it quick cause it was freezing out, but they did pretty well in the candy department.

Last night we had family movie night.  I know, I know, whatever to get the kids to shut the fuck up, I am willing to do.  I ordered Toy Story 3 from Netflix and we used the monstrosity of a popcorn maker my wonderful mother in law got for my daughter for her birthday, (thanks bitch) and we all sat down and were quiet for 2 hours.  It was heaven!  The movie was really cute though, I did enjoy it very much.

Still working on my coughing abs routine.......going to the gym last night didn't make it any better, I was hacking all over the elliptical machine while using it.  Hey I figure it this way I was doing 2 exercises at once.  Go Me!  Plus I think if I actually stopped smoking for a couple of days, it might get better, but I don't have the will power :) 

HAPPY FUCKING HUMP DAY!
P.S.  It's parent teacher conferences tomorrow afternoon, I should have plenty to say after that fiasco!

Ghost Hunting!

So on Saturday we did our ghost tour of the old hospital.  OK well first let me back the truck up.  After resting most of Saturday, so I could still go to this thing because I was not about to lose $60.00, We went up to VC early to eat dinner at my favorite place.  This is the first time the hubby has been there.  He really enjoyed it.  He says now I know why you want to eat here, it's great.  So after dinner we had about an hour to kill before the tour.  We decided to go have some beers at one of the bars up there.  We walked into the Bucket of Blood saloon.  Which for some reason he was intent on going to.  Holy shit, I think everyone in Virginia City was in that bar.  We walked in and walked right out.  To many red necks packed into one place.  So we went across the street to another bar.  Had a few beers and went to the tour.  It was SUPER creepy driving up to the place.  I swear this city doesn't believe in street lights.  So we milled around till the tour started.  Then a ghost hunter guy gave us the tour with that K2 meter thing.  I didn't have any weird uneasy feelings during the whole thing.  A few people had developed headaches, but that was about it.  The only REALLY weird thing that I thought happened was when we were in the morgue, he set the meter on the table and it did nothing for like 5 minutes.  Then all of the sudden the thing lite up to red and stayed like that for a few.  Then it started pulsing like a heart beat.  Really weird.  One funny thing happened though, my Friend was holding the meter and was like this things going off, we all turned and was like your standing next to a big electrical box!

Well the boss is in and I'm up at the front desk today, so I will give you more Halloween madness tomorrow!

Kicked Out!

I was kicked out of work yesterday.  Geez, everyones a germ a phobe at my office.  They cant handle a little coughing, or snot.  What the hell.  I was told "GET OUT" when I delivered something to one of my co workers office.  Whatever though, I really didnt want to be there, nor did they want me there so I left.  Thank you menopausal minion for picking up the slack for me.  I promise to not talk shit about you for at least one week!  So after I was asked to leave for the umpteenth time, I left.  Went straight to Wal Greens, picked up Robitussin, nose spray, alkaseltzer plus, and went home.  Drank the nasty stuff (which didn't work by the way) took the cough medicine (that didn't work either) sprayed my nose, aaahhhhh sweet relief! The only thing that worked.

I promised the boy on Wednesday night if he would just eat the spaghetti I made I would take him out to where ever he wanted to eat on Thursday.  I picked him up and asked what do you want to eat.  He says nothing because of course he just had a Halloween party, and ate a bunch of shit for the last 2 hours.  I was like fine were going home.  I texted the hubby and said pick something up on your way home.  Well apparently he didn't get that message because he came home with nothing.  He says well theres some boneless wings I brought from lunch eat those.  OK yes I want your leftovers that were probably in your car for the last 4 hours, can you say e coli!  But to hell with food poisoning I'm hungry and not in the mood so fuck it I ate them.  I also ended up eating the hubby special again.  Grilled cheese.

So we are suppose to go on that ghost tour tomorrow night.  He says how are you going to go if your sick?  I'm like I don't care if I have to drug myself into a semi coma like state, I'm going.  He says no you better stay home and I'll have fun with the girls.  We are going with my friend and her daughter and I think her cousin.  Yeah, I don't think so.

Well shit, my son seems to be coughing now.  Great, now he's sick and this should make trick or treating fun.  One good thing I noticed, my abs a super sore from coughing so much.  Maybe I can get some of that mommy pooch to go away with this cold. 

