May 2003 Archives
I really don't have a clue what possessed me when I thought I would be able to update every day this week!
It's the end of the month, aka 'hell week' for me at work, getting all my paperwork done and making sure the month balances (and with my co-workers, that takes some doing!)
couple that with the fact that I seem to be determined to update every committee page I have, and being up to my neck in code...(to which Jet said, "You're always up to your neck in code"...she's right...but it's FUN for me *s*)
posting, again, took a back seat...*sighs*
but I did find the cutest thing while cleaning out my in-box today, and with the ranting I've been doing lately about my co-workers, it's very fitting *g* you can click below to read it.
as everyone who's out there knows, whether you're a mother, father, or important in a child's life, things happen to change plans...
such as my plan to post everyday this week...middle son had OTHER plans!
I was feeling a bit down yesterday, due to it being my day off and all the kids wanting to go with their dad...which is honestly not unusual for the summertime...but still (I'm allowed to pout about it!)
about 5 min. after I got the call to tell me that, I hear a little tap at my door, so I go answer it
yea, I know, probably tmi, however, the child couldn't even say "good morning Mommy" first!
poor baby...his tummy was a bit upset. :sad
so his father and brothers went to work, and we stayed here (and played nintendo! :red) and by the end of the day, with resilience only children have, he was feeling fine and eating like a horse!! and ready to with above mentioned to Ft. Smith last night.
while I clean house, do laundry, study, and get ready to go back to work tonight :sleeping
and try to come up with another post to catch up :wavey
so I decided that since I've got a jump on it already, I'd see if I could manage to post every day this week...why? you might ask, well, check the title :biggrin
first thing I want to say is thank you to the ones that sent good thoughts and well wishes on my sisters behalf, publicly or privately...I spoke with her last night and I'm afraid she's had to do allot of growing up in the last few days, and I'm very proud of her and the progress she's making (for those that don't know, and those that have read here awhile do, my baby sis is bi-polar)
as for 'others' involved in this mess....well they better pray I don't go 'home' any time soon! :angry
ok, on to other things!!
have you ever had to deal with anyone/thing that just creep-ed you out? I mean gave you that feeling that something was just 'not right' about this person?
I don't often get those types of feelings, however, when I do they have never been wrong...so over the years (when I was younger they used to bother me) I've learned to accept and listen to them.
last night, I had to deal with a person who gave me that same sense of 'creepiness' before when I had to deal with him...he was working on my shift doing staining/painting work while we were remodeling.
he decided, for reasons unknown to me, to come in and 'chat' while I was working last night...normally I don't have a problem with this sort of thing, if I know and like/trust the person...which is not the case here.
this ASSHOLE, proceeded to tell me, not only how I should be and act in my relationship, but also (after he found out who 'dick-head' was, as I refer to my ex) that I needed to get back with him and what a wonderful, hard working, guy he was.
excuse me, you were NOT married to him for over 10 years, and really don't have a clue what you're talking about!! (and that's exactly what I told him)
so he proceeds to try and 'pump' me for information about what was 'so wrong' in my marriage
'that's really none of your business' I told him.
he obviously doesn't know me to well if he thinks that's going to work!
so he left...
and I told my co-worker this morning, if he returns on my shift and refuses to leave, the cops will be called.
I don't have to put up with that shit!
so why am I posting this crap? :hum
good question, I really don't know...maybe to put it out there and get others thoughts on it...
what would YOU have done?
yes I know most of you are probably scratching your heads and thinking "yes, she's finally gone off the deep end, doesn't she know it's Sunday?"
well you're WRONG!! I went off the deep end a longgggggggg time ago :biglaugha
and for me, today is Friday! :happydance
(I seriously need to check the alignment of the planets, posting twice in 48 hours just doesn't happen for me)
but I had to share, I finally took about 30 min. out and worked on my own pages here...not anything most would notice unless you check my archives on a regular basis...but I was inspired last night while working on templates for a friend, to check my own archive pages...:scared
need I say more? :rofl
I got some terrible news about my baby sister today... I'm not going to go into details here, but NO woman, I don't give a rats ass who she is, should have to go through that!
expecially not while in a treatment facility :let_it_all_out
yea, it's a good thing I don't still live there, people would be seriously hurt! :pummel
ok...need to go find something to work on before I go on a rant
Well after meaning to post for the better part of the week, I'm finally getting around to it!!
