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!

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!

Made it back!

We made it back safe and sound.  Boo, I really wish it could have been longer, but I guess I had to come home sometime!  We had a really good time, and my feet hurt still from all the walking we did.  We got to Vallejo around noon on Saturday.  It worked out perfect because 6 flags opened right at noon.  We got lucky and snagged the shuttle over right away after we got our tickets from the hotel.  The park was nice, the weather was 85ish and there were hardly any lines to stand in.  We hung around till about 3 and decided to go back to the hotel to check in and get some lunch.  Fortunately for us they had built a big shopping center 5 minutes away with lots of restaurants.  Last time I was there there was only a Denny's in the vicinity.  We chose the Olive Garden.  It was so good and we got there early enough (senior time) we didn't have to wait for a table.  After dinner we went back to the park and rode the rides we didn't get a chance to get on.  We road everything and got on our favorites twice.  The hubby is really afraid of heights, so this one ride (my favorite) I had to talk him into getting on.  It was pretty funny cause he was screaming like a bitch, with his eyes closed, and told me he would never get on it again!

Sunday we got up early to catch our ferry over to San Francisco.  It was a little cold and overcast that day but the sun was in and out and it warmed up a bit.  My hubby who decoded it would be a great idea to only pack shorts and tee shirts, with no jacket (I told him) ended up running around tyring to find a hoodie big enough to fit him at one of the shops on pier 39.  Finally after like a hour he settled on one.  Then we were off to Alcatraz.  Holy crap it was crowded.  I enjoyed the tour but the amount of people all milling around taking the same audio tour made it difficult to say the least.  I mean instead of parking your ass in front of a display for like a hour, look and move on.  So that kind of sucked.  We ate lunch at some sourdough factory and I had my soup in a bread bowl.  Aaahhh  it was so good.  Then we went walking around to just about everywhere.  Of course he spotted a hooters and we had to go in for a beer. We saw this segway tour of the city I want to do if we ever go again.  It looked like a lot of fun.  We made it back on the 6:00 ferry and hit the hot time to relax our muscles.

Monday we drove home.  To rain.  And cold :(  I think winter is finally upon us.  I was so tired yesterday I think I took like 3 naps, in and out all afternoon.  Then picked up the kids from school and ate dinner and fell asleep on the couch at 6.  He woke me up and said go to bed at 7:30.  I went and watched some TV for an hour and went to bed.  God it feels like I had mono or something yesterday, but maybe it was because I had so much fun.

Well the boss has been hanging around so going to make this short.  More tomorrow!

Not much to tell.

Well there is not much to report today, except the fact that I wish this day was over already and it was tomorrow.  I have most of the laundry done and just need to get us and the boy packed up for the weekend.  So in order to fill some space I'll tell you some fun facts about me that you didn't know, well most of you didn't know.

Fact 1:
I got married when I was 18 to my first husband (NO, I was NOT pregnant.)  He was in the Army, and just got out of basic training and was to be stationed at Ft Knox.  Of all the places.  This is the reason I lived on the east coast for about a year and a half.  Oh what an experience that was.  Talk about having to grow up super fast.  It was a good life lesson I think.  And probably the reason why I am so addicted to the show army wives, cause I used to be one!

Fact 2:
Since we are on the subject of husbands, I met my current one at work.  (No, we did not work together, well, kind of)  He was our messenger and stopped in twice a day.  Used to flirt with me soooo much.  But I thought he was to old for me.  Eventually he wore me down.  And it helped that I was going through my divorce at the time (CHEATING FUCKER) and wanted revenge.  They worked together (the ex and current hubby) and I thought it would be a nice fuck you to my ex to date one of his co workers.  So I asked him out. and here we are.  It took me 5 years, one kid, a house and a dog to finally give up and agree to marry him.  He asked me years before.  I was kind of put off by marriage (seeing as how the other one didn't end well), but decided I had waited long enough and gave in.  And now we are happy as a clam 9 years later, well most of the time anyways.

Fact 3:
I have a sick addiction to reality TV, (you probably figured that one out already) And just about anything that's on I will watch! (couch potato)

Fact 4:
I really don't like kids.  I love my own, but pretty much cant stand other peoples children.  This is the reason I don't ask any of my friends (unless it's an emergency) to watch my kids.  I don't wanna watch yours in return.  I'm am so not one of those play date mommy's, and could care less if their friends never ever come over.  I know this is a pipe dream on my part, and I will have to deal with it soon enough, but I am not going out of my way to make it happen.  I am probably the type of person who shouldn't have kids because I am kind of selfish (OK a lot selfish).  After my daughter, I wasn't planning on having anymore.  I was OK with her being an only child.  But then fate intervened, and I popped out my son.  I love them more then anything, and glad I have them, but don't think being a mom is the best most fulfilling thing in the world.  But then again, what would I do without them?  OH Yeah, have more money, not have to yell so much, not have to relive elementary, Jr. high, and high school homework, have a flat stomach without stretchmarks (my son did a number on me)  Oh, what could have been.

Fact 5:
People think I am a huge bitch when they first meet me.  I think it's probably because I don't engage to much at a first meeting because I am forming my own opinion on whomever.  It takes me a while to warm up.  I am not shy, just calculating in my brain on whether or not I,  A: want to be nice to you, B: could handle hanging around with you for any amount of time, or C: if you can handle my personality.  Some people just cant take the truth, and I am not one to lie.  I am blunt and judgmental, but you will always know where you stand with me.  And I am one hell of a loyal friend. When we get past all the awkwardness of getting to know each other, and I decide if your worthy enough......LOL!

So there are some fun facts about me.  Now you know me a little better then you did.  And I hope it answers some of the questions about why I am the way I am!  You either love me or hate me.

Oh and on Tuesday I will have a full report of my FABULOUS weekend get away, and answers to the great "who's going to wipe the step kids ass" (literally) debate, while he's laid up for 3 weeks.  Have fun with that hubby, because I think Step mom, helping 16 year old with bathroom duties crosses a line that should never be crossed!  I will get you food, pills, change the channel, but that's as far as I go.

Have a nice weekend!