Happy Friday, and Happy NV Day for you Nevadans that read this.  Have a great day off.  I'll be resting in bed all day!

I Spoke to Soon!

Yes, I sure as fuck did.  Oh NO, I'm not getting sick, I feel better today.  It's just a cough.  MY ASS!  It has turned into full blown snotfest.  Last night about 8 while watching the world series with the hubby (I'll get to that little tid bit later) the nose started to clog and the cough started to come on with a vengeance.  I decided to take some cold meds, but they did not help.  I spent the entire night tossing and turning trying to get the clogged side of my nose to drain to the other side (you know what I'm talking about) Then I just loved waking up from a dead sleep to have snot running out of my nose like a faucet.  The tissues were in my sons room and I was to lazy to get up and used a piece of toilet paper I had gotten earlier.  Well at some point I was scrambling for the tissue and last time I had used it I guess I didn't hit the dresser trying to put it back.  It fell on the floor, so of course I'm stretching halfway off the bed searching the floor for it, finding it had landed on the dog bed and it was stuck under the dogs ass.  After finally retrieving the toilet paper and to lazy to get another one, I used it and ended up with dog hair up my nose.  Of course I cant call in sick today, because Bipolar BITCH, decided she needed today off.  FUCKING BITCH!  So I turned my purse into a tissue box and went on my way.  I love Vicks Puffs tissues.  I just want to wad them up and shove them up my nose and breath the sweet aroma of menthol.  Hey that's not a bad idea.  Someone needs to invent the "Nosepon" Complete with menthol relief!

So I love watching sports with the hubby.  It is so entertaining to hear him yelling at the TV.  He is rooting for the Giants but still is like yelling at the Rangers pitchers for pitching good pitches ( I mean come on pick a side already).  I don't get it.  It is comical though.  So the last inning we decide to head to our room to watch some shit we have recorded.  He says I don't need to watch the last couple plays, I know the giants are going to win.  OK, whatever you can watch it if you want, I mean we have already watched the entire game why not finish it?  So he starts the show, stops it 2 minutes later and says I just want to see if it's over yet.  Check the game, starts the show, repeat, like 3 times.  I'm like just leave the fucking game on till its over please.  Stop this madness.  Finally got to finish the show we started after like a half hour.

Yesterday one of the Attorneys I work for (there's like 15 of them)  started talking about Sharon Angle (and how much we HATE that psycho BITCH).  And he tried to make a joke about her not having a "wiener" but what was funny about it was he said it so quiet like he was a little kid, made it all the more funny.  Plus he says I saw your friend Carol today.  I was like Carol, Carol, Oh you mean Boobs?  The look on his face was priceless when I said that.  He said at the bank.  I was like yeah Boobs, that's what we call her because she has huge fake knockers.  HAHAHA, I can imagine him going in there now totally starring at her chest after I said that.  Even my hubby has her in his phone as Boobs!  I have ruined his banking experience, or I might have just made it a little more pleasurable!  :)

COUGH!

So, I figured this morning I would wake up with a nice case of bronchitis.  Well so far nothing.  I guess this could be chalked up to a good thing, the chest yuckiness has gone away, but still coughing up some not so nice stuff.  And I can still breath out of my nose....thank god for that.  So I'm wondering what the hell is wrong with me?  I feel OK, but this cough will not stop.  I actually slept great, didn't cough once until I got out of bed this morning?  Puzzling.  I was going to call the doctor today, but considering I have nothing green oozing from my nose it would be a waste of time and I wouldn't get anything but nasty cough medicine, and probably be told I have some virus.  So therefore I am saving my co pay and riding it out. 

I went home last night with a monster headache from coughing all day.  About an hour before I left work I decided that I would call my grandma to see if she could keep the girl for the night so I could just go home and lay my ass out on the couch in peace without having to yell at the kids every five minutes for picking on each other.  I am glad I did.  It was nice and quiet.  The hubby even made dinner for us.  It was grilled cheese, but still, I just put on my jammies at 5 and huddled under a blanket till I went to bed.  I expecting I was probably going to call in sick today, but since I feel OK, I might as well go. 