It's been a very busy week around here, the kids got out of school Tues. and afterward the two younger ones and I went to visit this crazy lady, (after which all they could ask about is "when do we get to go back?")
and showed her how to make the 'dolls' that she's now going nuts on...*sighs*
and finally added a countdown script here at the 'view' *g*, which I'd been wanting to do for some time...but I guess I'm kinda like the shoemaker who's kids are always barefoot...never time to work on my own site!
and on that note, I've promised to help a friend with a stylesheet...so you may now go take that nap you've been needing since you started reading this! :lol
first and foremost, I want to thank everyone for the wonderful mothers day wishes, they were very much appreciated and needed, as I had to work Saturday night (I get off at 7am), slept most of the day Sunday, got to see my kids for 'maybe' an hour (which is more than usual on the weekends, and they brought me roses *s*) and then had to be back to work last night at 11pm.
so needless to say, yesterday was not a real good day for me :-(
and I didn't get to go to all my friends blogs and wish them a happy mom's day, and for that I am very sorry! but I wanted to!! hopefully that counts for something!!
I also found out my sister will not be graduating, as the spanish test she took kicked her a** again...so this time she's actually going to take the class and graduate in August...I feel so bad for her, and of course my 'perfect sister' isn't helping matters one bit!! Thank god the baby sister got hold of the phone and gave her what for, or I'd have to go visit and give her a piece of my mind...and right now I don't have any to spare (no comments from the peanut gallery tyvm!!)
and yes, for those that don't know, I'm the oldest of 4 girls...my poor dad...the man is a saint *s*
one last thing, for my dear friend Joanna, I hope all goes well for you today gal! remember, we are all pulling for ya! *s*
you can find the strangest stuff on the web...this was found at Mandie's
I just wonder, is it good or bad that I'm in a lesser number level than her??
You have come to a place mute of all light, where the wind bellows as the sea does in a tempest. This is the realm where the lustful spend eternity. Here, sinners are blown around endlessly by the unforgiving winds of unquenchable desire as punishment for their transgressions. The infernal hurricane that never rests hurtles the spirits onward in its rapine, whirling them round, and smiting, it molests them. You have betrayed reason at the behest of your appetite for pleasure, and so here you are doomed to remain. Cleopatra and Helen of Troy are two that share in your fate.
The Dante's Inferno Test has banished you to the Second Level of Hell!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
|Purgatory (Repenting Believers)||Very Low|
|Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)||Very Low|
|Level 2 (Lustful)||Extreme|
|Level 3 (Gluttonous)||Moderate|
|Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)||High|
|Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)||Very High|
|Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)||Very High|
|Level 7 (Violent)||Very High|
|Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)||Very High|
|Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)||Moderate|
Take the Dante's Inferno Hell Test
well it looks like I have once again been neglecting my 'blogging' duties and let everything slide off into the archives :-(
in my defense, I had planed on posting last night, however we had some MAJOR storms going on here, so, instead I shut down and went to bed...which is why I'm up at this ungodly hour...well that, and my body clock is so screwed up from working nights, that it thinks it SHOULD be up anyway :-)
ok, so what have I been up to that keeps me away from you wonderful people...well lets see...
added a new blogger to my site, who is a good friend of mine and Jet's...and am working at moving 3 off to their own domain (which means I get to install MT again! *happy geek dance*)
And speaking of 'happy geeks' I got the webring up and running! For more info on that, email me privately, as it's not my own group and don't think this is the place to publicize it.
Next weekend I will be heading back home for my sisters graduation! which I am glad about, however the 'family time' involved should be interesting...at least its only for 2 days...
inside my head I don't even know how to begin with all the things going on, some of which I'm sure I will be covering later (after I make some calls) I just know I HAVE to get out of here...living under a microscope is not healthy for anyone...and there is so much more I need to do and learn in this lifetime, that is just not possible in the space I'm in right now...which I'm sure I'll elaborate on later also, right now, I only have one goal I'm focused on...and am prepared to do whatever it takes to see it through...
