I have a good tude..really.....

Last night went ok..no little games, no smart remarks, no feel good exercises for me to think about. Just the last nite of a long week. When I say week, its the full 7, we work 7 on and 2 0ff. I let myself get all pissy about the night before when...

FINALLY....he's gone

I thought for sure he was going to try and pick some kind of fight this morning or stage a tantrum, or do something that would immediately put me on the defensive. Last night the Mr. told me about a conversation he had with him and the results of said...

good lord...she's got a gun

I have had myself so upset about going armed at work I think I have made myself sick. I get all kinds of encouragement, but not always the right kind. Being told I am too thinskinned, get over it...that kind of encouragement, just doesnt do it for me....

2nd interview

So...the Mr. had his second interview...He seemed fairly upbeat about it....the interviewer didnt tell him no, only that he would be getting a call....lordy, this job thing is nerve wracking and it isnt even me having to do it, well yet anyway. I...

there I am...

those two guys in the picture are my "little guys" the one in the white hat is the one that is sick. see how his face is so round, that is what I believe the call"moon-phase" side effect of the amount of steroids he has to take to keep his disease at...

Second Interview for the Mr.

Oh thank god, he had an interview and has been called back for a second.....seems they want to test his literacy and retention.(cause he's older...he just turned 50) what the hell is that all about?what do they think, your braincells shut down before...

still a mom

I have been wrestling with writing about an issue I am dealing with.  It is my belief that no parent should have to outlive their child, and age is but a number, once a child, always a child, to the parent. I ws 25 when I had my twins..(they) were...

Write here, or write in secret?

I guess I do both. Right now I need both. Day before yeasterday, I was working on a few things here and the dogs go off, nothing new in that, but this was a furious,"someone is coming in here bark" ,scuse me....barksssss. It was the Mr.  He informs...

Every day I learn something new, sort of

Atleast I hope I do. Atleast if it sounds new, I blink, trying to register it in my memory......ya, I think I still have on of those. You would think after a lifetime of being told to watch my mouth, shut up, change your atitude, myob, I wouldnt...

still thinking, perhaps stfu isnt such a bad idea

I have been reading a few of the blogs, dam, a lot of eating disorders out there, and very young girls trying to starve themselves to please WHO? When I was a teen, a long long time ago, I did the pruge thing, hell, I could even get diet pills, was...

STFU

Busted....caught the rumor mill cranking up last night at work and stopped it in its tracks...a coworker comes out and say "did u hear the latest" and proceeded to bleat about the same issues that have been rearing their ugly little heads, except...

does anyone but god have the right to judge you

Ifound myself offended over a statement that was made to "us"...out of the blue, from outerspace or where ever it came from, it bothered the heck out of me. during a simple update hi mom call from hubby to his mom, letting her know Ething was...

here we go again

Having a few vacation days to myself, I was trying to zone, plinking games on the puter and up pops a chat box from a coworker. oh yeah. the conversation starts with "have you heard what is going on at work?" duh.....I havent been there for what,...

Taking Inventory

It sounds stupid, but its what we do when we are unlucky enough to hit the ground or some other hard object abruptly. A few weeks ago a coworker fell at work. This in itself isnt so unusual, but the size of theperson was. "He" was as he refers to...

2011....its gotta get better, really?

Uffda, I am glad the holidays are over.It was tuff this year, hell its tuff every year. I am just waiting for the winter to work its way through so I can start all over again.... Work is going to be different this year. they are working on some...

To those that have the spirit...merry...merry

I dont, but thats my problem. I am so exhausted and actually hiding from people, places and things to avoid having "xmas" crammed down my throat. If you want to do the ho ho thing, great, just dont expect me to share  whatever it is your trying...

Run Willy Run

I was working on some stuff here at my desk and started hearing these little oofs and arfs and tiny squeals and thought what the heck is that. Wheeling my chair back a few, I looked under where I had been and there was my little bestie, Willy. I...

Emotional Vampires

I know your saying WHAT???? It goes like this, one of your friends,familily...coworkers calls and starts going on with a litany of what wrong, with their life, job, spouse, home, etc. You sit there and listen, throwing in the appropiate ums, and...

Reading from a dogs point of view

I found the cutest post, seemed to be interesting as the writer kept refering to "she" and the pic was of a jack russell named Morris. well, Im hooked. I followed the thread and it took me to a wonderland of pictures by the "she" and its a post...

what gives you the right.....

I need to get this out of my head before I explode. Twice now I have been in a situation where someone(usually the rightous bluehairs) decide its their god given right to come over, poke me in the chest and inform me they : 1. dont like or are...

good morning

I am new here, dont know if this post will work, I have tried twice now and failed miserably both times.  I am painfully in need of a place to sort all these things bouncing around in my head..It helps to put it down, step back and see if I can see...