Bipolar minion came in first thing this morning complaining about she might have pink eye.  I turned and said to her "you know they sell drops over the counter now for that"  In other words quit your bitching, get some drops, and get back to work.  I'm coughing up a lung here and you still see my ass coming to work EVERYDAY!  At least the boss is gone today.  My biggest decision of the day is going to be what the hell am I going to eat for lunch!  Soup sounds good, maybe some Pho, but that would mean I have to leave my desk heater to go get it.  I'm not sure if I'm willing to do that at this very moment.  It's freezing out there.

So my grandma calls me this morning and says "you picked a great time to get sick,"  "I had to help your daughter make dough and mold it into the shape of NV."  Oh yeah I knew about that and was going to have her do that tonight.  But she read the paper wrong and thought it was due today, so they spent the evening doing most of it last night.  AWESOME, I'm glad to have escaped that nightmare worthless project.  I mean COME ON, do we really have to make this shit.  Cant we draw the state and color it in or something.  Do we really have to go to the extreme of making this crap and molding it, then paint it.  Just for her to get a grade on it, then I chuck it in the trash because it starts to crumble and make a mess when I shove it in the closet and forget about it till I have to clean up the mess because she was rummaging around in her closet and it fell on the floor.  See all sorts of scenarios for this thing that is going to require me to clean.  Thanks you worthless elementary schools, I cant wait till the science fair this spring when I am going to have to do her project for her, like I don't have enough to do with all the homework, reading, WORKING, cooking cleaning, being a taxi cab, changing channels, laundry.  NNNNOOOOO, I think I could find some spare time in my life to do her fucking science fair project too!  Hey here's and IDEA, why don't you start giving them stuff that's on their level that they could do in class.  So I could maybe come home after work and hang out with the kids, not scream at them every night because they need to do homework that they don't want to do and I don't understand.  OK I'm done ranting about school now.  Sorry, it just really irks me.

POOOO!

Ugh, I'm sick.  I went to bed last night perfectly fine, well I had a tickle in my chest (like I smoked to much) and woke up with a nasty cough.  I hate being sick.  As the day wears on I am progressively feeling more shitty.  This is not the week I needed this.  I made plans this weekend, fun plans, plans that I talked the hubby into doing with me, plans that costed me $60.00, plans that is going to get me dinner at one of my favorite restaurants.  What are these plans you ask?  I will tell you.  My friend messaged me a couple of weeks ago about going on a ghost tour in Virginia City.  I was like hell yeah, I wanna go.  Sounds like fun.  Plus I have been wanting to do something like that for a while now.  Anyways, I told the hubby that I was going this Saturday.  Being Halloween and all makes it even more spooky and fun.  I asked if he wanted to go with me.  I said yeah, you should come, and we could hit Cafe Del Rio (Favorite place to eat there) and then mill around for a while till the tour starts at 8.  He was like OK.  So we make plans to buy tickets online this morning.  I called her and we start checkout at the same time to ensure we both get tickets.  CRAP, the 8:00 one is sold out.  Damn it.  So OK we will do the 6:00 one.  Wouldn't you know it, there was only 1 ticket left, and considering there are 4 of us going that's not going to work.  So I say maybe next year.  Hang up and go to the insurance meeting for the next half hour at work.  Then I get a note to call curly ASAP.  HHHMMM, maybe she came up with some tickets.  I call and she says why don't we do the other tour.  OK here is the other tour, Instead of walking around town in the dark, visiting places that are supposedly haunted and the cemetery (boot hill, you all have heard of that) which I am totally fine with.  This tour is at the old scary St. Mary Louise Hospital.  Supposedly REALLY haunted.  It's an art school now, but was a hospital in the 1800's.  OMG, I am such a chicken shit, but I agreed.  This is going to scare the pants off me I just know it.  Then again, nothing could happen and I will be fine, but you never know about these things.  I will give you a full report Monday.

Rainy Day's

Friday, I was so busy I literally went home and fell face down on my couch!  I was so tired and was glad as hell to go home.  The hubby asked what I wanted to do about dinner, and my answer was I'm not cooking or going anywhere to get anything so whatever you come up with that delivers, I'm good with it.  So pizza it was.  I talked him into a buffalo wing pizza from Straw Hat.  I have been wanting to try it for some time now but just wasn't sure how it was going to taste.  Surprisingly, it was pretty great.  It even had celery pieces on it.  That is one I will be getting again.

Saturday, we hit Costco to get something to take to the Halloween party we were invited to that night.  We found some spinach and artichoke filled cheesy philo dough thingy.  Costco was a nightmare mad house Saturday afternoon, but did manage to get out of there under a hundred bucks.  We went to the party, which I think we knew about 4-5 people at it.  The kids carved pumpkins, well no, I take that back, the kids lost interest in carving pumpkins, so the adults carved them.  Then we were home by 8:30.  Party animals I know.  I think I was a sleep on the couch by 9:15 and finally drug my ass to bed about 10. 

Sunday, I pretty much did NOTHING.  It was great.  I slept till 8 when the boy woke me up.  It rained all flipping day yesterday.  And hard too.  It was like a friggin monsoon blew through here with all the wind.  After watching the race with the hubby I managed to take a shower in the late afternoon, and then caught up on some shows I've had DVRed for a while now.  I finally got through everything just in time for this weeks shit to record.  We decided to try out the new popcorn maker last night that the girl got for her Birthday.  It was pretty cool, the kids thought it was great to see the popcorn pop out of the thing.  Just like the one at the movies only smaller.  So now the girl has said we need to start having movie night with popcorn, and I need to make sure it's a movie we can all watch......YES DEAR!

I came to work today to find that Bipolar minion has called in sick.  I guess she couldn't handle how busy it was on Friday and thought she would take an extra day.  I am sick of it.  I finally went to my boss and said this is getting ridiculous.  Does she feel the need to use every single second of her sick time?  There are plenty of people out there who don't have jobs that are willing to show up everyday.  I have had enough.  So will see what happens.  My guess is nothing.  UGH!  Well at least it's only a 4 day week this week.  Thank you NV for becoming a state on Halloween and getting us a Holiday!

Sorry it's been a while!

I have been crazy busy at work this week.  You would think everything possible that could be due, is due today.  Plus dealing with all the crazy cyber stalker, has not left a whole lot of time for anything.

Yesterday was the girls actual birthday.  She also had a choir thing for the Lyons club, last night.  They sang 3 songs, thank god it was short because every parent that showed up had to stand in the back of the room to watch.  The kids did pretty well though.  My mother in law decided to drop off her gift this morning.  She got her one of those popcorn makers like the really expensive ones you see form Costco.  What the fuck is she going to do with that?  What the fuck am I going to do with it.  We live in the age of nukable popcorn.  we don't need this crazy gadget.  And I have no where to store it.

We are going to a Halloween party tomorrow night.  Should be fun.  Thank god we don't have to dress up.  My hubby was all excited at the fact that we might dress up, because we were at the spirit store on Sunday and he saw all the slut costumes.  It was just an excuse to get me to dress slutty.  Hey whatever floats your boat dude.  But it's nice of him to still think of me as sexy.

Well this is going to be short, got to get back to the day from hell.  Happy reading auntie, I posted a quickie just for you!

Jesus!

I have met some crazy people in my life, but this one took the cake.  Remember I was telling you all about the psycho bitch that cant handle the fact that I am friends with her boyfriend.  Well it all came to a serious head on Friday night.  I don't know how many times I had to block her and all her other accounts.  And I continually asked her to stop contacting me.  At one point I even said fine, I hope you two a very happy, now leave me alone.  Then I noticed I was getting messages with my picture and my name (spelled wrong of course)  That bitch had made up a fake profile with my personal (address, phone numbers) info on it.  Started sending friend requests to everyone.  Put me on dating sites and linked me to porn shit.   Dude, this got way out of hand really fast.  I wouldn't care so much if I didn't have kids in the house.  I can handle myself.  And the hubby is big and scary anyways.  So after repeatedly reporting the page, everyone and flagging everything, do you think facebook did anything about it?  NO, of course not.  How many times do you need to hit that fucking button before the page is taken down.  This is my personal shit here people.  Get you shit together.  So anyways, thanks to my dear friends that took screen shots and copies of everything for me. I had my ammo.  I sent him an email saying if she didn't take it down I was filing a police report.  I get a response of DO IT, shes crazy.  He was nice enough to give me her address and number.  I mean come on she lives like 2000 miles away.  It's not like we live in the same town.  So I went and filed a report.  Then a restraining order just to make a point.  Not that I felt I needed one but you know better safe then sorry.  So the cop who was super nice called her, and of course she didn't answer.  He left her a nice little message to contact him.  OK, so to take matters further I posted that a police report was filed on my friends wall (cause I know shes reading it)  All of a sudden, right after that, my pictures disappeared off the fake site.  Then she posts who ever is doing this the police are now involved, please stop.  Yeah right we all know it's you I have proof. and now the cops have it.  So anyways this morning I check it again.  Still there.  Damn it.  So I post again on my friends wall.  A restraining order has been served to facebook and she should be receiving hers any day now.  My friend calls like and hour later and says I think it's gone.  Poof, just like that, the word restraining order did it.  Lesson learned on my end, and I hope on her end that cyber bullying is not OK.  There are kids out there killing themselves over this shit and it should be stopped.  I am 32 years old and totally embarrassed to have to tell anyone about this.  But for all those girls out there that are having it done to them or doing it to someone.  It's NOT OK.  You may have a set of balls behind a computer, but these are peoples lives that are in danger.  There should be better ways of handling this stuff.  Believe me I looked and there is NO WHERE to report anything too.  I spent all weekend on this.  You cant even find a link on facebooks page to directly report it.  Something needs to be done about this.  OK done with my soap box rant.  Tell me what you think about this, I am curious!

Stalker!

Well the crazy lady hasn't gone away.  She has resorted to using her 10 year olds facebook account so send me and email.  I wrote only one reply back to the effect of I know it's you, what ever problems your having in your relationship doesnt concern me, and you only have yourselves to blame.  Please do not email me any further.  Then I blocked her sons account.  Dude I cant handle this crazy bullshit.  People really need to stop being so fucking insecure.  Not my fault you two aren't getting along.  I live 2000 miles away, blame somebody else.  I talk to him maybe, once every couple months, and its hey how are you and that's pretty much it.  Hopefully she got the message.

We went and got the girl her bike and a new helmet last night.  I put it in her room, so when she gets home there will be a surprise waiting for her.  I really hope she likes it.  It took forever for us to pick out.  And OMG!  I didn't realize helmets were that expensive, even at Wal-Mart.  Oh well.

On to the party tomorrow.  It's suppose to be a nice day, which is good.  Then Sunday suppose to be really shitty again.  I cant wait till all these birthdays are over.  2 down 2 more to go, then Christmas.  UGH, I dont even want to think about Christmas.

Have a good weekend all!

OMG!

I think I have just been time warped back into high school.  And I have been attacked by one of those girls accusing me of trying to steal their boyfriends.  Yes it's true....me of all people.  This morning I decided to find out how my friend was doing on facebook.  I wrote on his wall "hey, it's been a while, how goes it?"  The response I get was not one I was expecting.  His girlfriend writes back "he's at home with his family, stop beating a dead horse"  Of fuck NO,  you didn't.  So it was on from there.  I did call him to tell him what a pshyco I thought his girlfriend was and he was laughing.  Dude, I finally ended with I am not going to be drawn into high school drama so FUCK OFF!  She must have got the message cause I haven't heard back.  I am in no way shape or form after any ones man.  We dated in like Jr. High a million years ago.  He found me on facebook 5 years ago and we have just been friends.  When he came to town a few years ago we got together with another friend of ours and went to lunch.  He came to town for a wedding last month and we got together for lunch again.  GEEZ, some chicks are insane.  My hubby knew about it.  Not a big deal.

So my ass REALLY hurts.  My son wanted to go on a bike ride last night with his dad.  Hubby asks do you want me to get your bike out of the shed and you can go with us.  Sure I said sounds like fun.  I haven't rode my bike in 8 years, but you know what they say it's like riding a bike you never forget....haha!  It was really a nice ride though.  Now I need to get a cushier seat if we are going to be doing this in the future.  We went through the park by our house like 7 time and my son did great on his new bike.  Now it's off to get my daughter one for her birthday tonight.  She will be so surprised tomorrow.

You know I love October, but I am a little dissapointed this year.  October is all about the Halloween fun.  I look forward to all the ghost shows and scary stories that they air on TV this month.  There has been absolutely NOTHING.  Aside from Ghost Hunters which airs every week, I got NOTHING.  BOO.  Hopefully it will pick up during next week.    :(

Great!

I got a call from my daughters teacher yesterday afternoon.  Nope not good at all.  He says she has been messing around while they are suppose to be reading in class (Not my daughter!) Surprise surprise.  He should come to the house when it's homework time.  And she failed the test they had on the book that they were reading.  Then proceeds to tell me that the rocket math they are doing (one minute timed tests with 50 problems they are suppose to be able to complete)  I cant even do it in one minute (believe me I tried it last night).  This is wearing on me and her both.  I really hated school when I was going and now I hate it even more now that my kids are going.  What the hell is going on with the education system?  When a parent has to google the answers for the kids homework because nobody can figure it out, I find something to be really wrong with that situation.  Maybe I am just stupid, along with my hubby, who I thought was pretty smart.  Either way she's in fourth grade and learning shit that I was learning in Jr. High.  I am sick of yelling (that doesn't help) I am sick of fighting, crying fits, and hours upon hours of dreaded homework.  Because of lack of funding (another shocker) the don't have the after school tutoring program this year.  (thanks you fucking Republicans)  And no I am not turning this into a political debate, but the Governor in office for our state at the moment has totally fucked everything over.  I am at a loss here.  Maybe she just isn't good at math, is that such a bad thing.  At least she can finish half the test.  And if she gets one more than the last test, I call that progress.  Maybe she's bored.  She has a very high reading comprehension level for her age. (she didn't get that from me) And was reading at a very early age.  She aces all the state mandated tests, so we all know that's her strong point, but Jesus, they are relentless on this math crap.  If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.  We have done flash cards, some music CD thing her teacher made her, at home testing, nothing is working.  I'm just short of telling the teacher to move on, she's never going to pass the test in one minute, get over it!  Trust me this has been an ongoing 3 year battle with this rocket math bullshit.

OK I am done complaining for the moment.  So I was at the gym last night, on the evil elliptical machine, when I notice this lady in front of me on the treadmill.  I am guessing she was probably in her late 30's early 40's.  I don't typically notice people at the gym, just there to do my thing and get the hell out, but what made me notice her was her outfit.  She was just wearing a workout outfit, spandex Capri's, and like a matching halter top thing.  So anyways my point being is I couldn't help staring at her ass.  She had the nicest ass I have ever seen.  No I am not a lesbian but can appreciate a nice ass when I see one.  Typically it's on a guy.  For the 20 minutes I was on that thing I kept trying to watch the TV over her head but found my eyes wondering to her ass over and over again.  Then I thought, I want her ass, so I stepped up my workout adding a little resistance to make it a little harder.  Well I guess one good thing came out of that, made me workout a little harder then usual.  But with my crappy genetics, I am doomed to have a big ass forever.

Well thats it for now, HAPPY HUMP DAY!

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

hhhmmmmmm!

Oh here is something funny as hell. I just talked to the hubby, since taking the boy out on a bike ride last Sunday he informs me his ass still hurts from his bike seat. Well if the seat wasn't the actual size of your ass crack maybe it wouldn't be a problem. (it's one of those seats that are just there for decoration, so you dont stab your balls going over a bump, not one anyone in their right mind would try and sit on) I swear 6 years ago he decides he wants this bike. It's the size a 13 and up kid would ride. I say isn't that a little small for you? He says no, it's for racing. I'm like yeah, your gonna race? (he did this as a kid and teenager) (he must be trying to relive his youth) (the only thing he's going to end up with is a broken something) He says they have an "old guy team" Oh sweet lord to see the old fat guys riding clown bikes around a track doesn't even begin to describe the hilarity of the situation. Well here we are 6 years later and $800.00 for the bike, and it's basically been siting in the shed collecting dust. So I say maybe you need a biger seat for the bigger ass. Like one of those boing boing seats that you would find on a beach cruiser. NO, now it's I need a bigger bike. HAHA, he needs an old guy bike. I say why dont you see if Dan (the bike shop owner and one of his previous racing buddies from the past that is like 300 pounds and races on the old guy team) will buy the bike back and get a bigger one with a bigger seat? Oh NO, that wont do because in his mind he still "might" want to race someday. OY, give it up, the only thing you need to be doing is taking a weekend cruise to the park with your kid!


So my step son sent me a friend request on facebook last night......what to do, what to do?  Do I really want him knowing all my business?  Do I accept and be nosey on whats going on with him?  I decided this morning that OK, I will accept.  Even though I could read all of his postings anyways, because he doesn't have the privacy settings set up right.  So, I check out his page.  I see a post from his "new" girlfriend, saying something about how she loves him and is so excited about August 16, 2011.  Curious!  Well it could be one of two things I figure.  They are either planning on getting married, or he knocked her up.  Either way, NOT GOOD.  At least he is 18 (going on 12.)  I just hope that it is marriage, that way in about 6 months when they break up, it will be no big deal.  Not like having a kid, when your in and out of jail, no job, and basically a loser. Then your stuck with your mistake for the rest of your life.   But for some reason I still have a little hope that he will get his head out of his ass and do the right thing.  He is a smart kid and I actually like him.  Unlike the OTHER one!

The kids are driving me nuts this week.  I still haven't sent out invitations to their party Saturday (I know I suck) So I ended up texting everyone (I know tacky, but it was getting late) So I told them they could invite 1 friend from school.  My daughter had trouble deciding which one, but finally got one written out.  And my son wanted one of our friends sons to come so I shot her and email this morning.  I love technology!  I think the girl is PMSing, she just cant shut her mouth.  Nit picking everything the boy does.  UGH, CALGON, TAKE ME AWAY!  I was all to happy to get them dropped off this morning at school.

Bipolar minion has been on my last nerve already this week.  She got pissed cause I made her do all of what, 2 errands yesterday morning, while I took the other one to Costco with me, so we could get all the sodas and crap for the NV day party my company is throwing at the end of the month.  Then informs me she is taking the 28th off.  Really I say, I didn't see a vacation request form on my desk.  She says I gave it to "my boss"  which it's suppose to go to me first, when I sign off on it then I give it to my boss to sign off on.

Lovely Weekend!

I actually had a really nice weekend.  My son loved his bike we got him for his birthday, and we ended up at McDonald's at the play land for 2 hours.  But he had fun and that's all that matters.

On Saturday me, the boy, mom and my brother and his family went to apple hill for the day.  I found my hubby a sugarless apple pie and we had lunch at the first place we stopped.  OH yummy meat.  Since the hubby was at home I had a huge hamburger.  It was soooo delicious.  We got some pumpkins, and fed some animals.  Then we went and picked some apples from one of the orchards.  My son thought this was the coolest thing.

Sunday we took him out to ride his new bike.  It is a little big, but once he gets going he loves it.  He is starting to get a cold though, (I was hoping he was sick enough not to have to come to work today, damn the bad luck)  Dad took him on a bike ride to the park last night.  He really loved that.  He keeps saying I cant believe I can ride a two wheeler now!

Now I need to find my daughter a bike for her birthday next week.  I hope the boy gets better, cause the kids are having a swimming party this Saturday.  I hope we don't have to cancel.  I guess I just keep feeding him the cold meds and hope it goes away.

Well happy crappy Monday All!

Happy Birthday!

Today is my little mans birthday, he is officially 7 years old.  What a big boy!  I am wondering, since he's 7 now, if he will decide that it would be OK to wipe his own butt, get his own juice, and change his own channel.  HA, not gonna happen.  His dad tells me last night after the umpteenth time he called me to change the channel, that he's jealous (while snickering the whole time) that he loves me more then him, because he ALWAYS calls me to do his bidding.  I said I would gladly trade places with him.  I could use a little less love at the moment.  JERK.

So in true kid fashion, I was running my ASS off this morning once again.  Last night when I picked him up, he tells me that they are having a party in class today.  I said oh how fun and it will be your birthday too.  What a treat.  I ask, do I need to bring anything?  He says NO.  I say are your sure?  He says YES.  So then this morning while we are getting ready (this must have slipped his mind obviously) he says, my teacher told everyone not to bring snacks today because it's my birthday and I'm bringing snacks for the whole class.  WHOA, what?  I love how the teacher assumes I am one of THOSE parents.  But, now I'm stuck, so with 20 minutes before he needs to be at school, I race to the store to get some cookies.  I was going to make him some birthday pancakes this morning, but due to the change of events, he got a birthday doughnut from the store instead.  And once again I was left slamming down a half toasted piece of bread on the way to school.

I asked him last night what he wanted for his birthday dinner tonight, and he says after mulling it over for a few, that he wants McDonald's (shocking) or pizza "cause it's cheap"  I said it's OK honey we can have whatever you want, don't worry about the price.  It was pretty cute.

Well happy Friday everyone, have a good weekend!

Thursday, October 7, 2010

Well....

Bipolar minion decided to show up today.  I figured she would just take the rest of the week off, but shockingly I was wrong.  Hopefully today goes by somewhat fast, I am really ready to sleep in on Saturday morning.  but I am sure I'll be up at 6 like usual.

Tomorrow is my little mans 7th birthday.  I cant believe he is going to be 7.  Where did the time go?  It just seems like yesterday he was keeping me up every 2 hours to eat.  We are going to do a little cake and presents and told him we could have what ever he wanted for dinner. (oy, McDonald's again)  We got him a new bike, and some tek deck skateboards.  We will be having a "family party" for him and my daughter next Saturday (her birthday is on the 21st)  I still don't know what the hell to get for my daughter.  she will be 10, that's a hard age.  Not really into toys, but not really into clothes.  So I'm at a loss.  Maybe I will get her a new bike as well.  Then it will give us an excuse to go out so they can ride and the poor dog can get a walk.

Last night I made one of the biggest bone head moves ever.  I fried my 3 fingers.  I was making scalloped potatoes with dinner.  I boiled the water on the stove, poured it into the dish, put it in the oven.  Put the pot back on the rack, and unloaded the dishwasher.  What I didn't realize was while I was unloading, I set the plates on the stove top right where I just boiled the water (its a glass top in case your wondering)  So when I went to grab the plates........OOOOOOWWWWW.  I burnt the tips of my fingers.  It FUCKING hurts!  So instead of the idiot hubby asking if I was OK and what happened, he says good job stupid!  HA, jokes on you ass cause now you have to do the dishes, considering I am now hurt!

We are traveling over to Apple Hill this weekend with the family.  Its a really cool place to get some great pie and crafts and crap like that.  Should be fun.  Maybe the kids can get a few pumpkins while where there.  We kind of jipped them last year.  We got some pumpkins and didn't carve them.  I forgot why we didn't get around to it, but I will make sure they get to do it this year. 

We watched Prince of Persia last night.  I cant believe both the kids actually sat through the whole thing.  It was OK, seeing Jake Gillynhalls abs was just worth watching the movie period.  Well almost time to go back to work :(  YAY, only 2 more days!

CRAZY!

Everything has been crazy last night and this morning.  And yesterday afternoon as a matter of fact.

First lets start off with the minion report.  I have been gone and surprised to come back to find that they didn't kill each other.  Everything seemed good, no bitching, then the big shit bomb dropped yesterday afternoon.  Bipolar minion has a problem with going to the same place more then once.  She makes menopausal minion do the shit she doesn't want to do.  Menopausal minion finally got tired of it and told her NO.  Then came running to me pitching a fit.  Bipolar minion had to go to the court house 3 times yesterday (OH NO)  hence this pissed her off, and she decides to call in sick this morning.  I told menopausal minion that I would have a meeting with them this morning because they needed to have it out, and that I was going to write up and actual schedule for both of them so that there is no confusion on who does what at what time and when.  I have had it with both of them.  Now her calling in sick pisses me off.  UGH more children to deal with, Ive had it.

Last night I got the kids and dropped them off at home, told the girl to do her homework and went to the gym.  I get back to no homework done and a lot of complaining.  After 2 1/2 hours of yelling and ready to blow my head off, she finally finished the 2 sheets of math she had, then it was on to the fucking crossword puzzle.  And of course it was all due today!  The hubby and myself spent half an hour googling the answers.  Ridiculous for a 4th grader that we couldn't even do her homework.  At 8:30 she got in the shower and told me she conveniently forgot her book she was suppose to read (of course she did)  Then she went to bed.  All to run my ass around AGAIN this morning. 

Today is picture day.  So her hair had to be done.  I was a little slow going this morning, but she did manage to get ready fairly early.  As I was almost finished curling her hair she reminds me she has choir.  FUCK, she had to be at school in 5 minutes.  The boy wasn't done eating so the hubby was home today I said I would be right back.  Ran her to school, came back grabbed the boy and went back to school, all the while cramming a piece of half toasted bread down my throat while driving.

I need a break soon!  AGAIN!

Oh yeah and we had some crazy thunderstorms last night.  The thunder woke me up at 1 it was so loud.  It was really cool though, havent had one like that in forever!
